Hi Dimers

I have gone through previous threads on this topic but sometimes more options cause more confusion.

I am confused now.

Can you please suggest good laptop in this range ?

Primary requirment: college student will be primarily using for coding and related requirements.


I can think of
1.  Lenovo IdeaPad 5 pro
Take a look at this Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro Core i5 11th Gen – (16 GB/512 GB SSD/Windows 10 Home/2 GB Graphics) 14ITL6 Thin and Light Laptop on Flipkart https://dl.flipkart.com/s/!sDn...NN
Inr -73K

2.
ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 (2021), 14-inch (35.56 cms) FHD 144Hz, AMD Ryzen 7 5800HS, GeForce GTX 1650 4GB Graphics, Gaming Laptop(8GB/512GB SSD/Office 2019/Windows 10/White/1.6 Kg), GA401QH-HZ069TS https://www.amazon.in/dp/B096VKNKSG/ref=cm_sw_r...
Inr – 75K

Please suggest some more better option for the college going students. We would be using it for next 5-7 years.

Currently this is the best laptop.

Mediocre display (1080p + 250nits) & 41Wh battery. 60k is too much for this laptop (Spend 5k more and get HP Aero, much lighter and a lot better color accurate display with 400nits brightness)

ok I’ve a different theory than everybody else it seems. If you’re a computer science student, I’d strictly not suggest any MacBook. There are 2 main reasons:

1. You won’t be able to experiment with your computer, which is needed to grow yourself as a computer science student. MacOS is very restricted in itself and Apple hardware is restrictive too. You’ll have to do lots of efforts to even find work arounds. By experiments, I mean you’d want to install different operating systems including hackintosh, linux etc, use different tools, use storage drives to transfer movies/softwares/assignments among other people in college and what not, all of these would be done best and easily on windows based machines only.

2. Apple hardware isn’t really good now a days, especially for MacBooks. I’m not talking about M1 chip or motherboard, but about the overall quality control. I’ve a MacBook pro with touch bar 2017 model bought for 1.5L including apple care. Its touchbar, display & keyboard, all went bad within 3 years. Got them replaced in the 33rd month. Service centre informed that a brand new display was fit in. Now after 8 months, this new display is also showing EXACT same issues as the previous display. This implies that the quality control itself is very poor. Now the display replacement will cost me 48k. Don’t fall in this trap.


Also, the Ideapad 5 pro or Asus Vivobook pro, as suggested in the thread, I’ll NOT suggest any of them. Simple reason is their high end display. Understand it like this:
1. You’re a student right now. If you get used to high end displays right now, it’ll be very difficult for you to adjust later.
2. Also, Ideapad has 2.2k display and Vivobook pro has 2.8k oled display, both of which consume a lot of battery, which is why battery life on both these laptops is bad. 4 hour battery life is NOT good!
3. oled displays are not really good for laptops. They’re expensive to replace and tend to burn-in.
4. These 2 models are not with touchscreen, but don’t go for other touchscreen models. They’re an overkill for any laptop. More of a fancy feature than real world usability


So which one should you buy?

Mandatory features: Imo, It’d be best for you to buy a windows laptop which has FHD display, 16gb RAM, 512gb pcie ssd. i5 processor will be enough, a good keyboard is a must, good service network.
Good to have things: type c charging for fast charging, usb 3.2 ports for fast data transfers, light weight so you can easily carry anywhere, good battery life – preferably more than 6 hours, backlit keyboard.

This same model is also available on lenovo website directly. You can use any generic coupon to get some discount and there is a 10% cashback (upto 5000) offer also running right now on all credit cards:
https://www.lenovo.com/in/en/laptops/ideapad/s-...

PS: Default warranty 1 year, buy additional 2 year warranty for 1800.

2. https://www.flipkart.com/asus-vivobook-ultra-14...
PS: Default warranty 1 year, buy additional 2 year warranty from Asus directly (probably 2500, not sure)

3. https://www.dell.com/en-in/shop/laptops-2-in-1-...
PS: This comes with default 3 year warranty. Additional 2k off on netbanking/upi.

I know your budget was 75k. So buy around 60-65k and invest that balance money somewhere. Use it if laptop needs some repair after 3 year warranty expires

Please focus on your purchase purpose. Don’t end up buying a media centric device instead of an experimenting & coding device that you need.

Don’t have any code for Asus, but if you want to buy that Asus Vivobook pro only, better check Amazon:
https://www.amazon.in/dp/B09RQ...3/

Deal price I’m seeing is ₹63990 (card & affiliate discounts extra)
________________

And for Lenovo, I can help you out with a code which will give you 5% discount on laptop core price… I’m taking the first laptop as example (model: 82FE016HIN):
link => https://www.lenovo.com/in/en/p/82FE...IN

Lenovo website price: ₹63150
Add bag for ₹1 + 2yr extra warranty for ₹1799
Net price: ₹64950
Coupon discount: ₹3158 (5% on ₹63150)
—————
Final price payable = ₹61792.

Now use any credit card to pay. You’ll get ₹5000 cashback in 30 days as per Lenovo offer.  No separate coupon code is needed for this 5000 cb. But please confirm with Lenovo customer care first whether you’ll get 5000 cb or not if you use any coupon, because you’ll be using a coupon.

So if you decide to confirm buy this laptop, let me know, I’ll generate the coupon for you. It’ll be a specific one time use code which I’ll have to generate specifically.

I have not delved deep into both but personally I wouldn’t buy any of the two. Well established OEMs like Dell, HP etc. have enough issues with delivering a reasonably trouble-free product to bother with Chinese and newer entrants to the scene.
