Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)
Its time to attempt some of the queries which students and parents may ask frequently to buy a laptop, we will try to cover most of your doubts in a single article, you can also post your question in the comment box.

Should we buy 9th Gen Intel Core Laptop or 10th Gen?

Keep one thing in mind Laptop OEMs will always give new technology with the latest processor. 10th Gen Processor is superior and costly as well. So either you opt for 9th Gen with higher cores or buy 10th Gen Laptop with lesser core for better performance. Now Intel has launched the 11th Gen Intel Core Processor so you will see many new Laptops coming with this processor as well.

Is it Worth Buying Used Laptop?

I have seen OEMs are selling renewed Laptops from their authorized channel and it is cost-effective in comparison to the new Laptop. Generally, it comes with a 6-month warranty. You can check if you are getting a better deal.

Which is the most reliable Laptop brand in the sub 40000 category?

In India, as you know 5 or 6 brands are dominating the mass consumer Laptop market in the sub 40000 range. Most of them are reliable in terms of their service network presence in the country. I will vote for HP, Dell, and ASUS by seeing their current performance.
