Best Budget Gaming Laptops in Nepal [Updated 2022]

Best Budget Gaming Laptops Nepal 2022

Are you thinking of getting a gaming laptop in Nepal, but don’t have a deep pocket. Don’t Worry! We have got you covered. While one could easily get decent budget gaming laptops under 1 lakh in previous years, such is not the case now. Due to the ongoing chip shortage prices of laptops have gone up. Thus, you need to spend at least 1.2 or even 1.3 lakh for a decent budget gaming laptop in Nepal. 

The current market situation

In this list of the best budget gaming laptops, you should at least expect a Full HD IPS display with a 60Hz refresh rate. However, you can even find higher laptops with higher refresh rate screens but most of them have TN panels.

Don’t expect the display to be color accurate or to be ideal for professional graphic designers and colorists. Likewise, for around 1.2 lakh, you should be able to get enough horsepower to run the latest AAA games in low or medium settings.

Here, you should easily get an AMD Ryzen 5000-series gaming CPU. Similarly, on the graphics front, you should either get the GTX 1050, 1050Ti, or 1650 GPU. Since Nvidia GTX 1650 is the newer version, it is marginally faster than the other two.

You should also look be paying attention to aspects such as build and thermals. That being said, things like RBG backlighting should not be a top priority when choosing a budget gaming laptop.
