6) Anything else you would like to say?

I'm currently torn between these two:
Asus GL552VW ROG Series CN430T 90NB09I3-M05050 Core i7 (6th Gen) - (16 GB DDR4/1 TB HDD/Windows 10/4 GB Graphics) Notebook vs Dell Inspiron 7000 7559 Y567501HIN9 Intel Core i5 (6th Gen) - (8 GB DDR3/1 TB HDD/Windows 10/4 GB Graphics) Notebook: Compare Computers: Flipkart.co

I'm planning to get Dell from FK itself .... Asus one from Paytm, 88k after cashback

Advantages of Dell over Asus:
- Slimmer, looks decent (Asus one is too aggressive looking)
- Better battery life
- Better after sales
- Better heat dissipation due to dual fans & lower temps too
- Better speakers

Advantages of Asus over Dell:
- Better specs: CPU, screen, HDD, SSD, RAM
- 2 years warranty

OK, on paper Asus seems better but I have doubts regarding its after sales support. My current laptop started giving serious problems after 3 years, so I expect good reliability & after sales support when I'm investing such a huge amount.

Help me in deciding. I will buy within next 2 weeks

Also does anyone know about the cost of extended warranty for Dell & Asus? I'm open to other options too

Asus GL552VW seems to be better than Dell Inspiron 7559.
Asus provides international warranty, the number of service centers are low, but they are there and service is good.

I had purchased Dell Inspiron 7559 as my second and primary gaming laptop, and I was not disappointed at all.

Comparing the two,
Dell has plastic build, there is some flex in the screen and also the keyboard, Asus has full metal.
Dell is compact and lighter than Asus
Reviews suggested that Dell 7559 had bad display, mostly because of low brightness, but I found the display to be good, not sure of Asus.
Better CPU, RAM, HDD, SSD option on Asus for ~5k more sounds well worth it.

I would say, Asus for gaming.

ASUS model costs ₹94,000
How can you compare it Dell which is a ₹84,000 laptop

Just considering my options...

Only thing that is holding me from finalizing Asus is its after sales. As its CPU & GPU crosses 80C on heavy loads, I think it would get hotter after a year or two (My Y500 crosses 90C now, after 3 years)

Samsung 850 evo is better than its competitors, that's why I opted for that. But sadly there's no 128GB version in India. Ordered 250GB one at 8k

There's a Transcend one at 5k, 128GB, which seems good for the price

I'll post a review if I get time

I finally got my laptop yesterday.

The laptop is good, just that it doesn't have backlit keyboard which I was kind of hoping to get, even though FK, Paytm n other websites in India doesn't mention that it has one

The screen is okay, it seems better than the one in Y500 due to anti glare coating.
Speakers are not upto the mark even though it is a 2.1 system. Its similar to the 2.0 JBL speakers of Y500

The laptop gets a bit warm in the area below arrow keys but it isn't uncomfortable. It happens while gaming. MGS5 TPP ran at 1080p at high settings (extra high is the max setting) at above 50fps. Otherwise the laptop is cool, much cooler than Y500. Also the temp in my area is 40C

I'll post a bit detailed review afterwards.

I'm still waiting for my SSD

Congrats on your purchase.

Also, where did you sell your old laptop?
I'm planning to sell my HP 15-E038TX, I requested a quote from Atterobay and Reglobe and both were low compared to appraisal from local store.

I posted ad in OLX n quikr
Finally sold it to a guy at 26k one month after posting the ad (It had a few problems, that's why sold it)

Post an ad & see how much people are willing to pay for it

Getting backlit keyboard is sometimes a problem as they are mostly not available. Same was the case when I had purchased, laptop with backlit keyboard was not available from official store as well. It is better to confirm from seller or customer care regarding this.

For that price I would have opted for Asus instead of MSI, if I could have spent 85k+
