Best Budget Gaming Laptops in 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, this is no longer the case. The prices of laptops have gone up since the beginning of the Pandemic. Thus, you need to spend at least 1 lakh to 1.2 lakhs for a decent budget gaming laptop in Nepal. 

How to buy a budget gaming laptop in Nepal?

In this list of the best budget gaming laptops, you should at least expect a Full HD IPS display with a 120Hz refresh rate. If you get lucky, you can even find some old gaming laptops on sale with 144Hz and support for variable refresh rates. But be wary of TN panel screens with limited viewing angles.

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

Now, you can easily get budget laptops with the latest 13th Gen Intel Core i5-13420H processor. Over on the graphics, you will most likely encounter RTX 3050 or even RTX 4050 if you are extremely lucky. As such, we recommend going with the RTX graphics even if it costs a bit more because of the extra performance and RTX-exclusive features like Ray Tracing and DLSS.

You should also pay attention to aspects such as build and thermals. That being said, RGB backlighting should not be a top priority when choosing a budget gaming laptop. Also, make sure the laptop you are purchasing is a genuine one. For this, always opt for reliable and reputed stores whenever possible, even if it means paying some extra bucks.
