I'll be using the laptop mainly to build machine learning, deep learning models as well as well as databases. I'm aware that this sort of work entails a laptop with minimum 12 GB RAM, high end processors and a dedicated GPU but I currently cannot afford a laptop with that much power therefore any replies advising me to go for such a configuration is not helpful. I have a budget upto 45000 INR(approx 600 USD). I have shortlisted the two options listed below -

  1. Asus Vivobook 14 X412DA-EK503T [Was unable to find this model on Asus's website. If you scroll down you will find the specifications tab.]
  2. Dell Inspiron 5509 i3 configuration

The tools I'll be using most frequently:

  1. Visual Studio Code
  2. PgAdmin
  3. Postman
  4. Rstudio
  5. Jupyter notebooks
  6. Git
  7. Docker
  8. Figma(occasionally for wireframing and proto typing)

I'm going for 512GB SSD inspite of having to build databases mainly cos the databases I build will not be very big. I am not a gamer so the gaming experience is not important to me. I'm only interested in getting the most powerful system under this budget that can do a job on the tasks I mentioned earlier. Im looking for a definite choice between the 2 shortlisted options as well as recommendations that match my budget.
