Hello

I need to buy a laptop

Main usage home and office.
Excel, word, online tender etc.
No specific brand preference.

I will prefer IPS screen and Optical Disk Drive if possible.

Budget is 15- 24 k

for personal use there won’t be. Technically there is a cap of upto 25k inr but it’s never enforced, also it depends what city you fly into.

If you come in to Delhi it’s very liberal as they’re not looking for traveller like you. They’re more focused on gold diamond and other high value items plus contrabands. I fly international more than a few times every month for over 7-8 years and I don’t recall every being stopped.

Also if you’re carrying loads of luggage then there is a slight possibility of checking even then you can avoid it by saying that your relocating.

lastly if your not the types to save all the packaging and boxes then ditch all the unnecessary items and bring only the actual goods, so even if they check it’ll pass as a personal device.

All in all there is less than 1% chance of you getting checked unless you’re looking/behaving shady, that’s my personal opinion.

hope this helps, cheers

I’ve never used Lenovo so wont comment on that but my assumption is that hp is better than Lenovo.

checkout this model below, I recently purchased this to be used in office and the best part is it comes with a licence of Windows and latest ver of ms office (not 365). I don’t think this is IPS display but I’m really satisfied with it. Plus it’s cheaper. Considering your usage I doubt the processor is going to make much difference.

What is good AMD A6 9225 vs I3 8130U.. most of the laptop comes with 4 gb ram and 1TB HDD..

Other are insanely prices high just by adding 4 gb and SSD the price is almost 70- 80% higher.

I am planning to buy one and add ram and ssd myself later..

What say

AMDs are generally good. You can compare any processor on cpuboss.com. Just have a look there. I have an old laptop with core2duo and 4 gb ram that works way better than my i3 4gb version. And I want to sell my old laptop, in case you or someone else is interested, ping me.

I had one laptop with amd processor.IMHO they run hot compared to intel processor eats up battery fast.For new generation i can"t say as i bought this laptop 5,6 year back.
Recently i bought a dell i5 4th gen(second hand import from us) in 13.5 inch touch screen with gorilla glass protection,8gb ram and 256gb m.2 ssd.it has 1080p resolution.it costed me 20k
its working fine .you can look around for these busyness class laptops in local shops or buy sell section of forum if you like
