Stylish Mini Laptop Asus VivoBook E200HA

Even a beginner can defeat an expert sometimes. Gets that proved here with this VivoBook mini laptop. Asus is a top vendor, manufactures laptop for IT giants like HP and Dell, yet it failed on its own product to a mediocre Indian brand iBall.

The VivoBook E200HA is slow in processing despite having the latest hardware and software. And the reason is, preloaded applications of this mini laptop that by default takes a big chunk of processor power to remain active in the background.

The built-in speaker of this mini Windows 10 laptop produces loud and clear sound. For the efficient power management onboard, it is a device well-recommended. Yes, its inbuilt 2-cell battery setup has the official backup time 38Whrs. In daily use, the battery backup translates into eight to nine hours of ideal usages.

Performance: In order to add more features, Asus has practically slowed this machine. In fact, the end user experience with this laptop is not that profound. Yet, this is a machine you should shortlist. Reason? It is lightweight and looks very stylish and premium as well. Its golden design and sharp finish across the sides and corners wins user’s heart.

Besides, Asus offers 500GB free web storage. Thus, its only 32GB internal storage would not be that issue. Even though the heavily optimized CPU is a bit slow but is free from heating and noise issue. This is possible because of Asus’s high standard state-of-art manufacturing processes.

iBall Exemplaire CompBook Mini Laptop with HD Display

For some users, the 11.6-inch screen may not be enough. So, in the price of CompBook i360, iBall has launched a laptop. Yes, I am talking about popular iBall Exemplaire CompBook, a 14-inch laptop. However, my experience with it says it is still a tablet from inside.

To keep it competitive in the market, iBall has compromised on the quality of hardware used. Even though the hardware on this laptop is branded but outdated. For instance, the Intel processor is not in its latest variant, therefore, is slow with Windows 10 operating system. Thus, users experience with this iBall 14-inch laptop may not be that exacting. Still, this is a laptop fine for daily computer works.

Have no confusion this laptop is as efficient as any advanced 30000 Rupees from HP or Dell. It is cheap because of the cheap hardware it consists of. Nevertheless, it can run all applications if required free resources are available. I mean this is just a regular laptop with basic hardware. Read also Best Compact Laptops for Your Convenience.

Practical sense says a brand can reduce the price of a gadget to a certain extent only. In fact, in order to keep the price low, lots of quality compromise also has to be made. The same practical sense prevails here, too. This Micromax laptop has got mixed response from users in terms of build quality and features. A number of issues have been reported about it.

Excellent Budget Laptop Dell Inspiron 11-3162

This Dell model has completed 7 months of its launch in the Indian market. During this period, it has been sold like hot cake, earned great appreciation from users. Dell has developed many performance enhancement technologies. On this laptop, Dell offers some of them for better end users experience.

Remember, you cannot install VLC player on Dell laptops. If you do, your laptop would not be eligible for one-year free service. In fact, this is the reason why I keep a safe distance from laptops with Dell logo. Besides, I am not a big fan of the build quality of Dell products. They lack essential qualities for a long lasting durability.

The CPU unit of this budget laptop is made with 2GB RAM, intergraded Intel HD Graphics, and Intel Celeron N3060 processor, which has a clock speed of 2.4 GHz. Internal storage is 32GB, but that is not a limit. In fact, users could make use of the secure digital card slot for expansion of onboard total storage. In addition, it supports external hard disk, too. With the 2-cell battery, around eight to ten hours of backup is possible against ideal usages of this laptop.

Other Key features of Dell Inspiron Mini Laptop

Talking about the build quality, I have to agree Dell has done fantastic work despite this laptop being a low-cost product. Just 1.2 Kgs of weight tells the story that this is a portable, light in weight machine. But its look is offbeat, in fact, not that exciting. Looks wise the Asus mini laptop is the best choice from these five under 15000 Rupees.

While speakers of the laptops discussed so far were just so-so, I must say Dell wins this challenge with the use of Waves MaxxAudio Pro speakers. But here is a catch: you cannot use VLC player on this Dell Laptop whereas other laptops would allow the same.

Even on the front of connectivity options, this Dell laptop is superior. And, the best thing about the connectivity options is having both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port onboard. Thus, it is compatible with most of the USB powered gadgets.

For the price of 12750 Rupees, this is a marvelous product. It has all the necessary features. In fact, it is a complete laptop and much superior than what other brands have to offer. It is also light in weight laptop. On the front of the design, however, GS team gives it less mark but that is OK! Since this laptop is rather limited to basic computer works. I must agree to the fact that Dell’s this laptop is a value for money product and it has more than expected features and specs at such a low price.
