Need Advice on Laptops with Backlit Keyboard in the 30-35k Range


Looking to buy a laptop with Intel Core i3 processor, about 500 GB HDD, 4 GB RAM and a backlit Keyboard(This is a must)
It will be mostly for browsing, watching CBT videos, YouTube, casual coding, Webex/Skype sessions, Video capturing. No gaming whatsoever. Should be able to run at least a couple of VMs.
Going to be using this both at work and home.
Should be business quality laptop, with good build quality. Expecting it to run without issues for at least 5 years.

The laptop is going to replace a Dell Studio 1555 laptop, which had met all the above requirements charmingly, except only recently when it started giving issues with random freezes. (This is about 7 year old laptop.)


Currently, I am looking at the Dell Latitude 3450 listed on Amazon for roughly under 27k. I would have gone for this eyes closed, except that it doesn't come with the backlit keyboard. Dell are quoting close to 40k for the same with backlit keyboard.

I am also looking for people working in Dell, who can possibly get me better discount on this quote.

Do you want to buy the Laptop of Dell only or you are also looking for some different brand???
If you are looking for some different brand then you can go for Lenovo Flex. It has 360 degree screen rotation, 8gb ram, and many more. It also has backlit for keyboard. I guess the cost is around 30k. There are chances of getting better options if you stretch your budget.

I dont mind other brands. The budget cannot be stretched. Can you tell me the specific flex model that has backlit keyboard for under 30k?

I am really very sorry.....It is Lenovo Flex 2-14D 59-436783. It has a backlit keyboard but the thing is that it is a bit costly. It costs around 37k on paytm, amazon etc.

If you are ok with the budget the you can go for it....

There are hardly any Laptops with backlit keyboard under your budget. You need to increase your budget orelse buy a laptop with no backlit for keyboard.
