If you are one of those fans hardcore Fortnite, surely you want to play it all the time and on all sides. If you’re traveling, you can use your phone, whether you’re at home, you can use your console. However, we cannot deny that a great option to enjoy it full-scale is through the laptop. Annually, we review more than 50 laptop computers, and the acclaimed Fortnite is part of our standards of measurement. Therefore, we have enough information to choose the best laptop for Fortnite, and these are the results.
The best laptop for Fortnite
Dell G7 15
The Dell G7 15 is the best laptop for Fortnite. It offers an excellent combination of performance, specifications and portability, all at a price that’s relatively affordable. We recommend specifically a model of specifications averages with the graphics card RTX 2060 Nvidia and the processor Core i7-9750H Intel. This will cost around $1,300.
The combination of a processor Core i7-9750H and RTX 2060 gives the Dell G7 15 the force required to play Fortnite at a resolution of 1080p and at least 60 frames per second (fps), with all the details of the graphics configured in Epic. In fact, our tests suggest that you should see an average of about 85 fps, although the game may fall below 60 fps during short periods of time during a intense action.
We do not recommend to spend more money for a screen 144Hz. It would be attractive, but consider that our tests detected that the frame rate of the game will average 80 fps with maximum detail. You can achieve 100 fps by sacrificing quality, but that will make the game less attractive.
The 8 GB of RAM available on the default settings will be sufficient, since that Fortnite doesn’t need a lot of RAM. Consider an upgrade to 16 GB of RAM if you plan on playing other titles or if you want your computer is ready for the next few years. The upgrade from 8GB to 16GB will cost you $100 dollars if you include in your initial purchase. However, you can also upgrade it later if you have the technical knowledge.
The reasons for recommending the G7 15 Dell go beyond the performance. It is a good laptop, versatile, with a suitable screen, a battery life is reasonable and a good keyboard. It is the best thing that you can get when buying a laptop for gaming for $1,300 dollars. All the teams make small commitments in favor of a high-performance. Unlike other laptops, the Dell G7 15 looks elegant and modern. It is suitable for students who not only need a laptop for games.
The best laptop economic for Fortnite
Acer Nitro 5
Do you need a more affordable option? We recommend the Acer Nitro 5. The best alternative is the model that comes with a processor Core i5-8300HQ, hard disk, solid, 256 GB and graphic card Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti. However, you can find other options with configurations slightly different prices, between $600 and $900. Just make sure that you have the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti.
The price of the Acer Nitro 5 is its key feature. The older models sell for less than $700, while the most recent can get to $750 dollars in most retail stores. With this you get a laptop that although not as attractive in terms of design, does the job.
Of course, performance is what matters most. The Acer Nitro 5 not can average 60 fps at a resolution of 1080p and in settings Epic, but can get to that point if you raise it to High. Processors of series Intel Core i5 HQ available on the Acer Nitro 5 are more than sufficient. You’ll have to settle with 8 GB of RAM, but that is enough for Fortnite.
Considers that you are making enough sacrifices to reduce the budget to $750. The Acer Nitro 5 has a suitable display, a chassis thickness and a battery with a duration modest. It seems as cheap as it is. You will not have an impressive LED lighting or a large hard disk. In fact, the hard disk is the weakest point, since some models have only a SSD of 256 GB, while others come with a mechanical drive of more capacity. A SSD of 256 GB is sufficient for Fortnite, but not be able to add more than a handful of modern games from AAA status.
In the end it all boils down to the performance for the price, and that is where it shines the Acer Nitro 5. Fortnite is still a blast to play, and not lose many visual details, even in comparison with the Dell G7 15, our best laptop for Fortnite.
The best laptop level God for Fortnite
Razer Blade 15
If you have money to spend and want that Fortnite will look better, the Razer Blade 15 is your alternative. The consisderamos the best laptop for games. Though it could probably be an overkill if you just want to Fortnite, will offer a gaming experience absolutely amazing.
You can buy the Razer Blade 15 basic with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 for barely more than the Dell G7 15. It costs more and will not work as well. It is better to choose the advanced model with the Nvidia RTX 2080 Max-Q. This will provide you with a frame rate average of about 130 fps with details set out in Epic, or 163 fps if you redial the details on High.
A frame rate so high it is enough to use the high refresh frequency of the display standard 144Hz at 1080p. The game will be soft and your movements will be translated in a rapid response on the screen.
Razer also offers a display of 240Hz at 1080p, or a touch OLED 4K, both linked to an upgrade of the processor Intel Core ninth-generation. We do not recommend these updates, because you will need to restrict the details of the game to use all the functions. The screen is 144Hz at 1080p is adequate and less expensive.
However, there is much more on the Razer Blade 15 that the performance. It is our first choice among all the laptops for games because it offers a framework incredibly attractive and elegant, a keyboard, wonderful, a touchpad, roomy and a good length of the battery. Is a laptop on which you can play Fortnite at Epic for the night and then drive the boring productivity during the day. Developers, video editors and other professionals of the technology, they love the Blade 15 as much as the gamers. It is the equivalent of Windows on a MacBook Pro 15.
