Ankur Bhai Its going beyond my budget. Have flipped many websites and found i3 with 4gb and 500gb will cost me around 30k-35k. Depend on brand.Right now I use a 4 yr old dell studio core i3 2 gen + 4GB ram. I am just able to manage my workload with this config.
problem with this laptop: It hangs when creating bigger panos in PS + exporting multiple files in LR + overheating + slowness in processing pictures (in LR, PS)
I would like to create timelapses in future.
personal use only.
If you plan to have similar usage i think minimum config should be : i7 + 8 GB RAM + IPS display + good graphics card
Going a little technical... Most laptops have two ram slots.. Check the hp laptop if it occupies both the slots or not. That is if it has 2gb ram in each slot, if yes then while upgrading you would have to sacrifice one of the 2gb ram chips... But if you upgrade it on the spot from the same seller then maybe you can negotiate with him of buying back that 2gb ram and selling you additional ram.. Also need to ensure the additional ram you will buy is compatible with existing ram chip in the laptop.One of my Friend told me to go for HP he is saying i3 4th gen with 4Gb ram and 1TB HDD under 30k. To increase ram add 2500. What say?
