Micromax had launched 3 lapbook series notebooks in India for within 14000 to 19000 Rs. The devices are available for purchase on Snapdeal, Flipkart as well as Amazon. If you’re looking for something cheaper, check out the below details of Canvas Lapbook L1160.
The lapbook L1160 is one of the latest and cheapest laptops in India, priced at just 10450 Rupees. It’s cheaper than Chromebooks and the HP Stream 14 laptop. It doesn’t have very compelling hardware features nor it is suitable for playing games, but for students and people who’re into stock trading or writing profession, the Micromax L1160 is a very good option to consider.
Micromax has equipped the Canvas L1160 with a 4100 mAh battery. Charge the netbook once and it will be ready for use for up to 600 minutes, claims Micromax.
L1160 sails on MS Windows 10 OS. Microsoft has no plans to retire the Win 10 operating system soon. It will be rolling out updates for up to 10 years. Thus, the OS in this netbook will always be new.
Unfortunately, complex software packages like Photoshop, Lightroom, Maya, etc will take ages to run on this device. Even if the O.S has managed to open its Main Window, you might not be pleased to use the application because there’s just 2GB of RAM on this machine.
For students, L1160 is a perfect device to create presentations, read articles on Wikipedia, Khan Academy, check emails and explore social networking portals like Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, etc.
This Micromax laptop is suitable for running basic software like MS office suite, Libre Office, Tally, etc. Even though modern web browsers like Firefox and Google Chrome are memory hogging applications, L1160 should be able to run them without reporting any errors. However, you should be careful while opening multiple websites in different tabs. RAM usage will increase each time you open a new web page.
The storage capacity of Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 is 32GB. As there are internet connectivity options in the form of Ethernet port, USB port for connecting 4G and 3G dongles and WiFi, you can use cloud storage platforms to save your data. Google Drive and MS One Drive offer 1+ GB free space. Thus, they are two good options to start with.
Because the lapbook is compact, it is better than a low-end PC. You can carry it in a small bag or backpack anywhere you go. L1160 comes with a 4 thread quad-core Atom series Z3735F processor which is normally found in low-end or mid-range Windows mobile phones. The weight is below 1.2 kilograms.
This device has an HD 11.6 inches display and an HDMI port to connect the notebook to LED TVs. As the resolution is good, watching videos and movies will be a good experience. The screen is not detachable.
Micromax Canvas L1160 is listed on Amazon India website for around 10000 Rs with cash on delivery and EMI options of payments.
