Best gaming notebook to buy

The highlight of every gaming notebook With the advancement of technology, it was possible to count on really compact products that have a formidable performance, which has considerably leveraged the market for notebooks aimed at the gamer audience or that work with video and image editing/rendering.

Due to this, it is now possible to find models capable of performing tasks previously considered unthinkable in this type of device at a not-so-abusive price, making even those who do not need so much power end up considering a notebook a little more complete to be able to use it for several years without any kind of problem.

With that in mind, we decided to create a new shopping guide, this time focusing on some notebooks capable of satisfying even the most demanding users, with price ranges that fit the most varied budgets. If the models on this list are “a little too much” for you, just look for our guides aimed at more basic users who want a new notebook.

As we always do, it is necessary to highlight that only model sold officially and through major Brazilian retailers were included, thus excluding those found only on import portals or sites such as Mercado Livre.


There are few options for gaming notebooks in Brazil with an AMD processor. If you are looking for one with a good configuration and want to avoid Intel hardware, we recommend the ASUS M570DD-DM122T. It has an AMD Ryzen 5 3500U processor and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card.

Other configurations include 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 1TB of HD storage. Its 15.6-inch screen has Full HD resolution and its keyboard is backlit and in the ABNT 2 standard, different from Dell’s gamer line that brings the American standard. Overall, it’s a good machine at just 21.9 mm thick and 1.9 kg, which tries to combine good firepower.

Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i

Lenovo has recently renewed its line of gaming notebooks with new models with updated hardware from Intel. In this case, we have the Core i5-10300H, which is the ninth generation and guarantees high performance for any task, while there are still many notebooks in this price range coming with older hardware.

The graphics part is on account of the GeForce GTX 1650, which may not be the current generation, but it still has plenty of breath to run many current games. The Ideapad Gaming 3i comes with 8GB of DDR4 RAM and a 256GB SSD. The battery supports fast charging and the keyboard is Brazilian standard, unlike recent Dell releases.

Acer Nitro 5

Acer has been constantly updating its Aspire Nitro 5 notebook, which can be found in versions with an Intel Core i5-10300H or AMD Ryzen 5-4600H, GeForce GTX 1650 with 4GB of memory and a 512GB SSD. Closing the package is a 15.6-inch screen with Full HD resolution and 8GB or 16GB of RAM.

While most gaming notebooks come with Windows 10, this Acer model bets on Endless OS, a Linux distribution. This allows you to charge less for the notebook, as the operating system is free. Of course, not every game is Linux-compatible, so it’s good to keep that in mind if you’re interested in Nitro 5.

Samsung Odyssey

Samsung is also another brand that bets on gaming notebooks in Brazil. The NP850XBD-XG1BR model is the latest generation of the Odyssey available in our market and features the 9th generation Intel Core i5-9300H processor with 8 GB of DDR4 RAM. The storage is still a traditional 1 TB HDD, but it comes with 2 free M.2 PCIe NVMe slots for you to upgrade.

On the graphics side, it comes with a dedicated 4GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 GPU and a 15.6-inch screen with Full HD resolution with PLS technology. Just like the ASUS model, here we also have a national standard keyboard with red lighting. This new generation features an all-metal finish that is 1.99 cm thick and weighs 2.4 kg.

The Acer Predator Helios 300

If you are looking for a more powerful graphics card than the last generation GTX 1050 or the new generation GTX 1650, you can enjoy the recently updated Acer Helio 300. The old one brought the GTX 1060, one of the most powerful found on the national market. Now we have the RTX3060, which is the most advanced GPU currently available from NVIDIA and delivers the best experience in games and other tasks.

The rest of the hardware is quite competent and includes an 11th generation Intel processor (I7 11800H), 16 GB of RAM, 1 TB of SSD in an M.2 slot, and a 15.6-inch screen with Full HD resolution at 144 Hz. The old Helios 300 was already a respectable machine, and the new one is not far behind.

Dell G3 350-A40P

Want a more powerful graphics card? This version of the Dell G3 features the RTX 2060 in a great configuration. You can find this Dell notebook in several configuration options in Brazil, but here we have a complete and well-balanced one that bets on a strong Intel processor (the Core i7-10750H) with a generous amount of SSD.

For the memory configuration, there is 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. The screen has Full HD resolution, as is mandatory in any respectable notebook.

Lenovo Legion 5i

The Legion 5i is Lenovo’s latest gaming notebook option to hit the domestic market. It comes equipped with a 10th generation Core i7 processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 128GB SSD, and a 1TB HDD. However, in order to not suffer from high temperatures, Lenovo has the best cooling system in the segment, Coldfront.

Its 15.6-inch screen has Full HD resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. The video card is the RTX 2060 with 6 GB of dedicated RAM. As seen, it is a great configuration to run any current game without stuttering and still take advantage of recent games with Ray Tracing support.

2 AM E550

To close the list, we have the 2 AM E550, a notebook from the brand focused on the gamer audience from Positivo that stands out for bringing a desktop processor to the body of a notebook, something that results in a greater performance delivered to the user.

With options that include the Intel Core i3-9100, i5-9400, or i7-9700 processor, the 2 AM E550 also has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU, 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, and storage that can be SSD-only or hybrid, including an HDD to provide more space for installing games and programs.
