I am still betting for IFA for new lenovo launches. They have to display something there or else they are surely going to loose the edge in the market.

) What is your budget? (INR or USD)
Rs 85 k ish A little higher is considerable. Lower pricing is obviously great.

2) What size & weight consideration (if any) would you prefer?

Thin and Light 15" . I had a Dell Xps 15 and it was heavy as hell. No more. 2kgs or a little more seems about right.

3) What are the primary tasks you will be performing with this notebook?

Mostly adobe softwares. Upto three four programs side by side with a browser with a million tabs.

3d tools like Blender, Maya etc.

Gaming frequently but not all the time.

5) Any typical configuration in your mind you're eying for ?

Core i7 (as I'm already using one from the second generation and would like to upgrade to newer ones)

1Tb hdd seems to be the norm. Won't say no to 2.

And 4gb ram too. 8 or 16 is great if my requirements seem to suggest that.

Graphic card that's able to handle my requirements seamlessly. And helps running new games.

Moniter that's nice because I'd be doing colour sensitive work.

Battery life the more the better as in any case.

4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
Don't have a brand preference.

But helps if the service backup is sorted throughout the country and not location dependant.
Also don't like over the top too cool branding like the Lenovo y50.


6) Anything else you would like to say?
Screen resolution ( 1080p (Full HD) )

Battery back up ( normal (3-4hrs) requirement anything more is great. )

Purchase place : store purchase is great because I can get it right away. But online buying is fine if there's an advantage.

Asus g551jx-dm036h vs HP envy ae009Tx

Asus g551jx-dm036h
Seems to have a better processor
Core i7-4720HQ
1TB hard drive 7900 rpm
8GB ram
But Graphic Card is 2GB 950GTX
Looks good but don't really.like the overbranded feel. Seems sturdy.


HP envy ae009Tx
Core i7-5500U
2TB hard drive 5400 rpm
16GB ram
4GB 950 GTX
Looks better, don't like the macbook styled feel. Like the finish better than Asus.

Both cost around 85. Atleast the quotes I've got.

Really confused. Which one makes more sense? Is there any other option that does almost the same ? Also is there that big a difference in performance?

[MENTION=319470]Hardhat[/MENTION] , since you are spending good money, make sure you get laptop with SSD Disk or may be mSATA. I had upgraded my laptop where I replaced ODD with SSD . Improvement were huge, now I find all regular HDD computers so slow because now I am used to SSD.

wouldnt you rather clone your boot HDD to an SSD , then replace the HDD with the SSD and use the HDD in the ODD caddy??
Because ODD is limited to SATA 2.6 not 3 so your main HDD slot will be better as it has SATA 3

Asus one has m2 ssd slot. Better to use it without removing either ODD or HDD. ;)

One last question, how different is Gl552kx finishing compared to g551jx-dm036h. As in the body. Plastic. Hinges. Etc.

I know I'm being picky but then this becomes irritating later when your laptop is in pieces or looks ugly.

So you are a faishonsta?
Model?
Dude there are tons of customization options available.
Dude plastic finish is decent.

1.If you can import from XoticPC,it's best option.

2. Or else save your money and get GL552JX.Add M.2/SATA III SSD for 7-8k and rock and roll.

Boy.. thats picky :)
Well, my SSD sits in HDD slot and HDD sits in ODD slot. I just posted here for giving basic idea as first when I had purchased, idea was to not to touch HDD and fit SSD in ODD caddy only, but later had to swap both.

I know,I was asking in general for laptops without an msata slot(mine doesnt :( , was 8k extra at the time, hence the query)

my laptop is 2.5 years old now approx so wondering if itll be worth it or if I should buy a new one
am in the process of trying to buy a SP3 later on too and a netbook at the moment for Dad hence the $$$ issue , will try and convince :D

New macbooks are touchscreen less tablets with keyboard. They have no ports at all. And overpriced for the hardware config.

Are you stoned or what? It has USB ports and all. You're confused between macbook and macbook air.

Though a port for charging exists (and a 3.5 mm headphone jack, if they removed it too, why would any technologically sane person would consider it? ) it shouldn't be counted as a normal USB port.

You have no idea about macs. Nevermind, thanks! :facepalm:
