In fifth place we have the Asus ROG Zephyrus GX701, a laptop that combines a slim design with the great power of the new Nvidia RTX graphics card. This computer has a 17-inch screen, includes Intel i7 series processors, and starts at $ 3,299.

What the editorial team liked the most was that despite being so thin, it already includes the new generation of Nvidia RTX cards. To that we must add its intelligent volume scroll wheel and the new RGB keyboard lighting.

On the negative side we have that the touch panel on the right side has not been the smartest option and can be uncomfortable, and also when you have been playing for a while, the system heats up and the fans are somewhat noisy.

Also, you should know that graphics improvements come at the cost of a reduced battery and a less ergonomic computer.

In fourth place we have the 2018 Origin PC Eon-17X, which is essentially a desktop computer, which managed to get into the body of a laptop. It’s kind of huge and heavy, but it does the most important job: It gives you all the performance you need for a gaming computer.

In our tests this computer produced the best results. It includes an Nvidia GeForce 1080 GPU graphics card, which is among the best on the market in the last year, and its power is enough to even play titles in virtual reality.

The computer has a 17.3-inch screen, it has different versions with all the components you need to play and the performance of its panel is ideal. However, on the negative side we have that it is huge and very expensive, with a price that can exceed US $ 3,500 if you choose one of the most advanced configurations.

In the third position we have the Acer Predator Triton 900. This is a different laptop because the screen can adopt different positions and something that may be ideal is that the panel is also touchscreen. Editorial experts say the multi-angle factor is the best thing about this laptop.

This computer weighs just over a kilo, and although its screen is the star, WAB News experts have found it to be somewhat bright. The keyboard shrinks a bit to incorporate a right-side touchpad, which also converts to a numeric keypad, and while the keys feel good, the keyboard itself is narrow.

The graphics on this computer are powered by an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 card that responded positively to our tests. Of course, it is good that you know that the keyboard and the battery are the details that obtained the worst rating on this device.

Incidentally, its price is somewhat expensive and not very competitive, because it is worth about $ 3,600, according to the chosen specifications.

In the second position we have the newest version of the Origin PC Eon-17X computer. If we mentioned last year’s before, Origin has repeated its good work with that of 2019.

What the newsroom liked the most was the large number of ports included in this computer, an excellent 144 Hertz per second Full HD screen, its excellent RGB keyboard and the fingerprint sensor built into it. In addition, the company offers a high level of support that you don’t usually get when you buy a laptop.

This computer has a Nvida GeForce RTX 2080 8GB graphics card, and although it comes with different configurations, its screen only comes in a size of 17.3 inches. Its initial price is US $ 2,400 although with the best configuration it can go up to US $ 4,000.

On the negative side: its design is somewhat conventional, and its ventilation system is too noisy.

In the first position we have one of the most popular computers of the last year. And it is that Dell has remained solid with the design and development of its Alienware franchise. The Alienware Area-51m is one of the computers with the most complete performance in the last year of those analyzed by WAB News.

With a weight of more than three kilos, it is one of the heaviest, but that will not matter so much if what you are interested in is that it has the best image processing when playing, doing 3D modeling or editing videos. The team liked the ability to access the inside of the computer to replace the processor and graphics card. Of course, you will not have to do it as soon as you buy it, because this laptop includes an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 card.

What the team liked the most was the level of processing of the computer in its different configurations, the possibility of accessing its parts and a design that feels totally modern.

Of course, this computer is not perfect, because it does not come with a 4K screen option, and each configuration option comes with a price increase that could be somewhat irrational.

However, WAB News considers this high-end laptops to offer the best performance of the past year, and the promise of being able to upgrade it in the future is a great opportunity to spend less when the time comes to require more power and better graphics.
