Hehe you are actually looking for a $1800 laptop especially for screen type, VR experience and RAM. :))

Anyway, let me try my best to find one for you, under $900, but I am wondering if you could give up VR things as it requires high-end video performance.
Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I am still fine without great VR experience if it is too expensive, even entry level VR will be fine. My main interest is the audio & video capabilities. Please suggest me the best budget laptop which fulfills my needs.
Laptop technician: bbao, Senior Laptop User replied 6 months ago
Sure. Will do.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Since my main need is for a great entertainment laptop in the budget friendly department.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Please kindly answer
Laptop technician: bbao, Senior Laptop User replied 6 months ago
Here you go.As per your all requirements except the budget of $900, it should be Dell XPS 13.Given All requirements with uncompromised or similar performance, the most close series is Acer Swift 7. Please see the spec details below.https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/models/laptops/swift7
Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Both the laptops are too expensive for my budget, especially the XPS 13. Please suggest more budget friendly laptops which are great for entertainment.
Laptop technician: bbao, Senior Laptop User replied 6 months ago
Please be aware thst the shown price tag are list prices in USD, or the recommended prices by the vendor. So I think it is reasonable to get a brand-new under or around $900 from stores or online stock such as eBay or Amazon.
Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Laptop technician: bbao, Senior Laptop User replied 6 months ago
I am not suggesting XPS 13. It just shows my initial conclusion was correct: you were expecting a $1800 hardware at $900.The Acer Swift 7 series are in your $900 scope. Please search for it on eBay, then you can know the real prices.
Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Still the laptops are expensive since I am an expat working in India the prices for both laptops is around $1450 but please suggest more budget friendly laptops.
Laptop technician: bbao, Senior Laptop User replied 6 months ago
Okay, no worries. Please wait for a while.

Laptop technician: bbao, Senior Laptop User replied 6 months ago
BTW, will you consider pre-owned computers? The prices may be significantly reduced for the same performance.

How about this one?https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Inspiron-15-7000-7577-Gaming-Intel-Core-i5-7300HQ-8GB-256GB-SSD-GTX-1060/253311748487
Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
depending on the wear and tear of the laptop being as good as new with warranty. I would still be fine with it, though purchasing from EBay doesn't provide the same assurance as purchasing a new laptop, namely the company checking the product for any defects. There is lot of trust issues involved.If it recieves as good as new rating it is much better otherwise trusting the seller from a classfield newspapers or websites can be very risky and easy to get scammed from the seller for faulty products.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The product offers without Ebay verification can be too good to be true
Laptop technician: bbao, Senior Laptop User replied 6 months ago
Where are you located? Or, where will the laptop to be delivered to?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I am living in Hyderabad for the past 3 years after shifting to the country. I checked in EBay India the price is around $1206
Laptop technician: bbao, Senior Laptop User replied 6 months ago
Which product is it for the $1206 USD?
Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Dell Inspiron 7567 7th gen
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The lowest listing in the site for the product.
Laptop technician: bbao, Senior Laptop User replied 6 months ago
it seems you have found the best?
Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I am very confused since I want the best laptop in my budget otherwise there will be a lot of buyers remorse & opportunity cost which I am worried about. You mentioned Dell Insipron 7567 so I searched in EBay India since I dont think it would get shipped from the EBay from the other country since it would be too far for shipping, but it's still very expensive in India.
Laptop technician: bbao, Senior Laptop User replied 6 months ago
How was your experience to purchase from overseas and ship to India? Good or bad?
Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I believe I would have to pay the shipping charges since it would be costly to ship from a foreign country to India since it would be far which would easily take it around $100 dollars easily. So I am worried about that. It would take total cost to minimum $1020.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It might even be $1100 total price since aeroplane/ship/truck might even cost around $200 to ship from California to Hyderabad. How much would it cost I am not exactly sure since I have never bought from overseas since i worry it would increase price significantly. I can only guess since travelling alone would easily cost that much for petrol & drivers.Please kindly suggest how much would be shipping charges, since you would have much better knowledge than me about it, since I don't have much idea about it.

Ever considered Amazone India? I notice the website does sell laptop and is well organised.
Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Amazon India sells the Inspiron 7567 for $1301 & $1469 which is too expensive.

Regarding calculating international postage cost, just give your postcode on the product's Postage tab on eBay, then it will calculate for your automatically.

Okay I see.
Ever considered buying it from Hong Kong? If you have chance to travel overseas, arrange a stop in HK and buy a good laptop at its duty free area in or out of airport.
Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Even that would cost a lot since I have in aeroplane to Hong Kong, then I would have to go to a place a meet with the person, then I would have to go back from plane and then car to home which would also easily cost above $150 still very expensive. If I purchase around 920 it would be easily cost 1100.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Sorry I thought buying from EBay in Hong Kong so I thought about the meeting. Even travelling to Hong Kong on return flight would be expensive since due to Aeroplane ticket prices.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Tickets from Hyderabad to Hong Kong is around $780 to $1050 which is almost as high as my budget for laptop.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The round flight to Hong Kong is around $500 from nearby airport which would significantly increase the laptop price & add some more for car travel to home. 900 would become minimum 1430.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Is the laptop shipping from California to Hong Kong free & if it is can EBay provide me another shipping company to ship it to home after the 1st shipping company delivers it to that location.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It would be great if EBay can provide me 2nd shipping company to deliver it from Hong Kong to Hyderabad without me having to go there.
