Best laptops under Rs. 80000 in Nepal 2022

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.

4Acer Extensa 15 (2021)

Acer Extensa 15 2021

The first entry in this list of best is the 2021 edition of the Acer Extensa 15. Extensa is a lineup known for affordable business laptops for small enterprises. Thus, these laptops have a straightforward design, usually an all-black finish like the one on the models available in Nepal. In other words, the Acer Extensa is more about the capable hardware and useful features it packs than the looks its sports.

Talking about the specs, it packs the 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7. There is no discrete graphics, so you will have to rely on the integrated Iris Xe for any visual tasks. The laptop ships with 8GB of DDR4 RAM by default, but users can expand it to 16GB. You also get dual-drive storage with 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD right out of the box.

Acer Extensa has a big 15.6-inch IPS LCD screen with FHD+ resolution. It is also compatible with Acer’s ComfyView technology for comfortable viewing. On the downside, this laptop misses out on Wi-Fi 6 and Type-C connectivity. The 36.7Wh cell is also not the biggest on this list.

3Lenovo IdeaPad 3 (2021)

Next, we have Lenovo IdeaPad 3 from last year. This laptop was initially launched for some Rs. 85,000 in Nepal, but a year later the price is already down to Rs. 80,000. For this price, IdeaPad 3 (2021) is still a solid option if you are looking for an all-around device.

It is powered by Ryzen 5500U, which should handle all day-to-day tasks with a breeze with the 8GB dual-channel RAM on board. One of the RAM is soldered, while you can replace the other with an 8GB stick for a total of 12GB RAM. There is no dedicated graphics, but light photo editing using Photoshop should not be a problem.

It doesn’t have the premium look, but the build quality is quite good. Moving on, you also get a full-size backlit keyboard with a dedicated number pad and a power button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner. There is not much to complain about battery and connectivity.

However, try to get the variant with an LCD screen whenever possible, as viewing angles on the TN panel is not excellent.

2Dell Inspiron 3511

The third entry on our list is the Dell Inspiron 3511. It is another traditional laptop for day-to-day tasks in this list. However, it comes with dedicated graphics, which other laptops in this list lack. The GPU in question is the GeForce M350 from NVIDIA. It is an entry-level GPU, and don’t expect to go full-on gaming with it. However, it should perform better than the integrated graphics on other laptops with 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 RAM.

 

The rest of the specs are pretty much what we expect from a laptop under Rs. 80,000 in Nepal. It has the 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and 512GB of NVMe SSD. The plastic lid opens to a 15.6-inch LED backlight panel with FHD resolution and an anti-glare layer.

Finally, the best laptop under Rs. 80,000 in Nepal currently is the Acer Aspire 5 (2022). It is the cheapest laptop with the latest 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, the Core i5-1235U performs substantially faster than the Core i5-1135G7 we get in this segment. In addition, the Aspire 5 (2022) brings Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, which are both hard to get in similarly-priced laptops.

On the other hand, the 14” display on the Aspire 5 looks rather dull, and the build quality is questionable at part despite having an aluminum lid.
