As the year 2019 comes to a close and you want to start off 2020 right, you’d be spoilt for choice in laptops to match your needs this year alone. Luckily for you, we have compiled for you a shortlist of three laptops in their respective categories! They all carry NVIDIA’s technology, thanks to how flexible and powerful they are.
BEST VALUE: NVIDIA Gaming Laptop ASUS TUF Gaming FX505D-TBQ222T
We reviewed a higher-end model of the TUF Gaming series, but the basic concept is the same: this series is for those of you looking for a gaming laptop on a budget. With various models of the same series, you can opt for whichever you’re most comfortable with. The TBQ-222T is one of the cheaper models powered on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB , but don’t look down on it just because it’s lower-end. It’s still a gaming laptop, and it’ll be capable of running some of the biggest game titles out there, albeit on lower graphic settings.
+ Good for budget gaming on the go
+ Relatively light at 2.2~2.3kg
+ SSD allows things to load fast
– Can run demanding games at the cost of lower graphical fidelity
– Battery won’t last long

BEST LAPTOP FOR DESIGNERS: NVIDIA RTX STUDIO LAPTOP MSI CREATOR
A gamer and creatively inclined? Why not consider the MSI Creator P65-9SE model, with its NVIDIA RTX2060 6GB? It’s lightweight at 1.9kg standalone, and is powerful to boot! Expect this baby to juggle your multitasking without issue, be it for video editing, 3D animation, photography or graphic design! When you’re ready to get off the clock, shift gears and the MSI Creator P65-9SE will let you play your games too! All this while being compact, at 17.9mm thick, on top of up to 8 hours of battery life (depending on usage). Take advantage of the Creator Center packed in! While you work or game, you don’t need to worry about the laptop heating up with MSI’s Cooler Boost Trinity+ Technology, featuring 3 dedicated fans and 6 heat pipes.
Don’t let the repetitive tasks of content creation slow you down. Don’t think “just” a laptop can’t be capable of ray tracing or processing RED RAW material. This baby’s RTX Studio badge ensures creatives can readily identify the powerful hardware needed to meet their demands.
+ Powerful enough for both content creation and gaming
+ Light and compact
– Not dedicated gaming laptop
– Pricey especially if you’re not looking for the design aspect
