Best Laptops Under Rs.50,000 in India

A few days back, I was actually asking myself a question -“How much money will I spend to purchase a laptop?” Even though I dreamt about Macbook Air, I finally narrowed it down to Rs.50,000. And here I am with a list of best laptops that you can purchase under Rs.50,000. I know, 50 grand is a huge chunk of money for a laptop and I don’t want to disappoint you either. So, this list is a combination of professionally oriented to high intensity gaming laptops/notebooks from the popular laptop manufacturers.

They have all the rights to boast about the 4k resolution screen as it is reviewed and applauded by many of the users. This is one of the best affordable notebooks for those who do not want to keep a huge budget for laptops. And most importantly, this is truly a laptop meant for everyday tasks. The Intel core i3 processor and 2GB AMD Radeon graphics make this a perfect buy for a gamer. Another interesting feature about Dell Inspiron is the simplistic and clean display design. The keyboard sports the LED backlights and houses the bare minimum of ports – 2x USB 2.0, one USB 3.0, HDMI, RJ-45 and a card reader. I feel this is truly a budget notebook.

The configuration will be varying from core i3- core i7 chip and you can choose between this range. The price varies for each design and system. The laptop comes with 4 cell battery which would last for about 4 hours. Lenovo also features full HD screen but you can also settle for the less detailed panel with HD (1366×768) resolution.

Best Laptops in India Under 50,000Acer is a Taiwanese Multinational hardware and electronics corporation and one of the best laptop brands in the market. Acer Aspire is always a good choice for everyday use and office works. There are a lot of attractive features and specifications that would exceed the users’ expectations. Moreover, the look and feel of the laptop is unbeatable. It is not that heavy as compared to HP and Dell laptops. The hardware of the laptop is not all that catchy. It is the usual Pentium processor but that is more than sufficientto make the regular users delightful. The camera in the front is a 720p HD webcam which is decent enough to do video chatting. My verdict would be that these are laptops meant for browsing, checking emails, streaming youtube etc and not for an ardent gamer.
