Best Gaming Laptop Under $800

Dell Inspiron i5577With its Intel i7-7700HQ processor and 8GB of RAM backing an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, you will be get respectable gaming performance out of the Dell Inspiron i5577-7359BLK-PUS for its relatively modest price. On top of this, Dell have thrown in a 128GB SSD alongside a larger (but slower) 1TB HDD for storage purposes. Naturally, some drawbacks are to be expected with a price so low; the TN display is a bummer, as it does make the colors seem a bit washed depending on the angle from which you view the screen. It is fair to say that the 15.6-inch, 1920×1080 matte display is okay at best. The laptop has an attractive black case with red accents which makes the design pleasing overall, but some have noted that it feels quite flimsy, especially around the hinges. Most have found that the battery life lasts around 4 hours 30 minutes, which is alright for a normal notebook and on the longer side for many gaming laptops. Thanks to its powerful hardware, the Dell Inspiron i5577-7359BLK-PUS is also suitable for power users looking for an all-round workstation and will easily run software such as Adobe Creative Suite as well as most basic day to tasks with ease.
