Which Laptop Should I Buy Among These?


Budget : INR 50k

Usage: Web development and web/graphic design softwares mostly (adobe cc illustrator, photoshop, visual studio)

Screen size : at least 15 inch

I have finalized the below 2 laptops :

https://www.flipkart.com/acer-swift-...PRODUCTSUMMARY

https://www.flipkart.com/lenovo-core...PRODUCTSUMMARY

However i'm not able to decide between the two as both have some visible issues:

Lenovo ideapad : The only issue i have with this one is the 720p only display which might be an issue for web designing purposes.

Acer swift 3: I have 2 issues with this one: 1) No expandable ram slot. 2) No dedicated graphic processor and I'm not really sure about the display quality and performance of its integrated graphic processor radeon vega 8.

So i have mainly 3 questions:

1) I have never worked on a 720p screen for my web development/design. Do you think it would be a major problem in the long run ?

2) None of these laptops contain SSD so i'm planning to upgrade that post purchase. How big of a difference does SSD make over older HDD for my usage (web development and designing) ?

3) Finally of course, which laptop would you prefer?

Also, please suggest any other laptop which you feel would be better in this price range.

Both of these are crap for your usage...it'll be better if you post your max budget and let us suggest something to you.

But if you HAVE to choose between these two then the Acer is better

The only ASUS Vivo I found with similar specs is for 1 lac
https://www.amazon.in/ASUS-N580VD-FI...dp/B077N1YMGW/

If you increase your budget to that, then I'll suggest U get one with a Quadro GPU instead...which are nowhere below +1 lac
https://www.amazon.in/s/?ref=nb_sb_n...1%2Ck%3AQuadro
And these have IPS panels...for better colour accuracy and wide-gamut RGB color space.

Thou there other non-Quadro options in ~85k with similar IPS screens like:
https://www.amazon.in/Asus-GL553VD-F...dp/B06XGFDPMQ/
&
https://www.amazon.in/Inspiron-15-6-...dp/B07B4CMH29/
which is highly recommended for your kind of work!

These 3 looks like good options. I don't do much gaming (except dota2 and pubg).
So would it be worth it to get i7 (last 2 laptops) over i5 just for web designing?
I know it would certainly be better to get i7 for softwares like photoshop and adobe cc. But do you think it would be worth it to pay 20k more for that?

Re: Which Laptop Should I Buy Among These?

Well, I wouldn't know as I'm not really into web designing. I have made PC and Hackintosh systems for editing, rendering, etc and so, I know that more cores is very helpful but no clue abt web design.

Also, the GPU suggestions in all the mentioned laptops are not for gaming alone...but more for the apps you suggested in the 1st post. They definitely help with that in a very big way. Most imp after CPU is GPU with those apps. Even more than RAM or SSD speeds in some apps. Except maybe the screen. A better screen would definitely be worth the extra money. Colour accuracy is more imp than everything else, therefore, I suggest you go for one with an IPS panel...even if you have to settle for a cheaper GPU.

Ideally, i7 + IPS screen and a "good enuff" GPU is what you need.
