A separate thread dint help me.. :(
So posting it again here..

I have chosen the below model .
(Purpose : Normal home/office use with entry level gaming(like fifa 09, cod-4 mwf, nfs-mw)

Lenovo-G560 59-050863
Rs.24790

My concern now is,

#Does this come with a DVD writer ?
#How good is the onboard gfx? (will it play 1080p movie?)
#How worst is the 5400rpm hdd ?(when compared to 7200rpm drives)
#How is the after sales support of lenovo in India ?

#and the most important, what is the back up time given by its 6 cell battery ?


or

shall i switch to Dell(Dell™ Vostro™ 1015) ?

Planning to buy in next few days.. guide me..

1. Yes. it does come with DVD burner
2. playing 1080p alone shouldn't be an issue. playing it while multitasking can result in stutter.
3. majority of budget laptops comes with 5400rpm drives. so, this shouldn't be an issue.
4. Lenovo has decent A.S.S in India. Though it's not good as Dell's, it should be better than Acer's or HP's.

PS: what config are you getting for Dell Vostro and for how much?

Will the inspiron model be able to run crysis @min gfx ?

and you dint comment anything about the g560's onboard gfx and battery back up ..
 

desiibond

Bond, Desi Bond!
yes. It should be able to run crysis at minimum settings.

coming to battery backup, these budget laptops with 6 cell battery will give around 2-2.5hr battery backup.

so with an extra 3k, i get better performer than vostro rite ?

now comparing with lenovo's g560.. the former is way too cheaper. If u could state about its gaming performance, i can arrive at some decision .

don't even think of playing mid to high end games with G560. that onboard at the max can do HD video. :)

fine .. one last query..

Is intel's onboard gfx better than ati HD5470 ? because there are many other models at more or less same price but with intel's graphics solution .

while hd5470 gives 40-50 fps in crysis warhead at low setings, intel onboard gpu gives less than 10 fps or may not even start the game. Intel is nowhere near to AMD in producing graphics chips.

@desibond..: confusion again..

Found a new inspiron model today in dell's site.(I'm damn sure, it was not there yesterday)

Dell™ Inspiron M501R (Evalue code-T541110IN8) : 34k

AMD Phenom™ II Triple-Core Mobile Processor N850 (2.2GHz, 1.5M, 3.6GT/s)
ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 550v 1GB
3 GB DDR3 RAM
Rest of the things are same with no OS..

Pls compare ..

i3 vs triple core
&

CAN ANYONE SUGGETS ME WHICH IS THE BEST LAPTOP AMONG THESE :-

1.SONY VPCS137GG
2.SONY VPCEA36FG
3.SONY VPCEC35FG
4.HP PAVILION DV6-3050TX

I WANTED TO HAVE A LAPTOP WITH GOOD CONFIG SO THAT I CAN PLAY GAMES ALSO ON MY LAPPY.MY BUDGET IS 70K MAX.
MY WISH CONFIG IS:-
INTEL CORE I5 OR I7
4 GB DDR3 RAM(MIN.)
500 GB 7200 RPM HDD(MIN.)
GOOD GRAPHICS CARD THAT CAN PLAY THE CURRENT GAMES LIKE MAFIA WARS 2,NFS HOT PURSUIT ETC AT FULL RESOLUTION OR ATLEAST AT MIDDLE RESOLUTION.

PLEASE RECOMMEND ME SOME OTHER MODELS ALSO FROM HP,SONY AND DELL ONLY.
thanks in advance..waiting for your replies..

from the laptops you have given, i would recommend the hp because its got i7 720qm processor. Moreover none of the sony's have a 7200 rpm drive as you want. If you want to go sony, the vpcec35 fg wins on screen size, though it is not a full hd screen. it runs at 1600 by 900 onlu.

read the post above yours and choose other models as well. the xps 15 is a good choice with a 2gb gt435m GPU and blu ray .presence usb 3.0 is a big plus. you can also see if any of hp's envy series fits your budget. the envy 17 is above yours, but the envy 14 can be a choice.

the lenovo y560 contains an i7 and hd 5730 at just 60k, which is much less, considering the fact that it has very good performance as well.

budget 45k, please suggest some laptops for a friend. Preferably Dell. he will be buying it from India only. He primarily wants a Graphics Card and core i5 with a 500GB HDD.
