Budget laptop: eMachines eMD443-E352g50Mikk

We are fond of AMD Fusion powered laptops, more specifically those powered by the AMD E-350 processor because they combines low cost with decent processor and graphics performance. If you are looking for a laptop to do word processing, preparing spreadsheets and presentations, browse the web and viewing HD movies and videos, a AMD Fusion E-350 laptop is more than sufficient for those tasks. It can even do some 3D gaming. eMachines 14-inch eMD443-E352g50Mikk is priced at just Php17,500, without a operating system. Adding the cost of a Windows 7 Home Basic license will bring you up to just about Php22K.

For that price the laptop is configured with a 500GB hard drive, 2GB of RAM and an optical drive. It has all the usual connectivity options, but no USB 3.0 or Bluetooth. The 6-cell 4400 mAH battery should be good for 4 hours of battery life.  The eMachines eMD443-E352g50Mikk is the cheapest E-350 laptop in the market at the present time. 

If you are looking for something smaller, you may want to take a look at the 11.6-inch HP Pavilion DM1-3016AU which cost Php20,900 with Windows 7 Home Basic installed. 

If you want a 14-inch unit with a longer battery life or a DVD writer, take a look at the Asus K43U-012. It has the same specifications as the Acer eMD443-E352g50Mikk, but with a larger 5200 mAh battery and a DVDRW optical drive. The Asus K43U-012 cost more at Php21,995 without an operating system.
