Good sRGB can be a preference, same goes for display. My only gripe is the glare I get sometimes.

I'm not sure of the weight, my old one was 2kg so around there would be nice. Dual storage isn't necessary as well.

For minimum battery life, 4-5 hours would be good.

yeap read on lowyat website, speculated around May too..

wonder how much the price will be?
dont wanna get a y530 now with 1060 if in May the 2060 will be coming and not much of a price difference (say around 500 or so more from current y530 1060 price).

2060 is said to be better than a 1070 right.. dang.. dilemma now..

should i just get a temporary laptop instead?

Hi,

I'm looking for a laptop recommendations for my dad. His previous laptop is the Sony Vaio vpceg17fg; it's passed down to my sister. Sorry for the long post, I tried to be as thorough as possible.

The Requirements:

Usage: Mainly for work purposes [Microsoft Office], some net surfing with multiple tabs], some occasional Youtube and Movie watching and very light gaming [those require low resources, metroidvania ish, platformer type]

CPU: At least something similar as the older one [i3-2310M]. Can I get an I5 processor at this price range?

RAM: 4GB minimum, non-soldered, expandable.

Storage: SSD [256GB or empty slot and I put my own SDD] and another HDD Slot or DVD slot that I can convert to HDD slot, if possible.

Graphic: Integrated is fine but if discrete is available for the price, then discrete please.

Screen: 13+” or wider screen, 1080p. No idea about high/low sRGB as long it’s as good as the previous laptop, it’s okay. Non-touch type.

Battery life: Decent battery life [at least 4h], longer the better. [Replaceable battery]

Weight: As light as the possible as long as it fits all the requirements [2-2.5kg. The old one was at 2.3kg]

Others: Good warranty service; If possible back-lit keyboard;

Brand: No preferences as long has decent build quality and good service. Something with 2 years warranty if possible.

Budget: 2K-2.5K [Lower the better]


Any physical shop recommendation? I’m from Kampar, Perak but I doubt there’s many choices in Ipoh. Well be heading down to KL on the 21st/22nd, so thinking of buying then. Prefer not to buy through online store.
I'm thinking of possibly getting the laptop from Viewnet in Lowyat Plaza. Is that place okay?

Thank you in advance.

1. Why not buy from online store? Any reason?
2. You mean replaceable battery without opening bottom cover?
