Review : For those who think this is a china product they are completely mistaken, its a German Make laptop. This laptop has Pentium i3 2nd Gen processor which is enough for daily work and programming. Comfortably runs Windows Aero, Visual Studio 2010, Eclipse with no lag. It boots very fast and performance is comparable to i3. The cooling for this laptop is also good

The battery backup time is 6 hours which is big plus point for a laptop in this price. Another plus point is it can charge phones from USB port even when laptop is shut down.There’s ECO function which switches to performance vs power saving mode with single hotkey.

Looks are not the best, but it’s very good for this price range. Cam quality is good enough for video chatting. Speakers are loud enough to play music and audio chat. 3 USB 2.0 ports, but lacks USB 3.0 port however if you need one though.

 

Above top 5 budget laptops are best in the class. The selection is made considering the price as priority and essential features required for regular use.
