    I was expecting it to be around Rs. 25000! So, kinda low priced to my expectation. But, I won't wish to upgrade now as, most of the programs/ games won't work on it and, the price shoudl fall considerably by the time I get most compatibility!

    Here, there, everywhere
    Beta means a testing version, under development, where new features are being added and not all the features are completely coded.

    RC means Release Candidate. It means that the product is feature complete, but needs to be tested for bugs and garbage code. Optimizations take place based on feedback.

    Home versions is just one of the versions of the RTM product i.e Final Version.

    Do not even consider using the beta or RC versions as they are going to be heavily bugged.
