Best Laptops Under Rs 30000 for Coding, Students, Office

Best laptops Below 30k in India (2022) – This hand-picked list of Windows laptops is suitable for students, coding, programmers, software engineers, office goers, and home users. Most of these laptops use Intel Core i3, as there are no laptops available with Intel Core i5/i7 in this price range. I have tried to include laptops powered by Windows 11 with 8GB ram and SSD storage.

These are best for doing tasks like web browsing, attending online classes, watching movies, listening to songs, doing office work, coding, programming & casual gaming. Higher configurations are desired for gaming, video rendering, advanced coding, and heavy processor-oriented programming (Best Gaming Laptops 60k to 70k).

You should seek some background on the general configuration when buying a laptop for Rupees 25000 to 35000.

There are many different types of processors that you will find commonly in current laptops–

  • Intel Core i3 10/11th Gen Processors.
  • AMD Ryzen 3 3200U or the Ryzen 5 3500U, AMD A8

Performance-Wise Core i3 (10th Gen) or even if you can get a 9th Gen Intel Processor will be ideal. These are the latest Intel Processors, and you should avoid buying Intel 7th Gen or 8th gen processors that are, infact, more than three years old.
