It is a great choice for those who want a good gaming setup without completing their pockets completely. It has a 15.6ā€ IPS FullHD display, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, and GTX 1050 Ti graphics. The only concern here is the mediocre Ryzen 5 mobile chipset, which isn’t as good as its Intel counterpart.

In terms of core gaming performance itself, this laptop can run most graphics-intensive games in medium settings at playable fps. However, you’ll have to minimize or disable certain aspects of the games to achieve that besides graphics settings itself. Another impressive set of features on the HP Pavilion 15 Power is the front-firing dual stereo speakers; tuned by Bang & Olufsen

In terms of design, unlike other laptops in this list, it doesn’t give the gaming vibe. Hence, you can take this with you in your business meetings or lectures. The display quality is better as well, with 65% of sRGB coverage. With privacy in mind, Lenovo has also added a physical shutter for the webcam, which you can turn on/off anytime. However, one thing that’s disappointing is how the Lenovo Gaming L340 has a single RAM slot; thus effectively denying dual-channel memory configuration.

The MSI GF63 is also a good option to those who want a thin-and-light gaming laptop. Weighing just 1.86kg, this is the lightest laptop on this list. Yet, the lighter chassis also comes at a compromise of thermal performance. It has three heat pipes and a single fan, which may cause some heating issues.
