    Top 5 WFH laptops between Rs. 50000 to Rs. 1 Lakh: With the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 pandemic on the rise, a lockdown situation seems imminent and that means we could be all getting to a WFH situation again. This also means you could be needing a new laptop for your work and if you have a budget of less than 1 lakh, you are reading the right story.

    In 2022, you can get great laptops across various price segments from several brands. Towards the 1 lakh-mark, you can invest in a MacBook Air. For those having a lower budget, there are some great laptop deals from Lenovo, Dell, HP and Asus. You can choose from several processor options, notebook genres, OS, and colours.

    How to choose your WFH laptop under 1 lakh?

    - Battery life is a key concern with your WFH laptop. Hence, check for battery capacities higher than 60Wh, and a choice of efficient processor.

    - Choosing the right processor is important to get the most out of your laptop. You should avoid an underpowered processor but not choose an overpowered processor that chews through your battery.

    - Having a nice high-resolution display with at least FHD resolution is important in 2022 to have a good work experience.

    - A decent webcam and proper set of microphones are necessary to get done with meetings and video calls.

    - Your laptop needs to have a couple of necessary ports, i.e., USB-A ports, an HDMI port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an SD card slot.

    - A set of good speakers is not as easily available in the sub- 1 lakh segment but you should check for wattage and number of speakers.
