    "I recently tested the Lenovo Ideapad 700 at my friend's house. It is a decent, affordable laptop. However, I don't think it would be great for gaming. I would love to find an affordable gaming laptop, but I don't think this is the one I want."

    "I was disappointed with the Dell Inspiron B071L8GN9G. I was hoping for an affordable laptop I could use for gaming, however, the display provides poor resolution. I also realized after purchasing this laptop that it only has onboard graphics and not a dedicated graphics card, which limits the number of games this laptop can handle."

    "After frying my old laptop by spilling water on it I got his due to the low cost. For the price it's OK. Not great though. If you are a heavy gamer you'll want to stay away from this. For my use it's acceptable."

    "At first glance the Huawei Matebook D looked like a decent budget gaming laptop. However, mine died after four months of use and it was extremely laggy. I wouldn't not recommend for the serious gamer."

    "I was in the market for a new affordable gaming laptop and someone recommended the Acer Spire E5-575G-562T. After much research I chose to buy it. I have to say that I am very disappointed with my purchase. This laptop is slower than my old one and I have a difficult time connecting to wifi. I have actually decided to return the laptop for a refund. I cannot recommend this solution."

    "As gaming laptops go, the graphics is sufficiently high, although generally a dedicated graphics card is better, additionally, a faster processor would be preferable. This system would likely balk at high end games and 256GB is not much storage for gaming since most high end games tend to range into the 3GB++ end (it is easy to have over 20++ GB for Skyrim alone). This would make a good laptop, just not what I would really call a gaming laptop."

    "This is a tough category to evaluation for me. Affordable and gaming really don't go together in my world. The competition is fierce. This machine is decent, but I can't call it best. The consistent quality control just doesn't seem to be there given the customer reviews I've seen."
