How to buy a gaming laptop 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.

Asus TUF Dash F15 2022

Asus TUF Dash F15 (2022) is currently the cheapest laptop with RTX 3070 GPU. Despite being a generation old, RTX 3070 is still a strong gaming GPU, especially for laptops under Rs. 2 lakh in Nepal. Thus, we won’t have any problem running popular titles and mid and high settings. The 2022 model of the TUF Dash also brings MUX Switch, allowing users to cut off the bottleneck caused by the integrated GPU in the visual pipeline.

This is paired with the 12th Gen Intel Core i5-12450H. Likewise, it ships with 16GB of upgradeable RAM and 512GB of SSD storage.

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.

This brings us to the Acer Nitro 5 (2023). Priced at Rs. 150,000, it is the cheapest laptop on this list. It is a great deal for a gaming laptop of this caliber. You are getting an Intel Core i5-12450H processor, like the TUF Dash F15 above. As for GPU, there is RTX 4060 with a total TGP of 140W. Compared to the RTX 3070, the RTX 4060 brings a newer architecture, resulting in better efficiency and added features like support for DLSS 3. Likewise, it brings a 15.6-inch FHD display with a 144Hz refresh rate. The body is plastic, but it’s strong nonetheless.

2Lenovo LOQ

Lenovo LOQ 15 2023 - Display 2

Next, we have the Lenovo LOQ. LOQ is Lenovo’s latest venture, which will cater to budget gamers. Although it’s branded as an all-new laptop, it is not hard to see the inspiration for this laptop comes from last year’s IdeaPad Gaming 3 laptop. 

Currently, there is a single variant of Lenovo LOQ in Nepal — the one powered by Ryzen 7840HS. It is paired with RTX 4060 on the GPU front, which has a TGP of 115W. Likewise, you get a 15.6-inch screen with a respectable 144Hz.  On the downside, the screen only covers 47% NTSC gamut, so it is not that useful for designers. In addition, the laptop only supports up to 16GB of RAM, so if you need more, you will have to resort to other laptops. 

That said, Lenovo LOQ costs just Rs. 185,000 and still emerges as the better laptop in the Rs. 2 lakh price bracket.

Display 15.6-inch FHD, 144Hz refresh rate
CPU AMD Ryzen 7 778450HS (8C/16T, up to 5.1GHz)

Finally, we have the latest Acer Helios Neo 16 as the best gaming laptop, around 2 lakh in Nepal. It was initially launched for Rs. 245,000 but is now available for just Rs. 215,000. I know it is not technically a Rs. 2 lakh laptop, but the extra cash is worth spending. It is the only laptop in this list to come powered by 13th Gen Intel Core i7-13700HX. This is paired with RTX 4060, which is again the most powerful GPU you can get in this price range. In addition to its raw performance, RTX 4060, like the rest of the 40 series, boasts DLSS 3. 

As with all new Helios models, the Neo 16 also has a MUX Switch to enable dGPU mode for better performance. Elevating the gaming experience is the RGB keyboard, which also complements the Abyss Black chassis. There is nothing to complain about the build as well. Here, you get a metal lid and a plastic body.

Inside, there are two RAM slots that you can configure up to 32GB. By default, it ships with just 16GB of DDR5 RAM. Likewise, it has 1TB of storage to store all your favorite games. You can enjoy your games on a big 16-inch screen that refreshes at 165Hz. You can even use it for content creation, as it has sharp WQXGA resolution and 100% DCI-P3 color coverage.
