1. Asus FX705DT

 Overall Best Pick
  • Best for all-around performance
  • 17.3-inch widescreen 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 FX705DT is one of the best laptops that money can buy under a budget of Rs.70,000.

Processor and Performance

This machine features an AMD Ryzen 7 3750H 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 upgradability, 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 17.3-inch full HD display is the largest-sized 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.

Asus has provided a 512GB SSD drive with this premium laptop.

This elevates the performance of this laptop to the next level.

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 FX705DT 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.

Runner-Up Pick
  • Stylish design
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Powerful processor and GPU

The Lenovo IdeaPad L340 is a flagship Ideapad Laptop that is priced well under Rs.70,000.

For those users who are looking for a device that is capable of satisfying all their performance indices, this one will be a perfect choice.

Design and Build Quality

We have said it before and will continue to say that Lenovo makes some of the best looking laptops currently in the country.

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. The screen flex is minimal and won’t be a problem in day-to-day usage.

The Lenovo Ideapad L340 has an island-style keyboard with a separate number pad for those who are used to the full-sized desktop keyboards. The keys are large, spacious and offer great typing experience.

The special painting on this laptop makes it less susceptible to scratches and colour fading over time.

Display

The Lenovo Ideapad L340 features a 15.6-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS display. The visuals are adequately colourful and rich in details.

The anti-glare coating on the screen helps it to prevent reflections from the display. This greatly enhances the viewability and reduces stress on your eyes.

The bezels around the display are minimal and blend well with the rest of the elegantly crafted build.

Processor and Performance

Performance is another area where this budget laptop excels. The Lenovo Ideapad L340 is powered by the newer 9th Generation Intel Core i5 – 9300H processor clocked at 2.4GHz which can turbo boost up to 4.1GHz.

With Turbo Boost technology-enabled, the processor will run at minimal power when idle and when something resource-intensive is launched, the cores will run at the higher clock speed to ensure smooth performance.

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.

Accompanying the processor is a dedicated 4GB DDR5 Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics card.

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.

Miscellaneous

The dual speakers on this laptop are certified by Dolby and give out a loud sound output.

Running on Windows 10 Home edition out of the box, this laptop comes with a 12-month free McAfee Livesafe antivirus subscription.

Battery Life

Powered by a 2-cell Li-ion battery, the Lenovo Ideapad L340 can last up to an impressive 5 hours on a single charge.

Verdict

The Lenovo Ideapad L340 priced under Rs.70,000 is an overall package with great battery life, build quality and performance.

Value for Money Laptop

  • Guaranteed performance 
  • Excellent thermal control

MSI is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer best known for releasing feature-rich products into the market with an affordable price tag.

The GF63 9RCX is the company’s ‘premium budget’ performance-oriented laptop currently on sale in India under Rs.70,000.

Design and Build Quality

The MSI GF63 9RCX shows its might, not only in performance but also in its build quality.
The metallic chassis with a brushed metal finish and sharp lines deliver a gaming vibe to this powerful laptop.

The red and black dual-tone colour scheme matches the gaming flair and looks premium.

With the clever hardware design, MSI has managed to shave a lot of thickness on this laptop when compared with their previous models.

The keyboard deck is solid and there is no sort of flex while pounding the keys during intense gaming sessions.

The keyboard is backlit with a single red colour illumination. The keys feel nice and tactile. There is a slight flex in the keyboard chassis but nothing that affects the usability of the device.

With ample exhaust vents placed all around the chassis, MSI has succeeded in keeping the internal temperature in control without throttling the performance of the processor inside.

Processor and Performance

This laptop runs the show with an 8th-generation Intel Core i9 9300H processor clocked at 2.4GHz with a maximum turbo boost frequency up to 4.GHz.

The processor is a true quad-core variant with excellent performance even when the device is run under full load. Assisting this processor in delivering stellar performance is a 4GB DDR5 NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050Ti GPU.

This powerful GPU also aids in fast and responsive 4K video editing. The device comes with 8GB DDR4 RAM onboard with an option to expand up to 32GB.

In terms of storage, this laptop comes with 512GB SSD for faster data speeds and performance.

Display

The display on this device is a 15.6 inch Full HD LED Backlit wide-view display which has good viewing angles with no noticeable colour tone difference when viewed from different angles.

The brightness of this panel is great and the anti-glare coating further increases the legibility of the display in brightly lit environments.

Furthermore, the screen can be calibrated according to your individual preference with the help of MSI Dragon centre app.

Speakers and Battery Life

Four downfacing speakers produce loud sound output. The audio from the laptop lacks punch.

The battery of this device lasts for about 4 hours on a single charge under normal usage and if you’re gaming or doing some heavy rendering, the battery drains much faster.

Verdict

The MSI GF63 9RCX is a budget performance laptop priced just under Rs.70,000.

If you’re tight on budget but isn’t ready to compromise on power, this is the right choice for you at present in the Indian market.

Best Build Quality
  • Fast 512GB SSD storage
  • Band & Olufson audio
  • Powerful processor

The Pavilion series has been a runaway hit for HP with its great specs at reasonable price segments.

The new Pavilion 15 is lurking in the premium laptop segment with some of the best in class internals and loaded with features that will attract customers for sure.

Build Quality and Design

The new HP Pavilion follows the design principles set by previous pavilion laptops priced under Rs.60,000.

But the one thing that sets this device apart from the rest is the all-new black and green accent that the company has now chosen over the popular red and black option.

The already good build quality of the previous generation pavilion notebooks now has elevated into a whole new level that isn’t just good but great.

The matte finish on the chassis feel-good to touch and the overall colour scheme looks pretty cool.

The hinge mechanism of this laptop is one of the robust factors and works pretty well even at times with a single hand.

Processor and Performance

Inside the beautifully crafted chassis is a ninth-generation Intel Core i5-9300H processor that is one of the latest offerings from Intel to the performance mobile computing market.

This processor in itself is capable of running the most demanding of apps without any hassles.

There is 4GB DDR5 Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU inside the chassis for that significant extra oomph when it comes to gaming and graphics-intensive tasks.

The 8GB DDR4 RAM gives enough leeway to perform multiple tasks simultaneously.

This laptop comes with a primary 512GB SSD. The presence of an SSD makes this laptop boot faster and run quicker.

Display

The 15.6-inch display on this laptop is one of the best in class, we’d have to admit.

This full HD panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels has amazing clarity and colour accuracy that will get you hooked up to this laptop in case you love to watch movies on your laptop.

The not so thick bezels around the screen make it look even larger and provides an immersive viewing experience.

When it comes to gaming, the 60Hz display provides a smooth full HD experience that feels buttery smooth without any frame skippings in between.

Miscellaneous

The green keyboard backlighting is a sort of unique thing when it comes to this laptop. It feels refreshing and somewhat pleasing to the eyes.

The Bang & Olufsen tuned speakers are placed in the front keyboard deck facing the user and sound loud and clear.

The new improved design of internal Wi-Fi antenna provides you with the best possible signal reception resulting in guaranteed network connectivity within a certain possible range.

Battery Life

With a 3-cell Li-ion integrated battery inside, the HP Pavilion 15 can last for about 5 hours on a single charge.

The built-in HP fast charge technology will help you to juice up the battery up to 90% in just under 90 minutes.

Verdict

The HP Pavilion is a great performance oriented laptop that can double up as a capable media consumption device.

The brand name and the nation-wide service network is yet another reason for you to consider purchasing this laptop.

  • 128GB SSD
  • Macho design and form factor

The Acer Predator Helios 300 is an entry-level gaming laptop representing the performance-oriented Helios series.
This macho machine packs in some serious punch in terms of hardware internals which performs on par with the other counterparts in the similar price league.

Design and Build Quality

The Predator Helios 300 is designed to look like a macho laptop with sharp curves and accent lines.

The company chose to design this laptop in such a way that the importance is given for the function rather than the aesthetic beauty.

The black coloured chassis with red inserts in between looks fantastic and blends well with the overall design strategy.

Acer has given practicality and durability over aesthetic beauty with this laptop.

The thick bezels around the screen and bulky body might not impress the purist in you, but with the performance, it sure will.

Easy hardware upgradability is one of the key aspects of this laptop. You can easily swap storage or RAM modules, even if you don’t have any prior experience doing so.

The metallic finish keyboard C deck is strong and offer excellent durability and comfort while gaming as well as typing rigorously.

Processor and Performance

The Acer predator Helios 300 is powered by the powerful Intel Core-i5 8300H

Acer has managed to include a state of the art 4GB DDR5 Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050Ti GPU on this laptop.

This GPU in conjunction with the powerful true quad-core processor exceeds our expectations in performance – be it with gaming or during the day to day productivity tasks.

The 1TB HDD plus 128GB SSD combination works well to ensure a lag usage experience with this premium mid-range laptop.

Display

The Acer Predator Helios 300 features a 15.6-inch full-HD IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

This display has a locked-in 60Hz refresh rate for ultra-smooth video and game playback.

Refresh rate denotes the number of frames the screen can display per second. The higher this number, smoother will be the visuals.

The colours appear vivid and vibrant with sharp and clear details on visuals as well as static images and text.

The bezels around the display are thick, but will soon get used to and pose no problem in the long run.

Miscellaneous

The keyboard on this device has a blue backlight that adds to the overall design flair of the laptop.

The keys are sufficiently spaced and have a rubber feel to it. The size of the numpad keys is a bit smaller than the rest of the keys on the keyboard though.

The anti-ghosting technology prevents accidental keypresses effectively, which is a bliss for those who use shortcuts while editing videos or pre-assigned keys while gaming with this laptop.

Battery Life

The battery on this laptop is a 4-cell Lithium-ion pack which will last up to 4 hours on a single charge and expect this to drop further while performing processor intensive tasks such as gaming.

Verdict

The Acer Predator Helios 300 offers excellent value for money performance and durability for a device under Rs.60,000.
