The best gaming notebooks feature an excelling graphics card and high efficiency for multimedia functions.

Good configuration is the first requisite to consider, and with the latest graphics cards designed for them, gamers should settle for nothing less than the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M or AMD Radeon HD 6990, the top on the market. Additionally multimedia games require a good Quad processor like the Core i5, and if you are willing to stretch your budget the Intel Core i7; along with lots of RAM, say 4 GB or more and a large HDD of 500 GB.

Secondly gaming laptops are benefited from large screens, so go for one that has a 15 to 18 inch display to avail better clarity while playing. This awkward size and the fact that they generally have rather poor battery life make gaming laptops a bad bet for travellers.

  • The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is a 2-in-1 that offers solid performance in a premium soft-touch design, but its screen isn't good enough for the price.


  • While its specifications look great on paper, this Inspiron is marred by mediocre performance and an unfortunate as-tested price.


  • Go for this 15.6-inch notebook only if you don’t want a number pad, and will be using it mostly on a desk with a mouse attached.


  • The HP Pavilion 10z may be a very basic, budget laptop, but it's a Windows 8.1-equipped system with touch capability, selling for around the same price as a Chromebook.


  • The Toshiba Satellite C55D-B5244 is an average budget desktop-replacement laptop. It's sufficient for basic computing needs, though you may be left expecting more.


  • Toshiba's Satellite P50T-BST2N01 desktop-replacement laptop impresses immediately, thanks to a 4K display with 3,840-by-2,160 resolution, but it's best suited to enthusiasts and professionals who simply must have Ultra HD.


  • The Acer TravelMate TMP645-MG-9419 is an excellent high-performance business ultrabook that emphasizes raw power over mass appeal.


  • Acer’s new TravelMate does many things right. The chassis is well built and functional, the hardware is extremely quick, the battery seemingly lasts forever and the MSRP is reasonable. All of these factors should add up to the best business Ultrabook available today. There’s just one problem; the keyboard. Its quality pales even when compared to consumer notebooks, and the back-light is so poorly implemented that it borders on useless. Fumbling the keyboard would normally be a minor issue, but it’s a notable oversight for a professional notebook, and one that some buyers won’t be able to forgive.
