In this article I’m going to go tell you what I think is the best laptop for Overwatch. Blizzard’s Overwatch is one of the best team-based first person shooters released to date. Blizzard are the same company that created Starcraft, Diablo and World Of Warcraft. Overwatch was released in 2016 and it attracts more than 40 million monthly players! I’m running Overwatch on PC but I am currently in the market for a laptop so I’ve done alot of research. I have managed to get the shortlist down to two laptops.
Let’s take a look at the recommended system requirements for Overwatch first.
Overwatch Recommended Requirements
Intel Core i5 or AMD Phenom II X3, 2.8 GHz
Windows Vista/7/ 8/10 64-bit (latest Service Pack)
Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or ATI Radeon HD 7950
FREE DISK SPACE
DEDICATED VIDEO RAM
The Best Laptop for Playing Overwatch
The best laptop for playing Overwatch would definitely be one of the beastly HP Omen Laptops. Just check their Homepage!
If you go for the HP Omen it’d probably set you back at least £1,000 with the top of the range model tipping the scales at around £1800. The specs in this laptop are insane. Let’s take a look.
Something a little more discreet
Now the HP Omen is overkill for most people. For something a little more discreet I’d recommend the latest Razer Blade Stealth. It’s described as the ultra portable gaming laptop and will happily run Overwatch at medium / high settings. A lot of people also use the Razer blade stealth not just for gaming but for software development. It has great reviews, the display has been described as buttery smooth on more than one comment I’ve read.
Not for you
If a laptop isn’t for you. I’ve written an extensive article on setting up a development workstation that is capable of running all AAA rated gaming titles. You should check it out.
