My 7+ years old laptop has started giving motherboard and/or hard drive issues. I have some urgent documentation work to complete within the next 3 weeks, and my current laptop is unreliable. I’m looking to immediately order a new laptop to get this work done. After that, I’ll either sell it off or keep it as an alternate home laptop. 

Please suggest a good basic laptop with 14" screen running win 10, preferably within 20k and available on Amazon. Need it only for browsing and reading PDFs.

Diagnose the problem, if it’s a motherboard issue then better to get a new one. If not, replace your hdd with a new ssd while using the hdd as an external one. A lot of older laptops can be saved by replacing the hdd with an ssd and/or increasing RAM.

Both motherboard and HDD have issues. Had reworked the motherboard 3 months ago. SMART status of HDD is also poor.

*Try to Get a Second Hand laptop from OLX or purchase a Refurbished one From Local Dealers with Minimum 1 yr of Warranty & Don’t Forget to Get an Invoice.

*If portability doesn’t matter then 20k Is Enough for a Gaming pc built with refurbished processor& All brand new parts .

*You can’t find a Decent Deal for 20k Either it Will be Celeron/Athlon or Pentium in this Price Range & these processor are not good at all.so Don’t invest 20k on that.

Yes it is a good option but do keep in mind that as per some online comments the oled vivobook series laptops have just avg battery backup(still 2-3 hours I think on power saving mode with reduced screen brightness) but this is not an issue unless you use your laptop mostly during travel & without charging facility available nearby.
