The Victus is HP’s budget friendly gaming laptop line, but today Best Buy has the best deal on the laptop. This 15.6-inch model comes with a 12th-Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and an Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics card. It’s not a powerhouse gaming laptop, but it’s a great place to start if you’re just getting into the hobby. The screen is great for everything under 4K gaming, since it runs 1080p resolution and has a high refresh rate of 144Hz.

Lenovo LOQ 15 — $680, was $950

The Dell G16 ha taken over from the G15 as Dell’s premier gaming laptop. That one inch of extra space can really made a difference, letting you see quite a bit more of the games you’re playing. It also lets Dell make the keyboard that much bigger. This configuration comes with the 12th-Gen Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU, and 16GB of RAM, which is what our guide to how much RAM you need recommends.

Just as Dell has their G15 and G16, HP has their Victus 15 and Victus 16. The main upgrade is the screen size, but that provides a lot of other benefits too.
