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, an IPS display with Full HD resolution should be your top priority. Furthermore, performance-wise, you aim for at least the 12th Gen Intel Core i5 processor or Ryzen 5 CPU, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. The market is full of 12th/13th Gen Intel and Ryzen 5000/6000/7000 CPUs, but newer doesn’t always mean better in this regard. Anyway, don’t keep your hopes high in terms of graphics. You are less likely to get discrete graphics in this range but we have a few options that meet that criteria this time around. So, that being said, let us dive into our pick for the best laptops under NPR 80000 in Nepal.

Asus Vivobook Go 14 2023 Color Options

We are starting this list of best budget laptops under Rs. 80,000 with the latest Vivobook Go 14. It is a 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.

Not just a regular OLED, the display supports 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, 600 nits of HDR peak brightness, Pantone Validated, SGS eye care protection, and such. A paradise for content-watching in a nutshell!

Powering it from the core is a 12th-generation Core i3-1220P CPU with 10-core architecture and 4.4GHz boost clock speed. Despite being an “i3”, the P moniker denotes some good everyday performance.

5Dell Vostro 15 3520 (2022)

Dell Vostro 15 3520 (2022)

Next up, we have the Dell Vostro 15 3520 (2022). This laptop is currently up for sale for just Rs. 80,000. It is powered by 12th Gen Intel Core i5-1235U CPU, which is paired with 8GB LPDDR4 RAM and 512GB SSD. The key USP here is the MX550 graphics with 2GB VRAM which is enough for your basic Photoshop needs and light gaming – although the former might be less than ideal because of the 45% NTSC gamut. That said, you can expect much better build quality from Dell.

In terms of display, you get a 15.6-inch FHD display with a narrow border and anti-glare coating. While for the I/O, there are two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C ports, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, one USB 2.0 port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a HDMI 1.4 port.

4HP Pavillion 15 (2022 /2023)

If you want just as good performance for a slightly better build, you can instead opt for HP’s Pavillion 15 model. Both 2022 and 2023 variants offer the same core experience with good metal/plastic hybrid builds, large FHD screens, and decent endurance with their 41Wh batteries.

You can make the choice between a faster Core i5-1335U CPU with Integrated Iris Xe graphics or a 12th Gen i5-1235U but with a dedicated MX 550 GPU. There’s also a third option with the i5-1240P chipset which will have better full-load CPU performance due to its higher number of P cores. For most folks, we would suggest the second option as the performance difference between the processors isn’t as pronounced while the dedicated graphics might come in handy more than once. That being said, there might be folks out there who would benefit more from the 10-15% CPU boost so having options is always a good thing.
