Best Budget i7 Laptops Under 600

Best Budget i7 Laptops Under 600 –  We hope this article has been helpful! We tried to include a variety of good laptops under $600 so that you can pick the most suitable one for your needs. If you’re still contemplating your options, these are our final recommendations:


1.HP Pavilion x360

Pros & Cons

The Pavilion x360 15 starts at $699.99 with a 15.6-inch touch screen with pitiful 1,366-by-768-pixel resolution. Our test unit, fortunately, featured a 1,920-by-1,080 touch panel, as well as a Core i3-1125G4 processor with Intel UHD integrated graphics, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB NVMe solid-state drive. Options range from Core i5 and Core i7 processors to 12GB or 16GB of memory and SSDs up to 1TB.

Bluetooth and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are standard (Wi-Fi 6 is $10 extra), as are Windows 10 Home and a stylus pen matching the Pavilion’s silver color scheme. There’s neither a fingerprint reader nor a face-recognition webcam, so you’ll be typing passwords instead of using Windows Hello, but the keyboard is backlit, which is not always true of economy models.

2.Microsoft Surface Go 2

Pros & Cons

Microsoft has been making Windows tablets for many years under the Surface brand. The Surface Go 2 follows the same basic design principles of many of the preceding Surface models, including the latest, the Surface Pro 7. It’s a rectangular tablet that measures 0.33 by 9.7 by 6.9 inches (HWD) and weighs 1.2 pounds.

The entire front of the device is a 10.5-inch touch screen, and the ports, the power button, and a volume rocker are scattered around the edges. While you can hold the Surface Go 2 in two hands with ease, a nifty integrated kickstand at the back pops out for propping up the tablet on a flat surface.

3.Lenovo IdeaPad

Pros & Cons

The IdeaPad 1 14 is rather bland-looking compared with the MSI Modern 14, and it’s a bit bigger too, despite having the same-size screen. The IdeaPad measures 0.78 by 12.9 by 9.25 inches (HWD) and weighs 3.1 pounds, compared with 0.7 by 12.6 by 8.6 inches and 2.8 pounds for the MSI. The size difference is especially noticeable in the display bezels. They’re chunky strips of black plastic on the IdeaPad 1 14, while the Modern 14’s slimmer bezels help match its aesthetic to its name.

But while the IdeaPad 1 14 might not be as modern-looking as some of its competitors, neither is it ugly. Our review unit is gray, which is vaguely sleek without being boring. This is not a svelte premium ultraportable like the Dell XPS 13, nor is it a corporate-chic laptop like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon. But after using it intermittently for a few days around the house, I found that it certainly looks like it belongs on your coffee table or kitchen, and probably would do just as well in a fluorescent-lit classroom.

4.ASUS VivoBook 15

Pros & Cons

The Asus VivoBook 15 is a budget laptop we had high hopes for. Budget laptops, as you might well know, often seem like they’re too good to be true. The idea that you can get enough performance to carry you through a few years at an exceptionally reasonable price is quite enticing. But often, when you’re paying less, you’re getting less, too.

In the case of the latest refresh of the Asus VivoBook 15, you’re paying for less performance and less battery life and opting for a less vibrant display. In exchange, you get numerous ports, a thin chassis, and a nearly edge-to-edge widescreen display, but this Asus VivoBook 15 review will show how the result is merely a reminder of the compromises one has to make to save money.

5.Dell Inspiron 15

Pros & Cons

Build quality is very consistent, too. The wrist-rest barely budges, the screen feels sturdy, and the underside has a little give – but all the components inside are well protected. We wouldn’t really have a problem with slinging the Dell Inspiron 15 inside a backpack and expecting it to survive our travels. You’ll only need to use a protective sleeve if you’re concerned about aesthetic damage.

This isn’t a particularly expensive notebook, though, so don’t expect metal draped over every surface. The underside of the base is only covered in metal on areas where it’ll be visible, and the keyboard, wrist-rest and screen bezel are all finished with underwhelming matte black plastic.


Best Budget i7 Laptops Under 600 – Laptops have become vital at a time when working remotely, attending Zoom meetings, and trying to stay connected with loved ones on social media is far more commonplace than ever before. In 2021, anyone with a tight budget might think there is no such thing as an affordable laptop, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.
