5 Most Affordable Laptops for PUBG




PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds or PUBG is one of the most successful games out in the market today. It’s so successful that a lot of other game developers tried to mimic its fame by making their own battle royale titles. Of course, it’s no easy game to run as it has quite high graphical requirements.

That’s not to say that budget setups can’t run it. You would, however, have to say goodbye to lush details, beautiful sceneries, and smooth gameplay if you wish to play the game on less powerful hardware. Either way, at least you’ll be able to enjoy acceptable framerates. So, if you’re the type of traveling gamer who has no choice but to get a laptop, then here are 5 most affordable laptops for PUBG.

As a last note, do upgrade your RAM to at least 8GB and again do not expect to be able to play the game smoothly with these systems. You will, at one point or the other, encounter lag and slowdowns. This options will only allow you to be able to at least play the game in some form. Then again, we do suggest to up your budget to at least reach the price range of Nvidia’s GTX 1060 if you plan on running PUBG smoothly.

There you have it! While some of these laptops might not be considered budget at all, do take note that PUBG is a very demanding game. Once again, some more powerful laptops might reach these price points when there are sales, so keep your eyes open.
