Navigate the work from home and study from a home set-up with ease and comfort, by investing in a base-level laptop that can be purchased within a tight budget. Laptop manufacturers have been experiencing a good run over the last decade or so, and particularly over the last few years, but even the savviest of manufacturers probably had not expected a windfall year like 2020. 


The work-from-home, and study-from-home situation that we find ourselves in today has meant that every single person, child or grown-up notwithstanding, needed to have their own dedicated device in order to function normally in this new normal.

Countless households previously got by very effectively with just one PC or laptop in the household that was used by everyone, as and when required. But now, we are forced to upgrade to one smartphone or laptop per working or studying member of the household. 

Most of the virtual meeting platforms do not offer the same amount of functionality on phones. As a result, most households (or at least those that could afford it) have either already purchased, or are looking to purchase low-budget laptops that allow everyone to go about their daily work in peace. 

If you are looking to invest in a laptop to work from home, or if you are looking to buy a laptop to enable your child to navigate virtual lessons with ease, we are here to help.

We have looked for the best laptops under 25,000 INR that would enable you to get your basic work done without any hassles. A combination of regular-sized and mini laptops; these models come with all the basic features that you will need for work, or for your virtual lessons.

This mini laptop combines the functions of a laptop with the convenience of a tab, because it is detachable. It also boasts a rear camera and a front-facing camera that you can use for virtual meetings.

The laptop comes with the Intel Gemini Lake Celeron N4000 processor, and offers 4GB RAM with a 64GB hard drive, while running on Windows 10 OS. With a display size a little more than 25 cm (10 inch), the Lenovo IdeaPad D330 comes with a 5000mAh battery.

Asus Celeron

This laptop comes with an inbuilt microphone and webcam to enable virtual classes and meetings, and like all of its counterparts on this list of laptops under 25,000 INR, it comes with a Windows 10 OS.

The ones with especially good graphics cards and multiple core processors could also double up as good gaming devices. The user of the device can also stream shows, movies and music of their preference on these laptops.

For any basic, everyday user, these laptops can more than serve their needs without burning a hole in the buyer’s pocket.
