    Hi there i absolutely love your videos and everything. You work pretty hard and we all appreciate your effort. I just had one question from you. Like in this current market 2023 of laptops you have like so many options more than thousands of options. I just wanted to ask you the best gaming laptop you can buy in todays market. My budget is $2500 dollars. I dont care about the looks or the battery life. What im looking for is the most powerful gaming laptop. In performance wise. Laptop should run about any game. Laptop that beats other laptop in performance wise. Laptop that wouldnt have any problems for at least 5 years in performance wise. Like it should never hang or freeze while playing games. Also im a student so a laptop which is insane in gaming very powerful and also a laptop which could do both playing games and also regular stuff that students do like browsing, multitasking etc etc. But it should be a monster of gaming laptop. Like you yourself would consider buying that laptop than any other laptop. One last thing is that it should also have good display. So please give me like 3 or 4 options but please rank them like no 1 that you would recommend then no 2,3,4. So please i would really appreciate that. And also please if you are giving me the list of laptops like i asked also mention its processor then RAM then whatever you have to mention because the thing is that lets say you give me an option of lenovo legion 7. So that laptop has so many different options like slim 7i then 7 then 7i and also they have options like RTX 4070, 4080 . SO please specify everything. Also i would appreciate that if you could make a video were you comapred all laptops and ranked them like S,A,B,C,D,E,F you do this every year and since 2023 is about to end and also the black friday and cyber monday is near majority of the people would buy it because they want a good deal. And if you make a video on comparing all the laptops people would have an idea on what to buy. So its a very humble request.

    Hello Jarrod. Huge fan of yours, and I really appreciate this system you’ve put in place to contact you.
    I’m coming with this request which would really mean a lot to me. I want to buy a laptop, and I discovered three HP Omen 17s — all on sales. You might ask why Omens only, It’s just a personal favorite thing for me, and HP is prominent where I live so customer service is easier.

    The first is an i9-12900H with rtx 3080ti (16GB VRAM) and 32Gb DDR5 Ram, which I found thanks to you (Gaminglaptopdeals site). It’s also the same price with the second, a 13th gen i7-13700hx, 16GB DDR5 Ram & RTX 4070(8gb VRAM), directly from HP. Both go for $1549.

    The third one, however, is a QHD 240Hz i7-13700HX with 16GB RAM & RTX 408012GB, for $1870. Which brings me to my real question —it’s sold by “Antonline” and I’m a bit worried about that, I’ve seen mixed reviews about them but I don’t know if they’re legit. But if they are, should I go ahead to buy it?

    Generally, which laptop is the best, and also the best value for money overall? I would really appreciate this answer, I never get answers on reddit and I know no tech specialists personally. Thank you so much for all you do for the community, excited for your response!

      HP won’t be lending us the Omen 17 this year (I tried to get it) so I don’t know much about that model specifically. Based on the specs only, the 4080 will demolish the 3080 Ti, but antonline is a bit sus – we don’t link to their sales on the https://gaminglaptop.deals website due to past issues. It sounds like most people don’t have problems, so up to you on whether you want to roll the dice.

  • Victor O.C

    I thought so as well. The 4080 is down to $1729 now, even more tempting lol. I think I’m gonna roll the dice, that’s the cheapest 4080 I’d see but I could wait till Black Friday & see if I get nice deals on B&H.
    Thank you for responding, really, really appreciate your response thanks man, you’re doing so much for the community. Legend

    Hey Jarrod
    I’m from South Africa and am looking to buy a new laptop (specifically a gaming laptop). Ideally I would’ve wanted a deskop gaming pc, but unfortunately I need the portability of a laptop for my job, yet I also want gaming performance for my spare time.
    My problem, however, is that in my country the choices aren’t as great as in USA and Europe. This leaves me between a rock and a hard place to choose which laptop to go with.
    Firstly, I would say that given my choice limit, the brand doesn’t bother me too much, but I need some guidance when it comes to the internals, specifically the GPU. I can get an RTX 3050 TI, RTX 3060, RTX 4050 and RTX 4060 all for within a 5 – 10% price difference. They are all paired with either i5 or i7 12th gens or Ryzen 5 or 7 7000 series, which are all good in my opinion.
    I just can’t seem to make the choice when considering the longevity of each. Although I know that the RTX 30 series cards are older, with a lot of your testing, they seem to perform better than the 40 series – plus they are also wildly more popular than the 40 series. I don’t know if the 40’s performance might get better with future nVidea updates or even things such as DLSS, Frame generation etc. I also need a machine that would stay relevant for 5-6 years as gaming laptops in South Africa are very expensive (example – the Lenovo LOQ16 you tested a while ago with RTX 4060, Ryzen 7840HS, 16gb Ram and 512 ssd went on SALE recently for just under $2000, currency converted)
    Can you please attempt to assist me in my choice. Would highly appreciate it.

    • Jarrod

      3060 is like 50% faster than 3050 Ti and definitely worth it. 3060 beats 4050, though not by much and 4050 gets you frame generation support so depends how much you care about that. The CPU performance isn’t that big, but generally speaking, AMD for better battery life.

  • Zabian

    Hey Jarrod! Im basically brand new to pc gaming and have heard good things about you and your channel, I was just wondering if you could steer me in the right direction for a gaming laptop. Im going to college next fall and want an all around laptop that has decent battery life and as high performance as possible. It would be used for school as well as gaming, I play pretty large open world games and want to play them at decent grapics. Im not too worried about price but wouldn’t mind saving money, Like I said im a newbie so any advice helps, thanks!

  • Emeka Ohagwa

    Hi Zabian. Jarrod would most likely respond to you as well but I thought to share my 2 cents with my little experience:

    If you’re after battery life, there’s gotta be a trade off with performance. Battery life and gaming PCs are NOT two things that go hand in hand, especially if you’re looking to run powerful games at high frame rates.

    This is not a response to the laptop you *should* get, but just a disclaimer. Between Performance/battery, there’s gotta be a compromise with one, at least to an extent.
