Feature-rich, portable and yet they deliver decent performance. Try these five if you are looking for a laptop to add to your gadget arsenal without spending a bomb.

Tablets, phablets and smartphones are for sure eating up all the market that was once occupied by laptops. Even though, tablets and smartphones are ruling the market today, there still are people who vie for laptops. And true, there are some purposes, where these new-age gadgets can't replace laptops.

Realising this, manufacturers have never stopped flooding the market with new laptops. Much work still goes into laptops, and people still search hard and opt for the best of laptops over tablets. The most-sought-after are the ultrabooks and notebooks. Gaming laptops, laptops for professionals, laptops for students, laptops for usage at home, you ask for it, and you get it.

But then, not many, or rather not everyone is willing to spend a bomb on laptops. Listed here are some of the best affordable laptops available in India.

1. Dell Inspiron 14R Laptop
Price: Rs 32,300

At a price point as low as this, along with the specifications that it has been blessed with, it is easily one of the smartest laptop among the current crop available in India.

Weighing a mere 2.35kg makes it an easy-to-carry machine. A display with 1366 x 768 resolution with TrueLife, the shining 14-inch wide screen attracts a lot of attention.

Dell Inspiron 14R draws its power from Intel Core i3 2330M processor, comes with a 320GB storage, 2GB DDR3 SDRAM memory clocked at 1333MHz.

Also making this a worth-it buy are Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 with Wi-Fi, Interl Graphics video card, 12.7" SATA tray load DVD+/-RW optical drive, 6-cell lithium-ion battery giving a backup of 2hr straight.

VAIO E Series SVE15113ENB
Price: Rs 31,990

Such a price tag for a VAIO laptop is pretty much not expected, but this one has a second generation processor, thus the low price. However, processing is nowhere to be called slow.

With exclusive xLOUD and Clear Phase technology bundled, the sound level is much higher than the competition and definitely high quality. Such sound technology compliments the 15.5-inch TFT display with a resolution of 1233 x 768 pixels, Intel HD graphics 3000.

The machine works much smoother than you'd have expected one with Windows 7 Home basic, Intel i3 2370M processor (2.4GHz), 320GB HDD, 4GB DDR3 RAM, DVD SuperMulti Drive.

Though it is a bit bulky at 2.7kg, it comes with VGP-BPS26 lithium-ion battery, which backs your functioning up to 4 hours of use, along with rapid wake and eco-mode to make it work longer.
