Best Msi Gaming Laptops Under 1500

Best Msi Gaming Laptops Under 1500 – If you need a new gaming laptop and you have between ~$1,000 and $1,500 to spend, the options listed above represent the best choices for the price range. However, if you’re not dead set on getting a gaming laptop and you’re open to building your own desktop computer, you might want to check our high-end gaming PC builds guide (or even our affordable PC builds guide) to consider some more powerful options for PC gaming.

1.MSI GL65

Features



OUR TAKE

The MSI GL65 directly succeeds the GL63 by introducing a brand new narrow bezel design to the 15.6-inch GL6x series. Aside from the new look, it also brings Intel 9th gen Core i7 CPUs and Nvidia Turing GPUs to supplant the 8th gen CPUs and Pascal GPUs of the previous generation model. The mid-range GL65 is designed to sit below the higher-end GS65 in terms of looks and specifications.

All current SKUs can be configured with the Core i5-9300H or i7-9750H CPU and the GeForce GTX 1650, GTX 1660 Ti, or RTX 2060 GPU. Display options include only 1080p IPS at either 60 Hz or 120 Hz. Our specific test unit is the higher-end configuration with the Core i7 CPU, RTX 2060 GPU, and 1080p120 display retailing for about $1450 USD.

2.ASUS ROG Strix G15

Features



OUR TAKE

The Asus ROG Strix G15 is one of the best mid-range gaming laptops you can buy with impressive performance alongside a great 300Hz display, solid keyboard and a cool, quiet chassis.

There are no surprises when it comes to the G15’s design. This machine combines grey plastic with some more extravagant touches: vast sections are covered with a pattern made from the ROG letters, and the per-key RGB LED lighting on the keyboard is paired with lighting around the base.

The hinge has a black ROG logo, and different versions of the G15 use grey or red panels instead.

3.Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5

Features



OUR TAKE

Lenovo released one of the best Chromebooks of 2020 with its IdeaPad Duet two-in-one, a 10-inch Chrome OS tablet with a detachable keyboard and touchpad. However, while its small size and performance are awesome for mobility, they’re limiting if you need to spend hours using it for work.

For that, Lenovo’s 13.3-inch IdeaPad Flex 5 Chromebook is the better bet. It’s also a two-in-one, but it’s more a laptop than a tablet. With the Flex 5, you’re getting a larger display, a full-size backlit keyboard and better everyday performance with its 10th-gen Core i3 processor.

4.Acer Nitro 5

Features



OUR TAKE

The Nitro 5 has neither a face recognition webcam nor a fingerprint reader to let you skip passwords with Windows Hello. The 720p webcam is a typical laptop economy model that captures soft-focus, noisy shots. Audio doesn’t get very loud—it’ll fill a small room—but isn’t bad, short on bass but clear and mellow. DTS:X Ultra software lets you choose among music, movie, voice, strategy, RPG, and shooter presets or play with an equalizer.

Medium-thin bezels surround the full HD (1,920-by-1,080-pixel) screen, which pushes average brightness with good contrast. Fine details are sharp and not pixelated. White backgrounds are just a touch off-white, but colors, while they don’t pop, are reasonably vivid and well saturated.

5.ASUS TUF Dash 15

Features



OUR TAKE

Like those other models I mentioned, the TUF Dash F15 is a really solid laptop — except for the fact that, like the Zephyrus G14, it doesn’t have a webcam. For that reason, it’s not an ideal machine if you frequently hop on video calls for work, class, or leisure.

In terms of specs, I’m not convinced it has the chops to brave the next wave of demanding games in a year or two. I’ll explain why in a bit. At least for now, it can run most games at their highest graphical settings with relatively smooth frame rates, and it has great battery life.
