Guys ...Need some urgent info regarding a laptop.

Lenovo 3000 G430 415333Q: this piece of lappy has good futures like dual core 2.00 GHz @ FSB 800 in New Montevina Platform, 1GB RAM@667, nVidia 9300M 256 and can be available in a price of 28500+4% VAT. so its a value for money. but need some info as i have found some mismatch details about it.

1. does in has 256 or 128 MB nVidia, i have spooked to dealer and they said its 256 as well as website also. Chip forum says its 128 and few says 256.
2. Can i upgrade the ram means additional slot available or not, if yes upto how much.

this piece lacking of attached bluetooth and camera, but both can be arranged within 1000 bucks.

if all going well, i will take it on 5th March.

Hi. I want to buy a new laptop. The Dell Studio 15 caught my eye.
I am going to customize it - 512 mb GP (ATI Radeon mobility HD4570), 64-bit Vista Premium (just coz it costs 100 more)

Now my question is whether to update the processor or not ?

its default is Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz - there's the option of making it 2.66 GHz at the cost of 9k. My only reason for considering it is whether the 2.4 processor can reaaaally max out the 512 mb gfx card

Excluding the processor customization the net cost is 52k

I am open to suggestions - please let me know if there are better config available at this price

I've seen some hp models offering nearly the same at cheaper prices but with AMD processors (Turion 64 X2).I am not quite confident about them

any help will be welcome

I was looking for a laptop to buy.
My budget is upto 75,000.

These are my main requirements

==================================================================================================
Processor: Intel 2.2 GHz onwards (If same speed, priority to TXXXX over PXXXX coz of 6 MB lvl. 2 cche)
RAM : 4GB DDR3
Hard Drive: 320 GB or more but must be 7200 RPM
Graphics Card: 512 MB. Willing to switch to 256 if not available.
Screen Size: Doesnt matter as long as its above 14".
Optical Drive: DVD multi. Not very keen on Blu-Ray.
Connectivity: WLAN, Bluetooth essential
==================================================================================================

P.S. Looks dont matter. Performance is priority.

I'v narrowed my search to a customized DELL Studio XPS 16. It shows Rs. 72000, but taxes are extra and wont be shown till I add to cart. Has anyone bought from the dell site? How much would the taxes come upto and is it reliable?

Dell is not my only choice, please give do me your opinions. Brands dont matter, as long as it has a year or more warranty in India with service centres.

Oh, and is there an Alienware outlet anywhere in the country? Just curious :)
 
my father is going to buy a laptop. the company is hcl (can't change it). suggest the best hcl laptop out in the market. i visited hcl website http://www.hclleaptops.in/ and the price of the maximum laptop was Rs57000. i was hoping to find a good gaming laptop but the top hcl laptop (HCL Leaptop Z-3919 ) has only "Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M-HD - Inbuilt in GM45 chipset" which won't play any of the new games even in low graphics. but other company laptops at the same price have good gaming capacity. but my father wants only hcl( as his friend works for hcl). so which is the best hcl gaming laptop? please suggest fast. thanks. sorry i didn't see this thread so i started a new topic.

Thanks in advance..

is there any budget constraint??

HP has released a new ultra portable 12" laptop (HP DV12) with AMD's new neo platform (1.6GHz Athlon processor + ATI graphics) and it's lot lot faster than any netbook available in the market now.

Friends,

I got a problem with my Sony Vaio (VGN-NR430E). It is not switching on at all. When given to Sony service centre, they said motherboard is gone and need to be replaced. The estimate given is Rs.21,000. Though the laptop is only 9 months old, it doesn't have warranty as it was bought in US :x

What shall I do? :sad:

Hello Guys!

Basically I need it for surfing internet,watching movies,Games (average ones).

Please advice me which one to choose - HP or DELL?
And if Dell,than what r the advantages of it than HP

Who says u can't get the service for Dell. Dell has the best service and after sales support in all of the MNC laptop companies. U don't have to exactly go to the service center like in the case of HP/Compaq, just ship the product and u r all done. As for comparing between the 2, Dell beats HP hands down. Dell maybe expensive a tad bit but that's what u r paying for the quality of the product and quality of the service. HP/Compaq devices have run into battery trouble lately and won't suggest it to anybody. As for support to, in Chandigarh, I've been to their center and it is operated by a complete bunch of mad@ss n00bs.
My friend's laptop, a HP-DV-4 series had its battery conked out and when we went for replacement, we explained the whole case but still they adamantly replied,"Sir, Iske barey main company ka engineer hi dekh k bateyega, hum aise battery replace nahin karke de sakte" :x After 15 days we got the laptop back but not with a new battery but a refurbished one. :x
I purchased 2 laptops last week only and none of them is HP/Compaq. I bought a Lenovo S10 for my sister and a Dell Studio 15 for myself. :cool:
