Best overall

If you want something with a little more grunt, the Razer Blade 15 should be your go-to crypto mining laptop. Our selected configuration here houses the RTX 3080, which will provide some seriously high hashrates for a notebook. It's not cheap, but if you also want a very capable gaming laptop (with an Intel Core i7-11800H), this is a good place to start.

Choosing the best laptop for crypto mining

The most vital component on any mining PC (be it a desktop or laptop) is the graphics processing unit. This is single-handedly what will power through the calculations to make you some money on the side. Therefore, we'd recommend you purchase the absolute best mining GPU you can afford. It will also double up as a capable gaming machine.

While the Razer Blade 15 won't win any awards on performance, and it certainly doesn't have the best graphics card for crypto mining, it does strike a good balance between value and performance. The Advanced version we included in this roundup packs more of a hefty punch if you want a better hashrate (and faster returns).
