Desktop PCs are great for most of your needs, but sometimes you might need a PC that’s mobile.

If you’re always on the go, you would probably need a laptop, and today we’re going to show you the best cheap Windows 10 laptops.

What are the best cheap Windows 10 laptops I can buy?

Acer Aspire 5 Slim

  • 15.6 inches full HD display
  • Up to 7.5 hours of battery life
  • AMD Ryzen 3 3200U Mobile Processor
  • Comes with Microsoft 10 S

What you mainly get with this laptop is screen and sound quality thanks to the AMD Ryzen 3 3200U Dual-Core Processor 2.6GHz with Precision Boost and 15.6″ Full HD (1920 x 1080) widescreen LED-backlit IPS display.

Add to that the True Harmony Technology for deeper bass and more volume and you’ll have just the perfect basic laptop.

ASUS L203MA-DS04 VivoBook

  • One year of Microsoft Office 365 included
  • Slim and portable
  • Up to 10 hours of battery life
  • Windows 10 in S mode (though upgradable to Windows 10 Home)

This little thing is designed for portability, and to that end, the manufacturer might have compromised a little on resources.

As such, it boasts an efficient Intel Celeron N4000 processor, 64GB eMMC Flash Storage, and 4GB LPDDR4 RAM.

The device is conveniently compatible with Google Classroom, which you can run on Edge or IE 11.

ASUS VivoBook Flip Thin and Light 2-in-1

  • 11.6 inches HD touchscreen
  • 64GB eMMC storage
  • Durable 360-degree hinge
  • The design seems very delicate

If you’re unpretentious about your laptop, ASUS VivoBook 2-in-1 is a decent choice.

It’s as light and thin as advertised – 11.00 x 7.87 x 0.70 inches, plus 11.6 inches display, and designed for busy persons who are always on-the-go.

The Intel Celeron N3350 2.4GHz processor offers just the necessary power to do your everyday job.

Mind that it doesn’t have Type-A USB ports, only Type-C ones, so you’ll have to also get an adapter.

  • 14-inch non-touch display
  • 1-year Office 365 Personal subscription
  • SuperSpeed USB Type-A and C ports
  • None reported so far

The newest HP laptop model in the Stream series comes with an Intel N4020 2.8 GZh processor, a 14” micro-edge, BrigtView display, and an HP True Vision 720p HD built-in camera.

Multi-connectivity is ensured by 3 USB ports, 1 HDMI 1.4 port and 1 AC Smart pin, plus 1 mic/headphone combo.

Newest Asus 14”

  • 14.0-inch Widescreen LED-backlit
  • Windows 10 Home
  • 3.0 USB Type-A and C, plus USB 2.0 ports
  • Might be too slow

The is one example of a budget laptop that comes with Windows 10 Home out of the box, unlike the previous options, so you don’t have to spend time replacing Windows 10 S.

It has a  7th Gen Dual-Core AMD A6-9225 2.6GHz Processor (up to 3.0GHz), more than some previous recommendations, yet some users mentioned that it was too slow for them.
