Hey guys, Beshoy here, a gaming addict.
I am here to help you find a the best laptop for gaming under 500 , so let us get right to it 🙂
But before we do let us do a reality check :
- I (of course) will do my best to find cheap gaming laptops under 50o but no matter how good I am it will not be as good as gaming laptop under 1000 .
- The gaming laptops that I will list below(if you can call a 500$ laptop a gaming laptop) will work great and they will be the best you can get for the price, However it will not operate games like Fallout 4.
- You can still however, play popular games like Minecraft and DOTA 2 without lag as well as many newer titles.
- Even though the options are limited when it comes to this price range but that makes it easier to make a decision.
- The highest priced (still under 500) is on the top, the lowest price is further down(with less power of course).

HP Star Wars Special Edition 15-an050nr 15.6-Inch Laptop (VS) 2016 Newest HP Pavilion 17
We already decided for you that HP star wars is better and we will tell you why 🙂
- Intel® Core(TM) i5-6200U 2.3 GHz Processor (VS) Intel Core i5-4210U (1.7 GHz)

Plus, the price difference is not that big and we are still under the 500 budget so why not get the better one 😀
- We have to admit the Star Wars theme is Awesome :D.
- The glowing red back lit keyboard is pretty cool too 🙂
- Keys are large so it should be comfortable to most hand sizes (Yes we are that details oriented) and there shouldn’t be a lot of mis spelling when you are chatting.
- The two built-in speakers by Bang and Olufsen is pretty good, and will make gaming even more enjoyable (if that is even possible).
