Which Laptop brand should i go for !!!

by eyan2013 / May 30, 2013 7:36 AM PDT


I'm in a pickle I've never been this confused buying a laptop. At first, i had my eyes on the Samsung Series 3 N350 and someone suggested i should keep my options open and look for something like Dell or Sony and after hours of Google-ing i need help BIG TIME !!!

Which brand would you go for and why ?
Sony or Dell Or Samsung.

Also, is it worth buying a touch-based laptops and correct me if i'm wrong but, i don't think it wise to go for a i7 (unless strictly for gaming purpose) in my theory the faster the processing speed, the more it heats and more the laptop life span decreases.

Here's my budget :
In Indian Rupees 40-50000 INR (Indian Rupee) ,
In dollars 710-880 $ ,
In Pounds 467-580 £.

I'm searching for a laptop with a better build and design quality ,my main line of work relies on PS(Photoshop) and AE (After Effects) with an addition to keep up with latest gaming for keeps Wink anything that's super fast and has a lot of storage like 1TB.

Any help would be great.

It's a bit more than what I noted but my kid seems to be playing games and more on the model I noted but the one you linked to is better for your gamer crowd.

Thanks again ,

LoL i'm sorry i'm gonna get a lot of hate for this but i prefer playing games on a 360 i know i know i'm lame but mehh !!! i like it full screen and 1080 P.

Coming back, in your opinion on a better brand do you think Samsung is good at making laptops that last long. I had a horrible experience with HP boy what a mistake that was.

I'm just a little concerned on how Samsung makes it laptops i did tons of research everything points to older posts dates like 2010 or 2011.

Dell is know for faster speed and Sony for better design and lol now i have Asus to think after

Dame i didn't know it was this hard getting a laptop.

I didn't find dell was for speed.

I find most designs are from Intel or AMD and the makers just polish it with their own stuff. That samsung also sports a quick resume that is quite nice. I have this Samsung rc512 and I would buy it again.

Sony on their better models seem to show me a better screen but what you noted is a fine screamer.

Sony or Dell Or Samsung: on these 3 brands, i suggest Sony, one of the best laptop brands.

For your budget, you can go to: Dell Inspiron or Sony Vaio
other brands:
Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 - 13 inch
ASUS VivoBook S400CA-DH51T 14-Inch

I wouldn't concentrate on brands.
by orlbuckeye / June 4, 2013 10:02 PM PDT

But concentrate on models. Typically a 500 laptop of any brand isn't built as good as a 1500 laptop from any brand. Remember none of the components inside a laptop are made by the company whose name is on the outside except maybe MSI or Asus.
