Computer technology is not cheap these days, but this does not mean that you need to deny yourself pleasure or run for a loan. For example, a laptop for study or surfing the Internet may well be budgetary. We have selected from the assortment of stores several worthy, in our opinion, models worth up to 20,000 rubles, which are quite suitable for the simplest tasks.

DIGMA EVE 10 A201: the mega-economical option

  • Screen diagonal: 10.1 inches
  • Screen resolution: 1920 * 1200
  • Operating system: Windows 10 Home
  • Processor: Intel Atom x5 Z8350
  • Processor frequency: 1440 MHz
  • Number of processor cores: 4
  • RAM size: 2 GB
  • Storage capacity: SSD 64 GB

One of the novelties of the summer of 2021, which does not pretend to be a full-fledged laptop, but costs only about 15,000 rubles. In principle, it is quite suitable for working with documents, surfing or making calls in communicators.

The laptop is already “out of the box” ready for use – Windows 10 Home is installed initially, you do not need to buy anything. The main thing when working is to limit yourself in the number of open tabs and programs, since there is only 2 GB of RAM here. There is also a little constant, but this is not a slow HDD, but a smart SSD.

The device weighs less than a kilogram. The battery life is not indicated in the specifications, but the battery here is 5000 mAh, according to personal experience, it should be enough for 3-4 hours.

Lenovo Ideapad L340-15API: Universal Option

  • Screen diagonal: 15.6 inches
  • Screen resolution: 1920 * 1080
  • Operating system: no
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 3200U
  • Processor frequency: 2600 MHz
  • Number of processor cores: 2
  • RAM size: 4 GB
  • Hard disk capacity: SSD 256 GB

An option for those who like to work and watch movies, and at the same time do not strain with a small screen. True, the matrix here is TN, but the screen size is 15.6 inches, and the resolution is 1920 * 1080.

Other pluses include a full-size keyboard (Lenovo has one of the best), a large touchpad and high-quality speakers with Dolby Audio support. The run-down battery life is up to 8.5 hours, and the laptop also charges quite quickly: up to 80% in just an hour. Note that the Ideapad L340 is presented with other, more productive hardware, but such modifications do not fit into our budget of 30,000 rubles.

HP 14s-fq1018ur: one of the most powerful

  • Screen diagonal: 14 inches
  • Screen resolution: 1920×1080
  • Operating system: no
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 5300U
  • Processor frequency: 2600 MHz
  • Number of processor cores: 4
  • RAM size: 8 GB
  • Storage capacity: SSD 256 GB

The offer is actually almost unique: it is unlikely from another manufacturer in the range of up to 30,000 rubles. you will find such a successful combination of “iron”.

The main bonuses are, of course, inside. While most of the budget competitors run on simple dual-core processors, there is already an AMD Ryzen 3 5300U with 4 cores and a clock speed of 2600 MHz. Plus 8 GB of RAM (which is also a rarity in this segment) and a 256 GB SSD. Moreover, the RAM can be expanded to 16 GB by installing two bars of 8. True, the operating system is not included, but this problem can be solved.

HP 15-gw0028ur: discrete graphics

  • Screen diagonal: 15.6 inches
  • Screen resolution: 1920 * 1080
  • Operating system: no
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 3250U
  • Processor frequency: 2600 MHz
  • Number of processor cores: 2
  • RAM size: 4 GB
  • Storage capacity: SSD 256 GB

Another HP representative in our selection. Simply because other laptops with a discrete graphics card simply cannot be bought for that price.

With the rest of the iron, too, everything is fine. The processor is last year’s AMD Ryzen 3 3250U with 2 cores and 4 threads, clocked at 2600 MHz and, of course, no overclocking capability. 4 GB of RAM is enough for office tasks, moreover, the presence of discrete graphics eliminates the “eating away” of the RAM by the built-in graphics adapter. The laptop has a 256 GB SSD, which is also quite enough for most users (especially those who know how to use cloud storage).

There are no complaints about the screen – IPS-matrix, good viewing angles, the resolution of 1920 * 1080 dpi is quite relevant today. The claimed operating time is over 6 hours (or more than 8 if you watch the video from the media).

Acer ASPIRE 3 A317-32: big screen

  • Screen diagonal: 17.3 inches
  • Screen Resolution: 1600 * 900
  • Operating System: Endless OS
  • Processor: Intel Pentium Silver N5000
  • Processor frequency: 1100 MHz
  • Number of processor cores: 4
  • RAM size: 4 GB
  • Drive capacity: HDD 1000 GB

It is clear that they did not manage without compromises. Firstly, the screen here is TN with a low resolution 1600 * 900 dpi. Secondly, the RAM is only 4 GB. At the same time, the free operating system Ednless OS is preinstalled – if its name does not tell you anything, this is one of the versions of Linux. Of course, it can be replaced with the more familiar Windows 10, but this will take time and money.

On the other hand, a capacious 1 TB HDD is installed here, there are all the necessary ports, including LAN. Autonomy is declared at the level of 7 hours, but according to user reviews, it is much more modest: about 4.
