In this article, we’ve listed the best laptops under NPR 80000 you could buy in Nepal right now. Since the start of the lockdown, the demand for budget laptops has gone up. However, the market has not been able to meet the current demand. As a result, there are not a lot of laptops to choose from when compared to the situation before the pandemic.

Choosing a laptop under NPR 80000 (A mini-guide)

Basics aside, there are certain things that one should be looking out for when searching for the best laptops under NPR 80000 in Nepal. First, a display with Full HD resolution should be your top priority. Furthermore, performance-wise, you aim for at least the 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor (Ryzen 5500U is better, though), 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. Anyway, don’t keep your hopes high in terms of graphics. You are less likely to get discrete graphics in this range. So, that being said, let us dive into our pick for the best laptops under NPR 80000 in Nepal.

5Acer Swift 3 (2021)

Acer Swift 3 2021 Design

The first entry in this list of best laptops under NPR 80000 in Nepal is the 2021 edition of the Swift 3. You can say this has the best display of any laptop under this price range. Acer Swift 3 has an aluminum chassis with a thickness of 15.9mm. It weighs a little over a kilogram, so it’s portable enough to carry around in the backpack.

The other highlight of the Swift 3 is the display. It sports a 14-inch FHD+ LCD screen with an anti-glare layer on top. Here, you get 100% sRGB coverage as well as 300 nits of brightness—both of which are hard to get in this price range.

Moving on, the Swift 3 is powered by Ryzen 5500U, which should handle all day-to-day tasks with a breeze with the 8GBl RAM on board. There is no dedicated graphics, but light photo editing using Photoshop should not be a problem. And you also get a fingerprint scanner for biometrics.

Dell Inspiron 15 3525 2022

Next, we have the Dell Inspiron 15 3525. The Inspiron series is quite popular in Nepali households, especially among students. Thus, these laptops have a straightforward design and capable hardware as per the price range. In other words, the Dell Inspiron 15 3525 tries to balance capable hardware with a trendy design.

Talking about the specs, it sports a 15.6″ FHD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. The latter is a highlight since it’s uncommon for traditional laptops, let alone those under NPR 80,000, to support higher refresh rates. Moving on, this laptop is powered by Ryzen 5 5625U processor. There is no discrete GPU, so you will have to rely on the integrated Radeon graphics for any visual tasks. The laptop ships with 8GB of DDR4 RAM by default, but users can expand it later. You also get 512GB SSD for storage.

Asus Vivobook Go 14 2023 Color Options

The third entry on our list is the latest Vivobook Go 14. It is another traditional laptop for day-to-day tasks in this list. However, it comes with MIL-STD-810H certification, so it can take a bump or two. It is not just durable but stylish, too — with Asus offering three different color options.

The rest of the specs are pretty much what we expect from a laptop under Rs. 80,000 in Nepal. It has the Ryzen 5 7520U processor with integrated Radeon graphics. This is paired with 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of NVMe SSD storage. As its name suggests, the Vivobook Go 14 sports a 14-inch FHD IPS screen, so it’s also pretty portable.

2HP 250 G9 Notebook

HP 250 G9 Notebook

The second spot on this list of best laptops under NPR 70000 in Nepal is held by the HP 250 G9 Notebook. It is powered by the newer 12th Gen Intel Core i5-1235U processor. This chip brings a new hybrid core architecture with Efficiency (E) and Performance (P) cores. As a result, it performs substantially faster than Core i5-1135G7 we usually get in this segment—especially in multi-core tasks.

That said, the other aspect of the HP 250 G9 Notebook is pretty average. It sports a 15.6-inch FHD screen housed inside an all-plastic body. Since it is a 15.6-inch laptop, you get a full-size keyboard with a dedicated number pad. And yes, the keys are backlit. Since one of the two RAM slots is empty, you can use it to double the RAM from 8 to 16GB. Likewise, you also get a wide range of wired and wireless connectivity.

Finally, the best laptop under Rs. 80,000 in Nepal currently is the Acer Aspire 5 (2023). It packs the Intel Core i5-1335U based on the latest 13th Gen “Raptor Lake” architecture. It is a deca-core processor with 2 P-cores, 8 E-cores, and a turbo frequency of 4.6GHz. This is paired with 8GB and 512GB of SSD storage. Outside of it, it brings a plastic-metal hybrid design. The lid is made of aluminum, while the rest of the body is composed of plastic. In terms of connectivity, it has a Type-C port and Wi-FI 6, which are a great addition for an Rs. 80,000 laptop in Nepal. All in all, we believe the Aspire 5 (2022) is a great starter laptop for students on a budget.
