Asus has added the BR1100 series of laptops as its entry-level offering for students or people with a tight budget. The laptops are priced under the ₹30K price segment and they are powered by Intel Celeron processors and Windows 10 software. You can upgrade the latter to Windows 11. Both the new Asus laptops come with USB-C charging, vapour chamber cooling, DDR4 RAM, SSD storage, dual-array mics, a webcam, and up to 10 hours of claimed battery life.
Asus has packed the BR1100 laptops with Intel Celeron N4500 processor with up to 2.8GHz clock speed. This is paired with a copper vapour cooling chamber, Intel UHD integrated GPU, 4GB DDR4 RAM, 128GB PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD storage (further expandable up to 2TB), and a 42WHr battery with up to 10 hours of estimated endurance.
The new laptops are also featuring 2 USB-A ports, a USB-C socket with a charging facility, an AC port, an HDMI 1.4 port, an RJ-45 (with Gigabit speeds) port, a Kensington lock and a 3.5mm headphone jack. For wireless connectivity, you are getting WiFi 5 and Bluetooth version 4.2.
There are dedicated buttons for the power key, microphone mute, and volume rockers. You also get a 3DNR webcam with a privacy shutter and dual-array microphones with AI noise-cancelling technology. On the 2-in-1 BR1100 laptop, you get an additional 13MP camera on the back.
Speaking of the 2-in-1 laptop (BR1100FKA), that one has a touch-screen too. The form factor and the touch response aside, both displays are 11.6-inches in size with HD resolution, LED type, and TUV Rheinland rated eye protection.
Last but not least, the laptops have a MIL-STD-810-certified rugged build, Windows 10 (upgradeable to Windows 11), TPM 2.0 support, ASUS Antibacterial Guard (coating on frequently-touched areas on the laptop), and owing to their budget price, they have broad bezels around the display.
The Asus BR1100CKA laptop is priced at ₹24,999 and the 2-in-1 BR1100FKA model comes at a price tag of ₹29,999 through Flipkart, Amazon, and Asus e-store in India.
