Display: 15.6-inch, 1366 x 768 pixels | Dimensions: 310.00 x 52.30 x 40.64mm | RAM: 8GB | Storage: 256GB SSD | CPU: 1.2GHz Intel Core i3-1005G1 | GPU: Integrated Intel UHD | Weight: 2.9g | Price: ₦270,000 ($469)
The HP Notebook 15 comes with a huge 15-inch display and 1366 x 768 pixels resolution. However, the display isn’t as bright and colourful as we expected. Though this laptop is powered by the 10th Gen Intel Core Processor, you might decide to go for the HP ENVY 13 if you want the latest version. But we recommended the HP Notebook 15 because of its durability plus an HDMI port at a lesser price.
It also packs the Intel UHD CPU for quality graphics. Unfortunately, there is no optical drive dedicated for inserting of CDs. But with just NGN270,800($469), you are getting a laptop with an HDMI port which you will hardly find in most laptops. The HDMI port enables you to connect your laptop with any other device like the TV. With this feature, the laptop serves as another source of display for watching movies at home.

Display: 15.6-inch | Dimensions: 35.8 x 24.2 x 1.8 cm | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 500GB HDD | CPU: Intel Celeron | GPU: Intel HD Graphics | Weight: 3kg | Price: ₦141,000 ($245)
The HP 15 is the cheapest of all the laptops we have listed here. It is powered by the Intel Celeron processor which is not as good as other processors, but this laptop is capable enough to serve a student efficiently. It has a massive 500GB of internal storage which is enough to store all your files, plus 4GB RAM that can help to boost the laptop’s performance.
The HP 15 comes with a huge 15.6-inch display and 1366 x 768 pixels resolution. Therefore, the display isn’t that bright enough. Costing just NGN141,000 ($245), we think this laptop should be a great choice for a student who wants an affordable laptop for school projects.
Due to the lack of attractive designs, colourful display, a convertible body, and an IR camera, this laptop might seem to be the lowest in quality compared to all the laptops we have listed here. However, if you want these qualities all in one laptop, you can go for the HP Spectre X360 but remember you can save a whole NGN724,000 ($1,255) if you consider this budget laptop.
