Core i5 and i7 laptops under Tk. 80k: our recommendations

HP 15s-fq5489TU

Price: Tk. 77,000/-

Processor: Intel Core i5-1235U (12M Cache, 1.30 GHz, up to 4.40 GHz)

RAM: 8GB (4+4)

Storage: 512GB SSD

display: 15.6″ FHD (1920×1080)

If you are looking for nothing but the latest processor, the HP 15 has you covered. The new 12th-gen i5 processor is better in performance, power efficiency and offers more value for money than the previous gen. It has performed 26.45% higher in single-core and 39.42% higher in multi-core tests run by PassMark. The 10-core processor, compared to the last gen’s 4-core one, is significantly more powerful and makes a video editor, graphics designer or a 3D artist’s day a lot easier. Other than the processor, there are only good things to talk about in the notebook such as the NVMe SSD, the narrow-bezel display and the abundance of ports.

Price: Tk. 76,000/-

Processor: Intel Core I7-1165G7 (1.2GHz – 2.8GHz, Up To 4.7GHz)

RAM: 8GB DDR4

Storage: 512GB SSD

display: 14.0″ FHD (1920×1080) IPS

For an i7 laptop, we offer you a native candidate which meets all the standard expectations at a reasonable price and gives you a multi-language keyboard with Bangla font. Although we cannot find a 12th gen i7 under Tk. 80,000, the 11th gen i7 is a reliable and robust performer in both CPU and GPU segments. Accompanied by the Iris Xe graphics and an NVMe SSD, daily tasks would be a doddle for this machine. The RAM is upgradeable to 32 GBs. It comes with genuine Windows 11 installed and features an LED-illuminated keyboard.

Price: Tk. 78,000/-

Processor: Intel Core i5-1135G7 (8M Cache, 2.40 GHz up to 4.20 GHz)

GPU: Nvidia GeForce MX450 2GB DDR5

RAM: 8GB DDR4

Storage: 1TB SSD

display: 15.6″ FHD (1920×1080)

We had to scratch our heads for 15 minutes straight to decide on our final candidate, and we are happy to say that the HP 15 deserves this place. The lack of an SSD at this price is a letdown, no question, but it makes up for it with a dedicated, high-performing GPU. The MX450 performs well in gaming with medium to high settings. You should not expect a constant 60 FPS from current titles, but it is a decent little powerhouse. The dedicated 2 GBs of graphics memory will help you with 3D works, video editing and graphic design. The 11th gen i5 and the dual channel 8 GB RAM are all waiting to be pushed to their limits. You might want to add an SSD to this machine to fully harness its power. Although it would push the budget beyond the Tk. 80k boundary, it will be well worth it.
