What makes a laptop the best laptop under 1.5 lakh? That is the question.
Most blog posts point out laptops and say that this is the best, but the thing is the best laptop depends on the user. If you are someone who goes to the office, watches movies and does no gaming or content creation, then a MacBook would be perfect for you. And a gaming laptop makes zero sense.

Best Gaming Laptop Under 1.5 LakhsBuy from Amazon
This laptop ticks a lot of boxes. A real lot of boxes. The bezel-less display, the pure white colour, the fingerprint sensor and all of it make the MSI laptop look gorgeous.
But we are not here to speak about beauty. The laptop is powered by an Intel Core i7-13700H with a top speed of 5GHz. The processor is a 13th-generation processor and we can't help but wonder how so much power was packed at this price.
The graphics card is an RTX 4070 card. It is the latest offering from Nvidia and offers performance that makes you want to never leave the laptop alone. This is a real value-for-money laptop. Top-notch offerings everywhere.
With 32GB (16GBx2) RAM and a 1TB NVMe SSD storage, this provides everything a gamer wants.
The keyboard is a SteelSeries keyboard with per-key RGB lighting. This keyboard is gorgeous to look at as well as to type on.
Apple MacBook Pro (2022)
Best Laptop for Software DevelopersBuy from Amazon
I don't want to start a debate as to if software developers should use a Mac or Ubuntu or Windows (ugh), but with the Unix system, this is perfect for programming. You don't have to worry much and it is easy to get things done.
The laptop is powered by the M2 chip, which is a proprietary chip by Apple and has a great performance advantage over the Intel chips which they used to use. The Macbook Pro is really powerful and can handle the building and bundling of software. Also, if you want to develop apps for iOS devices, a Mac is a must.
The display is a tad bit small at just 13.3". This is too small and to be honest, doesn't provide enough room to develop software. I would always recommend you invest in an external monitor.
The laptop comes with a Retina display which is always a joy to work on or to watch movies on. It also has a touch bar which changes the buttons as required.
With 8GB RAM and 512GB of storage, the laptop comes with enough permanent and temporary storage. The backlit keyboard is also nice to type on thanks to the scissor mechanism. Would strongly recommend getting one of these.
MacBook Air (2022)
Best Laptop for Office useBuy from Amazon
I have an older version of this (2021) and am typing on it and I do regret not waiting for this laptop. The new Air just looks adorable. The previous design was a tapered design which I had always hated. But this new laptop looks gorgeous, especially with the notch.
The laptop has a liquid retina display which has excellent resolution and makes the colours pop. The display is a bit small but the quality of the display more than makes up for it.
The Air has an M2 chip similar to the Pro, but this is a bit toned down so that it can handle the heat inside. The storage in the system is a bit low at just 256GB. But most of the data like images can be synced on the cloud so this shouldn't be a big problem. No component of the Air can be upgraded.
The camera in the laptop is a 1080p Face Time camera which provides high-quality images for video calls.
