Slide 1 - 10 best gaming laptops under Rs 1 lakh 1/11

GPUs on laptops are easy to find, but not every one of them can run graphics intensive games. To make things tougher, many of us gamers want 1080p rendering to boot, which further reduces our options. You could, of course, build a gaming PC, but that would mean you can't play on the move. So, you're left with gaming laptops, and here are the ones that qualify. Gaming laptops, in general, are not really budget-centric, but there are few machines in the market on which we think fit the bill.

We have picked 10 laptops and we're picking only the best. We are starting with the best that is available under the budget of 1 lakh and then moving down from there. This list goes from 1 lakh all the way down to 45K. We hope you find your pick.
