Gaming has seen a massive shift in the past few years with manufacturers shrinking down their chips to make them fit inside portable machines. Gaming laptops have always been a niche category, but not anymore. You now have the flexibility to choose between entry-level notebooks for light gaming, or a heavy-duty powerhouse that can match up to the performance of desktops. This year will be the third iteration of the Tech and Auto Awards which India's first Technology and Automotive Awards, celebrating the confluence of connectivity and mobility. After a stupendous first two editions, the third edition will be live on December 10 at the Lalit Hotel in New Delhi. It is expected that Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport and Highways of India and Harsh Vardhan, Minister for Science and Technology, will also be in attendance.
Some of the most prominent gaming laptops that we saw this year includes the Alienware Area 51m which is outfitted with upgradable hardware including the processor and GPU. Then there is the HP Omen X 2S which comes with impressive hardware and a secondary display for enhanced multitasking experience.
