7 Budget Gaming Laptops for Back To School (And a Little Gaming, Too)

1. Acer Nitro 5

Now we take a look at the laptop with the best price/performance balance. It features the quad-core processor from Intel and a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, which has 4 GB of VRAM. That is already a sign of a genuinely powerful gaming station.

You may ask why the price is so low. The reason is because it hosts a 256 GB SSD, which may seem a bit underwhelming when taking into account that some modern games require up to 50-60 GB of disk space. But it's extremely fast and completely noiseless.

The battery performs a bit better than on the ASUS and holds up to three hours of non-stop gameplay.
