The best budget laptops as of 2015 include the Acer C720P-2600, Lenovo N20p Chromebook, and Samsung Chromebook 2, according to DigitalTrends.com. Some budget laptops are as good as their more expensive competitors.
The Acer C720P-2600 is quick and attractive, and has a good combination of usability and portability. The features include HDMI, Bluetooth, webcam and a touch screen. The quick processor and pleasing touch-pad and keyboard make this Acer a worthy purchase. The downside is that it comes with weak speakers and a 720p display, which is considered low quality.
The Lenovo N20p Chromebook is both portable and functional. It offers great connectivity, long battery life and is thin and lightweight. It also has a good touch-pad and keyboard. The downside of this Lenovo model is that it does not offer the same level of performance expected from a modern Chromebook. The exterior is also boring.
Lastly, the Samsung Chromebook 2 is solid in its construction, has improved battery life and comes with a good keyboard. It has loud speakers, comfortable input devices and an attractive design. The drawbacks are that it does not have a full-size SD card slot and the screen has issues with viewing angle. It also has only 2 gigabytes of RAM, making multitasking difficult.
