    Okay so the thing is that my desktop pc is weared out. I'm looking for a laptop now to get more flexibility.

    I was thinking detachable/hybrids because I can use touchscreen more freely and it would feel right.

    So far I found HP splits and yogabook.

    I need a real good suggestion for a cheap and good performing hybrid laptop. I'd be interested in surface 3 too but the screen size is way too small isn't it? And also I have to buy a keyboard additionally (someone said its $200)

    Can anyone suggest me any laptop? Oh yeah and foldables are welcome too. Just the keyboard shouldn't be an issue while using touchscreen.

    I am looking for 13" + screen, decent hard disk and processor can work out according to price.

    I am in India so availability would be a problem too but I would be able to get one from US or UK. So hit me up with your ideas please.

    Thank you.

    Hey , I am from New Delhi
    I ended up buying a Lenovo flex 10 quad core processor notebook (I also opted for office 2013 home and student edition ). Specs are decent as you will get a bay trail processor , 2GB ram (one can expand it ) , 500GB hard drive , HD camera , and its a touchscreen lol (comes pre installed with windows 8 but you may update it to windows 8.1 without any issues )
    There is another Lenovo flex 10 model which is a Celeron dual core processor with 2GB ram , 500GB hard drive and comes pre installed with office 2013 home and student edition. I didn't opted the dual core because it was slow in daily task. Both of them can be easily converted in a lap-stand ? , find out more here :- Flex 10 Dual-Mode Laptop | Affordable, Thin, & Light 10.1" Multitouch Notebook | Lenovo (IN)

    I gifted my Acer iconia w4 to my sister. this tablet(if you attach a keyboard it will act like a laptop ) Intel atom processor. 2GB ram , 64GB ssd with expandable via SD card.HD display with a 5MP back camera , front I didn't remember but it was OK for Skype calls. Battery on this was excellent , I got uptown 10 hours on a single charge where as Lenovo flex gave me 3-4Hours battery life backup.
    regarding prices I got this from efutre outlet in Nehru place , Lenovo flex 10 for 28,990 INR where as Acer iconia for 29,000 INR.

    Hey, thanks for reply. I am from New Delhi as well.

    I guess I'd be looking for a updated model of i3 or i5 to be futuristic. Atom is a strict no because of low processing power. I'd be installing many desktop apps so it'll not work out for me.

    Also 10" screen? Isn't it too small? I mean if you hold your lappy against any other how much of a difference is it? I'm curious coz its been long since I've used laptops.

    Also do you use it as a primary laptop?
    Thanks. :)

    You can go for dell laptops but they very bit expensive 40-50K if you want one in touchscreen.

    A Surface Pro 3 has more screen area than a 13" laptop, and the type covers are $129, not $200.
