More about Micromax Ignite laptop
Micromax already has laptops in this price segment and some of them are 2-in-1 devices. None of the other brands offer such a powerful configuration under 20k in the market now. Most manufacturers provide laptops under 20K with Atom processors or 32GB storage. Most of these laptop will come with only 2GB RAM. At least 4 GB RAM is needed for the smooth performance of Windows 10. There are reports that a later Windows 10 64-bit update will require 4 GB ram as minimum requirement. Which mean these 2GB RAM laptops will struggle to perform or won’t get updates.
Shubhajit Sen, Chief Marketing Officer for Micromax stated, “The decision to foray into newer categories is solely basis the understanding of consumer demand and need and matching it with our strong credentials in the Indian market. While the laptop category is not growing very rapidly today, we believe the key barrier is to give a high performance, well designed product at an accessible price. We have always strived to close the gap between consumer needs and available devices by bringing alive the best technology innovations and we believe we have done it with Ignite.”
