Hi All,

My question is which one to buy among the two?


HP ENVY Touch 15-k008TX
(Price 65 K approx)

It has touch screen
16GB DDR3 ram(more)
8gb ssd
i7 4510

ASUS ROG GL552JX
(Price 60 K approx)
No Touch screen(NA)
4GB DDR3
No SSD(NA)
i7 4720(superior)


I am not a gamer. Basically I need a high performing system with very good multitasking & ability to run multiple high memory consuming apps without any issues.

I have a max budget of 70-75K.

I also looked into Y50-70. Ignoring it because of poor display & cost of 75-80k

Seniors, Please advise.

Regards,
PrasOnWeb

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback.

Can you please explain why?

On ebay listing ASUS ROG 552JX has only 4gb ram.

Whereas HP Envy Touch 15-k008TX has 16 gb ram, touchscreen & ssd as well.

You have confused the processors, the asus one has i7-4720 and the hp one has i7-4510u

Asus is definitely better. No comparison tbh

RAM is user upgradable, touchscreen is a gimmick for anything >10" and 8 GB ssd is a joke :lol:

ULV i7s are just higher clocked ULV i5s. Plus it has 840M. All this makes the HP one worth less than 50k.

Many Thanks SaiyanGoku. You have made my decision easier. I was also leaning towards ASUS ROG GL552JX-DM087D. some questions
1) can SSD be added to ASUS ROG GL552JX-DM087D . I can buy a 124 ggb ssd & add it even if costs extra. Will it's motherbord support adding another drive(ssd) - meaning does it have m-sata ports?
2) Does ASUS ROG GL552JX-DM087D comes with a cd for Windows 8.1 in case I need to reinstall the OS or use the additional SSD for booting purposes?
3) How much Ram is supported by ASUS ROG GL552JX-DM087D
4) I am a programmer & not a gamer at all. I mainly work on Visual Studio with multiple instances. I don't need much of graphics but high processing capabilities & multitasking. I looked into Azom Exigo as well. It has 6gd dr5 graphics(not at all required by me). It is gonna cost approx 100K. Its seems an overkill for me. If necessary, I can spend the money but do not think worth it. What do you think?
I had lenovo y50 earlier which got stolen(which is why, i am looking for a new laptop). but the screen was horrible.

If you have anything else in mind, please tell me. I would really appreciate your guidance.

1. Probably yes by replacing the DVD Drive. Don't know if it has M2 or M.sata ports.
2. Nope. No OEM provides a DVD these days. :( You can however use any untouched windows 8.1 ISOs to re-install windows.
3. 16 GB
4. The CPU is same so consider it only if you want to play recent and future games fluently at FHD resolution.

If you don't require portability, consider getting an assembled desktop instead. It'll be much better for your needs.

Thanks SaiyanGoku.

Portability is must as I might have to travel.

Any other suggestions?

This 60k with some eBay coupons is such a great deal.

Please clarify:
1. 4gB or 2gB gtx950m
2. 2yrs warranty in India
3. Original bill provided
4. Does this model have an optical drive? <this can be replaced with an ssd>
5. It has an m2 80mm port(no pcie, only sata3), for some reason asus website says a max of 256gB, why?

Thanks

Don't buy from there.

At Paytm u can get Indian version for 63k.
In Ebay coupons won't apply as it's handpicked deal.

Comparision betwn imported and Indian version-
1. TN panel vs IPS display
2.4GB vs 8GB RAM
3.Free Dos vs Windows 8.1
4.1 year Global vs 1 year global + 2 year Asus Back 2 School warranty

Only 1 point is 4 GB VRAM on imported but it hardly matters.

At paytm u can get it for 70k -9k(Casbback) =63k

So u cant buy these stuff in 3 k right
-IPS Panel -10k
-4 GB Ram -2k
-Windows 8.1 -4-6k
-Warranty-4-5k

So better buy from Paytm seller is authorised officially by Asus.

I bought from Garg. And I regret.Should have waited.
NVM doesn't matter.

Update
M.2 SSD is a SATA formfactor dont buy PCIE ones.
Decent 128 GB Samsung 850 Evo or Crucial MX200 or even the cheap MyDigital one's will do.

You need to import them from US.
Buy whatever is cheap as there isn't probable speed difference.

Always check which company provides warranty.

128 GB is far better as HDD is 7200RPM so it's good enough.

Cashback as in they will refund 9k in your paytm wallet which you can use in further transactions or billing,etc.

Great. No regrets now as long as warranty works here :p Anything can be done for the Thai text on the keyboard. If i have to change the keyboard or the keys how much its gonna cost me ?

Also i have some queries in another thread. If you can reply to that it would be great. (link)
