10 Best Laptops Under Rs 30000 January 2017

The under RS 30,000 laptop range includes basic models, many configured only with DOS and requiring buyers to load advanced operating systems such as Windows, Linux or Ubuntu. High-end features such as super-powerful processors and advanced gaming capacity are unlikely in this price range. Under-Rs 30,000 laptops are best suited for basic student or home Internet/email usage with some light gaming. It is rare to find any stand-out features in a laptop within this price range.

Acer E5-573 Aspire

Acer E5 573

The Acer E5-573 Aspire model ships with the 4th Generation i3 Core, 1.7 GHz processor, HD graphics 4400 with shared memory, 4 GB RAM and a 1 TB hard drive. The 15.6 inch screen features anti-glare technology and a screen resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

User satisfaction ratings for the Acer laptop are good for the keyboard and overall portability of the product, as well as the usability for the price. The E5-573 is adequate but not exciting in any particular feature, according to most reviews, which should be expected for a budget-priced laptop.

Dell Vostro 14 V3446

Dell Vostro 3446

The Dell Vostro 14 V3446 laptop ships preloaded with the Ubuntu open-source OS, an unusual option for laptops in the budget price range.

This Vostro model operates with a 1.7 GHz Intel Core i3 processor, 4 GB RAM and a 500 GB hard drive. 2 GB of dedicated graphics memory and an NVIDIA graphics card ensure the Dell Vostro has ample performance for most graphics-intense operations.

Lenovo Essential G405 59-41570

Lenovo-Essential G405

In contrast to the Lenovo G40-45, the Essential G405 is a stripped-down model that offers less processing speed and functionality. It is suitable for basic MS-Office tasks, internet browsing and listening to music, but may not hold up for gaming or other graphics-intensive operations.

It does feature a 6-cell Li-Ion battery, giving it slightly longer battery backup than other laptops in the budget class. The Essential model also provides two USB 3.0 ports as opposed to the one found in most other models. However, sound systems are scaled back significantly from the F40-45 model,

The Essential G405 laptop utilizes the AMD A4 5000 1.5 GHz processor, 2 GB RAM, and a 500 GB hard drive. It ships only with DOS, so users must install their own operating system. The 14-inch screen is basic, running from the AMD/Radeon HD 8330 Graphics unit.   There are the aforementioned two USB 3.0 slots, as well as a single USB 2.0 port, 1 HDMI port, a VGA port and multi-card slots.

The unit does not come with a CD of drivers, so they must be downloaded from the Lenovo site. This has been a customer service frustration to some buyers. Other concerns noted are a fragile keyboard. However, the Lenovo Essential laptop can handle Microsoft Office, browsing the Internet and listening to music with no difficulty.

Lenovo G50-70 59-422421 15.6-inch

Lenovo G50 70

The Lenovo G50 Laptop, on the other hand, represents a step up in laptops, both in processing, viewing and added features. Its processor is the 1.9 GHz i3 4th Generation Core i3 with 3 MG L2 cache and 4 GB RAM. An Intel 4400 HD Graphics processor and 1 TB hard drive, RW DVD player and installed Windows 8.1 make the Lenovo G50 user-friend from the start.

The HD LED screen is 15.6 inches with excellent resolution for high viewing quality, good viewing angles, and brightness. Two 1.5 watt speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio and a built-in microphone support the onboard webcam. A Rambo optical drive with R/W speed of 9x allows users to burn music, watch movies and load software. The laptop supports nearly every popular format of audio and video.

The laptop weighs in at only 3.1 kg and comes with a matte finish. Even with all the hardware, it is still thinner than most 15.6 laptops. It uses a standard 4-cell battery with about 4 hours battery backup and an AC charger. This unit is not appropriate for high-end uses like Autocad, Photoshop, heavy gaming or professional software development. However, it is suitable for professionals, students and family members in everyday gaming, regular office, and home use and student use. Within this price range, the Lenovo G50-15.6-inch is a top contender for best-in-class.

It multitasks with ease, thanks to adequate processing power, and it is a solid entry in the under-RS 30,000 market.
