Best gaming laptops

Whether it's for showing off at a LAN or delivering awesome power in a package you can tuck away on a shelf, gaming laptops are a special breed.

Gaming has been the most dedicated domain of the DIY PC desktop builders, constantly upgrading and tweaking to keep maximising power through years of use. But as gamers grow up, they lose the time for tweaking and just want to dive in and play. That means either a shift to consoles or the tidy package that a gaming laptop can bring.

"Budget" isn't really part of the gaming laptop mindset, so our round-up features some of the most expensive laptops you're likely to find on the market today.

If you just want to play a few games now and then, you might be happy with a better-priced general-purpose laptop featuring Intel's latest Haswell processors. But for those who want to maximise their framerates in a well-built package, these are the laptops to explore.

I love my older model Toshiba. Swear by it. It just never fails. True, it is heavy as hell for a laptop, and the battery life is LOL, but the damn thing has taken a serious beating and you'd never know it aside from a few busted plastic bits on the exterior. Plus I love the screen and keyboard. It's been worth every cent I spent on it. If I was in the market for new gaming laptop right now, I'd go with the new Toshiba because even though I so wish they'd improve the battery life and make it a tad lighter, I just don't know if I could do without the better things with these laptops. They're solid machines for some solid gaming.

Base in mind, once you have finished customising and wanting a high powered laptop, the price still comes around $3k - $4k anyway.

Add the 16/32gig ram, higher end processor and graphics card.
