I have shortlisted a few laptops as listed below:

Any idea on the availability of Lenovo Value Line G560 and it's price in India?
I would appreciate you guys can tell me which one to choose from the above or if there is any other model that you think would be better than the ones mentioned above. I dont have any brand preference as long as the product is good and has all the requirements mentioned above.

ok that looks cool, even I had it in my mind, how is the interior quality, hope no sharp edges.

i myself not own 1 yet, but from reviews, only sharp edge is in the PSU mounting area which may give u a few cuts. looks cool even without any LED fans. only negative point is, its nt toolfree.
 
^ what about 334 one, as I want use it after my present rig dies and replace it with amd cpu+amd chipset on board gpu board,however on its site it says of some restrictions of height for cpu cooler and gfx length and height, if it is admissible for normal mid range type rig then I would get it;-):)

Elite 334 wil cost in excess of 2k. ask krow abt 334. he know abt it much better. & as for gfx & hsf, HD58*0 should fit as cabby is spacy. but hsf may create problem if u choose the large 1s like Thor's Hammer for example.

thanks top gear, is it still available, anyways any other better models would be better,

It's available in techshop.in and now it's 2.9K but actual market price on the shops may be a little less :p

Please no online!

It has 3 yeras warranty as written on data-sheet :p

No buddy - you can get it by only ordering online as Tirupati guys told you it's not available is veryu little chance you could find it in any shop - search in the big shops and ou can also try asking thunder02.dragon.

@ karanTH85 - here's some alternative for you :p

Seasonic 380W around 2.5-2.77K
Seasonic 430W around Rs. 3.5-37K

gr8....i had an impression dat a minimum 500W PSU is needed for my config...but
if seasonic 430W or Gigabyte 460W can handle my config then its well & gud....:mrgreen:

hey guys.. need some suggestions.. i have to upgrade my pc and hav allocated a budget of 15000 bucks for it. I need to buy following parts:
1] mobo (should support pentium D processor as am not changing d cpu)
2] GFX card (gud enough to play cod4:modern warfare 2 at decent resolution)
3] RAM (enough to support games lyk cod4 and other heavy applications)
4] HDD (500gb wud be enough for me i suppose)

My primary concern is that i shud be as future proof as possible, so want to go for ddr3 ram and GFX card wid atleast 1gb of DDR3 memory, but dont know if this will fit in my budget. So please help me out and suggest something, also if u cud suggest a gud shop in nehru place,delhi, it wud really help me a lot.
Thanks in advance to all those who reply.

You need a LGA775 pin based mobo for your dual core processor and these boards supports only C2D and Core2Quad processors, not the latest Core i7/i5 processors. So you need a DDR3 based system so that you can at lease upgrade the ram in future.
Here goes your suggestion:

Motherboard: GA-G41MT-ES2L 2 DDR3 1333 MHz, 1 X16, 1 X1, 2 PCI slot @ 3.3k (Deltapage.com)
RAM:
Corsair 4GB DDR3 1600MHz C9 Titanium @ 5.8k
MSI HD5770 1GB GDDR5 @ 9.6k if you badly want Dx11 or XFX HD4870 1GB GDDR5 @ 9.4k

But let us know what PSU u r having. If you have local PSU, then you may need to go for a good PSU like Gigabyte 80 Plus Active PFC 460W @ 2.2k

Hello ,

I am Madhu, a Post graduate student in VLSI Design. I am a new reader of Digit. I was come across this mail ID in the january edition . Thank you for providing our products in your style....

Here is a problem i am facing with my PC. My PC configuration is as follows.

AMD Phenom X3 8650 2.3 GHzs processor,
ASUS M3N78-EM motherboard,
2GB DDR2 ZION hynex RAM,
160 GB Seagatte HDD,
BSNL Data One Broadband Internet Service,
ASUS VH192 19" monitor.

I am using the PC with MS Windows XP SP2 Operating System. While start up my system is very slow and after booting it takes time to connect to internet and also it requires more time for opening any application like media player, Nero etc. In fact it takes some time to settle, then only any application can be opened otherwise it gets hung. As i am having a triple core processor i am excepting the system to run faster than my earlier dual core processor(AMD only), where its not happening. I heard that the triple core of AMD is a flap,will you clarify on that please. I am playing Max Payne 2 game on the system which is working very slow while it is working pretty good on a Acer lappie which is having Intel Core 2 Duo processor. please help in sorting out the issue.

Will a transition to the following config makes my system better.?????

AMD Athlon II X2 245
ASUS or Gigabyte Suitable motherboard


I am having a problem with my monitor also. A shade running from bottom to up continuously. I am using Iball speakers. is that the speakers effecting the monitor. I switched off the speakers and checked the problem remained same. I taken it to the service center and its working fine there....and i do not know what to do?????

Please help me in speeding up my system and solve my monitors problem. please reply me as soon as possible. Thank you...
