The budget laptop segment is getting hotter with every passing day and Micromax wants to have the largest chunk of the pie. A few months back, the company unveiled a budget laptop with basic features and it came with a price tag of around Rs. 10000. But, the latest laptop from the company is the Micromax Alpha, which comes with decent specifications set and budget pricing as well.
Unlike other budget laptops, the Micromax Alpha comes with a 15.6-inch display that has a resolution of 1366 x 768. The bezels are not too wide and the laptop is good to look at. It has a full sized keyboard and it has a numeric keypad as well. The company says that the laptop comes with dual speakers, which aren’t expected to be too good.
Coming to the specifications, the laptop is powered by an Intel Core i3 processor clocked at 1.6 Ghz and has integrated Intel HD Graphics 5500 GPU. It is a great upgrade from the Intel Atom processor in the previously launched budget laptops from the company. The Micromax Alpha has 6 GB of RAM along with 500 GB hard drive, which can be further increased to 1 TB.
The machine runs on Windows 10 OS and also has an HD webcam along with a headphone jack and a microphone jack. The laptop is pretty rich in connectivity features and comes with 4 USB ports, two of which are USB 3.0 compliant. It has a 4-cell battery which is being promised to last for about 4.45 hours. The laptop has been priced at Rs. 26990 and is available exclusively from Flipkart.
