    I am an software engineering student and have with my own website. I had a desktop PC at home which I did most of my programming works. Now that I have shifted to Delhi for higher studies I found I really need a laptop for a lot of my computer works. I want one which has the minimum features in these order

    1) 512 MB DDR
    2) 1.5 GHz CPU
    3) DVD-RW Drive
    4) 1024 X 768 Screen Resolution (in optimal mode, not forced)
    5) Wireless Connectivity
    5) Bluetooth (Preferred)
    6) 60 GB HDD
    7) All the nit bits required for a broadband connection and networking
    8) Good graphics and sound cards.

    Could you suggest a laptop with the above specifications? I have a most stretchable budget of Rs. 65000/- for the laptop. I would prefer if the laptop could be of some reputed brand like Dell, IBM, HP, Compaq or Sony.

    go for atleast 2.6 ghz. u wld regret it later. with many laptops coming with 3.2ghz u'll feel slowed down. dont know abt the exact model but hp laptops are good. as u dont bother abt travelling dont go on weight. light compu generally have config only for working purposes.

    I am not going for too tiny laptops either as the keyboards and screen becomes uncomfortable. What do you think about Sony Vaio VGN B77?

    I have narrowed down on three notebooks.

    1) Sony VAIO VGN B77
    2) Samsung X20 EXT
    3) Compaq Presario B2816

    Which one of these would be the best choice?

    Any additional laptops will be welcome. :)

    I couldn't put HP nc6220 as at 90000+, it is quite beyond my budget. I would be able to stretch at most to 75000 if DVD RW and mouse comes as standard, otherwise 65000 (as I'll have to buy external DVD Writer and Mouse)

    Sony VAIO VGN B77 is out of stock. :( The option available now is VAIO FJ57GP at Rs. 70000/- What is your opinion on this compared to Compaq Presario B2816? Which do you think would be a better value for money?

    Why not consider a Dell? If you want it within 60k budget Look at the Inspiron 6000 you can customize it according to your needs along with the DVD writer. If you extend your budget a little more to around 70k, you can even get the new Inspiron 9400 with Intel Core Duo.

    Check Dell India website.

    Dude,

    1. i am using IBM, T-53 since 2001. Though people may call this laptop a tin box but it was worth than. Now I got a lenovo T-43. This is cool guys. It has blutooth, wifi, biometrics (finger print recognition this is very handy), the note book is very light and very agronomically designed,. Kindly check these things before you buy one note book,

    Service centres, IBM's serveces is good boss my own experience
    check for the weight of the note book including the complete cover and power cord
    Features.........ha...ha dont go for those features which you would not use ever,
    check the agronomic design should be very user friendly,
    Check screen resolution
    Should be sturdy like a Nokia phone
    Go for powder coted covers (Lenovo comes in this mode now a days),
    Regarding DVD writer, do you really need it, boss now a days you get all those Hard drives with huge capacity, I store in them, do the same, I carry loads on them, These are less cumbersome you need not have to go back home to get one and no need to store them.
    check the features like back lighton key pads-lenovo/IBM think have that one on them and finally not the least
    Check for the asthetic sense/flaunt value and also the weight of wads that you gonna loose.
    so enjoy and buy yourself a new machine-dont forget to check our dear digit mag, they give excellent reviews boss, though at times it is exggerated. Ha....Ha....Ha... never mind. :lol: :twisted: :eek:

    milind no one will understand what macs are all about in this forum.

    Anyways, Dell Inspiron 6000 or 630m will be good enough for your needs.

    Buddy,

    Go for T43, this model is great. I got it two weeks + back. This is light, it has got comfortable key pads and good resting place for your palm. The resolution is good and moreso it has got decent to good features including finger print recognition (so I dont have any hassel for passwords) and also loaded with blue tooth, only thing it doesnt have firewire port. :evil: :evil:
    Priced decently at 70k, its a good stuff. By the way, Lenovo has shifted its assembling plant to Pondicherry, now no product from Hongkong. :twisted: :twisted:
