Gone are the days when fancy tech gadgets were just for people who had the very big bucks to spend. These days, you can almost always find something that will agree with your pocket. If you are thus looking for a bargain, we have researched and provided some of the cheap laptops under #100k that you can buy. Not just cheap options, but quality enough for the prices they come at.
Note that we have made sure to choose only new versions of these units. While you may be better off with a second-hand unit of a bigger laptop you’d love to have, it is always much safer to get it brand new.
For those who would want to own a laptop within their budget, let’s look at the top picks
1 Lenovo IdeaPad 110S-11IBR
When it comes to a simple, elegant, performance-oriented yet, affordable laptop, the Lenovo IdeaPad 110S-11IBR knows how to juggle. The lightweight unit stands at just 11.6 inches, delivers images and other visual content at very good quality rates and is a product of some solid engineering.
The unit is powered by an Intel Celeron N3060 processor carrying dual cores. Under the hood is also an integrated Intel HD Graphics card wrapped around the 2GB of RAM. We agree that a 32GB of internal storage space might be small, but you can expand it with an external hard drive as you see fit.
Going on, the laptop comes with the new Windows 10 software out of the box, an HDMI port, two USB ports and Bluetooth + WIFI connectivity options.
To cap it all off, the device is available to you in colour options or red, blue, silver and white
2 HP 255 E2-9000e
HP will always be that brand that knows how to treat every market – starting from the high end to the entry level – just right. On the HP 255 E2-9000e, one will find an amazing 4GB of RAM paired with an internal storage space of 500GB.
That will be bettered by the use of an AMD Quad-Core chipset which can reach a maximum clock speed of 2.16GHz. If those alone do not still impress you, wait till you hear that the 15.6 inches unit comes with an impressive 4-cell Li-ion battery, carries an Intel HD Graphics card and ships with Windows 10 software.
3 Dell Inspiron 15 Laptop
The Dell Inspiron 15 is nearly internally identical with the HP laptop above. However, Dell has opted for an Intel Celeron chipset instead, even though they made use of the same 4GB RAM + 500GB ROM specification.
The display size of the laptop is as evident from the name, stopping the metre wire at 15.6 inches. The CPU, which is built on the Windows 10 operating system, is promised to reach up to 2.16GHz of speed.
Depending on where you are getting yours from, you should also be getting a 1-year warranty package with the laptop too
4 Acer Aspire ES1
Acer is one of the manufacturers with a penchant for offering high-end technology to midlevel users at affordable prices. They have pronounced that commitment with the Acer Aspire ES1 which promises at least 2GB of RAM to go with a 500GB hard disk space.
The processing unit under the hood is confirmed to be a Quad Core Intel Celeron chipset. Other interesting features include USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, HDMI port, a strong battery (3-cell 3500mAh Li-ion) and the Windows 10 operating system.
5 Lenovo IdeaPad 100
Making the list for the second time is Lenovo, and this time, they do so with their IdeaPad 100. This is the unit that makes specs such as 2GB of RAM, an internal memory of 500GB, a 15.6 HD display powered by the Intel HD Graphics card and a 4-cell Li-ion battery affordable.
Powered by an Intel Celeron chipset, the laptop still offers as much as 2.16GHz of clock speed, two speakers and a rugged case for ‘carefree’ users.
Bundled with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options, among others, a Windows 10 operating system keeps the house in order.
