Best laptops under Rs 40,000 in India for September 2019

Just like smartphones, it is becoming more and more difficult to choose a laptop these days as the number of options available from different companies make it difficult to select the best one. If you are in the market for a laptop priced under Rs 40,000 and wish to get one without compromising on any features, there are many options to choose from.

The sub-Rs 40,000 segment is also the most asked price segment when it comes to notebooks. From students to office-goers, everyone can easily get a laptop that does basic day to day tasks with ease in this range.

If it's about the add-ons, many of them offer a dedicated graphics card or multimedia features, but that's certainly not enough power to suffice the needs of a video editor or a graphic designer. There are many configurations available, some with newer processors and some with older ones. 

In this post, we have listed some of the best laptops available under Rs 40,000 in India.
