    Opinion needed on purchase of an affordable gaming laptop


    Looking for an affordable gaming laptop? Our technical experts would guide you in picking up the best one.

    I am looking to buy an affordable gaming laptop. I have checked out most of the lists and few good ones have caught my eye. But I would like an expert's advice on it. I was hoping you would suggest me some good laptops meeting my requirements and also would help me select the right one for my needs by comparing and reviewing those which I find suitable. I am looking to not go above 60k but I would prefer the price to be a bit lower if it could. Also, I don't have any other requirements like battery, style, weight, company etc. As long as it performs well. Although from what I have gathered is, there doesn't seem to be much difference but between AMD and Nvidia, but do they provide different levels of performance? AMD Radeon is all 4gb but NVIDIA graphic cards that are 2gb are priced higher but isn't 4gb supposed to be better than 2gb? A bit confused there. I am looking forward to run FIFA, WWE etc. But each year with the new versions the game requirements increase so please keep that in mind and also I would like to keep this laptop for some time so it should be durable.

    Nvidia Vs AMS is a burning topic nowadays on Internet but consistently Nvidia is holding the top position so I would suggest you to go for Nvidia graphics card. Nvidia performs much faster than AMD.

    I had tried to provide you with the all available option in your price range of 60K. There are some laptops also included here with AMD graphics because they are also performing well. The price of many laptops are not mentioned in the list but they are below 60k. Have a look at the above options I think you'll definitely get what you're searching.

    But some laptops which have 4GB AMD card(Radeon series) are priced lower than 2GB NVIDIA? Does this mean 2GB NVIDIA 920 etc? Perform better than 4GB Radeon? Also, I was able to find some other good laptops in my price range that I will list for comparison after some time.

    HP 15-BE002TX
    This one seems decent.
    15.6-inch Laptop (Core i5 6th Gen/8GB/1TB/Windows 10 Home/2GB Graphic)
    But the graphic card is AMD and not NVIDIA.

    From what I have observed you have to pay few more bucks for NVIDIA than AMD so I think that it must have enough significance in performance experience so as to set a price difference between them.

    Lenovo IdeaPad 510- 15IKB (80SV001SIH) is my pick at the moment. I shall explore some more.
    HP 15-BE002TX seems unreliable so do the other HP laptops.
