^^ look for Acer Gateway NE56R .. it's PDC B960 offers better processing performance compared to similarly priced E-1200 apu based laptops.



your budget ??

i M looking for some thing near to 30-35 K ...as I doubt APU will be able to take load for software like Nsys , ProE , AUTOCAD, Catiya ... which are cpu intense progs. and m not a fan of APU either.

My basic concern in battery lyf and CPU , RAM, as storage can b increased by n extrnl one.

So, I have a very simple question. I was looking to buy a laptop within a week and was looking for some suggestions. I want a machine which can allow me to do all round work seamlessly. I want to be able to play all the latest games, edit videos and pics, watch movies, surf the internet and listen to music. My budget is 60-70k. I can extend it to 75k if need be. I am not really bothered about memory that much since I already have 4TBs of External Hard Drives. Hence, I'd be fine SSD machines. I am also not particularly concerned about touch displays. I have my eye on the Samsung NP550P5C-S051N. Should I get this one or are there better machines in the market for that price? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

P.S. Also suggestions for any added accessories if needed, please!

Colin(or any other mild cleaning agent) + soft cloth
Don't worry for flexing of screen, be sure 2 place it on a hard surface, i mean screen & not laptop(placing on a table upon a napkin does for me).
AFAIK the screen is made of some kind of scratch resistant material(for glossy screens) so don't worry a lot, just don't put it to test either(none on mine, not yet)

For keyboard protection u may use this kind of skin.. (locally they are cheaper)

Get a cleaning kit from local IT market. If you can't find one then get a small piece of cotton cloth(for e.g. the one used in clearing spectacle lenses.) alongwith colin.
You can also use cotton balls or soft tissue papers. And if you sceen bends with pressure , then try placing the laptop screen lid touching/pressing the bed/pillow , when you clean it. That should take care of it.

For the softwares you are gonna be using, you should definitely opt for intel CPUs, as their math logic process capabilities are unmatched.

I think you should choose a CPU clocked around 3Ghz for good performance.

for upto 27k get this [ it has no os pre-installed so install win 7 / 8 ]
Fujitsu Lifebook AH532 Laptop (2nd Gen Ci3/ 4GB/ 750GB/ No OS) - Fujitsu: Flipkart.com

for 31k

you can install win 8 by completely removing DOS OS but you better use win 7.

The laptops are just meant for me!

What's the actual purpose of 1 GB graphics memory?
There's 1 more thing:I already have a PC with 32 bit Windows 7 installed and I heard from a friend that 32 bit applications don't work on 64 bit.
So I need to know similar laptops with 32 bit architecture.

The laptops mentioned by topgear in this post are just meant for me!Thanks!

Some of my doubts:

1)What's the actual purpose of 1 GB graphics memory?

2)There's 1 more thing:I already have a PC with 32 bit Windows 7 installed and I heard from a friend that 32 bit applications don't work on 64 bit.

3)Can I install Win 7 or Win 8 32 bit on a laptop with 64 bit architecture?

In layman terms : 1GB memory is the gpus frame buffer and primarily it's task is to store texture data for gpu to process and it's generally faster than system ram [ with proper memory type ] and takes less time for the gpu to get the data for process rather than requesting the data from the system ram thus causing low latency and faster processing time overall improving the gaming experience but the amount of data this gpu ram to hold depends also on the monitor resolution, gfx settings used in games and gpu's compute power and for 120P resolution 1GB should be enough but sometime manufacturer do add 1GB/2GB ram with gpus which don't have much processing power to process the data very efficiently .. rather than improving any performance at-all this unused video memory just remain dormnant and is a marketing gimmick only.

Don't listen to your friend .. 64 bit OS can run 32 bit apps very nicely and without any issue at-all and more and more softwares are coming with native 64 bit version nowadays.


the Samsung NP550P5C-S051N is a very good one but if you need better gaming performance have a look at this :
