All the best gaming laptops for levelling up


PC gaming is said by many to be the best way to play video games. In a lot of ways, that's true -- high-end gaming computers pack more graphical and processing power than any home console does, and they offer a level of freedom in terms of customisation and game choice that you're just not going to find anywhere else. But when it comes down to it, starting your foray into PC gaming can be extremely complicated, especially when you're new to all of this. Unlike consoles that you can just pick up and play, gaming computers require an intense amount of research into each and every component. GPUs, CPUs, monitors, keyboards -- it's a lot to take in, and it'll normally cost you a lot of money.

Razer Blade Stealth (2020) review: A tiny gaming laptop with a big price


Razer just can't quit video games. The Blade Stealth was its exit strategy--or so I thought. Released in 2016, the Stealth was Razer's debut Ultrabook, and brought the larger Blade's sleek, MacBook-like aesthetics and build quality to people who just check their email and type up memos, or whatever. There are three Razer Blade Stealth models for 2020. They differ only in terms of the display, not the internals.

What's the best gaming laptop to replace a MacBook Air for Minecraft?

The Guardian

My son has grown up using a MacBook Air for Minecraft. He swears by the keyboard layout, and having witnessed the blazing speed with which he does things in the game, I understand his reluctance to use his Alienware laptop. Both machines are almost six years old and due a refresh, so I'm looking for a Windows laptop that is powerful enough to run games like Civilization 6 (with mods) but with a keyboard layout that is sufficiently similar to a MacBook that he can continue to use the muscle memory he has built up over the years. Does such a beast exist? One alternative is to buy a MacBook Pro and use it to run Windows (either Bootcamp or Parallels), but the Windows performance strikes me as a compromise (for more money).
