    I think dell xps 15 shouldn’t be in the list ….dell 17r turbo is much better…and what do u think about alienware 14x…84k is the price in india, is it worth the money?

    For those who are not sure for dell xps 15, I personally own xps l501x from april 2011 and played lot of hard core games like BF3, COD BO2, COD ghost, Prototype 2, NFS Rivals, NFS the run, this much should be enough to clear all your doubts. Dell xps 15 is very decent gaming laptop. I can even show gameplay of these games.

    A lot of people are complaining about alienware performance, to be honest it’s the Ferrari of gaming computers, it’s overpriced but you get the performance, you get the attention wherever you use it. And like most people, they can’t afford a Ferrari so they just complain but deep inside they are simply craving to have one. Get the picture? The only downside of this computer is its heavy! But it’s worth every penny if you can afford one 😉

    Even though Alienware is best gaming laptop nobody wants to use it, I spend my most of day at gaming cafes and I don’t see many guys using it… and not just Alienware but also MSI, I don’t know why but gamers these days are using cheap laptops from Dell, ASUS, etc. Do you think reason behind this might be the price of gaming laptops? Or cheap laptops with good processor can handle latest games?

    Hey Preetam, really cool list of laptops but i have a condition. I need a i7 3d gen laptop for gaming which has at least 2.5 or 2.3 GHz processing speed with good graphics card and RAM and also with windows 8 OS in which games like Crysis 3 ,Max Payne 3 can work without lagging and which is under the range of 60,000 to 80,000 rupees! Please recommend a good laptop according to the above requirements other than Sony VAIO. Waiting for your quick reply, thanks.

    To people who do not agree with this list,
    Just go and buy a cheap laptop for yourself as you guys clearly have no idea what gaming laptops actually are. This one surely is the most accurate list of gaming notebooks I have found on internet. And to the above guys who say MSI or Origin beats Alienware, you guys are clearly out of your mind or maybe you people just cannot afford to buy Alienware laptop or you guys wouldn’t be talking like this about it. Anyways, here is a little advice to newbie gamers out there from a professional gamer, if you have enough money to invest on gaming laptop then do not think about anything else other than Alienware M17X. It’s the best.

    Okay first of all I’d like to say that this post needs to be revised, I have been a gamer for more than 15 years and have tried plenty of gaming laptops that are claimed to be the best ones in this post. I am not saying that Alienware laptops are bad, but there certainly are better options like MSI GT70 and Origin EON 17, seriously I am surprised to see them on such a low spot in this list.. anyways, are you really serious about Dell XPS 15? Trust me, Dell is the worst laptop brand and doesn’t matter whether you are buying a laptop for gaming or even for your basic tasks. Never go for Dell, especially for gaming, their keyboards are worst, touchpads are totally dull, now I don’t even want to get started with it because I just won’t stop then.. good luck with promoting your so-called best gaming laptops..

    I think you should look at Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, the price is quite cheap and it still has SLI GT650 graphics card.. I have been using it for about two months now and it certainly is a great gaming laptop for its price..

  9. 15


    Alienware has been the best for a while now and I am starting to think that soon it will be replaced by Origin, even though I personally use Alienware I won’t recommend it to any hardcore gamer.. I’d say go for Origin since it is one of the best gaming laptops out there..

  10. 14


    If I were to buy a Windows gaming laptop then I would not think about anything other than MSI GT 70 because I think that is the only brand who manufactures their own hardware specs and others simply outsource their parts from Intel or other hardware manufacturers.. and another reason to choose MSI is solely because of their customer service which is totally awesome.. anyways, Alienware laptop is over-rated as usual so I am not surprised..

  11. 13


    Surprised to see that Origin made it so low on the list. I am guessing that you haven’t owned one. I have owned both alienware and origin and my origins have been markedly better in hardware availability, customization, and customer service. About to order my 3rd Origin gaming laptop, in every case I was able to get better hardware from Origin.

  12. 12


    which place do you think msi gx60 would have come on?

  13. 11


    @ Sameer, if you are solely looking for laptop to play games on it then I’d say Lenovo is really bad choice and the price you’ve stated is high too.. Anyways, specs you’ve described look great but for gaming I always recommend Alienware m17x..

  14. 10


    Lenovo ideapad Y500

    I’m thinking of buying this model having following specs
    (3rd Gen Ci7 3632QM/ 8GB RAM/ 1TB HDD/ Win8/ 2GB GT 650M single Graphics Card)

    This is the only specification available in India.

    I like that it has a 1080p screen. But I’ve read it doesnt have nvidia optimus. How much difference does that make to the battery life?
    Also is the pricing for it too high in India (Rs. 67000)?

    Also recommend few laptops in that range.

    Alienware M14X $999 – $1500
    Also after owning a 17″ for the last 8+ years the 17″ laptop is not very portable, especially if are using it on airplane. 🙂

    @ Katherine
    if you have a good budget then don’t even think about any other than Alienware, it’s the best brand when it comes to gaming laptops.

    Exactly what I was looking for, thanks Preetam, perfect list of gaming laptops, have learned a lot about them but still confused between 3 laptops. Can you suggest one from Alienware M17x, Dell 15 XPS and Samsung series 7 gamer?

  18. 6


    Hi Tanya, thanks for your comment and yeah there are many top laptop brands these days that are manufacturing best laptops for gaming and about Alienware, they have always been the best when it comes to gaming. Anyways, good luck with purchasing your laptop and if I were you I’d go with some Sony VAIO laptop since they can be affordable.

  19. 5


    eww, I had no idea that there were so many great laptops for gaming, so far I have only heard about Alienware notebooks.. anyways, these all seem to be out of my budget and I guess I’ll simply have to take a look at little bit less costly laptops..

  20. 4


    Hi Tango, I think you can get Samsung Series 7 Gamer for around that price which can definitely be a top class laptop for gaming or you can also check out few new laptops of Sony VAIO series since those can be extremely good for decent gaming.

  21. 3


    Checked price of all them and they all seem really expensive, I am looking for a laptop that doesn’t costs more than $1000 for gaming, so is there any good one that I can afford?

  22. 2


    Thanks for your thoughts Ratez, but I’ll have to disagree with you too because I personally own Dell XPS 15 and I’ve been using it now for more than 5 months and playing enough HD games without any issues. And about the device you’ve seen at your friend might be having some issues with its graphics card or might have caught some virus. Anyways, thanks for your appreciation.

    Nicely compiled list, and I can tell that due to my experience in gaming and also because I am a huge fan of gaming laptops, I personally own 18-inches Alienware laptop and have seen almost all of them at my close friends or at gaming cafes, but only thing I don’t agree with you is, why is Dell XPS 15 in this list? I have seen that laptop at one of my cafe mates and honestly it was too bad for playing high definition games. I think you might want to revise this post and replace it.
