If you’re someone who’s into computer games, you might realize that a regular notebook/computer isn’t enough for a seamless gaming experience. Which is why it would be a great idea to get yourself a gaming notebook. But how would you know which one to get? Read on to find out.

Gaming notebooks are built with features you won’t find on a regular notebook which makes them pricier. So before you go notebook shopping, make sure you’ve got enough cash.

Often part of what makes gaming a great experience are the quality of the graphics. That’s why in choosing your gaming notebook, you should check the quality of the video card. General purpose notebooks have minimal graphics processing power which can’t handle most modern games. The video card will need to have at least 128mb of RAM and have a fairly good processing speed.

The next thing you should look at is the amount of system RAM the notebook has. For internet browsing or word processing 256mb is enough. However for a decent gaming notebook you will need 1gb of RAM or more if possible. This is because most modern games will use 1gb where some will use even more. A good amount of RAM is essential to play today’s modern games.

With a good video card and a fair amount of system RAM the notebook will need strong batter power. With high quality battery, you can play games for longer. If possible find a notebook that accommodates a second battery.

Most manufacturers have pre-built gaming configurations. These configurations can end up costing less compared to custom built notebooks but can also be lacking in some aspects.

By taking all these things into consideration, you’ll surely find the gaming notebook for all your gaming needs!
