  1. Display Size

Display Size matters a lot while selecting a gaming laptop. Generally, a screen size of 15.6 inches can be a good choice as with this range of screen size you can easily carry a laptop from one place to another. But if the only purpose that you want to a laptop for is gaming, then we recommend you to go with 17.3 inches of screen size. Bigger the screen size, better will be the gaming and lesser will be the portability. Choice is yours

  1. Keyboard

A keyboard in that one thing that every gamer should look after before purchasing a laptop or PC for gaming purposes. There are different types of keyboards available in the market and the one which is most common for gaming purposes is the Mechanical Keyboard.

RAM handles all the time allotment system of your CPU. When a CPU allot time to a particular application, it’s the duty of RAM to get it completed within that particular time frame. RAM is another crucial element that you should consider before buying a gaming laptop. For an average gaming laptop, we recommend having an 8GB of RAM whereas for a high-end gaming laptop 16GB of RAM is a must.

  1. SSD or HDD

HDD stands for Hard Disk Drive whereas SSD stands for Solid State Drive. SSD’s are much faster than the HDD’s and thus a laptop with SSD tends to have faster speed and response than a laptop with HDD. We recommend you to go with a laptop which has SSD preconfigured or has HDD with 7200 rpm speed.
