There is a reason why I mentioned "the lower the better" beside my budget. Just coz I have a higher end budget of 120k inr dsnt mean I will spend that much unless its really worth it. I have been saving this money for a year now. And hence I have such a wide budget range. So if something comes cheaper but better I will get that. Though I also don't want to completely compromise on quality like the y50. The problem with g551jk is the 850m. Will it run wild hunt on medium at least? Am still gonna ping you with some questions about the asus model though

I am not sure. However if you want to see the performance of GTX850M please refer this:
http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-850M.107795.0.html

I had a similar reason moving away from the Y50. I really don't want to worry about the screen quality if I am spending 80K on a laptop. Moreover, the accessories given with the ASUS laptop are really great. Moreover, I think Wild Hunt should run at med at HD if not FHD. Shouldn't really be an issue.

the Y50 isnt a compromise on quality at all
its very much worth the price etc
the problem with these laptops is mainly cooling,so even if you can run games on ultra,it depends more on the laptops cooling
Lenovo has decent cooling atleast with the Y50,Y510p

Maxwell cards won't heat up as much as you think. 860m stays pretty cool.

It'll run wild hunt @med sure.

Moreover, if you're up for it, GTX 850m can be overclocked to GTX 860m level.

Accepted the y50 is the cheapest laptop with an 860m. But to keep the price there, lenovo sure made a compromise in several places. Including a bad screen, bad wlan card, 5400rpm HD which is slow, and removed the dvd . Sure y50 has good external looks but when ppl start talking about replacing a laptop's parts (screen in this case) right after its purchase, that itself screams compromise right?

[MENTION=248727]seamon[/MENTION] considering that the 850m is of Kepler make can the g551 jk dissipate the extra heat?

850m is Maxwell.

Why the hell is the wifi card in MSI/Y50 even a problem when all you are going to run is 15 mbps. Intel AC 7260 is strictly for 100mbps upwards.

Most modems don't even support dual band to utilize the AC 7260.

Hmmm... Certainly a very good point to ponder over. How is Asus' ASS btw? (No pun intended )

Trash but that can be said for MSI too. These are new companies. That said, if you are careful, laptops don't need much servicing. They are good for 2-3 years.

Haha. I had enquired about this as well. Didn't really get bad feedback about the ASS though. Moreover as they have ASUS phones in the market as well so I guess they are going to focus on the service part.

Moreover, at load I see that the 850m goes up to 68 degrees at max for now, so the cooling is good. It's just that the exhaust is at the left side of the laptop I tend to keep my hand near the exhaust and it is uncomfortable as it heats up the fingers. :|

Meanwhile I am pushing 80-85 degrees on OCed Kepler. Even this is not hot.

thats not quite true
first off its FHD display is good i dunno why some people dont like it
the wlan card is bad according to some users but easily replaceable
the 5400rpm drive may be slow but if you see the specs of the laptop,it includes a Caching SSD inside to complement the 5400 spinner making it slower than an SSD setup but faster than a 7200rpm drive
also you can have manufacuring defects with any brand
i myself bought the Dell inspiron 7520 instead of the Lenovo Y500 which my friend bought at the same time
my Dell inspiron has issues with the display already despite people saying Dell quality is the best
my friends Y500 is still working fine
also buying an MSI laptop screams even more compromise given that Lenovo has more service centres than MSI and is a more popular brand so parts for Lenovo will be available more easily
that being said im not saying MSI is a bad buy or Dell laptops are bad but these issues are usually stray and in the end the overall experience is what matters

Need to save money. Its either the Asus or lenovo. Now which one

Buy Lenovo, import screen for 10k and change it. You'll have the perfect lappy for your budget.

Lenovo Y50 will do an excellent job
+10000 to seamon's suggestion but if you arent sure about changing screen , you can wait it out and change it in future if need be, no problem

Again. Changing the screen will affect warranty in what way? Am unsure.

It might but the screen wont run away
you can see if you like the screen if you dont ,you always have the option to change in the future :)

I read on flipkart an user's review. He states that the colours on the y50 are so flushed out that he couldn't make out the face of a character in a movie even. So screen replacement will be needed I guess.

Now coming to the replacement; as stated I need to get it imported. Now if I were getting into importing anyway why wouldn't I just get a sager imported? The whole point was to skip the import part.

So slightly stepping in the Asus court right now. But still not decided 100%. Thanks for all the suggestions though guys

Let's see if any more options are available before I buy end of December.
