1. Lenovo Ideapad 330

best laptop under 30000 in india- IdeaPad 110

Summary
This Lenovo 330 is on top of our list not because we admire Lenovo as a laptop maker, but because this particular model is a great value for money. The new Ryzen series of processors from AMD are promising and the 2200U is no exception. Thanks to its 4 cores, it does better on many benchmarks compared to the 7100u. That’s not all though. The 330 also comes with Windows 10, 4GB RAM, and a full HD display which makes it one of the more attractive propositions under Rs 30,000.

The 7th generation Core i3 powered laptop features high on our list because it comes loaded with 4GB DDR4 RAM, Windows 10, and a full HD display.

Windows 10

Summary
Asus has loaded the Asus X541UA with features like the 7th gen i3 processor, 4GB RAM, 1TB hard disk and a full HD display for superior vieweing experience. And this 15.6 inch machine weighs under 2 kg. We only wish it came with Windows 10, but then it’s comparatively cheaper to machines that do come along with it.

HP 15-bu038TU

best laptops under 30000 - HP AC184TU/15-be005TU

Summary
While 4GB RAM is not bad, it’s definitely not enough. However, 8GB RAM is better to feed Chrome and other RAM hungry apps. The 15-bu038TU with 8GB RAM does that and is the only laptop in this budget to offer so. It doesn’t weigh too much either and has decent specs overall. However, we wish there was Windows 10 pre-installed.

HP 14q-cs0009TU

HP 14q-cs0009TU

Summary
A decent 14 incher that’s less than 1.5kg heavy. What’s there to like? Enough actually. While there’s no Windows 10, but the laptop has been priced accordingly, so fair to say it’s a fair value for money.

Lenovo Ideapad 130

best laptop under 30000 in india- IdeaPad 110

Summary
While we won’t call this a gaming laptop, this one has the best graphics card under 30k. The MX110 won’t run your latest games, but might just run some non demanding titles. There’s also Windows 10 which is nice. The sixth gen i3 is a bit of a disappointment though.

    Intel Core i3 6006u (6th gen)
  • GPU
    Nvidia 110MX 2GB
  • Display
    15.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixels

Asus X540UA-GQ284T

Asus Vivobook K510UQ-BQ667T

Summary
Okay, here’s what we like about this laptop primarily. The fact that it comes with 6GB RAM, which is better than 4, and Windows 10, which is better than DOS. The sixth generation processor doesn’t compare to 7th gen, but I think that’s a fair compromise, given the other specs.

Our recommendation on choosing the best laptops under Rs 30,000:

Rs 30,000 will buy you a decent laptop that can be used for daily use including surfing, watching movies, office work and a slight bit of gaming. The best CPU in the budget is the 7th gen Core i3, unless something with a Core i5 is available.

While 4GB RAM wouldn’t cause any troubles, 8GB is obviously recommended. More, if you happen to have a lot of tabs open, or tend to multitask a lot on your laptop. Most likely you’ll have to choose between Windows 10 or 8GB RAM in the budget, but remember RAM can be upgraded anytime in the future without voiding the warranty.

All of these graphics cards with 2GB card should be adequate for architecture and design students. You might be able to run older games too on low settings. AMD machines tend to offer better graphic cards, but the Core i3 is a better CPU. It’s a trade-off where you have to choose one.

Depending on your requirements, we’ve made a list below that details the best options across varied priorities (click against the name to jump to detailed specs above):

Based on your priorities, you can decide what is ultimately the best laptop under 30k for you. Happy shopping
