Hi,

I am planning a trip to India for a few months. I would like to buy a small budget laptop, but not sure if I should buy it in the UK or India. I could buy one online in the UK for around 200. Would India sell them much cheaper?

I'm not bothered about having great specs or brand, just enough for basic computer use (Word, Excel, Web surfing).

Thanks

That's about Rs.20,000. Yes, you can get an Asus Pentium dual core with 2gb ram and 15.6 in screen in Delhi for that much.

A few things to ponder.

How long do you wish to keep the laptop?

Is it only for the India trip?

Would a tablet (say Asus or Nexus) do the job?

What about warranty and service issues?

Cheers

Big H... We have online shopping! You can see some Indian prices for yourself at, eg, flipkart and Amazon.in, and make direct comparisons with the specific models that interest you.

over-the-physical-counter prices may be a little higher. Or not!




ps... Are we related? I see you are one of the London Hs!
