Getting a gaming laptop is a great deal. But deciding which one can be overwhelming. Considering the options that are there, getting the best gaming laptop under 1 lakh is hard.

With gaming laptops, the major thing to consider is the graphics card. If you've got a killer graphics card, you've got most of the things right.

If you're not looking for a gaming laptop but a normal laptops to take to work, then we have compiled another list for you here: Best Laptops under 100000.

So we've compiled the top gaming laptops below 100000 in India there are in the market right now, to make life easier for you:

In terms of sheer power no other laptop comes anywhere close to this one for best gaming laptops under 100000. This is because, in this list this is the only laptop that features an Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics card which has a mind blowing 6GB GDDR6 Frame Buffer.

The RTX technology alone is not the cool part of the RTX 2060 graphics card. It performs at par with the outgoing GTX 2070 which was a hell hound itself.

GTX 2070 was a beast of a graphics card, which handled every game thrown at it extremely well. It could play all the games at its time in Ultra easily.

The RTX too therefore is no stranger to Ultra settings. It can play almost all of the new titles at Ultra.  What more could you ask from a laptop?

The next part of technology we need to touch is the processor. The Asus Tuf gaming features a Ryzen 7-3750H processor. Most of the laptop buyers are a bit sceptical when they hear AMD processors but that's not the case. AMD produces some of the greatest chips now-a-days.

If Intel processors are what you benchmark processors with, the Ryzen 7-3750H performs at par with Intel i7-8750H. The processor is a quad core processor with a base clock speed of 2.3GHz and has a max boost clock speed of around 4.0GHz. The processor is extremely perform-ant and would do all the tasks you dare throw at it.

The Asus Tuf Gaming FX505DV features 16GB of RAM which is up-gradable to 32GB, if some random day you wake up and feel that the amount of RAM is not enough. But we feel 16 is all you need.

For more permanent storage the laptop features a 512 GB SSD, which is enough for most. But if you think you need a tad bit more of extra space, you can get another SSD. Asus has put an extra slot to put an SSD.

This laptop is extremely cheap (around 80K) and we feel though it is well under the one lakh limit, this is perform-ant enough to put all the other laptops to shame.

In the ports department, the laptop has one audio jack, one USB 2.0 slot, two USB 3.2 ports, one RJ45 LAN jack and one HDMI port. The lack of USB-C port is a bit sad, but we are not complaining.

The performance of this laptop overthrows all the other laptops we have seen at this price range and we strongly recommend you to buy this.

PROS

  • Most powerful graphics card in this price range
  • SSD storage instead of traditional HDD
  • Has ray tracing technology, which brings more lively lighting to games

CONS

  • Storage space is low with just 512 GB
  • Ryzen 7 doesn't perform as well as its Intel counterpart

MSI GF65 Thin 9SEXR-438IN

Processor: Intel Core i5-9300H 9th Gen Processor
RAM: 8GB DDR4
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060
Storage: 512GB SSD
Display: 15.6 inches

MSI has made a laptop tailormade for gaming, with the MSI GF65 laptop. This is perfect for gaming due to the RTX 2060 graphics card which is featured inside the laptop. This as we said before is one of the greatest gaming laptops available in India at this budget.

The laptop features an Intel Core i5-9300H processor which is a ninth generation processor. The processor has a base speed of 2.40GHz and a maximum clock speed of 4.10GHz. The processor is a quad core processor which helps in multitasking. More applications can be run parallelly due to multitasking. The processor also has another trick up its sleeve called multithreading. This makes an individual core run multiple programs at the sam time. This also helps in increasing the overall speed of the laptop.

The laptop comes with Windows 10 preinstalled and has lifetime validity. The OS is a 64 bit operating system.

The display on the laptop is a 15.6" screen and has a resolution of 1920x1080 making it Full HD. The display is of IPS quality and has a refresh rate of 120Hz. The high refresh rate will help in gaming. Refresh rate is a measure of the number of times the screen refreshes in a second. Higher the refresh rate the better the viewing experience. This also helps in you reacting to the event faster. This helps particularly in shooting games.

For memory, the laptop has only 8GB of DDR4 RAM. This is a bit low for a gaming laptop but we are willing to overlook that fact due to the graphics card. The RAM can be upgraded anytime and are extremely cheap.

For storage, the laptop comes with a 512GB NVMe SSD. Here also we believe, MSI could have given a little more, but again, these are things that can be upgraded. But when it comes to processors and graphics cards, they cannot be upgraded and we believe one should take the very best.

The laptop features an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card which offers ray tracing technology. Ray tracing is the technology with which live shadows and reflections can be drawn on the screen. The graphics card is a 6GB graphics card and offers excellent performance. This graphics card will aid you a lot during gaming.

The keyboard on the laptop is also lovely and good to type on. It is a full sized keyboard and have enough space for typing and usage. The keyboard is backlit and is single colour (Red).

The laptop comes with 2 year carry in warranty and overall we are extremely satisfied with the laptop.

The laptop features a 15.6" screen with a resolution of 1920x1080 making it Full HD. The display has a refresh rate of 60Hz but for an extra 8k, you can get the same laptop with a refresh rate of 144Hz. The display has an anti glare coating and has IPS level quality.

The graphics card in the laptop is an Nvidia GeForce GTX1650 graphics card which has 4GB of dedicated video memory. The graphics card is powerful and can play all the latest titles. Asking for it to play on Ultra settings might be a bit too much, but otherwise the gaming on the laptop is expected to be great. The laptop has large fans which helps to cool the laptop during long hours of gaming and will help in great performance.

The laptop features 8GB of DDR4 RAM. The RAM paired with an SSD of 256GB provides performance that is unmatched. SSDs are great devices for increased performance of the laptop. Using an SSD over an HDD will give rise to performance increase of up to 3x. The laptop also has a 1 TB HDD so that your storage needs are met.

The laptop has a backlit keyboard to help in better visibility of the keys at night. The laptop offers great performance and great value for money.

Graphics Card: NVIDIA GTX 1660Ti
Storage: 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD
Display: 15.6-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) 120HZ Wideview

The MSI GL63 is a formidable machine, that can handle the toughest of tasks you give it, owing to its i7 processor and GTX 1660Ti Graphics card.

MSI is a name not much hard in India, but is an huge gaming laptop company. They have managed to create a brilliant maLink to Amazonchine with the GL63.

The laptop features the latest generation i7 processor, Intel Core i7-9750H which is a hexa-core processor. The processor has a base speed of 2.6GHz and has a turbo boost of upto 4.0GHz. The processor is extremely powerful considering it is an i7 and is the latest.

The laptop has Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti graphics card which features Turing architecture. The 1660Ti rivals the likes of GTX 1070 graphics cards. The Turing architecture ensures that the laptop remains cooler and faster than the older graphics cards. Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti has 6GB of frame buffer and 12 Gbps of memory speed.

The laptop has only 8GB of RAM which is kind of a spoil sport and but is up-gradable. RAM modules are pretty cheap now a days so we won't linger much on that fact.

For more permanent storage, the laptop features 256GB SSD and 1 TB of HDD, which is more than enough in today's world of cloud storage.

The keyboard back-lighting is single colour (red), which we sort of hate. We would have preferred at-least RGB lighting, let alone individual key lighting.

The laptops has two USB 3.1 ports, one USB 3.1 Gen 2 port, 1 USB type-c port, one RJ45 LAN jack, one HDMI port, one SD card reader, one mic in and one headphone out jack.

The GTX 1660 Ti, is powerful enough to play all the latest titles in low or medium settings. Asking it to play the latest titles in Ultra might be a bit too much. We kind of like this laptop for the value it offers and making it a contender for one of the best gaming laptops under 1 Lakh.

PROS

  • Only 8GB of RAM
  • Brilliant cooling
  • Lots of storage with additional 1TB HDD

CONS

  • Has only 8GB of RAM
  • Single colour backlight instead of RGB
  • Battery doesn't last long

The Dell Inspiron G3 strikes more of a mature laptop. It doesn't scream for attention like the usual gaming laptops. Most of the times you'll feel kind of embarrassed, especially if you're old and married, to pull out your gaming laptop. Most of the gaming laptops have lights running around them which makes it feel a bit childish. Dell has managed to hide the G3's gaming capabilities pretty well.

The Dell Inspiron like most of the other laptops under 100000, has an Intel i7-9750H processor. As mentioned earlier the processor is a hexa core and has a base speed of 2.6GHz. The clock speed can all the way up to 4.5GHz in case you want more power. The processor can do all the tasks you throw at it in a breeze.

In terms of graphics processing we didn't like the fact that it just featured an Nvidia GTX 1650, we believe it could have been at least an 1660Ti, if not an RTX. But wouldn't complain a lot as it is pretty perform ant and would play all the modern titles at High on the very least.

The laptop features 16GB of DDR4 RAM which is upgradable but we don't feel there is ever a need to have RAM of more than 16GB. And for permanent storage it justs has a 512 GB SSD. You can pop in another SSD if need arises.

The laptop is quiet powerful and is one of the best gaming laptops under 1 lakh, especially owing to the fact that it looks mature. If you have ever been embarrassed at the airport by your gaming laptop, this is the one to go to.

PROS

  • Looks professional
  • Exceptionally quiet and excellent heat management
  • Great audio quality

CONS

  • Has only 8GB RAM
  • Storage is very little with just 8GB

The one we chose doesn't feature an i7 processor, but you'll get one with that too if that's more of your taste. But we are gamers and we would love to have every bit of graphics power you have to give, and if you are willing to give us a tad bit more in return for processing power we will take them with both hands open.

Core i7 with GTX 1650 Link to Flipkart
Core i5 with GTX 1660Ti

We are reviewing both together, and in terms of processing power the i7 wins. But the margin is staggeringly little, just around 10% more performant. We would easily pass on that. The i7 processor is a hexa core processor compared to the four cores which the i5 has to offer. The i7 processor has a base speed of around 2.6GHz whereas the i5 processor has 3.5GHz. So much in terms of power. But for a gaming laptop, very little is dependent on the processor and we should get to our main worry.  The graphics card.

Pitting the 1660Ti and 1650 together will result in the 1660Ti winning every time. Now the second question is, by what margin? The question is relevant because we need to make up for the lost processing power.

Nvidia 1660 Ti has 6GB of GDDR6 Frame buffer whereas the 1650 offers only 4GB. That is huge. Also when the 1660Ti offers a memory speed of 12 GBps, Nvidia 1650 manages a speed of just 8GBps. Bench-marking both of them shows that the Nvidia 1660Ti has an effective speed of around 82% more than 1650. All these makes the 1660Ti the clear winner.

When it comes to rest of the details, both of them are identical offering 16GB of RAM and 1 TB of SSD storage. Both RAM and storage can be upgraded and we feel is enough.

The ROG Strix is a brilliant laptop missing one major feature. The thin bezels which makes the laptop look so good, has made it impossible for the laptop to have a webcam. This means that the laptop doesn't have a webcam. For an extremely premium laptop we feel, they should have had cramped it in somehow.

We found this laptop to be extremely elegant and powerful and would have chosen it the best laptop under 100000, if it had a better graphics card. But then can't complaint, it captivates with its looks.

PROS

  • Excellent bezel-less display
  • Audio quality is amazing for a laptop

CONS

  • No webcam

Another great laptop under 1 lakh. This laptop is a sturdy laptop which is excellent for gaming. The laptop looks great and has an excellent build quality. It oozes prefection in every corner.

The Lenovo Legion Y540 is powerd by a 9th generation Intel core i7-9750H processor with a base speed of 2.6GHz and turbo boost of 4GHz. This amount of performance is enough for all the latest gaming titles that are available in the market currently. The laptop's performance in the CPU department is solid and we couldn't find any fault with it at this price range.

The processor  is paired with Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti. The graphics card is from a newer generation which is built on top of Turing architecture. The graphics card has 6GB of video ram which means, it can store a lot of frames to prevent any lag while gaming. The laptop is a powerhouse meant to play the latest titles.

Another one of the things which we loved about the laptop is the cooling capabilities. The laptop is able to maintain consistent temperatures even after hours of gaming.

The laptop has 16GB of RAM which is upgradable up to 32 GB. 16GB suffices for all gaming needs, and needs to be upgraded if you do heavy video editing or similar tasks.

For storage the laptop has 2 drives. An SSD which can store 256GB of data. The SSD will help you in lower boot times, and higher performance. Booting from the SSD will result in extremely lower boot times compared to an HDD.

You can store all of your random stuff like movies in the bigger 1 TB HDD. This way it is cost efficient and you get lots of storage.

Overall this is a great laptop and a good buy.

PROS

  • Lots of storage with an SSD and HDD
  • Powerful graphics

CONS

  • Battery life is relatively low

This is the list of the best gaming laptops under 1 lakh in India.

A guide to picking the best gaming laptop under 100000

Lesson 1: Picking up a processor

It's i7 and always i7 when it comes to gaming. Who doesn't know that? I mean unless you have pockets deep enough to get an i9.

But, the thing is, not all i7's are the same.

Have you noticed that there are a lot of letters and numbers after the i7? What are they there for?

Let's take an example i7-7700K. The first 7 after the i7 shows the generation, so this is a 7th generation processor. And newer the generation, the better it is. There is an exception to the first digit showing generation, which is for tenth generation, obviously is 10 (2 digits).

The next three digits are just for SKUs says Intel. They are for stock keeping purposes used by intel internally. That's one less thing to worry about.

Then comes the letters. k stands for unlocked, which means you can overclock it. And if it is a T it means power optimised. These are for full size processors.

For laptops, H stands for high performance graphics, HK means high performance graphics and unlocked, so you can overclock. HQ is high performance graphics and quad core. U is for ultra low power.

Now you know all these, you are ready to pick the processor on your laptop.

Get a Ryzen if you're brave
Get a Ryzen if you're brave

Umm, if you're going for AMD, do a comparison on CPU benchmark or similar website. That way you'll find the best.

If you still didn't get it, read this article on which CPU should you buy?

Lesson 2: Picking up a graphics card

Anything greater than GTX 1660 is great. If you can get your hands on an RTX one, brilliant.

Go big on graphics card
Go big on graphics card

The first one on our list is an RTX one, and belive us when we say buy that. Just blindly buy that one. That's the best spec we have seen at around 1 lakh. And nothing can beat that at being the best gaming laptop under 1 lakh.

What is RTX? The RT in RTX stands for Ray Tracing. This is a cool technology. Let us explain what it is. When you play a game, what you  actually see is a series of images back to back which gives you the illusion of a video.

In traditional gaming systems, if there was light source on your back, then the shadow will obviously fall in front of you, and that was it. If you keep a mirror in front of you, and make the light to reflect back, then your front won't be illuminated. This was because, the path of the light is not traced beyond hitting the first surface.

But in animated movies and all, you might have seen the light coming reflected from the mirrors also. What Ray Tracing technology does is the same, it shows the reflections also.

Honestly if we had to buy a laptop at this price range, we will go with ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DV.

New RTX 30 series graphics card has been released recently and this should bring down the price of RTX 2060 laptops down.

Lesson 3: RAM, more the merrier

Go for 16GB RAM. That's the best.

Go bigger on RAM
Go bigger on RAM

8GB RAM also works, and since it is upgradable, we wouldn't worry much about it. I mean, you can get one any day you want.

And if you get 32GB of RAM. wow.

Lesson 4: Storage

Here more is not exactly merrier. Unless it is an SSD.

Get an SSD. Don't compromise on this. Defenitely get an SSD.

Always get an SSD
Always get an SSD

If you have a slot to put HDD, you can cramp in a 1TB or 2TB HDD. But otherwise, defenitely go for an SSD.

Lesson 5: Screen size

15" screens work. But if you think you need more go for 17". But at the end of the day, it is a personal choice.

Going for a bigger one will get you a bigger keyboard also. So if you are a fan of getting a larger keyboard, defenitely go for 17".

And defenitely get a monitor
And defenitely get a monitor

If you are going to get a monitor and a seperate keyboard, and want a laptop just because you want to carry it around, then we would prefer you get a smaller one. Get a huge monitor, and a mechanical keyboard so that you can play all day long and not damage your membrane keyboard on the laptop.

Oh, and while you're at it, don't forget to buy a cool mouse.

Lesson 6: Battery life

Gaming laptops generatlly have very little battery life. But if you have to move constantly get a laptop with a decent battery life. you might have to sacrifice a bit of performance, but you won't have to search for the plug whenever you have to meet someone for an hour.
