Previously, we listed the top 5 laptops that you can buy under 50K. Today, we’re moving on towards the higher budget ranges. In this range, we have an entirely exclusive set of laptops available. This is where things get interesting, there is a wide variety of laptops that are entire power houses. As we move towards the 100K mark, we find convertible laptops that feature beautiful touch screens, matchless processors, and immense storage. Given below is our list for the top five notebooks that you can get under the 100K range:

1. Asus Zenbook UX305FA

Price: PKR 95,500/-

The Asus Zenbook series in both smartphones and notebooks is an exclusive one. They feature a signature aluminium body that looks attractive even from a distant location. Though scarce in availability in Pakistan, this notebook has made its name in the global market as one of the leading performers in this range. In Pakistan, it is available at HomeShopping here. As Asus advertises it: The Zenbook UX305FA notebook is slimmer, lighter, and faster than any other in its class. It surely is one of the slimmest laptops around with a weight of only 1.18 kg. This laptop is recommended for anyone looking for mobility, powerful processing, and attractive looks with the exclusion of a touchscreen of course (not everyone likes them on their notebooks!).
