No matter what the budget, be it entry-level or high-end performance segment laptops, Lenovo has managed to pull off an ace when it comes to the design.

The Lenovo Ideapad L340 has a simple design with a metallic finish on the keyboard deck and the chassis.

This processor is capable of running almost all the apps available at present with no hiccups.

With the 8GB onboard DDR4 RAM, you can easily perform computing tasks much faster than an older generation laptop.

There is a 1TB HDD inside along with a 128GB SSD for the operating system, which makes the device perform well.

This makes the laptop capable of computing tasks such as simulation and video rendering without breaking a sweat. You can even play some of the popular games with medium to high settings.

Best Gaming Laptop
  • Best for all-around performance
  • 120Hz Full HD display
  • The high-speed SSD storage

We don’t know what strategy Asus plan’s during its laptop release. The TUF series we’re discussing here matches the company’s own ROG lineup in terms of raw specs.

Whatever it is, the Asus TUF FX505DT is one of the best laptops that money can buy under a budget of Rs.60,000.

Processor and Performance

This machine features an AMD Ryzen 5 3550 processor. What does it mean for you? Smooth multitasking and gaming without considerable lags or stutters.

Is it better than an Intel Core i5 8300H?

Yes. By leaps and bounds.

With the 8GB DDR4 RAM and the endless scope of upgradeability, you can expect some class-leading performance out of this product.

On the graphics front, the 4GB DDR5 Nvidia GTX 1650 is an absolute beast in terms of performance.

Display

The 15.6-inch 120Hz Full HD display is the best display you can purchase at this price range

The colours are vivid and the brightness levels are decent. This widescreen panel offers immersive media viewing as well as gaming experience without any fail.

Miscellaneous

Speaking of port distribution, shockingly Asus has omitted the USB C port.

This came as a surprise to us because Asus is one of the few manufacturers who introduced USB C to even their entry-level laptops.

Battery Life

The battery life on this device is nothing spectacular nor particularly disappointing.

With the powerful hardware inside, this laptop lasts for a good four hours before needing to be juiced up.

Summary

Overall, the ASUS TUF FX505DT is an excellent choice for those who care for the performance output rather than the aesthetics.

This laptop features a very powerful processor coupled with equally efficient GPU that will let you do the editing and rendering tasks much easier at an affordable budget.
