Laptop prices in India start at 12000 Rs. Low price aka entry-level laptops have 2GB to 4GB RAM, AMD A4, or Intel Celeron/Atom processor, etc. These two Intel processors are not as powerful as Core i3/i5 or AMD A6/A8 processors but they are way advanced than the Pentium processors that were available for purchase or were shipped with desktops manufactured in the early 2000s and late 1990s. 4GB or 2GB RAM is enough for day to day tasks such as internet browsing, editing documents, etc. You can also play games that run on low-end computers under low settings. Below I’ve shared the best laptops under 15000 and 20000 Rs that are suitable for basic tasks such as reading/composing emails, creating spreadsheets, opening PDFs, running lightweight software, etc.

Other features of the above laptops:
USB port: As the storage memory isn’t too high, you can connect a flash drive to your laptop to save data. You can also connect your smartphone or tablet to the laptop.
HDMI port: As the laptops have an HDMI port, you can connect them to a TV or a projector.
No optical drive: Very few people store data to DVD/CD drives. Thus, laptops under 20000 and 15000 (or costlier ones) don’t have an optical drive.
Bluetooth and WLAN: With Bluetooth, you can transfer files from/to a mobile phone. You can connect the laptops under 15000 and 20000 Rs to a hotspot or router to use the internet.
