Notebookcheck's Top 10 Budget Gaming Laptops

Florian Glaser (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 01/25/2018

Update March 2018. The following article contains a list of the best budget gaming notebooks reviewed by us. This overview will allow you to find the right notebook that fits your budget and requirements quickly and easily.

The following top 10 list of budget gaming notebooks contains the best notebooks reviewed by Notebookcheck that meet two criteria. First of all, given that this is a list of budget gaming notebooks the price shall not exceed 1500 Euros (~$1866; keep in mind that these are live prices, and that they are subject to change on a daily basis). And second, the laptop has to be equipped with at least an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU. This entry-level GPU is what most games released in the last two years seem to require to run smoothly at around 30 FPS in FHD resolution (1920x1080) and a high level of details. Some of the notebooks at the top of the price bracket contain more powerful GPUs, like a GTX 1050 Ti or even GTX 1060. The former is usually capable of running the same games smoothly at more than 45 FPS in FHD and high quality. Other Notebookcheck top 10 lists for gaming notebooks:

The following table lists the best budget Windows-based gaming-capable notebooks reviewed by us in the last 12 months. In case of identical ratings we list the newer model first. The table can be sorted and rearranged by clicking on the headers, and can be filtered by using the input box above the table (e.g. “matte”).

1st - Acer Aspire V17 Nitro BE VN7-793G

Attractive and powerful: Acer Aspire V17 Nitro BE VN7-793G
Attractive and powerful: Acer Aspire V17 Nitro BE VN7-793G

The Aspire V17 Nitro BE VN7-793G offers a decent overall package. Powerful thanks to its GTX 1060 GPU, affordable due to the i5-7300HQ quad-core CPU, and gimmicky thanks to the included TobiiEye tracking feature.

With the introduction of its Nitro series, a few years back, Acer has considerably changed the multimedia notebook landscape by offering decent displays combined with powerful gaming-capable hardware installed in a discreetly designed case for a more than reasonable price. Even today, Acer’s Nitro series is a staple in every best-bang-for-your-buck comparison. The VN7-793G-52XN deserves first place on this list thanks to its powerful combination of a GTX 1060 graphics card, an i5-7300HQ processor, and an ergonomic matte FHD display with high brightness and very high contrast ratio. The included eye tracking module is a nice gimmick for casual games. Further pros: low noise emissions even under load, wide variety of ports, and decent battery life despite its powerful hardware.

2nd - HP Omen 15

Gaming for all: HP Omen 15
Gaming for all: HP Omen 15

The Omen 15 started what can only be described as a price war for the most affordable yet most powerful gaming notebook, and the 2nd edition is still at the forefront of this battle.

“Gaming by HP” - an all too familiar slogan today, but a mere few years ago it would have been unthinkable. HP joined the upbeat gaming hardware market around three years ago by introducing their first gaming notebooks. The Omen 15, based around Nvidia’s GTX-10-series of GPUs, was HP’s big breakthrough: aggressively priced high performance manufactured into a fairly compact case. The HP Omen 15 had much to offer: 120 Hz display, decent audio performance, and a wide variety of ports to name a few. An important detail for our review unit at hand: it features a GTX 1060 Max-Q graphics card: a GTX 1060 variant optimized for low power consumption and consequently low heat emissions. Overall performance can thus not keep up with a regular GTX 1060; see our extensive review for more details.

3rd - Asus ROG Strix GL753VE

All-rounder: Asus GL753VE-DS74
All-rounder: Asus GL753VE-DS74

Equipped with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, the Asus GL753 is aimed at users looking for above average gaming performance. In addition, it features a very decent FHD display.

With its G-series of notebooks, Asus is one of the gaming notebook pioneers. The G1s and G2p were two of the first gaming notebooks introduced more than ten years ago, when the gaming notebook market was just about to take off. For the better part of these past 10 years, Asus’s premise has been to squeeze increasingly better performing hardware into notebook cases, while doing whatever humanly possible to keep the emissions in check. The first G75x models were particularly commendable in this respect. Today, Asus has a multitude of models on offer, meeting the various needs of all gamers alike. For example, the GL753 is aimed at users looking for a well-balanced total package of performance, emissions, and price without excelling at either one of those categories at the expense of the other two. The display did fairly well in our review.

4th - Acer Aspire VX5-591G (VX15)

Acer Aspire VX15: powerful and quiet
Acer Aspire VX15: powerful and quiet

A well-rounded multimedia and gaming laptop, the VX15 should definitely be upgraded with an SSD to improve upon everyday application performance.

With Acer’s Predator series playing in the major league of gaming notebooks, the Aspire series offers a more balanced price-performance ratio. Gaming performance is respectable thanks to its GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU, and the Aspire VX15 can run most games in FHD on high details smoothly. In addition to its low price its overall fairly low noise emissions even while gaming is also worth mentioning, particularly when compared with more powerful and expensive gaming notebooks.

5th - Schenker Technologies XMG P407

14-inch: Schenker Technologies XMG P407 (Clevo P641HK1)
14-inch: Schenker Technologies XMG P407 (Clevo P641HK1)

15 and 17-inch notebooks are still dominating the gaming notebook landscape. However, smaller models are available as well, and this 14-inch contender is particularly noteworthy.

In our review, the P407 did very well overall. Matte IPS display with decent contrast ratio, adequate input devices, NVMe SSD, and powered by an Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU. The P407’s comprehensive configuration options are particularly noteworthy: many aspects can be configured to your individual liking. The understated black case without any light and color shenanigans will certainly find its fans among the community of gamers.

6th - Acer Aspire 7 A715

Only slightly more than 1000 Euros: Acer Aspire 7 A715
Only slightly more than 1000 Euros: Acer Aspire 7 A715

If you want to spend less than 1000 Euros (~$1244), the Aspire 7 might be just the right notebook for you. Equipped with an Intel quad-core CPU and a GTX 1050 GPU it is capable of running most current games smoothly in FHD.

The time-honored Aspire series can be found right behind the Predator and Nitro series in Acer’s current line-up. These notebooks are equipped with powerful hardware and are thus one of the best ways to get high performance at a low price. The Aspire 7 A715-71G-53TU reviewed by us combines an Intel i5-7300HQ CPU (45 W quad-core) with a GeForce GTX 1050, a small 128 GB SSD, and a large conventional hard drive. And while the device lacks USB 3.1 Type-C, the total package is quite decent overall.

7th - Asus ROG Strix GL503VD

Asus GL503VD: multimedia notebook with gaming ambitions
Asus GL503VD: multimedia notebook with gaming ambitions

Plenty of performance at an affordable price point - the Asus GL503VD is a 15-inch multimedia-notebook in disguise.

The GL503VD-DB74 is immediately recognizable as a gaming notebook, and it offers adequate gaming performance at a reasonable price point of less than 1000 Euros (~$1244). In our review, we found most games to run smoothly in FHD resolution and high details, and we were particularly fond of the bright display with its matte surface. Other pros worth noting: RAM, SSD, and HDD are accessible via the maintenance flap and can be easily replaced and/or upgraded.

All you can ask for: Medion Erazer X6603

The Erazer X6603’s approach is to take a sledgehammer to crack a nut: Intel i7 quad-core CPU, GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU, SSD and HDD, and 16 GB of RAM leave nothing to be desired.

But it is not only its internal hardware that is worth mentioning. In our review, the Medion Erazer X6603 impressed us with low surface temperatures and low noise emissions. Port distribution and input devices were more than decent, and most games ran smoothly at very high details, thanks to its GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card.

9th - Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC

AMD Power: Asus GL702ZC
AMD Power: Asus GL702ZC

While most gaming notebooks are equipped with a combination of Intel CPU and Nvidia GPU, the Asus GL702ZC is equipped with hardware from AMD.

After we already reviewed a version with Ryzen 7 1700 (octa-core) a few months ago, we had the chance to test the GL702ZC with the less expensive Ryzen 5 1600 (hexa-core). The 17-inch system is only equipped with 8 GB RAM and comes without an SSD, but we still liked the overall package. Thanks to the DirectX 12 GPU Radeon RX 580, the test system is one of the most powerful gaming laptops for less than 1500 Euros.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7577: long-lasting gamer

Atypical for a gaming notebook, the Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming offers a rather long battery life and a very high and stable build quality.

On the inside, Dell has opted for a GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q GPU due to which surface temperatures and noise emissions while gaming are kept down. The Inspiron 15 7577 also offers two storage bays (M.2 NVMe and 2.5-inch SATA), an FHD IPS display, and a Thunderbolt 3 port.
