Today we’re having a look at 5 of the most affordable and most powerful Gaming Laptops available today at PB Tech NZ! All models below feature Nvidia ShadowPlay so you can capture or stream gameplay directly from the laptop while you play, without the need for additional hardware.
Kicking things off with this extremely well priced Asus FX553 Gaming Laptop, we find a powerful 7th generation Intel Quad Core i7 paired with an excellent 4GB GTX 1050 Graphics Card and 8GB of DDR4 RAM. This laptop sports a very good looking 15.6” anti-glare screen, aggressive red LED backlit keyboard, dual-band AC wireless, 128GB of fast M.2 SSD plus a 1TB HDD for extra storage making it a superb all-rounder. Weighing in at just a little over 2.5KG it’s ideal for gaming on the go!
Moving up a tier with this beautiful GTX 1060 Gaming Laptop from Gigabyte, we have a larger 17.3” 1080p IPS screen and also an eye-catching RGB backlit keyboard. The Sabre 17 packs a mighty i7-7700HQ Quad Core (3.8GHz turbo) with a 6GB GTX 1060 Graphics Card and 16GB of DDR4 RAM, storage is split between a very quick 512GB M.2 SSD with an additional 1TB HDD for storage. The larger body provides us with additional USB, HDMI and DisplayPort(s) yet still weighs in around 3.1 KG!
Another favourite here at PB Tech is this exceptional 15.6" ROG GL503 GTX 1060 Gaming Laptop from Asus! With its destinctive ROG design and RGB LED backlit keyboard this model combines a very capable 6GB GTX 1060 with the popular i7-7700HQ Quad Core (3.8GHz Turbo) and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. Storage for this specific model is an ultra-fast 512 NVMe SSD with the ability to add additional HDD if needed. Best of all the 15.6” display is capable of 120HZ so games like Overwatch look smoother than ever!
Stepping into the premium range we have this stunning 15.6" Aorus GTX 1070 Gaming Laptop, a fearsome, ultra slim gaming machine. Weighing in around 2.5KG this beast of a laptop combines the high-end intel i7-7820HK Quad Core (3.9GHz Turbo) CPU with an 8GB GTX 1070 Graphics Card and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. The 15.6” Pantone Certified display has a resolution of 3840x2160 for added detail which also features Nvidia G-SYNC technology for an ultra-smooth, tear free, gaming experience. It’s also got a ThunderBolt 3 port so if you’re wanting to add something like an external graphics card box, the Aorus X5v7 is ready to go!
Rounding off our top 5 we have the latest Asus Republic of Gamers Zephyrus GX501 VI Gaming Laptop and it really is something pretty special :) The unique design places the keyboard at the front with the touchpad on the right and it’s a very comfortable layout, you can even turn that touchpad into a numpad if you’re wanting a layout similar to a full sized keyboard. The keyboard features Aura RGB lighting which lets you customise colours and dynamic effects for the entire keyboard, you can also adjust the QWER and WASD clusters separately for the perfect layout. The underside of the Zephyrus even opens up to provide additional cooling for the 8GB GTX 1080 Max Q designed graphics card and intel i7-7700HQ inside!
Amazing laptops indeed! Check out all these and many, many more in our massive PB Tech Gaming Laptop Department today!
