5 Laptops Every Gamer Should Consider While Buying A New One

Atmaj Vyas

So I’m an avid gamer and on the weekend I usually spend hours and hours playing. While I know the best gameplay experience usually comes from a PC, I’ve got to say, my laptop ain’t that bad either. Of lately, I’ve been running into a lot of issues with my laptop and that’s partly because it’s really old. So obviously, I began searching for a new one and that’s when it hit me, there are so many options out there. It’s extremely easy to get confused with all the options. So, if you’re in a similar situation, here are 5 recommendations that are all below a lakh!


The OMEN X series by HP is definitely up there on my recommendation list. With desktop-class graphics and performance and also a mechanical keyboard, it’s basically everything a gamer would need. It’s got two large, high-performance fans that pull cool air in from the numerous vents on the bottom. This means you’ve never got to worry about an overheating situation. There is also an integrated vapour chamber and heat pipes that transfer heat away from the GPU and CPU. It also comes loaded with an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics card so you know you’re graphics are on point with this one. There are various specifications so make sure you check out which one suits you.

Price: ₹ 65,994 ++

2. Acer Nitro 5

When it comes to gaming, the Acer laptops are usually what come to mind. This series is definitely a stand out one and all the more so if you’re looking for one under a lakh. With NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX1 or AMD Radeon™1 graphics, you know you’re in for a visual treat. Much like the HP, it’s got superior cooling and comes with a bunch of customisation options.

Price: ₹ 72,990 ++

3. MSI GV (8th Gen)

If you’re looking for one of the best gaming laptops under a lakh, this is one of them! For the price, you get everything you’re going to need in a gaming laptop. With next-generation VR ready graphics up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, Intel 8th Generation 6-Core processors and Nahimic 3.0 surround sound virtualization you know you’re getting every penny worth. The list goes on but that would mostly depend on what you’re looking for.

Price: ₹ 94,990 ++

4. Dell G3

By now you’ve pretty much got that literally all of these laptops come equipped with everything a gamer is looking for. It all comes down to the amount of money you want to drop for one of these bad boys and also the specifications you’re looking for. That being said, I’ve always been partial to Dell because pretty much every laptop I’ve used, has been from them. They are robust and also last a really long time. The G3 comes equipped with all the good stuff and it’s one I highly recommend.

Price: ₹ 66,290 ++

5. Acer Predator Helios 300

The last one on this list is no slouch either. Apart from being a really good looking laptop, this one is literally made for gaming. It’s like a rally car and is meant for just one thing. It’s like an architectural wonder and once you get onto this, you’re probably not going to switch back ever. I think when it comes to hardcore gaming laptops, Acer really knows exactly what people are looking for. The coolest part about this one is the PredatorSense which allows you to customise your gaming experience. It comes loaded with all the tech you’re going to need as well.

Price: ₹ 78,990 ++
