Hello Youngisthan, Can you inform us what is the purpose of the laptop(i.e games, Video editing, Photoshop, etc), and the budget?

First of all sorry for such late reply.
Photoshop is the main purpose and budget is up to 35K to 40K.

1 Indian Rupee equals
0.017 US Dollar

So, he really probably means 40K Rupees = $680.00 US

I'd suggest a MSI or ASUS with an i5/i7 and decent discrete video card, ~$1200-1500 top for a 17"

Find one with dual drives and stick a 250Gig + SSD for the OS and files being worked on, and a 1T+ standard drive for storage.

Edit.

Ninja'd

For ~700US, get an i5 based machine, Acer or even HP will give good specs at that price.
