We Help A KFVD Listener Find A Laptop For Some Light Gaming

Jeff in Rockwell City, Iowa wants to know where he can find an affordable laptop that will let him play games

Alienware Gaming Laptop

Jeff asked: “I’m looking at buying a new laptop and I want to know where i can get the most bang for my buck. I do play a little bit of gaming, some 3D gaming. not a whole lot. Mostly Facebook and e-mail. Where’s the best place to go?”

 

It all depends on how much value you place on being able to play those 3D games. Facebook and email can easily be handled by anything, even a Chromebook. Gaming is what’s going to raise your price and your laptop’s bulk.

If you don’t mind doing a little legwork, you can get some deals by going to each of your preferred manufacturers’ sites and searching for their low end gaming machines. They won’t be cheap, anything with “gaming” in the description will likely start at $700 if not more.

If you want to do less work, NewEgg has a section on gaming laptops and it’s probably a good site to go to get a general idea of what’s out there, since you can filter by price or features that you’d prefer.

Surprisingly enough, the somewhat revived TigerDirect Business (TigerDirect regular doesn’t exist anymore) does have a section on gaming laptops. It may be a bad place to buy, since you have to register as a business, but it may be a good place to browse and see what’s out there.
