Best gaming laptop for R14k - R16k

Post by will i am »

Hello, I’m looking to buy an affordable gaming laptop for about R15 000. I would like to do some light gaming on it and also possibly have the option to connect it to my 50 inch HD screen, I know running such a large screen could be taxing for the GPU especially on gaming but I would like to have the option especially for movies.

Does anyone have any suggestions of any laptops I can look into; the ones I’ve been looking at are the following. Any other suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated
