5. MacBook Pro 15-inch
Price: Rs 149,000-Rs 189,000

Though, we list it among the top five gaming laptops, this one would do good with some makeover.

It has an amazingly vibrant and colourful display, of a class that is tough to find in any. What saddens though is the graphics card, which is a rather low GPU of which the lowest model possesses a mere 256GB hard drive.

If you are an average and not an avid gamer, it might seem like a good enough notebook, though to see it compete with the best of gaming laptops for avid gamers, it has to have a larger graphics card and disc space.

And to see it ranging between Rs 1,49,000 and Rs 1,89,000, it does seem quite expensive as well.
