Laptops have been getting a very stiff competition from unusual competitors, yes you guessed it right Tablets. Just few years back nobody had imagined that tablet sales would surpass Laptop sales so soon. But what a Laptop can offer even today is still a lot more than what a Tablet can offer you.

A Laptop is still a computer with lot more computation power and if your main focus is producing content and not shelling out lot of money then a cheaper laptop is what you should look for than a tablet. Getting a really good laptop at dirt cheap prices with extra computation power and a good OS is what everyone should look for while buying a cheap laptop.

I have listed down some of the guidelines while buying a cheap laptop. Cheap doesn't mean junk and its essential that your laptop should have below basic ingredients even though its a cheap laptop.

1. Pre Installed OS:
Pre Installed OS always comes in handy, a laptop which comes with pre installed OS always saves a lot for you. If you buy a cheap Laptop without a pre installed OS you might have to shell out extra $70 - $125 to get it working and your cheap Laptop will become not so cheap. Manufacturers have special deals with OS companies and they get them pre installed at a lot cheaper rates than individually installing them.

2. Reputed Brand:
HP, TOSHIBA, Acer, ASUS are all fairly reputed brands which can offer you good cheaper laptops. Reputed brands help a lot in giving post sales services.

3. Better Hardware:
