Windows laptop or Chromebook?
So the first thing about which you need to decide is whether you should buy a Windows laptop or Chromebook? In short I will tell you a brief difference between the windows laptop and the Chromebook.
Windows OS is the most widely used operating system but Chrome OS is new so getting accustomed to it will take time. Some of the more popular software is not available yet on chrome OS yet, like MS office .
Windows OS is best if you want to perform basic tasks like listening music, watching videos, editing documents and surfing the internet and so on. But if all of your work is to be done on internet then no operating system can beat chrome OS. Chrome workspaces are a light weight, fast and battery efficient cloud based OS by Google. Thus if a purely internet based workflow is all you require a Chromebook might be all you need.
In this review we will cover the best windows laptops under $200. If you want to buy a Chromebook, then understand the differences in each product and decide what suites your needs. We have also added links in the article to the best current prices so if you see a product you like don't hesitate!
1. HP 14-an013nr 14-inch
For a Budget of 200$ our top pick is the HP 14-an013nr 14-inch. This is the only laptop with Full HD in this list, meaning you will get a 1920x1080, 14 inch screen. It comes with an AMD Quad Core E2-7110 CPU so not designed for overly stressing tasks.
With a 32 GB SSD and 4 GB RAM can handle your daily tasks easily. Windows 10 is pre installed and battery backup is decent up to 5 hours.
Another Plus about this laptop is that it comes with an entry level Radeon R2 graphics card which means you can play SIMS 4, counter strike, NFS Most Wanted in the Lowest settings.
As per our research this is the best laptop under this budget and without wasting your time searching here and there, buy this laptop without any hassle.
2. HP Stream PC 11
The next machine is also from the reliable brand of HP laptop, namely the HP Stream PC 11.
It Comes with Windows 10, 4GB RAM, 32 GB SSD and best part is a free one year subscription of office 365 with 1 TB One Drive cloud space .
It has a 11. 6 inch anti glare display and weighs only 2. 57 pounds, 1 pound less then our previous entry.
On the negative side it's entry level processor will struggle with more intensive tasks but as the name suggests this laptop is designed for streaming and working online and can easily cope up with moderate usage.
If you don’t want HP laptop or need a 64 GB SSD space in the Price range, then consider the next product from the Lenovo line.
3. Lenovo N22
The Lenovo N22 packs a 64 GB ROM and comes with Windows 10 Pro edition. The rest of the specifications are same as the previous entry however it does have a water resistant keyboard.
On the negative side if you are a heavy user then its entry level processor will struggle. Buy this if you need more local disk space and water resistant keyboard.
Not much to make this Laptop stand out from the others in this bracket but it is certainly not the worst, meaning it will still provide a solid workspace for those with minimal requirements.
4. ASUS E200HA
Next entry is from ASUS. The ASUS E200HA has a light design and perfect for the users who are constantly on the go.
It weighs only 2. 2 pounds and offers great battery backup of 13 hours with 2 cell polymer battery. Another USP is an Intel Cherry Trail Quad-Core Z8300 Processor.
Ensure you buy the 4GB RAM variant of this model. Consider this if you want laptop with great battery backup and lesser weight.
This Laptop packs quite the punch and should certainly be considered as a top buy in its bracket!
5. Dell Inspiron i3 162
Our last entry is the Dell Inspiron i3 162.
Don’t let the i3 fool you, as in fact it comes with a poor Intel celeron processor that isn't much to write home about.
This laptop does not offer anything radical, so why did we include this in our list? Simply because it has a brand tag “DELL“.
On the negative side this laptop has a 32 GB eMMC flash memory which is slower when compared to SSD which is the gold standard these days.
Without being too brunt, buy this only if you're a hardcore Dell fan.
