Gaming for gamers is a combination of extra-ordinary Graphics, mind blowing sound, realistic screen resolution and crystal clear immersive atmosphere which is what they expect their Gaming Laptop to give them.

With this sudden surge of laptops it is difficult for us to decide and finalize which laptop is the best. So here we are going to point out some of the best in the market at the moment.
Features to Look For in a Good Gaming Laptop:
- Video: In Video department you need to look out for the resolution of the screen and also the graphic card configuration for example Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M or AMD Radeon HD 6990M are the best in the lot at the moment. And the screen resolution prefered these days is HD which is 1080P and i would say to get the best gaming experience this is a must and this also helps
- Audio: Audio also plays an important role in Gaming the sound effects gets you involved into the game which you are playing, so most of the laptops available these days are having Dtsi Surround sound or Dolby Digital sound.
- Processor: The best these days for supporting gaming is the Intel Core i5 or i7 processors which work good and do not let you down with your gaming experience. With these high end processors you can use 3D graphics and play without being interrupted.
- Warranty: Most Manufacturers give 1 year warranty for all laptops and this holds good for Gaming laptops too, keep in mind that if you are going to other countries take International warranty which will cost a little extra but will be beneficial if you encounter any problem in the future.
- Other Features: Display Screens are available in 15in 17in and even 20+ inch displays, i prefer taking bigger display laptops if it is intended for gaming. Make sure you have Blue Ray reader as many games these days are coming in Blue Ray and the number and Speed of USB ports also plays an important role in Game Play.
