Yes its a ge series apache pro from 2017 its not charging. Either the battery or the brick might be dead.
I took it to regenersis in 2019 for cleaning and reapplying the thermal paste. Now googling regenersis shows they have shut shop and msi service locator shows a different vendor in siddhartha building in NP.
You can remove battery and use directly from laptop charger.

Get HP Victus or Lenovo Ideapad 3 with R5 5600H + RTX 3050 instead. 144Hz isn't worth it over having a much more powerful GPU as you can add an ext monitor for a better display but have to change laptop realistically for a better GPU.

Or this for 144Hz panel:

What about ergonomics, build quality, thermals etc? Are these a good option over Legion/Omen? And are these panels super substandard?

Legion & Omen are a tier above. Cheapest Omen worth buying is last year's model with R5 4600H + 1660Ti for over 80k, but has a poor 60Hz display.

New Ideapad 3 has vents on both sides, so I think they redesigned the fan layout to have one on each side, should be good for 75W RTX 3050. Check the older model's review by Jarrod Tech.

Asus tuf a17, r5 4600 was available for 59k and 63k on flipkart. Went out of stock in minutes.

I have a small doubt -
intel 10500h ~ 2.5 ghz to 4.5 ghz
ryzen 5 4600h ~ 3ghz to 4ghz.

WRT “mild”single core tasks, Will there be a slight lag in intel because it starts at 2.5, and ryzen is already at 3ghz.?

I went to a few Asus stores, they don’t have stock of the cheaper 17 inch laptops. Can’t see these on the Asus website too. Also Msi gf75 listed on Amazon, isn’t mentioned on their website.

what could be the reason ? Are these out of production models, and ecom websites have older stock ?

Cheers. What about Nitro 5 with Intel i7-11800H and 3050Ti? If I'm good for it money-wise, does it beat all of the above?
