 Gaming on a laptop has become yet another platform for gamers to satisfy their gaming needs, especially these days due to the hugely improved and sophisticated laptops we, as consumers, are being exposed to on a regular basis. The innovation is clear to see.

Gaming laptops are capable of hosting the very best creations these days, but finding the ideal gaming laptop for you isn’t always an easy task. Should you manage to nail down your ideal gaming laptop, though, then there’s arguably no better portable device to game on. You can play sophisticated titles like Half-Life 2 and Minecraft, find an online casino in India, battle players in FIFA across the globe. Put simply, the options are endless, and gaming on a laptop has never been so fun.

There are several brands who have let the gaming community down in the past, still. Not all laptops are suitable for gamers, basically. With that in mind – and to assist you when it comes to your hunt for a new gaming laptop – we thought we’d go through a few of the brands you should typically avoid when shopping around.



Make no mistake about it; Dell has produced some laptops worthy for any game, with previous models such as the G3 15 Gaming from the G-Series proving to be fairly popular. Still, generally, Dell creations let themselves down on the gaming front. With low-quality display, shallow keyboards and a distinct lack of gaming software in so many of their laptops, Dell had to make the list. If you’re after a solid budget laptop for your everyday needs, then look no further than a Dell, but if you’re an avid gamer keen to find a machine worthy of some of the best games out there currently, then Dell simply isn’t worth it.



A common brand which tends to be scrutinised by laptop gamers is Lenovo. A relatively new brand on the market still, Lenovo laptops are generally behind the rest. They aren’t completely useless, though, with past releases recording some success, such as the Legion Y920, but that one model doesn’t define the brand’s overall reputation in the gaming community. Lenovo has produced some shockers too, like the Y720, which was lacking in terms of performance. Overall, Lenovo is a brand to avoid when it comes to gaming. It isn’t the best.

Gigabyte Auros

Gigabytes and its sub-brand Auros has generally provided some solid gaming laptops in the past. Still, it has also registered some failures too, largely down to its poor display which really hinders any game you play on it. Their machines tend to lack colour and are incredibly dim in terms of lighting, which is a real shame given their slick design. Another issue with Gigabyte Auros is with the audio, which is a sure way to hinder any gaming experience. The Aero 15 and X9 were decent enough for their time, but in terms of gaming, there are better options out there.



Origin PC

When it comes to customisation and creating the ideal laptop for you, Origin PC is doing a stellar job, but when it comes to gaming, it most certainly isn’t. In terms of software and display, the brand fails, especially when compared to other leaders on the market. It isn’t terrible by any stretch, but it’s certainly a weaker brand compared to many others, such as Razer or MSI. Overall, though, if you’re after a gaming PC of the highest standard, then you probably won’t find one by Origin PC.
