Best Msi 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.

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.back to menu ↑
2.ASUS ROG Strix G15
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.
Build quality is reasonable, too: this machine will withstand daily use and frequent transport, even if the plastic at the display’s base and below the keyboard flexes a little too much.back to menu ↑
3.Lenovo Chromebook Flex
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.back to menu ↑
4.SAMSUNG Galaxy Book Pro
The Samsung Galaxy Book Pro is the latest flagship from the almost-all-conquering electronics giant. We say ‘almost’, as while Samsung dominates in many fields, including smartphones, TVs and storage, to name just a few, it’s not found the same level of success with laptops.
However, with the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro, it’s clear that the company wants to change that, and has made a stylish high-end laptop that packs Intel’s latest 11th generation processors. In fact, like the HP Spectre x360 (2021) and Dell XPS 13 (Late 2020), the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro is an Intel Evo-certified laptop.back to menu ↑
5.ASUS TUF Gaming Laptop
It doesn’t come packed with the top-of-the-line flagship components that power the best gaming PCs. And, it’s not outfitted with the kind of flashiness that you would find in Asus’ Zephyrus gaming laptops, which are also plenty powerful in their own right. In fact, the Asus TUF A15 is a pretty standard looking gaming laptop.
The Asus TUF A15 (also known as the Asus F506IV) sets itself apart by offering great performance, powered by the solid Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU and the AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs that have seriously impressed us, in a gaming laptop whose quality of performance is matched by a very reasonable price tag.back to menu ↑
