    Gaming is better in laptops with graphics card 940M or 940mx

    940mx is said to be starting series if you wanna play every game.

    Why didn’t you include those laptops?

  2. lesjin joe mathew

    Hey, I’d like to add an SSD to my old laptop. I have backed up everything on my External Hard drive from the old hard drive. Please tell me how I will be able to restore the software from the external hard drive. Really confused!

  3. Nikhil

    I am presently working as a cad engineer and I want to buy a new laptop for using cad software like NX and CATIA. My colleague’s views are different for various laptops due to which I’m bit confused in product selection.
    Please guide me. My budget is up to 40K.

  4. ppankaj

    I want to buy 15-ac149tx but it has less core processor. Is it good or bad for a normal work?
    Can this laptop connect to a projector?

  5. faizal meman

    or buy Lenovo Ideapad 500-15ACZ Notebook (80K40038IH)

  6. Aniruddhsinh

    If laptop has i3 5th gen and amd graphics 4 GB ram can support auto cad and that type of programming smoothly ??

  7. Chandrashekar

    I’m looking to buy a good quality, long lasting laptop for office and personal use. Budget 40K. Please suggest best laptops in popular brands.

  8. What is wrong with buying the laptop having AMD’s processor and graphic card? I mean what are the pros and cons of buying an AMD system vs Intel system?

    • Nothing wrong. I am using a laptop with AMD GPU + CPU since 1 year. The laptop supports virtualization. I use Windows 10 and Open Suse Leap 42.1 OS on it. No issues so far.

  9. pratik apte

    Bro can you suggest a good laptop for heavy video editing under 80000 ? 🙂

  10. I want to know about the ASUS laptop which is Asus R558UF-XO044D. Does it have LCD or LED screen? Can I use these Linux Distros – Kali or backtrack? How is the ASUS after sales service? I mean are they better than others like dell or hp. And my last question is why the laptop is not listed on official website of ASUS

    • It has LED backlit display (as per the product listing page of 2 online retailers). The 2 Linux distros you’ve mentioned are not hardware demanding. The laptop should be able to run them. Kindly check the requirements of the 2 operating systems for more details. I can’t comment about the customer support. If Asus has a ticket based support system, then you shouldn’t worry about the support because the ticket will remain open until the issue gets resolved.

  11. Shivam

    I am planning to buy a new laptop under 60K but I am confused. I like Dell and Apple brands. I want a laptop for day to day use with a perfect value for money. Kindly help me out.

  12. Hi Chandan!
    Popular brands have their service centers in all states. Don’t worry about the brand. Check the specs of the laptops and chose one that meets your requirements.

  13. tanay

    I want a laptop for hardcore gaming like assassins creed and advanced warfare and also for project work under 35k?? I searched many laptops but I am confused. Please help me

  14. Rupam Debnath

    Hi Pramod,
    I have a budget of 35k. I am into hardcore gaming, so Nvidia 2gb graphics is a must along with Quad core processor or Intel i3/i5/i7 that can give me around 2 GHz clock speed, lesser with turbo boost is also preferred. I am OK with Windows 7/8. I searched a lot in ASUS, Lenovo, but unable to make a decision. Either I am getting AMD Radeon (not preferred) with overall good speed and Windows Or I am getting Nvidia but with DOS and lesser clock speed. Please suggest me few good laptops.

  15. Piyush

    I am looking forward to buying a laptop for my computer science engineering course. I think I will be requiring both Windows and Linux OS. My budget is Rs 40000. What laptops will you recommend?

    • Pramod Choudhary

      Core I3 4th or 5th gen laptop with 8GB RAM. You can get this configuration easily for within 34K to 38K Rs. I am recommending 8GB RAM because you might have to run powerful IDEs like Visual studio, Eclipse,…etc. IDEs are memory hogging applications and to run without lags/performance issues, you’ll need a machine with a lot of RAM

  16. sam

    hey pramod i want to buy a laptop and my budget is around rs30000-40000
    i want to buy laptop.for my gamming’multimedia and for internet surfing which laptop should i choose plz guide me..:-)

  17. Mike Chadha

    I recently picked up a lenovo with an AMD A-8 Processor for 24000. Upon trying to use the Internet the scene was dim & letters grainy . I returned same to the store who recommended a lenovo with higher specs . So I paid 15k extra & got a lenovo Z50-70, with Intel I3 process 4th gen with 8 gb ram & 1 tb hdd. Unfortunately same problem . Media & ms office is fine but the screen is very dim when checking emails & Web . Want to exchange it with a think pad but it has the same problem . Do I go for a HP Pavilion. Why are these laptops having poor quality screens ?

    • Pramod

      AMD A8 processor is as good as core i3. For gamers, this CPU is better than core i3 as you get a discrete GPU that handles games & graphics. I have purchased G50 series notebook with the same A8 processor and 8GB RAM. All i can say is that the laptop is awesome. It offers 3GB of video RAM and 6.5GB system memory. I’m not sure why you’re facing this issue. Try changing the power plan to increase brightness. The brightness is good in G50. If this doesn’t work, contact lenovo support. They might help you out in this issue!

  18. S. Thomas

    I’m looking for a 14 inch notebook in the Rs 30-35,000 price range – and there’s not a single one mentioned in your list. What your be your choice among the 14 inchers? I’m okay with notebooks with the AMD quad-core APUs.

  19. Ayushman SIngh

    Dude… Is there any FULL HD laptop out there(1080p) with 2gb graphics card around 40,000rs

      yeah, the Acer Aspire e5-551g is perfect for you at 32000. It has 2gb graphics, along with AMD a10 processor which has a clock speed of 3.2ghz. It also has 8GB RAM and 7 hrs battery backup.

  20. Sahil Garg

    hello PRAMOD
    thanks for sharing this info, i am having prob in my recent acer E1 Laptop, so thinking about buying a New one. i have made my mind on Dell In Inpiron 15. but tell me one thing about Clock Speed which is Good 1.8 GHz or higher like 2.4 GHz. BTW thanks for sharing such info here.

  21. Dee Ann Rice

    I would really like to get a new laptop as mine is several years old now. I have not really been looking recently so it was interesting to read your post.

    You have several brands of computers represented in your post. Which brand would you recommend? I guess the two I think are the best and have had the least problems with are Lenovo and Acer. I am running on an Acer right now and had a Lenovo prior to that. The thing I did not like about the Lenovo is that particular one had a partitioned hard drive. The running system had its on partition of the C drive. The problem is that partition very quickly became to small for the running system and it was almost impossible to even use it.

    What do you think of the Mac Book. I am very seriously thinking of getting an Apple laptop for my next computer. I think they have much less problems with viruses and people I have talked to who have switched over love the Apple. I have an Apple iPhone and iPad and love them.
