    thanks buddy. Asus model has a 2gb graphics card. how much it is going to affect? hp does not has it and for approx. 5000 more it offers i5. i hope asus model should easily last for over 2 years.
    what is your opinion?
    also, should we consider lenovo / compaq also?
    i am planning to look for lenovo /compaq models for smaller typing work which I asked in the other thread.

    If you are not a gamer then gfx card should not affect your decision,i5 8th gen(a quad core) on the other hand is quite fast compared to 7th gen i3(a dual core).If your current work is not that much cpu dependent then even a 7th gen i3 is good enough for you.Asus is giving 2 years warranty so it will last that long in any case.

    For your other thread I already suggested a lenovo model & in that range there aren't much options anyway.

    ^^ it looks like they removed it recently.. it was there a month ago last time i checked.. with 5 % hdfc offer ...link is still showing up in google search also..

    since this warranty extension offer is available for most HP laptops , it is likely that this offer is available for this laptop also if he buys from HP authorised offline store..
    OP call/email hp and ask them..

    This hp146tu is available in hp store here and the offer is also available but my time frame for the purchase has changed and it will be next month most likely.
    The other laptop that I already bought is for a different purpose.
    Thanks everyone to the reply.

    I think it's around 42k which they offred. the price they said is 44990.
    15 March is the last date for offer of extended warranty. After that it's some 4-4.5k.
    anyways, I will not be buying it that soon so will check models again when I am ready to buy.
    Thanks for the help.

    No extra. Need to buy before 15th to get the offer and then pay 2300 more for the extra warranty.

    So what do you get for this extra 2300,1 year warranty with ADP or 1 year extra warranty over & above the standard 1 year warranty(total 2 years then).

    What is the best model right now? Which brand? Lenovo offers ADP which I think no other brand is offering.
    Someone might finance it and the budget may go up to 40000 or 50000. Fingers crossed.

    Vendor has said that there is one Lenovo ideapad silver laptop model having i5 8th gen 8gb 1tb win 10 full HD. Price offered is 39300. He doesn't remember the model number and said it will be there soon. I have not been able to find any such model in their website. So waiting for it.
    Will check it out when it is delivered there.
