In today’s world Laptops have evolved into something that we need and not something we want for entertainment purposes. Of course, smartphones are evolving at lightning pace but laptops still definitely have their place and have a lot of different uses when compared to a smartphone. In India, you can get a pretty solid laptop for under 50,000 rupees but it mostly depends on what you want to do with that laptop. Let’s take a look at a list of laptops under 50,000 rs.
Lenovo IdeaPad S145 – 81MV009AIN
As far as the brand itself it is considered one of the best laptop brands out there thanks to the functionality and versatility they bring to the table. This laptop has an Intel Core i5-8265U CPU and it’s one of the best ones you can get for that kind of money. It gives a base speed of 1.6 GHz, which may look a bit on the slower side at first glance but it can be boosted up to 3.9 GHz which is more than double.
It has 8GB of RAM memory and it has a 256GB SSD which makes everyday usage a joy. The RAM memory enables you to have many different things going on at the same time and the SSD makes sure you do all those things as efficiently as you can. It has an anti-glare screen which gives you great viewing angles and the only flaw is the GPU so you won’t be able to play many modern games.
Acer Swift 3 14inch FHD IPS Display Notebook
This laptop is best used as a multi-tasker, for entertainment and work. Just like the last laptop mentioned this one has one of the best CPU on the market at this price point. It’s the 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8250U. It has 8GB of RAM memory and 512GB SSD. The SSD storage is a real big plus for this laptop since it enables you to store so many things on it while keeping it very fast.
The presence of the UHD Graphics 620 makes it a good one for gaming, but not great. Since this is an integrated GPU it is not really meant for heavy gaming sessions or very modern games. But the games you do end up playing will look amazing on its 14-inch IPS screen.
Dell Inspiron 3576 core i5 8th Gen 8250U
Dell, a very well-known company in the laptop industry gave us a very versatile laptop. This laptop has the same 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8250U CPU, just like the last one and it runs at a base clock speed of 1.6 GHz. But unlike the first two laptops, this one has a dedicated GPU and it’s an AMD R5 M430 Graphics card with 2GB of memory. So this laptop is much better for gaming.
But in order to balance out the price of the laptop they had to remove something and this case it was the RAM memory, you have only 4GB of memory here which isn’t really enough for today’s standards but it will still be enough for college students. You can always buy more RAM when needed.
This laptop also doesn’t have an SSD but it has 1TB of HDD storage. So instead of speed and efficiency, this laptop has quantity over quality.
HP 14q cs0017TU i5 8th Gen 14-inch Laptop
This laptop comes in at the around the same price as the Dell but with very different hardware. This HP comes with the amazing Intel Core i5-8265U CPU which has a base clock speed of 1.6 GHz and a boost up to 3.9 GHz, which doubles its speed. Just like the dell, this HP laptop comes with only 4GB of RAM but it has 1TB of HDD storage. This makes it a laptop for everyday use and not for gaming since it only has an integrated GPU.
Now when it comes to the screen, it’s a 14-inch HD screen which is great for watching videos and movies, since it offers some great viewing angles and the colours really pop out. The laptop overall is very lightweight and very mobile, it weighs only 1.59 kg. The battery is also very good since the laptop can go around 7 hours without a charge.
Lenovo IdeaPad 330 – 81DE012PIN 15.6-inch Laptop
Another Lenovo laptop that differs a bit from the other one. Now instead of the 8265U Intel CPU, It has the Intel Core i5-8250U CPU which is a bit less popular nowadays then the other one. It has a base clock speed of 1.6 GHz and a boost speed of 3.4 GHz. So it is a bit slower than its counterpart but it still gets the job done.
As for the GPU compartment, it is a lot better since it has an AMD Radeon 530 GDDR5 Graphics card with 2GB of memory. Since this is a dedicated GPU it is going to perform much better in games than an integrated one. When it comes to memory this laptop is pretty good, it has an HDD of 2TB and 8GB of RAM, so if you’re looking for a gaming laptop at this price range then you’ve chosen wisely with this one. It also has a 15.6-inch screen with Anti-Glare technology.
HP 14CS1000TU 14-inch Laptop
And here we have another HP model which has a smaller than the standard screen but it does not impact its performance at all, it’s a very well-built laptop. It has an 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8250U which is by far the most common CPU in all of these laptops. When you look at the GPU it does not impress really since it is an integrated GPU, this laptop is not meant for gaming.
Now when you look at the memory of the laptop you have a 1TN HDD storage and 8GB of RAM which is pretty decent. 8GB is standard nowadays and the HDD storage is okay, but you could always go for an SSD. Considering all its specs you could say that this is a great laptop for engineering students, you can always take them with you and it has good battery life without a charger.
ASUS VivoBook X407UF-EK140T 14.0-inch Thin and Light Laptop
This laptop is a compact one but carries one hell of a punch. It has the very common 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8250U CPU that as already mentioned still gives you all that you need form a CPU and this price point. Now even though this laptop has a 14-inch screen, it’s still an FHD one and still gives you great gaming experience. Especially since this laptop has the best GPU in this list yet – it has an NVidia GeForce MX130 GDDR5 2GB graphics.
Now let’s move onto the memory and storage. It has 1TB of HDD storage and 8GB of RAM memory. Taking all things into consideration this is definitely the best gaming laptop here. And even if you decide not to use it for gaming you can’t go wrong.
We’ve made a list of 7 laptops we think have a good quality to price ratio and also made sure to make the very versatile so they can fill all your needs, be it gaming, work or just entertainment.
