Last 2 Days to Save Big on Taxes: Upgrade Your Office Tech India!

Tax season can be a stressful time for Businesses, SMEs and individuals (Freelancers) engaged in profession in India, but did you know that upgrading your office technology can help you save significantly on your taxes? With just 2 days left until the end of the financial year, now is a good time to invest in high-end computers and claim tax deductions on your business expenses!


Under Section 32 of the Indian Income Tax Act, businesses can claim tax deductions of up to 40% of the cost of high-end computers as a depreciation expense each year for a period of 3 years. This means that by investing in high-end computers, you could claim significant tax deductions, reduce your tax liability, and increase your savings. However, it's important to note that the deduction for computer purchases is reduced to half if the purchase is less than 180 days old. So, it's always better to make purchases well in advance to claim maximum deductions.


Contact your accountant/tax consultant if you are not familiar with tax savings with respect to depreciation.


Upgrading your office technology not only helps you save on your taxes but also improves your productivity and efficiency. Plus, with just 2 days left in the financial year, now is the perfect time to make your purchase and claim your tax deductions!


So why wait? Let's dive in and discover the top high-end computers available in India and upgrade our office technology today! Note: "High-end" computers are not necessarily required, however, higher-end laptops generally help in better productivity and performance and the higher price means higher depreciation/deduction.



Best business laptops for general productivity and reliability


CPU: Apple M2 Max 12 Cores | GPU: Apple M2 30 Cores | Ram: 32GB | SSD: 1TB | Display: 3K 120Hz 14in Mini-LED | Weight: 1.63 Kg

Pros

+ Reliability

+ Amazingly fast

+ Some of the best display on a laptop

+ Seamless integration with Apple Ecosystem

+ Long battery life


Cons

- Cannot upgrade ram/storage

- Not suitable for high end gaming

- Doesn't support certain windows only applications

- Doesn't work well with GPU heavy applications optimized for Nvidia/AMD hardware


Who is this for?

Programmers, Freelancers in creative fields like design/content creation/web development, and Business users. Not recommended for gamers and non-iOS/macOS game developers.


This is the all-new 2023 Apple MacBook Pro 14 with the next gen Apple M2 Max with 12 Cores.

As far as reliability goes, this is as good as it gets. Sure, the reliability and smoothness do come at a cost and might even be "overkill" for users just looking for productivity and reliability.


However, if the price tag doesn't bother you, then you get some of the best battery life on a laptop, an amazingly bright Mini-LED Retina display (if that is too much technical jargon, it simply means that this is one of the best displays in the market), runs pretty much everything that you throw at it except for some windows based software and a lot of games.


But then again, if gaming was your concern, a MacBook isn't what you should be looking for.


Bottom Line: If you need a MacOS laptop and if the cost is not much of a concern in favor of the benefits, then the MacBook Pro 14 is a no-brainer.

Best Windows Alternative

CPU: Intel Core i9-13900H 14 Cores | GPU: Nvidia RTX 4090 16GB 145W TGP | Ram: 32GB | SSD: 2TB | Display: QHD+ 240Hz 16in Mini-LED | Weight: 2.3 Kg

This is the all-new 2023 Asus Zephyrus M16 with the latest 13th-gen Intel i9 with 14 Cores and a 16GB RTX 4090 graphics card! As far as specifications go on a compact machine, this hits a brilliant spot for all kinds of power users. This is an excellent alternative to the above-mentioned MacBook Pro and even outperforms it when it comes to graphics performance. However, if battery life is a priority, the Zephyrus M16 falls short and will only offer a few hours for any serious workload.


Everything else is top of the line with some of the best and fastest displays on a laptop, upgradeable ram and storage (something that the Mac doesn't offer), and excellent reliable performance.


Bottom Line: Compact powerhouse windows machine for a 16in laptop. If you can look past the average battery life, this is the best compact high-end windows laptop that you can get right now.


 

Best Dual touch display

CPU: Intel Core i9-12900H 14 Cores | GPU: Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti 4GB 60W TGP | Ram: 32GB | SSD: 1TB | Display: QHD+ 120Hz 14.5in OLED | Weight: 1.75 Kg

Pros

+ Relatively lightweight! + Relatively lower-priced


Cons

This is the 2022 Asus Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED with the 12th-gen Intel i9 with 14 Cores and a 4GB RTX 4050 discrete graphics card! While it might not seem much on paper, this is an excellent device for creators and editors and for other users such as business users who need to multi task with two screens at a time. The processor is high end full size laptop processor and there is a decent graphics card present for hardware accelerated tasks.


Weighing in at just 1.75Kg, it is well below regular laptops that pack as much performance. Not to mention, this is one of the very few laptops to offer dual touch displays.


Bottom Line: Creators, designers and other users who could make use of dual touch displays and need a high end processor should look into this option. They are also less than half the price of the other two options meant above.


 

Best Value for money Apple laptop

CPU: Apple M2 8 Cores | GPU: Apple M2 10 Core | Ram: 8GB | SSD: 256GB | Display: QHD+ (16:10) 60Hz 13.6in IPS | Weight: 1.24 Kg

This is the 2022 Apple MacBook Air with the 2nd Gen Apple M2. Weighing in at just 1.24Kg, it is one of the lightest laptops in this list that also performs reliably well and with an amazing battery life. However, in terms of upgradeability, the Mac still remains unupgradeable but it is a good choice when you just need something that just works and/or already use other Apple products.
