Its been quite some time since I posted on here.

I'm looking to buy a laptop and I'm really lost.

I'll mostly be using it for browsing and running containers and VMs. Play a game or two occasionally. I am looking for Ryzen 5 laptops atm.

I have a spare 2.5 inch SATA SSD. It'd be nice if I could use it with the laptop. ( not sure if this is even possible )

My budget is 35k, I can stretch it to 40k if its worth.

3 brands selling AMD Ryzen 5 laptops right now in your budget - Asus, Acer and Lenovo. Not recommending laptops with 4GB RAM.

Here is the Lenovo one - https://www.amazon.in/Lenovo-15-6-inch-Graphics-Platinum-81D20091IN/dp/B07HY29HDK/ ( Ryzen 5 15.6-inch Full HD Laptop (8GB/1TB HDD/Windows 10 Home) [ Battery seems to be a downside on this one so you need to keep that in mind]

Asus - m.2 SSD slot available in two models - but no SATA SSD

https://www.amazon.in/VivoBook-R5-2500-Windows-X505ZA-EJ274T/dp/B07N8CQN2F/

https://www.amazon.in/VivoBook-R5-2500-Windows-X505ZA-EJ509T/dp/B07N8K9PSN/

Acer Aspire - As pointed out elsewhere on this forum, has 8GB RAM which is not expandable and personally I always suspect the build quality of Acer so won't really recommend but here is the link nevertheless. You can take a look.

https://www.amazon.in/Acer-A315-41-15-6-inch-Language-Integrated/dp/B07GPK5KH5/

Hope this helps to narrow down your search. Happy Shopping.

Dont go for Ryzen laptops. In that range, find the best I5 8250u laptop you can. Its quadcore and a beast. Upgrade ram and Add m.2 ssd in free slot. You're good to go. The challenge really is to find a screen that you are okay with and battery life. Rest this setup will serve 3-5+ years easily.
