We all know that lockdown is not going to be permanent. People are going to start buying laptops and phones as before. If you plan to buy a laptop under 50000 INR, there are a few key considerations.

Go for an 8 GB RAM or at least 4 GB RAM with the expandable slot. If you are to resort to HDD, consider getting an additional M.2 SSD slot. These parameters help keep up with the fast computing demands of 2020.

In regards to visuals, a 15.6″ Full HD display should suffice. Aim for a 3-4 GB GFX card with dedicated graphics. If you are not getting dedicated graphics, make sure to get integrated graphics on your laptop. It will provide for the basic gaming experience.
