As far as laptops go, we have the best options available right now. A laptop with an ancient i5 processor with 4GB of RAM doesn’t really qualify as a top gaming laptop despite being able to technically run most games. You would want the best gaming laptop in Nepal to master latest games available. But, if you are among the ones to do that, you would know the gut-wrenching experience of stuttering dialogues and slow frame rates. This article explores the choices for a decent gaming laptop that suits different budgets and performance needs. So, without any further delay let’s take a look at the list of best gaming laptops in Nepal.
Best Gaming Laptops in Nepal
Asus is a familiar name in the laptop market. The ‘Republic of Gamer’ series of ASUS laptops is one of the best at an expensive price range of over NRs. 2 lakhs. The ASUS FX53VD-MS72 is a less powerful laptop than the elite Asus laptops, but that doesn’t mean it underperforms. Packed with an i7 7th gen processor, 8GB RAM, and a 2GB Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU, this laptop can run most of the AAA titles without any stutter.
Asus has designed this laptop to feel and look good, and there are no complaints about the laptop’s build. It also sports a wide-angle 1080p TN panel display; a standard for gaming. But, you may not want to heavily rely on this display for more color accurate work like professional photo editing.
(256GB SSD, 8GB RAM variant) [Rs. 1,05,000]
Dell 7567 is the latest member of Dell’s Inspiron 15 budget gaming series. This particular variant comes with a 7th gen i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and a powerful 4GB GTX 1050Ti graphics adapter. This looks like a step back from the previous option on this list, but it is still capable of running most power-hungry games with great visuals. The major advantage lies in the larger 4GB 1050Ti graphics, that can render more textures and shadows on first-person shooters and adventure games.
Recent games like Battlefield 1 and Middle Earth: Shadow of War comes to mind. The processor is more than able to handle these intense games, and when it’s paired with such a high-end graphics, it will be enough for most hardcore gamers.
The laptop does lack a large storage and instead packs a 256 GB SSD perfect for gaming, but not enough for multimedia storage. This is easily solved by using an external hard drive, easily found at around 10k for a minimum 1TB storage.
Acer Predator Helios 300 G3-571-77QK
Helios 300 is a heavy gaming laptop from Acer’s Predator lineup, that boasts cutting-edge hardware for gaming. The spec sheet alone clarifies what this beast is capable of. Rocking an i7-7700HQ processor with 16GB RAM and the latest Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics, the laptop can run almost any graphics intensive AAA games with high frame rates and high graphics quality. The laptop’s graphics card is even capable of running some games at 4k at the expense of slower frame rates, especially if you have maxed out the graphics settings.
Paired with a 256GB SSD, same as the Dell 7567, the laptop can fit 2-3 heavy games along with the operating system and personal files. As mentioned before, you should get a separate hard disk, if you want that extra storage.
Acer Aspire E5 573G 75NG
Budget Option [Rs. 84,000]
Acer Aspire E5 is more suited for casual gamers. This laptop is, by no means, a gaming laptop, but can essentially be used as one. It packs an i7-7500U processor and a Nvidia 940MX graphics. The i7 processor in this laptop is less powerful than the ones mentioned above. The i7-7700HQ processors are approx. 30% more powerful than i7-7500u. Although, the processor performs regular desktop activities like word processing and multimedia well, but lack more in gaming. The laptop, though, can run most games like Dota 2 and Counter-Strike, etc. However, expect some low frame rates and low graphics details in games like heavy Battlefield 1.
The Acer Aspire E5 packs 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD for storage. Besides gaming, the laptop can handle most computing needs quite well without any stutters or lags. The Aspire E5 is also a well-built laptop with a metal design mated with a smooth finish, though, it lacks the ‘gaming’ red and black aesthetics giving it more of a general look and feel.
These are our top choices for a gaming laptop, and we prefer SSD over a hard disk due to its effect on gaming here. If gaming is not the major agenda for buying a laptop, you might want to consider the ones with a hard disk. I would choose the Asus FX53VD if I were to buy a laptop right now. Let us know which laptop suits you the best in the comments.
