Today we’re having a look at 5 of the most affordable and most powerful Gaming Laptops available today at PB Tech NZ, with new additions from Razer, HP Omen and Alienware all vying for the top spots!

All models below feature Nvidia ShadowPlay so you can capture or stream gameplay directly from the laptop while you play, without the need for additional hardware.

Dell GTX 1050 Gaming Laptop at PB Tech

Kicking things off with this extremely well priced Dell GTX 1050 Gaming Laptop we find a powerful 7th generation Intel Quad Core i5 paired with an excellent 4GB GTX 1050 Graphics Card and 8GB of DDR4 RAM. This laptop sports a very good looking black chassis and 15.6” screen with a large 1TB HDD for storage making it a superb all-rounder. Weighing in at just a little over 2.5KG it’s ideal for gaming on the go!

Moving up a tier we have this beautiful Asus TUF FX504 series GTX 1060 Gaming Laptop from Asus, with a 15.6” 1080p screen and also an eye-catching red LED keyboard. The Asus TUF packs the brand new intel 8th gen i7-8750H six Core with a 6GB GTX 1060 Graphics Card and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. There is 128GB storage on the SSD. The body is very unique and positions all 3x USB on the one side of the laptop!

With its distinctive AERO narrow bezel design and RGB LED backlit keyboard this model combines a very capable 6GB GTX 1060 with the latest i7-8750H Six-Core and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. Storage for this specific model is an ultra-fast 512GB SSD and it's both a sight to behold and a joy to use - with the display being an incredible 144HZ! 

With what could easily be considered as the most portable design available now in gaming laptops, the Aero 15 features a class-leading 15” 5mm bezel display giving us greater display real estate without increasing chassis size, placement on the webcam and mics within the hinge keep things very slim too, and nice touches like the detailing on the back along with the way the RGB led shines through the dual cooling fans is just beautiful.

A Thunderbolt 3 port has been added for a premium ultra-fast transfer speed at 40Gbps and the ability to connect external graphics card enclosures, or run with twin 5K external displays… the AERO 15 truly a mobile powerhouse without limits!

Another excellent contender in the performance category is this beautiful 15" HP OMEN GTX 1070 Gaming Laptop, a fearsome gaming machine. Weighing in around 2.5KG this beast of a laptop combines the new intel 8th gen i7-8750H Six Core CPU with a 8GB GTX 1070 Graphics Card and 32GB of DDR4 RAM. The 15.6” 144Hz display has a resolution of 1920x1080 with G-Sync built in. It’s also got a ThunderBolt 3 port so if you’re wanting to add something like an external graphics card box, the HP Omen is ready to go, though you'll be hard pressed to want more performance than the GTX 1070 inside already offers.

Asus Zephyrus M Gaming laptops at PB Tech

Rounding off our top 5 we have the now iconic Asus Republic of Gamers GX501 GS Gaming Laptop and it really is something pretty special :) The unique design has been updated to place the keyboard to the rear of the touchpad in a traditional layout.

The keyboard features Aura RGB lighting which lets you customise colours and dynamic effects for the entire keyboard, you can also adjust the QWER and WASD clusters separately for the perfect layout. 

The underside of the Zephyrus even opens up to provide additional cooling for the 8GB GTX 1070 Max Q designed graphics card and Intel i7-8750H inside!

Amazing laptops indeed! Check out all these and many, many more in our massive PB Tech Gaming Laptop Department today!
