I had enquired in the local shops for the previous version with Ryzen 3500U. It was available technically but recently went out of stock about a month or so back. So I suspect this would be available through local channels too. Because it was an interesting CPU for me I went ahead and bought it in spite of poor reviews about screen.

I haven't physically opened up the laptop to check RAM slots but because this configuration of RAM is in the market in various laptops sold by ASUS for quite sometime now, we can say that it is like that. 4 GB soldered and 4 GB in a slot. Can be replaced with 8 GB officially but I think I read somewhere that a person had tried successfully with a 16 GB stick to get 20 GB in total. I am not willing to test it for the time being. Presently 8 GB is working for my light use.

In bbd sale it was available for 46k I think after card discount so this time it should be at least ~50k after card discount. At this price it still seems alright but see if you can get acer nitro with similar config at this price as it has overall better build quality.

Both of this are aspire models. I was asking about nitro models you were referring to.

Ok-ish. Not a proper gaming laptop, so might run hot.

This is a much better choice for same price, but better build quality & thermals:
Buy MSI GL65 Leopard, Intel 9th Gen. i5-9300H, 15.6" FHD Gaming Laptop (8GB/512GB NVMe SSD/Windows 10 Home/Nvidia GTX 1650/ Black/2.3Kg), 9SCXK-065IN Online at Low Prices in India - Amazon.in
Many are claiming poor battery life though & MSI doesn't have as good after sales as others but is providing 2 years of warranty. GL65 is a good model unlike GF65.

Thanks. But just to clarify again, I am not looking for a gaming laptop. But something with good memory and for multimedia use but happy if it supports gaming. Any idea how the display is for aspire models mentioned above?

Don't expect much, will be a 60% sRGB display like other laptops of this price range. Check manufacturer specs if its IPS or TN, nothing else to look for (IPS is superior).

It was available for less during GIS sale so after card discount its price would have been ~46-47k.

Aspire 41g with 3550h is mentioned as having ips display whereas Intel version which is higher priced is having only TN display. Could this be correct?

Can be, Intel CPUs are expensive.

Looks like an error to me because reviews mention "amazing viewing angles" & I also found this:

Both AN515-43 and A715-41G have similar configuration. How to decide which is better? iam not able to get a site capable of comparing these.

A715-41G is aspire 7 series model with ryzen 7 3750H processor so processor wise this model is better but overall build wise Nitro series is better than aspire series.

R7 3750H is not much ahead of R5 3550H & i5 9300H is bit better than R7 3750H. So I don't think R7 3750H should be considered as a big positive point.

You are right, got mislead by ryzen 5 vs 7 naming scheme thinking it should be better but just now checked & difference is similar to 3600 vs 3700x(or in other words negligible).
