so I am getting a laptop soon and I am not sure which one to get...
I need it mainly for school work also to study -powerpoint presentations, microsoft excel, word etc-
it has to have smooth performance. I'll also use it to surf the internet of course. it doesn't have to have a touch screen... I want a laptop not a netbook or something like surface pro.
it can be any model, but i would prefer a newer one. ummm i7 processor also a 15" or above
screen size. theres also colors for laptop right and I dont want any bright colors black or silver or grey would be perfect.
also the battery life has to be moderate not to short you know? and for the storage capacity it can't be too small.
I cant buy online and as for the pricing it can range anywhere from 700USD to 800USD(about MYR2500 - MYR2900 -MYR= Malaysian Ringgit) -a little over would be fine but in this range-
is there laptops with all the microsoft stuff already installed or do I have to buy it separately?

PLEASE ANSWER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE I REALLY NEED IT. THANK YOU.

-> (-) it is also 4GB RAM , less powerful graphics (+) but its lesser in price RM2399 you can add another 4 GB ram if you can spend extra.

But dont forget to see my first suggestion ^ DELL Inspiron 15 5548-50814G-W8 laptop. it has the best spec among all.it will be a very good choice.

Microsoft office, excel etc are not installed by default. you should get that separately.

but you can ask (request) that softwares from store vendor or laptop dealers which you are buying laptop. i think they will install those softwares for free of cost. you can also request them to install many other software which are necessary to do day to day activities. dont feel shy to ask, you are buying product more than 2500 ringgit!! :)

ill give you some more laptop options you can ask them in shops :-

in asus many are 4GB ram. in future you will require 8GB to do most of the tasks. but you can upgrade it later,

you can buy this model in asus ->

in HP ->

in lenovo most laptops are out of your budget.

and if you also like some laptop model in stores, note it down & send me the model number.
