Best RTX 3060 Laptops Under $1,500 – Top Picks

Looking for the BEST RTX 3060 laptop under 1500 dollars?

I’m a laptop enthusiast who’s been watching YouTubers like Jarrod’s Tech and other laptop reviewers for YEARS.

I’ll list down a few best RTX 3060 laptops that I think are truly the best under the $1,500 budget range.

Let’s take a look.



Best RTX 3060 Laptop Under $1,500 in 2022

Lenovo Legion 5 Pro

Lenovo Legion 5 Pro is hands down the BEST RTX 3060 laptop for under $1,500!

At the time putting this list of best RTX 3060 laptops, the pricing for the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro was under $1,500, so don’t blame me for including this laptop here when it goes up later! 😅

But seriously, it’s a really great laptop for under 1,500 if you can find it at this price anywhere with these specifications.

If you can’t, paying a bit more is still worth it, in my opinion.

ASUS ROG Strix G15

This is probably the second-best RTX 3060 laptop on this list. (Obviously)

Lenovo Legion 5 Pro is better because it has a refreshing design that almost no one had seen before on a gaming laptop.

It’s stylish and still not that over-the-top gaming laptop design that we’ve seen countless times with abhorrent red color accents all over.

Plus it has a better thermal design and thermal management system.

Acer Predator Helios 300

I don’t personally like the Helios 300 as I’ve heard that it has some problems. But since it matches our criteria for the best RTX 3060 laptop under 1,500, I’m including it in the list anyway.

The problem with the Helios 300 is that it has a slower millisecond response time for its display, which isn’t ideal for those playing competitive titles or matches on this gaming laptop.

Plus it doesn’t give you a MUX switch, which can boost your FPS and allow you to play games with better performance.

ASUS TUF Dash 15

Another ASUS laptop on the list. I like the other ASUS laptop more though, ASUS ROG Strix G15.

Anyway, this ASUS TUF Dash 15 is a great gaming laptop as well, I just like the looks of the ASUS ROG Strix G15 more.

I’d pick this laptop any day if I needed one for playing games and multitasking or any other heavy application work, but gaming is what I’d really choose such a laptop for mainly.

Becuase for work and other productivity tasks, I think the newer MacBooks are insanely better.
