Gaming Laptop Recommendations

Hi all!

I haven't got a set price yet as it will take me some time to save anyway due to being an unemployed graduate. But I'm looking for some advice and I hope you can help.

I'm looking into streaming my gaming in the future and I would like recommendations for what to look for in a laptop. I currently have a laptop but I want to keep that separate. This laptop I wanna use for my games and photo/video editing.

I use Adobe products, Twitch, Origin, Steam etc. I play quite a bit of Sims as well (Origin), and I have downloadable which is normally kept on a hard drive.

Many thanks! :)

Hi @nickstervarius ,

Its really difficult to give advice on what to purchase if you don't have a budget, how much are you planning on saving and roughly how long is that going to take? If you're going to need (for arguments sake) a year to save up £1500 for the PC then there is not a lot of benefit in getting to grips with what hardware is available now.

Not that I'm trying to put you off (window shopping is fun!). But its best to wait till you've got a better idea of what your budget constraints and time frame will be before getting advice on a build. If you might be ready to purchase in a week or so (maybe a month or so?) then its worth a look in my opinion.

Well I'm currently unemployed - So as I said, it is going to take some time to save. I would maybe minimum £600 onwards? Time wise, it could be a couple of months, could be 6 months, could be over a year. I know I ain't making it easier but that is the best answer I can give.

There's no hope for a gaming laptop at £600.

Maybe £800 And even then the performance is highly questionable in fitire games

If it could take some time to save up the money needed, my advice would be: Read up on everything you can laptop-related, spend time looking through this forum and seeing what has been recommended to other people....then, when the time comes, you will have better knowledge and a known budget. While a system could be recommended now, it may be that, by the time you have saved the money, a better system may be available or hardware has changed, thus rendering any advice given now meaningless.

Personally, I started reading this forum back in October, absorbed as much as I could and in January I finally posted asking for advice.....however, as I had read so many recommendations to other people, I had a good idea of the system I would need and it just needed small adjustments
