The second round of Amazon.in’s Great Indian Festival sale has begun and Prime members get early access, just like the last time. If you’re in the market for a budget laptop, now is a great time to surf the deals that this popular e-retailer is offering this time around. Note that with a budget laptop, you may not be able to multitask very comfortably as they come with limited RAM and a slow-spinning hard drive. Some models may not come with a bundled operating system either. With those essential messages out of the way, let’s take a look at what Amazon.in has to offer:
Lenovo IdeaPad 330 (Buy it here)
The IdeaPad S145 may have succeeded the IdeaPad 330 from last year but there’s no reason not to consider it while purchasing a budget laptop.

Weighing in at 2.2 kilogrammes, this IdeaPad 330 does not come with Windows 10 pre-installed, giving you the option to install a Linux distro, if that’s what you like.
