    Default Laptop for programming and slight gaming :3

    Heading to uni soon.
    Need a lappy for programming and light gaming (titles to be played at medium or low i dont mind) .

    Please CAREFULLY read the requirements below before suggesting.

    1. Needs to have atleast 4 hours of battery life while running only Visual studio or one web browser.
    2. As light as possible. I should be able to carry it throughout the day(Not more than 2kgs)
    3. Backlit keyboard not required.
    4. 14" screen is enough.
    5. As less heated as it can get :3
    6. Easy to carry. (I don't mind if it is convertible)

    Budget- <70k (it might not be enough but do try to keep it under) {i have to buy a dslr >__<

    I need expert opinion on this :/
    After all these 'Chaona' in a laptop, one might simply suggest a Macbook but no, macs are really not that friendly for programming. Let the system be a lenovo, alienware i don't mind. And please don't suggest me to buy a pc. I am always on the move. I used to have a pc but i sold it cause it was only picking dust rather blowing steam -_-
    A bang for the buck would be much appreciated :3

    mac? y would anyone suggest tht!

    anyway take a look at this one
    http://startechbd.com/laptops-and-no...rice&order=ASC

    although it will get hot during gaming but usually it stays really cool. you can also look for the one with a nvidia 7series GPU

    Go to computer source and look for a laptop named Dell Vostro 5470. The website only lists 5460.
    It will have everything you need as well as the fact that it is light. Don't know the exact mass, but it was light enough when I
    was fiddling around with it in the store.

    A mac would have been perfect! But u don't want that I see...

    Lenovos tend to have awesome battery life. Plus most laptops sold in Bg are crap. Please go through review articles and get something solid.

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/7554/b...s-holiday-2013

    hope it helps.

    btw, ppl tend to act as if apple sells cansor products.. No they don't. Macs are awesome.

    i m .net developer and project manager of a Swiss soft company.
    I own both mac and win pc.
    Pls dont go for mac. to me its crap. ppl pls don't argue with me about this, that's my personal view and i m telling this from my experience.
    For development purpose a laptop is crap. Desktop is way to go.

    If u want to buy a lappy go for Lenovo with SSD.

    was before not now, they dont even want to compromise 1k in laptop from the price which they stated in their website and at least you cant reduce 6k for sure, unless the yoga laptop is also stated at 78k in startech website but i asked them yesterday how much they can compromise then they offered me 76k last so at least the hp laptop wont be less than 74kk unless you have extra khatir or something

    Just to clarify, you can get a Mac, install Windows and set that as your boot OS. If storage isn't an issue (since afaik you can't completely delete OSX) and you feel a Mac is still the best fit, then go for it. It will function like every other windows notebook.

    It will not. Bootcamp has compatibility issues at times. A Samsung series 9 is a better choice than MacBook if you want to run windows.

    Compatbility issues like what? I just know there's a delay for a update when a new Windows comes out. I didn't try 8, but when I tried 7 there was zero difference after installation of the driver package.

    sometimes wifi driver issues, have to wait for bootcamp update after major windows updates, fastboot not working as it is meant to be, brightness controls getting messed up sometimes etc. Nothing major or anything that cant be solved but why do you have to fiddle with things when you are buying something premium? Buy a series 7/9 and it works out of the box without any time waste.

    Also...there is this no-touch issue. Buying an ultrabook in 2014 without touch is moronic.
