There are so many good laptops in this price range that choosing the best according to your needs is a difficult task.

So, to help you buy the best, we have put together a list of the best Laptops under Rs. 50,000.

We have carefully analyzed each and every laptop in this price range based on an end user’s perspective.

Read along!

 

 

1. Acer Aspire 5

Best Laptops Under Rs. 50,000
Overall Best Pick
  • Best for power users under a budget
  • Easy hardware upgradability options
  • Lack of a full HD display is a minus

The Acer Aspire 5 is our best laptop pick under Rs. 50,000 for most users.

This powerful laptop is an ideal choice not just for casual users but even for gamers and heavy users who can’t afford to pay a premium.

The Acer Aspire 5 is mostly made of plastic with a grooved finish on top and an Aluminum keyboard deck.

It has got a good hinge design with 180-degree rotation as well.

It is relatively thin and light for a 15.6-inch laptop with 21mm thickness and 2.2Kg weight.

The overall build quality is definitely justifiable for the price.

The Aspire 5 has all the ports and connectivity options including USB Type-C and USB 3 ports.

Its touch pad is a windows precision track pad which is very responsive.

The Keyboard is also user-friendly and responsive but they’re not back-lit.

The Aspire 5 is powered by the new 8th generation Intel Core i5 processor.

We can say without any doubt that the Core i5-8250U is indeed quite an improvement over its previous iteration.

You can expect about 50% increase in overall performance and even higher in multitasking.

The most impressive feature of Aspire 5 is its 2GB Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics card.

This midrange GPU is powerful enough to play most AAA titles without much frame drops.

Add an SSD to this laptop and it will be the cheapest gaming laptop under Rs. 50,000.

Aspire 5 packs in an 8GB DDR4 RAM and has a 1 TB mechanical hard disk (5400 RPM, duh!).

This can be replaced by an M.2 SSD if you need faster performance.

We recommend an SSD replacement if you are into a lot of gaming.

It has 64bit Windows 10 OS Home Edition preloaded as well.

Thanks to the 8th gen processor, the battery life has seen a considerable improvement.

You can expect 6-7 hours of life in normal use and 4-5 hours in heavy use.

Enough with the praises, now let’s talk about the cons of this laptop.

The biggest negative of Acer Aspire 5 is its mediocre display.

It sports a 15.6-inch, HD display made of TN panel.

Though the viewing angles are pretty good, this display has poor colour gamut and the contrast is quite disappointing.

Another drawback is its speaker loudness.

Even though it has dual speakers which are reasonably loud, I felt the audio quality was not great.

Also, if you’re still old school, you may get disappointed due to the lack of a DVD drive in this laptop.

Apart from these minor cons which are not a deal breaker for many, I feel the Acer Aspire 5 is the best laptop under Rs.50,000 for most people.

This laptop can satisfy the needs of a casual user, moderate-to-heavy gamer, multi tasker and even power hungry users seamlessly.

2. Lenovo Ideapad 320 Series

Best Laptops Under Rs. 50,000
Runner-Up Pick
  • Laptop for everyday use
  • Solidly built chassis
  • Discrete GPU adds value to the overall package

Lenovo’s Ideapad 320 series has many laptops offering different specifications catering to varying customer base.

Our runner-up pick, the Lenovo Ideapad 320 80XL033MIN model has almost everything you expect from a laptop under Rs.50,000.

Let’s dive into a detailed review of this laptop.

The Lenovo Ideapad 320 80XL033MIN is powered by the 7th Generation Intel Core i5 chipset with a clock rate of 2.5GHz.

It comes preloaded with 64 bit Windows 10 operating system right out of the box.

One of the prominent features of this laptop is its 2GB GDDR5 Nvidia GeForce 940MX Graphics Card.

Though this is not as powerful as the Nvidia Geforce MX150, the 940MX performs pretty well on its own terms.

Games like GTA V and FIFA 18 can be played on this laptop without much frame drops.

You can experience smooth multitasking and high-end performance on this machine thanks to its 8GB DDR4 RAM.

It sports a 15.6-inch HD display with 1366*768 pixel resolution so the images won’t be that sharp.

The storage space offered is 1TB (HDD) and there is no option to connect an SSD if you need to expand.

The body of this laptop is made up of plastic and aluminum with a 180-degree rotatable hinge.

The aluminum texture of the body gives a nice experience while using the keyboard.

On the connectivity front, Lenovo has done a good job with Ideapad 320 series.

It has all the necessary ports and slots including USB-Type C for faster data transfer.

The battery life is an impressive 4-5 hour.

Now coming into the things we didn’t like about this laptop, apart from an uninspiring HD display, we felt the speaker quality was average.

The audio from the bottom firing speakers was not loud enough for our liking.

Except for these minor cons, the Lenovo Ideapad 320 80XL033MIN is a solid laptop with impressive features under Rs. 50,000.

If your budget is less, the Lenovo Ideapad 320E 80XL03FUIN – a DOS variant in the same series is a great choice.

It has all the features of the former model except a preloaded Windows 10.

You have to manually install Windows 10 and drivers with this model though.

3. MSI Prestige PL Series

Best Laptops Under Rs. 50,000
Best Laptop Strictly For Gamers
  • Best productivity laptop under Rs.50,000
  • True Quad core processor
  • Lack of adequate service centers is a minus

MSI is a Taiwanese laptop manufacturer famous for their series of gaming laptops across the globe.

They arrived pretty late in Indian market at the end of 2017.

Since then MSI has released some of the high end performance laptops in the Indian market.

The prestige series of laptops are MSI’s entry-level offerings in this segment.

The MSI PL62 7RC-270XIN runs on 7th Generation Intel Core i5 7300HQ chipset.

Even though this is not the latest Intel chipset, it has the advantage of being a powerful processor.

Also, it has the latest graphics card for notebook gaming, the Nvidia GeForce MX150.

This 2GB GDDR5 graphics card is proved to be two times better than the earlier 940MX variant.

MSI’s cooler boost technology allows you to play heavy games without much overheating.

The MSI PL62 has an 8GB RAM and 1TB of hard disk storage.

But you have the option to add an M.2 SSD for faster data transfer on this laptop.

The RAM memory is expandable up to 32GB as well.

MSI has another great model under Rs. 50,000 with 7th Gen Core i7 processor, the MSI CX62 7QL.

This laptop has the disadvantage of having the Nvidia GeForce 940MX which is an inferior graphics card when compared to MX150.

Also, its chipset is not an HQ variant.

Now coming to the design and build quality of this laptop, the top surface of MSI PL62 is made of brushed aluminum.

It has a 15.6-inch Full HD anti-glare display which is very much needed for a gaming laptop.

Most of the required ports and connectivity options including USB Type-C are present on the laptop except a DVD drive.

The track pad and keyboard are solidly built for a gaming laptop.

The MSI PL62 has a 120W AC Adapter inside the box to charge its 6 battery cell.

The battery life is long lasting in normal use.

If you’re doing graphics intensive tasks like gaming and editing, you can expect 2-3 hours of juice.

The speaker quality is also very good on this laptop thanks to their proprietary Nahimic 2 Sound Technology.

It has four 2W speakers which are well positioned at the front to give great audio experience.

Let’s now look at the cons of MSI PL62 apart from the absence of DVD Drive.

The biggest noticeable drawback of this laptop is the absence of Windows 10 OS out of the box.

You have to manually install OS and drivers on it.

Another big negative of this laptop is the after-sale service of MSI and the Warranty provided.

MSI has limited number of service centres in India right now as they are a new player in Indian Market.

In conclusion, the MSI Prestige PL62 7RC-270XIN is the best laptop strictly for gamers and graphics-intensive users.

It has the best available graphics card, a powerful chipset, a solid build quality with Full HD display and well-designed keyboards under Rs. 50,000.

8. Acer Swift 3

Best Laptops Under Rs. 50,000
Best with AMD Chip
  • Budget powerhouse
  • Best for productivity
  • Good quality display

If you remember, back in 2017, AMD made a big statement in chipset market with their new Ryzen series processors.

The Acer Swift 3 is running on the Ryzen 5 2500U mobile chipset having 4 cores and a clock speed of 2GHz.

This CPU is comparatively better than the 7th gen Intel Core i5 mobile CPU (7200U) but lost to 8th gen Intel Core i5 CPU (8250U) in terms of overall performance.

But it’s the GPU where AMD has a huge competitive advantage: the Ryzen 5 2500U has a Vega 8 GPU.

This GPU is easily twice as fast from a pure compute perspective compared to Intel’s UHD Graphics 620.

This processor is excellent for productivity, moderate editing purpose and day to day casual tasks.

More on this chipset can be found at this link.

Apart from a great chipset, the Acer Swift 3 has a beautiful design with a metal build, brushed aluminum lid and a 180-degree rotatable hinge.

The body has a typical Acer design with big bezels.

Another great feature of this laptop is its 15.6-inch full HD IPS display.

As most of the laptops in this price of Rs. 50,000 are having low-quality TN display’s, this is a welcome move.

This display is pretty good with great colour accuracy and decent viewing angles.

The Acer Swift 3 has 4 cell 3320mAh battery which lasts up to 5 hours in normal use.

If you’re into heavy gaming, the battery will drain pretty fast.

The swift 3 even have a backlit keyboard which will be a blessing while gaming.

At this price under Rs. 50,000, the Acer Sift 3 is the best laptop in India with AMD chipset under the hood.
