Not so good but not the worst, there is one more laptop I have added. But the price at which it is available seems a little extra than what it should be priced.
What does this laptop look like? An ordinary everyday use laptop, right? But inside this ordinary looking laptop there is massive power and performance. I have always been an Asus fan just because they have got a good range of all kinds of laptops and their gaming laptops offer very good value for money deals. Personally, I have been using an Asus gaming laptop which is working well and till now, in the history of last two years, I have got no problems with it despite of very rough usage. Now, this laptop is ideal for most gamers who want to play high-end games, along with an old taste of Windows 7. The laptop is powered by Intel Core i7 processor offering a speed of 2.2 GHz and turbo boost up to 3.1 GHz. Just like the first two laptops in our Top 5 list, it has got 8GB DDR3 RAM. But in case of storage, Asus lowered the configuration a little bit with a 750GB hard disk capacity. Talking about the graphics, the laptop has got 2 GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M dedicated graphics to fulfill all your gaming needs. Now, the highlight of this laptop is that it has Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) preloaded. So, it is good for most gamers who want to play the latest game but also want to stick to the conventional Windows UI and features of Windows 7. In case of connectivity, the laptop ha got two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, card reader and HDMI port. And the last thing, a Blu-ray DVD combo drive, which may be extremely useful if you use some Blu-ray pretty often. This laptop is available on Flipkart for Rs. 72,500.
Pros: Windows 7 preloaded, sufficient RAM, 4 USB ports, Blu-ray DVD combo drive
Cons: Older graphics card, lesser hard disk space, over priced
