There are very few options for Windows-based laptops in the price range of Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 25,000. Also, there are some ChromeBooks (Google Chrome OS-based laptops) that are available in this price range that are worth considering.

The challenge with the Windows laptop in this range is that they are underpowered and don’t offer a great user experience.

ChromeBooks on the other hand can work well even with low configuration machines.

I am including some of the laptops under Rs. 15,000, 20,000 and 25,000. Prices of the new laptops have slightly increased after the Covid-19 and also due to the increased taxes.

The Windows/OSX gives you many options to add bulky software and is ideal for creating content, reports, and image & video editing.

On the other hand, Chrome OS is ideal for web browsing and working on docs and Google spreadsheets, presentations, and watching online videos.

The Chrome OS is lightweight, doesn’t need very high-end hardware to run it. Chromebook offers a good experience for online surfing, emails (with Gmail offline support) to make it ideal for students and office professionals who have limited tasks to perform.

Let’s Check out the Best Laptops in the 15,000 to Rs. 25,000 price Range.

4. Nexian Chrome Book (Long battery, Light Weight, Economical)

Best Laptop Under Rs 15000: The Nexian Chromebook is powered by the Rockchip ARM cortex Quad-core 1.8 GHz processor with 2 GB DDr3 RAM and has 16 GB internal storage.  The GPU is an ARM Mali-T764 Graphics chipset.

3 Best Laptop Under Rs 15000 India

It also comes with an SD card slot where you can add an SD card as you add a micro-sd card to your smartphone to extend the storage.

If you are going to use the Chromebook other than official work you will find the 16 GB storage fill up fast with HD videos, music, and images. It will be great to get a 64 GB SD Card along with the Chromebook to have some space options.

The screen size is  11.6-inch with a 1366*768 display, which is pretty good considering the size of the Notebook.

The Chromebook offers two USB 2.0 ports to connect to USB devices like 3G dongles or pen drives or external Hard drives. It also has an HDMI port for connecting to other devices like a projector or a large monitor.

The Nexian chrome book weighs 1.5 KG and has a 4200 mAH battery, which is good to run the Notebook for 4-6 hours depending upon the usage.

There’s also a 1.0 MP web camera catering to your needs of video conferencing.

Pros Cons
Light OS can boot fast.Low processing power
Good battery life can work for 6-7 hours.Lacks applications and support for full-fledged software suites like Microsoft Office
Economical Price.Struggles with large excel files and long excel queries.
Good for working online watching movies and videos.Storage is low only 16 GB can’t save much data.
Limited App support if you use Gimp, .NET & Advance paint, and other software like Adobe Reader.

A good alternative to Tabs but doing all the work that a full-fledged laptop can do may be difficult in some situations. For the low price of Rs. 12,999 it is a good device for doing basic work.

4. Xolo Chromebook (Quad-Core Processor, 2 GB RAM)

It is mostly the same hardware, as the Nexian Chromebook with Rockchip ARM cortex Quad-core 1.8 GHz processor with 2 GB DDr3 RAM and has 16 GB internal storage.

The GPU is an ARM Mali-T764 Graphics chipset.  The resolution on the Xolo Chromebook is lower compared to the Nexian Chromebook with 1280*720 pixels.

3 Best Laptop Under Rs 15000 India

The laptop is lighter in weight too, weighs only 1.15 KG.

It also suffers from the same drawbacks of low storage and limited processing power and lacks support for software that Windows laptops offer.

The price is meager at Rs. 12,999, which makes it ideal for students, who would like reading and net surfing and also enjoy a long battery life.

Comparing the Xolo Chrome Book and the Nexian Chrome Book

  • The Nexian Chrome book comes in white color and has nice contours. The Xolo Chromebook comes in Matte Black finish and is lighter in weight compared to the Nexian Chromebook.
  • The resolution is higher on the Nexian Chromebook Vs. the Xolo Chromebook.  Nexian Chromebook offers a 1366*768 resolution, compared to 1280*720 pixels by the Xolo.
  • Further, the keyboard on the Nexian is better and easy to use compared to the Xolo Chromebook.
  • Lastly, the Xolo Chromebook uses a micro-sd card while the Nexian offers support only for an SD card. (The SD card is different compared to the micro-SD card). You can use a microSD card with your smartphone and Xolo Chromebook, to transfer data between the two devices quickly.

With both the Chromebooks, you get a 100 GB Google Cloud storage, you can store all your data on the cloud instead of storing locally.  The Chromebooks are based on the premise that users will store and use data that is located on the cloud.

I found this to be useless as it is very difficult without high-speed internet to upload things to the cloud and then download them to use.  Even if you use a 50 MBPS line broadband line, as I do, it will still take 5 minutes to upload 1 GB to the cloud. Besides, you will have to spend the same time to download from the cloud.

The cost of the internet also increases if you are planning to have a high-speed line.  I only store very critical docs on the cloud or some of the files which I need to access on multiple devices remotely.

The idea of using cloud storage as replacement of local storage on HDD doesn’t appeal to me, neither I find it practical to use. So, should you buy the Chromebook, I would say yes if you need to do simple work like email, reading, surfing, etc… The Chromebooks are excellent with light Chrome OS and offer long battery life.

What else can you buy if you are like me and want to do a lot of other different work on the laptop?

You want to run photoshop, basic video editing, need to use excel and Microsoft office, use image editing software like Gimp and Advanced Paint.  Also, want to play some PC games which may be old like Fifa or Counterstrike or Need for Speed in the free time.

A laptop with a large HDD can store movies, videos, and lots of music and pictures along with PDF files and ebooks which can’t be done on a Chromebook.

If you are willing to spend more and can afford to buy an Rs. 25,000 Laptop I would recommend to get a decent laptop which may be useful for 4-5 years. Read – Best Laptops Under Rs. 30,000.

Personally, I would buy a good AMD A8 or Core i3 Laptop and look for a full-fledged solution for doing all the tasks.

There is currently one HP Model which is trading at Rs. 25,500 and offer decent performance over the Chromebook.
