Top 10 Best Budget Laptops Under Rs. 20,000

Laptops are an integral piece of tech in today’s ever growing and never stopping world where working on the go is more of a requirement than anything else.

These machines are portable and can do a range of tasks depending upon their configuration and form factor all though they are still no match to their desktop counterparts but in terms of mobility they are unmatched and untouched even by the once growing threat from tablets and iPads.

But everyone doesn’t want a high end laptop and want something that would sail him through the day to day tasks at office, school and college along with enough power to help one relax with a movie playback and other recreational multimedia related activities.

So today I would compile a list of the best laptops under the Rs 20,000 range available in India today that fir this category of users just perfectly.

Before we proceed lets clear up a few things about the kind of laptops you will find in this list.

What they are exactly meant for so as to give you a clear view of what you are in for.

1) These laptops come with basic configurations and nothing too fancy which is enough for daily office, school and college work.

3) Gaming is out of context and you can only expect to run very basic titles or mostly recreational flash games.

4) Medium to small screen along with light weight and good connectivity options is a must as we want it to be as portable as possible.
