    This is a laptop, I guess U R confused the 845GV chipset is for Desktop it cann't be incorporated in a Laptop

    Belive me, get a dell, will be a lot better, U know what I think, the best config for a laptop which will be more then enough for anything which U wanna fo on laptop, I mean, whats the use of playing games on a laptop, the battry will drain a lot, also if u don't play games on a laptop then a DX 9based gfx card is also not required, infact a low power consuiming part is better

    My recomended notebook configuration

    Pentium M 1.7 GH, Dothon, 2 MB L2 Cache
    Intel 855PM chipset
    Centrino Plateform
    A Simple FX5200 gfx card or a mobility Radeon 9200 non-pro, this is enough for a laptop
    512 MB RAM, DDR333
    40 GB HDD, 5400 RPM, best is Seagate momentous, 2.5 Inch, SATA format
    15" LCD Screen, high contrast ratio

    rest as usual, with integrated Bluetooth, & IrDA

    If it's not a moblie AMD64, and were strictly talking about Intel CPU's for laptops, then PENTIUM M is the BEST Choice. Lower power consumption, with more processing capabilties compared to it's over powered cousin P4 with less capabilties.

    If Intel was smart, They'd take Pentium M to the next level and leave P4 in the dust.

    Hey, like the guys are saying Dell is quite a workhorse of a laptop especiallt the latest hig end one for sale. can't remember the exact but its the series 8200 or something. Its quite robust and will not let you down.

    If you want looks, latest technology etc etc i say the sony viao although it is not officially launched in india a good vendor is Gizmo world in delhi and mumbai (i think)

    Games -- leave them to the desktop !!! i don't think a laptop config can match up to the high end games.....................it does nnot mean that there arent any but then they are mighty expensive.

    Ok u got the iball grand master................i think this company is based in bangalore or something. Everything of theirs is made in china. I know the company where they are sourcing their cabinets and some other stuff from.

    Although their prices seem good but compared to other chinese products these iball ones are placed much much higher as they are being re-packaged and branded thus.

    I did get to see their products and must say am impressed with their build quality although about their working quality and service support we will get to know after some time i guess.

    Sony vaio has most of its parts from japan and so does dell..............yes certain plastic parts do eventually come from china (like everything else in the world) but then their quality control standards are SKY HIGH.

    Laptops

    All you guys all Laptops HP,DELL,ACER...etc..,
    are made by quanta,wistron and compal.U can get them as whitebooks or in branded with names I mentioned above.These firms
    quanta,wistron and compal are known as ODMs.

    So guys difference might be in batteries,design and some goodies they offer.

    Acer notebooks are made by compal.Dell latitude 800 is made by Compal.
    HP by wistron.The list goes on like that.

    Yup you are right these might just be assembling units. So at the end of the day we cannot say that since so and so company is assembling for all these varied brands that all qualities are the same.

    Since i am from a manufacturing/engineering industry i know that that is all BS since a same plant can make a variety of qualities for varying clientle. [/quote]

    Intresting that Rohanbee. May we know what manufacturing industry you are related to and some inner working stuff...obviously not amounting to espionage but just some shade principally.
    Also i think the quality too depends on the Price one expects from clients regarding the Product. After all even Apple Inc doesnt make all their laptops Scratch proof...Price ruleez after all.!!

    Sure it is not laptop. 845 board ? I will never go for anything other than Dell/IBM/HP. If you are tight on budget go for zenith, acer or Toshiba :lol:
