Guys, after all the suggestions finalizing this -


Thanks to all of you for the time n valuable inputs.

Cheers.
Could not buy the laptop at that time due to some family emergency.

And this lappy is around 68k now (was 61k at that time).

Just a second thought, should I go for this -


Pls suggest. Or any other good choice in touchscreen lappy around 65k. Cheers.

Get the first one because of bigger display & higher capacity SSD.

R5 4500U is more powerful but these laptops aren't exactly made for high-performance tasks, still, if you need the extra performance and/or even smaller footprint, Ryzen one is the way to go. Also, Envy is generally better built than Pavilion, has a better battery life (listed 7hrs vs 16hrs) & display (45% NTSC 250nits vs 72% NTSC 300nits with Gorilla Glass).

So decide on your priorities. Storage can be replaced later if required, though.

Seems like 512GB SSD variant of the Envy you mentioned earlier. You can get good 1TB NVMe SSD for under 8k on sales (Kingston A2000), you just have to reinstall OS on it (key will be linked to mobo so will get applied for Win10 Home, claim MS Office to your MS account).

Ok got it.

Btw if I stick to 256gb variant of the envy..... Hope it's better than the Pavillion 360 one?

It seems like the better one, as I said earlier Pavilion has a bigger display & higher-capacity SSD but Envy has many other improvements.

Lol...pls don't shout.

Actually, I was prepared for the Envy one and today only saw this Asus one.....so for confused.....

Which one is bette between the two?


or


Thanks.
The HP Envy one is BEST choice,but for one caveat.
RAM can't be upgraded.It is soldered.

If the ASUS laptop has upgradeability for RAM,then eyes closed go for this one. Else the Envy.
Room for modification ALWAYS A MUST FOR LAPTOPS,whatver other features may be.

R5 4500U is still a bit better but i5 11th gen has closed the gap a lot compared to 10th gen. 11th gen has superior single core performance though.

There's no mention of RAM slot, so I doubt it has a RAM slot. From the spec sheet, Envy has a better display with a bigger battery as well.

I would say Envy is still the better choice. Zenbooks are the ones that compete with Envy.
