Gaming laptop around 25-30k


Broken In
1) What is your budget? (INR or USD)
My budget is around 25k but can extend to 30k.

What size & weight consideration (if any) would you prefer?
Thin and Light; 12" - 14" screen
Mainstream; 15" - 16" screen

Either screen size will be fine.

3) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
Nope as far as I'm concerned but would like your reviews on different manufacturers.

4) What are the primary tasks will you be performing with this notebook?
Mainly surfing the web, watching movies and gaming.

5) What screen resolution(s) & type (glossy/matte) would you prefer?
Any resolution which is good for watching movies and playing games would be preferred and can anyone tell me as what is the difference between matte and glossy finish.

6) Anything else you would like to say?
Thinking of buying one from Flipkart.Also can check from local Reliance Digital or E-Zone or Chandni chowk(Kolkata).

Also I've shortlisted some laptops in this price range and reading their reviews online have impressed me quite a bit.But I would like your expert advice as well.

  • HP Pavilion G6-1318AX
    HP Pavilion G6-2302AX
    Asus X53TK-SX056D

Also can anyone tell me how would Dell Vostro in this price range fair as some of them come up with Core i3.

And if Acer Aspire One 725 Netbook will be a good buy or not?

if you absolutely can't increase your budget past 30k, get the Asus X53TK. It is a modded version of the famous X53TA but with better GPU. Don't be fooled by the 1.5Ghz clockspeed. It is quite capable and definitely better than any dualcore A4/A6. But seriously, if you plan to game buy a desktop or increase your budget to ~35k. a midrange GPU won't help when the processor lets you down.

Matte is an anti reflective display where objects doesn't reflect on screen and glossy means normal type display, glossy displays are not comfortable for outdoor, though colour looks good on glossy displays compared to matte.

And dell vostros are business laptops, they either have pathetic graphic card or comes with On board Intel GPU, not meant for gaming.

Thank you all for your expert comments.
I also know that a desktop would fare better than a laptop but the one which I want to assemble is quite costly and would take some time so for the time being I'm looking for a laptop which can meet gaming requirements until desktop is assembled.

Hello Guys,

Back again.
Well things haven't went as planned but will like your suggestion.
Went through gaming laptops on Flipkart when I found Dell has introduced 2 laptops in 25-30 k range.
They are Dell Vostro 14 3445 Notebook (APU Quad Core A6/ 4GB/ 500GB/ Win8.1/ 2GB Graph), dell-vostro-14-3445-notebook-apu-quad-core-a6-4gb-500gb-ubuntu-2gb-graph.
Also liked HP 15-g009AX Notebook (APU Quad Core A8/ 4GB/ 1TB/ Free DOS/ 2GB Graph) (G8D85PA) but priced a little higher.

Will greatly like all your suggestions.

Can anyone tell me how this laptop would furnish for light gaming and if one wants to run Crysis on it.
HP Pavilion 15-n020AX Laptop (APU Quad Core A4/ 4GB/ 1TB/ Ubuntu/ 1GB Graph)
Also can anyone tell me if I buy a system with DOS or ubuntu will I be able to add Win 7?
What will be the difficulties in installing it?
Also can anyone suggest electronics market place in Bangalore as I stay in My sore right now and last but not least what things I should watch out for while going to buy my first laptop at a retail outlet rather than ordering it online.
My HP G6 2005AX is still at the HP service centre, almost 2 months and the motherboard still not replaced. Its 2 years "running" for me too but running in bad condition.
Btw 2 (or maybe 3) years ago it was Rs33,000-Rs35,000.
Now its Rs31,000. Whats wrong with the computing world?? Why aren't prices not falling?

So guys.

After all these months I'm lost.

Please suggest some good laptop which can support graphic intensive games smoothly as well as HD Videos.

I do understand that given my price range certain compromises need to be made in terms of graphics but still deliver a decent play value.
