Medion Erazer P6681 gaming laptop | £479.97 at Box
With 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive and GTX 1050 graphics, this packs a decent punch for the money. That being said, we'd be tempted to spend a bit more to get a quad-core processor instead of dual-core and the build quality and chunky bezels on these cheaper Medion models give it a bit of a cheap feel too.

Medion Erazer P6689 15.6-inch Core i5 GTX1050 gaming laptop £799.99 £549.98 at ebuyer
This is a very good deal for a decent budget gaming laptop. While the GTX 1050 isn't the most modern or powerful of graphics cards, it'll handle most games at good graphical settings. It also features an 8th generation quad-core Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM.View Deal

Asus K570ZD-E4069T gaming laptop | £589.97 at Box
Save £161 today. With a GTX 1050 graphics card, it'll have a fair crack at pretty much any game you can throw at it on moderate settings. While we love the 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD, it's a shame there's no regular storage included. You don't have to spend much more to get a gaming laptop that does though.

Acer Nitro 5 Ryzen 5 AMD RX 560X | £729 £639 at Currys
This version of the Acer Nitro 5 features AMD hardware, so you get a Ryzen 5 2500U processor and an AMD Radeon RX 560X 4GB graphics card, along with a 1TB hard drive and 128GB SSD. This is a great price for a solid performer.

Asus TUF FX505 | £799 £699 at Amazon
If the discount didn't catch your eye, those slim bezels around the Full HD 15.6-inch 120Hz screen probably did. There's more spec worth shouting about too with an AMD Ryzen quad core processor, 8GB of RAM and a sweet pairing of 128GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. As for dedicated graphics, you can enjoy the RX560 card.

The best cheap gaming laptops of 2019

Dell G3 15

Dell G3 15

Excellent value for money

CPU: Intel Core i5 – i7 (8th-generation) | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 – GTX 1060 (4GB GDDR5) | RAM: 8GB – 16GB | Screen: 15.6-inch FHD (1920x1080) | Storage: 128/256GB SSD

Fantastic performance for the money
Most models come with a 256GB SSD.
Build is a tad flimsy

The Dell G3 15 line of gaming laptops is one of our favourite options and numerous configurations are often available for well under £1000. While initially coming with a 1TB hard drive, we're generally seeing them come with a 256GB SSD instead nowadays for superior performance. Naturally, you can get a mix of both for more money at some retailers. With a GTX 1050 graphics card on-board as standard, this will have no problem running most modern games at relatively high settings too.

Acer Nitro 5

Acer Nitro 5

A decent pick for new gaming laptop buyers on a budget

CPU: Intel Core i5 – i7 (8th-generation); AMD Ryzen 5 2500U | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 – 1050 Ti (4GB GDDR5); AMD Radeon RX 560X | RAM: 4GB – 16GB | Screen: 15.6-inch FHD (1920x1080) | Storage: 256GB SSD or 1TB HDD (5400 rpm) – 128/256GB SSD + 1TB HDD

Adjust fans for your needs
Decent battery life
No SSD on cheapest models

As one of the cheapest gaming laptops that will still run games at decent settings, the Acer Nitro 5 is well worth a look if you're wanting to get into PC gaming and play modern games too (just don't expect to be running Battlefield V on ultra settings ok?). The design is a bit plasticy and there's no SSD on the cheapest models, but given the low price and the power of the internal spec inside we're more than willing to look past that to get our gaming fix on the go.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming

The best you can get for under a grand?

CPU: Intel i7 (7th-generation) | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (4GB GDDR5) | RAM: 8GB – 32GB | Screen: 15.6-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS | Storage: 256GB SSD

Solid graphics performance
Extensive RAM options
Really pushes that budget

Dell's Inspiron laptops have always had wide-ranging appeal and these versions are specifically reworked for gamers. We're taking you right to the limit of the £1000 budget here, but it's always worth keeping an eye out on our price comparison below, as we often see a retailer go rogue and knock a few hundred quid off the price around sales season. If you can afford the price, you'll find some of the best performance you can get for a gaming laptop under £1000. The 16GB of RAM drives up the price as does the SSD/HDD combo and GTX 1050 Ti graphics card as standard.
