Why a gaming laptop is worth your money

In the past, most people would steer clear of gaming laptops. They were drastically expensive in comparison to their desktop counterparts, and unless you seriously needed to 'game on the go', they weren't worth the money. However, in recent years the world of gaming laptops has exploded. They are now actually worth the money, if you know what you are buying. On this page, we are going to look at why a good gaming laptop is worth your money.


Obviously, the main reason why a gaming laptop is worth your money is simply because it is portable. Carry your laptop anywhere, and you can 'game on the go'. Fantastic if you want to keep up with your daily quests in your favourite MMO.

Not only that but if you are using your laptop for other purposes than gaming, it would be good to have these documents present if you are away on a work trip. In fact, using it both for work and gaming is a great option which laptops such as the Razer Blade series can achieve.

Also, wouldn’t it be fun to be able to game when overseas on a work trip or holiday trip? You can even show your gaming skills off to your friends.


This ties into the portability mentioned earlier. When you own a gaming laptop, you have full control over where you use it. If you have a desktop computer, you are only ever going to be able to use it in the comfort of your own home. With a laptop, you can use it out there on the road, but if you are at home then you can connect it up to your favourite keyboard, mouse, and monitor combo and use it like this. It will function just like any old desktop computer, albeit a bit smaller.

Being gaming on the go also adds another dimension in your gameplay; now you can game together with your friends, than within the confines of your house. This makes attending gaming events or tournaments much easier, and you can even do some quick work while you’re not gaming.

Better specifications than standard laptops

Obviously, gaming laptops are built for gaming. This means that they will use quality, brand name components in them. Many of the top gaming laptops nowadays will come back with the same graphics cards that you will find in desktop computers. If you are planning to game a lot, then a laptop that is built for that is the only route to go down. More recent gaming laptops will have you running the newest games for years and years.

Remember; the better specifications will also ensure that your gaming laptop runs a lot faster than your standard laptop. It makes browsing the Internet easier, and now you can open multiple tabs while working without having your computer slow down. Having a gaming laptop also makes running applications on your computer easier, especially if you are a coder or you need to run resource-intensive programs. You would also have a lot more storage space for your photographs, videos, and documents too.

Product Life

Do bear in mind that gaming laptops tend to last a little bit longer than normal laptops too. This is because of the components that they are made from. These are brand name components, and they are built to last. So, even if you are not planning to game, you could save money by picking up a gaming laptop. After all, surely it is better to have a laptop that lasts almost a decade in comparison to one that may give you a couple of years use at the most?

Better screens

Standard laptops tend not to have full HD screens. They come close, but not quite. The screens on gaming laptops are so much better. If you are willing to drop a healthy chunk of change, then you may find some gaming laptops boasting 4k screens. This is fantastic if you watch a lot of videos, movies and TV shows online. Everything is just going to look better visually. While people are spending a lot of money getting the perfect TV screen for their home, you can do the same for a portable screen.

When it comes to why a gaming laptop is worth your money, it is all dependent on your needs. As we have shown, they function better for games, they are portable, they boast fantastic specifications, and their designs look great. For instance, the Razer Blade series boasts of a sleek design that not only impresses as a gaming laptop, but also visually when people notice you are using one. If any of these pointers sound great to you, then it may be worth researching the various gaming laptops on the market to find one that is right for you.
