ASUS TUF FX504 |Rs 72,990 | Intel Core i7-8750H | Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti | Easily the best value for money laptop on the list, the Asus TUF gaming laptop offers excellent performance and audio quality.

Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52 | Rs 75,990 | Intel Core i7-8750H |Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti | The Acer Nitro strikes the perfect balance between price and performance.
