A good functioning computing device is always a great desire for every student and corporate alike. But for those who have a limited budget, they usually don’t have a variety of options. But in today’s marketplace, all that is changing gradually. At the present time, there are probably much more budget oriented options in consumer technology available than ever before. One such market to witness a major growth in the budget segment is that of laptops.
The lower- end segment of laptops has got a massive boost in recent years, as a result of which, every student or a corporate looking for a budget laptop has a plethora of options to choose from. And just in case if one gets confused, here’s a list of the best picks of Laptops under a budget of Rs. 30,000. All the laptops covered here have sort of similar specs, that is obviously because of the price range. Differentiating the models is hard, but still the subtle differences are mentioned.
Note that some of the laptops listed here do not come pre-installed with Windows OS. In such cases, if Windows is required, one would have to personally buy a version which might cost some extra money. It is also advised to not go for cracked versions of Windows just to save money, as not only those are illegal, but are also unsafe and might not provide enough protection from malware and could have some security issues.

It is available on Amazon at Rs. 28,490 without an installation of Windows.
#3 Dell Vostro 3458
The Dell Vostro 3458 is a laptop that ticks all the boxes, yet isn’t the best at any particular thing, or say, is a jack of all trades. Equipped with a 1.7 GHz 4th gen i3 processor, 4GB RAM and a dedicated entry- level Nvidia GT820M 2GB Graphic card. It sure is a great all- rounder. However, its 500GB HDD falls short somewhat compared to the 1TB options available from its competitors. It has a 14.1 inch display with a resolution of 1366×768, which is small compared to the other 15.6 inch laptops, but the size makes it much more portable to be used.

#4 HP BA 15-BA021AX
This laptop from HP is equipped with an AMD A10 3.3GHz 7th gen APU, it is the first laptop in this list which does not have an intel processor. And for those who don’t know, AMD produces APUs which are said to be a bit different from traditional CPUs. AMD’s APUs have the functions of a CPU and a GPU integrated into one single chip, which produces GPU performance much more better than the integrated intel graphics, but still stay inferior in the processing performance compared to intel.
However, the APU in this laptop, the 7th gen A10, is said to be better than an i3 in terms of both processing and graphics. To boost its GPU capabilities even further, it is equipped with a dedicated 2GB AMD Radeon R7 M440, and has 4GB of RAM(expandable upto 16GB) and 1TB HDD. This laptop can possibly be the best one suitable for gaming in this budget. The HP 15-BA021AX is available on flipkart without any pre-installed OS at INR 29,490.

Which should be enough for minor video editing and multimedia consumption.

Thee Acer Aspire R11 is for those who love to combine productivity with style. Its unique flexible design isn’t something just for a gimmick, it can be used very well if the user knows how to. Because of its touch screen display, it can be easily used both as a laptop and as a tablet. It’s a compact convertible laptop that can be used nearly anywhere because of its flexible form factor. It seems really amazing for its price. But then, is still built to a cost.
For having this great flexibility and form, this laptop has had to sacrifice some points in its spec sheet, which consists of an Intel 1.6GHz Quad Core Pentium N3710 processor, a fairly old one, but can still handle basic web browsing, office work and media viewing. Apart from that, it has an 11.6 inch display, which is the smallest display in this list, but the size is actually necessary for its form factor as well, the other specs include 4GB of RAM(expandable upto 8GB) and 500GB HDD.
