AND THE BEST BUD­GET GAM­ING NOTE­BOOK IS…

GI­GA­BYTE SABRE 15

The Sabre 15 of­fers a ju­di­cious blend of com­pet­i­tive speci cations and af­ford­abil­ity. At $1,799, it is the se­cond cheap­est note­book in this shootout, but it of­fers 16GB of RAM, the only other note­book here to do so other than the $2,298 Acer As­pire VX 15. The ad­di­tional mem­ory will come in handy for heavy multi-task­ing, but the Sabre 15 also rises to the top of the pack in terms of gam­ing per­for­mance. It is a small lead, but any ad­van­tage is dif­fi­cult to pass up, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing that it is also cheaper than most of the other note­books (with the ex­cep­tion of the After­shock MX-15 Elite). Then there’s its strong bat­tery life rel­a­tive to its com­peti­tors, which only fur­ther ce­ments its lead at the top of the pack. To cap things off, the Sabre 15 also of­fers cus­tom­iz­a­ble three-zone RGB back­light­ing and a de­cent screen, which is more than can be said for many of the other note­books. �
