May I ask what is going to be the main use of your laptop? Is it going to be internet surfing, gaming, coding or documents?
Not about the main use.But all those what you have mentioned..!!

HP 15-ac126TX is the machine you should buy, available for Rs. 49K on Amazon.


PS: Knowing the 'main' purpose of the machine helps.
Yeah...Thank you sir.
I m satisfied with this laptop
But thing is that ,
Is AMD radeon graphic card is better than NVIDIA geforce graphic card?

@E.Bernard samuel That laptop is way too costly, prolly because of Intel chipset. To be honest, that laptop is not worth 50k. I am not fond of PRIME technology (i.e Hybrid graphics - Optimus{Nvidia + Intel} & AMD Dynamic Switchable {AMD + Intel}). It doesn't really make sense of switchable graphics.

I would rather recommend you to get AMD APU with Radeon graphics (i.e dual graphics) to get the best gaming performance. APU has inbuilt graphics which itself is exceptionally good, and when it is used with Radeon graphics it becomes dual graphics technology, which means APU graphics performance and Discrete GPU performance will add up giving you good graphics performance. (No wonder why latest consoles uses AMD SoC rather than Nvidia). This doesn't happen with Intel + AMD or Intel + Nvidia or even AMD + Nvidia.

On downside : You won't find AMD APU's performance as good as Intel's i5. But again, I won't say its bad at all! (I use AMD APU myself). So here you gotta decide, what you want ? CPU power or GPU power ?

Though, I will suggest : THIS LAPTOP
Or any laptop that comes with latest Carrizo architecture. For Carrizo architecture laptop look for AMD A10-8700P or AMD A8-8600P series.
