Gaming laptops contain powerful hardware and can therefore be used by programmers. However, not all programmers need that kind of power. If you’re doing Machine Learning, AI dev, or Blockchain dev, then you would need a lot of memory (RAM), decent processing power, and multi threaded rendering capability. A gaming laptop will work well for such a requirement. However, you must also note that gaming laptops have loud design and aesthetics with plenty of colorful LEDs, a huge fan, etc. That may not really work well in a professional environment. It will work for students who are learning programming languages and also love playing video games.
Also Game developers can go for gaming laptops to test their code. I would recommend going for the HP OMEN Laptop 16-c0136AX. It’s powered by an AMD Ryzen 5, 8 GB RAM, and NVIDIA® GeForce GTX™ 1650 (4GB GDDR6). It will be a great laptop for playing games, doing programming, developing websites, and learning data science. With an RGB backlit keyboard, 9+ hour-long battery and free HP Vector gaming mouse you can enjoy long term working sessions. It will cost you around Rs. 78,000 on HP shopping site where you can get 5% cashback (up to ₹2500) on SBI Cards.
There are several ways to do that. You could add more RAM and replace the HDD with an SSD (in case the laptop didn’t come with the latter). You could buy a monitor to get a bigger screen to play games. However, the biggest difference you get in gaming performance is from the GPU. If the laptop doesn’t have a dedicated GPU, then you can’t upgrade to one. Onboard GPUs are not powerful enough to play the heavy duty AAA gaming titles. If you want to enjoy those, then you’ll have to guy a new laptop. For instance you could check out the OMEN 16-b0352TX. The gaming machine is powered by an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16.1-inch FHD (1920 x 1080), 144 Hz, 7 ms response time, IPS screen, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU (4 GB GDDR6). The gaming beast can handle most graphics-intensive games and is priced at INR 124,999.

“Data scientists need powerful machines because they have to deal with huge data sets and files that can run into MBs or even GBs. They process this data using tools like SQL, R, Python, Hadoop, LaTeX, etc. A normal laptop can’t handle this kind of load. You should go for a laptop with the latest generation CPU (12th gen is the latest from Intel), either from Intel or AMD. An Intel Core i7 or higher is recommended. Go for at least 16 GB RAM, and upgrade to 32 GB as the data sets become heavier. A GPU is a must for Data scientist, so something like a GeForce 10 or Quadro from Nvidia or higher is recommended. Go for at least 1 TB SSD for storage. If you’re looking for some good machines, then check out the HP ZBook series of laptops. You’ll find a device with specs that are suitable for you.
