CES 2021 laptop PC ads were high last week. Lots of pro or semi-pro for home or creation, consumer models, some great nomadic races and machines of special interest to us today: ultra-thin gaming laptops.
Featuring a 13, 14 or 15 inch panel that displays thickness and weight, this new generation of computers will have high pitches even for large gaming laptops.

This is thanks to Intel (and its new Intel Core H35 processors), AMD (and its new Raison 5000H and 5000U processors) and finally, Nvidia (and its GeForce RTX 3000 for laptops) that this new family of PV can do. Finally live up to our expectations.
Despite these sophisticated components, not all ultrafine is overpriced. Some are offered for 1200 to 1500 euros, which is not yet expensive for good gaming machines.
Of all the announcements made last week, four machines caught our attention.
Asus ROG Flow X13
The first is the Asus ROG Flow X13. It runs on the latest AMD and Nvidia processors and can display your favorite games on its 13.4-inch screen, as well as be transformed into a work machine or a large touchpad.
The graphics card is not one of the latest RTX, just the GTX 1650. However it is enough to play some games from time to time. And for serious things … it takes. But not under the keyboard, next to it.
This hybrid can be connected to an ROG XG One, an external graphics card, which is no larger than an external power supply. It turns out to be a real game beast.We can’t wait until it can be tested!

MSI Stealth 15M
At 15.6-inches in size, and slightly larger than the Flow X13, the Stealth 15M from MSI transports the latest Intel H35 processors (Core i7-11375H) along with the RTX 3060 graphics card. It’s not in a priori, max-cue shape, so it moves.
Black or white, this case weighs 1.7 kg (slightly shorter than a full water bottle) and has a maximum thickness of 1.6 cm.

Lenovo Legion Slim 7
Even there, it crossed 15.6 inches to the press. In its new version, Lenovo’s Legion Slim 7 weighs less than 2 kg, is only 1.9 cm thick and is offered with the latest AMD and Nvidia components. These include the Raizen 7 5900h processor (maximum) or the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q graphics card (optimal).
Offers both a full HD display at 165Hz or 4K at 60Hz, the Slim 7, but if you want to play a lot go with the former.

Acer Predator Triton 300 Second Edition
With only 14 inches in our selection, the Triton 300 SE explodes most boxes. Like the other machines selected here it is very simple and discreet. Its metal case, which feels heavy, actually weighs only 1.7 kilograms, and its thickness is limited to 1.79 cm.
Although Acer has decided to keep AMD Raizen processors in some laptops for 2021, Intel’s Core H35s have led the charge on the Triton. It comes with the best GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q to outperform all your games.

Far from our choice, the razor blade 15, however, claims to unify it. However, this is not the case – the ultra-thin gaming laptop PC is, to be sure – it only packs extremely sharp parts in its black aluminum case. However, on paper, it is a good choice for those who want a machine with reduced size and thickness.
