All the laptop prices are going to increase for a month or so, because of the huge demand of HDDs. Please invest ASAP. Erodov and ASUS Customer care told the same thing.. 28.3 is a good price. I got it for 28.7 from Chennai ASUS seller.
He's a reputed seller. That's for sure.. You can consider buying from him. His rates are definitely better than the official guys. I'll be getting one myself this month-end (after getting my salary :D). This is his website.. http://technotronicsindia.in/store/
