Worst Deals

 

Lenovo IdeaPad 330 (Buy it here)

Granted, the IdeaPad 330 is a decent choice for those who want a budget laptop for movie playback and casual web surfing but the model on offer during this year's Amazon Prime Day Sale is just not worth it. The laptop in question is powered by an Intel 7th Gen Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and integrated graphics card. Storage onboard is 1TB through a traditional hard drive. Compared to the Asus X507UA we've listed above, the similarly priced IdeaPad 330 comes with no bundled operating system, is a few hundred grams heavier, and does not have a Full HD display. During the Amazon Prime Day Sale 2019, the Lenovo IdeaPad 330 sells for Rs 24,990, giving you a discount of 42 percent. Read our review of the IdeaPad 330 here. We suggest the Asus X507UA instead.

Acer NE46RS Gateway (Buy it here)

While Acer is known for making some great laptops, some deals may be rotten eggs. Here's one example: the Acer NE46RS Gateway. As if to go with its oldish exterior design, the laptop is powered by an Intel Pentium A1020 processor from 2016 along with 4GB of RAM. Storage is taken care of by a 1TB hard drive. The laptop comes with a 14-inch LCD screen with an HD resolution and an optical disc drive. The Acer NE46RS Gateway costs Rs 19,949 during the Amazon Prime Day Sale 2019, offering you a discount of 8 percent. We think you can do better than this dated Acer model.
