What’s the best Diablo 4 laptop?

MSI’s gaming laptops have been incredibly popular on our site. But, we were particularly intrigued when one seemed to show up in Diablo 4. MSI commissioned High Performance Laptops to check out the mysterious appearance of its latest Katana gaming laptop within the game and see why this, and the MSI Raider GE68 HX 13V, were arguably the best Diablo 4 laptops.

Bluffer’s guide to Diablo 4

Fans, please, skip ahead and don’t read what follows. For the uninitiated, the Diablo universe is set in a ‘mortal realm’ called Sanctuary amidst an eternal conflict between the High Heavens and Burning Hells. Sanctuary was created by Lilith, a nepotistically appointed, C-suite demon, and Inarius, an Arcangel war hero who met her when he was captured and taken to a disavowed hell-based black site.

Both were bored of the perpetual punch-up, so they grabbed some angel and demon mates before stealing and using the all-powerful ‘Worldstone’ to create the Earth-like, Sanctuary. Everyone got loved-up and spawned ‘unholy’ super-powered offspring, which started turning evil. Lilith smote them which irked Inarius who banished her to ‘The Void.’ Inarius then hacked the Worldstone to turn the remaining demigod denizens into more-traditional, human-like, Sanctuary citizens.

Three things make Lilith grumpy: Being reminded that she got her job because of her dad; Hell; and low frame rates on her Diablo 4 laptop.

Anyhow, it turns out there wasn’t much to do in the Void and Lilith has returned in Diablo 4 with a warning about an impending annexation of Sanctuary by Team Hell. You, as a somewhat-gifted humanoid player, have to level-up and [checks notes] fight off the Hordes of Hell to save the world. All good.

Why you need a good gaming laptop for Diablo 4

The Diablo series has been running since 1997, giving the eye candy visuals in, what is now a massive, open-world MMO adventure, plenty of time to evolve into a AAA-title with highly cinematic and immersive cutscenes and gameplay. So, you’re going to need a good gaming laptop to make the best of it: one that can keep the action smooth when things get hectic on screen and ensure that all the eye-candy features are ramped-up to the max. As such, you’re going to need a powerful CPU, GPU and a good screen, and MSI has you covered.

But first… w00t!

The MSI Katana 15 gaming laptop and Diablo 4

MSI likes Diablo 4 a lot – so much so, that it went all fan-fiction and conjured-up some Diablo 4-themed loot by manifesting a Katana 15 gaming laptop inside the game!

MSI makes the point that gaming laptops which wield the latest Nvidia RTX 40-series graphics processors, like the Katana 15, are significantly superior to those with last-gen GPUs like the RTX 3060. This is largely down to the DLSS 3 A.I. technology which automatically upscales the graphics, leaving the rest of the GPU free to produce faster frame rates and more eye-catching examples of eye-candy effects.

In one example, we can see an MSI Katana 15, with a Core i7 processor and RTX 4060 GPU, playing Diablo 4 at 1080p and Ultra detail settings at 250fps while battling mobs of demons. It all looks great on the 144Hz screen and the RGB keyboard (with highlighted WASD keys) only makes everything better.

The MSI Katana 15 is currently High Performance Laptops’ Best Budget Gaming Laptop and has won Best Value awards for both the gaming laptop category and laptops in general. It’s also on sale right now and you can buy one for $400 off!

The Best Diablo 4 Laptop

The Katana is a great mid-range gaming laptop, but if gaming (or Diablo 4) is life, then you’ll want the best of the best – the ultimate Diablo 4 laptop – which is the MSI Raider GE68 HX 13V. MSI put’s it thusly,

“Built for Performance: Fight your way through nightmare dungeons, and defeat demons swiftly using the powerful #MSIGE68HX, which is equipped with the latest RTX40 Series graphics to smooth up the framerate in your Diablo 4 gameplay with DLSS3 and AI-Frame generation.”

Why the MSI Raider GE68 HX 13V is THE Diablo 4 laptop.

MSI adds, “If the MSI Raider GE68HX gaming laptops were in Diablo 4, they would be Ancestral Unique Items! With up to RTX4090 graphics, experience the fantasy world of Diablo 4 with the highest frame rate possible.”

Naturally, the best isn’t always the most wallet friendly and so MSI is running a promotion which is [checks notes, again] slashing the cost by $1,800! Don’t miss out! The sale is limited so get your right now!
