looks fair enough to me plus you are getting 2 years of additional warranty but if you wish to play games look for other option.

HD4000 may be weak but Trinity processing power is even more low so decide if you want to sacrifice more processing power for slightly better GPU.

yet to use any HD4000 based laptop but i can play low system requirement games even on power saver mode with A6 4400M without any lag but some softwares take time to start up. i am using HP 4445S.
I Think i will go will i3 then since its for my sister

are you looking for a gaming laptop ? If so then Samsung NP350V5X-S01IN or HP Pavilion G6-2007TX.
It is for my sister, who won't be gaming much i think. So i will go ahead with the HP Probook then. Thanks for your suggestions..:)

SHOULD BE EASILY REMOVABLE BACK PANEL OR THERE SHOULD NOT BE OVERHEATING/ FAN PROBLEMS

getting a rugged laptop at 22.5k is next to impossible AFAIK but you can check out : Asus X53U-SX358D or Lenovo G585 (59-348455).

The closest one that comes in line for rigidity and sturdiness is HP ProBook , or Lenovo Thinkpads. (In terms of price).

I have a probook 4410s... It fell and then after few months fan failed. So I removed and saw that the mould thingy which holds screws in place broke off. The keyboard comes off if I pull hard

But mine is an old model
