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.
Windows Os gives you many options to add bulky software and is ideal for creating content, reports, working on office documents, and presentations.
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.
