Choosing a gaming laptop under NPR 150000 (Mini-Guide)

Let’s first start with the things that you should consider before buying a mid-range gaming laptop. At this price range, you can easily get laptops with GTX 1660 graphics. That being said, you should not settle with anything less than GTX 1650. If you want Ray Tracing and super-sampling, you can even find models with RTX 2060.

Nepali OEM brand Ripple also has RTX 3050 powered “Raze” gaming laptop that costs under 1.5 lakhs. But since it’s out of stock right now, we haven’t included it in our main list.

As for CPU, you can go with either Intel and AMD as long as you are getting the H-series processors (Intel 10th Gen/Ryzen 4000 series and newer). Instead, pay more attention to RAM and storage upgradeability.

120Hz screens are common but unless you are into competitive gaming, higher refresh rates should not bother you much. Most of the 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 also rare.
