Nvidia wants you to start the new school year with an Asus ROG Zephyrus, Acer Predator, MSI GS65, Razer Blade, or Dell Alienware laptop. Prices range from $600 USD for a GTX 1050 notebook up to $2800 USD for a fully-configured GTX 1080 Max-Q.

With Summer coming to a close for most students in North America, OEMs like to advertise "back-to-school" deals to encourage a fresh start to the new school year. Nvidia is taking a similar approach this year to help students find the best gaming laptop according to their respective budgets.

As detailed on the official page here, the GeForce maker has categorized the most popular GTX-powered laptops by value, ultra-portable, and game-centric features. "Value" options include the Acer Nitro 5 with GTX 1050 graphics while "ultra-portable" and "game-centric" categories include the Asus ROG Zephyrus GX501 and EVGA SC15, respectively. In total, Nvidia has listed 18 different gaming laptops for students in the U.S. to choose from.

Interestingly, the list does not include any Gigabyte Aorus or Lenovo Legion laptops. Students in the market for a new gaming laptop should certainly not limit themselves to the 18 described above.

We recommend checking out our reviews on each of these gaming systems for more information on the advantages and performance differences between models.

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.
