Gaming Notebook Guide: This is very easy to clarify: every notebook that can handle modern games is also more than good enough for normal office and home office activities. Only in special cases do you have to pay attention to more special things that the notebook offers regardless of gaming capabilities. Dell G7 series

A memory of more than 16 gigabytes is desirable for photo and video editing, and a good CPU with many threads often brings a greater advantage here than in games. Some users may need a lot of hard disk space. And still, others could easily get along with a 400 euro notebook, provided they would not insist on gaming suitability.
Especially when the budget is limited, you have to make compromises if you also need special features for your office needs. There are simple things to do, such as certain connection options. But other things can become more expensive,
Example, memory: The currently cheapest available branded notebook with 32GB RAM costs 1200 euros and only has an Nvidia MX250 as a GPU, which is not suitable for modern games. 32GB RAM is very rare to find in general with the well-known brand manufacturers – but in many cases, you can also retrofit yourself, or you look for manufacturers with self-distribution, where it also models with 32GB and a graphics card such as the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti there are about 1200 euros – we will mention such manufacturers later in the market overview.
Does it have to be a gaming notebook?
In the end, you should carefully consider whether you really need a notebook and, if so, whether it should also be gaming-capable. A calculation example: A notebook with a decent processor, 16GB RAM, an SSD, and a good graphics card like the GeForce RTX 2070 costs at least 1600 euros. A PC with the powerful Ryzen 5 3600, 16GB RAM, a 1TB SSD, and an RTX 2060 Super or AMD RX 5700 XT (which is faster than a mobile RXT 2070) only costs you around 1000 euros, with the handle of a cheap mainboard, Case and power supply even less.

The area where a GTX 1650 is offered almost starts at 600 euros. If you already have a desktop PC, an upgrade is often sufficient. In the end, there is so much money left over from the (assumed in the example) 1600 euros that a model with an entry-level graphics card remains affordable as a notebook, with which modern games run well, at least at lower levels of detail.
Conclusion: you should think carefully and, if in doubt, calculate whether you need a notebook and, if the answer is “yes”, really ask for gaming power or not put the money into your desktop PC. If you have the choice and still buy a gaming notebook, you must be aware that it is more of a luxury in this case.
