I am planing to buy a laptop for around 55k. Which one will give HQ series processor or some AMD processor comparable with intel HQ-series. At least DDR4 ram 4/8Gb. Good external graphics. Less heat and weight. Actually I found one Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming series for $849 but I don't know how to get that.
Test aberration ("Integrated Graphics" not detected.) ?!?!
