With XCOM 2 just around the corner, most PC gamers are making sure that they meet the system requirements to run this amazing game, but you might want to actually be able to play it (as well as other current generation games) on your laptop. We’ve already shared a list of the best cheap gaming laptops for 2016, but they might not have enough power to run the game – at least not decently. But if you still want to play it without completely blowing your budget, I am here to recommend a few great gaming laptops.
So let’s not waste any time and let’s check out which are the best laptops to play XCOM 2! We’ll start by listing below the minimum system requirements, because everything that’s better than this will be considered a good call:
OS: Windows 7, 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 2.6 GHz or AMD Phenom 9950 Quad Core 2.6 GHz
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5770, 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or better
DirectX: Version 11
Storage: 45 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX compatible sound card
So fortunately, the minimum requirements are not that bad and we’re able to find some good laptops at decent prices. Here are my suggestions of laptops for XCOM 2:
1Budget entry: Dell Inspiron i7559
If you’re on a budget, you can still experience XCOM 2 and get decent performance for a low price (even though you won’t get all the bells and whistles, you’ll still be able to experience the game nicely, as well as other current generation titles). The Intel Quad Core i5-6300HQ is well above the minimum requirements, as well as the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card which is actually a really good card for gaming. You have a 1TB HDD as well, with the only potential problem being that this model has no optical drive. However, since you’ll be getting the game on Steam (just like all other games), I don’t think this should be considered a big problem, if we consider the price and the great deal you’re getting for it.
