Best Gaming Laptops 2014

August 27, 2014by Michael WallReads (41,827)

If you’re looking to play the latest PC games, but also want the ability to play on the go your best bet is a high-end game,best,apple,laptop gaming laptop. Of course with any gaming laptop, you’ll want excellent performance. That means fast processors, top of the line graphics cards, ample RAM, and loads of memory to store your game collection.

Not too long ago, buying a gaming laptop meant choosing from a vast array of hulking 15-inch or 17-inch desktop replacements, but with the introduction of Intel’s new Haswell processors and Nvidia’s new line low powered NVidia GeForce GTX GPUs, manufacturers have been able to cram more power into smaller packages.  

While the added variety is great for consumers, it can make finding the right gaming laptop a bit more challenging. To help ease your purchasing decision, we’ve collected five of the best gaming laptops including high-powered desktop replacements, portable gaming solutions, and everything in between.

Normally when it comes to gaming laptops consumers need to make a choice: Do you want the powerful desktop replacement that offers market leading specs but is difficult to travel with, or do you want something that is portable but not as powerful? With the Aorus X7v2, gamers don’t have to choose.

Combining the power of a desktop replacement with the portability of a traditional laptop, the Aorus X7v2 offers the best of both worlds. Equipped with a pair of NVidia GeForce GTX 860M SLI enabled GPUs, along with a powerful 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7 processor, and upwards of 32 GB of RAM the Aorus is capable of handling any game on the market with blazing fast performance. Even more impressive is that the device manages to offer such competitive performance levels in an attractive 6.6-pound aluminum frame. Add in the colorful 17-inch display and attractive aesthetic and it’s clear that consumers can have their cake and eat it too with the Aorus X7v2.

One word comes to mind when thinking of the MSI GT70 Dominator 2PC: value. The MSI GT70 may not have an all-metal chassis or the slimmest profile, but the desktop replacement hits all the marks necessary to make it an excellent gaming laptop. MSI adds some serious horsepower to the GT70, soldering an additional 3 GB of DDR5 onto the machine’s already potent NVidia GeForce GTX 870M GPU; allowing the device to handle any game currently on the market with top-notch performance at a reasonable price tag. While the MSI GT70 may not look like your typical luxury device, it certainly feels like it. The responsive keyboard with customizable software, Killer DoubleShot Game Networking and vibrant 17-inch display make this desktop replacement a joy to play games on.

Offering almost every feature a gamer could want for well under $3,000 makes the MSI GT70 Dominator 2PC an excellent choice for users who want to save some money without having to make compromises on performance.

The 2014 Alienware 17 is the total package. As expected, the device is a sight to behold with its all-metal chassis design and ample eye-catching backlights. The refreshed gaming behemoth has seen some significant upgrades to its innards, including either NVidia’s new line of GeForce GTX GPUs or AMD’s upgraded graphics cards along with a faster Core i7 processor. The higher-end build offers arguably the best performance on the market (excluding custom built laptops), while the bright colorful 17-inch display goes toe to toe with the MSI GT70’s as one of the best gaming displays on the market.

The Alienware 17 is a master class in performance and design, but with the higher-end builds costing between $3,000 and $4,000, it may be a bit too expensive for most consumers.

Alienware 17 Review (2014 Edition)

If you’re looking for something to travel with, the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro is an excellent choice. Boasting a slim 0.78-inch profile and attractive magnesium alloy design, it’s one of the lightest gaming laptops on the market at only 4.2 pounds. Equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor, NVidia GeForce 860M GPU and upwards of 16 GB of RAM the laptop isn’t a slouch when it comes to performance either. While most portable gaming laptops cut down on weight by shrinking the screen, the MSI GS60 pro features a crisp 15.6-inch WQHD (2,8080 x 1,620 resolution) display. All of that combined with the device’s relatively affordable price makes the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro an enticing offer.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p

Even a year after its release it’s hard to find a better deal than the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p. With a high-quality portable brushed aluminum chassis design, a responsive backlit keyboard and reliable performance capable of handling the latest games the Y510p offers everything you could want from a sub $1,000 laptop.  

While any configuration of the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p is a bargain, the best deal is the higher-end builds offering the dual SLI-enabled NVidia GT 750M GPUs, with 4 GB of DDR5 at around $1,000; it’s an absolute steal.

The 17 best educational games of the 70s, 80s and 90s

If you grew up in America during the 1970s, 80s, or 90s, it’s likely that you played at least one educational computer game—either at school, at home, or even on your mom or dad’s computer at work. These games sought to entertain as well as educate with the clichéd goal of “making learning fun.” And, honestly, some were fun enough to play voluntarily.

Under consultation with PCWorld and Macworld, I’ve peeled back the pages of time to examine some of the best educational games of the classic PC era. For clarity’s sake, we’re limiting this article to personal computer-based titles, so you won’t find any console games on the list. When you’re done reading, please tell us your favorite educational titles in the comments below. Ready to go back to school? Then let’s get started.Lemonade Stand (1979)

publisher: Apple Computer; platforms: Apple II

Lemonade Stand is a predictably lemon-themed business simulator first created in 1973 by famous educational publisher MECC. Its most popular edition shipped as a sample program with Apple II computers in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In the game you play as a grade school tycoon who sets up a cutthroat curbside lemonade shop made out of cardboard (ok, maybe I’m reading too much into this), and you have to decide how to control inventory, set your prices, and advertise based on weather conditions. The gameplay is entirely text-based, aside from the rare weather report screen, but it is surprisingly addictive. I suddenly find myself getting very thirsty.MasterType (1981)

publisher: Lightning Software; platforms: Apple II, Commodore 64, MS-DOS

If you like typing—and who doesn’t?—as well as UFOs, you will love MasterType, which encourages players to learn QWERTY keyboarding skills by blasting away word aliens that approach your innocent spaceship. If space travel were really like this, Neil Armstrong would have been the best typist of all humankind. But then again, he may have never made it to the moon.

Thanks to a recently developed JavaScript Apple II emulator, you now can play the original Apple II version of MasterType online thanks to the Internet Archive.Rocky’s Boots (1982)

publisher: The Learning Company; platforms: Apple II, MS-DOS

In this 1982 educational classic named after a 1968 Beatles song, you play as a square—how’s that for character detail?—who encounters logical puzzles in various rooms that have been set up by a devious raccoon named Rocky. This poor square’s goal is to use logic gates to build circuits that will instruct a boot to kick a colored block. If it all sounds pointless, you’re not an electronic engineer. And yet this complex title was beloved by parents and educators of the time precisely for its ability to educationally torture your brain.

By the way, this game was developed by Warren Robinett, the creator of Adventure on the Atari 2600. In that game, the player also controls a square—while fighting a dragon that looks like a duck. I can’t decide if there is any latent symbolism to all of this, or if Robinett was just terrible as designing computer graphics.The Oregon Trail (1982)

publisher: MECC; platforms: Apple II, MS-DOS, Macintosh

In the pantheon of American educational computer games, The Oregon Trail reigns supreme. So many kids played this game in school computer labs across the US that it has become a shared cultural meme, spawning ironic T-Shirts about dysentery and spoofs like zombie-themed The Organ Trail. In the real game, settlers hitch up a covered wagon with their family and try to make their way across the untamed Western territories while fending off rivers, bears, broken cart wheels, and various once-common, horrible diseases that we can now make fun of in industrialized nations thanks to vaccines.Reader Rabbit (1984)

publisher: The Learning Company; platforms: Apple II, MS-DOS, Macintosh

Reader Rabbit teaches kids something, but I can’t figure out what it is—maybe something involving understanding letters and words, and maybe figuring out what they mean when strung together into a long sequence. Or maybe it’s just a car and bus simulator. Either way, it must have worked well, because it was an award-winning, critically acclaimed title that inspired many sequels over the following 25 years, including a recent game for the Nintendo Wii. You can now play the original 1984 game online thanks to the Internet Archive. When you’re done, let me know what it’s all about.Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? (1985)

publisher: Brøderbund Software; platforms: Apple II, Commodore 64, MS-DOS

If you’re like me, you can’t read the title of this game without the theme song of the similarly titled 1990s TV show running through your head. That show existed due to the popularity of the Carmen Sandiego series, which taught kids culture and geography while chasing the super spy Carmen throughout various locales. In the first game (published in 1985), players would chase Carmen throughout world cities, and in the very successful sequels, she could be found hiding across the USA and even through time itself. Number Munchers (1986)

publisher: MECC; platforms: Apple II, MS-DOS, Macintosh

Most people remember The Oregon Trail as the most popular game in the computer lab, but at my school, kids literally fought over the chance to play Number Munchers (or any of its Munchers-related sequels) on the Apple II or IBM PC.  game,best,apple,laptop They loved it so much that teachers used it as a reward for finishing a test early. In the game, you play as a green stilt-legged creature who must eat the correct numerical answers to the questions or problems shown on the top of the screen. But watch out for those monstrous baddies, who apparently hate math.Odell Lake (1986)

publisher: MECC; platforms: Apple II, Commodore 64

Imagine if you were a fish, and if every time you came upon another fish (I mean every time), you had to stop and decide: “Should I eat it, ignore it, chase it, or escape?” You’d be so paralyzed with choices that you wouldn’t get anything done. And yet that’s exactly what happens in Odell Lake (with a timer no less!), which plays like a neurotic fish’s nightmare, complete with a flesh-devouring otter. Odell Lake could be found in thousands of Apple II school computer labs throughout the US in the 1980s, and we happily played it—especially if it meant that we didn’t have to do any real work for those few minutes of the week.

(By the way, you can relive the fish nightmare today in a web browser thanks to the Internet Archive.)Mixed Up Mother Goose (1986)

publisher: Sierra On-Line; platforms: MS-DOS, Amiga

In this Roberta Williams-developed classic, Mother Goose is all mixed up. I mean, she can’t find anything. Ms. Goose isn’t specific about how it happened, but apparently a huge wind has come through the fairytale kingdom and blown various key nursery rhyme-related objects (e.g., lost sheep, a fiddle, a candlestick) all over the place. Your job, as a kid just shipped in from dreamland, is to clean up the mess by returning the objects to their rightful owners. This title received several re-releases over time that incorporated graphical improvements. But in every release, everything still gets mixed up. Sigh. You can’t change a person, really.Super Solvers: Treasure Mountain (1990)

publisher: The Learning Co.; platforms: MS-DOS, Macintosh, Windows

In Treasure Mountain, your goal is to climb—get this—a mountain while collecting as much treasure as possible. (I concede they picked a pretty good title for the game.) Along the way, you try to catch elves with your elf-net. Once caught, the feisty elves quiz you with a question, and if you get it right, they provide a clue that helps you find more treasure. Along the way, players learn mountaineering, unrestrained materialism, elf-kidnapping skills, and, of course, logical thinking. It’s a fun game.Spelunx and the Caves of Mr. Seudo (1991)

publisher: Brøderbund Software; platforms: Macintosh

Before brothers Rand and Robyn Miller created the smash-hit adventure title Myst in 1993, they developed a series of playful, semi-educational adventure/exploration games for the Macintosh, including The Manhole (1988), Cosmic Osmo and the Worlds Beyond the Mackerel (1989), and this title, Spelunx, in 1991. All three titles utilized Apple’s novel HyperCard multimedia platform as their game engine, and all three immersed the player in gloriously illustrated, fantastical worlds where your brain was free to wander while tinkering with interactive toys sprinkled throughout the various screens.Castle of Dr. Brain (1991)

publisher: Sierra On-Line; platforms: MS-DOS, Macintosh, Amiga

Apple MacBook (Early 2009) Review


Priced like a MacBook should be (compared to Unibody)Runs coolMature design, most of the kinks are goneGreat battery lifeNVIDIA 9400MFireWire!


Specs are still too low for my liking (RAM and especially HDD)

When I looked at the Unibody MacBook a little while ago I liked almost everything about it. What I disliked most about the notebook was its sticker price. Apple decided to make the new MacBook more expensive than previous versions since it’s built like a MacBook Pro but lacks some of the high-end features.

What I was hoping for from a new MacBook was a device that would be competitive with the $500 Windows notebooks crowding the shelves of most computer retailers. I don’t mean something priced that low, but rather something closer to the average person’s notebook budget. Most folks can live with the decent construction techniques of the iBook/MacBook design. I thought that was the whole point of having the MacBook and MacBook Pro line-ups; different strokes for different folks.

Perhaps Apple realized that they were under represented in the value segment, so they released an updated white plastic MacBook based on the Nvidia 9400M IGP chipset. A few key benefits of the new aluminum model are stripped away to bring this model down to Apple’s traditional pricing for one of their starter notebooks $999.00.

Let’s take a quick look at the specifications:Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 2.0GHz CPU with 25 Watt TDPNVIDIA GeForce 9400M IGP with shared memory13″ WXGA High-Definition Display With 1280 x 800 Resolution120GB SATA Hard Drive (5400 RPM)2GB 667MHz DDR2 System Memory (dual channel mode)Superdrive 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer SupportOS X 10.5iWork 09 (pre-installed)

$999 MacBook (left) and $1,299 MacBook (right)

Build and DesignThe first difference between the plastic MacBook and its Aluminum sibling is the elimination of aluminum and glass from the materials. This model has the white plastic polycarbonate we have known and loved through the years. Like its predecessors (of which I owned three generations) build quality is hit and miss. There are small gaps where panels come together, and the battery still sticks out a wee bit. Controlling tolerances with plastic construction is harder than when using metal.

In terms of creaks and noise while using it, this MacBook is almost silent. The flexy and fragile feeling plastic hinge on this MacBook is no match for the Aluminum model’s hinge. Rather than a LCD latch mechanism all MacBooks use a magnetic latch.

In terms of game,best,apple,laptop size, nothing has changed. MacBooks are tough to beat if a small notebook is what you need. Dimensions are: height 1.08 inches (2.75 cm), width 12.78 inches (32.5 cm), depth 8.92 inches (22.7 cm), weight 5.0 pounds (2.27 kg). This is thicker and slightly heavier than the Aluminum MacBook. I had to check that twice because you would expect the Aluminum Body and Glass screen of the unibody MacBook to weigh more, not less.

Port layout on this MacBook is sparse; on the left side you get Kensington lock, microphone, headphone, one Firewire 400, two USB 2.0, mini-DVI and Ethernet ports. An integrated card reader would be a great addition in my opinion.

A tiny 60 Watt power adapter is included that adds about half a pound to the travel weight. MacBook uses Apple’s Mag Safe connector. This innovation eliminates a few risks from notebooks; for example a sudden yank of the cord releases the magnetic connector before the notebook is pulled off the table or the socket breaks.

ScreenAnother feature left off of this basic MacBook is an LED back light. As a result the screen on this notebook is nowhere near as bright as the one on my Aluminum MacBook. Its plastic screen coating is high gloss, but not as bright as the glass screen on the Aluminum MacBook.

For a screen this size, the MacBook’s 1280 x 800 is a good resolution. Text size and the amount of usable screen real estate are decent. If you plan on doing any video or photo work an external monitor will be a good idea. Colors are washed out compared to the Aluminum MacBook. Viewing angles are good horizontally and poor vertically – this is what I have come to expect from consumer notebooks. Pressing fingers firmly against the back did not cause ripples in the LCD display. Above the display is the iSight webcam and what appears to be stereo microphones.

Keyboard and TouchpadApple’s chiclet keyboard is starting to appear in many competitor’s products for good reason, key travel is short and the action is quiet (although not as quiet as Aluminum MacBook’s keyboard). The base reassuringly flex-free.

The next omission is the fancy touch pad from the new Aluminum MacBook. Rather than the new over-sized glass design without the customary single button, this model uses a more traditional wide aspect ratio single button pad. It is a little fussier to setup than the glass version, but it works great once you have dialed the settings to suit your preferences. While not quite as good as the new version, this is still one of the better input devices you’ll find on a computer.

The omission of a glass trackpad means that you won’t be using Apple’s full multi touch capabilities. What you will be missing is the ability to rotate pictures, increase/decrease zoom and even change the screen magnification with the touch pad.

Technical SpecsThe MacBook’s CPU is common in this price range; Intel’s Core 2 Duo P7350 CPU. This is a Penryn-3M medium voltage chip. What does this mean?It’s made using 45nm process making it smaller and cooler runningIt has 3MB of level two cache versus 2MB in last year’s value processorsBenefiting from the Penryn architectural advancements makes it about 15% faster than last year’s Merom-based budget CPUs clock for clockThe latest front side bus speed of 1066MHzMedium voltage means that it consumes less power, improving battery lifeMiserly power consumption produces less heat, about 25% less than last year

MacBook uses NVIDIA’s 9400M chipset (comparable to the desktop nForce 730i). This is a core logic chipset that incorporates integrated graphics (IGP). Before we get to the video system, let’s look at the basic features. As a Centrino 2 alternative it features many of the same characteristics; faster Front Side Bus (FSB) speed of 1066MHz with DDR3 or DDR2. Unlike Intel, NVIDIA packages all on the chipset’s features into a single small chip – it uses space more efficiently.

Apple offers the base MacBook with only 2GB of inexpensive and easy to find DDR2 667 RAM. Most competitors offer 4GB at this price so Apple’s stinginess with RAM is a disappointment. Sure, you can get 4GB on sale for $30 but you shouldn’t have to. Apple’s operating system conserves memory pretty well and runs fine with only 2GB.

NVIDIA’s GeForce 9400M video system is one of the faster integrated solutions along with the AMD RADEON Mobility 3200. However, this only gets it to the ankle level of powerful mobile GPUs. Apple and NVIDIA each claim that this solution is 5x as powerful as Intel’s latest. Apple describes the chip as having 256MB of dedicated shared memory – very misleading. As an IGP it uses 256MB of system memory leaving you with approximately 1750MB free to run programs. In the Aluminum MacBook, fast DDR3 helped the 9400M post some very good benchmark scores. It will be interesting to see how slower DDR2 changes the equation.

Before we test whether it can handle recent games, here are some of the salient points:55nm fabrication process makes it smaller and cooler running16 parallel processing unitsDirectX 10 and OpenGL 2.1 support – these are the newest graphics APIs256MB of shared 128-bit DDR2 memory running at 667MHzNVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology including HDCP HDTV outputPowerMizer 8.0 microcontroller reduces temps and power useNVIDIA CUDA processor accelerates next-generation applicationsNVIDIA PhysX-ready

How much of these GPU features are used in OS X 10.5 is debatable. I did not see much evidence of it.  Video playback was good, but that could just be the CPU doing its job. Encoding in iMovie did not appear to be much faster than previous Core 2 Duo Macs – GPU acceleration makes a big difference, so if it was on we would know. Whether future software updates enable PureVideo acceleration, CUDA and PhysX remains to be seen. Hopefully you won’t have to upgrade to 10.6 to see benefits.

12 Best Laptops Under $2000 in 2021 [High Performance] - InternetOutsider.Com

Laptops have become an essential part of our life nowadays due to the evolution of technology. Most professionals prefer portability, and laptops come in handy to fingame,best,apple,laptop ish the work while sitting outdoors. But when we talk about choosing an ideal option, it is confusing to find a good laptop with a budget of $2000 because there are so many options available under this price range. But don’t worry, we are here to help you find the best laptop under $2000 and other casual work. For gaming, it becomes mandatory to accommodate a dedicated graphics card and good battery capacity.

The more powerful GPU and high refresh rate display are responsible for the smooth gaming experience you will get with your laptop. In this article, we will list some of the best gaming laptops under $2000. Obviously, after paying a hefty price of $2000, you aren’t only playing games all day. Therefore, these laptops are perfect for professional works like video editing, photo editing, 3D modeling, machine learning, and other graphics-intensive works. You can easily run some of the best software used by professionals, including Autocad, Blender, Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Solidworks, and many others. Without any further delay, let’s get started!

Recommend: Best Gaming Laptops under $2000Buying Guide – How to decide which is the best laptop under $2000?

Here are a few important things that can affect your decision of buying the best laptop for you under 2000 dollars:Processor

The processor is the heart of any computer machine and plays an important role in processing data. The more powerful processor means you can smooth process the high-end tasks without any major problem. The budget of $2000 is more than enough to get the best-in-class processor. You should go for at least a 10th generation i7 processor. But if you are looking for an affordable choice, you can also consider buying an i7 9th generation processor, which is slightly less powerful than the 10th generation.

The latest 11th generation Intel series is there to serve you if you want to utilize the full potential of your spending. Other than that, if your core purpose is gaming, the AMD Ryzen can get you better results in handling a heavy workload. The most powerful processor in this range is AMD Ryzen 9. But picking a Ryzen 7 is not bad if you want some cost-cutting and focus on other requirements. Apart from that, we suggest you go with the latest 5000 series, which is easily accessible in this price range.Graphics Card

Graphics card AKA GPU is equally important to look for as the CPU is. It is a considerable unit if your core purpose is gaming or video editing. Most of the laptops we have listed arrive with a dedicated graphics card, and it is imperative to avoid any bottleneck while performing graphics-intensive tasks.

The minimum required graphics for playing high-end games is the RTX 2060. There are multiple graphics card variants, where Max-Q design is for lightweight laptops, while “Ti” & “Super” are to get the best performance. We recommend going for at least RTX 2070 GPU if you are a gamer. There is the latest RTX-30 (RTX 3050, RTX 3060, RTX 3070, RTX 3080) series. Hence, you can also consider RTX 3070, which is the successor of RTX 2070.RAM & Storage

The RAM also plays an important role in reminding the operations of computers. More RAM means you can smoothly run multiple tasks at the same time. There is more RAM required if you want to run AAA titles. At least 16GB of RAM is necessary for any gaming laptop. The good thing is that it is easily available in this price range. If you get the option to get more RAM, this is even better. But the 16GB RAM is essential for lag-free performance.

As far as storage is concerned, it helps you to store important files. You should get at least 512GB of SSD storage. But multiple options are offering up to 1TB SSD. It is more on personal preference how much data you want to store on your laptop. You have an additional option available of getting an external storage unit. But internal storage is always better because it is not conventional to always carry an external drive.Display

Picking the right display is important if you are a professional editor or want to play games smoothly. If you are a gamer, you should give preference to the refresh rate. A high refresh-rate display means you can run games smoothly for an enhanced gaming experience. But for professional work like photo editing or video editing, you need a color-accurate display. For this, you need more RGB or Adobe RGB coverage. Hence, it is recommended to get a laptop with 100% RGB coverage.

Further, you can solve this problem by purchasing a good monitor, which most professional people prefer. In the meantime, the display size is a personal preference. Some people prefer a larger display, while others are okay with smaller panels. The resolution is another factor that can impact your decision. A Full HD to QHD display is recommended for gaming, while the 4K UHD is good for other professional works like video editing or image editing.Design & Portability

Most of the gaming laptops arrive with heavyweight just because of more & complex components used inside. You have to sacrifice portability if you want excellent performance. The ideal weight for a gaming laptop is around 5 pounds. So, you should be okay if you are getting a laptop under this weight.

On the other hand, there are thin & lightweight laptops are available for professional work. There are highly portable and lightweight. The material used for the construction is very high quality. The metal design gives a very stylish look, while most gaming laptops are made of plastic to escape heating issues.Battery Life

A long-lasting battery is a requirement for some people who do a lot of traveling. Good battery life for a gaming laptop is around 3-4 hours. The gaming laptops drain the battery very quickly to boost performance. That is the major reason you need to compromise with the battery life if you own gaming laptops.

Picking a non-gaming laptop is the ideal choice for people to spend more time outdoors. Laptops like Macbook Pro and XPS 13 claim to deliver more than 10 hours of battery, which are exceptional options from a battery perspective.Best Laptops under 2000 dollars in 2021

Here is the list of best laptops under $2000 you can consider buying in 2021:

1ASUS ROG Strix G15 (2021) (Most Powerful Laptop under 2000)

The Apple M1 MacBook Pro 13 is its best laptop, ever.How We Tested Laptops

Credit:Reviewed / Jackson Ruckar

We test everything from processing capability to screen brightness.The Testers

I'm Joanna Nelius, Senior Editor of Electronics at Reviewed. I've been reviewing gaming products game,best,apple,laptop and laptops for the last several years, having written for PC Gamer, Maximum PC, and Gizmodo in the past. In addition to gaming desktops and laptops, I also specialize in CPU and GPU reviews.

Hey there, I’m Adrien Ramirez, tech staff writer and laptop reviewer here at Reviewed. I’ve been working professionally with tech and PCs for six years, from game development to reviewing and everything in between. Before I came to Reviewed, I had worked with Lifewire and the MIT Game Lab. I’m passionate about all things tech, although I especially enjoy PCs. It takes a lot to make a great PC, and it takes a lot to know what a great PC looks like. It’s not just power: it’s build quality, touchpad sensitivity, keyboard ergonomics, display accuracy, aesthetics, and more. We all want our laptops and desktops to last as long as possible while giving us all the performance and comfort we need. When I’m not testing and evaluating laptops, I’m planning small-sized desktop builds.

I’m Whitson Gordon, and I’m a freelance tech writer charged with testing laptops here at Reviewed. I’ve been writing about tech professionally for almost 10 years, from building computers to setting up smart homes, and served as the editor-in-chief of Lifehacker and How-To Geek before freelancing for publications like the New York Times, PCMag, and Reviewed. This isn’t just my day job—it’s my calling. I’m obsessed with researching, testing, and finding the best possible gadget in a given category—so much so that my brother made it a central joke in his best man speech at my wedding.The Tests

Here at Reviewed, we test laptops for their processing capability, graphics, battery life, and screen brightness. We use popular benchmarks like Geekbench and 3DMark to gauge how well the laptop multitasks, runs games, and more. We also test multiple platforms, from Windows laptops to Macs and Chromebooks alike.

To test battery life, we set up our laptops to continuously cycle through various websites at a brightness of 200 nits—which is around 60% for many of the mid-range models—until they run out of power, estimating how much work you can get done on a single charge. We also use each laptop for an extended period of time, rating each on factors like build quality, price, portability, and design.What You Should Know About Laptops

When it comes to laptops, there’s a lot to consider. From display size to build quality, you definitely want a laptop that’ll last a couple of years. Here’s what you need to keep in mind:Performance

The CPU, graphics chip, RAM, and storage inside your PC determine how well your computer can multitask, handle intensive tasks like gaming, and store all your files. The better the specs, the snappier the laptop will feel as you work. Most people will be more than happy with a current-generation Intel Core i5, Apple M1, or AMD Ryzen 5, which are mid-range processors. 8GB of RAM will give you enough room to lightly multitask, but we recommend 16GB or more of RAM for future-proofing.

Graphics chip and storage size needs will vary the most depending on what you plan to run on the laptop. While Chromebooks can get away with 64GB of storage with additional cloud storage, Windows laptops need 256GB or more of storage to run optimally. 512GB hits the sweet spot for many users. For most people, there is no need for a dedicated graphics card. Modern integrated graphics are more than capable of running things like esports games or small 3D modeling files. However, if you plan to play the latest AAA games or otherwise need to run a lot of vector calculations, you should consider a discrete graphics card.Build Quality

Not only do you want a laptop that can take a beating (since you’ll probably be lugging it around with you), but you want one with a well-built keyboard and trackpad since they’re your primary form of interaction with the machine. A poor trackpad or finicky keyboard can really kill the experience.

Generally, durable laptops are stiff and hard to deform, so metal is usually more rugged than plastic. A good keyboard should be quick to type on, and your fingers should easily reach all the keys without any missed hits. Check those elements like the Shift, Control, and Fn keys aren’t awkward to reach with your thumb and pinky fingers. Whether you prefer stiff or soft keys is up to you: stiff keys are harder to accidentally press but will tire you out faster, while soft keys are easier to type on for long periods of time but can be prone to poor feedback and typos. See what’s most comfortable for you.

Trackpads are a little easier to judge. A good trackpad reads all your finger movements accurately, so the mouse won’t feel jumpy or unresponsive. A larger trackpad gives you better control of your cursor, and the trackpad should have little friction so you don’t “skip” with your cursor. Touch Screens, Portability, and Features

2-in-1s have gained in popularity, but that touch screen and pen cost money to include. Similarly, cramming all those powerful components into a small, easy-to-carry package can often cost more than a larger laptop with fewer design constraints. They’re not as comfortable to use as dedicated tablets like iPads, but 2-in-1s can provide extra options for those who need something versatile. Display pens are great for those who take a lot of notes or draw, such as students or artists. Operating Systems

Consider which operating system you need. Windows is still the dominant OS these days, and if you’re going to play games, edit photos and videos, or need certain software for work, you’ll probably stick with Microsoft’s offering. MacOS has its own exclusive software and great integration with the Apple ecosystem, so it’s the preferred option for those with iPhones, iPads, or other Apple products.

If you spend all your time on the web and want to save some money, though, a Chromebook may serve you well. Between Netflix, Gmail, and Google Docs, you can do almost anything in a browser. Many of those web apps even work offline for those rare occasions you don’t have Wi-Fi. Chromebooks have the advantage of being cheaper (since they don’t need as much processing power) and virtually bloatware-free (since they run Linux under the hood). Display Size

You’ll usually find laptops in one of three main sizes, measured by the diagonal length of the display:14 inches and under: These smaller laptops are great for carrying around, and more than suitable for light work like writing papers and browsing the web.15.6 inches: Mid-sized laptops are a bit less portable, and won’t necessarily work in space-constrained spaces like airplane seats. But the larger display is useful for photo editing and watching videos, and their larger chassis can house more powerful hardware.17 inches: This is very large, and only recommended if you are doing video editing or other intensive work that requires a lot of screen real estate—and you don’t mind lugging it around. However, there are many small form factor desktops (like the Mac Mini) that can be much simpler to transport if you’re headed somewhere with extra keyboards, mice, and monitors—or you can bring your favorite wireless keyboard and mouse for a cable-free adventure.

There can still be varying sizes within those categories—for example, the XPS 13’s smaller bezels make it much smaller than most 13-inch laptops—and sizes in between, like the 14-inch Lenovo Yoga C740. But in general, picking a size range you’re comfortable with can help narrow down the field.

You’ll also want to consider how many USB ports the laptop has, whether you need HDMI and Ethernet, and how comfortable the keyboard and trackpad are to use—this can vary quite a bit from model to model, and it’s important to get something responsive and durable.Under the Hood

Finally, you’ll need to consider the guts: the processor, graphics chip, RAM, and storage that determine your laptop’s capabilities. For browsing the web and using office software, lower-power chips (like the Intel Core i3 processor) are adequate, though midrange chips like the i5 are ideal if they’re within your budget. 4GB of RAM is usable in a Chromebook, though even web browsing can eat up RAM these days, so 8GB to 16GB is recommended if you tend to open lots of tabs, use lots of browser extensions, and want a laptop that’ll last you well into the future—I wouldn’t advise 4GB for most Windows users these days.
