Gaming laptop, opinions about the few options it's narrowed down to? 800$ or below budget.


Apr 2, 2016
So I had a cheap refurbished lenovo laptop before, designed for the office and not gaming, and it broke finally, so I'm really looking to get something better for gaming. I decided to go with a laptop due to travel, not really open for any PC suggestions. The style of games I usually play are Rpgs and open world games, like skyrim, this war is mine, transistor, etc. My old computer was touchscreen too, which I didn't think I'd like but I became very accustomed to it.

Some of the points I've had when looking are-
It has to be 800$ or below
Really shooting for another touchscreen, but if it really comes to it, I'll sacrifice it.
It's 15"6 in or bigger
Isn't a burden to travel with.

I'm really sticking to the 15"6 more than "15"6 in or bigger." since it's an ideal size to travel with.

These are the few laptops I'm looking at right now, and I was hoping to get some input on them for gaming, which is better for what, etc. Any suggestions for what would be more important in a computer for the type of games I play will be gladly received too!

2. HP Pavilion 15t 15.6-Inch Touchscreen Laptop (6th Gen Intel Core i5-6200u Processor, 8GB DDR3L RAM, 1TB HDD, Windows 10)

This is my first gaming laptop, so I'm not incredibly up to date on what you need, but I've been looking around.

CPU(s) ending with the letter "U" are said to consume less power, this means that they are weak & not enough for intense gaming.
Also the Intel HD 520 is not that good for gaming either. But you could still play some of your games from low~to~medium.

So by excluding the weaks, you remain with N°6: that seems to be the best option you have.

But if you can add a little more ($35) you can get another DELL with a better CPU:
