The HP Victus 15 is included in our list of the best gaming laptops under $1,000 because it’s affordable and can be scaled up with more powerful components.
The base model we reviewed has the lowest price on Best Buy, dropping to just $479.99. This is an exceptional price for these specifications.
Not high end spec. This model has an Intel Core i5-1450H and his Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650, which is fine for older games, but newer games may require lower settings. For that price you would expect 8GB of RAM (which you might need to upgrade later), but 512GB is never given, so it’s nice to see it here.
“Despite having an older GTX 1650 GPU, it can handle most modern titles in 1080p on high or medium settings, although you may need to turn it down to low in some cases,” the review states. I am writing to
In our review, we liked the price and performance (including productivity performance). However, it requires uninstalling some bloatware. This configuration boasts a 1080p, 144 Hz display and a discreet design for gaming sessions at home or on the go.
In general, very It’s rare to find a gaming laptop of this type for under $500. It’s hard to find a laptop with discrete graphics for that price. Sure, it’s not the latest and greatest, but for that price, you might not mind playing the game on Medium instead of Ultra.
