Asus - https://www.amazon.in/dp/B0C7R342NJ
Dell - https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B0BQJD5P52/
Read serious negative reviews about Dell G15-5520 related to battery/over-heating.
Battery gets depleted in around 2 hours on normal usage (battery power off and not gaming).
Battery cannot last even 40 minutes when gaming with battery power off, read Gaming is not suggested without AC Power on as per many aricles.
CPU over-heating is another major concern in Dell which pushes me towards ASUS
Even after Windows 11 clean install, end-users kept complaning about same.

Here are some similarities/differences between models I have selected as per my budget:
(Will purchase additional 8 GB RAM with any model, I plan to purchase)
Both SHARE same processor
Same GPU - Nvidia RTX 3050 (4G DDR6)
Storage 512 gb ssd

Important Key differences:
Dell 1 x SSD slot VS Asus 2 SSD slots
Dell 56wh battery vs Asus 90 wh [BAttery life is most important in this case]
Dell 8 GB DDR5 Ram vs Asus 8 GB DDR4 Ram

I need a good mid-range gaming laptop with good battery life, where Asus superseeds Dell.
Any reasons, which laptop I must select ?

Prime requirements:
Light gaming

I was just saying that my laptop is the same as the one you are looking at, except with better specs, so I have an accurate idea of what the cooling is like.  I'm not saying you should get that one unless you want to pay the significant amount more it would cost.

My model (the FX507ZM) doesn't appear to be available on Amazon India.  The closest I could find is this one, which is the exact same as my model except with a Ryzen 7 6800HS instead of an i7-12700H.  This would result in slightly (maybe 10-15%) worse performance, but significantly better battery life.  Here's a link to it: ASUS TUF Gaming A15 (2022), AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS, 15.6" (39.62 cm) FHD 300Hz, 6GB GeForce RTX 3060 Gra...

Thanks for quick reply, laptop i have selected also has a 90wr battery like the one you posted.
So I assume battery should not be an issue, as far as AMD vs Intel battle, i am a fan of intel since 2 decades and will prefer going with same only.

Just because a laptop has a 90 Wh battery doesn't mean it will last long.  For example, laptops with a Ryzen 9 7945HX last less than three hours watching a YouTube video even with a 99.99 Wh battery (the largest legally allowed on planes in the US).

I also prefer to support Intel, but their recent commitment to locking down CPUs turned me off from them a bit.  For example, Intel has disabled undervolting on all 12th and 13th gen laptops, with their excuse being a security vulnerability called Plundervolt.  However, strangely, the HX laptop CPUs still have undervolting unlocked, showing that it's really not a security vulnerability, they just want people to pay more for a feature that should be available on any CPU.
