This entry-level gaming laptop won't let you play AAA titles without dialing back the settings, but it's got more than enough muscle to power eSports titles such as CS:GO and League of Legends at the 15.6-inch display's native 1,920x1,080 resolution. It features an AMD Ryzen 5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics. Getting any sort of dedicated graphics in a $600 laptop is a great deal.

IMHO, this is the sleekest, best-looking gaming laptop on the market. Impossibly thin for a gaming laptop, this 15.6-inch slab of a laptop also boasts a powerful, smart component lineup. It pairs the ninth-gen Intel Core i7-9750H CPU with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. It also features an ample 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. It lists for $2,000, and the lowest its price had gone was $1,900 -- before dropping recently to $1,800 at both Amazon and Best Buy.
