When it comes to gaming laptops, it is always a good idea to look for laptops that have discrete GPUs. The ones with integrated GPUs will not be able to push playable frame rates on some of the modern titles. Hence, we think Rs 50,000 to Rs 60,000 is the sweet spot for gaming laptops to get started. If anything, the current market situation and the recent tax hike have only made things more expensive. That being said, we have managed to find some laptops that are around the Rs 50,000 price point. Some of these machines will be slightly above the Rs 50,000 mark, but we've made sure to only include the ones that we think are worth extending your budget for. So without wasting any more time, let's take a look at some of the laptops that made it to our list of the top gaming laptops under Rs 50,000
The Acer Nitro 5 has been one of the oldest names in the budget gaming laptops space, and it continues to surprise us by staying relevant to date in this category. Acer does a really good job of keeping these laptops updated with the latest hardware, so that budget gamers don't miss out on good options. This particular Nitro 5 variant is powered by a quad-core Ryzen 5 processor and has an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 to handle the graphics.
Another popular Acer laptop on the list is the Aspire 7 which comes with a quad-core Ryzen 5 3550H CPU and a GTX 1650 GPU. You don't get a high refresh rate panel but 60Hz should be enough to play and the GPU should be able to manage even the modern titles. It also comes with plenty of ports and a full-sized keyboard with a Numpad.
Even though the Mi NoteBook Horizon Edition isn't exactly a gaming laptop, it comes with a dedicated GPU that can help you put some hours into gaming. During our testing, we found out that the Comet Lake Core i7-10710U works well with the Nvidia GeForce MX 350 to put some solid numbers on the 3DMark benchmark tests.

The ASUS TUF gaming laptop's name often pops up while talking about budget gaming laptops. That's because this is one of the more affordable notebooks that get the job done for gamers on a budget. It costs slightly over Rs 50,000 but you'll often find this laptop at a discounted price, making it a really good option. The Ryzen 5 3500H and the GTX 1650 combo should get the job done for most gamers.
This is yet another laptop that costs a little higher than Rs 50,000 but is often available at a discounted price. Even at its current price, the HP Pavilion gaming laptop is plenty to play even the modern titles on a budget thanks to the Ryzen 5-3550H CPU, 8GB RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650. It also comes with a modern-looking design and upgradeability options for storage and RAM.
