R7 4800H is easily the best CPU under 70k, so get that IMO. You will likely not get a good laptop with 100% sRGB 7-8ms panel at that price, so live with the 65% sRGB 144Hz 15-18ms panel that you get commonly.

Two weeks ago, I remember seeing a R7 4800H + 3050 Asus G15 for close to 70k, seems OOS now.

HDMI, its cheaper. You don't gain anything by using DP via Type C.

What are the best vfm laptop options available in stock right now. Helios 300 11th gen 3060 is oos right now.
Any worthwhile 5800h options? My requirement is for content creation and 3d rendering and occasional gaming.
Budget is as close to 100k possible.

Maybe HP Victus with R7 + 3060 because of that R7 (seems OOS as well).

Guys I am deciding between following Two Ryzen 5500u laptops so please let me know which is better in terms of Built Quality, Battery life, Service & Support.

ASUS VivoBook Ultra Ryzen 5 Hexa Core 5500U - (8 GB/512 GB SSD/Windows 10 Home) KM413UA-EB502TS Thin and Light Laptop Rs.73990 Price in India - Buy ASUS VivoBook Ultra Ryzen 5 Hexa Core 5500U - (8 GB/512 GB SSD/Windows 10 Home) KM413UA-EB502TS Thin and Light Laptop Indie Black Online - ASUS : Flipkart.com

&



I will be exchanging my old Asus P2430U [Intel Core i5 6200, 8GB Ram + 1TB HDD] & flipkart is offering Rs.10450/- for it. Is the exchange price okay or I should sell it outside as the condition & physical appearance is good.
I am more inclined to MSI as its 15 incher and has dedicated extra ram as well as SSD slot but I am not sure of their services within Maharashtra[I am mostly in Mumbai but will be travelling within Maharashtra]

I had gr8 experience with Asus business series laptop, Vivobook is costly but I can avail the asus offers & has Microsoft office built in. I am not sure if there is dedicated slots for Additional Ram & SSD.

Thanks in Advance.

I am not sure if it's better than ryzen 5500u. I want better battery backup, extra expandable ram and ssd slot & best possible in lesser price.
I was very much keen on ryzen 5500u and do not really need performance oriented device as such but if core i5 11th gen is extra ordinary or substantially better to ryzen 5500u in terms of graphics as well as performance then I might consider it.
Currently it's offered @55k

i'm not implying its very much better than the ryzen option , intel evo series has good battery life requirements ,( which is substantial for lightweights) also another requirement is 4hrs of battery life within 30 minutes charging or so , usb-c charging is available ,etc hence i suggested u to look into evo series laptops
 
R5 5500U has better performance & battery life compared to i5 1135G7. Unless you are into gaming or get a great deal on an Intel laptop, prefer Ryzen 4000/5000 series for laptops.

So then msi alpha 15 fhd @ 109k instead of helios 300 qhd 3050ti?
I am doubtful about the ram ranking used in the alpha as previous advantage edition have shown performance issues.
10th gen helios is also 99.9k should i go with that ? Its tgp is higher as well.

Why consider 3050Ti vs 6600M when 3060 laptops exist? Main reason to get 3060, even at 100W is DLSS + RT (not much of RT) and secondary reason would be to avoid MSI.

acer Predator Helios 300 Octa Core i7 10th Gen - (16 GB/1 TB HDD/256 GB SSD/Windows 10 Home/6 GB Graphics/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060/144 Hz) PH315-53 Gaming Laptop Rs.149990 Price in India - Buy acer Predator Helios 300 Octa Core i7 10th Gen - (16 GB/1 TB HDD/256 GB SSD/Windows 10 Home/6 GB Graphics/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060/144 Hz) PH315-53 Gaming Laptop Black Online - acer : Flipkart.com

Acer increases the TGP of multiple NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series gaming laptops by up to 30 W
This is easily the best choice because of the 115W 3060 + 100% sRGB display + a good cooling solution. Its CPU can be undervolted. Invest 7k & get 2nd 16GB RAM stick as it has 1x16GB in it. You can add a 2nd SSD later & IMO buy 2 years of the extended warranty, usually, 8k w/o offers, a friend of mine got it for 2k. That CPU isn't as good as i7 11800H or R7 5800H, but is easily a great choice for gaming.
