What is your suggestions...as I am not going to do any hardcore gaming or video editing or Photoshop kind of work...I have a limited budget of under Rs 25K...and in that too the minimum possible..with decent working...as i am a normal user with internet surfing...video streaming...skype..facebook...so should I go for it...or any better suggestions...?....thanks...
