Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'. 

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU. 

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

These are all common sense tips but...

  • If you are looking to emulate more recent systems then your laptop will have to carry a large capacity to run multiple processes, extensions and to keep up with the emulator's CPU requirement. That's just to start.
  • If you plan on emulating large 3D-environments as in a 1st-Person-Shooter, such as COD and God of War as well as any extensive RPG-Environment then you will need additional processing requirements and a fairly up-to-date graphics card on your laptop.
  • For AMD processors you should be looking at FX8000 or better. 
  • For Intel processors you should be looking at i5 or i7 processors such as i5-4670K and i5-3570K, the "K" series allows for overclocking and consistent and smooth performance. Great i7 processors are i7-4700MQ and i7-4930MX and are pretty affordable in comparison to newer variants.
Lastly, for emulating newer games GEForce GPU/Graphics cards are preferred, almost necessary. 2 - 5 GB of RAM minimum on your laptop/Computer will work fine.

Now, let's get to the laptops.

  1. Toshiba Qosmio X75-A7180 17.3-Inch Laptop (2.4 GHz Intel Core i7-4700MQ Processor, 16GB DIMM, 1TB HDD, 256GB SSD, Blu-ray BD-RE, Windows 8.1) Black  --> It's got great reviews, over 52 reviews to be exact, fits into all the specs needed for game emulation, and runs the newest operating's only around 273$ USD, just go to ''See All Buying Options'' after clicking HERE.
