With time, the gaming laptop market has become segmented. You can choose from the budget, mid-range, or flagship categories. And here, we’ve compiled a list of the best midrange gaming laptops under NPR 150000 (1.5 lakhs) currently available in Nepal.

How to choose a gaming laptop under NPR 150000 in Nepal?

Let’s first start with the things that you should consider before buying a mid-range gaming laptop. At this price range, you should not settle for GTX graphics like 1650. You can even get laptops with the latest RTX 30-series GPU with hardware-based Ray Tracing and DLSS AI super-sampling.

As for CPU, you can go with either Intel or AMD as long as you are getting the H-series processors (Intel 12th Gen/Ryzen 6000 series and newer). Instead, pay more attention to RAM and storage. Most gaming laptops under Rs. 1.5 lakh in Nepal ship with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD, which is not enough for gaming in the long run. So, upgrade to 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD whenever you can, even if it means going over the budget by a bit.

120Hz screens are common, but unless you are into competitive gaming, higher refresh rates should not bother you much. Most laptops in this price range come with panels with 250 nits of brightness and 45% of NTSC coverage. Things like portable form factor, metal body, and RGB backlighting are rare.
