Gaming laptops for Fallout

Fallout 4 has been out for a while (2015) and it has already all the characteristics to become one of the most played and mythic games of all time.

The game has been released for PC (Windows), Playstation 4 and also Xbox One. Consoles have advantages in regards of how the game will run and how the hardware is specifically build to run games. However, a great part of players end up using their PCs to play Fallout 4 and other games, due to practicality or personal preferences.

Many of those use laptops to play, because laptops are portable, and you can take them anywhere you want to play, work, talk to whoever you need to talk to. In other words, buying a laptop turns out to be always the most logical purchase in my opinion.

The laptop computer’s versatility is very positive as mentioned above, but since laptops are built for so many different purposes, you can always find yourself having problems to install or run games decently on laptops. Therefore, we will analyze system requirements to play Fallout 4 and we will select some laptops that should up to these rather specific needs.

Most Skylake and Kaby Lake quad core processors are able to run Fallout 4 decently and with high FPS. However, make sure the RAM and also video card requirements are also sufficient.

    Noticed how 4 of the 6 laptops listed here don’t even meet the minimum required processor speed of 2.8GHz. Is that not actually important for a good gaming experience?

      It depends on how advanced the processor is, not only on its clockspeed. For example the i5-2300 which has a clockspeed of 2.8 Ghz was released in 2011, while the i5-6300HQ was released in 2015, and even if its clockspeed is jus 2.3Ghz, it has a higher benchmark than the i5-2300. The i5-2300 benchmark is 5200, i5-6300HQ benchmark is 5700.
