<b>1) What is your budget? </b>(INR or USD)<br />
<br />60k
<br />
<b>3) What are the primary tasks you will be performing with this notebook? </b><br />
<br />gaming
<br />
<b>5) Any typical configuration in your mind you're eying for ?</b><br />
<br />yeah, was looking for a DOS one rather than windows. Will save him some money on the OS as he doesn't care if the OS is original or not.
<br />
<b>4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?</b><br />
<br />none
<br />
<b>6) Anything else you would like to say?</b><br />
My friend's going to college and he needs a laptop. Currently he has a C2D and he never had a gaming config, PC or Laptop. He needs a laptop just for gaming and nothing else. Nothing specific in his mind other than gaming.
I was thinking to get him an i5 + GTX950M + 4GB RAM, if possible. (RAM can be upgraded so 4GB+ is not much of necessity right now. Also a 720p one would be preferred as mobile GPUs are not that powerful. Lastly, he needs this laptop to last for 4 years and that is a necessity.
<br/>

Thanks

I too will advice aganist buying seller warranty laptops. Laptops are prone to get problems more than desktops (especially if you game on it)

I will advice getting the Asus ROG one from Paytm, as you will get upto 10k cashback, if offer is available. It costs 72-73k. I have bought my current laptop from Paytm, so yeah its a good way to save money.

There's another Asus laptop with GTX950M at 65k, R510JX. But it doesn't have any detailed reviews online.

Also 1080p screen is always better, because for newer games you can always lower the resolution to 768p or 720p

Friend's dad won't let him buy online. We tried to convince him but all in vain. Until and unless there's a 1080p laptop with 950M in 60-65k range not going for 1080p.

That's bad.... Then Asus R510JX might be the only option with 950M in that budget available in stores

Where and which ROG model?
 
ROG R510JXDM230T.

That's the one I mentioned :p

It's R doesn't stand for ROG

ZTR has clearly mentioned all the differences, except for the fact that officially the ROG has Windows in India. Also most probably its cooling & screen quality would be a bit inferior compared to ROG GL552JX

Anyways congrats

Oh well

Friend went to find. He has decided he's going to buy it. Can't do anything now. That's the best and the cheapest one available offline. Still there's not much difference.

That's some desperate marketing... Anyways it is the best option offline... Post a small review if possible with temperatures while gaming (use HWMonitor for temp)

See its listed here

Also he bought it. Final price he got was 62k with a free Logitech mouse. He hasn't done any heavy work on it till now. Just copying and installing. He did say it lagged while installing games.

In Asus website its not in ROG section + all ROG laptops have red backlit keyboard & ROG logo, its like a trademark

It lagged because of HDD as the drive is undergoing read & write operation + OS is running (Installing game from a different media will help speed up the process a bit)
