A laptop today is considered an essential item – from attending online classes to working from home, there is no running away from the charm of a laptop. While many will disagree and claim that doing heavy work is always better on a stable desktop, it is true that laptops are unavoidable today.
|Laptops||Price in India|
|HP 255 G8 Laptop 3K9U2PA||₹37,470.00|
|Dell 15 (2021) Intel i3-1005G1 Laptop||₹40,990.00|
|ASUS VivoBook 14||₹39,990.00|
|Lenovo IdeaPad 3 10th Gen||₹36,490.00|
There is another reality that must be considered – technology gets obsolete very often and, hence, there is always a need to invest in a new device every few years. While changing a desktop may not be very convenient (for the sheer number of components, if nothing else), a laptop is easy to invest in or dispose off and re-invest. How often does your laptop hang? Has its sound card been damaged? Then, it is time to invest in a new one.
In such a scenario, investing in a laptop in the price range of under ₹40,000 is a good idea. They are not very expensive and yet come with all the latest components and applications.
In case, you are planning to exchange your old laptop or invest in a new one, here are some options to consider. These are good options to consider even if you are a first-time buyer.
