Let us mention 1 of the Best Laptops Under 40k (₱40,000) in the Philippines this year of 2021

Here is another Asus brand laptop for you. It comes with an Intel Core i5-Processor up to 3.60 GHz of speed. Compared to the 30,000 laptop which we have blogged about, it has more processing power, which means faster speed.

At this price point, we have a bigger storage of 256 SSD Gen 3 PCIe in addition to 1 TB of HDD. This can give you more storage if you are planning to install more apps aside from your usual programs.

also, you can observe the additional ports that it gives you. It has 3.0 and 2.0 USB ports which help you access your other external hard drives and flash drives. Moreover, the HDMI port which you can set up to add an extra monitor to you, otherwise, for your presentation needs.

Our next laptop under 40,000 is Lenovo IP Slim 3 81W30074PH / 75. We can observe that it has no HDD. However, it comes with 2 x NVMe. I think it is also a good alternative to having 1 SSD and 1 HDD when it comes to speed. But for me, I would compliment this laptop if it has larger storage on D: drive.

Additionally, you can notice it has a built-in card reader which is absent in the ASUS Laptop above. Having a built-in card reader is a big help. Especially if you are dealing with different sizes of storage cards. If you are a photographer or a videographer, you can easily plug-in the storage device from your equipment for faster transferring of files.

Out of the box, it has 8GB memory, the same as the ASUS. It weighs 1.5kg, 0.3kg lighter than the ASUS. But, it has a lower screen size of 14″ compared to 15.6″ of the Asus above. In any case, it is not a big difference.

This could be the 2nd Best Laptops Under 40k (₱40,000) in the Philippines this year of 2021.
