Gaming laptops under $700 US Dollars
There are so many gaming laptops under $700 US Dollars that you can choose from, but that sometime becomes crappy and also confusing. As a geek myself, I always had the scope to exchange my older models and upgrade my laptops for hardcore gaming purposes. By doing this I came across some of the best gaming laptops which are available in the market. Playing games on these laptops are super fun and also easy. Consider this article if you too are thinking of buying one recently.
1.ACER Nitro 5 gaming laptop
This laptop comes in with the powerful Intel core i6 7th generation CPU running at 2.5ghz and the GTX 1050 4GB DDR5 graphics card solutions. This is a beast to be very precise. This is because it also comes in with an 8GB DDR4 RAM and a total of 1TB HDD storage space. With the 15.6’’ full HD display, the image and gaming experience on this laptop is just beyond any explanation. Games like PUBG, Fortnite, Batman Arkham Knight can easily be played on this baby like butter on a bread. The FPS is really good.
- The full HD display is what we all need. It provides crystal-clear images and great viewing angles.
- The graphics card used in the particular model is high enough to support games at high settings.
- The size of the laptop is on the heftier side which means it is going to be heavy.
2. Acer Aspire E15, 15.6’’ gaming full HD laptop
ACER is one of the leading manufacturers of some of the best laptops on the market. Coming to the gaming laptop side, ACER has aced all the specification. Coming in with the powerful Intel 8th Generation Core i5 Coffee Lake processor with 3.4 ghz clock speed and the blazingly fast GeForce MX150 which is the equivalent of the GTX 1050 graphics card, this is a real beast and also my personal favorite. Very few laptops make use of the combination of an HDD and an SSD. This comes with a 1TB HDD and a 256GB SSD which boosts the overall performance of the laptop. This means, less loading time in games and faster graphics rendering time. This is the perfect combination for gaming and multimedia processing.
- The full HD display is what everyone desires in their laptop, this is a spot on from the brand itself.
- The combination of the HDD with SSD makes the laptop super-fast with a boot time of only 6seconds. Fast isn’t it?
- The screen size of the laptop could have been at least a 17’’ display for a better gaming experience
3.DELL Inspiron 15 5000 5577 gaming laptop
Coming in at just $644.50 US Dollars, this laptop is almost super affordable. The internal components used in this product includes the Kaby Lake Intel Core i5 7th generation processor running at a latent speed of 3.5 ghz. Such clock speeds help faster buffer speed time and help in multitasking. The laptop is powered by the NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics card with a video memory of 4GB DDR5 variant. This is optimized to provide the ultimate gaming experience to the users. This helps to game at high and ultra-settings. The viewing angles on the laptop are clear and also comes in with a total of 8GB RAM which is expandable up to 32GB. It hosts a 1TB HDD with windows 10 pre-installed.
- The full HD display on the laptop provides clear display and great viewing angles.
- The gaming experience on the laptop is great with the power of the GTX 1050 card
- The design is simple and minimal
- The lack of SSD is a real deal breaker but that might not be an issue for many.
4.DELL Inspiron 15 7000 series gaming edition 7567 15.6’’ full HD laptop
When we are talking about gaming laptops, how can we miss the brand DELL? DELL has been providing the market with some of the best gaming laptops. This one, in particular, takes a great turn. Running on the Intel core i5 7thgeneration processor at 3.5g hz this is one hell of a laptop. Being one of the best gaming laptops under $700 US Dollar, this one comes with the NVIDIA GTX 1050 4GB DDR5 graphics card which is super optimized and overclocked for the best user end experience regarding playing some of the most demanding games in the recent years like PUBG and Fortnite. This laptop is capable of handling high task works because of the 8GB RAM provided with it.
- The high-resolution display on the screen makes all the images and videos clear to watch.
- The IPS panel helps in for a better viewing angle.
- It comes in with Windows 10 pre-installed hence no wasting of time, just play
- The lack of an SSD is the real bummer
5 ASUS TUF thin and light gaming laptop PC FX504
This model sports an Intel 8thgeneration core i5 coffee lake processor running at a speed of 3.9 ghz. This is super-fast for real-time processes. This comes in with the GeForce GTX 1050 2GB DDR5 graphics card. The 2GB might seem low but it is capable of running some of the most prominent games in recent times at high settings. Coming in with a 1TB SSHD which is a hybrid HDD for better micro processing power and an 8GB DDR4 RAM this is the perfect combination for the ultimate gaming experience.
- The full HD display on this model is the best and provides the best image and video clarity
- The keyboard on this laptop is backlit and makes it easy to type and game in the dark.
- The lack of a true SSD might be a drawback which I personally don’t like.
6.Dell Inspiron 15 i5567
The Dell Inspiron 15 i5567 is one of the most affordable gaming laptops available on the market, with brand-new units going for just a little over $700. It runs on a 7th generation Intel Core i7-7500U that can go up to 3.5 GHz and comes with an 8GB DDR4 memory. The memory is a step from the DDR3 found in its predecessor, the Dell Inspiron 15 i559, which was a bit disappointing.
Lightweight and easy to pack, this budget gaming laptop includes a 15.6-inch Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen capable of showing off gorgeous visuals. In the graphics department, this laptop comes with an AMD Radeon R7 M445 with a maximum 4GB of GDDR5 video memory. This should be good enough to run modern games that don’t demand high-end graphics cards. For avid players of MOBAs like League of Legends, this laptop is perfect. But for big-budget games loaded with eye-popping visuals, this laptop isn’t the most reliable.
7. HP Pavilion 15 Gaming laptop
The HP Pavilion 15 includes a 7th generation Intel Core i7-7500U, clocked at 2.7 GHz and capable of running all the way to 3.5 GHz. It has a 12GB DDR4 memory, a 1TB SATA hard drive, and an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620. The latter pretty much explains why the HP Pavilion 15 isn’t really up to the task of running the latest games in ultra-high settings.
Our biggest gripe with the HP Pavilion 15 is that it doesn’t come with a built-in optical drive, which means you won’t be able to easily play older games that you have physical copies of. Other than that, it’s a solid option for those looking to buy a gaming laptop without spending more than $700. The gaming performance may not be on par with the Asus ZX53VW. But if you want a decent laptop that you can use for both work/school and casual gaming, the HP Pavilion 15 is a good choice.
7. MSI GL62M Gaming Laptop
MSI is one of the most popular brands in the gaming laptops department. The Taiwanese company is known for producing a wide range of laptops tailored for high-performance gaming. And the MSI GL62M from the GL Series is one of the most affordable units in the lineup.
All-black and discreet (except for that MSI logo at the back), the MSI GL62M is a powerful gaming laptop capable of running the latest games with little trouble. It boasts a 7th generation Intel Core i5-7300HQ clocked at 2.5 GHz, with the option to go up to 3.1 GHz, and an 8GB DDR4 memory. Most impressively, it features the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 with 2G of GDDR5 video memory inside the chassis, allowing it to run modern games such as Overwatch, Gears of War 4, For Honor, and DOOM at high settings in a reliable manner.
Featuring a 15.6-inch Full HD LCD display and a 256GB SSD M.2 SATA for storage, the MSI GL62M includes a SteelSeries Keyboard for precise key inputs, a Nahimic 2 Audio Enhancer for more sound immersion, a True Color technology for eye-candy visuals, and, most crucially, the Cooler Boost 4 Technology.
Backed by a 1-year warranty, the MSI GL62M has a dual-fan setup, ensuring that, along with the Cooler Boost 4 Technology, the laptop stays cool while you play games. No need to worry about the laptop overheating in the middle of a match – the cooling system easily takes care of that, allowing you to simply focus on winning.
8.Acer Aspire E5-576G-5762
An 8th gen Core i5 processor, a full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display, 8GB of dual channel DDR4 high speed RAM, and up to 15 hours of battery life. All that for close to 600 dollars, say hello to the brand-new Acer Aspire E5-576G-5762 laptop. Yes, it looks a little bland and lacks a powerful graphics card.
But let’s be honest here guys- most of the laptops in the 500 to 600-dollar lack dedicated GPUs, and the ones that have graphics cards usually feature some low-end GPU from 2015 like the GT 730, which is actually not that much more powerful than current generation integrated graphics found in most Intel Coffee Lake processors. At least the Aspire E5-576G-5762 does have a graphics card, it is just not that powerful (the NVIDIA MX150).
Intel Core i5 8250U 8th generation processor- very power efficient, 8 threads, 3.4 GHz turbo frequency
Full HD IPS display
8GB dual channel DDR4 Ram and 256 GB SSD
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Up to 15 hours of battery life (varies based on usage)
NVIDIA GeForce MX150 with 2GB dedicated GDDR5 VRAM
Looks bland and uninspiring (we know, we are trying to come up with actual negatives, but this laptop is just so good for the price)
Lacks a hard drive, you will have to add your own 2.5” SATA hard disk drive or else the storage is limited to 256 GB
9.ASUS VivoBook 15 Ultra-Thin Laptop
Extra compact, with a long battery life and NVIDIA 940MX dedicated graphics- the ASUS VivoBook 15 is an excellent choice for casual gamers, students, and businessmen. It is designed to be sleek and power efficient, but is also pretty powerful at the same time. The best part about this laptop is its 14.2” thin bezel IPS display, it is almost as if the screen is floating above the hinges without any bezels on the side (the bezel is just 0.3” thick).
Intel Core i7 7500U processor
NVIDIA 940MX graphics
8GB DDR4 RAM and 1TB HDD
0.3” Nano bezel
14.2” full HD IPS display
Extremely thin and light (o.8” thick, weighs 3.7 lbs.)
Keyboard is not backlit. You might want to suppliment the keyboard with a better quality option such as a Gaming Keypad.
Audio quality is lacking compared to other gaming laptops.
10. HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop
HP’s offering is very close to what you’d get with more gaming-focused brands like MSI, but with some minor changes.
The big draws to this model are the green backlighting and accents, and a narrow bezel design so you get more viewing area out of your 15 inch screen.
Intel’s sixth-generation i7-6700HQ Skylake processor features in the Pavilion Gaming notebook. It lies at the lower end of the chipmaker’s new set, the current top offering being the i7-6920HQ which runs at 2.9GHz compared to the i7-6700’s 2.6GHz. The processor is coupled with a GTX 950M, which was introduced to give Nvidia an upper mid-range offering in gaming notebooks.
