The black seamless aluminum cover is trendy and solid, You can find the Gigabyte logo on the surface, It maybe not famous on a laptop, But a lot of PCs comes with the motherboard produced by it, it is a good manufacturer from Taiwan, China.

I get shocked when I find the resolution of the 15. 6″ 3mm ultra-thin bezel screen is UHD 3840×2160 AMOLED display, As we ordered a lot of 15.6-inch laptops that have the UHD 3840×2160 resolution screens. Now you can imagine the super-sharpness of the display in the Gigabyte AERO 15 laptop, Of course, if you like the HDTV, It offers the HDMI cables for watching.

Do you like video chatting on the internet, I think it is great if your friends can see the detail face through the camera, It may be hard to do with the other bad webcams, But I think this 1.3 mp camera would meet any demands, Besides It can take quality photos if you want to share a self-portrait to your family.

Performance Talk

There is no need to introduce the Intel 9th Gen Intel Core i7-9750H 6 core processor which is a great processor that has Turbo Boost Technology support, So you will discover the speed rate of this processor can rise and fall between 2. 6GHz and 4. 5GHz, That means the laptop is auto-adjusting the mode for your software, Besides, It has faster boost speed with the help of a 16GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM, Maybe you like bigger memory, I think you will like the 2 memory slots.


  • Consist of 9th Gen Intel Core i7-9750H 6 core processor

2. Asus TUF Gaming Laptop, IPS Full HD15.6-Inch Gaming Laptop

Asus TUF Gaming Laptop, IPS Full HD15.6-Inch Gaming LaptopBest Laptops For Pentesting 2024I feel the Asus TUF Gaming Laptop looks are quite heavy with the weight of 8.4 pounds, As far as I can see the weight of many 15.6 inch laptops is about 6 pounds. The combination of black skin and silver keyboard is cool enough for a gaming laptop.


  • Dedicated AMD Radeon RX560 with 4GB Graphics Memory
  • Contains Bluetooth 4.0 and USB Ports
  • Installed with Windows 10 Home
  • With 8GB DDR4 SDRAM Memory RAM and 2.0MP Webcam
  • Comes with a 3.70 GHz AMD Quad-Core Ryzen 5-3550H 2.10 GHz processor
  • Get 15.6 Inch Full HD monitor
  • DL DVD±RW/CD-RW Drive and 256 GB PCIe SSD Storage Included

I am glad to see that the resolution of the Asus TUF Gaming Laptop 15.6-Inch Gaming Notebook is the 1920×1080 pixels, not the 1366×768, for all I know from other 15.6 inch screens, The 1366×768 is not sharp enough. The keyboard is a fast response when you are typing on the buttons.

How about The Performance?

You can discover that CPU frequency of the AMD Quad-Core Ryzen 5-3550Hcan reach to 3.7GHz if it started the Turbo Boost feature, This is an excellent performance that can handle any software. There is 4G GDDR5 video memory in the Dedicated AMD Radeon RX560 which is the high-end graphics that is better than HD7850M but a litter poorer than HD7870M from AMD. From our test, The FPS of this graphics with the AMD Quad-Core Ryzen 5-3550H 2.10 GHz is about 18.2 at 1080p resolution, It means that not great but very good.

The 256SSD hard drive is enough for storing games and the 8GB DDR4 SDRAM Memory is great to boost your laptop’s speed.

3. Alienware M17X 

Alienware M17XBest Laptops For Pentesting 2024The new Alienware flagship laptop the M17X redefines laptop gaming with its quad-core processor and 2 of the fastest laptop graphics cards ever made the GTX 280m SLI. For those of you that do not know, the graphics card is the single most important hardware component for gaming. As the X17M has the fastest graphics cards on the market its no surprise that its the fastest gaming laptop available.

The design of the X17M is fantastic with illuminated keys, full aluminum case, and the sleek stealth Alienware trademark design. Long gone are the days or plastic laptop cases, aluminum has taken over. The LCD monitor is by far the best we have ever seen in a laptop, with better than high definition picture quality and super bright thanks to its double backlight design meaning you will never have to worry about struggling to see the screen on a sunny day. Even the touchpad is the best we have ever come across in terms of responsiveness and design, Alienware has truly scrutinized every centimeter of the design to bring you perfection.

Even the standard 2.0Ghz quad-core (4 processing cores) processor is more than enough to handle any game but just in case you want more processing power, Alienware allows you to upgrade all the way up to a 2.5Ghz quad-core processor with overclocking capabilities. The memory starts at 4GBs of 1333Mhz DDR3 and is upgradeable all the way up to 8GBs which is the fastest laptop memory money can buy.

If you are not beginning to sense a pattern emerging yet let me put it this way:

Even the most basic of the M17X will play all games incredibly well as well as bringing you the Alienware lifestyle that no other computer manufacturer can seem to match. What more can we say, its and Alienware, and its the best Alienware laptop ever made.

4. Dell Studio 1555 15.6-Inch Laptop

Dell Studio 1555 15.6-Inch LaptopBest Laptops For Pentesting 2024The Dell Studio 1555 is shockingly good value for money for quality and performance. Up to now, our favorite medium range gaming laptop has been the HP Pavilion DV6 with its great balance of hardware components and power graphics card at its price range.

The Dell Studio 1555 has a fast Intel 2.0Ghz dual-core processor that will be able to handle any program with ease and will provide you with some good future-proofing as new programs grow more demanding over time.

4GB of ram running at a very fast 800Mhz will not only be more than enough to run multiple programs smoothly but their 800Mhz clock speed will give you a nice boost when gaming.

Our favorite hardware component in the entire laptop is the ATI 4570 graphics card. This card is roughly 20% faster for gaming than the HP Pavilions ATI 4530 that we loved so much and will be able to handle even all of the new games on medium and possibly even high settings. The additional benefit of the ATI 4500 series graphics cards is they use very little power giving you a longer battery life when you don’t have access to a plug.


  • 320GB HDD
  • 4GB DDR2 RAM
  • ATI 4570 Graphics Card
  • Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
  • Intel 2.0Ghz dual-core processor
  • 15.6-Inch Screen

With the massive 320GB hard drive you will struggle to use all the storage space giving you plenty of space for backing up all your files and having all the programs you own installed at once.

Yet another place where the Studio 15 shines is with its 15.6-inch high definition LCD monitor giving you a fantastic quality screen with the ability to watch movies in HD. This monitor is far superior to all other laptops in this price range.

As you would expect the laptop is fully compatible with wireless internet and a DVD re-writer to burn your own CDs and DVDs. Finally, Dell is providing a free upgrade to the new Microsoft operating system Windows 10 as soon as it is launched.

5. HP Gaming 15-EC0013DX

HP Gaming 15-EC0013DXBest Laptops For Pentesting 2024The HP Gaming 15-EC0013DX 15.6″ Laptop is an entry laptop with a dedicated graphics card to boost graphics performance. Though priced low it is targeted at the mass market and average laptop user suggesting that it should be up to the task of running a little bit of everything.


HP has done a great job to bring a little bit of color and style to the HP Gaming 15-EC0013DX.  We also like the design of the laptop as it shows HP has paid attention to making the thing look good as well as performing well.

It is also worth paying attention to the height of the laptop as it is noticeably thinner than most on the market.


The HP Gaming 15-EC0013DX uses the AMD Ryzen 5 3550H processor which while being a more than capable processor is noticeably slower than the Intel Core i3 range of processors.

The good news is that the graphics card makes up for any lack of oomph from the processor. The graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 3GB dedicated graphics which should make short work of any HD movies you want to watch on your laptop and is even capable of playing the latest games albeit on low graphics settings.

The laptop ticks the memory box by coming with 8GBs of RAM which is the optimal amount these days and the 256GB solid-state drive is generous indeed.

We take our hats off to the HP engineers as the 15-EC0013DX offers an incredibly well-balanced specification where all components complement each other with similar performance levels, eliminating those performance bottlenecks we often see through poor design in more expensive laptops.


As expected these days you get a DVD RW letting to burn DVDs, full wireless capabilities, a 720p HD 15.6-inch screen, and 3 USB ports. The Pavilion G6-1326ea also comes with a built-in webcam and card reader if you want to quickly get data from your SD card.

The battery life is stated as 6 hours by the manufacturer which is well above average. We would caution that battery life is dependent on how hard the laptop is being worked and would suggest that you shouldn’t expect more than 5 hours during general use.

The Verdict

The Pavilion G6-1326ea is a well-balanced laptop that will suit most users. It will make the ideal, home, office, or student computer as well as a cheap entry solution for laptop gamers. It is incredibly well priced and will challenge far more expensive laptops.

The only users we would not recommend this laptop to is the high-performance running demanding video editing and CAD programs or the heavy gamer.


I can now call it a day because I believe you are fully pleased with review and buying for buying the best laptops for pentesting.
