Recent Budget Gaming Laptop Reviews

HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop - 15-ec1010nr

This laptop is everything I wanted. The speed is great and I’m now able to play the games I wanted to play before but couldn’t.

HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop - 16t-a000

Bought this HP gaming laptop with features we selected, for my grandson and I to share as my old HP laptop is just that-old, and not meant for gaming. I wanted green as eventually this will be my laptop we think. HP is always reliable and we wanted elements of gaming that my grandson uses to go with basic for my shopping, emails and research. As it turns out I am still using my old red laptop-it is about 7 years old-as it runs great now that no one is trying to use it for gaming. .

My son uses this laptop for both school and gaming and we are very happy with its performance. It loads quick, the keys are comfortable and it had a nice sleek design.

HP makes high-end gaming affordable for all

Getting your head in the game takes more than concentration, skill, and precision, it takes a mighty computer with a slew of impressive specs to bring your game to the next level. Though gaming computers typically are more costly than your everyday computer, when you shop with HP, it’s easy to find a high-quality, high-performance budget gaming laptop that’s just one click away.
HP had earned a star-studded reputation as one of the world’s most pioneering leaders in modern computer technology. With the age of gaming growing more omnipresent than ever before, we’ve stepped up to the plate to answer the call for more affordable gaming laptops.

HP expertise lies in our ability to build superpowered gaming laptops that do more than live up to expectations. Go beyond mediocrity and start climbing the leaderboards the moment you upgrade to an HP gaming rig.

What is a gaming laptop?

Though gaming laptops and ordinary laptops may feature the same clamshell form factor, it’s what’s on the inside that sets the two apart. Gaming laptops are specially designed to accommodate the demanding hardware specs of today’s most popular gaming titles.
Gamers require beefed-up processors, graphics cards, storage capacity, and RAM capability to load up all of the extraordinary adventures that await on their desktops.
In essence, gaming laptops are master machines supremely engineered to deliver consistently powerful performance without any lag. A great gaming laptop can play the most processing-intensive games at fast, uninterrupted speeds, while giving you stunning visuals, responsive feedback, and none of the frustration sometimes associated with such heavy computing.

What should you look for in a budget gaming laptop?

1. Processor

Think of the computer processor (CPU) as the brain of your laptop. The more intelligent the brain, the more capable the machine. When it comes down to performance, the processor has the largest impact on the potential of your PC. On you hunt for the perfect budget gaming laptop, be sure to do your fair share of research on the type of processor that best suits your needs.
HP gaming laptops feature two primary types of processors; AMD® and Intel®. Both have shining reputations within the gaming community, so you can rest assured knowing whatever choice you make is a great one.

2. Graphics card

Video game graphics have become such an important part of the gaming experience that the PC buying process has evolved around prioritizing graphics cards above the vast majority of other important specs. HP’s collection of budget gaming laptops are home to highly-lauded NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics cards, bringing your favorite fantasy worlds to vibrant, crystal-clear life.

3. Price

No matter how big or small of a budget you’re working with, price matters. Though gaming laptops can teeter into prices that are well over 1,000, HP gives you access to all of that gaming goodness for an affordable price. Our budget gaming laptops start at $650 and range higher with more impressive specs and offerings.

What lines of gaming laptops does HP carry?
