Best Budget Laptops Under Rs. 1 lakh in Nepal

Here, we will be discussing the best budget laptops under 1 lakh in Nepal (NPR 1,00,000). In today’s fast-paced world, everyone is working on the go. Having a device that you can easily carry around in your backpack can have a significant impact on your overall productivity. This has caused a surge in demand for Ultrabooks.

The growing popularity of Ultrabooks has prompted smartphone brands such as Huawei, Xiaomi, and Realme to chime in on this market as well. Such devices used to be pretty expensive (the premium ones still are), but there are a lot more affordable options today. Here, we have prepared this list of the best budget laptops that you can buy in Nepal for under 1 lakh.

Admittedly, you can find even cheaper Ultrabooks on the market. However, most of them are pretty underpowered, feature relatively slow storage, and have a sub-par display. So, to meet the needs and budget, people are also opting for a second hand laptops in Nepal. Anyways, as you move to the 1 lakh category, performance will not be much of an issue, but there will still be slight compromises in areas like build quality, display standard, and such.

Best budget Ultrabook Laptops under 1 lakh in Nepal 2024:

8HP Envy x360 (2023)

We are starting this list of best ultrabooks under NPR 1 lakh in Nepal with an HP Envy x360! HP’s Envy 14 from 2023 brings a compact 2-in-1 form factor to the segment powered by an Intel Core i5 chipset. The i5-1335U is a fairly capable processor with 10 cores (2P + 8E) and 12 threads. Complementing that, there’s your typical 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 512GB of SSD storage.

The display, though touch-compatible, is fairly standard with its FHD resolution, and 250 nits of brightness. Where it does let down is in the aspect ratio and color coverage department with the older 16:9 screen and 45% NTSC gamut. There’s a 43Wh battery, one USB-C port, and WiFi 6E support. Overall, a very decent deal, but if you’re willing to shell out a little more, the next 2-in1 entry on our list (at spot number 4) feels like a better choice.

7Dell Inspiron 3500 (2023)

Dell Inspiron 15 3530 Design and Display

From HP’s Envy, we move on to one of Dell’s laptops — the 2023 edition of Inspiron 3000. You can get this laptop in Intel as well as the AMD variant. The Intel-powered version comes with 13th Gen Intel Core i5-1335U and bears the 3530 moniker. Like the Inspiron 3535 packs AMD’s Ryzen 7530U.

Other than this, the two models are practically the same. You get a 15.6-inch FHD screen, 41Wh battery, and the same design and build quality.

6Asus Vivobook 14X (2023)

At spot number 6, we have our first Ryzen 7 class processor of the bunch in the Vivobook 14X from Asus. Vivobook 14X (2023) brings an 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7730U CPU with 8-core integrated Radeon graphics. Besides that, you get a very generous 24GB of RAM alongside a 512GB SSD. Given that, it’s not the fastest memory out there (DDR4-3200MHz for the RAM, and NVME Gen 3 for the SSD), we still appreciate the ample amount for the price point.

The display is a 14-inch FHD+ panel with a 16:10 aspect ratio, thin bezels, and 300 nits of brightness. The weight is also fairly manageable at around 1.6 kg and you get a decent keyboard, and trackpad combo with (digital) number pad. There’s also a fingerprint sensor alongside a physical privacy shutter for the webcam. These were some things to love about the Vivobook 14X.

There are some cost cuttings that you have to deal with though. Firstly, the screen only covers 66% of the sRGB gamut so it’s not the most accurate out there. Moreover, a 42Wh battery isn’t going to cut it powering a larger 15.6″ laptop for a long period of time. The WiFi support is stuck at WiFi 5 and you only get a single stream card (802.11ac 1×1) so other laptops in this list might feel faster when browsing the web and loading things. With all that being said, it’s still a good value for around 1 lakh rupees.

5Dell Vostro 15 3520 (2022)

Up next is a well-rounded Vostro with an i7 CPU and dedicated graphics. It may not have the best screen or the best build quality, but there’s plenty of horsepower to go around.

If you don’t really care about color accuracy or metal housing, the Vostro will impress you with its fluid 120Hz IPS and practicality. Vostro 15 3520 is built out of plastic and weighs 1600 grams. It features a 15.6″ Full HD screen powered by a 12th Gen Intel Core i7-1255U CPU. Despite being a notebook, it can even game a little, thanks to its GeForce MX550 card that should be roughly twice as fast as the integrated Iris Xe.

I/O options here include two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, one USB 2.0 Type-A, one 3.5mm headphone jack, and one HDMI 1.4 port. For wireless connectivity, you get WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.

4Lenovo Yoga 6 (2023)

Jumping back on the 2-in-1 train, we have the 2023 edition of the Lenovo Yoga 6 as one of our top picks for the best laptops under 1 lakh in Nepal. As opposed to the Envy, this guy sports an AMD chip – a fairly efficient Ryzen 5 7530U with 6 cores and 12 threads.

On top of that, you also get better colors at 100% sRGB, TUV Blue Light certification, and Dolby Vision support — all things that the Envy was missing. Moreover, Lenovo’s ‘Digital Pen’ is included with the purchase so you get additional usability as a tablet.

The rest of the things are pretty good too! You get a mostly aluminum build in a fairly portable package weighing less than 1.4 kilo and the endurance should be above average with its small screen and ~60Wh battery. You get two Type-C ports but both are limited to USB 3.2 Gen 1 speeds, two USB-As, an HDMI, a micro Card reader, and a 3.5mm jack. Besides that, you get fast dual-band WiFi 6 support alongside Bluetooth 5.1.

3Lenovo Thinkbook 13s Gen 4

Lenovo Thinkbook 13s Gen 4 (Ryzen 5 6600U)

A quick recap, the Lenovo Thinkbook 13s Gen 3 was already a liable choice and now its successor is even better. This is by far the best all-around laptop for non-gamers that you can get under NPR 1 lakh in Nepal. The main selling point of this laptop is its design and portability.

This laptop features an all-metal build, which sets it apart from the competition. In addition, it sports a 13.3-inch IPS screen with a modern 16:10 aspect ratio. The added vertical screen space allows programmers and officers to do more without scrolling. Also, the screen has 100% sRGB coverage, and the stereo speakers sound great, making it ideal for content consumption.

The laptop is powered by Ryzen 5 6600U, which boasts 6 physical cores and 12 logical threads. Despite the chip being not the latest, it is still capable of handling all the core tasks you would want in a laptop that costs less than NPR 1 lakh. The keyboard and trackpad are easy to use and don’t feel cheap as other laptops in this range do.

2HP Pavilion 14 Plus (2023)

The Pavilion 14 Plus gets almost everything right for 95,000 rupees. It feels premium, provides above-average performance, and features a crisp display. The only reason it’s not number one is because of the super tough competition in this price bracket.

HP Pavillion 14 Plus 2023

For starters, you get a high-res 2.2k IPS screen with full sRGB colors and a low-blue light filter. The processor is an Intel Core i5-1340P which is kind of a perfect choice for a CPU in an ultrabook. The 1340P is relatively powerful with its 4 performance cores but doesn’t exert as much on endurance as an ‘H’ series would. Besides that, you get a well-deserved 16GB of memory alongside 512GB for storage. Even connectivity is up there with more expensive ultrabooks with a Thunderbolt 4 alongside an additional Type-C. You even get the faster WiFi 6E and modern Bluetooth 5.3.

You can even save some cash by going with the 2022 model with a Core i5-1240P instead.

1Acer Swift Go 14 (2023)

Finally, the Acer Swift Go 14 is our top pick in this list of best laptops under 1 lakh in Nepal. If you’re looking for a thin and light laptop for everyday usage with a premium design, reliable performance, a gorgeous OLED display, and more, then there’s simply no option better than the Swift Go 14.

Thanks to Intel’s powerful Core i5-13500H CPU inside, everyday performance is incredibly smooth on this guy. There’s also 16GB of RAM onboard so multitasking isn’t going to be a trouble either. It also has a beautiful 90Hz OLED display with excellent color accuracy and brightness levels. And the best part is that the Acer Swift Go 14 is also super lightweight at just 1.25 kg, making it a great choice for students, programmers, graphic designers, and just casual users.

Moreover, if the tag is a bit pricey for you, you can instead opt for the non-OLED version with a Ryzen 5 processor for around 80,000 rupees.
