hi, i am looking for a laptop too ,within the same range of 55k-60k,after 2 weeks of research this is what i have learned.

My basic spec was
fast processor (AMD/Intel does't matter)
fast RAM (DDR2 533mhz is good)
Harddisk 40gb+
good graphics card
DVD read is must

will compromise with battery back-up
weight no bar, size no bar
don't need wi-fi/bluetooth , just plain-simple 10/100 LAN.


for a budget range of 55k-60k the following companies are strictly out of bounds (if u r buying in India)

Sony - tooo expensive
Toshiba - '' ''
Dell - expensive if bought in india
Samsung - there is an economy model within this range but it is not good enough, the good models are too expensive

Now for the laptops which are avilable in this range

Zenith - not powerful enough fr gaming
ACI - not powerful enough,low quality,bad service
Gigabyte - there is a good model (N411) but i do't think you would want to blow ur 60k on a company which is an unknown name in laptop market

that leaves two companies

1. HP-Compaq : they have a really wide range on laptop models in this range, but fr gaming two catogeries are suitable

Compaq Presario V2000 series - good all-round multimedia capabilities with , though the fully loaded variants may exceed 60k

HP nx120 series - Corporate laptops but with enough punch for gaming
HP nx130 series : ( with Raedon x700 agp with dedicated 64MB VRAM) the dealer i contacted said that they will be avilable in india in November.

2. Acer :

Acer is really good value for money especially if ur a student.
there are several acer models which will fit in as gaming laptops and fortumnately they are not too expensive either

Please remember that almost all Acer laptops in this range come with 256mb ram only , it cost extra Rs 3000 to make it 512Mb which is a minimum now-a-days for gaming.

1. Acer Aspire 5002 : AMD Turion 64 (64bit cpu ) ,RAM : 333mhz fsb
people told me that the performance is great but the battery backup very poor (around 1.5 hours when playing movies)

2. Acer TravelMate 4601 : (this is the one i am going to buy, so maybe i am a bit prejudiced)
Intel Pentium M 730 (1.6Ghz,533Mhz fsb),DDR2 RAM (533Mhz)

and Dig this!!!
Code:
ATI MOBILITY™ RADEON® X700 with 64 MB of DDR VRAM, supporting ATI POWERPLAY™ 5.0, Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0, PCI Express™ and DualView™
And this!!!!
Code:
60 GB ATA/100 hard disk drive
Acer MediaBay for hot-swappable optical drive modules

8X DVD-Super Multi double layer 
   Read: 24X CD-RW, 24X CD-R, 24X CD-ROM, 8X DVD+R, 8X DVD-R,8X DVD-ROM, 4X DVD+RW, 4X DVD-RW, 3X DVD-RAM, 2.4X DVD+R (double layer) 
   Write: 24X CD-R, 8X DVD+R, 8X DVD-R, 4X DVD+RW, 4X DVD-RW, 4X CD-RW, 3X DVD-RAM, 2.4X DVD+R (double layer) 

4-in-1 card reader supporting Secure Digital (SD), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick® (MS), and Memory Stick PRO™ (MS-Pro)

I accept it is weighs a lot (3 Kg) but it's heavy on features too.

the price quoted in a recent ad in "The Hindu" gave its prive at Rs 57,500
enquires from the dealer yielded a price of Rs 63,000 (including taxes).

hi , soory for the delay. (preparing fr exams)
see if ur budget is around 50,000 you obviously can't go for the Acer Travelmate 4610 which will cost u around Rs 60,000.
so choose b/w Acer Aspire 5002 (read details above)
and new Acer TravelMate 4152
spec:
Intel Pentium M 1.73Ghz(533 mhz fsb)
256 Mb DDR2 (533mhz fsb)
15' lcd
60 GB HDD
Bluetooth, cardreader etc
AGP is Inter IGP 900 so NFS UG 2 will run on medium settings
price including Sales tax(4.2% of list) + installation(Rs1000)+carrybag,handeling and fright (Rs 2500) - (student discount (if ur student ) Rs 2000) = Rs 49,500
