Best laptop for Programmer under 35K

Being a programmer I know the pain of a slow and Laggy machine. Programming is all about the attitude which builds when you are in a good mood but a slow machine can take off your mood.

Sometimes we spent a lot of money to purchase the high configuration machine but due to improper configuration, the machine never gives us the same performance which we used to expect from the laptop.

In this blog, I will tell you about some laptops which are low in budget but good in performance. So be ready to explore the world of high-performance laptops under 30k to 35k.

A Normal Programmer machine must be equipped with a nice RAM and better processor with nice battery backup and that's enough but if your machine is equipped with SSD instead of mechanical Hard Disk then still gives better performance with 4GB RAM

Never Think about the brand if you are a technical person...Think about the hardware inside the machine and local service stations in your area, in case of service.

The terminology you need to know to understand the game of performance…

  • SSD

SSD stands for the Solid-state device and this a new generation storage device which is about 5-10 times faster than HDD because there is not a mechanical component inside it.

  • HDD

HDD stands for Hard Disk Drive and this is a conventional Storage device which is slower than SSD and it contains mechanical disk and motor which is slow and consumes more power but is cheaper than HDD as per the storage volume.

  • RAM

It stands for Random Access Memory and it's one of the fastest memory of the computer and near to the processor. This piece of hardware loads the Operating system application and is able to retrieve as quickly as possible. So more the RAM faster the computer.


This is the heart of the computer, in short, the fastest and more processor in your computer or laptop will lead the machine towards faster performance.


Graphics card is a dedicated processor for the graphics need of your computer or laptop. If your laptop doesn't have a graphics card then all the burden is taken by the processor like processing the graphics and processing the data of the application.So if you have a better processor, it means you have better graphics experience.


You are using a laptop and the basic difference between laptop and desktop is, you can carry your laptop with you and the battery is responsible to keep this laptop alive for several minutes. So better the battery means better laptop experience.
