Can actually say multi-purpose.... A bit work (no heavy graphics though), gaming, but again not that big ones, but yes may go to Cricket 07, FIFA 08 etc.

But, the budget is 35k only.... :(

Check out Acer 4520, it is real VFM around 30k only.

Also, Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook with Core 2 Duo for 36k -You can call Dell and bargain.

If I had a budget of ~35k, I would buy Dell Inspiron 1420 Notebook (with nVidia 8400GS graphics) - cannot beat the value at 36k. Go for it, and if you have any friends working at Dell, they can get you a good discount...

1.dell inspiron 1420 with 8400GS would go around 40k
2. Acer 4520 though value for money comes without a operating system (the 30k version) and drivers for winxp are missing

Compaq - Presario V6608AU is a good choice below 35k.

Between Dell 1420 and Dell 1525, go for Dell 1525....if you dont have money problem.

For latest price visit www.dell.co.in

You can do little barging also with their sales person on phone.

Firstly, both the Dell's, 1420 n 1525 r crossing 40k with Tax.

And, in 1525, only Intel® Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator X3100, is being shown as graphics card option. No nVidia 8400GS.

^^ thats the problem with 1525

if ur budget is only 35K better go with compaq 6608au
Note:- compaq does not provide official drivers for winxp for 6608au

Dell Inspiron 1420 (with 8400GS) costs 36k excluding taxes. If you bargain with the rep on the phone, most probably they will adjust the tax amount within 36k itself. I know many people who have got this price.

And, if you know anybody working at Dell, they can purchase it thru EPP for you, and you can expect further discount.

WinXP drivers are available, I can give you the links for that, and I confirm everything works fine under XP because one of my friends owns this laptop and is running XP.

Thnx 4 the suggestion guys, talking abt Compaq 6608.

It has AMD Turion 64x2 TL-58 processor and nVidia GeForce Go 7150M GS card.

Firstly, how is AMD Turion 64x2 TL-58 in comparison to Core2Duo? And what about the performance of nVidia GeForce Go 7150M GS?

The drivers are available (though not bundled) on various websites do not work all the time
