    Lightbulb Needs Gaming Laptop ; [65k ~ 70k] ; [15" - 17"] ;

    This one is going to be my 1st Lappie. I never wanted Laptop as it was never the same replacement for my Desktop monster. But the office work is really forcing me to take one.

    What is your budget? (INR or USD) 65k ~ 70k INR
    What size & weight consideration (if any) would you prefer?
    1. 17"
    2. 15"
    Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like? No specific preference as such as long as they are well built. But i dont want Macs as I cannot play games
    What are the primary tasks will you be performing with this notebook?
    1. Gaming
    2. Office Tools
    3. Learning
    4. Entertainment
    5. and Multimedia tasks like video conversion, Photoshop


    What screen resolution(s) & type (glossy/matte) would you prefer?
    • Screen Resolution : 1600 x 900 or higher [atleast 1366 x 768]
    • Type : Doesnt matter much even then , Matte finish preferred over Glossy.
    Anything else you would like to say? (eg: local purchase, ASS,matte/glossy finish)
    • CPU : Looking for 4th Gen or 3rd Gen i5 or i7 or AMD equivalent if we have something in this range
    • GPU : 650M GT or higher
    • RAM : 8GB DDR3 or higher
    • HDD : SSD + 750 GB if possible or 1TB
    • Display : Touch ?
    • Keyboard : Back lit if possible
    • Speaker : JBL speaker like in Dell XPS 15 or better.
    • OS : Not really required. I'm haapy with DOS or linux.


    Laptops Under Consideration :
    1. Lenovo Ideapad Y500 (59-379647)
    2. This one is little above my budget , but impressed. hp-envy-touchsmart-15-j001tx-laptop



    One more thing wanted to add, how to protect this thing , we have any insurance which covers theft protection ?
    Also , can we use a sim card to connect to internet ? I had seen a sim card slot in one of my friends lap.

    That too is a good option. Only downside compared to Y500 is Graphics card...

    safest bet is to get Lenovo Y500 for gaming, atleast it has a decent screen, HP had provided dull screen for 78K lappy.

    Not sure whether waiting for 510P and other 4th Gen laptops is a good bet or not. Don't think anything will be priced similar to Y500.

    How is Dell 17R Turbo compared to Y500 ?

    Dell 17R is a good option too, why? Because it has GDDR5 GT 650M but only downside is processor is I5 3210M, if they would have given I7 quad core, it would have compete with Lenovo Y500.

    Dell 17R is having i7.

    It has full HD with 17"
    +
    32GB SSD.

    Only thing is it has only 650M whereas Y500 has 750M.

    Dell 17R Turbo gone missing from Dell india site.
    Should I expect a new model with Haswell and 780M(atleast 750M)
    or
    permanent discontinuation... ??

    ^^ Very remote chance of getting a 780M withing 70-80K range in India its a GTX series card not GT, 750M ...yes...there will be new models around diwali with haswell and 7XXM. Y500 with 750M is a worthy choice.

    Not the good bet, the best....the lineup has not shown its face yet properly. Haswell and GT7XX will be hot.

    RON ...very good one, but a lil more waiting can save those ~60K bucks (+) over a 4th gen and 750M. We should promote and guide people to hold for another refresh. Honestly not with the high-end H/W i have , but with the latest gen less TDP intel and 700M GPU Boost 2.0, its an awesome experience. Guys deserve a chance.

    Yeah but in India Haswell are going to be very pricy for initial months, if budget is high better to get Imported ones like you did.

    Talked to Dell Service guys. One guy said it is out of stock and will be back by two weeks.And Dell plans to introduce Haswell by October only.

    Another guy said it is permanently discontinued. And Haswell may come by next month Beginning

    Dont know what is the truth

    Dude you have joined this problem recently where as many are still who are waiting for about 3 or more months to get Haswell laptop. So just join the line and start the waiting game. This is just pathetic on the part of manufactures.

    Any company when it comes to launch electronic products like laptops or mobile, does partiality when it comes to INDIA. Here electronic products comes very very late when we loose hope, and adding to that, comes with downgraded processor or graphic card or screen quality.

    I have friends in high places in Dell electronics. They are saying Indian Economic Trend of feeble currency is barring the generic work orders from US which is invariably delaying the releases.

    Its related because any new electronics release and lineup refresh needs a Business Order sent from Dell India corporate benches to US houses to officially announce and facilitate the distribution of new haswell units over Indian consumer outlets.

    But Dell India is eagerly waiting to dispatch this vast order, i repeat vast... as predicted order of haswell units will be quite high as expectations from users are already rocketing as their marketing surveys tell.

    So dispatching a vast order to US with money price this weak, will narrow the gross revenue for dell India per unit price. Thats why, when it has to be released anyway, they set up mind and have potentially put up a wait-time till next month to December to gradually introduce upon demands and budget trends of users.

    If we find price too high then we wont go for it, so that makes both the stack un cleared and also repo loss. But a controlled supply can make first impressions fair even if demand is not high, then price cut over situation and rebrand and resupply.

    Hmm.. I understand..

    Despite waiting , Just wanted to know your opinion about this combo.

    Samsung i73rd Gen with 650M + Samsung 250GB SSD

    Yeah.. It may look weird. It has 650M and the i7 proccy as in Y500. It has 1600x900 resolution with good specs. Planning to put the SSD instead of normal HDD and use HDD as external drive.

    What my way of thinking is instead of spending 70k in Y500 which has low resolution and high end card with no SSD, I can take one lap within 60k and buy the SSD.

    Dont know whether how much i have to pay for this.
    Should i go for the Old Y500[I expect price between 70~71k for the old Full HD version.] or the Samsung Combo i mentioned ?

    Despite waiting , Just wanted to know your opinion about this combo.

    Samsung i73rd Gen with 650M + Samsung 250GB SSD

    Yeah.. It may look weird. It has 650M and the i7 proccy as in Y500. It has 1600x900 resolution with good specs. Planning to put the SSD instead of normal HDD and use HDD as external drive.

    What my way of thinking is instead of spending 70k in Y500 which has low resolution and high end card with no SSD, I can take one lap within 60k and buy the SSD.
