My brother had a Dell laptop that worked great for a couple of years but it became very slow so on inspection we found that the hard disc was running at 100% load making the system completely unusable. He tried Microsoft and Dell support as well, also tried several fixes found on the internet but nothing worked so we sold that laptop and purchased Asus tuf which is running great even today.
This issue is common for Dell laptops and we were not alone so I'll rather not take a second chance. Also Asus has been awesome and the current laptop even after 3yrs is going great, ofc battery life has decreased which is justified.

On paper the laptop seems good and price is great. The panel is similar or if not same to what is being provided with Asus tuf A/F 15 series thats has poor response rate and lot of screen bleeding (this can be due to poor installation of panel,which is common these days)
Weight is decent at 2kg and the four vented cooling will be sufficient for the hardware under the hood.
If you want a desktop replacement, and a laptop to be used while stationed somewhere then its a great choice. But for on-the-go scenario it wont hold as the battery is 54whr. Idle runtime would be 5hr (s0 sleep), and regular usage would net upto 3-4hr at most.
WiFi being Ax201 (according to reviews online), TB4 and MicroSD (with good r/w) are definite plus.
I have seen Gigabyte pushing for new stores, merchandise and partnerships with existing stores in Delhi. So thats also a plus but on the laptop side I can't say if they are reliable just yet.

The laptop will be used only in office with access to electricity all the time, Lots of positives and reviews says its a decent laptop with slight compromises which should be expected given the price @72.5k
I have used Gigabyte motherboards and none of them failed in last 10 years so my personal experience is good but can't say the same for Laptops.
I was talking to brother and we decided to let it go purely because of the fact that if something goes wrong it will be a mess and we don't want to take chances when your job depends on it

Would a small PC be out of the question?

I have heard that keeping a laptop plugged in all the time isnt good for its battery. I have done this with my Asus ROG Strix laptop but it has an option to limit the max charge to 60% or 80% (this is supposed to be better) and after two years, it charges upto 59% when I limit it to 60%. I would check if Gigabyte has a similar feature.

we already have a BIG desktop (when I say big it means the monitor is 43' Samsung 4k TV hahaha)
Don't know if continuous power is bad for battery health so someone can correct us, what I meant was that a shorter backup is fine when I can charge my laptop whenever needed.
Though your suggestion for MSI Alpha is good, its a decent laptop and I am thinking to go for it (undecided at this point in time)
