I3 processor is recommended for an ideal and inbudget laptops for normal work

But if you want laptop for gaming or editing or using heavy softwares you should go for atleast I5 or I7.

 

Screen

Make sure the laptop has a glossy screen and resolution.The reason behind this is that backlighting on the screen is less and LCD produces a better contrast than LED.

While purchasing laptop you should check its resolution because a good resolution results in good videos and image quality.

Graphics

If you are someone who requires alot of graphics work, then go for a MacBook. The laptop will cost you around Rs 50,000 onwards (Price of MacBook from India).

If you consider buying some cheap laptop but the issue with these are that the laptop case will become heavy. So try and go for a laptop that does not come with a case.

So You should make sure you purchase laptop according to your needs in terms of graphic card.

Display

One of the main things for a new laptop buyers is the display. Screen size is another important parameter. The size of the screen should be sufficient to fit on the lap of the person who is going to use it. A 14inch screen is recommended as a good size for laptop screen.

So don’t compromise on this.

Weight and design

The weight is always a factor when looking for a laptop. Some prefer the light laptop because it is more convenient. It is advised to check out if it is easy to carry around, and if it does not have a large display screen. It can also be helpful to look at reviews to know what other people are saying about a product so you can make an informed choice.

 

RAM

Random access Memory is also an important feature while purchasing laptop.

You should atleast go for 4 gb or above ram and if possible make sure laptop can be upgraded further in future and RAM can be increased if needed.

 

Hard disk

We recomend you to purchase SSD instead of hard disk,It is little costly in comparison to hard disk but you will not regret as it will make your laptop process fast.And if you are purchasing harddisk  RPM of hard disk should be higher than normal.

In future if you need to upgrade your hard disk, you can always upgrade it.

Battery

Battery backup is also the main factor and you should check if the laptop you are purchasing have good battery backup.And make decision according to the time and work you are going to spend on laptop.
