Best Budget Dell Laptops Under 400

Best Budget Dell Laptops Under 400 – As stated, here are our 5 best laptops under $400, led by the Aspire 5 and followed by brands like Dell, HP, Asus, and more.

Keep in mind that some models are not compatible with certain games like we mentioned before. Hence, choose your pick accordingly.


1.Lenovo IdeaPad 3

It has 8GB of memory, while some rock-bottom budget laptops have an inadequate 4GB. And not long ago, such an economy model would have had a lowly 1,366-by-768-pixel display instead of the IdeaPad’s full HD (1,920 by 1,080) resolution. Otherwise, though, this 15.6-inch slab of silver-gray plastic is hard to get excited about.

It will suffice for browsing, email, and homework, but its performance is tepid, and it lacks basic comforts ranging from a backlit keyboard to a USB Type-C port, seen in some other economy models we’ve tested in recent weeks. One, the Asus VivoBook 15 (F512JA), is a better 15-inch machine for the same price, while the MSI Modern 14 is an Editors’ Choice winner if you want to go a little smaller. Of course, upping your budget to $600 or $700 will get you a much more enjoyable notebook.

2.Acer Chromebook 514

Priced higher than a fan-fave and PCMag Editors’ Choice winner from Acer, the Acer Chromebook 14, it brings to the table improved portability, a sleek aluminum design, and the option for touch-input tech. Once you add a backlit keyboard and long battery life to the mix, it becomes a tempting alternative to budget notebook PCs in its price range.

Despite its Intel Pentium processor, this Acer feels snappy enough for most undemanding use thanks to Google’s lean Chrome OS. Provided that the OS meets your functional needs, the Chromebook 514 provides a first-rate way to get things done without spending a ton. We’re taking our Editors’ Choice garland for consumer Chromebooks from the 14 and hanging it on the 514.

3.ASUS Chromebook Flip

The Asus Chromebook Flip C434 is comfortably one of the best Chromebooks you can buy at the moment, and there are several reasons why: it’s well designed and built, it gives you a versatile 2-in-1 form factor, and you get a lot of value in return for your money too.

How much you’ll have to spend on the Flip C434 depends on the configuration that you go for, but the model that we reviewed is right in the Chromebook mid-range: above the ultra-budget laptops but still significantly cheaper than the premium options out there

4.Acer Aspire 5

There are two types of laptops I’ve come to expect from Acer: Standout premium models like the crazy Swift 7 ultraportable and Predator Triton 900, and mainstream laptops that are impossibly good deals — like last year’s Predator Helios 300 and this year’s Acer Aspire 5.

For more than a year, Acer’s Aspire E 15 was my go-to pick for anyone who just needed a quick, reliable laptop for general use around the home. Sadly, that model is getting harder to find, but the Aspire 5 is an excellent alternative that’s thinner, lighter and still an impossibly good deal.

5.Samsung Chromebook 4

Looked at alongside the Samsung Chromebook 4+ we recently reviewed, the Samsung Chromebook 4, with no plus sign, is really minus 4—minus 4 inches, that is. It’s a compact Chromebook with an 11.6-inch screen versus a big 15.6-inch panel in the style of a desktop replacement.

Both are bare-bones economy systems, but this Chromebook  is a bit more successful than its bigger sibling. Besides being easier to carry, it has better battery life, and its low screen quality is less noticeable at the smaller size. It’s not a delight, but it’s a decent grab-and-go laptop if you’re a student or simply have a strict budget.


Best Budget Dell Laptops Under 400 – A sub-$400 price range doesn’t allow you to be expressive with the laptop purchases. Instead, you need to prioritize your requirements and get hold of laptops that offer the most value for money. Going under 400 dollars means that you would be concentrating on budget laptops, which is a keenly contested arena, comprising ultraportableChromebooks, and durable gadgets.
