  • What's your Budget? Flexible can go upto 1.5Lakh if needed (Cheaper is still better)
  • What will be your primary usage for the notebook be? Office work with Word / Excel / Outlook / AutoCAD and maybe some NavisWorks. Otherwise some casual gaming in the lines of Civilisation 6 etc and Movies (Netflix / Amazon Prime)
  • What size and weight considerations do you have? As Light as possible since i need to move alot of with the laptop when i am using it.
  • Any brand that you prefer, or any brand that you detest? Avoiding Acer since its been a nightmare for me the last time i got one. Also no Apple products
  • Any other considerations? A good battery life, needs to last a full 8 hour day on the road without any charging. While travelling though i may probably only use work/excel and outlook.

@cyberwarfare He got a good deal on a Dell 7000 series - dunno specs, but is surely lightweight and all. I got a Acer Nitro (2.5kg, i7 8th gen 6C/12T, 1050Ti , 8GB , 128GB M2+1TB HDD) which I plan to keep as desktop replacement while my Dell 5000 series Vostro tags along with me....

I have not benchmarked the battery, but I think its about 2-3 hours.

Nopes, Amazon. The best prices are online with CB, like the Prime Sale last week.

What do you guys feel about the following laptops

1. Dell XPS 15 9570
2. Lenovo Yoga 730 15"

A 2 in 1 would be cool to get

Then get a Dell XPS 15 instead of 13 if you intend to play games.

The XPS series are very good right now.

Ok then the XPS13 looks like my selected choice

Also is a 4K display really worth it or would it be fine to give with a FHD one

Hi guys

I finally went and got the omen pc.

It's been two days now. Laptop seems good but one thing I noticed. On the bottom on the screen at the border I can notice a tiny LCD screen bleeding. It's not too bad. New laptop So wondering if it's normal[DOUBLEPOST=1534082222][/DOUBLEPOST]I've uploaded the picture for an idea. The photo seems to show it worse that it is

Might be IPS glow since it's around the edge if it isn't too distracting don't worry about it.
