All laptop related queries here!!!

Is this a good laptop for 50k. The base clock speed is only 1ghz?

Seems good for the price for normal usage but might not have RAM slot, might have free 2.5" drive bay though.
 
Looks like it is a tie-up/racket between manufacturer - found this page which says compatible with 'Compatible with ThinkPad E14 Gen 2' -

Memory RAM & SSD Upgrades | lenovo | thinkpad | ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 | Crucial IN

Crucial P2 1TB drive @ Amazon IN - Looking for below 10k, but this add extra 4k.

QLCs should be 20% cheaper than budget TLC SSD. Not sure about racket.

Don't know about tie-ups, But I used their compatibility tool to get RAM for my Dell XPS and it worked for me.

Guys what all laptops are expected in april? I know that tuf a15 5800h 3060 is coming this month for 105k.
Scar 15 5800h 3070 fhd is available for 154k.
Between those price points what all reliable units will be coming?
And If buying this month should still go with 4800h/2060 omen?

Do you guys think gigabyte a7 will come to India?

Can't say for sure because of silicon shortage. Acer Nitro 5 with R5 5600H + 3060 80W is available for 95k, seems good.

Gigabyte laptops aren't likely coming, if it does, its recommendations will be low like MSI laptops in India because of poor after sales.

Gigabyte aero 15 oled is the only thing worthwhile and that too if you get i7 10870h but most likely it will feature 2060 only. G series and A series no clue. It would be great if we can get the a7 here even if its 5600h and 3060.
G5 3060 is a good laptop based on international reviews.

The thing is if you are getting r5 5600h and 3060 that laptop may very well have 8gb ram only. Then you go back to square 1 waiting for 16gb variant. That is same issue with 4600h legion 5. In that case zephyrus g14 is making more sense especially now when almost all models have come with qhd screen.

The 105k tuf a15 2021 might be an 8gb ram one so well have to upgrade it right away. After that we have the scar 15 154k witch is 300hz panel and when I asked for the 165hz wqhd my local rog exclusive store says we ourselves don't know anything about it.
But don't get me wrong that 300hz one has a 5800h with 3070 8gb and upgradable upto 64gb ram the only trade of is 100srgb vs 100 dcpi colour accuracy which a common buyer won't require.

Strix g17 doesn't offer a wqhd but it should be a better fhd option than the scar as it will cost less. But Iwas unable to find it.

The last time I checked Gigabyte weren't selling any laptops in India.
The north india rep of gigabyte told me in dec that laptops should arrive early feb but yesterday they said that due to the global chip shortage the launch has delayed. I have asked them to give some date lets see if they respond.

I see cost cutting or just victim of global chip shortage.

Yes but currently it seems to be the best option at its price, right? Except maybe for gamers/heavy usage cases where H version is must, I see no competition to this model. Asus ones don't even have IPS screen while Lenovo has soldered ram in many ryzen models & HP is still costlier(talking about ragular non-gaming/non-H version processor models here).

This will be a better choice for a few thousands more.

How about this one? It has 1650ti.

Laptop chassis is the main concern, i.e. build quality & most importantly thermals. But specs are capable, might be fine since 1650Ti is a 50W GPU. You might be able to undervolt the CPU with throttlestop, Bob of all trades has guides on how to do it.

@SaiyanGoku @omega44-xt which is better for an android studio like software which depends heavily on processor & ram, a ryzen 5500u or a 3550H.
5500U would be better hands down. It's faster in terms of both single core and multi core. Has more cores and far better power rating even. So I'd definitely go for it. Android Studio is highly CPU intensive and really helped by additional cores.
