Best Apple Laptops for Gaming

Best Apple Laptops for Gaming – If you want a bit more endurance and better performance over longer periods, get the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1. It lasts for a remarkable 16 hours and 32 minutes on a charge and scored benchmark numbers that blow away the competition.

It’s not so easy for us to recommend Apple’s other options. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with four Thunderbolt 3 ports and the 16-inch MacBook Pro are stuck with Intel chips that are less powerful than M1 and don’t support iOS and iPadOS apps. Apple is expected to release new versions with Apple Silicon in the coming weeks, so we suggest you try holding out until then.


1.Apple MacBook Air

Pros & Cons

Coming into this review, I had a catalog of potential pitfalls that Apple could have fallen into when switching from an Intel chip to its own processor. Chip transitions are devilishly hard and don’t usually go smoothly. This MacBook Air not only avoids almost all of those pitfalls, but it gleefully leaps over them.

Not everything is perfect, of course. Apple’s insistence on using dumpy webcams continues to be a bummer, and running iPad apps is a mess. But as I used the MacBook Air, I often found myself so impressed that I had a hard time believing it.

2.Dell XPS 13

Pros & Cons

If you were tempted to buy an XPS 13 earlier this year following its significant redesign (model 9300) but didn’t pull the trigger, it’s a good thing you waited. Now you can get everything we like about the new laptop with the added bonus of the latest Intel silicon.

The CPU bump is essentially the only change from the 9300 to the current model 9310, but it’s an important one if you plan to keep your machine for five years or more. Dell does churn out new XPS 13 models at a prodigious rate, sometimes multiple times per year. Still, a brand-new processor and a physical redesign that’s not even a year old make the 9310 a safe buy for people who don’t want their expensive investment to be upstaged by something vastly better in a few months.

3.Lenovo Yoga 7i

Pros & Cons

When shopping for a laptop that is capable of doing everything you need it to, you’re going to be stuck between paying a large amount of money or sacrificing some things in the name of affordability. However, with the Lenovo Yoga 7i (14-inch), there’s a solid middle-ground between a premium device at an affordable price.

The Yoga 7i offers stellar performance, a long battery life, solid speakers and a colorful 14-inch display packed into a premium chassis, all for just. However, even a laptop as great as this comes with some caveats. The panel is a little dim, there are not many ports, and the keyboard and touchpad experience is mediocre.

4.HP 14″ Laptop

Pros & Cons

Though some online listings say the 14-dq2020nr has a dual-core Intel Core i3-1115G4, our test unit actually clicks that up to a quad-core, 2.0GHz (3.7GHz turbo) Core i3-1125G4 processor with Intel integrated UHD Graphics. The 14-inch, non-touch screen offers full HD (1,920-by-1,080-pixel) resolution.

The default operating system is Windows 10 Home in S Mode, which restricts software installations to programs from the Windows Store; a few clicks in the Store perform an irreversible switch to regular Windows 10 Home, which we made in order to install our benchmark test software.

5.ASUS TUF Gaming A15

Pros & Cons

With the Asus TUF Gaming F15, we were already able to test an almost identically equipped version of our test device with an Intel CPU. Now we have the AMD version with a Ryzen 7 5800H in the form of the Asus TUF Gaming A15, which is supported by 16 GB of RAM. An Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 is responsible for displaying image content, and a 1 TB SSD is also available.

This configuration is offered at a price of approximately 1,700 Euros (~$2,008), meaning that the TUF Gaming A15 has to face the comparison with the competition listed below. You can also add more laptops from our database for comparison under each section.


Best Apple Laptops for Gaming – We now recommend every MacBook in Apple’s arsenal, however, major differences between each model mean there isn’t a one-size-fits-all option. At the end of last year, Apple released a new MacBook Air and entry-level MacBook Pro with a custom ARM-based M1 chip, the company’s first in-house SoC (processor/graphics combo).

The processor brought massive performance and battery life improvements to Apple’s least expensive laptops, pushing them ahead of their pricier MacBook Pro comrades and even some top Windows 10 rivals.
