Best Gaming Laptops to Buy in India

Updated 09 - Dec - 2018

Not every gamer nods to the idea of playing video games on PC, but those who do, swear by PC. Once you get used to playing games at a high frame rate, there's no looking back at regular frame rates. There's something raw and natural about using a keyboard and mouse for movement and firing. There's also something about using gamer slang and acronyms that makes you feel more connected to the community of PC gamers. So, if you know to which faction you belong, and want to get yourself a gaming laptop instead of a console, this list should help you decide which one is right for you. We have tested most of these laptops, and believe firmly that these are the best for gaming in the country for now. GLHF.




Asus ROG GX800

Asus ROG GX800

Little needs to be said about the ASUS ROG GX800. It was a worthy successor to the GX700 bringing the power of two GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI coupled with an Intel Core i7 7820HK. The flagsip CPU and GPU were supported by NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 giving rise to data transfer speeds completely unheard of in consumer laptops. The GX800 comes with its own water cooling attachment to push the two GTX 1080s to their limit.

Close on the heels of the GX800 came another dual GTX 1080 gaming laptop from Acer. The Acer Predator 21 X holds practically the same configuration but has moved the water cooling system into a single chassis. While this might make it seem that the Acer Predator 21 X is compact, it really isn't. The raw power of the Predator 21 X comes with its own bulk.

MSI GT83VR 7RE Titan SLI

MSI does not have a dual GTX 1080 gaming laptop. Instead, it has the next best thing for roughly half the price of the two flagships. The GT83VR 7RE Titan SLI packs two GTX 1070 GPUs in SLI along with the Intel Core i7 7820HK. It also has a massive 18.4-inch IPS display and 32 GB of RAM. Performance wise it isn't that far behind since games can hardly make use of all the firepower it has, but synthetic benchmarks put it way behind the two flagships mentioned here.

The first thing you're going to notice about the ASUS ROG G701 is the 120 Hz display it sports. This is the best GTX 1080 laptop we've seen so far in the country and it's built to last as well. The advantage that the G701 has over other GTX 1080 laptops is that it sports a RAID 0 NVMe SSD setup. Other than that, this is powered by an Intel Core i7 7820HK CPU.

Dell Alienware 17 R4

Dell Alienware 17 R4

Dell's Alienware R4 comes really close to the ASUS ROG G701 in terms of performance. It too, sports the Core i7-7820HK + GTX 1080 commbination. Moreover, it also has a 120 Hz display panel and multiple SSDs. However, the SSDs are not configured in RAID 0. So while you lose out on a bit of synthetic performance, you do gain twice the storage space. It's a convenient trade-off in today's world where you need all the storage space that you can get.

MSI GT75VR 7RF Titan Pro

MSI GT75VR 7RF Titan Pro

MSI isn't far behind with the GT75VR 7RF Titan Pro since it too sports a 120 Hz display panel and the GTX 1080 GPU. However, it only has a single 512 NVMe SSD which results in slightly reduced data transfer speeds. However, you also save about Rs.25,000 with the GT75VR 7RF because of this. So if you can't get the G701, then the GT75VR 7RF isn't that different since gaming performance is practically the same.

Removing all the bulk from gaming laptops was the theme of 2017 and it continues to be the trend of 2018 as we see more and more laptops featuring NVIDIA's MAX-Q technology. The ASUS ROG GX501 is one such laptop featuring a GTX 1080 MAX-Q GPU along with the Intel Core i7 7700HQ. It is the world's first MAX-Q laptop and comes in a really thin form factor. However, there have been very few compromises with the GX501 since we see a 1 TB NVMe SSD and a beefy 50 Wh battery in the unit.

The second MAX-Q laptop to enter the market this year is the Acer Triton 700. It has a similar configuration as the GX501 but sports a very unique touchpad design that we have never seen before. Thanks to NVIDIA MAX-Q, the Triton 700 is a lean and mean gaming machine with a touch of flare thanks to the see through glass window on the top. Unlike the GX501, the Triton 700 comes with 2x 512 GB NVMe SSDs, and both are priced the same.
