Entry-level laptops cost anything from Rs 27,000 to Rs 40,000, and some even higher. Here, we’re considering the price and hardware used. In terms of hardware, we’ve included laptops that use the Intel Core i3 CPUs, which offer a better price-performance ratio.Ge

Dell Inspiron 14R
Price: Rs 37,490
Screen size/ resolution: 14-inch/ 1366 x 768 pixels
Processor: Intel Core i3-330M, 2.13 GHz
RAM: 3 GB
Hard drive: 320 GB
Operating system: Windows 7 Home Basic
Starting from Rs 32,900, most Inspiron 14R variants are powered by Intel Core i3 CPUs, with 2 GB RAM, a 320 GB hard drive, onboard Intel HD graphics, a 14-inch screen and Windows 7 Home Premium. More RAM and hard drive space means the price increases. The fully loaded entry-level variant in this model features a discrete GPU (the ATI Radeon 5470) with a Core i5 CPU, which costs Rs 41,900.

Sony Vaio E
Sony VPC EB14 EN/BI
Price: 37,490
Screen size/ resolution: 15.5-inch / 1366 x 768
Processor: Intel Core i3-330M, 2.13 GHz
RAM: 3 GB
Hard drive: 320 GB
Operating system: Windows 7 Home Basic
Sony’s latest Vaio E series is greatly affordable and features a decent GPU, an entry-level CPU, sufficient RAM and ample screen space. The only downside is the weight.

Dell Vostro 3300
Price: Rs. 35,900
Screen size/ resolution: 13-inch/ 1366 x 768 pixels
Processor: Intel Core i3-350M, 2.26 GHz

One of the four variants of the Vostro 3300 is powered by an Intel Core i3 CPU, priced at Rs 35,900, and has onboard Intel HD graphics. It’s a good pick at this price for people who want an office laptop that suffices for entry-level performance and daily office chores.
