Hi friends, today I’ve decided to write an article about an amazing upcoming game – Halo Infinite! The game looks so promising that I can’t wait to get my hands on it. I looked at the game’s requirements and confirmed that my laptop Predator Helios 300 can run the game without a problem. By doing extensive research on the game’s requirements, I now feel confident to share with you my recommend laptops that can run the game without any performance issues.
I’m sure most of you know what the Halo games series are about, and on what platforms the games can be played, but for those of you new to the series, I will briefly mention some basic info about Halo Infinite in the next paragraph.
Halo Infinite is a first-person shooter game developed by 343 Industries and can be played on Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and Series S. Apart from the main single-player story plot, the game can also be played in multiplayer. It is expected that the multiplayer version of the game will be free to play. This is a very smart move from Microsoft, as this will enable them to quickly build a big and strong player base and therefore giving the game a great start.
In the following paragraphs below, you can find the game’s requirements and then a list of all of the best laptops on the market today, suitable for Halo Infinite.

What are the best laptops for Halo Infinite?
ACER NITRO 5 – BEST AFFORDABLE LAPTOP FOR HALO INFINITE
The reason why this laptop is on the list of the best laptops for Halo Infinite is mainly its price/performance ratio. I was considering buying this laptop at the beginning when I kinda set my absolute maximum budget at 1000$. This laptop is actually even cheaper than that. And for this price, it is offering a 9th generation i5 Core with GTX 1650 graphics and 8 GB RAM.
You will notice that its specs are lower than the recommended requirements for Halo Infinite. But the only problem here is actually the RAM and this can be easily upgraded without much additional cost. Now granted it has an i5 Core and recommended is i7 Core. But these specs do not consider that i5 is the 9th generation and is more than capable of running the game at high settings.
For anybody who is on a budget, I really recommend this laptop as the best affordable choice for Halo Infinite.
- 9th Generation Intel Core i5-9300H Processor (Up to 4.1 GHz)
- 15.6 inches Full HD Widescreen IPS LED-backlit display; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Graphics with 4 GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM

ASUS TUF FX505GT 2021
For some extra money over the Acer Nitro 5, you get 16 GB RAM, an i7 9th generation processor, and 512 GB of SSD. I believe this is a really solid laptop and would recommend it to anyone. Especially if you are into Asus laptops you will love this one as it is fast, reliable, and built to last.
ACER PREDATOR HELIOS 300 2021- BEST OVERALL LAPTOP FOR HALO INFINITE
We finally come to my favorite laptop, the one and only Helios 300. For me, this laptop is hands down the best overall laptop for Halo Infinite. Considering the price of course. For only a little over a hundred dollars more than the previous laptop you get the 10th generation i7 Core, an amazing RTX 3060 g GB graphics, 16 GB RAM, and more. It is an absolute steal.
This is the laptop that I decided to purchase in the end. I own it for 2 months now and I absolutely love it. It is an absolute pleasure to play games on this beast. I have the setting cranked up to the max and the laptop still handles the game easily. If you are looking for THE laptop for Halo Infinite you need to look no further.

ALIENWARE M15 R4
Now we are entering more high-end models which also come at a higher price. Alienware is a well-known brand in the gaming industry and one of their laptops definitely deserves a place on this list. This laptop will last you for years.
I would recommend buying an additional cooling mat or cooling pad as the laptop may get a little hot when playing demanding games due to its compact design. Additionally, it is worth mentioning that it is the only laptop on this list with an 8 core i7 processor. Definitely recommended if your budget stretches this high.
- 15.6-inch FHD (Full HD 1920 x 1080) 144Hz 7ms 300-nits 72% color gamut
- 10th Generation Intel Core i7-10870H (8-Core, 16MB Cache, up to 5.0GHz Max Turbo Frequency)

CUK GF75 THIN
Last but not least is the most expensive beast laptop on this list. With 64 GB RAM, 1 GB SSD, 2 GB HDD, 10th generation i7 processor, and RTH 3060 graphics it is a monster. This laptop is a future-proof powerhouse. With this machine, there is no more question where you can run certain games and at what graphics setting cause the answer is always the same. Yes, you can run it at max settings ?.
The big difference compared to other laptops on this list is its size. It is the only 17″ laptop on this list. So if you will play your games directly on the laptop’s screen maybe this is an interesting option for you. I would say that if your budget is high enough this is a purchase you will not regret.
Best laptop for Halo Infinite – Final thoughts
Choosing your next gaming laptop is not an easy task. You have to think about which games you want to be able to play and check their system requirements. You want to be able to play them at max graphics settings for the best experience. I just love how Halo Infinite runs on my new Predator Helios 300.
Additionally, you also want to make sure that your laptop will be able to run games that come out for the next few years. So obviously, meeting minimum system requirements is out of the question. My recommendation would also be that you aim to surpass also recommended system requirements. Just to make sure that you will be able to run Halo Infinite in case of any future updates. Or if you will want to play more demanding games in the future.
Oh, and one piece of advice, if you are deciding between two laptops, one cheaper and one more expensive, go for the more expensive one. You will never regret buying better hardware but you may regret buying a laptop that could become underpowered in a year or two.
And lastly but most importantly. Have fun playing Halo Infinite with your new laptop. Hope to meet you in the game someday ?.
