Are you one of those many highly passionate gamers out there who love being one but don’t want to show it openly, at least not in a way that is loud and attention-seeking? We totally understand your desire to keep your identity as a gamer low-key. That’s why we’d like to recommend these gaming laptops with an extremely subtle design. They don’t have any bright flashing RGB lights or overly sharp edges that can give your identity away as a gamer on the go. Go ahead, check them out. We won’t tell anyone you did.

Lenovo Legion Y540

Launched last year as a replacement to the Legion Y530, the Legion Y540 enjoys a classy and modern design that won’t look out of place in say, an office cubicle. The laptop comes powered by an Intel 9th Gen CPU in combination with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 16-series of graphics cards. At 2.3kg, it’s quite lightweight too. The Legion Y540 comes with single-colour backlighting on the keyboard. There’s also a backlit Legion logo on the top cover but it’s quite tasteful and subdued.

Dell Gaming G3

Agreed, the new-generation Dell Gaming G3 resembles its more expensive Alienware cousins in a bid to look more hip. But that’s hardly the case with the previous-generation Dell Gaming G3. It sports an all-black design with a dotted pattern on the inside panels but has mild electric blue accents to keep things fresh. While the Dell Gaming G3 comes off as silently attractive, it’s hardly loud or attention-grabbing. On the inside, it’s got Intel’s 8th Gen CPU combined with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 10-series graphics card. At 2.5kg, the Dell Gaming G3 isn’t all that heavy either.

Lenovo IdeaPad L340 Gaming

The IdeaPad sub-brand typically represents Lenovo’s mainstream laptop offerings. But in a new twist that’s as perky as it is classy, the Lenovo IdeaPad L340 Gaming combines tasteful looks with entry-level gaming hardware. Save for that bright blue backlighting and accents on the grey-black body, there’s little to give it away as a gamer’s laptop. On the inside, the IdeaPad L340 Gaming packs Intel’s 9th Gen CPU and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 16-series graphics card. At 2.3kg, it’s quite lightweight too for everyday use.

Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY

The Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY is, as the name suggests, the toughest laptop in this list. Asus says it has conducted several durability tests on the machine for ruggedness. Except for the bright red keyboard backlighting, there isn’t much to give your identity as a closet gamer away to passers-by. Under the hood, FX505DY sports an AMD Ryzen 5 chip combined with an AMD RX 560X graphics card. At 2.2kg, the FX505DY is one of the lightest entry-level gaming laptops you can get today.
