There was a time 4GB ram laptops were enough for general-purpose home and office use. That’s now long gone and 8GB ram models took over that. In 2023, we would recommend going for 16GB ram laptops instead of 8GB ram models to get the best performance and a fluid experience throughout the year.
In 2022, we saw plenty of laptops with 16GB ram from various laptop manufacturers such as HP, Lenovo, Dell, LG, Asus, Fujitsu, Acer etc. The price of these models starts at around Rs 65,000 in India online on Amazon.in / Flipkart / Croma etc.
If these laptops have dedicated AMD or Nvidia GeForce laptop graphics GPU, then the price usually goes a few thousand higher – to around Rs 75,000. The laptop I personally use was brought in 2021- an Asus TUF 17-inch model with AMD Ryzen 7 4800H and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 which was selling for Rs 74,999 at the time of purchase.
For general-purpose use, a laptop with a dedicated graphics GPU is not necessary. It also adds weight to the system making it difficult to carry around in the backpack.
Check out some of the best, and most popular general-purpose 16GB ram laptops made by HP that you can buy in India online below.
Even though this is a 2023 blog post, most of these laptops were launched in 2022. We are yet to see 2023 laptops made by HP to arrive in the market, which are expected to be powered by newer 13th Gen Intel Core i5 / i7 processors or AMD Ryzen 7000 Series chipsets.
HP Pavilion Plus Models were launched in 2022, powered by 12th Gen Intel processors. There are a few different models available. The current lowest price for the 16GB model in this series is ₹75,990. HP Pavilion Plus can be called an all-rounder. It has a 2.2K resolution display offering a crispier screen and is powered by Alder Lake H Series Intel Core i5-12500H / Core i7-12700H offering great performance. HP also launched other Pavilion models with 16GB ram in India. These regular models do not have a 2.2K screen instead sport a Full HD display. Instead of the H Series, these are powered by U Series processors like Intel® Core™ i7-1255U or P Series processors like Core™ i5-1240P.
