This Dell G3 15 budget gaming laptop is based on the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU and features a 10th-gen Core i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB solid-state drive. The 15.6-inch display features a full HD resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. You won’t be able to run the latest AAA titles at full tilt, but it can play less demanding games such as Fortnite and CS:GO at full HD resolution and 60 frames per second.

Newegg

This Gigabyte is the lowest-cost laptop I’ve seen with Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series graphics, and that’s before you factor in its current $50 discount. It features the RTX 3060 GPU along with a 10th-gen Core i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 15.6-inch screen has full HD resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate.

MSI

This 15.6-inch MSI gaming laptop supplies an FHD, 144Hz display powered by a 10th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and GeForce RTX 2060 graphics. The RTX 2060 is the budget card in Nvidia’s previous RTX 2000-series lineup and offers excellent value. It can do ray tracing, which reproduces how light behaves in the real world to give games a more photorealistic look.

IMHO, this is the best-looking gaming laptop on the market. Impossibly thin for a high-powered gaming laptop with a sleek, slab look, this 15.6-inch Razer Blade machine also boasts a powerful, smart component lineup. This 2020 model is on sale and pairs a 10th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU with Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics and supplies an ample 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 15.6-inch screen has full HD resolution and a lightning-fast 144Hz refresh rate.

This new Alienware m15 R4 monster features the GeForce RTX 3070 GPU from Nvidia’s latest lineup along with a 10th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 15.6-inch display features a full HD resolution and a screaming-fast 300Hz refresh rate.

This model from Asus delivers previous-generation GeForce RTX 2070 Super graphics and a previous-generation Core i7 CPU, but both should be plenty powerful when combined with 16GB of RAM. This laptop boasts a fast 240Hz, 15.6-inch display and tons of storage with a 1TB SSD.
