Asus one: 635m
Dell models: 820m
Dell ultrabook: lacks dGPU (not sure on this one)
HP model 1: Radeon HD 8670M
hp model 2: 820m

All these are weaker than the 840m in the Lenovo Z50. If you want to play latest games on low-med settings, all the models mentioned above will be really bad for it.

get Lenovo Z50-70 Notebook (4th Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 1TB/ Free DOS/ 2GB Graph) (59-419439) Rs.43990 Price in India - Buy Lenovo Z50-70 Notebook (4th Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 1TB/ Free DOS/ 2GB Graph) (59-419439) SIlver Online - Lenovo : Flipkart.com

or

Gaming purpose laptops won't be light.
And light laptops won't let you game that much.
I suggested you both gaming and non gaming option.

Can you suggest some light weight lappy i can compromise on gaming but i need to frequenty carry my lappy for travel purpose.

the Z50 you suggested has 820m, insufficient for @OP's use. :|

Can you suggest some light weight 14" laptops with basic GPU and good battery backup?

Op is budget restrained. I was looking to suggest more of a affordable one which is of course with lower gpu.

[MENTION=125133]Minion[/MENTION] flex which I recommended is a absolutely ultra portable laptop. A lot of people in my college use flex series laptops coz of portiblity but yeah not that great when it comes to gaming.

Flex is good machine. Have a look at also to Dell 14 5000 new series.

Considering that the given laptop has R7 M265 which has comparable performance with 730m and costs more than a Z50 with 840m, it would be better to get the Z50 instead. :|

+1 for this remark.
Finally @OP your choice.

Also to [MENTION=145143]SaiyanGoku[/MENTION],my Friend,without undermining the very good machine(laptop) by Lenovo Z50 and without any insistence or rabid support for DELL laptop(since I am owning one and many of our Friends deemed it to be a crap),an important aspect you(and similar opinion based friends) forget that the DELL laptop as mentioned comes with Windows-8.1 loaded,whereasLenovo Z50 comes preloaded with DOS.
Thus the price difference,and arguably DELL is costlier.
Isn't that justified???

Windows 8.1 SL 64 bit OEM version costs 5.4k which comes with the Dell laptop as well.

If you factor this in, you get bloat-free OS with better dGPU at the same price. If you get the Windows 8.1 Pro student version instead, it'll cost you only 3.5k from Microsoft India, can't get any more cheaper than this.

I'm trying to save some of OP's hard earned money by investing in a better overall machine without gaining anything for myself. :)

Obviously that's a point,but [MENTION=145143]SaiyanGoku[/MENTION] please mention the model number(preferably in flipkart) of Lenovo Z50 series of laptop that comes with dGPU but costs lesser than DELL Inspiron 14 5000 series.
Again no offence friend,just want to look at that model.
