Here, we will be discussing the best budget Ultrabooks under NPR 100,000 in Nepal. 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 Ultrabooks that you can buy in Nepal under NPR 100,000.

Admittedly, you can find even cheaper Ultrabooks in the market. However, most of them are pretty underpowerful, 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.

Best budget Ultrabooks in Nepal:

Asus VivoBook 14 X413EA

Asus VivoBook 14 X413EA features a 14-inch anti-glare IPS panel. It is powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7, which is a quad-core processor. If you want more CPU cores, you should skip to the HP 14 that is next on this list.

However, because the i5-1135G7 has pretty impressive single-core performance, it should be more than enough for most people. This has been paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD.

Besides, this laptop has a 14″ FHD display with a respectable 250 nits of brightness and 45% NTSC color. In addition, Asus is the only brand in Nepal that offers two years of international warranty on its laptop. You also get a free backpack and an Asus mouse with every purchase of Asus VivoBook 14 X413EA.

The next entry in our list of best budget Ultrabooks under NPR 100,000 in Nepal is the HP 14. If you are looking for a powerfully compact laptop for school and college, this could be the one for you. 

As the moniker suggests, it comes with a 14-inch display. Weighing 1.47kg, this laptop is fairly portable even though it is comparatively heavier than the Asus VivoBook 14 X413 discussed earlier. And as you’d expect, its 14-inch chassis doesn’t have room for a dedicated Numpad.

As for ports, you get one USB Type-C, two USB Type-A, one multi-format SD card reader, one HDMI 1.4b, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The keyboard is backlit, so you won’t have any trouble using it in low-light conditions either.

Inside, you get a big 15.6-inch FHD display. Its brightness and color accuracy levels are in line with what we get in the price range.

Under the hood, the Inspiron 3501 is powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPU, which we found reliable enough under our tests. Our usage mostly consisted of opening 10-12 Chrome tabs, text editor, and Adobe Photoshop at the same time.

The MX330 GPU should also deliver smooth gameplay in titles like CS: GO and Valorant under low to medium settings. But if gaming’s not your priority, the Dell Inspiron 15 3501 is available without a discrete graphics card as well.

In our test, the 42Wh battery on this laptop provided 7 hours of screen-on-time on average which is quite impressive. Backing it up is a 45W AC adapter that takes around 3.5 hours to fully juice up the laptop from 0 to 100%.

Moving on, the IdeaPad 3 is powered by the latest Ryzen 5 5500U CPU. Though it is not based on the latest Zen 3 architecture, we found this processor to be quite capable for our daily usage, which mostly included online classes, casual web browsing, video streaming, and editing photos on Adobe Photoshop.
