We will help you find best netbook in India. When you are buying a netbook in India in 2017, it is suggested to go for the mini laptop model with good battery backup, thin and light design. Performance also matters with quad core Atom or latest Intel Celeron onboard.
A netbook is typically a laptop that retails for under 25000 rupees and packs a display that measures 12 inches or less. Most of the cheap netbooks in India pack either Atom processor or entry level Intel Pentium or Celeron processor. Certain netbooks in 2017 feature touch screen display as well. Most of the models come with Windows 10 onboard but now there are some offerings from Google as well.
As said before, all netbooks a k a mini laptops in India come with either Atom / Pentium / Celeron CPU so if you want to buy Core i5 or i3 laptop in India, you will have to shell out more. Back in 2008, the major netbook manufactures included only Asus and Acer but now Micromax is turning out the market leader with its extensive feature set and aggressive pricing. For instance, it is possible to buy a Micromax netbook under 15000 in India and it will get you a nice 12″ display, roomy keyboard and excellent battery life.
Things to keep in mind before looking for best netbook in India.
Screen size – Make sure not to go for bigger display. Anything between 10-12 inch falls into the netbook territory. Most of them come with 11.6” display and the reason behind this is the fact manufactures are able to fit near-full size keyboard into an 11” chassis. 12” netbooks have got rarer over the past few years as they are nearly same size as a 13” laptop. Also an 11” is neither too small nor too big. Resolution does not play an important role since the screen size is small. Had we been talking about mainstream latpops, we would have suggested to go for full HD or even quad HD laptops.
Touchscreen – A lot of premium netbooks in India come with touchscreen that let you interact with display by using your fingers. Some of them have convertible hinges where you fold the screen back while some have detachable displays where you can detach the screen part and use it as windows 10 tablet. Keep in mind that such models cost almost double so if you are looking for a basic netbook or budget netbook, stick with the non touchscreen ones.
Storage – Most of the manufactures make use of flash storage in order to reduce the weight. A netbook with a flash storage is about 500 grams lighter and that also makes the data stored on them shockproof. Flash storage has no moving parts and thus, the data is stored more securely. That being said, you won’t find a netbook with large 128GB SSD capacity. The reason is due to cost as bigger SSD capacities can increase the overall cost of a netbook significantly. Same is the reason why you don’t find cheap laptops with SSD in India and all of them use hard disk. That being said, if you cannot live with a small flash storage, get a netbook with HDD instead.
Netbook under 20k in India are also there. In fact this is the most popular category and you will be able to find the best sellers under 20k. Here are the best netbooks in India.
