There's peace of mind offer on Acer's website mentioning accidental damage protection + 2year extended warranty worth 12k for 2.8k.
So that brings us to 108k but the are not providing a bag and delivery date estimate is 9th May.
Legion 5 shows 2 year extended warranty and a basic bag for around 4k. That will be 116k. And it says ships in 2 days. They have mentioned in the description that ram is not upgradable.
You would be better served buying a laptop bag separately from a manufacturer of repute instead of buying an expensive laptop bundled with a cheap laptop bag carrying an inflated MRP.

If you can afford a laptop that costs over 100k INR, don't skimp on a high quality bag that costs a fair bit. A good bag will serve you over the life of more than one laptop while offering you protective features not found on cheap bags which the manufacturers bundle to boost sales. You should look for waterproofing, padding to handle abuse and any frills that you might need on a regular basis, plus aesthetics and style that you prefer.

Also, bags are like leather shoes. Cheap shoes and expensive shoes will look the same to an uninitiated buyer at a store, but the long term, the expensive stuff (at least from a "real" shoemaker and not a fashion brand) will last your lifetime while also being resoleable while the cheap stuff will break apart within a few years of wear.

That isn't to say you should get the stuff discounted from MRP when you can, because MRPs are often inflated, but for the love of god, don't leave an expensive consumer-grade laptop at the mercy of a cheap bag.

I did not mean to say it is bundled with the laptop. It is actually a suggested buy along with the extended warranty.
I agree about investing in a good quality bag.
Other than targus what other bag brands will you suggest, I feel up to 3k is decent budget for a bag not going over that.
Here's the offering:

Both have upgradeable RAM, 2 slots. Maybe get a good American Tourister or Skybag bag for 1.5-2k. Usually bag provided with laptops are small.

For the legion 5 it is mentioned in the description on Amazon that the ram is not upgradable.

For bags I like few of these, any other suggestions?

Hi guys,
I'm new here, and so far I like what I see.
I'm in need of a basic laptop. Was looking for one, but got blasted with so many options, that it had me confused.
So here I am, looking for your advice.

My requirements:
AMD Ryzen 3 Processor
RAM amount does not matter, as long as it is upgradable
Integrated graphics will do, I need this for office purposes only
NVME SSD and HDD, must have both options, but does not necessarily have to come with both installed
Must have decent battery life

Price range is a bit low, like Rs. 30K to 35K INR. The budget is low because I am building a gaming rig. The laptop I need is only for office purposes.

Please help.

Any idea when the new Legion 5 Pro will launch ? It seems like a great laptop with one of the best screens I've seen in a gaming laptop

Many people were complaining about nitro 5 qhd not being good enough as the 90w gpu wont be able to drive the 2k screen. So how in the world can these 45w and 70w units drive 4k uhd+ screens?
Driving the screen is a simple task handled by a very specific set of hardware routines which is standard across units. Either your unit can or it can't run a specific set of signals.

Rendering and outputting frames computed for a game or some other GPU shader-using software in real time is a different manner entirely. This stage happens before that hardware routine.

Someone claimed in YouTube comments today that the g14 1650ti is better than the 2060 in a15 as they have both laptops and there is only 10% difference.
Do you guys think that could be true?

Could be, nvidia has done a cluster fuck with laptop GPUs. TDP matters more than anything.
Atleast in the old days, same GPUs used to deliver similar performance

Not possible. A15 surely has heating issue but it's not so bad that an 80W RTX 2060 will throttle down to 50W 1650Ti level.

I can consider if someone said 2060 performs like 1660Ti as those 2 are very close.
