Hello,

I am confused choosing between two laptops

Asus Vivobook S S430UA = 48k₹
Latest i5 8265u
Asus vivobook S430UN = 65k₹
Older i7 8550u
Nvidia MX150 2gb

Both the processors, ie newer i5 and the older i7 have the same performance in benchmarks. So, I guess the cpu are of equal performance.

Only extra there is then the MX150 card, so is the upgrade worth for 17k?

I am not a gamer, but I might play games rarely, like once in 2 months

Please help

Absolutely NO! Its desktop counterpart is the GT 1030 which costs Rs 5.5-6k (and is still overpriced considering the R3 2200G at 8k ). But that’s how it works in the world of laptops. The difference between a 1366×768 TN panel and a 1080p IPS panel is $15. Yet you would need to spend some $150-200 more to get the latter. Blow through your budget or compromise.

The problems with gaming laptops are, they’re usually bulky and with very less battery backup.
i5 H processors are very good, but bulkiness is the problem

Asus Vivobook S510UN was retailing for Rs 54-58k 8-9 months earlier. Besides 5-7k cashback on Paytm. Weird pricing. Searched offline?

That is different model. This one is Asus Vivobook s14 S430UN

I guess this is the lowest price ever, atleast in Flipkart as per buyhatke graph.

I didn’t check in local shops
