Picture of the top Gaming Laptops at PB Tech

Today we’re having a look at 5 of the most affordable and most powerful Gaming Laptops available today at PB Tech, with new additions from MSIRazer, HP Omen, Asus, Aorus and Alienware all vying for the top spots! Some of the laptops in our list are very new, others are sporting lots of reviews to check out - whichever the case, all laptops below offer the excellent performance for your dollar!

Quick list! PB Tech Top 5 Gaming Laptops

  1. Acer Nitro 5 GTX 1650 Laptop
  2. Asus TUF FX505 GTX 1650 Laptop 
  3. Acer Nitro 7 GTX 1660 Ti Laptop 
  4. HP OMEN RTX 2060 Laptop
  5. MSi Stealth RTX 2070 Laptop

We use the term "gaming" because all models below feature Nvidia ShadowPlay so you can capture or stream gameplay directly from the laptop while you play, without the need for additional hardware.

Having dedicated graphics also makes them excellent machines for photo and video editing - and if you are worried about battery life, don't be - you can temporarily disable the power-hungry Nvidia graphics and run off integrated graphics just like the ultrabooks do.

We'll be covering the best options with consideration for both the design of the chassis and the component specs used within, the price is our primary factor for the position on the list (price/performance for the win!).

1. Acer Nitro 5 GTX 1650 Gaming Laptop

The Acer Nitro 5 GTX 1650 Gaming Laptop will change the way you look at gaming laptops. It exceeds expectations, housing impressive hardware within a reasonably compact chassis sleek Inside we find the popular i5-9300H (4 Core / 8 Thread) + 4GB GTX 1650 combo, with 8GB RAM and a very quick 256GB PCIe solid-state drive also.

The chassis for this model is exceptional yet understated, with dark durable plastics that look clean. The design is thoughtful, with ample ventilation hidden underneath - and speaking of cooling, Acer laptops are fine-tuned to be noticeably quieter under load. Audio-wise you're in for a treat with the Nitro series too, integrated speakers are ready for everything from music & movies to conference calls.

This series of Acer Gaming Laptops is certainly powerful, yet also rather affordable - check out the Acer Nitro 5 GTX 1650 Gaming Laptop at PB Tech today!

2. Asus TUF FX 505 GTX 1650 Gaming Laptop

Kicking things up notch, next up we have the Asus TUF Gaming FX505 which features the latest Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Graphics paired perfectly with the popular Ryzen 5 3550H 4 Core / 8 Thread CPU and 16GB of fast DDR4 RAM. Storage for this model is remarkably fast also, with a 512GB PCie SSD installed, along with a 120Hz display for high FPS gaming.

Being a part of the Asus TUF range it's got that beautiful narrow bezel edging the display, and MIL-STD-810G for certified durability (For those who want to know more, you can check out the MIL-STD-810G standard here). The FX505 series has won the RedDot Design Award, a credit to their well-thought-out shape and durability, these gaming laptops ideal for both leisure and everyday work.

This Asus laptpp really is super tough to beat, so good is the price/performance of this particular model that it's hard to justify spending more. The 15.6" design even allowed Asus to use a full-sized keyboard with excellent spacing, and this, combined with the performance, makes this one pretty great for business use, or at school, or for a lot of gaming... pretty much everything you want to do :)

3. Acer Nitro 7 GTX 1660 Ti Gaming Laptop

Next up we have the powerful 15.6" Acer Nitro 7 laptop which, much like our current #1, packs impressive specifications into a very sleek body.

Although it might look similar, this specific Acer Nitro much more powerful, with a 6GB GTX 1660 Ti + Intel i7-9750H 6 Core 12 Thread CPU + 16GB RAM combo pushing out frames like an absolute champion. While it doesn't have the MIL-spec durability of the Asus models above, it's still very well built with excellent hinges and a frame that's built to last.

Overall, this specific Acer Nitro 7 is a great choice for those looking for gaming-grade power, without any bling. Get yourself the Acer Nitro 7 GTX 1660Ti Laptop at PB Tech today!

4. HP OMEN RTX 2060 Gaming Laptop

We're getting into some crazy high specification with this one, but luckily for us, every part of HP OMEN laptop design serves to improve system stability and efficiency.

The dual fans are symmetrically placed to maximize airflow through the system. They pump warm air out the back, where the patented trapezoid-cut lid avoids interference with the exhaust vents, increasing thermal efficiency by up to 25% over traditional designs. The ADC system has an exclusive internal design that forces dust particles and dirt to exit the chassis through two anti-dust tunnels located at the edges of the fans. This prevents the thermal fins from becoming caked in grime, preserving performance in the long run to improve both system longevity and reliability.

With this specific HP OMEN RTX 2060 Gaming Laptop we also get a 144Hz display, to keep things looking super smooth while we scroll through massive files, or play our favourite games!

5. Razer Blade Stealth RTX 2070 Gaming Laptop

Finishing up our current top 5 we have this mighty Razer Blade Laptop with its insanely quick 240Hz display!

Reaching 240FPS is tough for a laptop, and even with the RTX 2070 + Intel i7-9750H + 16GB RAM inside you won't be able to hit this all the time, in every game - but in something like Overwatch with the settings just right - it's a sight to behold!

If you're looking for the best price/performance in the high end this is the one, while not as slim as something like the Asus Zephyrus or Gigabyte AERO series, which share similar specs, the slightly larger size and that display edge this MSI Stealth RTX 2070 Gaming Laptop into pole position.
