Apparently the price went up, when I bought it like 6 months ago it was 1300. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B087RSQGSV/ref=ppx_yo_mob_b_track_package_o0_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Got that for my son and added a 1tb SSD which was super easy.
Nitro make solid laptops, I havnt had an issue. The 15in monitor versions are cheaper too.
D: +300 dollars
I'll look at Nitro laptops, thanks!
Not really that hard to find, 1.3k is a good price point. I have some questions for you though:
1- Will you be carrying it every day?
2- do you mind not having a webcam?
3- battery life is important to you?
4- are you willing to raise your budget a little? (It's OK if you don't).
1. Later, yes, I will be bring this to a lot of places
2. Having no webcam is ok with me, in the future we will have fewer online meetings, and even so I can use an external webcam
3. Not really
4. Maybe, but I will have to pay for the extra cost, not my parents.
Hp omen 15 ($1269) - it's a six core ryzen 5 5600h with a 3060 card - https://www.hp.com/us-en/shop/ConfigureView?langId=-1&storeId=10151&catalogId=10051&catEntryId=3074457345619920323&source=aw&subacctid=753773&subacctname=GizmoSlip+LLC&adcampaigngroup=80835&awc=7168_1623363890_1dbdfdda4bfb1dc8c67e02f661e2f5d5&jumpid=af_gen_nc_ns&utm_medium=af&utm_source=aw&utm_campaign=GizmoSlip+LLC
Zephyrus G14 ($1499) - This is a 14" device without a webcam. I am recommending this to you because a 15" gaming laptop will be a bit bulky for everyday carry, and the g14 eliminates this issue. And that thing comes with a octacore ryzen 9 5900hs which is one of the most powerful cpus right now. Though gpu tdp will be a little lower than a 15" device (a little less performance, but nothing that will compromise your experience in any way), for me it is well worth it. Get a open-box deal if you are in a budget - https://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus-rog-zephyrus-14-gaming-laptop-amd-ryzen-9-16gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-rtx-3060-1tb-ssd-moonlight-white-moonlight-white/6452913.p?skuId=6452913&irclickid=WS7QTpQt-xyLUAO07OwzdzZ-UkBwuCzvMXVPRk0&irgwc=1&ref=198&loc=MagicLinks&acampID=0&mpid=52269
You can also get a g15 which is basically a g14 but bigger or a legion 5 but stock has been a issue with the latter. If you go with the zephyrus g14, you may wanna undervolt a little bit for better thermals. This review will tell you how: https://youtu.be/hSCLGbI6i9s
As another recommendation, get a gaming mouse, a great budget option is the logitech g305, some earbuds or headphones would also be appreciated because gaming laptops can get loud. Wouldn't be a bad idea to get a second monitor for productivity later on.
Hey! Not bad! Thank you for the suggestions :D Checking them out rn
Hi, I'm sure that we find a solid gaming laptop for an affordable price. I recommend the [**Acer Predator Helios 300**](http://techneeeq.com/blog/index.php/product/acer-predator-helios-300-gaming-laptop-intel-i7-10750h-nvidia-geforce-rtx-3060-6gb-15-6-full-hd-144hz-3ms-ips-display-16gb-dual-channel-ddr4-512gb-nvme-ssd-wifi-6-rgb-keyboard-ph315-53-71hn/). It is a very well known and well reviewed device. It comes with a 6-core i7-10750H processor, RTX 3060 graphics, 16 GB RAM, a 512 GB SSD, and a 1080p 15.6" 144Hz IPS display. This combination can run modern games at ultra settings at 1080p easily.
:O good, looking for 60 frames at max settings ;P
Great, let me know if you have any questions.
You can go for the **[ASUS - ROG Zephyrus G14](https://www.rapiddeal.net/product/asus-rog-zephyrus-g14-ga401iv-br9n6/)** as it is a powerful and portable gaming laptop. It has a powerful processor and GPU combo that will be able to game well for years to come as well as run intense programs smoothly. It has a 95% sRGB coverage so it is great for graphics work. It is very lightweight so it is great as a student laptop as well. One of its USB Type-C ports can be used to charge the laptop or to output a DisplayPort 1.4 signal. Additionally, it has a long battery life so you don't have to bring your charger with you
14" Ultra-Slim Gaming Laptop - AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q 24GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB PCIE SSD, Backlit Keyboard, Windows 10 Home Moonlight White
If you can push your budget a little higher, then I would recommend this [Lenovo Legion 5](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08Q7BL7N1/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20)
Because it comes with AMD Ryzen 4800H 8-Core CPU which is one of the best in your budget and great for your usage, 16GB of RAM for smooth multitasking, Good SSD storage of 512GB for faster boot up and loading, 15.6 inch Full HD IPS screen which is a must have for this price range, it comes with RTX 2060 GPU, 100% sRGB coverage and good color gamut, and high build quality.
The 3600 is a desktop CPU.
This should fit your needs
