Known for its Canvas line of smartphones, Micromax delved into the Laptop sector with its Canvas Lapbook series of Laptops, the first of which is the Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1161 which was launched last year. Now the Indian company has continued in that line with the Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160.

The Micromax Canvas Lapbooks are budget Laptops designed to deliver a PC experience to consumers at an affordable price. However, the fact that they are budget devices doesn’t mean that they have low-end specs; the Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 packs some premium features at an affordable price. Here are the specs and price of the Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160.

Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 Specifications (Details)

Display & Body Design

“The Canvas Lapbook is as premium-looking as powerful, with a metallic finish, streamlined edges and sleek body.”

The Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 features a 11.6 inches IPS display with a pixel resolution of 1366 * 768 pixels, and allows you to view the screen from almost any angle. The body of the laptop is made from metal, and comes in two color variants: Silver and Black. It however, has some plastic in its design.

The Lapbook weighs just 1.3 kg, surprisingly light for a laptop. Combine the weight and the screen size together, and you get a laptop portable enough to be taken anywhere.

The keyboard has a trackpad (obviously) with two clickable buttons positioned side by side at the bottom, acting as left-click and right-click respectively.

Memory & Performance

“Power your tasks and shuffle between them seamlessly with the Intel Quad-Core Processor (up to 1.83GHz) and 2GB DDR3 RAM.”

The Lapbook L1160 is powered by a Quad-Core Intel Atom processor capable of clocking up to 1.83GHz, comparatively faster than similar laptops. It comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage, which isn’t bad enough considering the price range. The internal memory can be further expanded with a micro SD card up to 64GB. The laptop uses Flash Storage, which ensures faster boot cycles and data processing.

Power & Battery

“The Canvas Lapbook’s 4100mAh marathon backup enables non-stop usage, allowing you to carry it anywhere and multi-task all day long.”

The Lapbook L1160 runs on a 4100mAh Lithium Polymer battery with a great battery life. According to claims on the lapbook’s official product page, the battery is capable of lasting up to 10 hours. Coupled with the efficient battery management of its accompanying operating system, the battery would make the experience worth the while.


“The in-built Wi-Fi connectivity lets you shoot mails, stream video-content and upload heavy attachments. Exchange documents & play lists with friends via 2 USB 2.0 slots and Bluetooth 4.0 . Watch your favorite movies on the big screen with the HDMI port.”

The Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 is Wi-Fi-enabled, but doesn’t come with any SIM slot. It comes with Bluetooth 4.0, and has two USB 2.0 slots, one Micro USB slot and a single HDMI port.

The Lapbook is GPS-enabled, and can be used with Wi-Fi Direct and Hotspot Tethering. That should suffice for the absence of SIM Slots.

“The Lapbook has a 0.3MP front camera, which let’s you participate in video conferences for work and enjoy video chatting by connecting with loved ones.”

Before, it was an unusual thing for a Laptop to have a camera, but right now, a laptop without a camera would be considered old-fashioned and unworthy of buying. The Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 comes with a VGA camera at the front as a webcam, with a 640 * 480 pixel resolution. While the VGA camera may not be the definition of quality in modern webcams, when you consider that the Apple Macbook also comes with a similar camera at almost double the price, you realize that it was a great deal of effort on Micromax’s side to include the camera at all.

Audio & Video

“Watch your favorite action thrillers as the Realtek ALC5645 Audio Codec Speakers pump up the entertainment quotient with booming audio quality”

The Lapbook has a 3.5mm audio jack, and comes with dual speakers. The dual speakers are positioned at the front of the laptop, in a way that provides an immersive audio experience to its user(s). All this, combined with the RealTek ALC5645 Audio Codec technology offers a satisfying audio experience far above the cost of the device.

Software & Other Features

“Kick-start apps in a snap with pre-installed Windows 10 on the Canvas Lapbook. Be your productive best as you switch between mails, music and match scores with Snap Assist. Get Cortana to look up show timings and set reminders for you.”

The Micromax Canvas Lapbook runs Windows 10 out of the box, offering the latest features and function in the Windows ecosystem. The in-built battery management system of Windows 10 ensures a longer standby time, and its revamped UI makes it both exciting and easier to navigate.
