5 Budget Laptops under Php25,000 in 2023

Getting a new or replacement laptop might punch a huge hole in your wallet if it’s not planned as part of the budget. It’s not also easy to look for one that will be good enough for your needs and also fit within a certain price range you can actually afford.

Whether the laptop is for your eldest kid who will need it for school, a batch of new employees that will mostly need it for office productivity like MS Word or Excel, or simply for personal use at home like browsing the web, checking emails or streaming, you’d still want a more flexible option available out there.

With a limited budget, you’d still want to stretch it so you’d get the best configuration for the price with the possibility of upgrading the system in the future. At least, down the line, you can add more RAM or storage when the budget permits.

You don’t need to scour around and spend hours searching because we’ve done all the research for you! Here are 5 of the most affordable laptops we found on Villman (via the SM Malls Online App 41 ), all under Php25,000, that should help you in finding what fits for your personal needs without breaking the bank.

IdeaPad Slim 1i 14IJL7 82LV0046PH

This 14-inch laptop is powered by an Intel Celeron N4500 with Intel UHD graphics. You also get 4GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. Running on Windows 11, it also comes with integrated WiFi, Bluetooth and a 42Hh battery that should last a whole day’s use.

It’s a pretty basic laptop but should be workable for common tasks such as web browsing, video playback and office productivity. For just Php19,488 (down 18.78% from Php23,995), this entry-level laptop should do just fine for your basic needs. Check here 303 for details.

Acer Aspire 3 A314-35-C6Y8

Here’s another entry-level laptop with the same 14-inch display running on an Intel Celeron N4500 and Intel UHD graphics. You also get 4GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage.

The unit runs on Windows 10, has built-in WiFi, Bluetooth and Gigabit LAN. The 36.7Wh battery is tested to last up to 8 hours on a single full charge. That should be enough for a whole day’s use without ever looking for a charger.

The Acer Aspire 3 is priced at only Php18,888 (14% off from Php21,999) and you can get it here 167.


If you want a much bigger screen, the ACER A315-35-C6GV, with its 15.6″ Full HD display, can be an alternative option. The rest of the hardware specs are basically the same and you also get Windows 11 right out of the box.

Like the Aspire 3 earlier, the ACER A315-35-C6GV is also priced at Php18,888 (14% off from Php21,999). You can get it here 148.

There’s another variant of the Acer A315 that comes with a more powerful processor. The ACER A315-58-345U is powered by an 11th gen Intel Core i3 processor, with everything else being the same.

This variant is priced at Php24,788 (from Php26,999) so there is a Php5,900 price difference between the Celeron and Core i3 processor. You can get them here 59.

Acer Aspire 5 A514-54-3918

If you have decided to get a slightly more powerful Core i3 model, then here is another option from Acer – the Acer Aspire 5.

This laptop comes in a 14-inch display with full HD resolution, 11th gen Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage.

It supports dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth, Gigabit LAN, an HDMI port, and four USB ports (2 Type-C and 2 Type-A) with Windows 10 running the show.

You can get the Aspire 5 for the same low price of Php24,888 (around 20% down from the original Php30,999 price). Check it out here 279.

Among the five budget laptops we’ve listed here, the Aspire 5 is the most capable and feature-rich model of the lot. So, if you can still stretch your budget, we recommend you pick this one.

For all the laptops listed here, you can get them from VillMan which you can access via the SM Malls Online App. Prices indicated here are ‘lowest price guaranteed’ by SM Malls Online and they promise you can’t get them any lower compared to other online stores out there.

Take note that, while these models will be available elsewhere and with similar configurations, SM Malls Online offers the “Lowest Price Guarantee”. That means you can’t get these laptops anywhere else at a better price than the SM Malls Online App.

You don’t normally get these kinds of bundles and freebies when you shop from other online stores like Lazada or Shopee. That’s on top of the fact that you’re buying from a single source instead of multiple merchants on other shopping apps. That means you also get all of the items simultaneously (and not on a per-item basis).

You can also get the best deals around by watching out for discounts and vouchers. You’ll never know when you can grab additional freebies, bundles or even get free delivery.

The SM Malls Online 81 app promises competitive pricing with a wide range of selections to choose the best value laptop for your intended use. They also offer two ways to get your item — an in-store pick-up (if you are in a rush) or home delivery (if you live quite far) upon check-out and at your convenience.

The app is available to download from Google Play Store and iTunes App Store (click here to download).
