Additionally, SSD storage, which increases the costs of your manufacturer; will usually associate with laptops in the 50,000 INR and above price segments.

6: Pain: Laptops have a long rap sheet when it comes to being the culprit for a lot of aches and pains. From neck pain to lower back pain, to pain in the chest area muscles, wrists, and shoulders; they’re finding new laptop weight-induced pain by the day. The cost for treating all of these aches and pains is usually pretty high; not to mention the fact that this kind of ailment damages the quality of one’s life.
