2. Laptops

The second most sought category is laptops. It’s like a second life for users (The first one is the phone, in case you’re guessing). Since most of the work is online, we can easily say that laptops have become one of the most important categories of best New Year gifts in 2021. Here is the list of notebooks that you can choose from as per the category.

For Light and Casual users:

HP 14 Ultra-Thin laptop

The laptop comes with 10th Gen i3 processor (up to 3.4 GHz), 8GB DDR4 RAM, and 256GB SSD. It comes with Intel UHD integrated graphics for daily activities and a TrueVision HD camera. The laptop comes with Windows 10 Home and Office 2019 preloaded.

For medium performance (light gaming and video editing)

Lenovo IdeaPad S340

Lenovo does have a long-standing name when it comes to laptops. You can’t always bank upon the best in segment laptops, but this one is an exception. The Lenovo IdeaPad S340 comes with a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor (up to 3.6 GHz). It has an 8GB DDR4 ram with 512GB SSD.

Since we mentioned gaming, there has to be NVIDIA, right? Well, the laptop comes with NVIDIA MX 230 2GB GDDR5 for entry-level gaming.

If you are also into video editing, the Lenovo IdeaPad S340 does not disappoint. However, do not expect to get smooth performance under resource-intensive apps like Premier Pro or After effects. Still, you can run basic video editing apps like Filmora and Powerdirector to give it a start.

The display comes with 14′ FULL HD IPS technology. It also features rapid charge technology, which can charge your battery up to 80% in 1 hour.
