Best Laptop Malaysia for Work & Student
"Finding a good laptop can be difficult, but out there there are some solid choices"

A powerful Laptop is definitely nice to have but what if you just want a decent Laptop for study, gaming or work? In this list we are laying out all the solid choices for the Best Laptops in Malaysia in 2024, both budget Laptops as well as for pro users, available on Shopee & Lazada.

Many laptops while decent on the graphics and processing front, cut corners when it comes to audio quality. So, don’t forget to round it up with a couple of great Earbuds or a Speaker!

How We Pick

For more information on the explanation for these specs, scroll down to the bottom for our basic laptop buying guide.

Processor Speed & Power

CPU benchmarking is a complicated process and often involves splitting hair on very precise measurements. Nevertheless, the i3 10th generation is still decent for basic tasks in 2024 and for Windows 11. Hence, considering the more accessible price, we mainly chose laptops with at minimum, i3 10th generation or the Ryzen equivalent. If you prefer a more up to date CPU, many offer variations of the below models.

Graphics Card

Most of our selected laptops are integrated with the IntelĀ® UHD Graphics for the 10th generation Intel processors. Now even though this is a low-cost, average graphics card, it’s not bad at all. You probably shouldn’t be playing demanding games on this though as it would overheat rather quickly. At a pricier tags, other cards in our list include Iris X and GTX 1650 which are superior. But no doubt, the best in our list is the M1 from Apple for Macbook Air.

RAM & ROM Storage

Even for an average laptop for study and work, 8GB of RAM is best, but 4GB is still okay. Therefore, all but one of our selected laptops have 8GB or more RAM.Ā 

In terms of ROM, we chose only those with a large SSD capacity, typically 512GB but at minimum 256GB.

Display Resolution & Size

Most people want a study or work laptop to be no less than 13″ and no more than 15″ in terms of display size. For gaming or editing, 15″ seems optimal. Display resolution on the hand, from 720p to 2K. Hence, this is the range we chose.

OK let’s see the laptops we picked.

The Honor MagicBook X15 is a sleek and lightweight laptop ideal for students & daily home tasks. While the 15″ FHD screen at 60Hz is nothing special at this price, we really like the thin 5.3mm bezels. Onto the brass tacks: It features an 11th Gen i3 Quad-Core CPU and Intel Iris Xe Graphics, suitable for doing spreadsheets, web-based applications and word processing but if youā€™re looking for a gaming laptop, this isnā€™t it.

Lenovo Ideapad Slim 5 Laptop

Best Laptop For Student
Overview:
Pros: Suitable for web-applications, movies, low intensity gaming and creative work.
Cons: Heavy and feels slightly bulky.
Specifications - Display: 16" WUXGA | CPU: IntelĀ® Coreā„¢ i5-12450H | GPU: Integrated IntelĀ® UHD Graphics | Memory: 16GB RAM + 512GB SSD.
Looking for a widescreen laptop for work and play? Meet the Lenovo Ideapad Slim 5. Boasting a 16″ IPS widescreen UXGA display with 1920×1200 resolution (higher than FHD), it’s a bit uncommon to find at this price point, making it perfect for Netflix and movie enthusiasts. Powered by an IntelĀ® Coreā„¢ i5-12450H CPU and Integrated IntelĀ® UHD Graphics, it can handle regular web applications and low-intensity creative work while gaming at 720p medium settings is manageable, though 1080p may result in GPU heat spikes and choppy FPS. The generous 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD M.2 2242 PCIe provide ample storage and smooth performance. Choose from Cloud Grey or Blue case colors for a touch of personalization. On the downside: weighing 1.89 kg, it may feel slightly heavy for some users and its 17.9mm slim profile seems a bit bulky compared to other laptops out there, but bear in mind this is a 16ā€ screen laptop, though. Comes with Bluetooth 5.1, Windows 11 and Office 2021 pre-installed.

Cons: Bulky and heavy, only 8GB RAM.
Specifications - Display: 16" WUXGA | CPU: AMD Ryzenā„¢ 5 5600H | GPU: AMD Radeonā„¢ Vega 7 | Memory: 8GB DDR4 + 512GB.
Our pick for an affordable laptop for creative work is the Asus Vivobook 16X, which features a 16-inch WUXGA display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and providing an excellent color gamut for immersive visuals. With the AMD Ryzenā„¢ 5 5600H 6 Core CPU and AMD Radeonā„¢ Vega 7 GPU, it excels in handling medium-intensity creative tasks while also delivering reliable FPS for gaming while not specifically built for gaming. The 8GB DDR4 RAM and 512GB M.2 NVMeā„¢ PCIe storage offer sufficient space for regular usage, though it might be a limiting factor for 1080p gaming. Available in both sleek blue and silver designs, the laptop looks fine design-wise.

Laptop Buying Guide

These are things to keep in mind when buying a laptop:

Display Size and Resolution

The display size of the laptop actually impacts the performance & durability of the laptop more than people think. Laptops with 13″ or lower display size typically are smaller and lighter but are generally less powerful & more prone to overheating. For most cases, 14″ or 15″ are optimal.Ā 

The optimal resolution for a 13″, 14″ & 15″ laptops ranges from 1080p to 2K. So aim for these if you can. There are of course, other factors that affect the overall output quality, but these go beyond the scope of this guide (and quite complicated to compare).

CPU

The CPU or Central Processing Unit, is the brain of the computer which controls the overall performance. There are many CPUs such as Intel Core, AMD Ryzen, and Apple M1. While the Intel vs Ryzen vs M1 debate between experts will rage on, the generation of the CPU also plays a role.

For instance, laptops that come with Intel Core i5 10th generation generally performs better than Intel Core i3 10th generation (given that i5 has more cores, cache & higher clock speeds) but not always. While in most cases, i5 10th gen is better than say, i5 3rd gen. You can always check benchmarks online.

For a budget laptop in Malaysia, we wouldn’t recommend going below i3 10th generation. For a high end laptop, the Ryzen 7, Ryzen 9, i7 and i9 are the best performers currently in 2024, but are expensive.

Graphics Card

Graphics cards render images on a display. For basic laptops, Integrated GPUs such as the IntelĀ® UHD Graphics, would suffice. For gaming & graphics-intensive work, you can opt for either high, mid or low end graphics cards like NVIDIA MX450 (low), RTX 2060 (Mid) and RTX 3080 (High). For video editing or gaming at medium to high settings, we recommend the GTX1650 and above, with some VRAM.

RAM

RAM stands for Random Access Memory. More RAM means faster processing speeds. Most laptops nowadays come with at least 4GB of RAM, many with 8GB. For most uses like surfing the web, video streaming or working with Microsoft Office, 8GB is pretty good. For gaming and graphics work, get more than 8GB. If the laptop you’d like to purchase comes with less than desired, you can always get a RAM stick and add more RAM.

HDD/SSD

HDD and SSD are two types of storage that allow you to store files on your laptop. Between the two, SSD is 3 times faster in terms of data transfer and performance compared to HDD. But price wise, HDD is much cheaper. Go for SSD if you value faster performance. Alternatively, you can always get an external HDD to store files like images, videos, documents, etc, and keep the SSD as your installation directory.

VRAM

VRAM stands for Video Random Access Memory. You can think of it as additional RAM. This is an additional important specs only for gamers and editors. Probably not so important to have for basic use.

Tips To Take Care Of Your Laptop

Clean Regularly

Dust will surely accumulate over time especially on the fan blades within the laptop body. It is recommended to dust off the inside of your laptop once every month to keep it from overheating. You might want to take it to professionals and check the fine print in your warranty cards before you open up anything though.

Monitor The CPU & GPU TemperatureĀ 

A thing to note about graphics cards & CPUs on laptops is that it can be deadly costly to repair after they overheat. So, you will absolutely need to keep an eye on the temperature of your graphics card when doing heavy tasks. Use software like HWMonitor. The ideal GPU temperature is between 65Ā° to 85Ā° C and CPU, 65Ā° to 90Ā° C.

Keep Windows or OS Updated

Keeping your OS updated ensures devices communicate better, problems and bugs are eliminated or minimized, and may lead to some minor performance enhancements.Ā 

Use Protective Accessories

Protective accessories like keyboard skin, laptop skin or padded bag help avoid or minimize physical damages to your laptop. It goes without saying, it would be best if you don’t put your laptop in dangerous positions in the first place.
