Guys,

Moved to US recently and sold my desktop. Now I need a laptop here.
Lets start with the questionnaire

1) What is your budget? (INR or USD): USD 1000


2) What size & weight consideration (if any) would you prefer?
Thin and Light; 12" - 14" screen
Mainstream; 15" - 16" screen


3) What are the primary tasks you will be performing with this notebook?

1. Surfing internet
2. Watching movies
3. Casual gaming
4. If time permits, running some data analytics applications

5) Any typical configuration in your mind you're eying for ?
I have found this HP laptop that looks good: HP ENVY 15t Slim


4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
a. Like: NA
b. Dislike: Apple


6) Anything else you would like to say?
Screen resolution ( 768p (HD) / 900p / 1080p (Full HD)): Full HD
Battery back up ( normal (3-4hrs) / extended (5-7hrs)): Extended will be good
Purchase place ( Online (eg - flipkart, infibeam) / Local / Abroad (do mention the country)): USA, open to online purchase too
Backlit keyboard
Skylake i7 CPU
NO discreet graphics card
Atleast 8GB RAM
If we can squeeze a SSD in, it will be good but not a deal breaker.
Lighter is better, need to carry it to office daily.
Extended warranty

I have given one link to a HP laptop, I would prefer something with similar configuration. Budget is strictly not extendable.

You could look into the lenovo thinkpads or some asus ux models. I am not sure there are many laptops with the skylake cpu though. Plus I am bit unsure of what screen size you want, 12 - 16?

The HP Envy seems like good laptop that will fit your needs. The only thing I do not like about HP laptop is the unusually large trackpad.

As for Lenovo... They do not have any Skylake laptops yet. I believe a couple of consumer Skylake laptops (such as the IdeaPad Y series) is supposed to be released later this month. New 12.5" ThinkPad Yoga 260 and 14" ThinkPad Yoga 460 are expected to be released in November.

I would prefer a 14 inch or even 13. However, i do not see any 13/14 inches model with i7H processor. So I will go ahead with 15 inch and nothing more.

It is still a bit early since Skylake officially was launched in Sept for laptops. The longer you wait the more options you will have available to you. But if you need to purchase a laptop quickly then just go with the HP, unless you see other laptops that interests you.

That would have been the best option. However, it is urgent. For personal work, I am borrowing others systems. While they are kind enough, it is inconvenient for them as well as me.
