Tecno Ad

Here, we will be discussing the best budget laptops under 1 lakh in Nepal (Rs. 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 the list of the best budget laptops that you can buy in Nepal for under 1 lakh.

Admittedly, you can find even cheaper Ultrabooks in the market. However, most of them are pretty underpowered, feature relatively slow HDD storage, and have a sub-par display. As you move to the 1 lakh category, performance will not be much of an issue, but there will still be compromises in areas like build quality, display standard, and such.
