The Cheapest Laptops: The sub-25k Round-Up

The Asus Eee PC 900 will officially launched today and the retail price hasn’t been finalized yet. Though initial report from the inside is that it will be at Php24,995, several units available in stores tagged them up to Php28,000+. So, I’ve rounded a list of sub-25k laptops from several name brands to see how they measure up.

The Asus Eee PC, despite it’s small form factor, has already encroached on the market of cheap low-end laptop market. In our round-up I’ve include various laptop brands with their specs and SRP.

The list includes Asus, Acer, HP, Compaq, IBM, Lenovo, MSI, Packard Bell, Neo, Blue, ECS and Prestigio. Didn’t include some of the less familiar ones. While the models indicated above are quite old (2 to 3 year-old models), they’re still widely available in the market and are priced under Php25,000.

The ECS G320 is already priced at the same level as the Asus Eee PC 701 and was said to be the cheapest laptop back in mid-2005 retailing for just Php29,995 when it came out.

Note: Price lists were taken from PC Express, PC Corner and Rising Sun Computers.
