Find the best laptops for Rust

Best Laptops for Rust

Rust is an indie adventure game developed and published by Facepunch Studios in 2018. The only aim in Rust is to survive. Everything wants you to die - the island’s wildlife and other inhabitants, the environment, other survivors. Do whatever it takes to last another night.

Laptop Requirements for Rust

The system requirements are quite demanding, and a gaming laptop with a new graphics processing unit is needed for successfully playing Rust. GeForce RTX 2060 or better mobile GPU is required.

16gb is a high amount of RAM, which has to be taken to account when choosing a laptop. 10gb is enough if you only want to meet the minimum requirements.

Also, note that at least 25gb of hard drive space is needed, which has to be noted if you install many games.
