Buying a laptop in this range is always tricky with hardly any noticeable difference in the specifications among various models available on the market. When you decide to buy a laptop under Rs 40,000, the options at your disposal will include a mix of powerful as well as basic devices. However, with little effort, you can easily get the most bang for your buck. Here is a list of the best laptops under 40,000 available in India.
Just like several other laptops offered by Acer, Aspire 5 A515-51G is packed with features which are too good at this price point. You get an Intel Core i5 7200u processor with a clock speed of 2.5 GHz and 8GB of DDR4 RAM capable of executing a range of tasks without any lag. It is also equipped with a 2 GB NVIDIA GeForce 940m Graphics card ensuring decent gaming performance for games that are moderately demanding. With no DVD drive, the laptop is sleek but weighs 2.2 Kg. The pre-installed OS is Linux and will require a genuine installation of Windows if desired by the user.
The Lenovo Yoga 510 is a 14-inch 2-in-1 convertible that is designed with high-quality materials giving it a premium look and feel. The device is powered by an Intel Core i3 processor with a clock speed of 2 GHz along with 4GB of DDR4 RAM. You do not get a dedicated graphics processor, but an Intel Integrated HD Graphics chip does the heavy lifting for the most part. The keyboard and touchpad are robustly built with perfect spaces in-between the keys and have a matte finish.
The HP 15-be003TX packs a lot of punch with its features, yet disappoints with some noticeable flaws. For some users, this could be the best bang for the buck, whereas for other there are better options available. HP has used powerful components such as the Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 2 GB AMD Radeon R5 M430. Notably, the processor is the 5th generation with a clock speed of only 2 GHz which is way lower than the competitors. The laptops boots DOS as there is no pre-installed Windows OS or Linux.
The Lenovo Ideapad IP 320 is one of the best machines available in terms of the hardware at this price point. The screen is not a full HD display and employes the anti-glare TN type panel, further reducing its viewing angles.Under the hood, the Intel Core i3 6th Gen and 8GB of DDR4 RAM power the laptop. For avid gamers, there is a 2GB Nvidia Graphics card that can handle basic games. The storage offered is a massive 1 TB HDD that should be sufficient for normal usage.
The Dell Vostro 3468 is a no-frills work laptop that can cope with most of your work requirements. The laptop at 1.8 kg weighs far lesser than its competitors in this segment, making it likeably portable. The Vostro 3468 gets a matte finish on the casing making it easy to carry. However, the same matte finish is extended to the main deck which may not be suitable for long hours of typing. Under the hood, an Intel i3 - 7100U 7th Gen processor with a clock speed of 2.4 GHz and a 4GB DDR4 RAM ensure a lag-free performance. You also get a fingerprint sensor to securely unlock your device, a feature not seen in this range.
As we have seen in the listabove, there are a range of options available that can cater to your various needs. It is still relevant to make a purchase while keeping your needs in mind. Manufacturers usually offer products that are not packed with high-end specs, yet good enough to get the job done.
More or less you will get the same specification at this range. So, you need to dig a little deeper and check the finer details of the processor and other hardware. The minor difference can help you get a machine with better performance.
Going for a 2-in-1 is totally up to your personal choice. The features and performance are more or less the same as traditional laptops. If you need a laptop for business use, emphasise on the keyboard layout and the ease of its use.
