Hi

I need help around a new computer purchase that will be used primarily for general use and occassional photoshop
Primarily looking for a laptop that should last for atleast 4-5 years in terms of configuration

The basic details are provided below.

1) What is your budget? (INR or USD)
Around 25,000. Can go up/down by another 2k

2) What size & weight consideration (if any) would you prefer?
Mainstream; 15" - 16" screen


3) What are the primary tasks you will be performing with this notebook?
The laptop will primarily be used for general use like surfing/movies/music/light gaming
Occasional Photoshop (but not full time use)


5) Any typical configuration in your mind you're eying for ?
looking for Core i3 at the minimum. confused around teh difference between 4th gen and 5th genin terms of performance
4 GB RAM and 500 GB HDD

4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
a. Like:Dell, HP
b. Dislike: Acer, Asus, etc


6) Anything else you would like to say?
Battery back up ( normal (3-4hrs)
Purchase place ( Online for reputed seller or Offline)
Primarily looking for a laptop that should last for atleast 4-5 years in terms of configuration

Also, a closing question. I will primarily be using the laptop at home only. SO would I be better placed to go for a desktop with the same specifications. If yes, what woul dbe the benefit cost/performance of a similar spec desktop over the laptop?

Cheers
Punit

Oh...
All 3 will run photoshop without problems

Thanks... I found the below configs, kindly comment on the same.

Both specs are pretty much the same with Dell being a bit cheaper

I read reviews about dell where it is said that the display is not that good.. what is your comment on the same?
