As you mull and debate your choices before purchasing the best gaming laptop under $500, this article will give you not only the best selection of sub 500 gaming laptops, but also the  inputs to help you choose the best available budget gaming laptop.

Lets start with the basics, what are the key features and specifications that are a must have for your gaming laptop? Gamers tend to look for features such as the battery size and weight, battery life, the CPU Core type, the system RAM, the gaming laptop display size and resolution as well as the video memory necessary for top notch high resolution fast graphic video rendering.

Start out with your batteries, the number one complaint from Gamers about their laptops revolves around painful memories of  laptop batteries sputtering out  right at the end of the most epic video game battle in all history. Make sure your gaming laptop has batteries that are available either in big box stores or on the internet, and that you are not stuck with the gaming laptop manufacturer.

The other important considerations are the weight and material of your gaming laptop, the lighter the laptop the more convenient they are, but don’t compromise on battery life by going too far. The next step would be to evaluate the maximum CPU speeds and processing power of the key graphic and central processing units. Are they the latest generation of processors available in the budget range?

The next step is to make sure the laptop has the maximum possible inbuilt RAM for both video and processing use.  The final step is to examine storage or hard drive capability. The latest Solid State Hard drives are more expensive but definitely much faster and they would be a very desirable feature. So without further ado, here are the Best Gaming Laptops Under $500 available on the world’s most amazing marketplace.

The recommendations are based on affordability, the gaming laptop must be affordable and below $500 in price, and they must have great reviews. This is a curated list of the best value for money gaming laptops available in the United States. Please note, while I have made every effort to keep the gaming laptop listings below $500, price’s do change and some of the gaming laptops may over shoot your $500 budget by a  wee bit. Enjoy your Best Gaming Laptops Under $500 and don’t forget to leave your comments.
