Thin and Light Gaming Laptops
MSI GS65 Stealth
The MSI GS65 Stealth has impressed and surprised me as I’ve always been biased with Asus and Dell for my laptops. The GS65 is MSI’s most popular model, I have been on the lookout for a thin and light gaming laptop but still packs a punch. I had the pleasure of testing the GS65 Stealth-478 model sporting an Intel Core i7-9750H with Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060. Wow talk about specs. I also like the Matte Black finish and the Gold trims make this laptop not just a powerful gaming machine but also looks elegant and premium.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S
I recently made a review on the Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701, and the first time I saw this laptop, I wanted one. Reason being is that I love the Republic of Gamer slogan, I also love the ROG logo. I don’t go for the over-the-top RGB lighting that most gaming laptops have but I do like the edgy gamer feels that this machine exudes. This piece of gaming machine perfection comes with an Intel Core i7-9750H and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, along with its magnesium body and a brushed aluminum finish. This beast is the 17in variant but is the thin and light version among the ROG line.

Gigabyte AERO 15
Initial impression on the Gigabyte AERO 15 is the looks, Man I love the the color scheme the orange and green are a refreshing twist to the “RGB” gimmick that most gaming laptop has, like most sports cars the flashier the design and color you can expect that you are paying a premium price for a premium look and feel but also performance. This pretty thin and light machine comes with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GDDR5 6GB, I must say that with all the gaming machines in this post this is probably the lowest spec’ed laptop but you can still play triple AAA titles at mid to high settings because let’s face it, who plays at Ultra settings all the time. Honestly, I play at mid – high settings especially when I need the performance (on ranked games). Plus lowering the display lets you pump up more juice for longer playing sessions.

Razer Blade Stealth 13
Dubbed as The World’s First Gaming Ultrabook the Razer Blade Stealth 13 is the most recognizable gaming brand, with it’s sleek all black design none of that flashy RGB lighting. Just a simple looking gaming machine with the Razer logo and I love it. The new Razer Blade Stealth looks has been recently updated to a more minimalistic look. Don’t let this simplicity fool you this machine hides an Intel Core i7-1165G7 and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 TI Max-Q. Perfect for business meetings for the grown up gamer.

Dell XPS 15
With an Intel Core i7-10750H and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 TI 4GB, the Dell XPS 15 is still one of the best Ultrabooks in the market but this machine can still game with the rest of them. Dell has the G15 and their Alienware brands, but the XPS lineup is not really designed for gaming but you can be sure that machine can.

The big brother of the Razer Blade 13, the Razer Blade 15, comes in 3 levels (2 tiers per level) each surprisingly powerful the previous levels. The Base model, the Advanced and the Studio model.
