12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.
I am currently using a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series one - i5 7th Generation. HP is also fine. Haven't tried any other brand.

13. What country do you live in? Pakistan

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
The specs I require are Core i7 11th Gen, 512 SSD or 256 SSD + a HDD. RAM can be either 16 or 8 GB. If it is 8, I will just add another 8.

I have shortlisted few options but couldn't find any reviews for these so I thought to ask here.
  1. Dell Vostro 3500 Laptop
  2. HP 15-DW3009nia
  3. Dell Inspiron 15 5502
  4. HP 15-DY2013CA
I have read somewhere on internet that Vostro has heating problems - is that true? For HP ones, I am not really sure about the build quality.

Let me know your thoughts.
