    hey ! Apologies for being away, was travelling & busy with work.

    Now, need to buy a laptop for my brother.

    Following pointer needs to be kept in mind -

    1. He's not a gamer
    2. Screen size 15" +
    3. Normal video editing, audio mixing etc etc.
    4. Would prefer "i" proccy series
    5. Decent looks
    6. HDMI would be an add on
    7. Budget - Well, if the above in below 30k, i wont mind :)


    Please advice.

    Peace & Cheers
