When it comes to gaming, we all know PC is king if you want to achieve the best graphics from your system and also have the best experience. However, not everyone can afford an awesome gaming rig or have the capabilities to have one in their dorm room. We are often on the move or live in a dormitory where it is virtually impossible to build a PC. Over the past year, some of the most powerful laptops that deliver a great gaming experience have launched in India. These laptops have incredibly powerful GPUs and some attract a hefty price tag as well. Many brands such as Dell, HP, ASUS, and Acer have launched their gaming laptops for the Indian market. Here are our top picks of laptops that we feel are good enough for a kickass gaming experience:
Alienware 15 R3 – Rs 1,53,282
The new Alienware 15 has Intel’s Kaby Lake processors and a graphics card by Nvidia that can give desktop PCs a run for its money. The Alienware 15 R3 is one of those laptops that will be easily noticed in a room. It has a distinct look and gives a futuristic feel thanks to all the LEDs. The laptop lights up like a Christmas tree. The Alienware 15 R3 has the i7-7700HQ processor which has become the norm for most gaming laptops, but the Alienware surpasses other laptops thanks to the GPU on board. The Alienware 15 R3 comes with a powerful NVIDIA GTX 1070 and it had higher graphics benchmark scores than any other from the same category.
Acer Predator Helios 300 – Rs 75,990
The Acer Predator Helios 300 was launched by the company in 2017 and come with a 15.6-inch screen. It houses the 7th generation of Intel Core i7 Processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM and NVIDIA GeForce 1060 GPU. It’s currently available on a discount on Flipkart and is probably a steal in our honest opinion. Heat management is done thanks to two inbuilt fans. The moment you start playing a heavy game, the dual fans speed up to cool off the components inside with much ease. For storage, you have a combination of a 1TB HDD from Toshiba and a 128GB SSD from Intel.
HP Omen 17 – INR 99,000
The HP Omen 17 is one of the most underrated gaming laptops on the list. One doesn’t necessarily associate HP with a gaming laptop brand however the Omen 17 is a powerful VR ready gaming laptop. The device is powered by 7th generation Intel Core i7 7700HQ Quad Core processor having a clock speed of 2.8 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.8 GHz. It is outfitted with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1070 GPU and has 16GB DDR4 RAM. At the moment, the laptop has a hefty discount on Amazon and you can get it for INR 99,000.
ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX 501 – INR 2,99,999
The ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX 501 is probably the latest offering from the company that has blown minds away with its performance. Seriously, this laptop is nuts when it comes to delivering a great gaming experience. The laptop is probably the most expensive gaming laptop on our list, but it does a fairly good job. It has a 15.6-inch full-HD display and is powered by the 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080 GPU and 16GB of RAM. The laptop comes with a hefty price tag i.e. Rs 2,99,999. Sure many will complain that one can make an amazing gaming PC rig for that price, however, if you are always on the move and still want to play your games with high-quality graphics, you should consider this as an option.
Dell Inspiron 15 7567 Gaming – INR 1,10,490
Dell is the same company that makes Alienware laptops and rest assured, they brought over that expertise to their Inspiron lineup as well.
