Midrange laptops are always the most preferred for  normal home use and even by professionals as they offer most of the latest hardware specifications without putting too much burden on the pocket. While some of them are exclusively meant for home use with bigger displays and optical disk drives, others have features which make them suitable for busy professionals. Below are the 5 best laptops in India:

HP ENVY Sleekbook 4-1105tx (Rs. 59,775)

Priced at the higher side  of the segment, the HP ENVY Sleekbook 4-1105tx is a perfect laptop for professionals and people who want laptops with high end configuration for home use.

The laptop runs on the Windows 8 (64 bit) OS and has a Hard Drive of 500 GB.
