5 Best Laptops to buy in India under Rs 20000

An uncle told me, about 10 years ago, that computers are the future. There is no perfect substitute for human minds except for the computers. How rightly so! Today computers have become such an important part of our lives, that it is nearly impossible to imagine life without a computer. Whether it be the NASA scientists launching Mars rover into the space, or a lawyer researching for their clients, or gamer looking for a perfect past time, computers have usurped the traditional form of communication or entertainment and turned everything around on its head! The recent Digital India initiative by PM Modi stands as the perfect proof for this hypothesis.
