Best gaming laptop under 150000 (1.5 lakh) in India 2021

Feb 4, 2020

Nowadays you can find a gaming laptop for almost any budget, but to find one that not just gets the stuff done, but does it in an incredible manner is hard. At 1.5 lakh you can get RTX 2060 at the very least, and an i7 processor.  But when you are shelling out money, it is better that you shell for the best. You would have mostly by now gone through a few laptops, and have something vaguely in mind. But the thing is, it is not always about the specs.

The laptop has to be one that cools efficiently and has a display that makes the best use of the graphics card in it. We can always get a gaming monitor to pair with the laptop, but let us keep that for another day.

We have build a laptop selector for you so that we can find the laptop specifically for your needs. Check it out below.

These are the best laptops under 1.5 lacs which we have reviewed.

Powered by an RTX 3060 we haven't got much to complain about this laptop. The graphics card is one of the latest offerings from Nvidia and has enough power to play all the latest titles.

The laptop features an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor. AMD has recently got a lot of good reviews and has started making better processors than Intel. Alienware which used to have just Intel-powered laptops now has a dedicated Ryzen series of laptops.

The laptop comes with 16GB of DDR4 memory which should give you enough and more juice for gaming. It should be enough for video editing and other memory-intensive tasks too.

For storage, the laptop has a 1TB SSD which is also enough for most purposes.

The keyboard on the laptop is an RGB backlit 4 zone keyboard. The laptop looks amazing with its RGB lighting.

The trackpad on the laptop has a special feature where it can also work as a Numpad.  This is a very neat feature if you crunch a lot of numbers in your day-to-day life.

The exact processor that is powering the laptop is 10750H. The 10 in the 10750 stands for the generation.

The processor is a hexa core processor with two threads per processor taking the thread count to a whopping 12.

But for us gamers, what matters most is the graphics card that comes along with the laptop. The Dell G5 features an Nvidia GeForce RTX2070 graphics card.

The laptop has 16 GB of DDR4 RAM (2x8GB). This can be upgraded and RAM sticks these days are pretty cheap. If you want to upgrade to 32GB, you can check out our article on the best RAM sticks available in the market today.

Dell hasn't cheaped out when it comes to storage and features a 1TB SSD. The SSD in the laptop is fast enough to give boot times of under 10 seconds.

The display on the laptop is a 15.6" Full HD display.

Overall we feel that this laptop is the winner and easily surpasses the Lenovo Legion Y740 which was our top choice till last month.

With the release of RTX 30 series graphics cards, the prices of gaming laptops have come down. And Lenovo Legion is one of the first laptops to offer an RTX 2070 graphics card at under 1.5 lakhs.

The laptop is powered by a 9th generation Intel Core i7-9750H processor. The processor offers excellent performance and is a hexa core processor.

The laptop as we mentioned has an RTX 2070 graphics card. The graphics card is powerful and can play all the latest titles at Ultra settings.

The laptop comes with 16GB of DDR4 RAM which helps in gaming and is enough for gaming use. For storage, the laptop has a 1TB SSD. The SSD gives high performance when the laptop is booting and for gaming. SSDs give more than 3x the speed of traditional HDDs and the performance is visible during loading of games and using booting.

The laptop weighs 2.2kg and is portable. It comes with a 1-year onsite domestic warranty which should give you enough peace of mind. Overall this is the best value for money performance laptop that's available in the market today.

4. ASUS ROG Strix Scar III G531GV

Pairing an Intel Core i7-9750H 9th Gen processor with Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics card this beast of a machine has 16GB RAM. For storage the Asus ROG Strix Scar III has 1TB SSD

Asus ROG Strix Scar offers performance that can blow your mind. It has a 9th gen intel i7 processor (6 cores) with a base speed of 2.66GHz and can go all the way up to 4.5GHz with turbo boost. The laptop has a RAM of 16GB, which is enough for most people (especially for gaming), but if you want, even more, it is upgradable to 32GB.

But the best part is, it pairs with the latest RTX 2060, to give you a great experience while gaming. It has a VRAM of 6GB (RAM dedicated to the graphics card). It also has a  15.6-inch Full HD (1920x1080) anti-glare IPS-level panel with a  refresh rate of 144Hz, 3ms. It has an 81.5% screen-to-body ratio, which means extremely thin bezels. The RGB lighting on the keyboard, and around the chassis, make it look extremely beautiful. Keys are individually lit and you can create custom effects to the keyboard, to make your gaming enjoyable.

One crazy feature that comes with this laptop, is that the touchpad works also as a number pad. It lights up and it is something, we haven't seen on any other laptop.  It comes preloaded with Windows 10 Home edition.

This laptop is our favorite laptop under 1.5 lakhs.

5. Lenovo Legion Y740

The Lenovo Legion Y740 has an Intel i7-9750H 9th gen processor along with an Nvidia RTX 2060 Graphics card. It has 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD

Though this is not the most beautiful laptop of all the laptops listed, this is the least expensive laptop of all the laptops listed and has the most value for money. If you are on a tight budget, this is the laptop you should opt for.

The Lenovo Legion Y740 features a 9th gen i7 (9750H) processor with a base speed of 2.6GHz and goes up to 4.5GHz. The Lenovo Legion has almost the same specs of the Asus, but a few 10K less.  It also has 16GB RAM and a 1TB SSD. The screen has a refresh rate of 144Hz. The screen paired with the RTX 2060, would make your gaming sessions memorable.

We loved the fact that Lenovo has decided to go with a 1TB SSD instead of traditional drives since this increases the overall speed of the laptop tremendously. We are huge fans of SSDs as they decrease the times taken for games to load as well.

The cheapness of the laptop seeps into the build of the laptop. Lighting is not customizable, but just white. There is always a price for vanity.

6. Acer Predator Helios 300

Acer Predator Helios 300 has an Intel i7-9750H 9th Gen processor and Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics card. It has a 16GB DDR4 RAM and has two hard disks. One 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD to cater to all your storage needs.

Link to Amazon

I think while naming a laptop, it should be something that goes around this one. "Predator Helios", sounds pretty awesome. It is not just the name, this one gets the work done too.

The Acer Predator Helios also, like the rest of the laptops in this list offers a 2060 RTX graphics card, 9th gen i7 processor, and 16GB of RAM. But for a change, they decided to go with only 256GB SSD and also a 1TB HDD. It features 3 USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, a type-C port, and an RJ 45 ethernet port.  Nothing too crazy fancy here.

The laptop offers a perfect combination of performance and value for money. Having an SSD and an HDD together gives a great amount of storage. All of these make the laptop more than worthy of being the best gaming laptop under 150000.

Conclusion

New RTX 30 series laptops have been released and is something to look forward to. They will definitely offer great value for money. But then they're going to be relatively more expensive. The release of new graphics cards means that the graphics card with the RTX 20 series will get cheaper by a margin.

Buying a gaming laptop is a great moment for everyone. At last, all the dreams of gaming the latest games come to life. A great amount of market research needs to be done before buying a laptop that can perform to the peak and ensure that your gaming needs are met.

All the latest gaming titles such as Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed, and so on need performance graphics cards so that you can enjoy these games the way it was meant to me. After all, what's the fun if you've to play the game in low or medium settings?

Happy Gaming. :)
