Even the most entry-level laptop is much more powerful than a standard netbook. Unlike netbooks, laptops are more comfy to work on, te terms of ergonomics. Laptops are better at treating requiring applications like designing suites, multimedia, movie playback and such. But netbooks tend to become sluggish even with numerous tabs during powerful Internet browsing, let alone multitasking and powerful applications.

You&rsquo,ll notice that none of thesis laptops feature Intel&rsquo,s fresh Core series of processors, such spil the entry-level Intel Core i3 variants. If you spend a duo of thousands more than 30K, there are a few Core i3 laptops available across brands, but let&rsquo,s leave that for another postbode when wij choose a slightly higher budget. Te the mean while, let us know which one of thesis suits you best.

Each brand is known for some special trait, for example, Lenovo laptops are popular amongst business personnel, they are rugged, and ordinary to look at. Samsung laptops are stylish and Acer Aspire laptops are known for the value for money they suggest. Sony, with their fresh Vaio E-series of laptops have come into the Rs 35,000 price range , but I guess that it&rsquo,s going to be a while before their laptops come under the 30K bracket. Nonetheless it&rsquo,s a superb commence.

Solely considering the hardware and the overall package of all thesis laptops, wij&rsquo,d say that the Aspire Aspire 4736z is the best pick at Rs 29,500. Wij would have chosen the Samsung R528 overheen this one because of its better processor. But the Acer Aspire 4736z ships preloaded with the latest Windows operating system, while the others are still suggesting either Windows Vista or Free DOS.

On that note, wij&rsquo,d like to know spil to how many of you choose to buy a laptop without a paid OS. The pre-loaded licensed Windows on laptops adds to the cost of the machine, which means if you already have a licensed Windows copy, then you can buy a laptop either with Linux or Free-DOS. For example, our best pick, the Aspire 4736z, is also available with Linux, and is priced at merely Rs 25,750.

Quick Note: All the prices listed above are approximate.
