looking for a cheap laptop for games like minecraft, stalker series, fallout out series


Jan 4, 2014
hello, I need a laptop cheapest as possible, to be used when i am travelling.. it should be able to do things lag free.. gaming or other wise. I have a gigabyte q2006 netbook which cant even run 1080p movies.. so decided to give it to sister and buy a new one for me.. I have a desktop, which is my primary vehicle.. anything heavy will be done in that..

I would use this laptop for animation work 2d (toon boom) or may be in learning blender..

However, I would also play games like minecraft (high settings), stalker series, fallout series.. if it can run something crysis 3 or farcry 4 at lowest setting at 720p, i would be highly satisfied, not that i am going to play these two. only minecraft will be played in high settings.. others at low settings will do.

battery should give atleast 3 hours of backup while watching movies and other low intensity work.

budget: below 25000 rupees (450$).... but i will take it if my requirements are fulfilled at rs 20000. (180$) :D . and it should be available in india.. i know its hard to get good things cheap, but spending anything like Rs 20000 for 3 years of service, is a big thing for me.

i dont have anything specific laptop in mind, as i dont have much idea about laptop processors and graphics.. but this one should be good to start with (cheapest) or is it?


thanks to all in advance for your replies... and sorry for a confusing post.

Unfortunately you have a couple of conflicting requirements from your laptop purchase. You should forgo putting gaming duties such as Crysis 3 or the likes on a mobile computing device unless you're shelling out on a laptop that is meant for gaming duties like the ones seen under Asus's ROG lineup. That being said, you forgot to include the site from which you'd like to purchase your laptop so as to help us sift through various SKU's/model that are in offer in your locality.

Sadly, snapdeal's portal isn't available for me to access while the info you've provided seems to shed some discrepancy, 20,000Rp does not equal to $450US. While the $180US does't look like you're going to get a gaming grade laptop outside of a refurbished unit, older gen tech or second hand.

In any case, have a look through this short list:

In case we've gotten off on the wrong foot, please read through this post and provide the necessary details for the rest of the community to pass on a suggestion.
