Comparison: What is the best cheap laptop of 2019?


1. Acer Swift 1
Acer Swift 1
PVP: $ 353
Judging only its external appearance, it is hard to believe that the Acer Swift 1 costs less than € 350. In fact, this model is undoubtedly the most stylish Windows 10 laptop with the best finishes that we can find in the market at this price.

In this sense, few things can be blamed on its metal casing - usually plastic on other similar devices -, its rugged keyboard and trackpad or its 13.3-inch IPS screen and Full HD resolution.

However, it does not stand out especially for its performance. Its simple CPU unit and its minimal storage capacity make the Swift 1 suitable only for tasks such as word processing, surfing the web or watching videos in streaming.

We have also tested the autonomy of the battery and, although the results are not spectacular, it is enough for a full day of work: in our case, it lasts almost 8 hours.

Basic specifications


  • Dimensions: 339,40 x 234,90 x 17,90 mm
  • Screen: 14 inches
  • Weight: 1.6 kg
  • Battery: Up to 8 hours
  • Processor: Intel Celeron N3060 Dual Core 1.6 GHz
  • RAM memory: 4 GB
  • Storage: 64 GB


2. HP 250 G5
HP 250 G5
RRP: $ 399
Although it does not stand out for its innovative design - there is nothing ostentatious or especially striking about it - there is no doubt that the HP 250 G5 laptop is one of the models with the best value for money on the market today.

For just over € 500, you will take home a device with a 256 GB SSD and 8 GB of RAM. If you can afford it, it is advisable to invest a little more money to get a superior model with an Intel Core i5 processor.

Now, if you want a high quality screen, you will have no choice but to spend a considerably larger amount and bet on a device that we might no longer consider "cheap".

In this sense, then, the panel of the 250 G5 is very practical, but the poor sharpness of its colors and contrast make this HP laptop is not the best for entertainment.

Basic specifications


  • Dimensions: 384,30 x 254,60 x 24,30 mm
  • Display: 15.6 inches
  • Weight: 1.96 kg
  • Battery: Up to 8 hours
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-5005U
  • RAM memory: 8 GB
  • Storage: 256 GB


3. Lenovo Ideapad 320S
Lenovo Ideapad 320S
It is hard to find a laptop with Windows 10 more tempting and attractive than the Lenovo Ideapad 320S. Its modern design and its surprising portability make this the best companion to go to work in a cafeteria or a coworking space.

In addition, this laptop does not disappoint in terms of performance and we celebrate that this time the Windows 10 works so well with a Pentium processor. The results are very close to that of models with Intel Core processors.

Now, the truth is that you notice the shortcomings of the Pentium processor when editing videos, using Photoshop or producing music. In these cases, we suggest always betting on a laptop with Intel Core.

We have also been very disappointed with the quality of your screen. The TN panel that uses this model is not enough to enjoy 100 percent of the content of platforms such as Netflix, something that can be done in laptops with IPS monitors.

Basic specifications


  • Dimensions: 378 x 260 x 22,90 mm
  • Display: 15.6 inches
  • Weight: 2.2 kg
  • Battery: Up to 5 hours
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 up to 8th generation
  • RAM memory: from 4 GB

4. Chuwi's HeroBook
Chuwi's HeroBook
RRP: $ 199.99
Chuwi is a brand known for offering quality laptops for very little money. An example of this is the HeroBook, a notebook that catches our attention due to its excellent quality-price ratio.

For less than € 200 we bring a device with performance and specifications more than acceptable and excellent battery life (up to 9 hours).

The truth is that the screen is not the best and that its processor can not be compared to the newer and more expensive models of laptops, but its price makes us overlook these details.

If you are looking for a computer that works well, that can be used to surf the Internet, write and watch videos from time to time and, if you also do not want to spend a lot of money, then the HeroBook may be your ideal purchase option.

Basic specifications

Dimensions:
  • Display: 14.1 inches
  • Weight: 1.4 Kg
  • Battery: Up to 9 hours
  • Processor: Intel Atom x5-E8000 4-core
  • RAM memory: 4 GB
  • Storage: 64 GBStorage: from 128 GB




5. Jumper EZBook 3 Pro
Jumper EZBook 3 Pro
Retail Price: $ 283.29
The Jumper EZBook 3 Pro laptop is also a good option if we have little budget, although we will have to settle for a longer boot time than other similar models such as Chuwi's LapBook 14.1.

With an Apollo Lake N3450 processor and 6 GB of RAM, this laptop is capable of performing basic computer tasks. It even supports very demanding videogames, but we can not expect anything else.

In addition, the EZBook 3 Pro includes a storage capacity of only 64 GB, which may be insufficient for some. It is true that you can always change the hard drive afterwards or opt for solutions in the cloud or external memories.

In contrast, the size of the computer is the ideal balance between an easily transportable device, a screen that will be easy to navigate and a keyboard large enough and comfortable to manipulate.

Basic specifications

  • Dimensions: 315 x 209 x 15 mm
  • Display: 13.3 inches
  • Weight: 1.4 kg
  • Battery: Up to 8 hours
  • Processor: Intel Apollo Lake N3450 Quad Core 1.1GHz
  • RAM memory: 6 GB
  • Storage: 64 GB
6. Chuwi LapBook 14.1
Chuwi LapBook 14.1
Retail Price: $ 290.42
The LapBook 14.1 of the Asian Chuwi is not the fastest laptop you can buy today in the market, but it is certainly capable of performing basic tasks and doing it more effectively than most cheap computers with Windows 10.

The boot time is incredibly fast and in this aspect is far above laptops of its same range, as the EZBook 3 Pro Jumper, and even others much more expensive.

In its standard model, the 14.1-inch LapBook has a storage capacity of 64GB, of which you can use half. While it is true that you can increase the space easily with a 128GB microSD.

Although the touchpad leaves a lot to be desired and it is better to buy a separate mouse, it is true that the lightness, the autonomy of the battery, the keyboard and the Full HD screen are some of the incentives to buy this laptop.

Basic specifications

  • Dimensions: 329.20 x 220.50 x 20.50 mm
  • Display: 14.1 inches
  • Weight: 1.74 kg
  • Battery: Up to 6 hours
  • Processor: Intel Celeron N3450 Quad Core 1.1 GHz
  • RAM memory: 8 GB
  • Storage: 128 GB
