Considerations to Make

Purchasing a new computer is never an easy decision with all the different options out there. Because gaming computers are built with performance in mind, it can be even more difficult to find the right one. Processor speed, hard drive size, graphics cards, RAM... It can sometimes get very confusing. Here are several considerations when picking out the gaming laptop or netbook right for you.

Hard Drive

Ensuring you have a large hard drive is essential when buying a gaming computer. Games take up a lot of space and being told you can't download something because your hard drive is full is a definite bummer. For light gamers, 1TB should be enough, but maybe opt for something a little bigger -- like 2TB -- to futureproof yourself. There's also a world of difference between mechanical hard drives and solid state hard drives (SSDs) when it comes to load speeds. Mechanical hard drives use moving parts when reading and writing files, but SSDs don't, meaning they're much faster. Games and other media will load speedy quick on a computer with an SSD, so it may be worth opting for if you have the option.

Processor and Memory

A good gaming laptop or netbook needs a good processor with enough RAM (random access memory) to run the latest games at optimal settings. The higher the GHz number on your laptop or netbook, the faster your processor will be. Likewise, the more RAM you have, the more powerful your computer will be.

Graphics Card

Integrated graphics cards on laptops and netbooks will only get you so far. To enjoy games on even a light gaming laptop or netbook, you should look into a mid or high-end GPU from brands like Nvidia or AMD. These brands make laptop-specific chips that can deliver state-of-the-art graphics in your games -- something you won't get with an integrated option.

Gaming Peripherals

Gaming keyboards and mice for gamers are just a couple of the peripherals that can make marathon sessions more comfortable. Laptops and netbooks tend to have smaller keyboards and trackpads, which means the right accessories can be important to your enjoyment of a game.
