Micromax, which recently entered the world of notebook and 2-in-1 convertibles with the launch of Canvas Lapbook and Laptab, is now announcing more powerful Alpha series Windows laptops.

For Micromax, Alpha series is the fourth laptop and it is being introduced as ideal machines for multi-taskers. The laptop steps up from low-power processor to Intel Core i3 coupled with 6GB RAM. The laptops come with 15.6-inch HD display and 500GB RAM. The Core i3 processor used here is a 5th generation one but 6GB RAM should really smoothen the overall experience.

Micromax Alpha series laptops are lightweight weighing just 2.1Kg and feature expandable storage up to 1TB. Micromax Alpha series notebook packs a 4-cell battery which Micromax claims can deliver up to 4.45 hours of non-stop usage.

As far as connectivity is concerned, Micromax Alpha series supports Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 with low energy mode. The laptop also offers two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, one ethernet jack and one HDMI port. The laptop comes with dual speakers for audio playback.

Micromax Alpha series laptop runs 64-bit Windows 10 and does not feature an optical drive. The laptop is priced at Rs 26,990 and will be Flipkart exclusive. Micromax is offering 1 year onsite warranty with the product.

Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone giant also recently announced its entry in the consumer PC business with the launch of two new Windows 10 based computers. In India, Micromax is already seeing competition in the budget PC business from iBall and RDP.
