Forums - PC Discussion - Need advice - which (Gaming-)Laptop should I get?

Hey Boys,

it's been a while.

My current Laptop is not really doing its job anymore and I need a new one and YES, it has to be a Laptop, because I am using it at work as well.
But I play during my lunchbreaks and every now and then, so I need a decent one.

Games I want to play:

  • Farthest Frontier (highly recommend it btw)
  • Counter Strike 2
  • Maybe Call of Duty Warzone

I don't want to spend too much money on it, since I have an okayish Gaming PC at home (Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 super).
Can you recommend me a decent system for ~1,500€ that can play these games easily?

Thank you!

Imagine not having GamePass on your console...

Around the Network

It depends, those titles are not that demanding. if you go for a dedicated GPU a solution with an RTX 4050 will be sufficient. You can even have a decent gaming experience on a recent laptop APU.
Since you're using it for work I'll suggest Lenovo, I love their designs and reliability, and in my opinion, fits a working environment better than some others, especially with models with some gaming capabilities (their legion lineup).

Below I used Lenovo France because it was easier to navigate for me but I believe you'll find the equivalent in other countries and hopefully with the same pricing. I think Lenovo site links are all standardized so you just have to replace the /fr/fr part with your country code to have an equivalent offering.

Lenovo Yoga 7735U (full Radeon 680m) 16 GB (999 (FR) (they're a configurable version but I'll go with the basic one, it features the best variant of CPU, and the configurable one does not let you upgrade the ram either )

Legion 5 With 16GB and RTX 4050 (1583 (FR))

Legion 5 With 32 GB RAM and a very potent RTX4070 (1899€ (FR)) That's the one I'd go for, but I work & primarily game on a laptop

I'm not too familiar with European pricing but all option above seems reasonable and in line with their capabilities especially since they all feature some discount right now.

Ode to a masterpiece

2023 so many great games to play, somehow I know I must walk that alley, but don't you feel in disarray, I'll always come back to you Stardew Valley.

A RTX 4060 upwards would give ample room.

Quality build laptops highly customizable depending on your needs.
