Top 5 4th Generation Intel Core i5 Laptops Under Rs. 40,000

When you’re looking to buy a new laptop, Rs. 40,000 or so is the sweet spot that gets you that right balance between performance and affordability. We would recommend getting an Intel Core i5 processor, the midrange offering from the chip giant, which ensures that you have enough power for most daily tasks and even some light gaming. We’ve previously documented the Top 5 3rd Generation Intel Core i5 Laptops under Rs. 40,000, which have now become much more affordable. The new Haswell microarchitecture is very mobile focused, and brings with it better power efficiency because of the 22nm manufacturing process and better integrated graphics solutions. All the laptops below don’t include an operating system because it would increase costs, and feature a 15.6 inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768, which is quite decent. So without further ado, here’s our picks for the best 4th Generation Intel Core i5 laptops under Rs. 40,000!
