Now that we are done with our list of the best laptops under 100000 (1 lakh) rupees in India in the year 2020, let’s move onto the buying guide/FAQ as promised.

Frequently Asked Questions


1) What are the factors I should consider when buying a laptop that’s worth around 1 Lakh?

Display – Display and Performance are the main things to consider if you are buying a laptop that’s worth almost 1 lakh rupees. You shouldn’t expect any compromises in this department if you are spending so much money. Doesn’t matter what you are going to do on your laptop (work, gaming and general entertainment), everything requires a good display and an equally good performance (never compromise on these).

At this price point, you should expect at least a Full HD [1920 x 1080 pixels of resolution] display. Anything less than that is massively overpriced. We also do recommend checking out the reviews of the said laptop on different shopping sites to take a guess on how the laptop’s display looks in real life. As for the screen size, it is purely preferential. Although we do prefer the 15-inch size as it provides a perfect combination of a good enough screen size and portability in our opinion (your mileage may vary, though, as always).

Best Gaming Laptops Under 1 Lakh
Don’t go for anything less than the 8th Generation Intel Core i5 processor.

Processor & RAM – In terms of performance, the processor and RAM are some of the most important specs. The graphics card too, but only for specific tasks like gaming and video editing. If you are getting a laptop for these tasks, we recommend getting a laptop that is intended to be primarily used for gaming aka. – a gaming laptop. For any other tasks, you can just go with the integrated graphics.

As for the CPU/processor, going for anything less than the 8th Generation Intel Core i5 processor is basically throwing money at the laptop’s manufacturer. Just keep in mind that it is common for laptops under 1 lakh rupees to have at least the 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor. And the RAM should be at least up to 8 GB, preferably 16 GB. It also best to get a laptop with additional RAM slots so that you can upgrade the RAM later.

Storage – As for storage, it depends on your needs although we do recommend getting one with at least 256 GB of storage if you want SSD storage or at least 1 TB if you are okay with HDD. If you don’t really know the difference between SSD (solid-state drives) and HDD (hard disk drives), there are two major differences that you may want to know. One is that an SSD performs much faster [at least 100 times faster] than a normal hard disk which helps in moving files at greater speeds and when the operating system is stored in there the whole system runs faster. Another benefit of an SSD is that the data stored in it rarely gets corrupted.


2) What are some other miscellaneous features that people tend to forget to look for?

We’ll list down and explain some of the miscellaneous features which people tend to forget that you might want to look for when buying a high- end laptop online in India. Most of these are purely preferential –

Backlit Keyboard â€“ The term ‘backlit keyboard’ is pretty self-explanatory. If you mostly tend to work late at night (which we do, it is 2 a.m. right now) with your lights off, you will absolutely need a backlit keyboard. Some of the cool features to look for in a backlit keyboard are colour and brightness adjusting.

Convertible Design – If you like using tablets with their stylus and stuff, you might want to get a laptop with an outward folding convertible design that comes with a pen in the box. If you buy such a laptop, just make sure it is light in weight as carrying around a bulky laptop like a tablet is going to ache your muscles.

Make sure your laptop has an HDMI port if you wish to connect it to your TV.

Speakers – This factor is optional if you tend to use devices like headphones and external speakers for your laptop. If you are going to mix music or edit videos on your laptop, we recommend getting external speakers as inbuilt speakers are not really of professional quality. But if not, just get a laptop with speakers with high power output and audio enhancing technologies like Dolby Audio.

Connectivity – Make sure the laptop that you are getting has the connectivity ports that you need. You don’t want to spend 100000 rupees on a laptop and then discover that it doesn’t have a USB-C port that you need for your work. Also, look for HDMI ports if you want to connect your laptop to a larger display (your TV, for example). If you are a photographer, you’ll need a laptop with a MicroSD card slot.

Other – Other additional features you might want to look for are a fingerprint sensor, a good quality front-facing camera with face unlock, some additional preloaded software, touchpad with multi-gesture support, touchscreen functionality, preloaded operating system of your choice, an anti-glare technology for display, thin bezels for better immersion, less weight, build material, battery capacity and warranty.
