Hello, This is Thanalysis, and today in this article, I am going to show you the 12 best laptops that you can buy for around ₹80,000 in India. As the price is nearly below an average, you gonna get a bit high specs compared to 60,000 or 70,000 price range laptops. At this price, many don't offer a Core i7 processor but Mi does.

So, let's get started. But, before I begin, I would like to recommend to you my article on the explanation of laptop specs. It will give you an idea of what does the spec mean.

I am happy that you can do gaming at medium settings on this laptop, but overall you won't get the performance that you get in the decent gaming machines.

For writers and programmers, typing will be somewhat disappointing due to inconsistent tactile feedback. However, you can overcome it by buying an external dedicated keyboard.

The Asus TUF A15 is a gaming laptop powered by Ryzen 7 CPU and NVIDIA GTX 1650 Ti GPU. Such high specs allow it to provide a very high performance.

I have found better thermal management inside this laptop. During the performance mode, the WASD part and the middle of the keyboard found pretty cool.

Furthermore, you cannot use the performance mode on the battery. You must plug-in the laptop to use it. Overall, I observed almost no thermal throttling in the CPU.

This Lenovo ThinkPad E14 isn't a gaming machine. Because of its Intel Core i7 CPU and AMD GPU, it is possible to play almost all games at low settings. But, to be frank, the gaming experience was never great for me at low settings. This laptop got an average brighter display but its color gamut found fallen on the poor side. Also, the screen response time measured was found high, which shouldn't.

This MSI's leopard is also an entry-level gaming machine. It has somewhat more disappointing things than impressive.

It has no option to disable the Optimus. The touchpad doesn't click down anywhere. The keyboard is tactile but at the same time, the flex has extended to the palm rest area.

And, on this laptop, you won't be able to enjoy the gaming on a 5K external monitor since it doesn't have a thunderbolt port. Camera quality is found below an average with no Windows hello support here.

This is just an entry-level Dell's gaming machine. It is powered by an Intel Core i5 CPU and NVIDIA GTX 1650 Ti 4GB Graphics.

The specs are high, but typing on the keyboard has given a shallow feeling. But, it is okay if the keyboard is tactile. For the touchpad, I found no issue with it. Despite such a high price, Dell hasn't provided the average brighter display even.

Also, the screen color gamut was found falling on the poor side. But, that's a matter for content creation, not for gaming.

List of the best laptops under 80,000 in India

FAQs

1. How I have tested the battery life of the laptops?

To test the battery life, I have kept background apps off, keyboard lighting off (if available), and screen brightness set to 50%. Then, just enjoyed YouTube while keeping the timer on.

2. How the screen color gamut was tested?

I have used Spyder 5 PRO to test the screen color gamut.

3. How I have determined that the keyboard is tactile?

To test the keyboard, I have typed 2 pages on Notepad. During typing, I have also measured the actual key travel in mm. In this way, I have also come to know that some laptops' keyboard despite having good tactile feedback, gives shallow feeling during typing.

4. How I have tested the touchpad?

I have performed several gestures activity to test the touchpad's smoothness, responsiveness, and accuracy. For precision recognition, Windows tells that whether it is or not.

5. How I have checked the flex?

For screen flex, I have intentionally moved the screen by fair movements using my fingers to check the flex level. It indirectly also gives information about hinge placement.

For keyboard flex, I have intentionally pushed the keyboard down hard to check the flex level. In addition to that, I have also tested it for expansion towards or to the palm rest portion.

6. How I have measured the speakers quality?

To check the speaker's loudness, I have personally listened to the audio from a YouTube video and tested the sound level in dB using DigiTech's sound level meter.

To check the speaker's clarity, bass, and tiny sound, I have used both DigiTech's sound level meter and a LatencyMon's test results.
