    If you looking to play games, get a desktop.
    Asus laptop in discussion here has a GT540, which is a very capable card.
    Better options are available, however it will cost more.
    And dont expect a sub 40K laptop to play upcoming games at on full hd res and ultra settings.

    I got the Asus K Series K53SV-SX521D Laptop ordered from Flipkart.com...Trust me at 47k this laptop does everything and s defnitely VFM. I trust Asus as a brand. People dont understand that Asus is also a hardware manufacturer and therefore is able to substantially reduce the price of its laptops...not because of cheap quality! You can very well play all 2009-10 games at 60fps (beyond which its all useless waste of fps) and the more recent ones like mw3, crysis2 etc arnd 40fps with high details...

    Some cons of this machine: battery life in the least power hungry "quiet office" mode turns arnd to be 3 1/2 hours. You were looking for 4-5hrs rite?
    The speakers on this machine though are Altec Lansing, at fullvolume or even 80% sometimes crackle, you know what I mean.
    A little noisy dvd drive& a lil flex in the keyboard.

    But gotta tell you, none of the above were deal breakers for me. You get used to them honestly!

    Cheers!
