Too many options

With their powerful components, colorful designs and premium prices, gaming laptops are a different beast than typical mainstream notebooks. And they need to be if you want to play demanding games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Grand Theft Auto V, explore virtual worlds with either the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift and enjoy smooth gameplay on high frame rates. They're also a different beast when it comes to design, offering a chassis with more aggressive lines and multicolour keyboards.

Depending on your budget, your lifestyle and the games you want to play, you could end up spending anywhere from £250 to £3300 on a system that's likely to weigh between 2Kg and 3.5Kg.
