Chillblast Helix Ultra Slim Gaming
Apparently the Chillblast Helix Ultra Slim Gaming is the thinnest gaming laptop in the world. True or not, its 21.8mm depth is impressive. As are the internals, which include 8GB of DDR3 RAM, an Intel Core i7 quad core processor and Nvidia GTX 870M graphics card. A 120GB Samsung SSD and 1TB hard drive complete the gaming-specific package.

Buying the best gaming laptop no longer means playing second fiddle to the best gaming PC brands and next-gen consoles. Getting the best laptop for games will give you the gaming gusto to rival the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, these rigs can offer next-gen quality gaming, on the move.
From the over the top stylings of the Alienware 18, to the slim and svelte Razer Blade, these laptops pack impressive processors, high-end graphics cards and loads of RAM. If you're planning a night in with a copy of Crysis 3 or Grid 2 then these machines will give you the best experience going.
Many of the laptops in this list are a bit on the pricey side, with the cheapest coming in at barely under a grand. This might seem steep, especially when compared to say the PS4, which retails for £349, however when you see the spec sheets of these machines you'll understand why. 1080p HD screens are common place, as are the latest Intel processors and RAM often amounting to 16GB.
Standouts on the list? Well here at T3 we're big fans of the Alienware 14. We love the glorious HD display, the Klipsch speakers and the surprisingly smooth trackpad. All in all, a pretty impressive package. Both the Scan 3XS and Gigabyte P27K are good buys too, though their design is seriously underwhelming and a little drab. Look past this though and you've got two smashing machines.
