good laptop for gaming/game development

26 minutes ago, yeetyeetyeeter said:

price point is 800-950

doesnt have to be the best obviously

but id like the best i can get for the money

im gonna do game development for school and need a new laptop

 

Assuming you mean dollars/euros/GBP:

 

Acer Nitro 5 with 4600H

Dell G5 SE with 4600H and 5600M (runs hot with bad response times)

Asus A15 with 4600H (runs hot with bad response times and generally poor display)

HP Omen 15 if they release lower end tiers

Lenovo Legion 5

 

You probably want to look for a Ryzen 5 4600H and a 1650ti at this price point. Could maybe squeeze a 1660ti or 5600M. 

 

All these suggestions are a bit bulky. If you want something more portable, Asus G14 Base spec, but it's more expensive for the same performance.

 

For this price range, I would strongly recommend checking out Jarrod's Tech on YouTube. He has done extensive coverage of a number of these models. Notebookcheck is also good for written reviews. 

 

From Intel, the Acer Helios may be worth consideration, or last year's legion Y540, but these options are more expensive.

 

Hope this helps :)
