Acer Aspire 3 (A315-32)
Among the laptops we have tested in less than Rs 20,000. We found that Acer Aspire 3 (A315-32) gets better performance and best price. It is quite slim, which we liked. The plastic body has been made well, there is not much flexibility in the lid or keyboard area. The lid can lean to 180 degrees so you can work comfortably.
This is one of the few laptops in this segment. Which can be accessed via RAM and hard drives for easy upgrades. Laptops will get Windows 10 pre installs. As well as some work apps that help keep drivers and software up to date. The laptop is equipped with Intel Pentium Silver N5000 quad-core CPU. It have also 4GB RAM, 1 TB hard drive and Wi-Fi 802.11 AC.
In tests like file compression and video encoding. Aspire 3 (A315-32) took the least amount of time compared to the other laptops we had tested. Battery life is also good. Once you charge you will be able to do more work all day long.
Aspire 3 (A315-32) is not a perfect laptop and the reason behind this is that Acer gave so much specification in this price segment. But there was little agreement with the display and speakers. Viewing angle is also not the best and brightness could also be better. The stereo speakers are on the lower part and when the loud sound of these sounds. The sound does not look good.
This is one of the most heaviest laptops in our used laptops. Overall, if you want a bigger screen and the lower resolution is not a problem for you then Aspire 3 (A315-32) can prove to be a great option for you in 19,990 rupees.
iBall CompBook Netizen 4G
We have tested several laptops of iBall in the last few years, but CompBook Netizen 4G is a unique offering launched sometime ago, especially considering its price. This laptop comes with a 4G SIM slot, which allows you to stay connected to the internet all the time.
This feature can be useful for those who often travel and do not want to be disturbed by putting 4G dongles or tethering with phones. Battery life is quite good and on light workload we have done all the work on it all day long. CompBook Netizen has a full-HD display through. Which a 14-inch panel shows photos and text sharp.
Inbuilt storage is 64 GB which is better. CompBook Netizen is a compartment on the bottom of 4G from where you can install 2.5 inch SSD or hard drive. There are some things where it lags behind other competing devices, its CPU power and its build quality
This laptop used the Intel Celeron N3350 processor, which is quite old. Its single and multi-core performance is also not good, due to this, file compression and video encoding take much time. The plastic body does not look much stronger nor does it look premium. This laptop is getting in India for Rs 14,990. In this range, Asus provides better looking laptops.
