    A good choice of laptops, but I think there are many other options to choose from, which are under Rs25000.

    I am using compact 510 and it cost me about 48 thousand Nepali rupees which translates to 30 thousand Indian rupees. Considering the performance of my laptop, I think I made a best deal. However, there are cheaper laptops available. You can get Acer and HCL laptops under 25 thousand rupees. Acer and HCL both are good brands.

    I was also thinking that for the prices ice Senn of the devices listed, I definitely wouldn't be putting them in the budget bracket as you can get deals that are much cheaper.

    With technology it does tend to be true that the more you spend the better specification you get, sometimes you dint need high special, just something that's adequate.

    In my opinion the last one, the Asus model, is the best in terms of relationship between price and quality! It has a good processor and a good amount of RAM regarding the price you will pay for it. Plus the screen that is 15inch, is an average one. And don't forget that nowadays Asus is the best company that is making latops! It's really trustable!

    If I am really keen to take a laptop for study purpose I would look for something below 15-18k only. I can even look for a tablet with a keyboard attached to it separately which provides both portability and ease of use.

    Yes, as @Pwarbi rightly said you get better specifications if you spend higher. But we need to keep in mind its usage also. Personally I am against investing too much on things like laptops and mobile phones which keeps on changing every day or every second in fact. It s better to check our actual requirements before taking a final call.

    Like you say, as long as the device you buy is adequate for what you need then you can't go wrong, but also it's important to remember that people's needs change, and what adequate this year might not be next, so that's the reason I'd spend towards the maximum of your budget rather than as little as possible, but then have to buy a new device every year.

    In the long run that will work out more expensive.

    I've seen students walk around with the latest Apple MacBooks at a nearby college campus. Many of these students probably work as tellers and packers as part-time workers in order to afford tuition fees and those expensive MacBooks. I don't think many young people have a clue of what the word 'Budget' actually means. The laptops that you've mentioned are at least at the mid-level range. They are not truly affordable for most students and will only help in getting them in more debt.
