Neo just announced their newest gaming laptops. Yes, they launched not just one but 4 gaming laptops.  They have different screen sizes and of course different prices. These Windows 8 gaming laptops ranges from 11.6″-15.6″ and the cheapest of them all will only cost you P25,999. Not bad if you ask me. But of course, the specification of that laptop is pretty much lower than the high end one. Why don’t you check out these gaming laptops after the break. Oh and let’s start with the most affordable gaming laptop from Neo.

Neo Elan LD1GL

I don’t know what does the LD1GL stands for (hehe!) but the Neo Elan LD1GL is the most affordable gaming laptop that was launch yesterday. The Neo Elan LD1GL1 packs a 14″ display, an Intel Core i3-3110M 2.4 GHz processor, 4 GB of RAM and the GPU is NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M with 2 GB DDR3 VRAM. All of that for P25,999.
