alright i’ll buy a new one this festival sale… i did upgrade desktop to ryzen 5 ,16gb ram.. would’ve upgraded gfx too but for the increase in prices …
monitor is very old , il upgrade that & buy a 27” one recomended by users here.

But for on the go i need to have an essential work machine which is durable. I’ve owned two laptops both of Dell and both have given headaches more than anyone cam handle. I invested around 20k in both the machines after their warranty expired and i’m distraught to look at the durability of such machines. I need to own a laptop which can last 5-7 yrs without giving me headaches. Budget 80k~100k

I say forget about it. Nowadays they don't make laptops like pre-2014 era. Buy 1 year extended warranty minimum(so total 2 years warranty) or better get 2 years extended warranty(so total 3 years warranty) & sell the laptop on olx in your local city just a month before 3 years warranty ends at around 30-40% of purchased price.

Power IC needs to be checked. You might need a board level repair.

board level repair is indeed required and this time i’ll not invest in it since its of 2016 and already 20k spent in 2018… ill purchase a new laptop instead and definitely no dell this time after owning 2 dells and both getting mobo level repair after their warranty expired… now i seriously doubt dell’s durability

i need a sub 1 lac laptop which provide good typing feedback , good screen brightness, if it is touch screen 360* rotation then awesome but i prefer 15.6” coz of the good real estate, solid built quality, durable hassle free product…

i shortlisted
1. Hp pavilion 15 Ryzen 5
2. Acer swift 3 Ryzen 5
3. Hp Envy 15.6” non touch
4. Macbook air m1 base model

i don’t need any gaming since i have my desktop for that.. in search of lightweight easy to carry ..

Macbook Air M1 should have the best build quality followed likely by acer swift 3 but I don't think there is any latest 15.6" model in swift 3 series.
