In the recent past, Micromax has proved to be a very versatile brand in India. Besides their successful smartphone business, Micromax forayed into consumer electronics segment with their LED TV range, and also launched a few laptops in the sub Rs. 20,000 range. Expanding their laptop range, Micromax today announced the Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160, which is priced at a really great price.
The laptop, first of all, looks like a real laptop, and doesn’t compromise on the looks. The black finish gives it a decent look, and doesn’t seem to be a budget laptop. It sports a 11.6-inch display, and supports a resolution of 1366 x 768. Not to forget, the display is touch enabled and is of IPS variety.
It runs on a quad-core Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.33 GHz, and it can be burst up to 1.86 GHz. The Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 sports a RAM capacity of 2 GB, and has an internal storage of 32 GB. About 19 GB would be free after OS installation. The internal memory can be expanded up to 64 GB via a microSD card. The storage space should be enough for basic usage, and not for power usage.
Like said above, it is a full-fledged laptop, and comes with a full QWERTY keyboard along with a trackpad for controlling the cursor movement. The laptop runs on the latest Windows 10 OS, and will receive all the latest update as and when they are made available by Microsoft. The Windows 10 OS comes with a lot of new features and improved performance, compared to its predecessors.
A laptop is primarily for portable computing, and its weight and dimensions play an important role in determining that. It is just 18 mm thick, and weighs about 1.13 kg, which is quite good. the battery capacity of 4100 mah keeps the laptop running for about 10 hours. The laptop features a bunch of connectivity features, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 2 x USB 2.0, one HDMI port, and an Ethernet port, making it a perfect laptop. Besides these, it also comes with a 3.5 mm headphone port and has dual speakers too.
The Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 seems to be a great laptop for a price of just Rs. 10499, at least on paper. You can expect a good level of performance and it should be good for basic tasks. It is exclusively available from Amazon.in and you can grab one from there.
