Micromax introduced its Canvas LapBook L1160 product in this segment in May. Its price is Rs 10,499. It is the cheapest laptop of its class with 11.6-inch display. Let us try to know whether the company has not compromised on performance by reducing the price.
Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 Design and Build
The most important feature of an 11.6-inch laptop is its compactness. Its weight is only 1.1 kg. After folding it and closing it, we have felt very thin. The LapBook is made from plastic. We are glad that the lid does not turn.
After looking at the laptop, you will also say that Micromax has tried its best to completely hide the image of it being a budget laptop.
Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 Performance
The Canvas LapBook L1160 does most of the job just fine. It boots up fast and multitasking on it is less difficult than we expected. You will feel the laptop slowing down a bit. No matter what you do, this feeling will happen every time. Its buttons get a little hot during use.
The display has a resolution of 768×1366 pixels which is a bit low, but not too bad for a small screen. Viewing angles are not great but color reproduction is decent. The laptop also handles media files like 4K videos well. The credit for this goes to the video decoding engine present in the chipset. Above the keyboard are stereo speakers which make for good sound. There won’t be much sound. But it is suitable for occasional song listening and watching videos.
We tried to judge the performance of the LapBook through benchmark tests. But most of the tests could not run due to weak specifications. It is possible to increase the storage of the laptop via a microSD card of 64 GB.
The 4100mAh battery lasted for 5 hours 50 minutes in the PCMark 8 battery test. In normal use, we could use the laptop for 8-9 hours.
Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 is a good Windows 10 laptop for Rs 10,499. If you want a laptop of this size, then it will not be wrong to consider this product from Micromax. If your work involves a lot of typing, then we recommend you buy the 14-inch RDP ThinkBook.
Despite the average build and lack of USB 3.0 connectivity, the LapBook L1160 is a good option, especially when you have a tight budget.
