The Cheapest and Most Expensive RTX Gaming Laptops in South Africa

RTX Gaming Laptops South Africa

2019 is no doubt the year of RTX gaming laptops. At CES 2019, it is all we saw as every brand is now jumping on board the ship and making sure they take the power and features of NVIDIA’s RTX hardware and put them into portable gaming notebooks.

Evetech, our preferred PC gaming hardware outlet, has uploaded the RTX range for MSI, ASUS and Gigabyte and we wanted to put together a buyer’s guide for those of you who are looking for laptops on a budget and those who have more money than you know what’s good for you. Here are the cheapest and most expensive RTX gaming laptops in South Africa.

Pay attention to the finer features of the devices. Some of them are more expensive as they have 4K displays, more storage or G-Sync.

Pricing could change without notice. Some of these devices are still unavailable in SA and should launch by the end of February 2019.

MSI clearly comes in with the most affordable RTX gaming laptops across 2060, 2070 and 2080 chipsets. However, ASUS does offer things such as G-Sync and other cool hardware features such as per-key RGB and some great keyboard designs. There are some other quirks like a volume rocker on the ASUS GX701 and that front-facing RGB bar on the SCAR II GL704.

In the end, it all depends on personal preference when it comes to value-added features. But let us know what brand you would look at if you are in the market for an RTX gaming laptop.
