Of course, we want a good gaming laptop that can handle all of our daily light-weight tasks and heavy-weight tasks like gaming as well but not all of us have thousands of dollars to spend on a laptop. So here is a list of some of the best picks for the budget segment that we recommend to students primarily but can be used by anyone and everyone as well:

1. ACER NITRO 5 2022

Acer Nitro 5 is a very good bet in the budget segment coming in at just $900 which is powered by intel’s i5-11400h processor and is backed by 16 GB of ram. With RTX 3050 ti as its GPU, gaming and content creation shouldn’t be a problem at all, capable of running most games up to 60+ fps, so when playing any game you won’t have to worry about bumping the game setting all the way down to low.

The laptop does feature its own gaming tools through which you can customize and tailor the laptop settings according to your usage. In terms of the loudness, it does get a little noisy when you bump up the fan speeds too high but that is to be expected when fan speeds are maxed out.

There are no complaints in terms of the screen as well as it has a 15.6″ full HD IPS 144hz display for a silky smooth experience assuming the frame rate can keep up. The battery can last up to 8 hours of mixed-use and comes with 512 GB of internal storage as well.


Medion Erazer p25 is a very big bargain coming at just $750 given its specifications, this laptop may look like it weighs a ton but is actually pretty lightweight and is absolutely packed with ports to connect all sorts of things- 3 USB type A, HDMI ports, Display port, and a type C port as well as an ethernet port as usual.

This laptop holds the power of Ryzen 5 5600h and also has a Ryzen 7 version of itself which delivers even more power and a better experience, it is also backed by 16 GB DDR4 ram which makes this notebook very quick and responsive even on heavy loads.

The laptop hosts a GeForce RTX 3060 which powers all your gaming and rendering tasks. It can easily handle high-definition games at 60+ fps at max settings. Unlike the Acer Nitro, you don’t get a dedicated gaming tool but you do get complete control over the fans of the laptop and you can customize them to your liking fully.

For the display, you get a 15.6 inch full HD IPS panel and of course a 144hz refresh rate, the screen has really vibrant and eye-catching colors so it isn’t very well suited to outdoor use but this is a very good option for you if on a budget.


And last up on this list is the Lenovo legion 5 which you can get for around $900 and is the perfect all-around budget laptop for you. This gaming beast weighs 2.4kgs/5.2lbs but has a very sleek design and looks very appealing in person. You get a very soft-touch interior and a good keyboard which is obviously backlit as all other laptops on this list.

The selection of ports on this gaming laptop is very nice as well with 2 type C USB ports, 3 USB type A ports, HDMI ports, and the obligatory ethernet connector. There is also a switch that disables the webcam and prevents any app from using your webcam until you allow it.

For the performance side of things, it is powered by the Ryzen 7  5800h and 8 GB ddr4 ram which is more than enough practically, it features Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060 which allows you to run any game and have a silky smooth experience no matter what.

If you demand full control of your device you’ve got the Lenovo vantage app which allows full customization starting from fan speeds to the lighting on your keyboard. For the display, it has a 15,6 inch IPS full HD panel with a 120hz refresh rate, don’t worry if that doesn’t suit you this laptop also has a 165 Hz version with the same specifications.

That concludes our list of the top gaming laptops you should buy on a tight budget but by no means are we saying that these are the only laptops in this price range that will be the best for you, some Asus TUF series laptops are out honorable mentions as they are similar to the laptops in the list. We hope you found this helpful and do leave a comment as it helps us know what you want from us in the future.
