Top Ten Gaming Laptop Computers

Updated on October 27, 2013
Source

I’d like to get my son a gaming laptop. Being that I don’t know a thing about them, I did an online search and found PCMAG.com. They had exactly what I was looking for, a write up comparison on the best of the best, top 10 gaming laptops. I’ve added the link below; it’s very informative.

Whenever I buy online, I have to admit; I go to Amazon.com first to see if they have what I’m looking for, and they usually do. I’ve shopped with them for years, and I’ve always been very happy with my purchases. So, I checked to see if they had any of the gaming laptops that were showcased on PCMAG.com, and they did.

Amazon had the Alienware, Samsung, MSI GT70, Dell XP15 and (New) Razor Blade gaming laptops. I compared the suggested price on PCMAG.com to Amazon prices, I added them on the list below.

I feel good about the information I found online at PCMAG.com. I now have something to go by. And when I do get ready to make the purchase, I like that I can shop at Amazon.com.

I found another website that reviews the best gaming laptops; The Verge, It has a lot of information. I've added the link below.

The Samsung 7 and the Alienware M17x were both top picks on The Verge website; along with the Lenovo Ideapad Y580 (This laptop didn’t make the top 10 on PCMAG.com)

Personal Picks

My son just went to PCMAG.com, and The Verge websites to compare gaming laptops. I asked him to look objectively and tell me which laptop, based on the information given, would he buy for himself, and why. Going by the “Wrap Up” graphs on The Verge website, my son chose the Alienware M17XR4. If you go to the link provided for The Verge, scroll down to the “Wrap Up” area, and you can see the comparison graphs for yourself. There were three laptops that stood out for me: Alienware, the Samsung Series 7, and the MSI GT70. I based my picks on the fact that all three only had one #5 (Yellow bar) in their graphs, and everything else was higher than #5. All three of these computers are at Amazon.com.

Responsible Gaming

My son has been a gamer for many years. He's made a lot of friendships; both male and female. He's played online with all different personalities, ages, backgrounds and beliefs, but they all had one thing in common, they were teammates.

When I saw my son working at his place of employment, I couldn’t help but notice that he had very good people skills. He could talk to anyone; it didn’t matter if they were male or female, young or not so young, he felt comfortable talking with everyone. I attribute that, in part, to his experience with online gaming.

I told my son that I felt he’s gotten a lot of good experience with people, through the years, by being a gamer, he agreed, and added that he has also gained the skill of being able to be both a leader, and a follower.

I think that’s pretty responsible gaming.

      Thought this was a top 10 list?

      Thank you! I would have never caught that myself, and I'm not kidding. I appreciate you for pointing out my blunder.
