null Do esports games need sequels? I mean, if Epic Games would release Fortnite 2, that would split the current player base. And after all, people seem to be satisfied with Fornite the way it is (more or less). So, are we stuck with the current Fortnite forever? I guess not – Epic’s developers are continuously adding new features and experiences. That was one reason why Fortnite outcompeted PUBG, which infamously was stuck in a perpetual bug-fixing cycle. At one point, I couldn’t even play it on my laptop due to the shear lag. That’s where Fortnite stepped in – leave it to the Unreal Engine’s creators to show us how it’s done.

10 Best Laptop deals for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) in 2021

CS:GO Operation Broken Fang art I’m going to level with you. I’m not the biggest CS:GO fanboy around. I don’t have a 1.6 tattoo on my back, and I don’t spend hours watching ESL frag movies. But I have played quite a bit in my heyday – starting with 1.6 in my middle school years, then a bit of Source, and then I’ve finally caught on to the CS:GO hype train. But even with less time to play Counter-Strike, I’ve always kept up with the hardware needed to play it well. I know what you’re thinking – what’s there to keep up with? After all, I wouldn’t be surprised if a potato slicer could run CS:GO. While that is true, CS is one of the few games that seemingly benefit from an exceedingly high framerate. With high refresh rate displays, that’s even more apparent.

So what I’m going to do now? First, I’m going to take a look at what components you should expect to see at every price point, followed by a comparison of what’s available on the market right now, and for the grand finale, I’ll list 10 best gaming laptops for CS:GO in 2021. By the end of this article, you should have all the information you need to make an informed decision about which laptop to buy.

Enough chatter. Time to roll into my Counter-Strike requirement breakdown.

  • there’s no need for the latest and finest hardware, unless you want to go above 300 FPS

Minecraft wallpaper with good shaders Minecraft is a peculiar game. At first, it might look like a plucky little sanbox that should find fans in a small niche, then you look deeper and realize the sky’s the limit. Or, to be more accurate – The Sky is the limit (I can sense your eye-roll). I won’t give you a long-winded introduction; we all know why we’re here – finding your next laptop for Minecraft.

Given that you could play the game on a completely outdated computer, you might guess it isn’t that hard to find a decent laptop for Minecraft. So what’s the catch?

While it’s fair to say that any screen wired to a keyboard could play Minecraft (unless it’s a Chromebook, but even that might not a problem these days), the same gaming-capable laptop criteria still limit us. In some ways, it’s even more tricky to pick a laptop for a game like Minecraft because it’s not meant to be a single-purpose FPS-pumping machine but a general-purpose notebook with an emphasis on gaming. As a fair compromise between all-purpose and gaming, I found the ten best laptops to mine for diamonds no matter what your budget is.
