Currently, Nvidia’s new GPU lineup is as scarce as hens’ teeth. The only ones you can get hands-on are marked at ridiculously high price tags by scalpers. Anyways, if you are looking to get that latest-gen RTX experience there is good news for you. The latest 30-series Nvidia Geforce RTX GPU series has finally landed on laptops and you might have a better chance of getting your hands on one of these laptops rather than the real thing at least until later this year. When these cards are combined with the latest Intel and AMD CPUs, this latest generation of gaming laptops can easily outperform even the higher-end previous-gen desktop PCs. So here are the top 4 gaming laptops you can buy right now to fulfill your gaming and traveling needs.

02. Razer Blade Pro 17 – Best big-screen laptop
Razer Blade series has a prominent spot in the gaming laptop market as they are built to perform extremely well, also while being extremely ergonomic and portable. The new Razer Blade Pro 17 packs either a giant 17-inch 4K 165Hz display or a 17-inch FHD 300Hz display, according to the model you go for.

03. Gigabyte G5 – Best budget-friendly laptop
Even though Gigabyte’s flagship gaming brand is Aorus and the flagship laptops come under that brand, the G5 and G7 series have also been on par with the rest, performance-wise. Out of the two, G5 stands out due to its extremely affordable price, 240Hz high refresh rate display, and the latest RTX 30-series GPUs it comes with. The 10th Gen Intel Core i7/i5 H-Series CPUs that come with them also boost up its value making it fit all sorts of standards including entertainment and productivity.
04. Razer Blade Stealth 13 – Best portable laptop
Gaming laptops aren’t usually the type of laptops you use when traveling. This is mainly because they are bulkier, heavier, and consumes more power. However, Razer has managed to once again sneak into the list with their Razer Blade Stealth 13, securing the spot for the best portable laptop. Just like its name suggests, the laptop is only 13-inches in size and it is silent and less power consuming. There are a few models of this laptop that has different displays; one including a 60Hz OLED display, one including a 120Hz FHD display, and the other including a 4K touchscreen display. And this little beast also packs the latest Intel Core i7 1165G7 mobile GPU alongside a quite old GTX 1650 Ti GPU.
