The Best Gaming Laptops under £1000

Just because you're on a fixed budget doesn't mean you can't enjoy gaming. In this article we list our top picks of the best affordable laptops that you can order and get next day delivery on. Alternatively, you could pay for these purchases on finance so you don't need to worry about paying in one big bulk.

 

1. Lenovo IdeaPad

The Best Gaming Laptops under £1000

 

This one is my personal favourite on the list, which is why it's first! Isn't it beautiful? Let's get to those juicy stats first of all: 

 

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 processor with speeds of 3.3 GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Storage: SSD 512GB
  • Graphics: GeForce RTX 3050 Ti
  • Refresh rate: 120 Hz

Not bad, eh? This laptop is a solid choice for gaming on the go, and can handle titles like Fortnite with ease. For more demanding games, it may need the eye candy toning down a little to preserve a solid 60fps, but for its price, this laptop packs a hefty little punch.

2. ASUS F15

 This is by far your best value for money laptop. This little fella can handle so much for its size, and you'd be surprised by its power. It's quick and versatile and provides stunning display capabilities. Let's check out those specs:

 

  • CPU: Intel Core i5
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: SSD 512GB
  • Graphics: RTX 3050
  • Refresh rate: 144 Hz

 

Convinced yet? I sure was. The storage is upgradable so you won't run out of space and it's a nifty little thing. One of its biggest drawbacks is the short battery life, but as long as you have your charger, you can game fast all day.

  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: SSD 512GB

4. ASUS TUF F17

The Best Gaming Laptops under £1000

This is included on a technicality: it's still under £1000! It's our highest priced laptop on this list for a reason. Because it's an absolute beast.

 

  • Intel Core i5-11400H
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: SSD 512GB
  • Graphics: RTX 3050 Ti
  • Refresh rate: 144 Hz

This thing does it all: Immersive surround sound, tough and durable, an integrated cooling system and all with a fast and quiet performance included. I love the RGB aesthetic of this laptop. It's just sheer perfection for my kind of gaming needs.
