    Hi friends,
    I want to buy a new laptop and my budget is 40,000 to 50,000 Rs/-.
    Mostly need it for Internet Surfing, Programming, movies and games too.

    I'm Not a gaming freak but will play few games occasionally.
    Games released upto GTA IV, Call of duty 4 must have to be playable in it. (Not concerned about new releases.)


    After searching a lot on internet, I ended my search with following 2 options in hand.


    ZENITH DIRECTOR PLUS Ultra --> 45,000
    Dell Studio 15 --> 48,000

    (I dont know the exact prices. :( )


    I guess the competition is only between Zenith & Dell in this price range.
    I've read lot of good reviews of Zenith Director Plus Ultra.
    I dont have any complaints about Zenith Company as I'm still using the Zenith's Desktop PC for last 5 years without a single problem.

    So what would you suggest me guys ?
    Which one should I go for ?
    What will be its price ?


    Thanks In Advance. :)

    Although you have not faced any problems with Zenith, but when it comes to laptop then DELL must be given preference any day.

    Zenith laptop has battery & service related problems.

    Go for DELL studio 15.It will fit in to your budget & has the graphics card in it as well as HDMI sound.

    The Dell is certainly a good option, but if you aren’t set on only those two brands, the Asus G50 might also be a good option for an affordable gaming laptop for you. It retails at around $899 USD, which (after converting the currency), is well under your budget.
    Do you have any other criteria for what would be a good fit in a laptop for you? Screen size, laptop weight, or anything like that?

    Anyone using/reviewed HCL Leaptop T39 machines? Seems great configuration matching Dell (comes without vista, who needs it anyway!!!). The leaptop seems to combine good looks and better feel than Dell. At 42K in the online store, seems a fair price and machine

    If the Dell is in your budget range, another that might work out for you is the Sony Vaio NS290J, which is the same price, and has similar features. It's definitely a little heavier, but if that is not an issue, you shouldn't have a problem with it.
    I'm not too familiar with the specific Acer model you mentioned, but in my experience with the Aspire line, they've proven to be pretty reliable and affordable machines.
    You might want to also check this site out: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-laptop-scout/default.aspx. It's a good little resource for seeing some systems that might be similar to the laptops you have in mind, then doing a little compare and contrast between them.
    I hope it's useful.
