The Velocity Micro Raptor MX50 is a 15.6-inch gaming laptop that has been praised for its high-level of craftsmanship, dedicated NVIDIA graphics, full-color backlit keyboard and for its great selection of ports. However, it can only be configured with an NVIDIA GTX 1050 which limits this laptop’s gaming performance for future titles. Though, with the rise of external GPU enclosures hitting the market, this should not be as big of an issue as it used to be.
