Summary
This laptop has probably the best graphics card in this budget. What also makes it great is 8GB RAM, Dos, and a full HD display. There’s an eighth-gen processor too, so not like there’s anything to complain here.

Asus Laptop X512DA Laptop

Summary
We find the Asus X412DA to be having drool-worthy looks. But it’s not just beauty and has got plenty of brains too. The Ryzen 3500U is better than an eighth-gen Intel i5 and that Vega 8 should be decent for entry-level gaming too. Others specs like a full HD display, 8GB RAM, and Windows 10 are acceptable too. Lastly, the Vega 8 on this is approximately 15% faster than the one on 2500U.

HP Laptop is a mean machine. It comes with the Core i5 8th Gen Laptop, which is comparable to the i5 8265U (give or take 10% performance).

Summary
By no means is the Intel UHD graphics 620 a gaming card and, thus, the ASUS VivoBook X407UA is a gaming laptop. Still, it’s better than stock Intel, if that counts. We also like the fact that it is a 14 inch machine. However, the sub-par resolution and Windows 10.

Our recommendation on choosing the top laptop under Rs 40,000:

Rs 40,000 can get you a laptop that can handle your moderate gaming needs, implying, you would be able to play older games comfortably but might struggle with the latest ones, unless played at the lowest settings. And the culprit is the GPU instead of RAM or the CPU.

If you can get a laptop with 150MX get it. Period. Otherwise, MX130, Vega 8/540, and the M445 are the best cards under Rs 40,000 that can offer a decent gaming experience, while the M530, M430, and the likes offer entry-level gaming performance. Also, with software optimizations, it seems like the Vega 8 is finally performing better in more recent games compared to the 3-year-old 940MX.

All of these graphics cards should be adequate for architecture and design students.

On the processor front, 8th generation Core i5 is the best you’ll find in this range. Ryzen 2500U is on par with the 8250U while the new 3500U might even exceed it. If you’re looking for a Core i3, make sure it’s at least 8th gen. Oh, and an eighth-gen i3 is on par with a 7th gen Core i5.

That doesn’t mean that these laptops aren’t any good for office or other needs and these are the most powerful laptops available under Rs 40,000. They’re as good for college students and working professionals. As such people not looking for gaming can pick the best laptop based on their needs (8GB RAM for multitaskers, Windows 10/DOS, Core i5 for video editing, etc.)

Depending on your requirements, we’ve made a list below that details the best options across varied priorities (click against the name to jump to detailed specs above):
