1. Lenovo Ideapad 130

Value for Money Laptop
  • 5 hours of battery life
  • Robust build quality
  • Powerful performance

Lenovo has been a major player in the Indian laptop market for a long time now.

The company has been in the left, right and centre of the budget laptop segment with a lot of great products that the users liked.

The Lenovo Ideapad 130 is one of the latest entries to the mid-range budget laptop catalogue in the country.

Build Quality and Design

Lenovo makes some of the best looking laptops in the world.

Whatever be the price bracket it fits in, Lenovo provides an aesthetically pleasing design which is often combined with the great build quality.

The Ideapad 130 is one of the finest looking laptops, if not the best in its category.

The metallic design inspired chassis makes the device look and feel premium.

Comparatively minimal bezels on either side of the display are stunning and make the display look even bigger than it is in reality.

Also, the company has an improved hinge mechanism which allows up to 180-degree rotation.

However, we’re still not sure what advantage does this bring to the table.

Processor and Performance

Fret not, the good qualities of this laptop doesn’t end with the looks.

Inside the chassis is a Core i5 eighth-generation processor which is the latest entry-level mobile processor from Intel.

This processor is clocked at 1.1GHz and has a maximum clock speed of 3.4GHz, which for a laptop under the budget of Rs.35,000 offers an interesting mix of performance and battery life.

With the onboard 4GB DDR4 RAM, this laptop performs on par with laptops powered by Intel processors inside.

The Intel integrated UHD 620 integrated graphics is the best out there and will chew through most of the resource-hungry applications related to graphics and gaming effortlessly.

This will give you an upper hand in the graphics-intensive process and even some light gaming, to say the least.

The standard 1TB HDD will let you save all your files offline with no worries about the space being run out after installing a couple of apps.


Lenovo usually provides very good display panels with their laptops. Same is the case with the Ideapad 130 as well.

This 15.6-inch display is an HD panel with an effective resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

The colours are bright and vivid and the contrast levels are up to the mark.

There is no noticeable pixelation in texts and everything appears fine and clear.

The thin side bezels enhance the immersive experience with the display when you are watching video content.


The Lenovo Ideapad 130 comes loaded with the Windows 10 operating system out of the box.

Everything is pre-configured from the factory and it makes sure that the customer can start using the system as soon as he opens the box.

Lenovo provides a one year warranty with this device.

In case something unfortunate happens, you can always visit the nearest service centre for repairs thanks to the wide service centre network of Lenovo in India.

Battery Life

The Lenovo Ideapad 130 comes with a 2-cell Lithium-ion battery inside.

This will let the device run for about 5 hours on moderate usage with 55% brightness.

If you are running games or watching movies at full brightness, the screen on time will reduce drastically and be sure to have the charger at an arm’s length.


For a laptop priced under Rs.35,000, the Lenovo Ideapad 130 is a steal.

With a fairly excellent screen and a powerful processor inside having excellent graphics performance, this laptop is worthy to be the best in the business in its price category.

The aesthetically pleasing looks and the excellent build quality further adds charm to this product.

2. Acer Aspire A515-51

Runner-Up Pick
  • Powerful processor inside
  • Future proof upgradability
  • Average display quality

Acer has been at the forefront of releasing budget laptops laden with useful features and impressive internals for a while.

The Aspire A515-51 is one of the low-cost laptops that comes with an eighth-generation Intel processor on board.

Let’s dive into more details of this gem without any further ado.

Design and build quality

The Aspire A515-51 comes with a brushed metal chassis that looks classy.

Usually, Acer laptops possess some of the best build quality that you can expect with budget laptops.

The sturdy hinge works so well that there is minimal to almost no friction when lifting the display.

The keyboard is well laid out with sufficient space in between and offers great key travel distance.

There is a lot of room for ventilation on the bottom side of this laptop.

But we are quite sceptical about the effectiveness as when the laptop is placed on a flat surface, there is a chance that the hot air will circulate within the chassis.

The RAM and HDD compartments are placed on the backside and easily swappable with the removal of a single screw.

This means upgradability is not an issue with this laptop.


This is the area where the Acer Aspire laptop trumps others on this list to their knees without much effort.

Inside the laptop, there is an Intel Core i5 -8250U processor that is the absolute best you can get in this price bracket.

This four-core processor along with the integrated Intel 620 will fly through almost all the apps effortlessly.

You can even play light games with this laptop albeit the fact that there isn’t a dedicated GPU inside.

The 4GB DDR4 RAM makes sure that multitasking is a possibility with this mid-range laptop.


This is one of the slight downsides of this otherwise great laptop.

The Acer Aspire comes with a 15.6-inch HD display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

The colours look a bit washed out from a distance but the brightness levels are OK.

We get the fact that Acer had to do some cost-cutting when it decided to include an eighth-generation Intel i5 processor inside.

However, the display looks fine for practical multimedia consumption and casual browsing.

It’s only if you are the one who craves for more details in the visuals, the average quality becomes evident.

Operating system

This Acer Aspire laptop comes with Linux on board.

Those who want to make the switch to Windows OS can make the switch effortlessly.

Acer provides all the necessary drivers for the Windows OS and the device is fully compatible with running it.

Battery life

The Acer Aspire laptop has a 38 Whr Li-ion battery inside that gives a battery life of about five hours.

The Eighth generation processor inside is pretty much energy efficient and the non HD display makes the device possible to last even more when used with minimum brightness.


If easy upgradability and the top of the line processor is your priority, then you should look no further.

Swapping the HDD for an ultra-fast SSD and increasing the RAM is only a screw removal away with this device.

If you’re quite a contempt with the non-full-HD display, we’d suggest you check out this one.

3. Asus Vivobook 15

Laptop with the Best Design
  • Suited for productivity on the go
  • Easy to carry around
  • Rich connectivity features

Asus is quickly catching up when it comes to the competition in the laptop market with the giants like HP and Dell.

Asus has been a star performer in many of our lists including the premium budget category to the entry-level laptops.

This time with the budget-oriented Vivobook S15, Asus has a strong contender in the sub Rs.35,000 price bracket.

Build Quality and Design

If you ask us to describe the build quality and design of this laptop in just one word, it would be this – gorgeous!

Yes, the Asus Vivobook S15 has the same chassis and the looks of its premium laptop cousins bearing the same Vivobook badge.

This thing looks dope and people would often mistake this beauty for a MacBook Air at a distance.

The plastic hard shell with metallic brushed design has been our favourite for some time now and the same is present in this laptop as well.

Everything feels great and the fit and finish of the product, in general, are great for the asking price.


Inside the stunningly stylish Asus Vivobook S15 is the latest AMD Ryzen 5 quad-core processor clocked at 2 GHz.

Higher clock rate equates to better performance in general but usually at the expense of battery life.

This device is ideal to be a travel laptop that can handle all the essential productivity tasks such as document editing on the go without any lags.

The 4GB DD4 RAM can be easily upgraded to double the amount that for better multitasking.
It has to be noted that this is a slightly faster 2400MHz RAM than the normal 2133 MHz ones found on most laptops in the price segment.

There is also the provision to swap the existing 1TB HDD for an SSD to make this laptop perform as great as any other premium laptop out there.

The AMD Vega 8 graphics which comes with the Ryzen processor has been tried and tested for its graphics handling performance and is found to be on par with the Intel integrated graphics solutions.


The Asus Vivobook S15 features a 15.6-inch widescreen full HD panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

This display is an anti-glare panel that will restrict the light from reflecting off the surface, thereby reducing the stress on your eyes while looking at it.

The visuals and text look sharp and clear and the colour reproduction is also decent.

However, the viewing angles are mediocre and you won’t be able to distinguish between the colours when looked at this display in slight angle change.


Asus is no miser when it comes to including connectivity options on their laptops. The

Asus Vivobook S15 comes with 2 USB 2.0 ports, a single USB 3.0 port and a new generation USB C port for faster data transfer speeds.

Remember that USB C ports are still finding its way to budget laptops of other brands when Asus has done it already.

Battery Life

The two cell Lithium-ion battery inside this laptop is generally good and provides battery life up to 6 hours on a single charge.

The 45W charger bundled with the package supports fast charging and will let you juice up the device pretty quickly.


The Asus Vivobook is one of the best looking laptops around Rs.35,000 price point.

It is compact and lightweight and is the perfect choice for travellers who would prefer taking their files with them and do some casual work on the fly.

Fast charging and the full HD display aids the laptop in being a perfect media consumption device.

4. HP Notebook 15

Best Budget Laptop
  • Powerful AMD Ryzen processor
  • Bundled MS Office 2016 license
  • Easy service centre accessibility

HP is one of the most accomplished electronic hardware manufacturer across the globe.

The HP Notebook 15 model specifically targets users who are in search of a device mainly for media consumption at large.

Design and Build Quality

The build as you’d have already guessed is plastic, yes. But the textured finish on the back with metallic HP logo is very much appealing to the eyes.

The robust hinge mechanism feels solid and ensures durability no matter how many times you open and close the lid.

There is no noticeable flex in the shell and the build feels durable.

The full-size island-style keyboard has a dedicated number pad on it. This will make it feel home for those who are used to desktop keyboards.

Processor and Performance

The HP Notebook 15 is one of the first laptops under Rs.30,000 in the country to rock an AMD Ryzen series mobile processor.

This laptop features an AMD Ryzen 3 2200U processor clocked at 2.5GHz.

With the 4GB of DDR4 RAM, it comes with, this laptop breaks no sweat while running the usual set of applications such as web browsers and office suites.

It also performs incredibly well when it comes to multitasking.

If you’re inclined to suck up more power out of this incredible mobile processor, we’d suggest you invest a few bucks on additional RAM module.

The AMD Radeon Vega 3 integrated graphics on this chip blows the Intel integrated GPUs in performance.

You can easily play light to medium games at low/medium settings comfortably on this laptop.

Storage-wise, this machine comes with a 1TB mechanical HDD on board to store your media files all in one place.


The screen on this machine is a 15.6″ HD widescreen anti-glare panel that provides vivid and punchier colours and sharper images with a decent level of detail.

This 1366 x 768-pixel resolution display has a maximum brightness up to 220 nits, which is quite OK for indoor use.

On top of the display, a 720p webcam is provided for making video calls.

The built-in dual speakers located on the underside of the laptop might get muffled when placed on a surface.


The HP 15 comes with 2 USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port as well as an SD card reader.

The DVD drive is one of the other important feature retained with this machine.

Today, DVD drives are becoming obsolete, getting replaced with portable storage devices such as USB drives or portable hard disks etc. Having an extra option doesn’t hurt and HP has rightfully given this option for the users.

Battery Life

All this is powered by a 4 cell Lithium-ion battery pack that the company claims will last up to 6-7 hours.

The fast charging technology from HP will let you charge this device up to 70% in under 40 minutes.


In conclusion, If you are looking for a perfect companion for your academic as well as causal uses, the HP Notebook 15 is a great choice.

Those who love consuming content on a bigger, better screen would love to have this laptop with them.

5. Dell Inspiron 15 3000

Honorable Mention
  • Bundled software suite
  • Excellent multitasking 
  • Decent battery life

Dell Inspiron laptops range from entry-level to premium budget segment, offering value for money specifications at an affordable price.

The Inspiron 15 3000 is an entry-level budget laptop which targets school and office-goers looking for a powerful yet affordable machine with high reliability.

Design and Build Quality

The Inspiron 15 5575 is practicality oriented budget laptop. To cut the costs down, Dell hasn’t done anything too impressive in the build quality department.

The entire construction of this laptop is of plastic. There is a bit of flex at certain points but it is to be expected with the asking price at which this laptop retails for.

The design is simple and minimalistic. We prefer this simple look over the sharp cuts and grooves on the chassis to make the laptop more aggressive.

Processor and Performance

The Dell Inspiron 15 3000 comes equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 2500U processor.

For starters, this is an entry-level processor that can easily complete all the basic tasks that a budget laptop should perform.

Web browsing and document editing are pretty much easy with this. Light multitasking is possible, thanks to the 4GB RAM that comes with this device out of the box.

There isn’t any dedicated GPU, but the dedicated AMD Radeon Vega 8 performs reasonably well when it comes to the handling of graphics.


This laptop comes with a 15.6-inch HD display which offers decent visual performance.

Since the display is large and the level of crispiness might not match a full HD screen, the Truelife display technology from Dell exhibits decent colour accuracy and brightness levels.


The hard drive size of this laptop is 1TB. This makes it suitable for storing all of your files offline – be it be movies or other document files.

Apart from that, Dell has partnered with Dropbox to provide free 20GB worth of cloud storage for every customer who buys a Dell computer.

If you have some files that you think should be on the cloud accessible anywhere and every time, this is a great choice.

This machine comes loaded with a genuine copy of Windows 10 Home and MS-Office 2016 which is highly beneficial for students for their academic purposes.

Battery Life

The Dell Inspiron 15 3000 lasts for about 4 hours of continuous usage on a single charge.

But again, this budget laptop is mainly meant for first-timers who will use this primarily at home or office with an option to always plug into a power source when needed.


The Dell Inspiron 15 3000 is a great entry-level device for beginners to try and test their familiarity with the laptop.

Loaded with Windows 10 Home, this is one of the low-cost alternatives to enjoy a full-sized desktop experience on a budget.

Buying Guide: Laptop under Rs.35,000

This buying guide will help you understand what to expect from a laptop under this budget and how to pick the best out of it.

To be honest, Rs.35,000 is the upper ceiling of entry-level laptops in India.

You can get good laptops for casual use, office work and school use at this budget.

But don’t expect laptops for gaming and heavy use at this price point.

 1. Processor

Intel’s 8th Gen processors are not yet launched in this budget.

The best you can get is 7th Gen Core i5 and Core i3 chipsets.

Some laptops come with AMD’s A9 APU’s which are pocket-friendly and pretty decent for casual use.

If you are a heavy user, we recommend the Intel Core i5 processors.

2. RAM and Storage

Nowadays, all laptops have 4GB RAM.

And that is all you need if you are just using your laptop for office work and casual use.

But if you’re a heavy user, go for a laptop having 8GB RAM or expandable RAM slot.

There are more important things you should consider instead of going after RAM.

Look for the cache memory available and the number of levels of cache (L1, L2, L3 cache memory hierarchy).

Remember that better the cache memory, faster the processing speed.

The only thing that additional RAM does is to allow your computer to do more things at once, not actually make it faster.

3. Graphics Card

A dedicated graphics card in this price range is very rare and those who have are very weak in performance.

Nvidia GeForce 920MX and AMD Radeon R5 are capable enough to only play few games in low settings.

4. Display

The display is something that is going to define your computing experience.

It is your window into computers and a bad display means bad experience.

Unfortunately, most of the manufacturers cut cost in display quality at this budget.

Majority of computers have a TN Panel which has poor viewing angles.

Make sure to look for a good display panel on your laptop.

5. Keyboard and Touchpad

These two are very important parts of a laptop but often overlooked by consumers and exploited by laptop manufacturers.

Good laptops have typing keys that are firm and comfortable to type.

Ideally, we suggest you find the laptop you really like online, visit your nearby laptop store, get a feel of the keyboard and touchpad, the speaker quality and display.

Then make up your mind, come back and buy it online at a lesser price. Voila!

6. Build Quality

Good quality of the keyboard and touchpad is often a sign of the overall quality of the laptop.

Don’t go by the looks.

See the finishing of the laptop. Go through the user reviews.

The build quality of a laptop is very important because that will determine how long it is going to last.

Most of the notebooks under Rs.35,000 are made of plastic body laptops, so go for those laptops that feel sturdy and have an impeccable finishing.

Some budget laptops even have metallic finishing over the plastic body.

7. Speakers

As I said earlier before you buy a laptop, go to your local store with a pen drive full of your favourite songs.

Play these songs on the machine you want to buy.

If that is not possible try to go through user ratings and reviews in popular e-Commerce sites like Amazon and Flipkart.

Also, visit the official site of the laptop manufacturer to get a better understanding of specifications.

8. Weight

This is particularly important if you want to carry around your laptop.

Go for lighter laptops under 2 Kilograms.

A lightweight laptop will be having a compact physical dimension so that you can easily slip it into a bag.

9. Battery Life

You don’t want to plug in your laptop to a power source all the time.

Don’t you?

So, Go for laptops that offer to claim better battery life.

Unfortunately, there aren’t many super efficient laptops under Rs.35,000 offering a long-lasting battery.

But still, if someone claims to give 7 hours battery life on a laptop, it is likely that the machine will last for at least 4 hours, which is better than the laptops claiming to give 4 or 5 hours of battery life.
