Budget gaming laptops don't have to cost $1000. With Computex 2019 right around the corner, retailers are now offering heavy discounts on last generation SKUs to make room for newer models. The best part is that these older processors are still able to offer nearly the same performance as the latest generation hardware.

Now is a good time to buy a gaming laptop if you are gaming on a budget. The latest 9th generation of Intel CPUs in particular don't offer that much of a performance boost over the now cheaper 8th generation series. Thus, gaming laptops of yesteryear can be found at bottom-of-the-barrel prices and still have almost the same processing horsepower as the latest models.

As of this writing, Best Buy is currently offering the 15.6-inch Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop for $630 down from its original retail price of $800. The system packs a respectable Core i5-8300H CPU and GTX 1050 Ti GPU which will be about 15 to 20 percent slower than the latest laptops equipped with the newer and pricier Core i5-9300H and GTX 1650, respectively, when gaming. For nearly half the price, however, we think the target audience will appreciate the significantly better performance-per-dollar surrounding the sale.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
