Best Budget Gaming Laptops in 2021 (Almost!)

Here are some of the best deals on budget gaming laptops. I am targeting gaming laptops priced between 600 and 800 dollars. All these laptops have already been reviewed here on this channel. Purchase links to these laptops can be found in the video description below. So  without further ado, let's get started.

Acer Nitro 5

First up is the Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop powered by the 10th generation Intel Core i5-10300H processor and NVIDIA GTX 1650 GPU. This laptop is sporting 8GB of system RAM and 256GB of fast PCIe NVMe SSD. At the time of making this video, Nitro 5 was selling for a great price. In fact, you will be hard pressed to find a gaming laptop in this price range sporting intel’s latest 10th generation Comet Lake CPU. The combination of Core i5-10300H and GTX 1650 will deliver more than enough horse-power to tackle any modern 1080p game.

Dell G3 Gaming

Next up is Dell G3 Gaming laptop . Just like Acer Nitro 5, this laptop also comes with the 10th Generation Intel Core i5-10300H processor paired with NVIDIA GTX 1650 GPU, 8 GB of system RAM and 256 GB of fast PCIe NVMe SSD. But unlike Nitro 5, this laptop is rocking a 120Hz high refresh rate screen. The combination of 10th gen Intel CPU,  Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU and 120Hz high refresh rate screen means that will get an amazing gaming experience with Dell G3 gaming laptop. In my opinion this laptop delivers the best bang for bucks in this price range. Please checkout the link in the video description below for more details


Next up is Asus Tuf, one of my favorite gaming laptops. This laptop comes with Intel Core i7-9750H, a kickass gaming processor. Asus has paired this CPU with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 GPU and 8 GB of system RAM. Asus has also beefed up the disk storage, you are getting a generous 512GB of PCIe SSD storage. Combination of this Core i7 processor with GTX 1650 graphics will result in amazing 1080p gaming performance. But the star of the show is 144Hz high refresh rate screen which delivers butter smooth gaming experience. BTW the build quality on these laptops is phenomenal. Asus Tuf laptops are very rugged and they are built like a tank. For the money you cannot go wrong with Asus Tuf gaming laptop

Lenovo Ideapad L340

Next up is Lenovo Ideapad L340 Gaming Laptop. This laptop is priced very aggressively priced. For this price you are getting an Intel Core i5-9300H processor paired with NVIDIA GTX 1650 GPU. It comes with 8GB system RAM and 256 GB of PCIe NVMe SSD storage. BTW all these laptops have user upgradeable DIMM slots for adding more RAM. You also have access to the PCIe NVMe slot for replacing the existing SSD with a bigger one. While this laptop does not offer fancy high refresh rate screen, it's still a solid choice for budget 1080p gaming

HP Pavilion Gaming

Another great budget choice for 1080p gaming is HP Pavilion Gaming laptop. This laptop has identical specs as Lenovo Ideapad L340 and it is competitively priced. HP Pavilion Gaming laptop has a unique personality and more stylish gaming aesthetics which some gamers may prefer over the vanilla look and feel of Lenovo Ideapad L340 Gaming Laptop. Just like other laptops on this list, you can easily upgrade RAM and SSD on HP Pavilion Gaming laptop. I will put links to compatible RAM and SSD drives in the video description below

MSI GF75 Thin Gaming

Last but not the least is MSI GF75 Thin Gaming Laptop. This laptop is sporting a gigantic 17.3” 120Hz high refresh rate screen, which is great for immersive gaming experience. And just like Nitro 5 and Dell G3, you are getting a 10th generation Intel Core i5-10300H processor paired with NVIDIA GTX 1650 GPU and 8 GB system RAM. But MSI has doubled the storage to a generous 512GB of PCIe NVMe SSD. BTW this is a heavy gaming laptop weighing over 5 pounds. So if you are planning to lug this sucker around in your backpack, I suggest that you start hitting the gym first
