Are you a blogger? Or maybe you want to start blogging and need to switch over from the laptop/desktop that you’re sharing with your siblings. Or maybe you want to switch from your desktop to a laptop. Or you a little tight on budget? I think I might have found a solution for you guys.

iBall compbook launch

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post. I just attended the launch of this new product and was so impressed that this topic just entered my mind, and I couldn’t get over it unless I write about it.

It all began with a shocking revelation that percentage of Indians that have access to personal computers is mere 9%. Imagine rest of India either shares the computers in cyber cafes, school, colleges or just doesn’t use a personal computer! Imagine what we can all accomplish if we all have access to such a laptop. But one of the major hiccups in such a development is affordability. Laptops are costly!

iBall CompBook Excelance is a product that has been launched by iBall in strategic partnership with Intel and Microsoft to address this affordability issue. This new laptop will hit the markets with an MRP of just Rs. 9,999/- And here’s why I think it’s a great option for people of my kind aka bloggers!

  1. Affordability

This is an obvious one. If you’re a beginner in blogging and want to buy a new laptop with your pocket money or hard-earned money, it might take you months to get a big powerful laptop. Getting a laptop at just Rs. 9,999/- is just an unbelievable deal. Why not just grab it! I am saying it at a time when I have two laptops, and I still want to buy this iBall CompBook Excelance. I got the chance to use it, and I pretty much liked the interface, speed and whatever few things I check in a computer I intend to use just for writing and blogging. (Of course, primary reason behind that is my current blogging laptop is always making me regret that bottle of coke which I spilled over my laptop and that first destroyed the motherboard, then keyboard and now WiFi drivers 😛 )

2. Good for blogging work

If you’re a person who is expecting a cool graphic card and an amazing processor, look somewhere else. This is a low-budget option and of course, it is a bit limited when it comes to features. But the kind of features it gives at present are everything a blogger might need.

Features of iBall CompBook Excelance

The laptop comes with a 10,000 mAh battery with a standby time of 22 hours and working time of 8.5 hours. That’s huge and is certainly one of the best features of iBall CompBook Excelance. The Intel Quad Core processor can speed up to 1.83 GHz, and  there’s 2 GB RAM and 32 GB of inbuilt storage. This can be expanded up to 64 GB through micro-SD card slot. The laptop also has two USB ports, supports external HDD for more storage, in-built WiFi, HDMI port and Bluetooth. You can also enjoy high-quality dual speakers, and there’s a 3.5 mm jack for headphones and mic. It comes with a pre-installed Windows 10. It also comes with insurance features (in the case of theft or accidental damage) and additional one-year warranty available as optional features. Oh yes! HD display. 

I highly doubt that a blogger or any normal user would need anything more than this in a LAPTOP. These are the features of laptop designed for home users.

3. Easy to carry and good battery

One of the biggest reasons why iBall CompBook Excelance is a good option for bloggers is because, with a weight of just 1.1 kg, it’s very easy to carry. Think about all those trips and conferences you would need to attend and how tough it gets to carry the big load on your back. A laptop as light as this is ideal for traveling. And it has the good battery that means you can work on the go without running for charging spot every once in a while.

4. Snap features and the brand-new H browser

The cool multi-tasking feature that allows you open multiple windows at the same time is something which would make me individually buy this laptop. You can open multiple tabs at the same time on the screen at once. It helps when you’re writing and are referring from 3-4 different sources. No more minimizing and maximizing windows work. Just open all of them once and keep working! Also, the new browser allows annotations which are cool!

I am seriously impressed with this device. I used it, and I loved the feel I got while using it. I liked the design. I am pretty much satisfied with the features, and I would want to buy it. What do you think?

  1. I am using this for past 8 days and impressed with the offering for just Rs. 9999. It has the good battery and is easy to carry. Seriously, it has now become a part of my blogging life.

    • As far as I know, you can install microsoft office in it. In fact, I had used it myself when I tried the product, thought it has been a long time since then.
      A laptop is a laptop and a tablet is a tablet. I suggest you focus on finding the issue. It must be some glitch in the version you’re installing.
