So, covid happened.

I am in need of a new lappy now. I have a few in mind -

My needs include online teaching for now, later this would be used in engineering (maybe even till a PHD course, who knows? ;) ). I would also game in it. The I/O should at least consist of 2 USB ports (the more the merrier) and a audio jack.

LOOKS DON'T MATTER. Slim and cool or beefy and hot , anything would comply. Just let the build quality be not bad.

Can a fellow geek guide me in the right direction?

If you can wait then wait at least amazon great shopping sale/flipkart big billion sale in Oct. Flipkart is as reliable as amazon as far as laptop purchases are concerned provided you buy from flipkart own seller(retailnet) just like amazon own seller(appario retail) & make an unboxing video of the laptop after delivery.
 
The amazon product that you listed is sadly too much over my budget, and I sadly can't believe flipkart for such a costly purchase..............
I bought my first laptop from FK back in 2013, bought one from paytm as well. FK is good, but there are surely more negative reviews compared to amazon but they likely get tens of thousands or lakhs of orders per day.
 
Though I can also purchase a lappy from a local retailer, so feel free to suggest any unavailable products along with their appropriate prices(like this Buy ASUS TUF Gaming A15 Laptop 15.6" FHD 144Hz Ryzen 7 4800H, GTX 1650Ti 4GB Graphics (8GB RAM/1TB HDD + 256GB NVMe SSD/Windows 10/Bonfire Black/2.30 Kg), FA506II-HN153T Online at Low Prices in India - Amazon.in), he might have 'em.
I think that costs close to 80k & you were saying 68k as "too much over budget".

R5 4600H + GTX 1650 powered HP Pavilion or Asus A15 are your best bet, costs 60/63k for base variants. A15 has SSD in base variant vs HDD in HP.

Lol, the problem is that first my budget was 50k then I extended it to 65k cause laptops in 50k were not of my liking.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will certainly look into them today and report here accordingly (which one I got finally).
