The Slowest One
60W is its TDP, with it running at 75W when CPU is lightly loaded, like non CPU intensive games like Witcher 3, but games like Battlefield, R6, CP2077, FarCry 5 are CPU heavy.

I think Asus G15 has full 80W RTX 3050Ti, costs 10k more.

Follow this laptop, it has been on sale for 86k a few times recently:
ASUS ROG Zephyrus M15 (2020), 15.6" FHD 240Hz/3ms, Intel Core i7-10750H 10th Gen, GTX 1660Ti 6GB Graphics, Gaming Laptop (16GB/1TB SSD/Office 2019/Windows 10/Gray/1.9 Kg), GU502LU-AZ108TS : Amazon.in: Computers & Accessories

How is this HP Omen against the one mentioned above?
4600H will help keep the temps low compared to i7-10750
Build quality of this HP Omen looks better than Asus. WHat do you guys think?

Display is the Achilles heel of the Omen. It has a 60% sRGB 60Hz display vs 100% sRGB 240Hz display of Asus. Also, Intel has a small 5% advantage over AMD, even Ryzen 5000 mobile.

If undervolting can be enabled in that Asus, you can actually tune it a lot. Build quality might be similar IMO.

hello folks. Laptop budget is 80k. coding(40%), video editing and gaming(40%). What would you suggest? Is buying a 8gb ram laptop and upgrading it to 16 gb a good idea? will there be compatibility issues.

Yes, you can buy a 8GB RAM laptop & add another 8GB stick to it. RAM compatibility issues are very rare, but yes, happens.

HP Omen with R5 4600H + 1660Ti is the go to recommendation at 80k. At times Asus M15 with i7 10750H + 1660Ti + 1080p 240Hz panel has been on sale for 86k. that's a great deal.

Need suggestion.
I want to upgrade old laptop.
Dell Inspiron D530 (core 2 duo, 1 GB, RAM, 128GB HDD etc etc)
I want to install windows 10 enterprise x64 and office 2019.
I will use this as a backup and for watching movies, songs, sometimes office 2019 work, photo slideshow, Chrome browsing. (All of this usage will be from below normal user)
I can't find manual online for compatibility and supported parts.
Which parts should I upgrade?
Please suggest compatible RAM and Hard Disk.

For such old laptop, stick to office 2003/2007 or maybe 2010 along with win 7 or 8.1 & this is assuming you at least upgrade to a cheap ssd & 2/4gb ram.

Save money & get some under 70k laptops with 1650Ti. The performance difference between 1650Ti & 1660Ti is close to 30%, so a big difference. HP Omen is 84k now, due to demand. It is definitely worth the money for gamers.

Wait for Prime Day sales (end of the month), see if any of your friends or family have an amazon CC with a high limit for that 5% cashback. Same price at FK, so FK axis CC also has 5% cashback. IF you have an ICICI or axis account for some time, apply for the CC (amazon or FK one for 5% cashback). Note that amazon CC has no annual fees but FK CC has a ₹500 annual fee (easy to collect back 500 IMO even if you don't spend on FK as many normal transactions give you 1.5% cashback).

Okay the please suggest compatible 2×2GB RAM, SSD, HDD for Dell latitude d530
DDR2 800mhz will be compatible?


Any tool, software, site to check system compatibility
Online manuals does not mention about compatible hardware or does provide compatible hardware list.

Use these tools to get detailed system info(especially ram timings):
cpu-z, speccy, HWiNFO
Any typical 2.5" sata ssd should work.

Comment suggest above has extra ram slot & NVMe ssd slot but will require HP service centre help in upgrading as opening laptop not possible without physical signs.

Pentium N6000 seems good for budget laptops, 10nm 4c/4t.

Any good laptop with 3060 available in prime day sale? I liked victus at 104k but I am sceptical about pre ordering without any reviews.
Should I grab the helios 300 from flipkart then?

I need for rendering and content creation workloads. Maybe I can compromise with a 5600h but 16gb ram , 6gb graphic card and a colour accurate screen are must.
I am trying to keep the laptop within 130k coz I need to buy a graphic tablet too which can go up to 10.5k itself.
It was really disappointing to find that the otherwise perfect 122k variant of strix g15 has a 45% ntsc screen.
