i have always been attracted to ultrabooks and ever since my present laptop started having problems , I am thinking of buying an ultrabook.
My budget is 55000 rs and I want an i5 processor with good RAM and a dedicated Graphics Card.
My question is are ultrabooks reliable are the value for money or will it be better to buy a high end normal laptop.
i am not a traveler, my laptop usage is surfing , movies and games.
ANS: Choosing a laptop or to be precise choosing your mean machine has always been tough choice as now there is a large pool to choose from ranging from Windows 8 equipped devices to chrome books that are built serve all your needs regarding work & staying connected to outer world. As per your requirement here goes the list.
So Considering your requirement & aesthetics the Acer Aspire V3-571G will be a perfect choice with i5 2nd generation, 4GB ram, 2GB graphics card & 500GB disk space. As you mentioned that you won't be needing a machine for travel purpose but machines like this are designed to perform every need be it being a work horse or entertainment. The other alternative you can consider is Lenovo ThinkPad T420 but that will miss out on dedicated graphics that you can add by paying around 2K extra bucks.
For the solution of to choose between a ultrabook or laptop i would recommend reading the previous post on netbooks vs notebooks as there i clearly mentioned the difference on the aspects of usage & hardware specification.
Hope it will prove helpful for you for the rest you can ask in comments till then happy computing.
