  • Hello Ashutosh,

    Great selection of gaming laptops under $800.

    The Dell Inspiron i7559, and Asus K501UW are two of our favorite gaming rigs for this price tier.

    By far, the graphics card is one of the most important aspects of a gaming spec laptop. So, it’s no coincidence that your top 3 choices all sport the GTX 960M card, which is an upper mid-range card from NVIDIA.

    Compared to the 860M it replaces, it clocks at a slightly higher speed to deliver better performance. Which is just what you want for a gaming laptop. And just goes to show what’s available at this price point for those of us who are yet to be able to afford sub-$2000 gaming units.

    Keep up the good work. We can’t wait to read more of your reviews.

      Hello Gigabyte Kingdom,
      Thanks for appreciating the review. When it comes to techs and especially gaming laptops, the more you spend the better you get but unfortunately not everyone can afford high range laptops. We have done our best to choose best among the best. 🙂
