Top 10 Budget Laptops
10) Acer Travelmate P645 (Business Laptop)
Price: Rs. 67,400/-
Recently launched Acer’s 14-inch Laptop, the Travelmate P645 is a solid performer. This is basically a well-built business machine which just weighs 1.52-kg. It is free from creaky joints, the all metal body with and metal hinges provides much strength to this business laptop. In recent times we have seen a much hinge cracking problem with most of the HP Pavilion laptops, in this scenario, the metal hinges could be considered safe. Travelmate has a working “Fingerprint reader” and onboard TPM module to encrypt all your sensitive date. The display quality is average in comparison, though it has nearly non-reflective screen which is good for reading text, but the multi-tasking ability is quite nice.
In real-world usage, the 3 cell battery of Travelmate P645 can last up to 7-8 hours. Travelmate isn’t equipped with a dedicated GPU, which makes it unfit for mid-range gaming even. It’s purely a business purpose laptop, in this budget the Travelmate P645 is worth considering when you are looking for an ultra-portable business device.

We would recommend it this for the good build, much improved keyboard and battery life. Other than that, this laptop has an outstanding sound quality. The video resolution of 1366 x768 pixels even in 15.6 inch screen version plus the poor typing experience over that spacious keyboard has prevented it to get even high ranking in our list. But for that one shortcoming, Inspiron 15 7000 will be remembered as most successful series from Dell.
