Hi, need some help in choosing a laptop.

Preferred Brand: None
Budget: preferably <RM 2000, but will consider up to RM 2500
Usage: college work, medium gaming, watching movies
Preferred screen size: None

Hoping to get one with at least i5 and 4GB RAM. A large hard disk is not necessary. Battery life minimum 3 hours continuously (if possible?)

I will be carrying the laptop to school and back, about 20 mins walk.

Thank you for the opinions!

Thank you for the suggestions.

I heard the Dell Inspiron 14R (not sure whether special edition or not) has some problem with the motherboard. Is it true?

One shop I visited offered me Asus A43SD, but free RAM upgrade to 4GB (originally 2GB) @RM1999. Will this affect the warranty?

Thank you again!

I'm not aware of motherboard problems on the 14R hmm.gif
The Asus A43Sd is quite outdated already, you can get newer-spec laptops at that price nod.gif
Nope, installing RAM won't void warranty icon_rolleyes.gif

If weight and screen resolution isn't going to be an issue I'd say go for the 15R SE otherwise go for the 14R SE. But if you really are into photo editing you might want to go for the 15R SE with full HD screen (order online and get rm200 redemption to 2,999). http://www.dell.com/my/p/inspiron-15r-se-7...ron-15r-se-7520

That is a different variant. Find the model with the FHD screen. Not in the customizing part.

Just asking. You did some homework there icon_idea.gif

That will depend on you. You can go to the store to check for the price. Perhaps it will be cheaper.

Most people get it from the website because you can customize and all. Good features smile.gif
