Laptop manufacturers are redoubling their efforts to offer configurations capable of satisfying players while keeping their nomadic appearance.
We think, for example, of MSI with its GS60 Gold Edition model which weighs less than 2 kilograms while allowing 4K to be considered, but also Gigabyte whose P37X model gives access to the 17.3 inch format and to a GeForce GTX 980M while staying under the 3 kilo mark. Without forgetting Asus, whose ROG brand offers a G501 model with a SSD part at 1,400 MB / s and a 4K display.
