Easy Laptop Buying Guide for Beginners – 2021

After the Covid-19 pandemic almost every business is moving online, schools and colleges carry out online classes.

It becomes very much essential to buy a laptop that will last forever. This is the least that we expect when we buy a laptop, isn’t it?

I mean, at least it should run for years!

Having so many options to choose from, it becomes very much difficult to buy the right laptop.

Sometimes we wish someone should have explained an easy laptop buy guide to choose the right one.

Even the known techie guy in your acquaintances will sometime fail to guide you buying a right laptop for your requirement.

So, let’s look at all the aspects you need to know before buying your next laptop.

What to Expect from a Rs. 60,000 Laptop?

As I said earlier, I have researched extensively to list only the best laptops in the price range of Rs. 60,000. But before going to the list, for your convenience, I want you to go through the important points to consider before buying a laptop in this price range.

Basically, below are the several hardware specs or software bundle that you must consider in the Rs. 60,000 range of laptops for different needs. Of course, you do not need all the hardware spec or software in your laptop.

So, as per different use case, below are the listed hardware and software bundle to consider before buying a laptop. There are certain hardware and software need required for specific needs, which I will mention separately.

  1. Processor:
    – Intel Core i5 10th / 9th Gen
    – AMD Ryzen 5 / 7 3000 series

    Only mid range Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5 / 7 3000 series will be available in this price range.
  2. RAM: DDR4 8GB minimum
    DDR4 16 GB RAM at a speed of 2400MHz or anything higher is the best option you can get but it is rarely available at the price range of Rs. 60,000.
  3. Storage: 512GB SSD or 1TB HDD (minimum spec to consider)
    Any combo storage of SSD + HDD is better option with a minimum of 1TB HDD configuration.
  4. Display: 1920 x 1080 minimum
    For gaming, a higher refresh rate of a display is better.
  5. Battery: at least 8 hours of backup time
    A laptop purchased for a purpose of online education / office work should have a better battery backup at the cost of lower performance (usually ends in without a graphics card).
  6. Connectivity: HDMI port, USB ports, SD card etc.
    Typically most of the laptops have basic ports that include 1 HDMI port, 1 USB-C port, 2 to 4 USB 3 ports, an SD card reader and a headphone Mic jack, a RJ45 LAN port. Anything more than that is an added advantage.
  7. Preinstalled software(s): MS Windows and MS Office
    Students, teachers and working professionals require Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, Outlook etc. which are part of MS Office.
  8. Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 1650 or Nvidia MX 350 (minimum)
    Graphics card is only required for gaming and video editing purpose.
