Gaming laptops have seen a growth in demand since the pandemic began. While some people are buying affordable gaming laptops just to sit and home and play games casually, others are buying them as a regular device that can work for the entire family. While budget gaming laptops may not be targeted at the most serious gamers, they can still be excellent for multitasking. They can be used for gaming, streaming content, lots of browsing and even your work and education from home needs. So, if you’re on the market for a gaming laptop under Rs. 100000, here are the best ones to buy.

Asus ROG Zephyrus G14
Price: Rs 98,990
While Asus makes all kinds of laptops nowadays, it made its name by making budget laptops that others couldn’t. The Asus ROG Zephyrus G14, in many ways is the fruition of a journey the company began all those years ago. You get a 14-inch display with 120Hz refresh rate and AMD’s Ryzen 5 4600HS processor, with a minimum of 8GB RAM and a 512GB SSD inside. You also get the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650Ti 4GB GDDR6 graphics card to boot.
You don’t get the best versions of this device under the Rs. 1 lakh price bracket, but the ones you do will do the job. This one may not run every game at the highest setting possible, but it will certainly handle some.
Lenovo Legion 5
With budget laptops selling fast, companies are battling harder too. At this price, the Lenovo Legion 5 will come with a Ryzen 7 processor from AMD and a 15.6-inch full-HD display. You get 8GB of RAM and 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD. The HDD might be troublesome for those who don’t store their games right, so you need to be a tad smart about it. The graphics chip remains the same as the Zephyrus 14, so you’re looking at similar performance from that particular aspect. Yes, you get a 120Hz refresh rate too.
Asus ROG Strix G15
Price: Rs 89,999
This is where things start to get really interesting. The Asus ROG Strix G15 is priced somewhere between the two laptops mentioned above, but some may prefer this one for the display’s 144Hz refresh rate alone. It matches its predecessors with respect to the remaining hardware. It has 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650Ti graphics, a 512GB SSD inside and 8GB of RAM.
Acer Nitro 5
While the version we mentioned here costs close to Rs. 80,000, the Acer Nitro 5 can be cheaper if all you do is really casual gaming. A cheaper version of this will cost you less than Rs. 75,000, but you will be giving up the 144Hz display refresh rate. If you don’t want to do that, the one we linked above has a 15.6 inch full-HD display and high refresh rate. It has the same graphics chip as the other laptops on this list and the same storage configuration as the Lenovo Legion 5.
Dell G3 3500
Price: Rs 72,990
If you don’t want to miss out on high screen refresh rate, but can’t afford the other laptops on this list, the Dell G3 3500 is a decent compromise.
It has a 15.6 inch full-HD display with 120Hz refresh rate and the same storage configuration as the Acer Nitro 5 and Lenovo Legion 5. You get the GTX1650 graphics chip with this one instead of the Ti variant.
