If you are someone who follows or interested in computer components you might know about intel and AMD. Intel has been dominating the CPU segment for almost a decade and rightfully so because they had very good processors for the time.
How things have changed! AMD is absolutely dominating right now.
Looking for a laptop with high multicore performance look nowhere else than Ryzen 7 from AMD. Some applications might still favor Intel due to the marginally higher single core performance on the Intel counterparts.
I have another article about the best Ryzen 5 laptop’s make sure your read that if want some detailed information about these processors but if you don’t want to, I will make a short summary about these processors in the upcoming section.

The most important thing is make sure you look out for the 4000 series of Ryzen processors because they are significantly more powerful than their 3000 series counterparts but if you want something cheaper or the specifications you desire don’t come with the 4000 series of processors the laptops containing 3000 series of processors are also included in the list for consumers reference.
So, choose wise!
Why Should You Go For Ryzen 7?
(The point mentioned here are only applicable for the 4000 series of processors as they are totally different form the 3000 series of Ryzen processors)
There are some inherent advantages going for Ryzen over intel…
Ryzen 7 (4800H to be precise) provides two more cores (8 cores)than the competing i7 10th generation(6 cores) and even competes with the top of the line core i9 form intel which is commendable for a chip that costs significantly less.
Better Multicore Performance
The multicore performance is directly better as a result due to more cores and better 7nm architecture and the optimizations that AMD has done with their processor.

Better Battery Life
Due to the more efficient 7nm architecture AMD uses the AMD laptops provide significantly better battery life than competing intel laptops.
Laptops with Discrete GPU
Frame rates define gaming. For the hardcore gamer out there, intel is better for you if you need the every last bit of framerate.
Intel processors have better gaming performance all around and for most of the users Ryzen should suffice as the framerate difference is at most around 7% to 10% so take this into consideration if frame rates matter to you a lot.
Thin and light laptops with integrated GPU:
The Integrated GPU in Ryzen 4000 series is better than the intel counterparts but that shouldn’t be that much of a problem as thin and light laptops are not for the gamers out there.
As there are a lot of options available it might be quite a confusion for you to choose so the things that matter to you the most are simplified here.
Best Ryzen 7 Laptops in India:
There have been a lot of gaming laptops released powered by the Ryzen 4000 series, but every laptop comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. So, make sure you pick the right one up.
Most of the gaming laptops powered by the R7 4800H come with 1650(in the budget segment) but if you don’t care about the processor and want a better GPU then you might also look at the R7 3750H that comes only with 4 cores compared to 8 cores in the 4800H but most of the time come with a better GPU so you got to pick your poison if you are in a strict budget and looking for a Ryzen based laptop.
Here I give you the best you the best picks not in any order
1. Acer Nitro 5
Acer nitro 5 is arguably one of the best cheaper offerings that is powered by the Ryzen 7 4800H.
Coming to design it is very “gamer” aesthetic as it is covered all around with red accents which some might like, and some might straight up hate it. The laptop is pretty thick and heavy coming at around 2.3kgs.
Nitro 5 comes with a 60hz 15.6-inch, panel with pretty poor colour reproduction covering only 45% of the NTSC so it is not recommended for people doing professional colour work or even content creators on a budget.
It comes equipped with a GTX 1650 which is pretty good and is suited for this laptop as the laptop comes with only a 60hz screen and 1650 will push out framerates around 60 in most of the games.

On the storage front it comes with a 1TB HDD and a 256SSD for the fast bootup times and the laptop comes with 8 gigs of RAM that can be expanded.
Keyboard is very average as the keys feel very mushy and the track pad should serve you good enough for the casual tasks, but a mouse is recommended for hardcore users. The speakers are just “meh” but should be fine for casual video watching. External speakers are recommended if media consumption is your primary concern.
The battery life is actually very good which is due to the power efficient R7 and pretty good sized 57wh battery which should give you around 6+ hours of battery life.
Thermal management in the laptop is excellent for a less expensive laptop as it comes with pretty much the same cooling system as the predator laptops. So, gamers looking for extended gaming sessions would be happy with the laptop.
Overall the laptop is pretty good for the price which is around 80k and at this price it is one of the better Ryzen offerings if you don’t care about the design and the 60hz screen.
2. ASUS TUF A15
TUF A15 is the cheapest R7 4800H laptop available in India. It is a laptop that has been mentioned in a lot of articles just due to its value for money proposition.
Design of the laptop is like the nitro 5 but slightly toned down without the ugly (opinion) red accents. But the laptop looks unmistakably gaming with the angular lines and thick body. It is also heavy coming at around 2.3 kgs.
Display of the laptop is 144hz and the size is 15.6-inches, but the quality of the panel is particularly bad for colour work and the panel is also very dim and has a low response time for a 144hz panel. But yeah 144hz feels smoother than the 60hz displays out there.
Keyboard is very good but the same cannot be said for the trackpad as it is just okay, and the speakers are pretty good for a gaming laptop.
Storage should be good as it comes with 1TB HDD and 256GB SSD for bootup and the RAM is 8 gigs that can be expanded.
GPU used here is GTX 1650 and the performance is as expected form a laptop at this price point which is pretty good.
Thermals are a weak point in the A15 and needs to be tweaked for extended gaming session else you might be disappointed with the temps it outputs.
Battery life is okay at around 4 to 5 hours as it comes with only a 48wh cell.
The laptop comes with its fair share of thermal issues which can be resolved if you are up for the time required to tweak it but if the 144hz screen doesn’t matter to its advisable to spend some more and go for the acer nitro 5 if thermals matter to you a lot.
3. ASUS Zephyrus G14
Zephyrus G14 is a banger of a laptop if you care about portability with performance.
G14 is one of the stealthier looking gaming laptops. One would not mistake this for a gaming laptop as it comes with a great build and design and is very thin and light weighing 1.6kgs.
As the name suggests the laptop comes with a 14-inch display. It comes with a 120hz display and is good for all purposes intended as it comes with a pantone validated display out of the box covering 100% of the sRGB so, it should suffice the people who are looking to do professional work and gamers alike as it has a 120hz but the 12
0hz screen doesn’t have very good response time.
Keyboard and trackpad are both very good. The track pad is particularly good as it is a glass trackpad. The speakers are awesome and easily best in any Ryzen laptop. If media consumption is your main objective, then there is not better choice than the Zephyrus G14.
There are 2 storage variants 1TB and 512GB SSD and both are the same intel drives with pretty good read and write speed. RAM capacity ranges from 8 to 16 gigs between different models.

Multiple GPU options are available, and you can choose whatever you want form GTX 1650 to RTX 2060 all with the same Ryzen 7 4800H.
Performance is pretty good if not the best which is mainly due to the size constraints of the laptop. Thermals are also good if not great and disabling the turbo boost is a must to get good thermals. If you are looking for the best gaming laptop then this is not for you as there are much better gaming focused laptops out there.
This might be considered as a middle ground of good performance and portability.
Battery life is also very good with at around 7 to 8 hrs as it comes with a 76wh battery.
It doesn’t come with a webcam so keep that in mind and the screen size might be pretty small for gaming if you are used to bigger screens. You cannot go wrong with this laptop just make sure that you choose the right GPU.
4. Dell G5 SE
Dell G5 SE is quite a controversial laptop to say the least. It is one of the laptops that provides excellent specs on the paper but the specs on paper doesn’t exactly transfer to the usage in real life.
Build quality of laptops are not that big of a concern to many if they serve the purpose. The most important hardware component of a laptop is the hinge and the things don’t seem well here for the G5 SE as it comes with a central hinge mechanism which is not that well done in here. There’s a lot of force that is exerted on the centrally located hinge which is not good for the longevity and there are high chances that the hinge might break on you.
G5 SE is very thick and heavy coming at 2.5 kg which is the heaviest for a 15-inch gaming laptop.
Rant aside If you don’t care about these kinds of stuff then don’t worry.
Display is the a mediocre 120hz 15.6-inch one with 45% of NTSC coverage and not good response times.
For storage the laptop is equipped with 512 gigs of pretty fast SSD and 16 gigs of RAM inbuilt where a lot of laptops in this price segment only come with 8 gigs of RAM.

GPU here is a Radeon 5600M which is equivalent in gaming to a 1660ti but the 5600M consumes significantly more power. The performance of the laptop is good for the price, but the thermals are a matter of discussion.
Thermal management in the laptop is very weak and the temperatures get uncomfortably hot which is a concern for the longevity of the laptop. If you think that you could manage all the things and buy the laptop then this should be a concern as there is not much you could do. There are some reports of dell solving these thermal issues with software updates but there’s no concrete information whether the thermal issues have been solved.
Battery life is also mediocre as it comes with a 51wh battery which is a decent size and the battery life should be around 4 hours on light use.
This laptop is only recommended for the people who are looking to get a laptop with the most amount power and tweak it a ton to get it work as you intend it to for other this is a tough recommendation.
5. ASUS TUF A17
TUF A17 is simply put a bigger brother of the TUF A15 with larger screen and a heavier body.
A17 is unmistakably a big device with its 17.3-inch screen and heavier and thicker footprint coming at around 2.6kgs.
Display is a mediocre quality panel with 120hz of refresh rate and is not recommended for anything other than gaming.
GPU used in the laptop is the GTX 1660ti which is a very good midrange card and it comes with 16 gigs of RAM in dual channel.
Also Read : Best Laptops Under Rs 40,000 in India
Pretty much everything else is the same and the A17 has the same issues as the A15 with comparatively worse battery life due to the extra-large screen.
Honestly this laptop is for a very niche group of people that only look to do gaming in their laptops.
6. HP Omen 15
The omen 15 is a very good gaming laptop from HP which comes with a fair share of issues you should be aware of.
Build quality is pretty good except for the fact than there is a very noticeable screen flex you should be aware of if you travel a lot.
Design of the laptop is also pretty good considering the fact that it is a gaming laptop and is considerably thinner and smaller in footprint than other laptops in this segment.
The screen is a mediocre 60hz 15.6-inch one like most of the laptops in the segment.
Trackpad and Keyboard are pretty good and should suffice most of the users. The speakers are also acceptable.
It come with a GTX 1650ti and performs average as expected but the cooling in the laptop is very good and should be able to handle long hours of gaming or heavy workloads with ease.
The battery life is average as it comes only with 52wh cell and should provide around 4 to 5 hours of use.
Overall this is a pretty good laptop except for the screen flex issue and the poor quality 60hz screen. If those things don’t matter to you this is one of the better choices out there.
Thin And Light Laptops
All these thin and light laptops come with the Ryzen 7 4700u that comes with 8 cores and 8 threads as the 4700u doesn’t support multi-threading.
Things you got to look out here are the build quality section, screen quality and the battery life.
(To be frank there are not a lot of brands that have their thin and light laptops powered by 4700u. ASUS is the only OEM that has released lot of laptop’s powered by 4700u in india)
7. ASUS VivoBook Ultra 15
Naming scheme of the laptop could be quite misleading as it has the word ultra in it. But the laptop is nothing ultra but ordinary.
Screen quality is average as it comes with a not so bright 15.6-inch screen and a 45% NTSC coverage which makes it fine for normal use, but any sort of professional work is not recommended.
For storage it comes with a 1TB HDD and 256 GB of SSD for faster boot times. 8 gigs of RAM that comes with the laptop is already in a dual channel configuration so that should give a bit of performance advantage in certain workloads.

Keyboard is chiclet style which is good, and trackpad is fine for everyday use and the speakers are mediocre and the keyboard is a full size one with the number pad built in and for security it comes with a fingerprint scanner. Speakers are also not that good and a external speaker is recommended.
Battery life is also average as it comes only with a 42wh cell which should provide about 5+ hours of use for light applications.
It is a pretty good laptop for the price it comes at which is around 65k and at the price it is one of the better picks.
8. ASUS Vivobook S14
Vivobook S14 is a 14-inch thin and light offering form ASUS that does everything pretty good for the price.
Build quality is good but predominantly plastic and is very light coming at 1.4kgs.
Screen is of a mediocre quality 200nits and low colour gamut coverage as expected.
Keyboard and trackpad are like the one from the Vivobook ultra but the S14 doesn’t come with a number but comes with a fingerprint sensor for security. Speakers are just okay.
512 gigs of SSD is pretty fast and should provide you decent bootup times.

Battery is life good as it has only a 14-inch screen and comes with a larger 50wh battery and you can expect around 6-7 hours of battery life.
Overall the laptop is okay for regular purposes and should be good enough for people looking for a bit of extra performance in their ultrabooks.
9. ASUS Vivobook 14
Vivobook 14 is almost the same as the S14 but with one downgrade.
Only downgrade is the battery as the laptop comes only with a 42wh battery unlike the 50wh cell from the S14 and the S14 comes with preinstalled MS office 2019 if that’s something matters to you.
Vivoboook 14 is significantly less expensive than than the S14. So, if the size of battery doesn’t matter to you then this is a very good pick as this is the cheapest ultrabook powered by the Ryzen 7 4700u.
10. ASUS Vivobook Flip 14
Flip 14 is yet another iteration of the Vivobook 14 but in here it comes with a touch screen and stylus support.
As the name suggests the screen can be flipped all the way upto 360 degrees and can be operated with the included stylus but the screen is not any good quality and is just mediocre.
Rest all the specs and feel of the trackpad and keyboard are pretty much the same as the vivobook 14.
Battery is also the same 42wh one and should provide around 5hrs off battery life.
Flip 14 is recommended only if you need a convertible laptop with R7 4700u as there are better options around.
Ryzen 3000 Series
The above-mentioned gaming laptops all come with a R7 4000 (8 cores) series which is much more powerful than the R7 3000 series that comes with 4 cores but you there are some features you might like in the older generation laptops so they are being included in the list.
10. Microsoft Surface Laptop 3
Surface laptop from Microsoft is arguably the best windows ultrabook that money can buy.
Build quality is straight up excellent and the design is second to none as the laptop looks and feel premium as you would expect a Microsoft product to be.
Important takeaway here is that the laptop comes with a 15.6- inch screen but weighs only around 1. 5 which is commendable for a laptop with a larger screen than most of the ultrabook’s out there.
Performance is pretty good for regular use but is not recommended for any sort of heavy workloads.
Display is just excellent with great colours and brightness and should be suitable for professional colour work.
Keyboard and trackpad are easily the best in any windows laptop. The speakers are good.

11. ASUS ROG Zephyrus G
Zephyrus G is an old laptop at this released almost a year ago but it should do you pretty good with the decent specs it offers.
Build is predominantly plastic with a metal lid but it is light weight coming at around 2.2 kgs which is the lightest among any 15.6-inch offering in the price range and it is also very thin measuring at just 18mm.
Display is a mediocre quality one with 120hz of refresh rate but should be good enough for gamers and is not recommended for professionals.
Keyboard and trackpad are average at best and the speakers are fine for normal everyday use.

During sale you could buy the laptop for around 75k which is honestly a steal for the performance it offers. So, if you are looking for some decent gaming performance for the price then this laptop is your best bet.

Display is very good as it comes with 144hz panel with around 100% sRGB coverage. So, the laptop should suit gamers and professionals alike.
