    I need a laptop/netbook for mobility and for office use/casual use.Already have a desktop but I can't carry it everywhere. Also I don't like to sit in front of a desktop after sitting whole day in office. So suggest me a decent netbook/cheap laptop.



    1) What is your budget? 10 k expandable to max 15k


    2) What size & weight consideration (if any) would you prefer?
    Netbook; 10' or more




    3) What are the primary tasks you will be performing with this notebook?

    Net Browsing,Youtube, word processing, power point, watching movies


    5) Any typical configuration in your mind you're eying for ? Ram more than 2gb. If 2 gb then should be expandable.


    4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
    Any brand with good ASS in my area


    6) Anything else you would like to say?
    Screen resolution ( 768p (HD) / 900p / 1080p (Full HD) ) N/A
    Battery back up - Good battery backup. Min 4 hours
    Purchase place ( Online (eg - flipkart, infibeam) /- Online or offline.
    I have found these online. What do you guys think?

    Buy Dell Inspiron 11 3162 11.6-inch Laptop (Celeron N3060 /2GB/32GB eMMC Storage /Windows 10 Home), Blue Online at Low Prices in India - Amazon.i


    Amazon.in: Buy iBall Exemplaire CompBook 14-inch Laptop (Atom Z3735F/2GB/32GB/Windows 10/Integrated Graphics) Online at Low Prices in India | iBall Reviews & Rating

    P.s. While browsing i like to open 10-15 tabs. So netbook shouldn't hang.

    Get the Dell one as there are no good options in your budget.

    Thanks. But I came across some reviews which said ram n storage cannot be upgraded.

    I need one whose ram I can upgrade to atleast 4gb in case of need.

    Expandable Ram is doubtful in that price range. Have a look at refurbished or used laptops. You will get better config than those 15k Atom based netbooks IMO.

    Bought a second hand tablet from olx recently. Tablet went kaput in 2 days. Seller not traceable since then. Hence don't want to try a used product again.

    What about refurbished? Where can i get them? Do refurbished laptops have warranty?

    Sorry about your bad experience. I bought a used RAM for my laptop. working great. Hence recommended the used option. My close relative bought a refurbished HP Laptop from Greendust about 1.5 years ago. Working great. He got a 1 year warranty as far as I know. My sister and brother-in-law bought a AIO Lenovo PC(It was Demo unit from a showroom). Working great for past 3 years. They had also got 1 year warranty. Warranty time will vary i presume. But you do get warranty unlike 2nd hand laptops.

    Ram's are probably the safest bet you can have while buying 2nd handm Lpatop's a different story altogether.

    I checked out Greendust but refurbished laptops are not presenf in the webste. Amazon refurbished are as costly as new. Any other websites for getting refurbished products?

    Try acer lap tab s1003 . About 14k. Bit above your budget, but has official win10 2gb ram and 32 gb ssd , and is new so less hassles . I have it so talking from personal experience.

    Checked the Greendust website. I too didn't find any laptops. Saiyangoku has bought a headphone from Overcart. I don't have any experience with any other website. So can't suggest.

    10 inch screen is good for reading.

    Congrats on the purchase. Only you can tell whether you need a microsd card or not, based on your usage. If you wanna buy one, Sandisk cards are good and backed with good after sales service. I would recommend a 32-64gb card and if you need more get a external hard drive.
