Comparison: What is the best cheap laptop of 2019?

one. Acer Swift 1

Acer Swift 1

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

In this sense, few things can be criticized for its metal housing – usually plastic on other similar devices -, its rugged keyboard and trackpad or to 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 minimum storage capacity make the Swift 1 suitable only for tasks such as word processing, web browsing or watching videos on 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

two. HP 250 G5

HP 250 G5

Although it does not stand out for its innovative design – there is nothing ostentatious or especially striking in it -, there is no doubt that the HP 250 G5 notebook is one of the models with the best value for money in the current market.

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 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 not be able to consider cheap anymore.

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