I'm looking for a light weight laptop which has a great screen(FHD or above) and doesn't break the bank. if its touch enabled even better. it doesn't need have a great processor but 4gb ram and a ssd for fast booting is necessary. thus the criteria are
light weight
FHD IPS screen or better
4gb ram
touch(if possible)
fast boot ssd but capacity doesn't need to be much. 128gb is fine
thanks in advance. products available in india are preferred.

For very light photo editing the Core M should suffice. You should watch the video reviews since the reviewers have actually used the UX305.

I am not familiar with Goat Simulator, but if it can run on a laptop with an Intel HD 4000 then it should run fine on the Core M. I think the Intel HD 5300's performance is between the Intel HD 4000 and Intel HD 4200.

well the ux305 is available in india. it has the same specs but has 4gb ram instead. and the dell ups is waaaaay overpriced here costing around 2000 usd. but its the one with the QHD+ display. is the core m potent enough for 1080p content? will it be able to do very light photo editing like 2 layers and 2 filters sort of stuff? and can goat simulation can be done on a okayish level on it?
