Best laptops of 2018 in Nepal (in every price segment)

best laptops nepal every price segment

You probably already read our list of the best laptops of 2018. While that’s great and all when you have the choice among all laptops in existence, not the same case in our country. The price and availability are two of the very main factors that might pivot one’s buying decision in Nepal.

Keeping that in mind, we have categorized laptops into nine categories and made sure all of them are available in Nepal. We will be referring to laptops from the grey market for a few obvious reasons. For the same, we can vouch for the laptops, but not the sellers or the after-sales service.

Best laptop under Rs 25,000

It’s just hard to recommend a laptop at this price, seeing you can barely buy a decent smartphone for the money. However, if your laptop needs are outright basic, the iLife Zed Air might just do. It should handle tasks like watching Youtube videos, movies or just checking your emails.

The best part about this laptop is its display, a 14″ FHD panel at this price is just excellent. No, it’s not an IPS panel and color or the viewing angles might just terrify most, but the resolution should just seal the deal for most. What’s not great is the 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

Forget Chrome, you don’t expect anything other than that Windows Edge. The Intel Atom Cheery Trial Z8350 should be able to handle the minimum. Don’t be fooled by its four cores, it has an SDP of just 2W, which doesn’t boost a lot of confidence. The battery life should be decent though.

It gets a webcam, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0. Connectivity wise, there are 3 USB ports, one mini HDMI and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It’s a pretty thin and light-weight laptop priced at Rs Rs 24,900.

Best Laptop under Rs 45,000

At this price range, you can expect something with an Intel’s Core i3 processor. That is exactly what the Lenovo Ideapad 320 features, a 6th Gen Core i3 processor. It gets a 14″ HD display with integrated graphics, 4GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.

Specs aside, this laptop should be enough for most people who just want a decent performing laptop. It won’t be as slow or as laggy as the Zed Air and should complete most tasks without any hiccups. The large storage is a bonus for all your storage needs be it movies, music or documents.

The laptop’s display might be an eyesore for most people but do remember the other features this laptop offers. Battery life might hover below 5 hours but that’s nor here nor there. You can find the laptop in online stores like Daraz for Rs 44,000.

Best Laptop under 1 Lakh

For the best laptop under 1 lakh, we will be recommending two laptops. The first is for all the gamers who want a heavy machine without compromising on thermals or performance. The second laptop is an ultrabook, it’s great built quality, portabiloity and other ultrabook traits.

Dell G3 nepal

The first in this list is the new Dell G3 gaming laptop. Priced a little over 1 lakh it’s one of the best gaming laptops you can buy at this price. The Intel Core i5-8300H is a quad-core processor, beating the likes of even the i7-7700HQ. It gets 8GB of 2666 DDR4 memory and 1TB of hard drive, with support for an SSD.

As for GPU, we basically cannot expect one better than the Nvidia GTX 1050Ti. It is an excellent GPU, and you should be able to play any games, just don’t forget to crank down the graphics quality. The 15.6″ FHD display is, what most would define usable, hanging over a plastic body that weighs a total of 2.53KGs.

We get that not all of you who wanted a laptop under 1 lakh is even considering buying the Dell G3. For those of you, the Dell Inspiron 5379 should be perfect. It’s a lot portable than the G3, it’s also pretty well built and it can move in directions the G3 could only imagine.

Best Laptop under Rs 1.3 lakhs

There are a bunch of laptops that fall under this category and we have, again chosen the best ones for you. Let’s mix things up and start with an ultrabook, the Dell XPS 13 9370, personally my favorite laptop in its category. The laptop is priced at 1,26,800 and comes with all the features one could expect from an ultrabook.

The laptop gets an excellent bezel-less 13.3″ IPS display with Intel Core i5-8250U processor. Paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of M.2 PCIe SSD, it leaves nothing to complain about. It gets the Killer 1435 802.11ac Wi-Fi, great set of connectivity, a huge 52Wh battery packed under an impressive 1.2Kgs.

The second laptop is the Acer Predator Helios 300, with a 7th Gen i7-7700HQ processor, and a GTX 1060 GPU inside. It most probably is the cheapest laptop with a 1060 GPU inside. If you want one for gaming or any other graphics intensive tasks, this one is it.

It’s also no slouch in other aspects. It’s a 15.6″ FHD IPS display, 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 256GB M.2 SSD along with HDD support. This is basically one of the best “bang for the buck” laptop in this price as long as gaming is concerned. You can still buy one for a little over Rs 130,000.

The biggest compelling feature is the 144Hz display, paired with a nice set of internals.

The first is a 15.6″ FHD 120Hz display with G-Sync enabled. It does only come fitted with a last-gen Core i7-7700HQ processor, but it’s none the less a capable processor.

Finally, for an ultrabook, there is no other laptop worthy of being in this list other than the Dell XPS 15.

Conclusion

All of these laptops were available at their respective buy now links at the time of writing. However, these sellers are pretty unreliable and they might go out of stock.
