Need gaming laptop for 50k - 60k

1) What is your budget? (INR or USD)
Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 60,000

2) What size & weight consideration (if any) would you prefer?
Mainstream; 15" - 16" screen. I plan on carrying this to my college so, prefer it not be too heavy.

3) What are the primary tasks you will be performing with this notebook?
Watching anime, playing some serious system intensive video games like Banner Saga, Shovel Knight and Mark of the Ninja.
In all seriousness though, I don't really plan on playing too intensive games on this laptop, I have a desktop with 960 for that. The most performance intensive game that I can think of atm is either CS GO or Dark Souls 2.

5) Any typical configuration in your mind you're eying for ?
Anything that has around 8GB of RAM, a non - ULV processor and something comparable to GTX860M.

4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
a. Like: Apple (from previous experience had an old Macbook Pro, really liked the screen and overall build quality.)
b. Dislike: Dell (also from previous experience using a Dell XPS15 with gt540m. Dell used a **** thermal paste which dried up after 1 year of use and hence forcing me to either - replace it with my own or under volt the GPU delivering only 60% of promised performance.)


6) Anything else you would like to say?
Screen resolution 1080p (Full HD)
Battery back up - normal (3-4hrs)
Purchase place Online (eg - flipkart, infibeam)

Thanks in advance!

Asus Rog Gl552 is the best u can get in this budget.

Right off the assembly line
In that bugdet, there are no laptops with non-ulv processor and with gtx 860m [unless you are buying from USA]

Add 10k more and Asus Rog gl552jx with gtx 950m 2GB DDR3 is best option [from Flipkart. Check Local retail stores,luckily you may find it cheaper..].
It was listed on ebay.in at 59k[imported laptop from Thailand].

Lenovo y50-70 perfectly fits your description. It is better than GL552JX [except for screen[TN(Y50) Vs IPS(GL552)]. Its around 75k..
Updated y50 with Gtx 960m and ips screen is available starting at 849 USD [If you can buy from USA. It isn't available here,i think]

If you can import yourself check these out:
Asus 15.6 FHD Gaming Notebook i7 4720HQ 12GB DDR3 750GB HDD Nvidia GTX950M $749 + Free Shipping! - Slickdeals.net

Lenovo Y50 Laptop: i7-4720HQ, 16GB DDR3L, 1TB+8GB SSHD, 15.6" IPS 1920x1080, 4GB GTX 960M $899 + Free Shipping - Slickdeals.net

I know laptops aren't for GAMING. That is why I explicitly mentioned 2D indie games as the games that I plan on playing. The only real system intensive games that I plan on playing is probably CS GO or Dark Souls 2 both of which are 2011 and 2013 games respectively.
As for a good config, I already have a 4440+960. This is strictly for carrying to college.

IDK. WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING

+1 to gl552jx from ebay
Any idea when they'll re-stock?

Else if you don't give a damn about warranty, import Sager NP7155 (Clevo N155SD)
As much as I would love to get SAGER/CLEVO, the taxes just wouldn't allow.

Almost same with a difference of 16 GB vs 8 GB ram.

Still not worth more than 75k because of DDR3 950M.

What should I get for about 70k? I'm really running out of patience with that ebay guy.

Yea I did that already. I saw literally no difference specs wise and was wondering what made it cost 15k more.

true that man. never thought buying a ****ing laptop would be this hard :shock:

I think i will end up buying a lenovo z50.

what about you?

I'm thinking of ordering the G551JX via amazon and get 10k cashback from my old laptop. But, if the z50 has a decent build and screen, I wouldn't mind picking it up. Can you link the version you're looking at?

Can you link the version you're looking at?

I am also waiting for that ebay guy so i havent selected a model yet. Main reason i think i will end up getting z50 is that i dont think the framerate jump is good enough to justify the price jump between the both models.

Since you can get 10% discount i would say go with G551JX.
