Best Laptops Under Rs. 80,000-Best Value for Money Pick
Overall Best Pick
  • Excellent fit and finish
  • Suited for media consumption
  • Wide service network

The Pavilion series has been a runaway hit for HP with its great specs at reasonable price segments.

The new Pavilion 15 is lurking in the premium laptop market with some of the best in class internals and loaded with features that will attract customers for sure.

Build quality and design

The new HP pavilion follows the design principles set by previous pavilion laptops priced under Rs.60,000.

But the one thing that sets this device apart from the rest is the all new black and green accent that the company has now chosen over the much popular red and black option.

The already good build quality of the previous generation pavilion notebooks now has elevated in to a whole new level that isn’t just good but great.

The matte finish on the chassis feel good touch and the overall colour scheme looks pretty cool.

The hinge mechanism of this laptop is one of the robust factors and works pretty well even at times with a single hand.

Performance

Inside the beautifully crafted chassis is an eighth generation Intel Core i5-8300H processor that is one of the latest offerings from Intel to the performance mobile computing market.

This processor in itself is capable of running the most demanding of apps without any hassles.

There is 4GB DDR5 Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU inside the chassis for that significant extra oomph when it comes to gaming and graphic intensive tasks.

The 8GB DDR4 RAM gives enough leeway to perform multiple tasks simultaneously.

The 128GB SSD secondary storage can make the device boot up faster and even some of the most necessary app loading times can be reduced significantly.

Display

The 15.6-inch display on this laptop is one of the best in class, we’d have to admit.

This full HD panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels has amazing clarity and colour accuracy that will get you hooked up to this laptop incase you love to watch movies on your laptop.

The not so thick bezels around the screen makes it look even larger and provides an immersive viewing experience.

When it comes to gaming, the 60Hz display provides a smooth full HD experience that feels buttery smooth without any frame skippings in between.

Miscellaneous

The green keyboard backlighting is a sort of unique thing when it comes to this laptop. It feels refreshing and somewhat pleasing to the eyes.

The Bang & Olufsen tuned speakers are placed in the front keyboard deck facing the user and sounds loud and clear.

The new improved design of internal Wi-Fi antenna provides you the best possible signal reception resulting in guaranteed network connectivity within the certain possible range.

Battery life

With a 3-cell Li-ion integrated battery inside, the HP pavilion 15 can last for about 5 hours on a single charge.

The built in HP fast charge technology will help you to juice up the battery up to 90% in just under 90 minutes.

Verdict

The HP Pavilion is a great performance oriented laptop that can double up as a capable media consumption device.

With the abundance of hardware feature such as USB 3.1 ports and an SSD at a couple of rupees less than its contenders, this laptop is definitely worth checking out.

The brand name and the nationwide service network is yet another reason for you to consider purchasing this laptop.

2. Dell Inspiron 15 7000

Best Laptops Under Rs. 80,000-Runner-up Pick
Runner-Up Pick
  • Dependable workhorse laptop
  • Sturdy and durable built
  • Comfortable trackpad

The Inspiron series from Dell started off as a budget laptop lineup and is slowly moving up to the premium laptop segment market with some of the most attractive propositions in the market.

The Inspiron 15 7000 from Dell has been revamped for 2018 and is here with much-improved internals and build quality aimed at providing a better performance for gamers.

Design and Build Quality

At one time, it seemed that the laptop companies were done experimenting with designs. But with the Inspiron 15 7000, Dell has followed a new design trend to make the device look more futuristic and unique.

The hinge design, for example, is oddly attractive. The middle hinge that doesn’t run all the way across the chassis imparts a classy look to this laptop.

The clean and minimalist back chassis and the keyboard deck looks very much like a professional computing device. There are red accents carefully given all over the chassis which adds a performance flair to the laptop.

The trackpad is big and easy to scroll around and has excellent gesture recognition mechanism.

The lined back exhaust plate that hides the vent is another conscious design choice, the company has managed to increase the aesthetic beauty of this gorgeous machine.

Processor and Performance

As you would expect from a premium laptop, the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 comes loaded with an Intel Core i7 7700HQ processor.

Being a true quad-core processor, this chipset is capable of running almost all apps and games with relative ease.

With the support of 8GB DDR4 RAM, this laptop can handle multitasking, the way you would like it to.

Another important addition to the hardware is a 4GB DDR5 Nvidia GTX 1050Ti GPU which will let this device perform excellently when it comes to resource-intensive tasks such as video editing and heavy gaming.

Display

Being a full sized laptop, the Dell Inspiron 7000 comes with a 15.6-inch widescreen display that has good brightness and contrast levels.

However, we do felt that the colour accuracy is a bit on the lower side. If you are buying this laptop for graphic designing works, you might want to keep this in mind.

Otherwise, the display is pretty sharp, crisp and offers good viewing angles.

The thick bezel around the display is what we didn’t like about this panel. It looks very ugly at first sight. However, you will probably get used to this and it won’t be a problem after a few days of usage.

Miscellaneous

You might know that SSDs are much faster than mechanical HDDs. This laptop comes loaded with a 256GB SSD for installing operating system and a selected few applications.

This makes the laptop run faster and boot quicker. Near instantaneous app load times will be a delight worth enjoying at this price point.

Battery Life

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 comes with a 4-cell integrated Li-ion battery inside which will give you a battery life of about 4-5 hours on moderate usage.

However, if you are planning to do all the heavy stuff such as gaming or video editing, we’d suggest you to plug in the laptop and then do it.

Verdict

The Dell Inspiron 7000 is a great laptop that can be concluded as a mini version of the Alienware gaming laptop. Whatever be the tasks you throw at this amazing piece of hardware, it will do it quite comfortably.

If you don’t mind carrying a 2.65Kg gadget in your backpack, this is one of the best workhorse laptops out there.

The brightness of this panel is great and the anti-glare coating further increases the legibility of the display in brightly lit environments. Furthermore, the screen can be calibrated according to your individual preference with the help of MSI Dragon centre app.

The keyboard is backlit with a single red colour illumination. The keys feel nice and tactile. There is a slight flex on the keyboard chassis but nothing that affects the usability of the device.

Speakers and Battery Life

There are four downfacing speakers that produce loud sound output. The audio from the laptop lacks punch.

The battery of this device lasts for about 4 hours on a single charge under normal usage and if you’re gaming or doing some heavy rendering, the battery drains much faster.

Verdict
