Looking for a medium-end gaming/work laptop


Digital Marketer
1) What is your budget?


2) What size & weight consideration (if any) would you prefer?

Mainstream; 15" - 16" screen

3) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
a. Like: Dell, acer, lenevo, ASUS (in the order of preference)
I like Dell as i've heard good reviews about it but.. i'm not sure about acer and lenevo. The reason why I chose acer and lenevo is because some friends have told me that these 2 give a better backup as compared to Dell, and then, are under 30k as well.

b. Dislike: sony

4) What are the primary tasks will you be performing with this notebook?

Going priority wise -

I'd love to get a 4/5 hour back up at least.. where I'll be working on

1) office work - word document, photoshop, video editing
2) gaming - I won't be playing any high end games but yeah, i'd love to consider gaming as an option as well

5) What screen resolution(s) & type (glossy/matte) would you prefer?

15.6 inches mainly and I'm not sure about the type :(

6) Anything else you would like to say? (eg: local purchase, ASS,matte/glossy finish)

Something like this - Dell Inspiron 15R 2nd Gen Ci3/ 2 GB/ 500 GB/ 1 GB Graphics/ DOS: Flipkart.com: Compare, Review Dell Notebook

Hmm ASUS is a nice option. Can you tell me what differentiates ASUS from DELL and other brands?

ASUS manufactures motherboards itself so they are a bit cheaper...:)
& laptop mentioned above has good graphic card.. ( GT 630m) good for gaming @ med settings..:cool:

No windows so another price saving.. U may use Linux:-D
:-D99%of us use :twisted:pirated:twisted: Windows so u may go for it:-D

Thank you for the reply!

ASUS one looks really good, no doubt But I'm preferring the dell one cause of the budget (want to stick to lower end of the budget)

So, If I choose the DELL laptop, what am I missing? (except the cool graphics card in asus)

Do we have any other brand laptop with similar configuration?
Heard that samsung have it but was not able to find it.

Samsung haven't updated their laptops with 2nd gen APU or if they did are simply not available here. And skip any the ones with A3XXX. Those are first gen and performance is really poor by today's standard.

Else look for laptops with 3rd gen i3/i5. Those too can run modern games but at lowest settings only.

Hmm... Just had a change of mind.. slightly. Below is the config that I'm comfortable with.

intel i5 2nd/3rd gen
1 gb dedicated graphics card (or intel graphics 4000)
500gb hdd
4gb ram (already included)
15.6 inches screen
USB 3.0
...somewhere around this! I know it's not easy to find a laptop which includes ALL this but a laptop which matches anywhere close.. would be really appreciated!

I was looking at dell's site.. to configure a laptop personally.. but ugh I'm not really getting that link.. the closest link I got was Laptops, Notebooks & Ultrabooks - New Dell Laptop Computers for Sale | Dell

I don't mind any brand as long as I get all of this. It's kind of tough finding the right one, but if anyone of you already know the source, please share!

EDIT: How good is teh first one and second one?
