To each their own, but for those budget laptops, HP 14 has IPS panel + backlit KB over even HP's 15" model.
Yes & that's why I always ask ppl to first decide on screen size because for someone fine with 14" screen has many more options to choose from compared to 15.6" screen nowadays. I still remember acer 15.6" model with ryzen 2200u, 256gb ssd & ips screen selling for around 38k before corona lockdown.

Hello Experts & Knowledgeable members;

One quick que,

  • A system Intel 8750H + 2 x 8GB DDR4-2666 / PC4 - 21300 can take 2 x 16GB DDR4-3200 / PC4 - 25600 module ?
  • Is it going to be a complete rejection? or run at a lower speed?

As per the official spec above machine can go 32GB @ 2666 MHz.

Assuming that you're swapping out the 2666Mhz memory for the 3200Mhz kit. Well, if this were a PC, then you could easily do away with higher frequencies. However, with proprietary motherboards from OEMs (like Dell, Lenovo, etc.) used in laptops, there are no promises that it will work fine. It should be down clocked to 2666Mhz, but you should expect some BSODs and system instability. Check with your laptop vendor before purchase. Crucial has a memory compatibility tool, consider checking that as well.

1. Yes, in 99.9% cases
2. Will run at 2666 as 8th gen laptops were all limited to 2666, no XMP in most laptops

Edit: For point 1, all Intel laptops supporting 2933MHz RAM actually use 3200MHZ RAM sticks as no one bothered to manufacture 2933 as 3200 was being by AMD & Intel was eventually going to use DDR4 3200, which it did in 12th gen. AFAIK, these days you can get DDR4 2400, 2666 & 3200 sticks for laptops.

If max supported ram is 32gb then it should run at DDR4-2666 while using DDR4-3200 modules but wait for others to also confirm.

Thank You all for the reply, My thought was exactly like DestGod SaiyanGoku's reply - That Laptop will not boot - A Complete rejection..... but this time whitestar_999 & omega44-xt both are right, Even the above post let me go further....Everything worked perfectly.

Earlier with 2 x 8GB 2667 (PC4 - 21300) module

Now with 2 x 16GB 3200 (PC4 - 25600) module as window Task Manger detects it 2667 Module

Avoid both. Look for deals on Legion 5 with R7 5800H + 3060. Ryzen 6000 is like 5% faster than 5000 series, so not a big jump. Legion 5 has excellent build & thermals. My friend bought Legion 5 with QHD panel for 118k back in May, it went to as low as 112k with card offers on amazon after that.

This is the model, maybe it will drop to 120k or lower again.

This GP66 has a full-power 3070, not sure how much a better GPU will benefit you though:
MSI GP66 Leopard Core i7 11th Gen - (16 GB/1 TB SSD/Windows 10 Home/8 GB Graphics/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070/144 Hz) GP66 Leopard 11UG-693IN Gaming Laptop Rs.173990 Price in India - Buy MSI GP66 Leopard Core i7 11th Gen - (16 GB/1 TB SSD/Windows 10 Home/8 GB Graphics/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070/144 Hz) GP66 Leopard 11UG-693IN Gaming Laptop Black Online - MSI : Flipkart.com
It's cons are MSI's after sales & lower battery life compared to Ryzen devices. It has UV support in BIOS, so helps with tweaking it.

Need a laptop for basic editing ( don't intend to play game ) newbie, no prior experience of editing. want to edit video for YouTube (travel vlog).
How much should I set budget & which components should I look for? Is 70k will be suffice? Please suggest

If you want to prioritise portability & screen quality with decent performance, then this is good, goes for 70k usually for 512GB, 72k for 1TB SSD, will likely be cheaper in upcoming sales:
https://www.amazon.in/dp/B09M41GR4K/
It has a 100% sRGB panel, which helps for creative works.

For serious performance, get this:
https://www.amazon.in/HP-7-5800H-Processor-Graphics-16-E0351ax/dp/B09LM3RZ1Q/
Has 100% sRGB display with far superior GPU & better CPU.

The 12th gen CPUs are faster indeed, but need very good cooling to do that. Also neither Predator nor Asus ones are as well built as Legion 5 IMO, so will pick a well built laptop when spending over 1 lakh:

Which One will help in smooth 4k editing? (Mainly Promotional AD creation) actually I tried a 40 sec AD in 4k 16:9 on my Old Pc and I couldn't even run PremierePro (even a mouse drag crashed the system) so I am concerned about the future works ( larger files ) in 4k.

Check for detailed reviews for CPU performance. Anyways, wait for sale to begin & let's see what deals we get. Wait till next week.

As I said, the 12th gen CPUs are faster indeed, but need very good cooling to perform well.
