The best gaming laptops usually cost well above RM3000. Those will give you the ideal gaming experience on the go. But maybe we want to start small first.

So we compiled a list of laptops that would make a great budget gaming laptop for you. Not to worry, just because these laptops are cheaper, doesn't mean you can't get a decent gaming experience.

Just don't use Ultra settings.

How we selected these models

First, the laptop must have dedicated graphics. To run games, even low settings, integrated graphics would not be powerful enough.

Secondly, it needs to be under the RM2000 range all in, needless to say. To go any higher, you might as well save up for a gaming laptop with high specs.
