    u wont get good hp pavallion sub 40K.
    Acer Aspire 5738, is better, with good specs. Also u get dell studio from 42K starting.
    Dell inspiron will have better config than any hp pavallion in 40K.

    True. Acer 5738/G specs are really superb for the price at 40k price tag.

    +1

    Acer would be best choice for 40k budget. You never feel bad for purchasing.

    ^^ Acer 5738 is doing slower performance which i used u know . i pick DELL / Sony for their real performance .

    toshiba is just better , acer specs are good but not too good

    From OP's post, we came to know that he doesn't play any big titles and any proccy crunching tools. So a Acer 47xx/57xx would suffice and it sure fulfill his needs. May be a Dell Studio 15 would be a better choice but its upto OP.

    Spare a thought for after-sales service. :-|
    In my opinion HP has the best after sales service.

    Also why not try the compaq range from HP. You would get a good config in 40k.
    My friend bought a compaq laptop 8 months back.
    It is running without any problems whatsoever. And performance is good too.

    you sure, people say its quiet a trouble if your hardware gives problem>> i.e complete hardware replacement. Parts replacement is good in HP, also you have HP service centers in different places unlike Dell. But frankly HP/compaq keep good on good build and total package than good after sales

    compaq line up completes with Dell Inspiron.

    with new models
    dv4 == Dell Studio
    dv6 == XPS Studio, infact dv6 package is much better than XPS studio. check dv6-1152 and dv6-1154 models

    yeah thats how it was before also...
    but when studio 15 launched no hp model could match it specs in the price range...
    nearly all people jumped for it in my college who didn't have a lappy at that time...
    seems like the position is changed..
    But 1 thing i hate about HP the most is their lineup changes with location WITHIN India...
    man thats pathetic... who is running the company... ???

    HP Pavilion any day buddy considering that inspiron brand has been demoted to the entry-level by dell. The build quality is also much better with HP and their support and service network is much wider.
