Do you want to know the best laptops to play Fallout 4 on? Then you are in luck, as below we have listed the three best laptops that will be able to handle this game with ease, while still being portable enough to take anywhere you go. Let’s get started!
You’re best off not buying a laptop specifically for playing games. But if you already have a Chromebook, it’s great for running games in your browser like Civilization Online or Bastion. Plus they’re small and light—perfect for carrying around on long trips. Most Chromebooks are less than $350. (Try an Acer C720.) If you do buy one, be sure to pair it with a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard. And don’t expect high-end gaming performance from any of these machines; most Chromebooks can handle older titles like Fallout 3 but will struggle with newer ones like Borderlands 2. If all you want is something that can play simple stuff, though, there are worse options out there.
MacBook Pro 15
The Macbook Pro 15 is great for gamers. With its powerful i7 processor and 16GB of RAM, there are very few PC games that it can’t handle at a decent frame rate. And with Apple’s history of making stylish laptops, it will be sure to draw attention at your next LAN party. Not a fan of Apple products? No problem – check out our other suggestions below!
Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition VN7-591G-78R9
Acer’s Aspire V15 Nitro is a 15.6-inch gaming laptop that comes with a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor, 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, and 256 GB SSD. Its display has a full HD resolution and its graphics card is Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M with 2 GB of VRAM. In addition, it features Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0+HS, an SDXC card reader and two USB 3.0 ports (one on each side). It also features HD Webcam, backlit keyboard and large speakers for maximum entertainment experience during play time for as little as $1,149 (or even less when you buy used).
MSI GE62 Apache Pro-003
This 15.6-inch gaming laptop packs a hexacore Intel Core i7 processor and a hefty NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M graphics card into a slim 0.9-inch chassis, resulting in top-tier performance. Its 4K display means you can check out Fallout’s new console-like graphics at their best. This machine is VR ready and will play Fallout like a dream (for those of us who are diehard PC players). If you’re not planning on doing VR right now though, I’d recommend sticking with 1080p as it makes everything run even smoother than before.
Gigabyte P35X v3
Gigabyte’s P35X v3 is a 15.6-inch gaming laptop that starts at $1,200. That’s pricey, but it’s powerful—the starting version comes with an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor and a GeForce GTX 980M graphics card. You can also get up to 32GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage in addition to 1TB SSHD hybrid drive with which our review unit came equipped. Gigabyte says it should last you through 5 hours of gaming on one charge.
ASUS ROG G752VS OC Edition
With its 6th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 256GB solid-state drive, it’s one of the most powerful laptops in our roundup. But you don’t have to sacrifice portability with a weight of 7 pounds and 17.9mm thick — although it is a large laptop compared with something like an Apple MacBook Pro 15. Retailing for $2,500, we’d expect nothing less than powerful specs here. And though there are more portable gaming rigs out there (e.g., Razer Blade or MSI GS63VR Stealth Pro), it isn’t always about how small you can make things.
