This is an upgraded version of GT820M with new architecture, lower power consumption, and better performance. Aspire E14 has 5th Generation Intel Core i7 processor which will provide good performance with Turbo Boost technology.

Dell Vostro 5480
Dell Vostro has always been a special budget series of laptop with good specs. It is available with many selections of processors. But in the case of Nepal, we have selected the one with 5th gen Core i5 5200U. This is a U series which is ultra power saving processor. It means you can get robust power when required and save huge power while not required. This Vostro 5480 is coming 4 GB of RAM and 500 GB of the hard disk only. We expect 1 TB normal these days. However, if you need 1 TB HDD, ask the vendor to replace it.
The good thing about the laptop is its graphics card. Here we are getting a step forward graphics which is 2 GB dedicated Nvidia Geforce 830M. This is a good graphics card and it is very nice for mid-level gaming with new titles. In order to enjoy better performance and games, we advise yo to increase the RAM to 8GB. Do ask the shopkeeper to increase RAM or Hard disk while purchasing. This way you get better hardware and it is also covered in 1-year warranty. The current price of Dell Vostro 5480 is Rs 70,000 in the Nepalese market.
Lenovo is also a leading company in the laptop market. Its new G50-80 comes with 5th Gen Core i7 processor. This a great laptop which comes at the price of NRs 70,000. The computer comes with 4 GB of RAM and 1 TB hard drive for storage. You can store a lot of files and games but if you are heavy then you should think of getting 8GB RAM minimum. For the graphics card, this Lenovo G50 has ATI Radeon R5-M230.
The graphics card of this laptop is also entry level. So it is not that much powerful but it will run some first-person shooter games well. However, the processor is pretty fantastic, so performance is definitely great. This device has a 15.6” screen with HD resolution of 1366X768. This is a very standard panel. Inside there is 4 cell battery rated at 41 Watt-Hour. This will be enough to get you a minimum of 4 hrs of life. It is also a market standard battery life.
Decision and Conclusion
All these laptops have 720p webcam, DVD drive and one year warranty from the company. Many companies provide extended and breakage warranty but with a heavy price. You should decide what you want. Many offers are always available like free laptop bags, mouse and antivirus software.
A laptop with pre-installed Genuine Windows will always be about $100 expensive than with Linux or no OS. So pick what you need. You can always install the OEM version of Windows at the cheap price these days. We would definitely pick a cheap model with Ubuntu and format it to install OEM Windows copy.
Looking at all the laptops we find Acer Aspire E14 as the winner. It has a new generation graphics card, new processor, sufficient RAM, and hard disk. It is the best choice in this section. This laptop can do good gaming so definitely it can handle all office work and college work. It can be a good companion for entertainment and work.
