    Hello friends,

    I was planning to get a laptop at home for my blogging and article writing. A laptop with Windows 8 and 2GB RAM priced under 40k. Suggest me a laptop with comfortable typing as I need it for article writing. Please mention a good company laptop which can work well for at least 5 years.

    Most of the laptops in range of 30-40k will suffice your requirement. I would personally suggest to go with either Sony Vaio or Lenovo laptops.
    I have felt the luxury of battery with Sony Vaio, and durability with Lenovo laptops.

    Moreover, you should go with laptop with small screen for easy portability.

    You may go with:
    Lenovo Essential G400s (59-383679)
    Laptop (3rd Gen Ci3/ 4GB/ 500GB/ Win8/ 2GB Graph/ Touch)
    14 inch screen size.

    Hope this helps.

    If your sole intention to buy a laptop is to write articles and similar stuff, I would suggest you to buy a Chromebook instead. They are perfect for everyday use and do not cost as much as well.

    Chromebooks are Google's ultra-light notebooks that come with Google's own OS pre-installed. They may be manufactured by various brands but adhere to strict Google specifications.

    Chromebooks come with the latest processors, SSDs for faster boot up times and generally decent RAM. Do check them out from various e-commerce websites as sometimes there are great promotions going on for these notebooks.

    I hope this helps!

    One cannot usually limit his or her laptop to a single purpose. If you are looking for a writer's laptop with preloaded Windows 8 and inbuilt 2GB RAM, surely your intention is not confined to writing articles only but with time you would like to play games and much more on it. Isn't it?

    Even a laptop with minimum configuration is good for article writing purpose and would last for couple of years.

    But here are some top laptops for writers under your desired configuration and price.

    1. HP Pavilion series laptops have a good battery life. In short they are excellent for article writing and other purposes as well.

    2. Ultrabooks house a good battery life too which is great for a writer. I too have an Ultrabook under 50K and its battery backup can allow me to write continuously for 6 hrs.

    Toshiba Portege z835 Ultrabook is excellent and has a battery life of 9 hrs. On the other hand, Lenovo IdeaPad U300s allows a nonstop break for 8 hrs.

    3. MacBooks especially MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are also affordable units.

    4. Also, Chromebooks are quick, simple and focused for such a purpose. Acer 720 Chromebook is suggestible.

    My recommendation is simple, go for laptop with Intel Core i3 processor. If you go for this processor you will get good RAM, storage, connectivity by default. As processor is responsible for support of hardware you must show more importance.

    Now only thing left is build quality and keyboard. There are laptops with plastic, chrome plated and metal. Depending on the material used the cost increases. For keyboard check whether the arrow keys are well-spaced. I have seen some laptops that have very tiny keyboards. For blogging and article writing you might use arrow keys frequently. So make sure that the keys are well-spaced.

    If you are planning to buy Chromebook consider that there is less amount of internal storage and you need 24/7 internet connectivity. The OS is fully dependent on internet. I personally feel it is a bad idea to buy Chromebook. You can do few tasks offline using Chromebook. It doesn't even have file manager to store files. You need use Google Drive for storing data.

    Choose the brand which is your favorite. Try to get information about the laptop you plan to buy from the internet. You can also use YouTube to watch reviews of the laptop.
