Gaming laptops are equipped with a number of features aimed at enhancing your gaming experience. They do, however, come at a high price, so those looking for a low-cost gaming laptop will have to make some sacrifices. A gaming laptop under 50,000 will almost certainly not have a high refresh rate panel, while gaming laptops under 50,000 and 40,000 will generally lack additional storage. In gaming laptops under 30,000, you’ll be lucky to get a competent processor or even a dedicated graphics card. So, with these budget gaming laptops, we’ve tried to maximise your gaming experience for under 60,000. The majority of them are powered by the latest 9th Gen or higher processors.
Acer Aspire 7
The Acer Aspire 7 laptop isn’t designed for gaming, but it does have the finest graphics card in the pricing sector (GTX 1650) and an Intel Core i5-9300H processor. Acer has also included a 512 GB SSD in the package. The only thing missing is a high-refresh rate panel, although given the GPU, it may be too much for most games, with the exception of a handful that are designed for high frame rates. Specifications in brief: 15.6-inch 1080p Core i5-9300H, GTX 1650, 8 GB, 512 SSD
While the ZenBook Duo’s main selling point is its dual-display, it isn’t a laptop that tries to be all things to all people. The Asus ZenBook Duo has 16GB of DDR4 RAM and is powered by Intel’s Core i7 CPUs. There’s also 1TB of fast storage and Nvidia discrete graphics to make this a real workhorse.
Acer Nitro 5
The Acer Nitro 5 is one of the most popular laptops in India, and the company has now announced a new edition with a 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10300H processor. Other SKUs of this laptop are available, but when it came on our test bench for review, we thought it was rather promising. For a long time, the Nitro 5 has been a fan favourite, and this one has everything we liked about the previous generations, including a 15.6-inch FHD display, a beautiful design, plenty of ports, a decent-sized battery, and more.
Asus VivoBook S S14
The latest 11th generation Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPU powers the Asus VivoBook S S14. This CPU has four cores and eight threads, which are more than enough to handle most office tasks. There’s also 8GB of fast DDR4 memory, 512GB of rapid NVMe storage, and 32GB Intel Optane memory to ensure that you don’t experience any slowdown. The laptop itself is extremely light, weighing only 1.4 kilos. For the money, Asus ups the value of the laptop by including an all-metal structure for a more durable design.
