Indian electronics maker iBall has launched another laptop, CompBook Premio v2.0, expanding its portfolio in the country.

But this one has more power and memory than its predecessors, CompBook Exemplaire+, CompBook Aer3 and Slide PenBook.

Priced at ₹21,999, this 14-inch device is as fair a deal as they come.

 

The customer base it aims for students and business users and comes with Windows 10 and Intel Pentium Quad Core processor pre-installed.

The processing speed can go up to 2.5 GHz.

It has a 4GB RAM and a 32GB in-built storage space.

The memory can be expanded to 128 GB.

It has a 0.3 megapixel camera as well.

The 38Wh Li-Polymer battery is good enough to last you a whole day. You can expand the battery life with the help of the intelligent power-saving feature of Windows 10.

Though it runs on Windows 10 Home, you can upgrade it to Windows 10 Pro for an extra ₹3,000.

The laptop did not heat up despite being used for hours.

Also, it worked smoothly, with barely perceptible lag, despite my opening quite a few apps.

It also boasts an HD display and "immersive visuals".

The resolution is 1,366x768 and watching YouTube videos on it was a pleasure.

A precision mouse touch pad allows for multi-functionality.

The laptop is also pretty sleek and comes in variants of gun metal colour.

At a thickness of 17 mm, and weighing only about 1.3 kg, it is easy to carry around.

This is a major consideration for all laptops now.
