How to choose a budget laptop?

The core of the laptops’ performance is the CPU; it is like a brain that processes all the programs. As you are choosing a laptop with limited budget, the fourth generation Intel Core will not appear in your shopping list. Generally, Intel Core i3/ i5 CPU has a good performance at their price, and the AMD processor has dropped out the race for many years. Never expect your budget laptop to have a good graphic performance-for a decent graphics processor is an expensive part of the budgets. For the most part, expect the laptop to do no more than play basic undemanding games or just drop the image quality settings to the basic level.

At the budget end, you will not see any solid state drives, but even the hard drives you should never compromise to less than 320GB, the battery life in this level is not so good as we reviewed before, as the battery is relatively expensive, the manufactures are willing to offer as less as they can. General speaking, the find a battery life around 4 hours is good in the budget category. Nowadays, more and more laptops have support the fast USB 3.0 ports for getting data transfer faster. But in the budget laptops, the total USB 2.0 ports choices may be a good compromise point, for the USB 2.0 still support many external devices and the transfer speed does not significantly slow your operation.

Although the laptop design has been more and more fashion, but the budget laptops are not the models on the bridge, most of the budget laptops are covered with a cheaper, lumpier plastic exterior, so the body design will not be so compact as other laptops. In conclusion, if you prepared to buy a laptop within a small budget, you must get prepare to compromise in many aspects. As the laptops are more personal than the desktops, you will has a cratierir in your mind that which aspect is the most useless.

Selecting in the limited area is hard, so we have present the top 10 budget laptops for you here.
