For 6th gen i5 processor & full HD screen that laptop is good but graphics wise it is disappointing(but then almost all laptops in India are at this price range).R5 M430 is entry level graphics card a bit more powerful than integrated intel HD graphics 520 on the processor.If performance is the only criterion then one can get a much cheaper laptop with i5 configuration,fit it with ssd,& it will leave any 50k laptop far behind in terms of performance.

What about the display quality? HP 15-ay503tx doesn't seem to have IPS panel, which means it's viewing angles are bad. Any good laptop that have IPS panel, even if it means sacrificing fHD?

I highly recommend the Dell Inspiron 3558 to anyone else looking for a laptop. Just saw this yesterday. It comes with an i5 2.5-2.75Ghz, Nvidia GeForce 2gb 920m gpu, 1tb hdd, 8gb ram, 15.6" screen.

It's going for Rs48,000 at Croma. I might purchase this laptop next week.

Also, There's a special on the MacBook Air at Vijay Sales. It's currently going for only Rs 63,000. I say "only" because that's cheap for mac, lol.

Nothing special in that Dell Inspiron 3558 that justifies spending 48k,overpriced at best for a 5th gen i5(has not even 2 usb 3.0 ports,a basic). At least HP gives Full HD screen at this price range,not to mention a 6th gen i5.

It has tons of issues. The CPU gets stuck at freaking 498Mhz. It has happened to 2 different Dell 3558 (google it, it seems like common issue with dell).

Dell laptops will throttle down cpu speed if non-dell adapter is detected(or your official dell adapter is not being detected properly). For those who don't know,there is an identification chip in Dell adapters as well as laptops which communicate with each other via the small pin in middle of adapter charging cable pin that connects to adapter port on laptop for authenticating adapter as official dell. If this identification fails for whatever reason(damaged pin,damaged cable,damaged chip etc or using non-dell adapter), the cpu of dell laptop will operate at much reduced frequency. This is one of the reason why one should take very good care of dell adapters.

Thats so freaking stupid. Add DRM to everything and ruin it. It's the end user who has to suffer, and most people can't differentiate between fake and genuine adapters. Just because they cannot solve an issue, they shift the problem to the end user. And most of the times genuine adapter users will suffer like in my case (heck the adapter came inside the box).

This has been the way of Dell for a long time(I personally saw this back in 2009). Though Dell laptops should give you a warning popup saying unrecognized adapter detected.Still for confirmation, just restart laptop & go into bios menu with adapter plugged in & it should clearly show adapter name & watt(e.g.Dell 65W & not "unrecognized/unknown").
