Found two informative YT video for a pre-buying research purpose and for the sake of this original thread, I included it under spoiler tab
The display is a far bigger issue than the weight. That Thinkpad may be one of the best laptops in this range but it does not fit your use-case.
I think you can go for the MSI if you avail the max extended warranty and there is a service centre in your city and check its reviews on Google atleast. Check out these comment thread -I find the MSI Modern quite good, the reviews are good too. But worrying about support.
I'll be based in Delhi or Kolkata for next 3-4 years hopefully. The support part is worrying.
After going through specs and few reviews, two things are better in this one than the Thinkpad -I'll be based in Delhi or Kolkata for next 3-4 years hopefully. The support part is worrying.
