Laptop use in India has gone up by leaps, with market analysts projecting revenue in the segment of tablets and laptops to reach $8.2 million USD in 2021. Annually, the market growth rate (CAGR) is predicted to be 2.4 percent between 2021 and 2025. During the pandemic, thousands of Indians invested in laptops as they were cooped up at home.
Their homes became the new office, classrooms, and overall workspace for Indians during the coronavirus outbreak. In fact, it still is, with over 50 percent of office staff choosing the work-from-home option, even as lockdowns eased. Fearing a second wave, many people are opting to remain at home.
Laptops that offer portability and versatility in every price segment, and for all purposes, lend a great way to kill time, as they do to effectively execute tasks. For regular use, people rely on laptops with i3 processors. This is a basic-level machine like the HP 14s with an Intel Core i3 processor (10th generation).
Nonetheless, most people like to strike a balance between affordability and performance, and will opt for an Intel Core i5 chip in a laptop, such as an excellent HP laptop like the HP 14 (10th generation, core i5). These laptops will go the extra mile and do more than just basic tasks, including a good amount of browsing and a moderate degree of gaming. Batteries in such laptops will be better, offering great performance for extended periods.
Intel Processors are Premium Performers
While AMD is giving Intel a tough run for its money with its new Ryzen processors, Intel isn’t taking a backseat in its area of expertise — making processors for laptops, desktops, and other devices that count. For instance, the Asus Vivobook 14 (X409JA) has an Intel Core i5 chip, is lightweight, and comes with a decent 8GB RAM. Performance-wise, this laptop gets all your job done quickly and efficiently, combining a fabulous Intel Ice Lake chip with 10 generation innovation. At the Computer and Electronics Show of 2021, which was held virtually, Intel was the star of the show with the brand’s new processors on display for all to envy.
Premier makers like Acer, Asus and Dell laptops will have these power packages in most of their upcoming models, as will tried and tested brands like Apple and Lenovo, not to mention, HP. Intel, with its most stunning processors yet, the Tiger Lake H35 series processors (11th generation) wowed the audience, as they get ready to power future laptops which will be uber slim and amazingly powerful. These processors can run robust programmes, apps, and displays at 1440p without draining the laptop’s battery, or overheating the machine. Plus, with new and advanced batteries, these performance-driven chips will make a laptop ultra-powerful.
