7 Best Gaming Laptops of 2017 for Casual and Hardcore Gamers

ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 Gaming Laptop

Price: $2,299
Buy It On: Newegg

Although the ASUS ROG comes with a hefty price tag, this gaming laptop features the new Max-Q design that's literally based off aerospace rockets and allows for an incredibly sleek and small form while still packing in all the top of the line specs.

It's sort of amazing how sleek they got this model -- at under an inch thick and weighing less than 5 pounds. With a 1080 graphics card packed in that tiny frame, there really won't be anything you can't run at Ultra settings. 

Don't forget when buying peripherals that many of the ROG devices can sync up their color schemes, pulsing the same RGB options in tandem, so if you want a wired or wireless gaming mouse instead of the trackpad, consider one with ROG branding.

GX501 Specs:

  • Display: 15.6" Full-HD 120 Hz
  • Resolution: 1,920x1,080
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 2.8GHz
  • Memory: 8GB DDR4
  • Storage: 256 GB PCIe SSD
