Best Gaming laptops in Nepal under Rs 2 lakh

In this article, we’ll be discussing the best gaming laptops under NPR 2 lakhs you can currently buy in Nepal. For most people looking to buy a competent gaming laptop in the country, this is the sweet spot. If your budget is around 1 lakh or 1.5 lakhs, we have a separate buyers’ guide for that as well.

How to choose the best gaming laptops under Rs. 2 lakhs in Nepal?

When searching for a decent gaming laptop under 2 lakh, you should be looking for one that’s capable of running AAA titles smoothly under medium-high graphics settings. Besides this, seeing how we’re hunting for a gaming laptop, your choice has to feature a high refresh rate screen as well. At least 120Hz and maybe higher.

Manufacturers usually compromise on the color accuracy side of things in terms of affordable gaming laptops but 100% sRGB should be fine for most cases. To make sure you face no issues when it comes to multitasking, at least 16GB of RAM is a must and you should shy away from those with just HDD storage. With that out of the way, let’s take a look at the best gaming laptops under 2 lakhs in Nepal.

Best gaming laptops under 2 lakhs in Nepal [2023 Update]

8Asus ROG Strix G15 (2022)

Asus ROG Strix G15 (2022) Design and Display

Asus ROG Strix G15 (2022) is not your typical gaming laptop. The Armor Caps and the Aura Sync-compatible lightbar make it stand out among other gaming laptops. There is even a glowing RGB logo on the lid. This laptop features a 15.6-inch LCD screen with a 144Hz refresh rate.

It is the only laptop with the latest Ryzen 6000-series gaming CPU on this list. Asus has opted for the Ryzen 7 6800H processor which is paired with 16GB of DDR5 RAM and 512GB SSD storage. The one major drawback here is the RTX 3050 GPU, which is a little underwhelming given most laptops in this price range come with RTX 3060.

7Dell G15 5520 (2022)

Dell G15 5520

In the sixth position, we have the 2022 edition of the Dell G15 (5520). This is a budget gaming laptop from Dell that borrows a thing or two from the company’s premium Alienware gaming brand. Take the design for an example; the elongated rear and the orange accented branding are also design cues from the Dell G15. Another dead giveaway is the Alienware Command Center that comes pre-installed with the G15 — giving users the flexibility to tune the raw performance and cooling fans per convenience.

In terms of specifications, it packs the 12th Gen Intel Core i7-12700H CPU. This is paired with the RTX 3070 Ti from NVIDIA. The new G15 ships with 16GB of the latest DRR5 RAM and 512GB of M.2 SSD. There is also a smooth 120Hz FHD screen to enjoy games on.

6Acer Nitro 5 (2021)

Acer Nitro 5 2021 Design

Acer Nitro 5 is a bit of a misfit among all the laptops in this list of best gaming laptops under Rs. 200,000 as it is the only 2021 model to appear here. The main downside to the Acer Nitro 5 is the processor. You can buy this laptop with either Intel Core i5-11800H or Ryzen 5800H. Irrespective of the choice, the laptop is a bit outdated, especially considering the benefits that Intel has brought on the Alder Lake CPUs with the hybrid architecture.

That said, this laptop offers RTX 3070, which no other 2022 models offer in Nepal, at least under Rs. 2 lakh mark. It features a 15.6-inch FHD model with a 144Hz refresh rate. The look is still that of a traditional gaming laptop, which is slowly fading away in relevancy. That said, Nitro 5 (2021) still holds a good value for its asking price today.

Next on our list of the best gaming laptops under Rs. 2 lakh in Nepal is the 2022 iteration of the Asus TUF Dash F15. It is the more affordable of the Asus TUF Dash F15. Thus, the overall specifications remain the same. You get the latest Intel H-series CPU, which in this case, is the Core i7-12650H. It is paired with a capable budget GPU in the form of RTX 3050. This year’s model also brings the MUX Switch, allowing users to cut off the bottlenecks caused by the integrated GPU in the visual pipeline.

The 15.6-inch screen refreshes at 144Hz and brings support for Adaptive-Sync. Like most TUF Gaming series, this one also has military-grade durability certifications and features like Dolby Atmos. In addition, getting the Asus TUF Dash F15 from official distributors will make you eligible for 2 years of international warranty and free goodies.

4Lenovo Legion 5 (2022)

Lenovo Legion 5 Design and Display

The third position in our list goes to the Lenovo Legion 5 (2022). This is the kind of laptop that needs to introduction. Lenovo’s Legion lineup has been garnering love and appreciation from fans and critics alike for being among the best-performing laptop in recent times. The 2022 edition of the laptop comes with Ryzen 7 6800H processor which works in tandem with RTX 3050 Ti from NVIDIA which is configured at 95W. The thermal on the Legion 5 is also among the best of any gaming laptop.

The laptop is well built despite all the plastic except on the lid. It houses a 165Hz IPS screen with support for both FreeSync and G-Sync. Moreover, the 15.6-inch panel has 100% sRGB coverage and boasts Dolby Vision and DC Dimmer.

3Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 (2022)

Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 2022 Design

This brings us to the Legion 5’s smaller sibling, the IdeaPad Gaming 3, sitting comfortably in the second position. Lenovo has made the relationship between its premium and budget gaming lineup more obvious with the new design changes on the IdeaPad Gaming 3. The 2022 iteration of the laptop now comes with an elongated rear, which houses two vents and most of the laptop’s ports. There are two additional vents on the IdeaPad Gaming 4, one on each side—all colored blue.

In terms of specs, you get the Intel Core i7-12700H and 105W RTX 3060, which is definitely a better combo than what you get in the Legion. Likewise, you get a 165Hz IPS panel with 100% sRGB and 300 nits of brightness, matching the Legion 5.

Still, there is a reason IdeaPad Gaming 3 (2022) offers all this at the same price as the Legion 5. While it is not a bad device in itself, the IdeaPad Gaming 3 does lose out to the Legion 5 on build quality, thermals, and extra features like MUX Switch and variable refresh rate, among others.
