Hello Friends,

Need urgent advice on which laptop I should finalize among 4.

Purpose - Medical Study.

Requirement - Data transfer via usb, optical drive (must), wi-fi/BT, browsing medical clips/videos on various site, long hours interaction with laptop.

Preferable - Thin, light weight, handy, long battery back up and good screen quality, screen range - ~14" to ~15"

Optical drive is must for medical CD/DVD read and copy.

Shortlisted below Lappy. Which one best pick?

(1) Lenovo G5030 ~Rs.24k
Lenovo G50 Laptop | Entry-Level Laptop with DVD Drive | Lenovo US

(2) Dell I 3545 ~Rs.27k
Inspiron 15 3000 Series Laptop Details | Dell India

(3) Asus X551CA ~Rs.25k (No optical drive but card reader & HDMI are plus)
Notebooks & Ultrabooks - X551CA - ASUS

(4) HP 15-p028TX ~Rs.38k (less 5% SBI disc) at Reliance digital. I know its on higher budget than other 4 but looks promising.

^if you can spend upto 40k, then why not get Lenovo B590/59-409293 Notebook (3rd Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 500GB/ Free DOS/ 1GB Graph) (59-409293) instead. way better CPU than the HP one at 38k

and if you want a laptop with OS, get a Lenovo G510 or G50 (not the one you mentioned in the link)

you will find two varieties of CPUs - one that ends with U (e.g. 4210U) and the other that ends with M (e.g. 4200M). U is ultra low voltage CPUs used in Ultrabooks and M is mobile / regular ones. First one sacrifices some processing power for saving power / electricity hence smaller bills and the other draws more electricity but is more powerful.
IMHO, for daily usage / office work / watching movies, U is ok.
if you are interested in latest heavy games / movie encoding or processing, then you should go for M varient.

as per your requirement, imo you are better off buying an Ultrabook (with a U cpu) having a good screen.

Check out some reviews of it.

Hmm... its average rating on notebookcheck

also, price tag is out of budget ~42k. I can spend max 35k.

That's what I have purchased this Diwali.

All of you may have a look at :---> http://www.digit.in/forum/laptops-netbooks/187845-friends-should-i-go-laptop-opinion-required.html , just the thread comment above yours...
Though price is Rs.43k in Flipkart.
well, i overshoot budget while quoting flex. Dell is good option but out of reach i.e. max budget is 35k.

Guys, my first & foremost essential requirement is lappy should be thin wedge, light & handy-trendy with good screen quality and battery back up as she required to carry notebook from hostel to institute & within campus frequently. Optical drive highly usable as she need to run medical study book cd/dvd & also need to copying it.

Any best fit under 35k (desirable is 30k) in HP(my favorite), Lenovo & Dell would be most preferred. Pl suggest options.
