I needed some advice for a laptop.
Intended usage:
Some student work, presentations etc, Movies,little Gaming and internet.
Budget: about 50K.

I am looking for a config and have the foll specs in mind:
Processor: dualcore 2GHz+, 2+MB L2Cache
RAM: 2+GB 800+MHz DDR2 (or DDR3 even :D )
Screen Size: 15-16 inches.
Resolution: would prefer 1440x900 or higher (or 1366x768)
Gfx: good enough for little gaming.
OS: would really prefer sys to be w/o an OS (but most of the systems nowadays have Vista).

Till now, Dell Studio 15 seems the best bet.
with Core2Duo P8600, 3GB DDR2, 15.6", 320GB 7200rpm, 512MB Radeon HD4570 price comes to around 53K.
is it possible somehow to get this sys w/o Vista nd shave off a few bucks?
Is there a huge performance diff b/w 256 MB & 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD4570 ???

Please advise if u knw any other better config, than the one stated....
Thanks...

Hmm... I had already checked out existing threads on the forum. However, most of them are pretty old and most of those models are now phased out.
So any new suggestions are welcome...
thnx

Thanks a lot for the posts. Had already read 2 of them.
3rd was pretty informative.
Reading the reviews for Dell Studio 15 is tipping the scales in its favour. :)
But still, any new suggestions are welcome...

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:

Any suggestions?

Hi All,
I am interested in buying a netbook/mini notebook under 20K to supplement my desktop. The primary use will be surfing the web (downloading lots of files..), reading large PDFs & documents on the go and some basic multimedia viewing (viewing pictures, videos, songs).

I visited a few shops in Chandni Chowk, Kolkata but the only netbook under 20K
was the ASUS EeePC 900HA (1.6GHz Atom, 1GB RAM, Win XP Home, 160GB HDD, 5 hrs battery life)
It was available for Rs.17.5K + taxes.

I couldn't find the Lenovo S9/Acer Aspire one 9" models.
Lenovo S10 was really impressive; so was SAMSUNG NC10, but it was way beyond my budget.

Are the Acer/Lenovo 9" netbooks are still available in India ?

Also, how good is the ASUS Eee PC after-sales support?

Also, I hope the Atom 1.6Ghz CPU can handle firefox, thunderbird, VLC, Acrobat & Openoffice (not all at the same time though!:) ).

Hi everyone,
I'm going to buy a laptop. My budget is Rs. 50,000. I've been looking at the Dell Studio 15 and I think it's a good deal after upgrading the HDD to 500 GB. It has good graphics too.
I shall use my notebook for Internet/E-mail, Programming, Audio recording/editing, and some gaming. The ATi Mobility Radeon HD 4570 256 MB is good enough for games like F.E.A.R. but I think it cannot run Crysis. :| Will the 512MB version be better?

Also, I want to know if I have better options within my budget.

Thanks in advance,
~GR~

HD4570 won't be able to play crysis whatever amount of RAM it has. You may be able to play at ultra low resolution.
