Buying a laptop nowadays can be a tedious task. Especially with all the options available. One has the option to go for an ultra-book, a gaming laptop, convertible, and many more. This huge array of alternatives is enough to send anyone on a frenzy. However, no matter the type of device, one thing that will certainly affect your decision is your budget. After all, at the end of the day, it all boils down to the finance of things. There are multiple price segments when it comes to buying anything, and it is the same with laptops too. Still, you’d want to get the best option in your preferred price segment. And this article will guide you in that quest. Well, the best laptops under 80000 in Nepal to be specific.
Basics aside, there are certain things that one should probably look for while buying a laptop under Rs. 80000. Firstly, a display with Full HD resolution should be on your priority list. Furthermore, processor-wise, you should be able to get the 8th or 9th gen Intel Core i5 U processor. However, don’t keep your hopes high in terms of graphics. Anything above dedicated Intel UHD graphics will be a bonus. As for storage, if you prefer to have more than 10 tabs open in Google Chrome, you should opt for a laptop with SSD storage. So, with that being said, let us dive into our list of the best laptops below Rs. 80,000. Oh and one more thing, the list is arranged in descending order, i.e. the last one on this list is our top pick.
Asus ZenBook 13
Starting off our list is the Asus ZenBook 13. It is a light-weight laptop that weighs around 1.1 kilograms and measures just over half an inch in thickness. However, don’t let its thin stature fool you. It is equipped with the quad-core Intel Core i5-8250U processor that can clock up to 3.40GHz. Moreover, it also boasts an all-day battery life. That’s more than you can ask for when it comes to using a laptop for daily computing. However, on the downside, it is equipped with an integrated Intel 620 UHD Graphics only. This might still support light photo edit and even some casual gaming, but don’t expect this device to work well while doing graphics-intensive jobs.
Following up the Asus ZenBook 13 is the HP Envy-13 equipped with 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor. This one ranks better in our list, simply on the virtue of pricing. Other than the prices, the HP Envy-13 and Asus ZenBook 13 offer virtually the same specs. And if you decide to get this one over the ZenBook, you’d be saving around Rs.2000 bucks. Now, I know that’s not much, but hey if you save even a little bit that’s a bonus right.
Design-wise too, the HP Envy-13 gives its competitors a tough competition, and that envious HP logo on the lid can even put MacBooks logo to shame. Furthermore, the key spacing on the keyboard is good and its 1.2mm key travel is appreciable. However, with that being said, this laptop too might fail you while doing graphic-intensive tasks.
