The 5 Best Laptops For The Crew 2: (Top laptops between $600 – $1,500)

The wait is finally over and we got a worthy successor for The Crew. Together for Forza Horizon, TC has become the go to game for casual racing. The Crew 2 is back in town to show that it’s the OG in its niche and that Need For Speed Payback can’t touch it.

These days many new games require brand hardware to run them properly. But it seems Ivory Tower did a fine job optimizing the game so The Crew 2 will reach high framerates on a upper mid-range laptop. But the minimum requirements are rather high and that can be a big problem especially if you’re looking for a laptop to play TC2. Entry level laptop just won’t cut it.

And who’s better at showing its potential than Epic Games themselves. It seems they looked at PUBG and decided they can do it better.

Even though the game is free, it requires a fairly up-to-date machine. That’s even more true for laptops that have lagged miles behind desktop PCs.

Top 6 Best Laptops for PUBG (+ Spreadsheet)

PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds notebookPlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is one of the games that will make you upgrade your PC. When I first started playing PUBG during early access, I still had a 5-year-old laptop that did not match well with PUBG. I could barely reach 25 FPS. I just couldn’t take it.

All of them have at least 970M or GTX 1050, 1080p, 8 GB RAM, high-performance processor (more on that below) and a Solid State Drive. Then I boiled it all down to top 6 laptops.
