  1. Im thinking to look for a new laptop soon. I do not really play games though. It will be mainly for blogging.
    But my brother does play quite a lot. He might find your website interesting.

    • Hi Connie. It’s OK if you don’t play games. My sister doesn’t either. But the has an MSI gaming laptop that costed about $1400 at that time. She mostly needs the 16GB RAM because of the myriad of programs that she needs to open.
      When it comes to gaming laptops, you mostly need to consider the CPU and GPU because you cannot replace them. The disks and RAM are replaceable (upgradeable). This list of laptops consist of the best gaming laptops under 700 dollars.
      Of course new laptops come to the picture and the article needs to be upgraded accordingly. If you have a laptop on your mind, you can tell me (by PM or by leaving a comment here), so that I can assist you in making a better decision.
      Thanks for stopping by to drop a comment. Have a beautiful day.

  2. Excellent article on Real Gaming Laptops. I’ve been searching for a better laptop that will have high graphics capacity and soon I will get it, and with this having been read, my search is over.

    The specification of these products is wonderful and better for me. I really gained tremendously from your detailed article,thanks for sharing.

    • I’m glad you found this article useful. The number 1 (Asus Tuf FX505DT-AH51) and number 2(MSI GF63 Thin 8SC-030) are the 2 best gaming laptops under 700 dollars. You won’t find any gaming laptops with the GTX 1650 graphics card, which is way better than the GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1050 and RX 260X, which are common among laptops at this price range.

      You can google for benchmarks between these graphics cards and you will see the difference in processing power.

      You can share this article in case some of your friends need a recent article on cheap gaming laptops. Glad you stopped by and shared your thoughts. Have a nice day.

  3. Thanks for taking your time to engage in these helpful reviews… I have been searching for a very comprehensive and meaningful list like this since yesterday, and I’m glad I found one already.

    I’m tired of using my old laptop because of its low performance while playing games and its weak battery. It hangs and goes off. I’m glad I found a reliable list of gaming laptops under 700 dollars, because I don’t need to spend more than that. Thanks for this useful list.

    • Hi Willy. I’m glad you found this article useful. I put the laptops from best to worst so it’s easy if you want to choose from the best ones. The Asus Tuf FX505DT-AH51 is the best one because it has a 120Hz Monitor and the GTX 1650 graphics card.

      2nd best is the MSI GF63 Thin 8SC-030. It goes second because it doesn’t have a 120Hz Monitor. All the other specs are the same. So I suggest that if you buy a laptop in the near future, to get one of the above. They are by far the best gaming laptops under 700 dollars.

      Well maybe in a month or so, more laptops with the GTX 1650 and this price range will come into surface. But I doubt the specs will get greater than those mentioned above.

      As for the battery, most gaming laptops can last at most 2 hours while gaming. So it’s better if you have it plugged in and use the battery only for emergencies.

      I’m glad you visited today. Please share this article if you think it can benefit others. Have a nice day.

  4. This is absolutely something people need to be aware of. It’s not necessarily expensive equals better quality. Around 3 years back I bought a MSI gaming laptop for around 2000$! And guess what. It was working two weeks before it didn’t enymore! So your service are surely welcomed. And I’m sure it’s not just my opinion.

    Even you wait just one year of buying tech, the prices has fallen drastically. You have done the gamers a huge favor by offering content like this.

    • Hi Fred. It’s true that expensive isn’t always better. These days budget gaming laptops have quite a lot of horsepower so there is really no need to go deeper into your pocket unless you really need to. And of course even then you must be careful. At every price there is something good and something better.

      The first laptop I got was a Sony Vaio (don’t remember the exact model). It was like 15 years ago or something. It costed around $2000 but it held me for more than a decade. It was like 3-4 years ago that the screen stopped working. It’s pretty old to use nowadays anyways. Graphics card and CPU are obsolete and cannot be upgraded.

      Prices drop all the time so I guess in the next quarter some laptops might have gone cheaper. So it’s crucial to update the lists as soon as possible something changes.

      As for now, the Asus Tuf (FX505DT-AH51) and the MSI GF63 Thin (8SC-030) are the best gaming laptops under 700 dollars. They have the same specs except that the Asus has the 120Hz Monitor. It’s cool that there is an 120 Hz Monitor at this price range.

      Of course the Acer Nitro 5s are good (and popular), but I haven’t seen them with the new GTX 1650 graphics card. I guess I will in the near future so I must keep an eye and update this article!

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment. Be healthy and have a nice day.

  5. Thank you for this review. This is very detailed, I like the way you presented these laptops. I am actually in the market for one and I am still confused on what to get. I already bookmarked your website and will go back here when I’m already decided on what to buy. Thanks again for this very informative article. All the best!

    • Hello AJ. Thanks for stopping by. I put the laptops from best to worst so the Asus Tuf (FX505DT-AH51) and the MSI GF63 Thin (8SC-030) are the best gaming laptops under 700 dollars. Of course things can change (for example in the next month) so I will keep the list updated.

      I write the exact model numbers because things can vary and there are many Asus Tuf and MSI GF63. Feel free to PM me (through the Contact Me form – link is in the bottom) or leave a comment here if you need further clarification and assistance.

      Be healthy and have a nice day.

    • Thanks Torgny for stopping by. In this article I tried to provide the best gaming laptops under 700 dollars. Hope I did that. If you found the list useful, please share it so others can benefit as well.
      Or if you have any constructive criticism about the layout of the article, don’t hesitate to tell me about it. Take care and have a nice day.

  6. There is so much choice out there for a good gaming laptop. I have been looking for the right one for a while, as its my first gaming laptop it has been hard to know what i should look for.
    I think i have found the one for me in your list, i am going to look at some more reviews and hopefully order it soon.
    Thanks!
    MrJimish

    • Glad to hear you found what you were looking for. Check out the Lenovo Ideapad L340 as well. It has the GTX 1650, 512NVMe SSD and 9th gen i5 CPU (i5-9300) and costs less than $700 at the moment.
      Well personally I would still go for the Asus Tuf FX505DT because a 120Hz monitor at this price is rare to find.
      Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day.

  7. Such a detailed review about gaming laptops! Laptops can get so expensive so this is a great article, complete, that consists of laptops less than $700. It does help one choose the right one!!
    I don’t need to buy a laptop but would defenitely get your advice and expertise if I happen to have to buy a new one. Thanks!!

    • Hi Anne-Caroline. Well these are the budget gaming laptops but you won’t need to spend more than $1400 for a gaming laptop unless you really have money to spare.
      When buying a gaming laptop, you firstly need to look for the graphics card. It’s the main vehicle games use. Then you look the CPU. Although less used than GPU (Graphics Card) for gaming, there are some games that use quite a lot of CPU as well (You might hear the term CPU-bound).
      Although it’s a gaming laptop, that doesn’t make it unusable for other cases as well, such as graphics design, programming and of course daily routine tasks. It’s just for graphics design and video editing, you might need to upgrade to more RAM.
      Also today I found about Lenovo Ideapad L340 (81LK00HDUS). I can put it easily in my top 3 budget gaming laptop list. It has the new GTX 1650 GPU, the new 9th gen CPU (i5-9300), 8GB RAM (typical for this price), 512GB NVMe SSD (very good deal for this price).
      Feel free to contact me through my Contact Page or put a comment here. Whatever you want.
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment. I wish you a beautiful day.

  8. Great article. but i was wondering, i heard acer have a overheating problem, in general, does that go for the nitro 5 as well?

    • No, most the reviews I’ve seen about Acer Nitro 5s don’t mention overheating problems. Also they have good rating and lots of reviews (in big shops). I read reviews about overheating with HPs though.
      The overheating problem usually can be solved through software (if there is any problem). And the laptop needs cleaning twice a year. You could use compressed air for that. Else if you leave it uncleaned too long, you might have to open it.
      Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day.

  9. I wish I would have seen this before I recently purchased a new laptop just literally a week ago. I went with the Aspire 3 Ryzen.

    I am not a gamer but I liked the color and design and the specs were pretty good as well. I have owned a couple of the HP Pavilion’s but you have some interesting choices here that I really like.

    I already know I want to purchase a second laptop so that I can have one for work and personal use. This will help a lot. Thanks for sharing and providing great options.

    • Hello Nate. I guess you are talking about the model A315-41-R3RF of the Acer Aspire 3 series. It is at $357.67 right now on Amazon. Well if you don’t play games and you know you won’t play any in the future, I see no reason buying a gaming laptop.
      Maybe you could play some browser games from time to time with the Aspire 3. As for the second laptop, it’s the same thought process. If you think in the future you might play some big titles or use design and architect type programs, then a gaming laptop should do the job.
      Personally, the maximum amount of money I would give for a gaming laptop will be $1600 tops. After that, it’s like more Hard Drive space, more RAM and other excessive features. But even budget gaming laptops these days can do the trick.
      Since RAM and Disk are upgradeable even in cheap gaming laptops, you mostly need to care about the GPU first and the CPU second (because they are not upgradeable). Of course if your laptop supports NVMe SSD Disk and not plain SATA3 SSD, that would improve your whole experience as well.
      HDDs for me are a secondary type of storage and not a main one where you put the operating system and your most critical applications in.
      Anyways, I chatted up too much I guess. If you need any assistance, feel free to comment here or PM me through the Contact Form at the bottom of the site. Be healthy and have a nice day.

    • I’m glad you found the list useful. You can PM me through the contact form at the bottom or comment here before making a buy so as to provide you with the latest information (If I didn’t update the article). Have a nice day.

  10. I had no idea that you could buy a gaming laptop for under 700. I haven’t been gaming for many years but I used to play Starcraft 2, and Warcraft 2 and 3. This is an awesome way learn how to get going again if I was gonna get into the PC gaming scene again.

    • Hello Jake. Yes you can and the laptops at this price range are quite good as well. You can play even the most demanding games at most the Medium Preset.
      As you have seen, the first gaming laptop on the list is the Asus Tuf FX505DT-AH51, which is the best for this price range at the moment.

  11. Holy Shit dude,

    I came here just to check out some cheap gaming laptops but you really fucking delivered on everything. I was expecting just some short spec overviews and maybe some price points, but you including everything under the sun. Specs, games you can play, laptops nice and colorfully ranked, as well as much more.

    I honestly don’t even want to know how long it took you to type out this post. But thank heavens you did. I also like that you provide videos of the laptops running games, as well as problems with throttling issues, and even the best amazon reviews of the machines and solutions to the problems.

    You really provide the whole package here and I am honestly and thoroughly impressed. This is just amazing stuff. I will definitely be back to read more after I go buy my new gaming laptop.

    Do you have any games to recommend for a newbie gamer who only has experience with consoles?

    Cheers,

    Max

    • Hi Max. My goal is to provide everything possible in these lists. Why roam to other sites when you can have it in one? It took me quite a lot of time (maybe 2 weeks but I try to improve the times).
      I always try to come up with new useful things to add and of course in an organized and eye-friendly way. I mostly play MOBA (Arena) games like League of Legends. I might start playing Dota 2 as well.
      PubG and Fortnite are popular games. You can try one of them. When I get a new laptop, I might start playing big titles as well.
      I’m glad you found this article useful. Have a nice day.
