1. Asus Vivobook Celeron 15.6 inch Laptop

Image of Asus Vivobook Celeron 15.6 inch Laptop which is one of the best laptops under 20000

From the Vivobook series of Asus, we bring the Vivobook Celeron Dual. Asus is known to make pretty good laptops and this is another example of the same. Let’s get the specs out of the way first.

The CPU that the Vivobook runs on is a. 8th gen Dual-core Celeron processor that’s clocked at 1.1GHz and can go up to 2.6GHz at boost with integrated graphics UHD 600. There is 4GB LPDDR4 to handle multitasking and there is 500GB of Internal storage for storing things. The performance should be good as the hardware running the show is pretty decent. The OS is Windows 10 Home and it will run just fine given the hardware in the laptop.

The screen size is what truly makes this laptop nice and compact. At 15.6 inches and a resolution of 1366x768 pixels, we actually have a great screen especially because of its compact. The picture quality of the panel should be good. The screen folds back all the way to 180degrees to fit accordingly to the user's needs.

As for ports, we have a great option out here. To the left of the laptop, we have the power port, Micro SD card slot, 1 HDMI port, one of the 2 types A USB 3.0 ports, 1 type C USB 3.0 port. To the right, we have the second type A USB port and the headphone jack.

The best or worst part about the laptop depending on the user is this that it does not have an optical disk drive thus the form factor does not only become small but also light. On the battery front, Asus promises a battery life of 6 hours but we expect the real-world usage to be somewhere around 4 to 5 hours. The keyboard is chicklet style and at under 20k price is not going to win the keyboard of the year award. However, is definitely going to be completely usable. Finally, a VGA webcam sits to the top of the display for occasional video calls.

All in all, for a price of under 20000 this is a good laptop if your planning on doing lightweight tasks.

This laptop is from the most famous lineup of budget laptops. Lenovo’s Ideapad lineup that is. The Ideapad 330 is one of the best laptops you can get in this range. Let's see what all it offers.

The 330 gets a dual-core A6 processor from AMD which is clocked at 2.6 GHz and can go all the way up to 3.0 GHz. We also get a 4GB DDR4 dual channel RAM clocked at 2400 MHz and 500Gb of internal storage to work with. Performance for the Ideapad 330 is simply going to be amazing considering that it’s an under the 20k laptop. Day to day task like browsing the internet or using MS office should not be a problem. The Ideapad 330 also happens to have the best keyboard in the list and is very responsive and provides good feedback.

The Ideapad 330 laptop runs on Windows 10 Home operating system and the hardware that the laptop has complements the software just fine.

The Ideapad 330 again has the best choice of port. There's a power port, an ethernet port, an HDMI port, 2 USB 3.0 ports, a headphone jack, a USB 3.0 type C port, and an SD card slot is there as well. The best part all of the ports are placed on the left so that its more organized when and if you use all of them at the same time.  The speaker system on the 330 is again a charm, though down firing we get dual 1.5W speakers powered by Dolby.

The display at 14-inch hits the right spot between being compact and being a large display. The display itself runs at a resolution of 1366x768 and is actually a decent panel.

Unlike other companies, The Ideapad 330 doesn’t make bold claims with battery life. They say 5 hours and on testing, it is actually very close. Finally, the webcam on the 330 is probably the best out of the bunch on our list. At a 720p resolution, it is definitely above average and will get the job more than done

All in all, the Ideapad 330 is definitely one of the best options on our list of best laptops under 20000 in India and is great for everyday basic use.

This is a laptop from HP G series and it offers great value for money. The laptop is well built and comes with decent internal hardware. To begin with, we have AMD’s Dual-core A6 processor handling the show which is clocked at 2.6GHz and can boost up to 3GHz. With this CPU you get to work with 4GB DDR3L RAM. Now, where this laptop and a few upcoming mentions truly shine are in the internal storage. where some competition offers 500GB of it, the 15q offers 1TB of internal storage. This basically is one powerhouse of a laptop when it comes to performance and you will definitely be satisfied with it.

On the software side, there is DOS installed so you need to install Windows 10 or Linux yourself which is the only negative point of this laptop.

The ports selection on the laptop again is very unique. You have the power port, Ethernet port, HDMI port, 2 USB 3.0 port and a headphone jack to the left of the laptop. While the full-sized SD card a USB 2.0 port and the optical disk drive sits to the right for the laptop. The HP laptop is the only option on the list that an optical disk drive and we think it is awesome. Yes, we know some of you will be like thinking like this is 2019 who uses that drive? Well, when you are paying less than 20K and don’t compromise on the battery life either by getting around 5 hours of battery life has an extra feature doesn’t hurt. Right?

The 245 G7 from HP is a laptop for those who are looking for something inexpensive and lightweight that can perform day to day tasks like MS office and web browsing without much problem.

The 245 G7 comes with a 14-inch HD display and a resolution of 1366x768 pixels. The panel comes with an anti-glare coating which reduces any background light. The display and color saturations are decent for the budget. The screen also gets a peek brightness of 220 nits and is on par with most of the competitors out there.

The 245 G7 is powered by AMD Ryzen R3. This is a dual-core processor that is clocked at 2.5Ghz base and 3.4Ghz boost. This is coupled to a 4GB dual-channel RAM which is further upgradable to 8GB. The internal storage comes in at 1TB.

Although you can only play light games on this laptop, it is good to see that the Radeon Vega 3 graphics that come inbuilt, has graphical performance that is very close to an MX110 from NVIDIA graphics card. Overall specifications are one of the best for laptops under 25000.  However, do remember that this is not a gaming laptop. The performance with this laptop is exactly on par with what is to be expected of a laptop of this price range.

The ports on the laptop are pretty decent too with a USB 2.0 port and full-sized SD card to the left of the laptop and the power port, HDMI port, 2 USB 3.0 ports and a headphone jack to the right of the laptop.
