iBall launches CompBook, a cheap ultra-portable Windows 10 laptop for $150
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.

Both laptops are powered by an Intel Atom Quad Core Z3735F processor capable of reaching up to 1.83 GHz.
