Chime in: Best gaming laptop for less than $1,000?

Gaming on a laptop is a great experience, especially if you take full advantage of the portability and take the PC to LAN events. That said, choosing a laptop to game on is actually rather simple — you just need a dedicated GPU. Thing is, if you want to save money and spend less than $1,000, this is where things can get a little tricky. There are plenty of options out there, but it's all about matching the CPU, GPU and other components to a great price.

Community member hudson31 is searching for a gaming laptop for less than 70,000 rupees, which is around $1,000.

I'm looking for a gaming laptop within a budget range under 70k in rupees. I found this guide:, but still confused what to choose. Please help.


We rounded up some of the best gaming laptops available for purchase with the Lenovo Legion Y530 taking our recommended budget option at just over $1,000. This laptop isn't a slouch either, packing an Eighth Generation Intel Core i7-8750H CPU, NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti GPU, and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. Just make sure you have at least an Intel Core i5 and a GTX 10 series GPU. At least 8GB of RAM helps too.

Of course, if you don't need a laptop and the portability, save yourself even more cash and build your own gaming desktop for less than $800.
