Laptops don’t come cheap, and even if they do, you got to sacrifice on a few of its key features. For instance, a budget laptop may not have Microsoft Windows installed, but instead a Linux alternative. And of course, you definitely cannot expect the best of hardware pumped in.
Trying to bring about a change is the US-based gadget manufacturer, Infocus, brings its brand new offering, the Buddy Notebook– available exclusively on Snapdeal for just Rs. 14,999. Yes, that wasn’t a typo. Amazingly, the laptop runs on the latest Microsoft Windows 10 OS, which probably makes it the only laptop loaded with Windows at a price that low.
What else do we have in store at just 15K? Let’s find out:
• 13.3 inch HD Display
• Microsoft Windows 10 Operating System
• 2.6 GHz Intel Celeron Processor
• 2 GB RAM
• 32 GB eMMC storage
• 8 hours of battery life
• Micro-SD card slot
• 2 USB 3.0 ports
• HDMI port
A 13.3 inch display may not be the largest one around, but definitely big enough to let you enjoy your favourite videos.
The notebook is powered by a 2.6 GHz Intel Celeron Processor along with a 2 GB RAM. Of course, that’s definitely quite less than what a high-end laptop would offer, but don’t forget, you get it all for just 15K, which is truly amazing.
Talking about the space, you might have a hard time pushing all your data onto the notebook as it features only 32 GB of storage. However, it does offer you the flexibility of adding up to 256 GB of SSD storage, which should be sufficient enough. But, let not the storage space be the deciding factor if you wish to buy the Infocus Buddy.
The notebook has an impressive battery backup of 8 hours and comes with multiple connectivity options including a Micro SD card slot, 2 USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI port.
Presently, the Infocus Buddy will be available in 2 colours – Gold and Silver. We can hope for some more colours to be added sometime soon.
Interestingly, Infocus will be offering its customers a swap warranty. So, if you witness a slight hardware defect, get in touch with the Infocus customer support team, and you will receive a replacement for the same.
No doubt, the internal specifications of the notebook do look quite impressive. For now, the Infocus buddy has no potential contender offering the same level of goodness at an average price of 15K. According to InFocus India, the Buddy is meant to offer full-fledged notebook experience at the lowest possible price.
The best performance, a superior build quality and an impressive design quotient is what InFocus intends to offer at a budget-friendly price.
Should you go for it?
Like discussed earlier, the Infocus Buddy may not have the most powerful features packed in, but at just Rs. 14,999, the notebook turns to be the best deal around. So, if watching movies or editing a few files on-the-go is something that you often do, the Infocus Buddy is hands-down the best option.
