1. Acer Aspire 7 A715-75G-51H8

acer-aspire-7
Overall Best Pick
  • Powerful CPU+GPU
  • Rich connectivity options
  • Easy hardware expandability

The Aspire series is one of the popular mid-range laptop lineups from Acer. This series started as a laptop segment aimed at casual users, students and small business use.

Over the years the Aspire series has grown to include powerful performance-oriented internals that delivers exceptional performance for the asking price and with the Acer Aspire 7, what we have is a mid-range gaming laptop priced under Rs.60,000 in the Indian market.

Design and Build Quality

The Acer Aspire 7 in no way looks like a gaming laptop, it doesn’t have those LED lights popping up everywhere and the huge vents. The laptop is designed to look sleek and stylish, suitable for everyday use.

That means you can carry this laptop everywhere – to the office or college without people giving you the weird stares of carrying a gaming machine to the workplace or places with academic interest.

The laptop has a plastic body construction with a matte finish to it. The quality of construction is decent enough for the price and there is no noticeable flex anywhere on the chassis.

The hinge mechanism on the laptop is really good and thanks to the uniform weight distribution you can easily lift the display with one hand.

The keyboard on the Acer Aspire 7 is a chiclet-style one that is back-lit – not the fancy RGB or coloured LEDs but a simple yet functional white LED.

The cooling vents are located on the sides of this laptop. Do note that these vents are relatively small in size and can get extremely hot when the laptop is running at full load.

Connectivity Options

The Acer Aspire 7 features the following connectivity ports:

3.5mm headphone jack
RJ45 LAN port
USB 2.0 – 1
USB 3.2 – 2
USB Type C – 1
HDMI – 1

Processor and Performance

The processor on the laptop is the 9th generation Intel Core i5-9300H, which is one of the yesteryear mid-range flagship processors perfectly capable of handling modern games and applications with relative ease.

This processor is clocked at 2.4GHz and can turbo boost up to 4.1GHz.

Assisting the processor in graphics-intensive tasks is the overclocked 4GB Nvidia GTX 1650Ti GPU. Having a Ti series GPU on board at such a price point is a steal.

The GTX 1650Ti is a really powerful graphics card and you should be able to enjoy most of your games at high graphics settings with a constant 60fps.

The 8GB DDR4 RAM handles apps and games as well multitasking like a champ. If you want to max out the performance, Acer provides the provision to expand the RAM up to 32GB.

Speaking of storage, you get a 512GB SSD which is faster than a conventional hard disk.
The SSD will help you reduce loading times while gaming and opening applications and boot up the laptop faster.

The laptop also has stereo speakers, but they aren’t the best. It’s wise to invest in a separate Bluetooth speaker for the best audio performance.

The Aspire 7 runs on the Windows 10 Home operating system out of the box with all necessary drivers and software pre-installed.

Display

The Acer Aspire 7 has a 15.6-inch Full HD Display that will let you play your games at a crisp 1920x 1080p resolution.

The bezels on the screen are narrower on the sides so that you will have an immersive full-screen experience while gaming or watching media.

The screen also has a pretty decent brightness, you won’t be facing any issues while gaming indoors, and although this is not an IPS panel, the viewing angles are pretty decent as well.

Battery Life

The Acer Aspire 7 is powered by a 48WHr Li-ion battery that will last you up to 5 hours of screen on time with normal usage under moderate brightness levels.

With the bundled 135W AC charging adapter, this battery juices up completely within 2-2.30 hours.

Verdict

If you are looking for a premium budget laptop for gaming as well as everyday use, then the Acer Aspire 7 is the right choice for you.

This laptop is the one and the only machine in its price segment boasting of a higher clocked Nvidia 1650Ti which delivers exceptional gaming performance for the price.

Asus is an established player in the Indian laptop market with dozens of popular models starting from entry-level X series to state of the art ROG series laptops.

Design and Build Quality

The Asus VivoBook gaming has got quite a premium design and features an industrial design that will appeal to most of the users for sure.

Even though this machine is made from plastic, the metallic paint job and the textured finish renders it a premium laptop feel, both in hand and when seen from a distance.

Thanks to the professional clean design, this laptop can be carried around anywhere without publicly advertising its gaming prowess.

The robust hinge mechanism of the Asus Vivobook gaming laptop makes opening and closing the lid an easy affair.

There is no display wobbliness even when this laptop is used directly under a ceiling fan.

The dual-fan exhaust system and the wider rear vents help this laptop to have excellent thermal control, keeping the internal temperature under check.

This laptop has a full-sized chiclet keyboard with backlit functionality. The keys are well spaced and have a decent key travel distance for a comfortable typing experience.

Processor and Performance

The Asus VivoBook gaming is powered by the 9th gen Intel Core i5-9300H processor. This quad-core processor is plenty capable of handling almost all modern games and applications with ease.

The onboard 8GB DDR4 RAM handles multitasking gracefully and if you ever feel that the memory isn’t enough, there is an additional RAM slot where you can pop in an 8GB stick, making it a total of 16GB.

The 4GB Nvidia GTX1650 dedicated GPU on this machine is powerful enough to play modern games at 60fps with medium to high settings.

The device doesn’t come with an HDD built-in; instead, you get an ultra-fast 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD along with 32GB Intel Optane Memory.

So booting up your laptop is gonna be super fast and you won’t have to wait for your games to load for a long time.

Display

The Asus VivoBook gaming has a 15.6 inch Full HD 120Hz Display. Yes – you read that right. A high refresh rate display in a sub Rs.60,000 laptop is a real value for money deal.

This 120Hz refresh rate panel guarantees you to have a buttery smooth gaming visual experience. You will get to know the real difference while playing games such as Fortnite that natively support high refresh rates.

The colour reproduction of this panel is decent and so are the contrast levels. The brightness levels are average – perfect for indoor usage but hardly visible outdoors.

The side bezels on this panel are narrower, just like most of the modern laptops out there, delivering a wide view visual experience.

Miscellaneous

The built-in stereo speakers on the laptop are tuned by the famous audio equipment manufacturer Harman Kardon and you can expect clean and crisp sound output quality, even at maximum volume levels.

The Asus Vivobook gaming laptop features an integrated fingerprint scanner with Windows Hello support for biometric security to your files and folders inside.

“Windows Hello is a secure way to have instant access to your Windows-powered machine through facial recognition, fingerprint scanner or a secure PIN”.

Battery Life

Verdict

The Asus VivoBook gaming is a good choice for a gaming laptop priced under Rs.60,000.

The 120Hz refresh rate FHD display and the powerful CPU+GPU combination along with the super-fast SSD storage makes this device worthy of its asking price.

3. ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DT

asus-tuf-gaming-fx505dt
Feature Rich Laptop
  • 120Hz FHD nano edge display
  • Powerful Nvidia GPU
  • Excellent thermal control

Asus is a multinational company that was established in 1989 known for their motherboards and their high-quality PC’s, monitors, graphic cards, etc.

The Asus TUF Gaming FX505DT is Asus’s mid-range but super powerful gaming laptop priced just around Rs.60,000 in the Indian market.

Design and Build Quality

The TUF gaming laptop looks beautiful. It features plastic construction with a brushed metal texture.

Similar to the laptop designs we have discussed above, in the first glance, the TUF FX505DT doesn’t necessarily look like a gaming laptop. It looks professional and sleek.

The backplate of the laptop has a radiating X design with lines in the corners which make it look like an X, adding to the gaming flair.

The dual rear vents are big enough for expelling hot air from inside, keeping the internal temperature in check.

The Asus TUF FX505DT comes with a full-sized keyboard with a dedicated number pad. The keys have an ample travel distance of 1.8mm, providing a tactile and satisfying typing experience.

With the customizable RGB keyboard backlighting, you can change the colour to your choice with the bundled Asus customization software.

This laptop has been tested rigorously following the MIL-STD-810G toughness standard to ensure durability in the long run.

Connectivity Options

The Asus FX505DT features the following connectivity ports:

USB 2.0 – 1
USB 3.1 – 2
RJ45
HDMI 2.0
3.5mm Jack

Processor and Performance

The TUF gaming laptop from Asus is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5-3550H processor with a base clock of 2.1GHz and a maximum clock speed of 3.7GHz.

The higher variation between the base and maximum clock allows the processor to run on a varied frequency, saving power and keeping the performance metrics intact.

And for graphics, we have the 4GB Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU which is one of the most widely seen graphics cards in this price range.

Gaming with the GTX 1650 won’t be much of a problem as it should be able to handle most of the games without a hitch.

The 2400MHz 8GB DDR4 RAM works just as fine out of the box with decent multitasking and gaming performance. If you wish to squeeze out more performance, there is the provision to expand the RAM up to 32GB, which is overkill, to be honest.

In terms of storage, the Asus TUF FX505DT has a PCIe NVMe 512GB M.2 SSD with super-fast data transfer, boot-up and app loading times.

Display

The Asus FX505DT features a 15.6-inch FHD panel with a native resolution of 1920×1080 pixels.

This is a 120Hz high refresh display, which is a rarity to find in the sub.Rs 60,000 price point.

Games and media consumption will appear fluid, thanks to the silky smooth animations with zero jitters.

The viewing angles are also pretty good on the display and there are no noticeable colour shifts while watching the display from extreme angles.

The colour reproduction and contrast levels are on point. The brightness levels are very much in favour of indoor usage and since this display has an anti-glare coating, the artificial light reflections are minimal, resulting in minimal strain to the eyes.

This nano edge display has minimal bezels on the sides, allowing for more screen real estate on a thin display frame.

Miscellaneous

Asus TUF FX505DT features a dual-fan exhaust system with hyper-cool technology that dynamically controls the fan speed to keep the internal temperature in check to prevent thermal throttling and the resulting performance impact.

Even though the dual speakers on this machine are loud and clear, they are not the absolute best in terms of sound quality. It’s recommended to use a headphone while playing games.

Battery Life

The Asus FX505DT is powered by a 48WHr battery that will last you around 5 hours on normal usage.

While gaming on battery, you should expect this number to be less than 2 hours. The charger bundled in the box supports fast charging.

Verdict

The TUF gaming laptop by Asus is a beast when it comes to performance.

The high refresh rate display and the powerful processor along with the dedicated GPU makes this machine handle games and resource-intensive applications like a champ.

4. Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition

mi-notebook-horizon
Best Powerful Ultrabook
  • Durable and premium Aluminium chassis
  • Gorgeous 14-inch FHD display
  • Powerful tenth gen Intel i7 processor

Xiaomi is hugely popular in India for its smartphones. They are one of the highest-selling smartphone brands in India.

Now Xiaomi is also entering the laptop market with their Notebooks with the Mi Notebook 14 Horizon edition as their flagship product

Design and Build quality

The Mi Notebook is the only laptop in this list that has a premium metal build. This all aluminium build feels so much durable and premium in hand that words can’t describe it.

Even with this metallic chassis, the Mi Notebook Horizon 14 weighs just 1.4Kg. Carrying this ultrabook laptop in the backpack everywhere you go is a breeze.

Thanks to the amazing weight distribution done right by the Xiaomi design engineers, the hinge mechanism works so great that you can open the display lid with just one finger, as you do with Apple laptops.

The keyboard on this machine is a bit cramped, considering its small size footprint. With a key travel distance of just 1.3mm, the keyboard delivers okay typing performance, to say the least.

One thing that is lacking in this otherwise feature-packed machine is the lack of backlit keys.

The large enough touchpad on this laptop supports gesture actions and is very responsive to the touches and light taps.

Connectivity Options

The Mi Notebook Horizon edition features the following connectivity ports:

USB 3.1 – 2
USB 2.0 -1
USB Type C – 1
3.5 mm Jack
HDMI

Processor and Performance

The Mi Notebook Horizon edition is powered by a 10th generation Intel Core i7-10510U. Yes, this is what you have been waiting for, the i7 processor.

This i7 processor with the base clock speed of 1.8GHz and the maximum speed of 4.9GHz offers the best in both worlds of power efficiency and performance.

The 8GB DDR4 RAM on this machine is soldered on to the board. There is no additional expansion slot so that is what you get.

Xiaomi has added a dedicated 2GB Nvidia MX350 GPU in here that will let you play casual games with acceptable frame rates in low to medium graphics settings.

Speaking of storage, the 512GB SSD delivers exceptional performance in terms of data transfer, boot times and app loading.

Display

The Mi Notebook 14 Horizon edition has a 14-inch Full HD 1080p anti-glare display with gorgeous colours and dynamic range,

Since this display is small and has an FHD resolution, the pixel density is on the higher side, resulting in sharper and more clean visuals and text.

The thin and narrow bezels on all four sides make this 14-inch display look actually like a 15.6-inch one, which is great for immersive media consumption.

Since the display bezels are so thin, Xiaomi had decided to ship a separate web camera in the box, which offers decent quality visuals in well-lit conditions.

Battery Life

Powered by a 46WHr Li-ion battery inside, Xiaomi claims that the Mi Notebook 14 can last up to 10 hours on a single charge.

Take this with a pinch of salt and expect anywhere between 6-7 hours on real-life usage. The AC adapter bundled in the box supports fast charging and gets the battery recharged from zero hundred pretty quickly.

Verdict

The Mi Notebook 14 Horizon edition is a well built thin and lightweight laptop powered by the tenth generation Intel i7 processor along with a dedicated Nvidia MX350 GPU.

This carry anywhere, portable work station can handle casual gaming and productivity tasks such as video editing and rendering like a champ.
