However, skills and knowledge about looping the jungle gym are not enough as you would need more than that to assist you in escaping the shreds of Demogorgon.

This is why a beast of a laptop that doesn’t give in to an entity’s vile ways is highly recommended that doesn’t stutter your frames in a cold wind farm and you can present an equally yet direct challenge to the upcoming killer, The Pinhead.

Moreover, on the darker side, being in the first person requires a different sort of skill with killer instincts that outclasses the dead hard and sprint bursts of a pesky t-bagging meg.

That being said a fast processing laptop with an even faster refresh rate is required so that you wouldn’t miss your hatchets while throwing at an overconfident David that is 360-ing you or “Cj-Tech” you over those annoying pallets at every corner of the Hawkins Laboratory.

Let’s not spoil the game for you and get to the technical aspect, which is why I have come up with a whole chunk of lists of laptops that would benefit you in piping your rank and winning some games.

After all, these are the things that matter a lot, such as a graphic card to emulate the beautiful colors of the most hated map Raccoon city, or sufficient RAM to ensure you don’t stutter while dead Harding when injured, a faster refresh rate to hit those 360 spear shots across the corn and last but not the least a faster and bigger SSD to house all the level 3 madness of an electrocuting doctor.

The third pick in the list is the mighty Lenovo Legion 5, which has state-of-the-art hardware specifications thanks to the AMD Ryzen technology as well as the newest 30 series graphics card, making this laptop an allrounder in the gaming category.

I played plenty of games on this laptop and even on the most conservative and battery-saving options I only got battery power somewhere around 5 hours which is above average battery life for such power-hungry specifications.

But worry not as the laptop has a huge storage capacity of 512GB SSD Nvme PCIe which has tremendously fast transfer rates ensuring minimal boot times.

The keyboard backlighting has only one zone Illumination, and this limits the creativity of a gamer to only color, Blue. However, in terms of typing and gaming experience, the keyboard of laptop is a beast and comes with a dedicated Armoury crate button that displays the performance of your connected hardware which is a neat feature.

My favorite part about this laptop is how updated it feels to use it. The laptop comes with WI-FI 6 support, Thunderbolt 4 type C interface, and Triple Type A to connect your gaming peripherals.

The laptop delivers great battery life on light web surfing, however, in heavy gaming, the runtime ranges from 7-8 hours which is phenomenal.

5. Razer Blade 15 Base (High-End Gaming Laptop For Dead By Daylight)

A little bit expensive for being a gaming laptop, the razer blade 15 has style points on fleek. Nonetheless, it has competent hardware specifications but comes with a few caveats like shorter battery life.

This is the 6th contender in the list, but I have a habit of saving the best for last, just like Michaels’s perk. The laptop has plenty of features like impeccable hardware, sleek glossy body, and Ryzen technology making it an all-rounder in the list.

However, the caveat to all the glitters of the laptop lies in the screen, as the laptop only has a 60hz refresh rate screen and you would see screen tearing in the 15.6 inches screen if you don’t turn on it with the VSync option in-game. But be wary of inevitable input lag.

The laptop also has 2 memory slots and comes with a base 8GB DDR4 ram which might not be enough for today’s gaming standard but doesn’t expect multitasking and gaming with such low RAM specifications. 

I played the latest DLC of Resident Evil and saw some frame drops in the Raccoon city map, however that may be the game being un-optimized as always. The graphics aspect is handled by the Nvidia Geforce Gtx 1650 that has a 128-bit memory interface and has 4GB GDDR5 VRAM.

There is only one color as the keys’ backlighting – green – although there are three modes available, Off, Medium, and High, which you can choose according to your mood.

The left flank has 1 x USB Type A, an Ethernet port for wired gaming as well as USB Type C.

And on the right end, crucial ports like USB Type-A 3.1, a power charger, and an SD card slot is present.

The laptop has above average battery life and doesn’t expect miracles while playing high-end games, the laptop only managed to deliver 2 hours of disappointing gaming sessions. Although on light surfing it had a battery life of 5 hours.

7. Lenovo – IdeaPad L340 15 Gaming Laptop – INVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 – Black

A first glance at the Ideapad will be captivated by its beautiful and visually immersive 15.6-inch screen size, which delivers unerring colors and has exceptional image quality. Although the bezels aren’t as thin as other rivals on the list, they might bother you.

The Dedicated 4GB GDDR5 Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 Graphics card handles the open-world game pretty well although you have to play the game at medium to high settings if you want to enjoy it at steady frames.

The laptop comes with a Coffee Intel Core i5-9300HF Processor that has a base clock speed of 2.4Ghz and can be pushed to its limits up to 4.1Ghz.

While some users might find the 8GB DDR4 insufficient, the higher memory requirements of newer gaming titles may necessitate upgrading sooner than later to fully gain and enjoy the benefit of heavy games. However, the laptop does come with a blinding fast Flash memory of 256GB PCIe Nvme storage state drive, which is a big plus.

It is Lenovo’s pride to make gamer-focused keyboards, and this laptop is no different since it has a sea blue-backlit keyboard to soothe your eyes while you play games or watch movies in dimly lit rooms which can also be adjusted accordingly to save battery life.

However, the left end does have some USB hubs like Type C ports which might not be as speedy as the superset Thunderbolt 3 but still do the job considerably well. As well as 2 USB Type-A ports and an HDMI 2.0 jack for media projecting.

To my surprise, I was let down by this beauty as the battery results were below my expectations, and saw the laptop give up on me during my pleasurable gaming hours of roughly around 3 hours.
