I can understand that, sometimes it is really difficult for you to go through the full article and to make it easier for you, under the section I am going to list some of the really important things which you should consider before buying the laptop:

  • If you have a budget of 40,000 to 45,000 which means you can definitely buy and nicely assembled laptop. here are the fuel specifications you should look for if you have a good budget: 1920 x 1080 screen >> Intel core i5 7th gen processor. >> 1TB SSD storage >> 8 GB RAM.
  • How can we forget the screen size which adds to the beauty of your device. If you have a healthy budget you should always look for a 12.5 inch to 14 inches screen size. This is an ideal size which actually makes the laptop easy to carry and also produces nice display.

  • For those who belongs to the category of business where they have to travel a lot, never forget to check the battery life of the laptop you are buying. Your laptop should have at least 8 + hours of battery performance.

And now when we are done with the speed guide let's see in details the factors you should consider before buying the laptop.

Platform / Operating System

Before selecting the platform you should know the advantages and disadvantages of the same. And if you are in a situation where you don't have any information about the platform it becomes really tough for you to select the one.

Majority of the laptops have Chrome OS, Windows or Mac OS. However, choosing the one among these three is a tough task. So let's see which is going to be the better platform for you:

  • If you want to hear OS to be budget friendly and the one you can customise easily than you can definitely go for Windows 10. Whatever you need from fingerprint readers to enhanced GPU you will get with Windows OS. Windows 10 has come up with many new and better features than that of Windows 8. it is very easy to use Windows OS and that is what made this one the most popular OS in the world.
  • Are you a fan of Mac OS you can go for its latest version High Sierra? You will find the latest version of the Mac OS in almost every Apple's desktop. Though there is not much difference between Windows 10 and Mac OS, only the interface of both the OS looks different from each other. Like in Windows you have to go to the desktop to view all the icons however in Mac all the icons and applications are present at the bottom of the screen in the Apps Dock. Here users get features like Siri, Apple pay, Apple watch and many more. However, with Mac OS, you don't get the touch screen feature, which is only available in MacBook.
  • Chrome OS is the one found in the low budget laptops are Chromebooks. Chrome OS is easy to use and secure but when get compared with Windows and Mac OS it is less in features. You will get this OS in budget Chromebooks like Samsung Chromebook 3. Chrome OS looks pretty much similar to Windows. Chrome OS is battery efficient and very portable. If you are willing to buy a laptop just to search the web and watch videos then you can definitely go for Chrome OS.

Laptop Size

The size of the laptop is what decides its usability and hence we have kept size in the second position.

  • Thinnest all the lightest laptop comes with the screen size of 10 to 12 inches. They are light in weight and very easy to carry. So if you are into a moving business you can go with this one.
  • If you are looking for something which is durable, good in weight and also possible then you can consider the screen size of 13 to 14 inches. with the weight of nearly 3.5 pounds to 4 pounds, this screen size of the laptop is a little less portable than the smaller sized ones.
  • Some people doesn't want their laptop to be much portable and wanted it to be stuck over the desk, then they can go with the 17 to 18-inch screen size desktop. The screen size of laptops is generally designed keeping the game players in mind.

2 in 1 Laptops

2 in 1 laptop are the latest range of laptops available in the market.

 As the name suggest you let this laptop be the usual keyboard attached laptop or can even detach the keyboard and use it as a touch screen tablet. Other than these two modes few laptops like the Lenovo yoga series, is flexible enough to convert into a tent shape or into a standing shape for a proper display.

This type of laptops is we more portable than the usual laptops. If you want to move with it you can easily convert into a tablet and if you want some typing you can easily attach the keyboard using the detachable magnets. Even the viewing experience of search laptops are we better than the traditional laptops.

If you are willing to go for the 2 in 1 laptop, you should always keep in mind that the bendable laptops like Lenovo yoga series have better battery performance than those of the laptops with detachable keyboards.

Budget

Doesn't matter whatever you are going to buy your budget plays a very vital role. The laptops have become very much budget friendly these days. With the starting price of Rs 12,000 to Rs 15,000, you will even see the high-end laptops with the pricing above 1,00,000 rupees.

  • For those who are a little budget cautious and want your laptop to be under Rs 15,000 to 18,000, you can go without Chrome OS-based Chromebooks or Notebooks. We generally buy this price range of laptops to give it to our kids. Even though low-cost Windows OS is also available in this price range. Laptops like Dell Inspiron 11 and HP stream 11 are a good option in this category.
  • Do you have a decent budget that is from 20000 rupees to 45000 rupees? Yes! Then you can get a decent laptop, stuffed with many good features. mostly days laptops come with Intel Core i5 7th generation processor and 4GB or 8GB RAM. At this price range, you generally do not get the SSD storage. You may also get 500 GB hard drive, which can possibly be 1TB in some laptops. You can consider Asus VivoBook E403NA and Acer Aspire E5 as a good option in this category. In this price range also you get Windows OS as a very common operating system pre-installed in the laptops.
  • If you have a healthy budget from rupees 50,000 to 65,000 you are going to get the best laptop ready to satisfy all your demands. These laptops can be configured with 8GB RAM and 1TB SSD storage. You can even get good battery life and a strong girl design laptop under this price section. Though, MacBook is still a dream for this category.
  • Are you ready to pay about 65,000 for your laptop? Then you can buy an idealized laptop. Laptops like Dell XPS 13 and Apple MacBook falls under this section. You can get OS like Windows 10 and Mac OS loaded with high-end applications. The laptops above Rs 80,000 are also great in display and GPU allowing the user to get the perfect gaming feel.

More Technical Details...

CPUs - The Computer's Brain

CPU is the brain of your computer and you should be very cautious while selecting the same. Intel Core i3 processor is for those who want their laptop to be in the budget and perform just minimum task. Most of the Chromebooks and affordable notebooks use this processor.

If you are looking for a laptop that can deliver both performances and should be in your budget then you can go with Intel Core i5 processor. If you want it to be great in performance, productivity, gaming and processing then Intel Core i7 processor will be a better option for you.

RAM - processing determiner

RAM or Random Access Memory is responsible for providing your computer the speed to process the data. you can even find laptops with 2GB of RAM but I would suggest you go for at least 4 GB RAM laptops. However, 8GB and 16GB RAM are ideal options.

Storage - content & space capabilities

Obviously, we want a laptop to be good in storage.

The modern SSD (solid state drive) laptops are better in performance than that of the traditional hard drive install laptops. Though, the SSD laptops are expensive than the hard drive laptops if you want your device to be faster and good in storage then you should go with the SSD ones.

Battery Life

You buy a laptop because you want a portable device and that is why you should always consider the battery life of your machine before buying it.

Your laptop should always give you more than 8 hours of battery life and should always charge faster. On the other hand, if you are buying a bulky laptop, just to work by keeping it on the dash then you need not worry much about its battery life.

Use this buyer guide and select the best budget laptop.
