Indian OEM iBall will soon launch a series of affordable laptops in its motherland. Marketed under the name “CompBook”, the cheapest laptop in this series has a price tag of only $150 and looks like a mid-range ultra-book. As far as design in concerned, CompBook is thin, ultra-light, compact and able to power you through the day thanks to its 8-hour battery life. And speaking about great battery life, here are some of the best laptops running Windows 10 to choose from.

If someone said cheap laptops can’t be good-looking, they were wrong. iBall proves that fashionable things don’t have to be extremely pricey. Its CompBook series includes two laptop models, the first one is equipped with a 11.6-inch HD display, while the second has a slightly mode generous 14-inch display. Both laptops are powered by an Intel Atom Quad Core Z3735F processor capable of reaching up to 1.83 GHz.

iBall has a very interesting motto for its laptops describing the company’s goal:

Open up to the idea of every Indian with a Laptop!

As far as the specs are concerned, both laptops have basically the same configuration:

  • Processor: Intel Atom Quad Core Z3735F
  • Design And Display:HD Screen 1366×768
  • Touch Pad: Multi-Touch functionality
  • Camera: 0.3 MP Camera
  • Memory & Storage: 2GB DDR3 RAM / 32GB built-in storage / Micro SD slot, expandable up to 64GB
  • Speakers: dual Speakers / single 3.5mm combo jack for headphone and microphone
  • Operating System: Windows 10
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n  / Bluetooth Ver. 4.0 / mini HDMI Ver. 1.4a/ 2 x USB 2.0 ports
  • Battery: 10,000mAh Li-Polymer/ 8-hour battery life.

As for the differences between the two devices, they could be resumed as follows:

  • Display size: 11.6-inch vs. 14-inch display
  • Operating system: the 11.6-inch model can be equipped with Windows 10 Pro
  • Dimensions: 29.1×20.3×2.4cm vs. 34.7×23.2x2cm
