What is the best laptop for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds?

In order to play PUBG on High or Max settings, your laptop needs to have at least the hardware mentioned in the recommended system requirements. Your laptop needs at least an Intel Core i5-6600K. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (or AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB) is the recommended video card models if you want to increase the view distance, texture details, and particles. The required RAM is 16 GB.

You will notice that all the laptops listed here have at least one system SSD drive. My opinion and big advice to you all: traditional HDDs are becoming obsolete. They are just slow and unreliable nowadays and can be served only as a second disk for larger storage space. Absolutely not for your system partition. Period.

1. Acer Predator Helios 300 – 2019 Model – RECOMMENDED

CPU: Intel Core i7-9750H  GRAPHICS: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB  |  SCREEN: 15.6″ FHD (1920 x 1080), IPS, 144Hz  |  RAM: 16GB DDR4  STORAGE: 256GB NVMe SSD (+ 1x Empty M.2 Slot, + 1x Empty 2.5″ SATA III Slot)

Acer Predator Helios 300 - 2019  offers a lot for its price. You can play most of the latest games around max settings without a problem as it has a powerful GTX 1660 Ti 6GB GPU. With extra storage slots you can easily upgrade for more disk space. It also has a screen refresh rate of 144Hz.

Price/performance
144 Hz display*

A 144Hz display* not only provides you with a more enjoyable and responsive overall gaming experience. But especially if you play competitive games, it is definitely recommended to have. You get an advantage over your opponents who have regular 60Hz displays.

Of course, a GPU must be able to maintain enough frames per second (more than 60 and up to 144) to make it a difference.

Here you can see the game running very smoothly on an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, even on Ultra Settings:
