3 Best Gaming Laptops For 2020.

#1 ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX701

According to ASUS, the ROG Zephyrus S "sets the standard for ultra-slim Windows 10 Pro gaming laptops". Indeed, with a super-narrow-bezel 17-inch display on a computer that is just 18.7mm thin, giving it a screen-to-body ratio of 81%, and that includes a GeForce RTX 2080 GPU and 9th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, this laptop is a beast. It includes G-Sync for gaming and optimizing battery life. The panels are two IPS-level panels. "The HDR panel enhances AAA titles with richer colors, brilliant whites ... and extends battery life with Self-Refresh options". This display runs at a massive 300Hz giving it blisteringly fast response times, optimal for gaming! The design of the chassis is beautiful, slim, and light. It incorporates Nvidia Max-Q as well as the RTX GPU.

Options on Amazon include: 1TB NVMe SSD, 1TB 970 EVO PLUS NVMe SSD, 1TB 970 PRO NVMe SSD, 2TB NVMe SSD, and 2TB 970 EVO NVMe SSD.

#2 MSI GS65 Stealth Gaming Laptop

The CUK MSI GS65 Gaming Laptop boasts of an Intel Core i7-8750H Six Core CPU, and a Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6 GPU, powering a Full HD 15.6", 144Hz panel. The MSI Stealth is a great looking laptop computer for 2020 and is well designed and built. Minor issues include a low battery life of 2 hours and 30 minutes of standard usage. If you compare the power performance with #1, the performance is only a little lower but similar. However this one has a wider display screen at 17.3" FHD. It has an amazing keyboard on it with optimal range key-travel and Per-Key RGB lighting! Thickness is 0.7".

Buy it on Amazon.

#3 Razer Blade Pro 17

Powered by the latest 9th Intel Core i7-9750H processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q Graphics Card, and a 17.3" 144Hz FHD Display, the Razer Blade Pro 17 is both a powerful gaming laptop and extremely high graphics workstation for video rendering for example. It comes with a per-key backlighting of over 16.8 millions colors but at a hefty price for the RTX 2080 Max-Q version. However its performance makes it one of the best gaming laptops in 2020. It features a great display and speakers but no numpad, which might be a bother. The 144Hz refresh rate monitor, paired with a great GPU and SSD memory allow you to hit 80 to 90 FPS in most modern video games such as Star Wars Jedi - Fallen Order or Apex Legends, unless you're playing Ghostbusters the video game remastered, I don't judge.

Options specifications and graphics cards on Amazon are: RTX 2060, RTX 2070 Max-Q, and RTX 2080 Max-Q.
