Top Five Budget Laptops for Study and Entertainment

The right laptops for all your needs, now in your reach and more especially budget. Gone are the days when you had to invest a good amount of money to get your hands on a decent laptop. Nowadays with all the competition out there, getting your hands on a laptop is conveniently easy. Besides, not everyone wants a high-performance giving laptop. Some people just wanna browse the net while others just wanna tend to their emails and typing related tasks. Some just wanna stream tv or movie for a little downtime.

Top Five Budget Laptops for Study and Entertainment

To start off there are three major kinds of operating systems out there, Windows by Microsoft, Mac OS by Apple, and last but not the least the Chrome OS by Google. Since its, a well-known fact that Apple just doesn’t do budget laptops, so it's down to choosing between Google’s Chrome OS or Microsoft’s Windows laptops.

 

Now while choosing a budget or any sort of laptop, one ought to have a look at the specifications or more importantly the screen size the RAMs and vice versa.

 

Let’s see what the market has in offer for the current budget friendly needs. So the top five budget laptops (in my opinion) can be noted as follows:

 

HONOR MAGICBOOK 14

This is the best performance packed windows laptop priced at 660$. It has a clear, sharp full HD screen best fit for watching films and tv. Its performance is also noticeable web surfing and word processing related tasks. Its battery last 9hours while video playbacks.

ACER SWIFT 3

This laptop also coped well with the general word processing tasks and web surfing but it lacks a bit in the performance sector as compared to the above-mentioned laptop. The laptop is compact which makes it easy to carry it around. Though its battery is a bit average, only lasting for 6 hours but I think that the price range suffices it for the deficit in the battery and the performance. Its priced at 565$.

ACER CHROMEBOOK 314

The third on the list is the Acer Chromebook 314, which is a 14-inch lightweight laptop. It's running on Chrome OS and like many other Chrome OS models, it doesn’t come with much in the aspects of storage. It is a great select for when doing word processing tasks and photo editing as it performs tasks like a charm. But, its downside could be felt while surfing the web and opening apps as it's not as fast but it makes it up with its amazing battery life which is amazingly 14 hours. Its priced at 260$.

ACER CHROMEBOOK SPIN 311

For the price of 399$ you practically are getting your hands on a touchscreen laptop, which can also be turned into a tablet just by folding the screen over. It comes with an 11.5-inch screen which can be a turn down for many people since big screens laptops are the hype everywhere plus like many other affordable chrome books, it isn’t a fast chrome book but great for the people on a budget none the less.

LENOVO IDEAPAD C340

Priced at 500$, this laptop comes packed with a 15.6-inch display and capable of coping well with simple photo editing tasks and word processing. One of the fascinating features is it has a 360-degree rotate-able screen, plus it can be folded to make it or use it as a tablet. It is a bit bulky and heavy in its structure so, can carrying it around might be a hurdle. The battery life on this laptop isn’t that great either, kindly below par giving only around 2 hours in video playbacks.
