https://www.amazon.in/Acer-AN515-31-15-6-inch-N... This frequently comes on sale for 43-46k (lower bound is for non-Windows). Plus whatever cashback/discount offers. Ci5+MX150 and 8GB RAM (4GB soldered, expandable max. upto 20GB). Decent MATTE IPS (6-bit)display but only 52-58% sRGB coverage, deep blacks and sufficiently high max. brightness leading to really good contrast ratio. Perhaps the best in its price range? Battery life (48Whr) highly variable depending upon workload, typically 4-4.5hrs but can be stretched to 7+! hrs. Internal slot for M.2 SATA/PCIe SSD (need to visit Acer service centre as one of the screws is hidden under warranty sticker ) . 2 years warranty extension + 1 year ADP on-site (where available ) for the low price of Rs 1769 ( valid till 31st August). Runs really cool and near-silent on light workloads like media playback or web browsing. Not impressed by speakers or keyboard layout. Former is not a concern personally as I always use ext. speakers/headphones but the latter is a bit disconcerting.
The Lenovo Ideapad 330s purportedly has a good display but the myriad RAM configs put me off.

It was on sale during Prime Day last month. And a few times even before that. Frankly I am surprised that wasn’t the case for the current Freedom Sale. The Ci7 version is not worth the extra moolah and the Ci5 Linux version is not worth more than 43k as for a relatively little extra you can get a whole lot more powerful hardware in the Nitro series. Keep checking frequently I guess. The 9th gen. CPUs and next. gen. Nvidia GPUs are on the horizon so that’s something to consider.
Edit: The Acer Aspire A515 series sports pretty much identical hardware but it has a TN display which is a deal-breaker. IIRC both RAM slots are upgradeable which is an advantage. M.2 slot is limited to SATA only perhaps? Also the Nitro has better build quality FWIW.

Thanks buddy, I’ll keep a look out. The 9th gen CPU and the new NVIDIA range isn’t for me as I’m not looking put more than 50k, unless you think that these will drive the prices lower?

The Acer Swift 3(14") is on sale on FK right now for 41k. RAM is soldered and can’t be expanded beyond the default 8GB and only the integrated Intel GPU though. NVMe PCIe SSD is supported but very limited. https://www.flipkart.com/acer-swift-3-core-i5-8...
The AMD Ryzen version is frequently on sale for 38k and it shares the same traits as the aforementioned. But I would have to recommend against it as battery life is lower than Intel ones for whatever reason and they still lag behind in single-threaded performance which matters more on a notebook. Perhaps with Zen 2 on 7nm? Otherwise it has a good display with contrast ratio that rivals those that are found on way more expensive models.
