    Hi All ,

    I'm looking out to buy a new laptop which will be primarily used for surfing, watching videos, a little bit of coding and casual gaming.

    Preferences :

    4 GB RAM
    2 GB Graphics card
    USB 3.0 ports
    i5 or i7 ( 3rd gen preferably)

    price under 45K :(

    Earlier I was planning on HP G6 2004TX, but now I read that 3rd generation processors are due... I shall wait for couple of months..

    I would like to go for the 3rd gen only if its going to be cheaper or same as 2nd gen so that I can future proof my laptop somewhat..

    Guys help :)

    Yup, 3rd gen. will be priced almost same as current 2nd gen. processors. But availability is an issue. You need to wait for a month atleast for IVB to be widely available.

    neither. every laptop manufacturer launches products at some specific price. some offer good value, other miss. when you are ready to buy bump this thread as 3rd gen i3 & i5 with descent graphics card will take a few more months to appear.

    Not necessarily i7.. it can be i5 as long as it can fall in my budget 45k..can be stretched 1k ~ 46k max

    I'm ready to buy as soon as its available.. you mean HP /Sony neither of them offer good value :O?
    Few more months meanning approx 3 months or even more ?? . Le tme know

    Dell laptops are good.
    Some of them had heating issues but I don't now the newer ones have it.
    And they are quite durable.Far better than HP, Lenovo(not thinkpads), HCL, toshiba.

    Hmm.. then will have to wait for feedack on the heating issue.. if this newer ones with 3rd gen processors will have it ...
    Mostly why Dell wont put a USB 3.0 port in the newer versions... thats kind of not good

    Also is the price of this dell lappi - 52.5 k worth ? - Dell 5110
    i5 3rd gen , 4GB RAM , 2GB ATI Radeon , 1 TB HDD

    thoughts ?

    Where are the genies and gurus .. ? :D:razz:
