The new Macbooks are downright outrageous, before at least you got a dgpu with the entry level 15 inch model in India, but now you have to shell like 200k to just get GT 750M, one can easily get a workstation with same or greater specifications at 170k. At the same time Air and 13" don't do any justice to professionals. And as for HP, they don't ship with weak processors, I guess quad core models start 65k onwards.

Edit: And they are not imitations, look at Dell Inspiron 7000 series, now that is what imitation looks like. And as for business, who said that we need to compare Envy, their are always Probooks and Elitebooks, and not to say Zbooks.

Nope. Lenovo Y510p stands tall in that category beating the Envy series in everything.

Lenovo Y510 is an exception with some cutbacks, I mean just two USB 3.0 ports(I don't think that having four would have taken a toll on price)? And touch pad that is sort of flimsy, an inconsistent built. Sure it gets it right in term of specs, but overall is not a perfect package, and yeah, no optimus too. Every laptop has its own drawbacks, and when you use that laptop in field, you will know the pros and cons, you might be finding it good for gaming and maybe in your field of studies, but for me as a university student, and that too in a field that is research oriented, I find Y510 to be not that useful, it might be to gamers(especially since we don't have choices in India) but not for someone asking for stable PC.

1.Touchpad issues have been solved.
2.Lenovo Y510p supports Optimus when 2nd GPU is not inserted(le India).
3.2 USB 3.0+1 USB 2.0 is sufficient.
4.Battery life is not bad for a performance oriented laptop.
5.It's a stable laptop.
6.Your argument=Invalid.

Your needs represent a very tiny demographic because Y510p is very good for a college student.

Lack of a good hard drive , poor display , poor keyboard or touchpad , flimsy materials , even poor design can cause highly packed laptops to be a dissapointment.
Its not necessary that a workstation capable of gaming will definitely suffice in day to day normal usage.

I have not used envy series yet but HP does have good build quality.
I had HP pavilion dv2700 se , and HP pavilion DM1-4100AU.
Well designed and crafted but slightly expensive. Excellent service too.
Now thats pavilion series and an year back.

Y510p:
1.1 TB 5400 RPM drive but let's face who provides a full fledged SSD in India except Apple(another reason why macs are good).
2.Beautiful 1080p screen.
3.Beautiful backlit Keyboard with an okayish touchpad.
4.Aluminium body.
5.Superb Design.

HP build quality is nowhere near Lenovo. Lenovo is famous in the laptop industry for its Legendary build quality(especially Thinkpads).

Let's what others have to say in regards to college level studies, and with you saying that I represent a very small demographic would mean that every student in India is studying for grades+gaming and not for innovations.

Also as for build:Review Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p Notebook - NotebookCheck.net Reviews

The problem(s) still persists. I can back down on USB 3.0 argument since not everyone needs more than 2, but my other arguments are still valid, see the temperature readings, how would one run their laptop for like days rendering or doing simulations in that case, even if the load is moderate.

That review doesn't mean anything. That laptop is the SLI model whose performance and heating effects are a very poor simulation of the Indian model.
Let me tell this to you again: Touchpad issues have been COMPLETELY solved in INDIA.
It SUPPORTS Optimus WHEN 2nd GPU is not installed.
Laptop won't get hot if if load is moderate. Softwares capable of taxing both the CPU+GPU 100% are not meant for laptops and will overheat all other laptops.

So you are basically saying that a laptop with core i7 4700MQ+GT 740m which provides same battery life as Y510p is somehow better than the latter? Duck Logic IMO.

I should not read a review to buy a laptop next time if that review means nothing, and honestly, if that 740m runs on a 128 bit bus, yup, it is better than a "pseudo-gaming laptop" because as a mainstream laptop, it does the job, and that is just not for Envy, even other laptops like Inspiron 7000 series with ULV i7 is good for gaming, if "good" is the term used with Y510 with just a single dgpu, I mean what is the point of buying it if you are not using another one in sli.

Here you go again Duck Logic.
It doesn't matter if the GT 740m has a 128 bit memory bus. The core itself and DDR3 memory makes it naturally slow. There's so much as the bus can do.
Let me clear some things to you:
1.In India, Lenovo Y510p ships with a single GPU+DVD Drive.
2.With a single GPU, the Y510p is immensely better than both HP Envy and Dell Inspiron 7000 series while still remaining cheaper.
3.With 2 GPUs, the Y510p competes with Alienware 17 with GTX 770m in performance.

4.SLI card is not available in india.
 
Re: Need Laptop for College, Video Editing and Movies/TV

Let me ask you a simple thing, would buy a point and shoot camera with a very high pixel count and extreme zoom, or you would buy a simple looking mirrorles interchangeable lens camera. Seeing your signature, it seems that you have two laptops, one is more general purpose and one is meant for some gaming, most of the people don't have a choice to get two laptops, and so to say, a complete package is required. One can have a half baked gaming laptop, or an all rounder one, which can handle a little bit of everything. Asus offers a better deal when it comes to gaming laptop at that price range, and the screen quality of Y510 is no where near around Inspiron 7000, and stop highlighting the things Y510 have, because I know that and I have used that laptop for a brief period of time, and I never say anything conclusive about a product unless I have used it myself.

Still not making sense. Stop the duck logic!
Also comparison doesn't make sense.

So Lenovo can only handle games if we do anything else in Lenovo laptops, they will suddenly become slow. Lenovo laptops can handle only games but Dell/HP laptops can handle a little bit of everything. :lol: :lol: :rofl: :rofl:
As I said, Duck Logic.


Y510p's screen is considerably brighter than Dell Inspiron 7000 series'. A good brightness level is extremely necessary in glossy displays. Viewing angles and contrast level is better in Dell Inspiron 7000 series' screens because of the IPS panel. However, IPS panels offer a very poor response time.

Dell Inspiron 15 belongs to my dad. I only use the Lenovo Y500.

Honestly, sir, you win, because I don't have any more arguments to make.
An owners prejudice is always overwhelming.

Edit: Oh, I forgot to put quotes, it should be half backed "gaming" laptop.

Exactly! That's why you are so hell bent on proposing that Envy series is somehow better than Lenovo Y510p.
Unfortunately all your propositions were fallacies.
 
Re: Need Laptop for College, Video Editing and Movies/TV

I am not an ardent supporter of any brand, nore do I advocate for one, and as for Envy, I am not trying to say it is superior, but it is not inferior either. I don't detest Lenovo. And if my propositions were fallacies, then yours might have been nothing but form of sophism, think about it; can you say anything conclusive when it comes to technology?

Everything I said is a tautology.
Lenovo Y510p is superior to HP Envy period.

Lenovo Y510p is superior to HP Envy period.

That was supposed to be a statement, not question..
Give or take, not everyone will agree that Y510 is good or Envy is good.
 
I and seamon(well I) technically hijacked a completely innocuous thread to an HP vs Lenovo thread, it centered around HP Envy line and Lenovo Y series. Subjectively speaking, I couldn't get to an obvious conclusion, so I decided to create a poll thread; while the original argument was in regards to Envy and Y series, this one is in regards to present line up from both stables. Lenovo is currently trending number one in sales and HP is sort of trying to get the old spot back. What do you think of the lineup from both the sides ? Are they sufficient to cater needs of every strata, or are they still bend on old practice of neglecting Indian customers and sitting ducks without any innovation ?

Broken In
HP's new Envy 15 with the 850M is definitely targeted at students with its 1.5 TB HDD and the cheaper price point of about 65K (according to a few sources). Given that bit of information, I say that HP has broken its old habit of negligence.

BUT, Lenovo is coming back with the Y50 expected next month. Minus its cringe-worthy screen, it's a powerhouse. Lenovo has also seeped into every price point with more VFM options.

I choose Lenovo. :-D
 
I am happy with the new Envy series with GTX850m, but in HP USA site, the 850 option is available with an i5 only :/. Although there is some hope of quad core version with gtx 850m with quad core i7(they displayed such configuration in some convention or pr event). Honestly, if they go with i5, it will be a total waste.

Beta Geek ;-)
I voted for HP only for its service,and the bad instances of Lenovo after sales that I have seen. Otherwise on purely specs to specs basis,Lenovo beats HP hands down(Y510p vs Envy 15)
I myself chose HP Envy j133tx over Lenovo due to serivce issue. Otherwise,my heart still longs for Lenovo.
