    Essentially…is the Lenovo Legion 7 better than the Acer Nitro 5?



  5. The_Guy on June 11, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    Better watch the video backwards



  6. It'sJess on June 11, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    So I watched this and it still didn’t really answer my questions. I think I would be what is called a casual gamer. I want to play games like stardew valley and other farming games on my pc. I think the craziest game i would play would be Skyrim from steam. Do I need a gaming laptop for those or can I go with something cheaper than any of these?



  7. АндрСй Π‘ΠΎΠΈΠΊΠΎ on June 11, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    I using lenovo legion 5. Rtx 2060 16Gb, i7. Second year, and i could totally recommend it. It a bit loud, but max temperature in games like rdr2 70 degrees. Also it is very easy to clean coolers, you don’t even need to remove back lid.
    Only one minus- windows 10 has some issues with this laptop during later updates…



  8. rami on June 11, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    @PCmag The Lenovo Region7 6Gen sounds Exelent but the only thing about that Laptop is the 512gb ssd, an 1Tb ssd would be so much Better how can I Replace that issue it’s mugging me to buy the Laptop.

  10. KAT on June 11, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    Can anyone please recommend me an affordable Gaming Laptop that can run Sims 4 and Fortnite? That would help me a lot, I’m not not wanting to spend no more than $700 on a decent gaming laptop. thanks in advance!



  11. TechTokPH on June 11, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    This one is the Best by far



  12. Learn Programming with Saurabh on June 11, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    All these analysis will fail. Because its tested in different environment. In Europe climate is cold so they dont overheat and run smooth whereas in india with 40′ celcius, it will work differently.



  13. Lucky Rabbit on June 11, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    Me: wanting good gaming laptop
    My wallet: *faints*



  14. Confused Boy on June 11, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    "Spoiler Alert" You can look for a laptop yourself.

    i dont buy lenovo bc upgrading is impossible w there bios



  21. Tisien Elle on June 11, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    How’s Acer nitro 5? The one with 3080 and Ryzen 9



  22. xUM94x on June 11, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    Can these laptops run programs like premier pro, after effects and 4d programs also? I have a budget of around Β£1500/2000$. I’ve been debating getting a new MacBook Pro but the gamer in me also wants to play (with good specs). Any tips on what to buy is hugely appreciated. I already have a decent PC back home in England but now I’m currently living abroad I want a laptop I can both game and work off.



  23. A Bagel on June 11, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    Bro there was an ant on my old laptops screen and now the screen is broken.



  24. jeremy duarte on June 11, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    PΓ©simas recomendaciones



  25. 2play 4win on June 11, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    Still happy with my acer predator,has 16gb ram up to 64 with a GTX 1060.
    17 inch although I’m looking for something more portable and smaller..
    Any tips?



  26. CC Killer on June 11, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    For Students or people that need there laptop for work but also want to have a smooth gaming experience playing the newest AAA games I’d recommend the asus zephyrus g15/g14, both are excellent gaming laptops with top of the line specs and screens. The price is a bit high but definitely worth it, also, the design is pretty clean and doesn’t really scream "Gamer"



  27. Alex Sviridov on June 11, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    Help, Lenovo legion pro 5/7slim or Triton SE 300?)



  28. nafstap on June 11, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    That beard…..uhhhh



  29. JaredCline310 on June 11, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    I want a laptop for gaming when I’m away from my pc, and to run ableton live with my midi controller. Do you think the MSI Katana GF66 would be able to run that fine? I’m just getting into it and have no idea how demanding it is.



  30. FaitzGamer 200T on June 11, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    I think abt the dell g15 5520 (2022) 15.6 inch 1080p 165hz or 1440p 240hz or the vector gp76 i7 12 gen 3060 16 gb ram 17 inch what do you think i should choose? On my region there are only 3060 avaiable for the vector gp76 if there are better laptops pls react on this message 2000€ budget needs to be avaiable in netherland!



  31. Jonathan Borre on June 11, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Lose the beard.



  32. Thomas on June 11, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Man you talk fast. But your descriptions and explanations are spot on. I have an Acer Predator Helios 300. It had 10th Gen i7 and NVidia 3070 when I bought it. (16 GB RAM, 8 GB VRam, 1 TB M2 SSD) Even still you can add 2 more drives AND double the RAM.) Not to mention the 165 Htz refresh rate 15" screen. And a great cooling system. What’s not to like. Do other laptops do all that?? Lol πŸ˜† Cheers!



  33. John Smith on June 11, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    There is no gaming laptop, "gaming" and "laptop" exclude each other.



  34. flamingfireguns on June 11, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    deserve a sub for this



  35. abeismain on June 11, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    Why focus on laptops under 17” screens?!!?



  36. All Guap on June 11, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    I just got a Msi 6f65 and it’s amazing i play fort and can get 240 frames



  37. Gina Marie on June 11, 2022 at 10:03 pm

    The trident really looks like it was manufactured in 2005, a total dealbraker



  44. AKAMarco on June 11, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    I can’t hear whatchu sayin from the loud music my dude



  45. Keith Bateman on June 11, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    Why have you not mentioned the hard drive / SSD storage? There’s no point buying a gaming laptop if it has a small storage space!! Games take a lot of storage.



  46. wandering daze on June 11, 2022 at 10:13 pm

    I need one just to play ps2 games in hd any input helps



  47. rami on June 11, 2022 at 10:14 pm

  49. GreenCaliforina on June 11, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    I want a laptop that can max out every setting in GTA5 and my 2060 Graphics on my pc cant do that
