With the majority of schools holding classes virtually as part of the new normal, a decent, functioning laptop is a must-have for any student. In fact, there are a number of laptops being offered at Lazada’s 7.15 Bounce Back sale that costs roughly the price of your average premium mid-range smartphone!
We check out what Lenovo, ASUS, and Acer have to offer, and here are some of our picks:
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 – Php 15,995 (from Php 18,995)
If you are looking for a basic laptop, Lenovo’s IdeaPad Slim 3 is a good offer at under Php 16k. This model has the basics students need from a laptop: Intel Celeron N4120 processor, 14-inch HD display, 4GB RAM (expandable to 8GB), and 1TB HDD.
Asus X409 – Php 16,999 (from Php 17,995)
If you are looking for an alternate brand, ASUS has a similarly-specced laptop—Celeron N4100 processor, 14-inch HD display, 4GB RAM (expandable to 8GB), and 1TB HDD—that it is offering for Php 1k more. For that premium, you get a USB-C port and three USB-A (2x USB 3.0 and 1x USB 2.0) ports—this is the cheapest laptop you can get that has a USB-C port.
Acer Aspire 3 – Php 19,688 (from Php 20,999)
If you want one with both an SSD and HDD, this Aspire 3 is something you should consider. For under Php 20k, you get a 14-inch HD display, Pentium N5000 processor, 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD, and 128GB SSD for your programs.
