    I am planning to buy a laptop soon as my old Acer emachine d725 has become very slow.

    This is not a very urgent purchase I can wait for better deals.

    Questionnaire for laptop/notebook purchase:

    1) What is your budget?

    35000 - 42000
    I will pay for best value for money in this price bracket.

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

    - Mainstream; 15" - 16" screen.
    I don't commute with my laptop so weight and size is not a problem.


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

    * Word processing
    * OCR software to convert PDF to word like Abbyy finereader.
    * Convert mobile family home videos for better compression and low size.
    * Multimedia. I would like to connect my Denon AVR to laptop.


    5) Any typical configuration in your mind you're eying for ?
    Minimum preference
    - i3 / i5 8th gen cpu
    - 8GB RAM
    - 15 inch screen 1080p
    - I need at least a M2 slot for future upgradability to SSD which I will buy after 5, 6 months.
    - inbuilt SSD ( if available)



    4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?

    a. Like: HP ( but currently all HP sub 40000 models have poor build quality) Acer, Asus,

    b. Dislike: Dell ( Because of cost)


    6) Anything else you would like to say?

    - Screen resolution -- 1080p (Full HD) )

    - Battery back up - normal (3-4hrs)
    Will use as desktop. So battery life doesn't matter. Anyway all laptop battery die after 1 year.

    - Purchase place ( Online (eg - flipkart, infibeam) / Local / Abroad )
    I would prefer local shops in Kolkata Chandni market or Ganesh Chandra Avenue.
    I avoid Snapdeal. But do let me know about online models. Sometimes they are available in offline shops also.

    Thanks a lot in advance guys for your valuable opinions

    The Asus one is more practical. The i5 is definitely more powerful but i3 8th gen is sufficient for day to day tasks.
