Y510p is better in all respects.

1.Much better GPU.
2.FHD screen.
3.Superb build quality.
4.Customizable(Upgradable) laptop.

The only downside is that the Y510p below 60k has only a core i5 as opposed to core i7 in Z510. core i7 in Y510p costs a lot more(70k).

Performance will be lower than Z510.
core i5M>core i7U by a small margin.

That laptop is not available in India I think.

All Z510's have backlighting as confirmed by [MENTION=138767]tanmaymohan[/MENTION]

:cool::doublethumb::clap2::bananana: nothing left now then Z-510 winner..thanks seamon..

better to get it offline after checking personally...

HP Envy 15-j110tx also promising. Any idea? Seems overpriced but i am ready to pay more bucks for HP. It has 8GB and M processor with 740 Nvidia. Awesome sleek & tiny look.

:facepalm:
Z510 has better processor.
Y510p has better screen+build quality+Upgradability+Better GPU.
HP has weaker CPU(than Z510)+weaker GPU(than Y510p)+is overpriced.

Let's buy HP.
:facepalm:

Same CPU -i5-4200M and GPU-2GB GT740M Nvidia graphic in HP. I checked.HP brand value and premium look impressed a lot.

Let's try again.


:facepalm:
Z510 has better processor.(core i7 4702MQ)
Y510p has better screen+build quality+Upgradability+Better GPU(Nvidia GT 755m GDDR5)
HP has weaker CPU(core i5M)(than Z510)+weaker GPU(Nvidia GT 740M DDR3)(than Y510p)+is overpriced.

Let's buy HP.

Yeah confirmed i5 version has backlit KB
Checkout review on my site for images(in siggy)

If more gaming then y510P is good(My friend has the US version) :)

The final query before i am purchasing it today.

Is GPU same in 6 GB RAM (59-405838) & 4GB RAM (59-387061) model?

Dolby system are available in both varient i.e.6 GB RAM (59-405838) & 4GB RAM (59-387061) model?

U processors have half the performance of M processors.

3rd gen M processor>>>4th gen U processor.
3rd gen M/U processor is 10% weaker than 4th gen M/U processor respectively.

Don't even consider 3rd gen U processors. They were trash.
But M processor draws more power leads into big fan & more batter backup than U processor. See some notes below. Well, again confused bet M & U?!!

P1010501A lot of people have been asking the very sensible question – Why Ultrabook when you can get a 1.5KG notebook that delivers the same battery life and runs at a higher clock rate?
Update: A follow-up test, focussing on CPU power only, has now been published.
In nearly all comparison cases, the ‘lower clocked’ Ultrabook is based on an Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) 1.3-1.8Ghz Core i3, i5 or i7 CPU and is being compared to a laptop running a standard mobile equivalent of 2.2-2.5Ghz. With Intel Turbo Boost some of the clock rates can go higher but it’s not important for the comparison.

What’s the difference?

The simple answer is that the laptops using the Mobile CPU are less efficient and takes more energy to get the same thing done as on an Ultrabook. Lower efficiency means higher temperatures, shorter battery life and as a result, the need for a bigger battery pack and a bigger fan, which can get noisy.

In order to give you some real-world figures I went out and bought a Samsung NP350 with a 2.2Ghz Core i3 Mobile CPUfor about €430 (pre-tax.) The NP350 is a VERY interesting laptop for a number of reasons that I will go into in another article (I’ve chosen the the NP350 to be my companion at CES this year) but to summarise, we’re looking at a Core i3 CPU that runs from 800Mhz – 2200Mhz (SpeedStep. No Turbo Boost,) 4GB RAM, a 600GB hard disk drive, 12.5” screen at 1366×768 and a weight of 1.4KG. In terms of specs and performance it matches theAcer Aspire S3 very closely indeed, for nearly half the price.
In fact, if you’re looking at the Acer Aspire S3, do take a close look at the NP350. It’s NOT as efficient but because it uses lighter plastics and doesn’t focus on an ultra-thin style, Samsung have managed to put a 47Wh battery inside a 1.4KG device. That’s 27% bigger than the battery on the Acer Aspire S3. Does this mean the NP350 matches Ultrabooks in every aspect? Almost.
The NP350 swaps style for battery size but there’s an important caveat; the NP350 may have shorter battery life in some scenarios because the ‘mobile’ CPU can drain battery at a shockingly high rate when under load. In extreme cases, 40% more than the Acer Aspire S3. In average use cases, it may not be such an issue but let’s take a look to see how the Samsung NP350 with the Core i3 Mobile CPU (Core i3 2330M 800-2200Mhz) compares to the Acer Aspire S3 with the Core i5 Ultra-Low Voltage (Core i5 2467M 800-2300Mhz)

If you are so concerned about battery then get a spare battery.

Seriously trust me you will never be using laptop on battery except when either on move or there is a power cut & in my experience any laptop that has even battery backup of 2 hrs is good enough.
Also I observed that battery life tends to increase a bit on lighter OS'es like certain versions of Linux, so may give it a shot as well
 
I would say those performance comparisons you are looking at are just useless. You won't notice any difference in real world unless it is a desktop. For battery, if you are a human then I don't think you should be looking at it.

At last get what looks good or what others suggest, look at the warranty and certain offers too; they may be helpful.
