PROS

Summary:

This ASUS laptop model is an excellent choice for someone looking for regular daily tasks. It is okay for school work and local productivity applications. No limitation if you are using the cloud productivity apps like Microsoft 365, Google GSuite or Google Docs.

There is a 1TB HDD version which most people go for because it gives more disk space than this 256GB SSD for the same price. But the performance difference for boot and running browser or apps is quite significant. It is a noticeable difference of seconds vs minutes.

Recommendation is to go for the SSD disk version. If you need more storage later on, you can use external disk of 1TB or more. If it meets your requirement this laptop at such a low price point would make it the value for money best ASUS laptop under 30000.

Conclusion:

Under the 30,000 price range, you see starter configuration of laptops with Intel Pentium, Celeron or Dual Core CPUs and AMD Athlon or A series A9/A6. With 4GB and 1TB HDD or 256GB SSD. There are a few available with MS Office Home and Student, which makes it a complete package if you use those apps.

We recommend going for SSD disk instead of HDD, as you will see a significant performance during boot up of Windows and while browsing or productivity apps.

Unless you are a computer enthusiast or geek or technically computer savvy, go for Windows 10 preloaded. DOS being command line needs a Windows or Linux to be loaded. Linux even though is quite good, can be a challenge for non-technical users.

As rough approximation you can use the following order for CPU performance - {Intel i3, Ryzen 3}, {Pentium Gold, Pentium Silver, AMD Athlon Silver}, {AMD A9, AMD A6}, Celeron Used the braces to indicate similar/close performance of the CPU. Note that it also depends on the CPU clock.

The table below gives the ranking for the best laptops under 30000 in India which are value for money. It is based on combination of CPU, memory, display and storage. You will see a bias towards SSD, as the 5400 rpm HDD can cripple/slow down your laptop irrespective of the CPU power and amount of memory.

Intel i5 or Ryzen 5 CPU laptops do not make it into list of best laptops under 30000 in India. However, Intel i3, Ryzen 3 make it into the list with Lenovo and HP laptops.

One notable point is the AVITA laptops – we have mixed feelings in recommending as they come with best hardware configurations at significantly lower price point. But their service centres are not available in lot of places. Also being new in the market, there is an unknown element on the quality & reliability and also reliable service support in case you have any hardware issues.

In some cases, rankings are quite close, so read our notes on rankings and recommendations below.
