Just realized that both the one i posted and ur suggestion the expandable memory is limited to 8 GB RAM...16GB ram expand ability is a key feature.

Also the touchpad is not good in this one it seems.
infact Lenovo IdeaPad 500S-14ISK 80Q3005AIN was very good but only thing came to know that RAM is limited to 8GB as it has one slot.

I am wondering whether there is any model till 60K which meets following requirements

1. 14 inch preferably
2. expandability to 16GB ram
3. Full HD or atleast 1600 by 900
4. i5 6th gen or i7 5th gen if not 6th gen
6. 2gb graphics not a gamer but would like to have some graphics rather than integrated one

- - - Updated - - -

also could someone confirm i believe that 1366 x 768 pixels resolution would be somewhat uncomfortable for a laptop as less screen space would be available.

- - - Updated - - -

The reason i am so scared of lenovo 15 inch model is because my last purchase of 80NT00PAIN

Lenovo Ideapad 500 Intel i7 Laptop
80NT00PAIN

the mousepad / tocuhpad left right click buttons are so hard and useless that i cannot use laptop without a mouse externally attached? attached screenshot.

finally i am inclined to buy

HP Pavilion 15-ab215TX 15.6-inch Laptop (Core i7 6500U/8GB/1TB/Windows 10/Nvidia Geforce 940M Graphics), Blizzard White

Instead of buying I'll suggest you to buy this one it has i7 4th quad core processor but hp one has low powered dual core which is of no match with dual core and it has better graphic card 950m and even it has m.2 ssd slot and excellent display by the way TouchPad is sort of above average not to good not so bad

It has 10k Cashback so net price only 63k
 
[MENTION=322153]sunandoghosh1[/MENTION] : If you are not a gamer, there's no need for dedicated GPU. Internal one is good enough for every other requirements.

Fill the questionnaire

You can definitely buy the Asus GL552JX from Paytm, if you want

Why do you want 16GB RAM?? There's no need for it. 8GB RAM is more than enough for almost everything

I have felt it when we use multiple apps simultaneously like torrent, audacity, sql server, vmware etc, multiple firefox instances... I dont want to buy from paytm... Cant afford my 60k to go wrong this is last bit of money I can invest.... For next 1-2 years...

Thanks Bro but i do not have that much risk appetite (even though its very less may be) given my current situation.
I cant buy from ebay paytm now. Amazon reputed sellers like cloudtail and similar are ok with me.

Finally I am almost seem to be going for HP model.
Reason:

Full HD display with IPS
(what really matters to me is atleast 1600 by 900 resolution)

8GB Ram which can be upgraded

Hard disk can be later swapped for SSD

Optical drive i can later on use as second bay for second hard disk with hd bay

graphics is decent and should fulfill any unknown average requirements

touchpad is not that bad it seems

accidental 1 year warranty

i7 6th gen

cant get all of these within 70k in india (excluding ebay paytm etc)

HP World

Geonet IT Mall Pvt Ltd Shop No 5, Mansarovar Bldg, SV Rd
Santa Cruz West
Mumbai - 400055 Opp. Vijay Sales +912226463333

However they did not had model HP Pavilion 15-ab215TX 15.6-inch Laptop for even display...the condition was to buy the piece in sealed condition...i just wanted to have a few minutes hands on for touchpad...and right left click on touchpad as thats the biggest issue i have suffered in lenovo model i purchased.

DO you have any idea of any other shop in Mumbai where such laptops can be tried hands on or are on demo for display?

While gaming, most laptops in this price would heat up, otherwise it should run cool

Asus doesn't have service centres everywhere like HP has, but I never heard many complaints (Then not many people have a Asus laptop). Asus is a good brand. Moreover that model has a M.2 slot for an additional SSD, which will surely come in handy

Asus has service center in all metros.. check wheather service center is present in your locality in Asus website... and by the above mentioned Asus rog gl552 is my current laptop the performance is awesome and it doesn't heat up while gaming even after a hour or so... only place u can feel the heat is on the fan......
