The RAM can be upgraded to up to 32 GB. The dual-storage feature serves as the right combination of speed for quick booting and high storage capacity to install large-sized applications.
Display-wise, the laptop has a 15.6-inch IPS panel with a Full HD resolution. The display has an Acer ComfyView LED-backlit TFT LCD with a refresh rate of 60 Hz, providing excellent viewing angles and natural color reproduction. Like other laptops in this category, it also comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home Edition.
For gaming, the laptop is equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card. It is faster than the previous generation GTX 1050 Ti.
In our gaming tests, the laptop generated 100 – 125 fps in CS GO and 65-75 fps in PUB-G at high settings. For NFS Rivals and GTA V, the frame-rate was between 50 – 55 fps at high settings.
As compared to laptops with Ryzen 5 CPU, the Intel Core i5 has an advantage in terms of single-core performance. However, Ryzen 5 performs better in graphics performance, which can be instrumental in many games.
The most promising feature of the laptop is the Acer CoolBoost technology which lets you control the cooling process, resulting in an almost 11% decrease in CPU/GPU temperatures. Even after 4 – 5 hours of extensive gaming, the CPU temperature didn’t cross the 70°C mark.
The ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DY features an AMD Ryzen 5-3550H processor with base speed of 2.1 GHz and turbo speed of 3.7 GHz and 6 MB cache is used. The system has 8 GB DDR4 RAM (expandable up to 32 GB). As for storage, the ASUS FX505DY has 1 TB HDD.
The laptop has a 15.6-inch Full HD resolution screen with an LED-backlit display. In addition, it is an IPS-level Panel with a 120Hz refresh rate which is double of most gaming laptops in this range. It comes pre-loaded with Windows 10 Home Edition and covers lifetime validity for any future updates.
Coming to the gaming performance, the Asus FX505DY is powered by an Radeon RX 560X 4GB Graphics card..This enables you to play most of the modern games at medium graphics selection with around 45+FPS.
It also has Hypercool Technology which incorporates dual fan design to ward off extra heat generation during gaming. The technology also prevents dust accumulation in the fans and keeps your laptop in pristine condition for a long time.
While running games, the Asus FX505DT provided a seamless experience with no lag spikes or stuttering. In CS GO, the laptop generated between 140 – 150 fps at ultra settings, and in PUB-G, the laptop generated 70 fps at high settings. For both NFS Rivals and GTA V, the FX505DT generated 50-70 fps at high/ultra settings, which is remarkable given that both these games have a high resource consumption.
Although, we noticed some heating only after 2 hours of gaming and checked the CPU temperature which had crossed the 90°C mark. To resolve this heating issue, it is advisable to manually limit the CPU to 99%. It will cause a negligible difference in frame-rates while maintaining the temperature below the 75° mark.
Though not as powerful as the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54, the AN515-42 is good enough for casual gaming and can take care of all other regular tasks with ease.
The AN515-42 is powered by AMD Ryzen 5 2500U Processor with a base speed of 2.0 GHz and a turbo boost up to 3.70 GHz. It has a storage of 1 TB HDD.
The display is quite bright and the Full HD IPS panel with low input lag is quite apt for gaming. The display has 300 nits brightness, which is pretty good. Colour reproduction is also decent.
The laptop uses AMD Radeon RX 560X with 4 GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM graphics. It is capable of handling games in low to medium settings. So, serious gamers would be better off with Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54.
Lenovo Ideapad L340 is a basic gaming laptop that you could opt for in this price range. If you are into graphics-intensive gaming, then, this might not be a great choice as the graphics card and RAM are sub-par, but those who are into casual gaming and need a high performing laptop for other regular use, then, this might be a good choice.
The laptop features 9th generation Intel i5 9300H processor with 2.4 GHz base speed, 4.1 GHz turbo speed and 8 Mb cache. It has 1 TB HDD storage. The RAM is 8 GB.
Talking about the display, the laptop features a full HD 15.6-inch display with anti-glare technology.
The gaming performance is just about average. While all other laptops in this list have 4GB graphics card RAM, it has just NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics card with 3GB RAM. You will barely be able to play graphics-intensive games at low graphics settings.
ASUS TUF Gaming A15 features 6 core AMD Ryzen 5 4600H processor with a base speed of 3.0 GHz and a turbo speed of 4.0 GHz. The laptop has 8 GB RAM which can be upgraded to 32 GB.
The storage is hybrid with 1 TB HDD and 256 GB SSD.
Talking about the display, the laptop has a 15.6 inch anti-glare IPS panel with excellent colour reproduction and a low response lag. The best aspect of the display is the high refresh rate of 144 Hz, which ensures smooth movements with no blur.
The panel is rated 45% NTSC. While it is enough for gaming, if you plan to use it for video or photo editing purposes, you may find it insufficient.
Featuring 3-cell Lithium-Polymer Battery, manufacturers claim it to last for 6 hours. However, tests say otherwise. On casual use, it lasts for 4 hours. But when you start playing graphics-intensive games, it struggles to last 1-1.5 hours.
Now, talking about the most important aspect- Gaming performance. The laptop features a Dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card. Playing games like Far Cry 5 gave 80fps in maximum settings, while Witcher 3 gave just around 50 fps. The dual fan system does a fairly decent job at keeping the thermals under control. Even while playing for 2+ hours, the laptop is able to run at its peak performance for almost the whole time. In between, there was a small gap of around 5-10 minutes when the performance did drop.
Overall, at this price range, it offers pretty decent performance. Other than the poor battery life, you can’t really find any fault.
The Lenovo Legion Y7000 is equipped with a ninth-generation Core Intel i5 processor, with a turbo speed of 4.1 GHz and 8 MB cache. It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home Edition, has 8 GB DDR4 RAM and 1 TB + 256 SSD storage capacity.
The 15.6-inch screen has a Full HD resolution, 60 Hz refresh rate, 250 Nits Brightness, 72% Color Gamut, and an IPS Panel. It is one of the most spectacular displays in this category with superb viewing angles, great brightness and contrast levels, and natural color reproduction.
For gaming, the laptop is powered by an Nvidia GTX 1050 3 GB Graphics. The GPU in combination with the i5 processor is great for the people who are looking for a medium-level gaming experience.
In CS GO, the laptop managed 110-130 fps at ultra settings. In PUB-G, the frame-rate was 55 – 70, but it dropped suddenly during a fight. The sudden drop in frame-rate can be attributed to the GTX 1050 which has its limitations while running resource-hungry games. In GTA V, the laptop managed 30 fps at medium/high settings and similarly in NFS Rivals, the fps varied between 30 – 40 at high/medium settings.
To enhance your gaming experience, Lenovo Legion Y7000 uses the Dolby Atmos technology to provide precise surround sound. With the new Sound Radar overlay, you are able to identify the location of different sounds easily while gaming.
The laptop also uses the Lenovo Coldfront technology to regulate CPU/GPU temperatures during gaming. It incorporates a dual-channel thermal system, which ensures individual CPU and GPU cooling. Even after 4-5 hours of regular gaming, you will notice the CPU temperature not rising beyond the 75°C mark.
The Acer Aspire 5 Slim is not specifically a gaming laptop – it is more of a multipurpose laptop with gaming capabilities. It is powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i5 processor with a turbo boost of 3.9 GHz, and 8 GB DDR4 RAM. The laptop combines a 2 TB HDD with a 512 SSD to provide an ultimate storage solution.
The 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display uses Acer Color Intelligence which is an anti-glare technology that uses the Acer BlueLightShield to minimize damage to your eyes while using the laptop for long.
For gaming, the laptop has a dedicated Nvidia GeForce MX250 2 GB Graphics. It is not a heavy-duty GPU but is fairly decent to provide you a casual to medium-level gaming experience.
While running CS GO, we managed 80 – 100 fps without any lag or stuttering.
However, it is not a recommended system to play PUB-G even at medium settings. We noticed frequent delays and fps drop during the fights. The game only managed 50 – 60 fps at medium settings and many textures didn’t load properly.
In the case of GTA V and NFS Rivals at low settings, we managed 40 fps. The gameplay was smooth and we didn’t notice any fps drop either.
The laptop has a below-par cooling system. When we used it continuously for over 4 hours, it started to heat up considerably.
