There are several affordable Laptops (Windows and Google ChromeOS) available in the Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 25,000.

The challenge with Windows laptops in the low price range is that they are underpowered and most of them don't offer a great user experience.

However, ChromeBooks (Google Chrome OS-based laptops) in this price range are worth considering. ChromeOS works well even with low system configuration and it is lightweight and performs well for most tasks.
