Why have you mentioned an i5 laptop when you need i7 ? 
And whats your budget?It'd be better if you fill the questionnaire.

Sorry by mistake i have written wrong specs.
My budget is 45-52k

Code:
Consider this Asus K53SV-SX521D
Better than both the laptops you have listed above in every aspect
Thanks, i also own "asus 1215b" but 3 times i have replaced its display once hdd and finally laptop is been replaced once so not good experience with it. so want to experience another brand.

Then go and try out sony laptops, but in sony if you want i7 it will cost you much more than the above mentioned laptops.
And even if you consider Dell XPS laptops with i7, they will also cost you more than above mentioned laptops.As XPS with i7 costs around 60k
I don't recommend to go for hp or lenovo laptop.

Z570 has got some negative feedbacks regarding built and quality components. If i5, look no where excpet CB35. See my sig for its review. Also, take HP as last option. I said just because rest of the options were not falling in your budget.

But CB35 is discontinued now.He will get only CB45 and even that is gonna take exit from the market now very soon

@OP-if you get a CB35 is some local showroom then just grab it

No issues,after we are human beings and if we will not to mistakes then who will do... ;)

Thanks, i also own "asus 1215b" but 3 times i have replaced its display once hdd and finally laptop is been replaced once so not good experience with it. so want to experience another brand.
Even if I would be at your place I would have gone for some other brand.
So now even I want you to buy something other than Asus.
So if you wan the best laptop which is worth and that too you are getting it from you first salary then I would suggest you to get Dell XPS or any Sony C series laptop which you like,just tell us the model no. and we will tell you more info about the same.
Or I can tell you one thing more also, if you can increase your budget you can also have a look at Macbook Pro 13" from ebay for 60k.

:)

After all we buy laptops every month for someone or the other and sony has come with new laptops which are costlier then their previous models also.And we know much better which is good and which is bad. :)
