    I am planning to purchase a good perfomance Laptop of Dell. Here is my requirement.


    1) CPU : Intel Core 2 Duo, Laptop / Mobile Equivalent of E8400 (What will it be?)
    2) HDD : Min 250 - 300 GB
    3) GPU : Laptop / Mobile of HD 4850 (What will it be?)
    4) Display : 17 Inch
    5) RAM : DDR2 4GB (As good as G-Skill or Corsair)

    E8400 Wolfdale would probably be best resembled by a T9800 and Mobility Radeon HD4850 would be the mobile version of the HD4850. So Dell Alienware seems to be the only choice. However no information is given in Indian Dell website. Does anyone have any idea, how much will these laptops cost in Indian markets??

    Thanks in Advance

    C2D P8600
    4GB DDR2

    Remember, the 9600GT Mobile is actually a desktop 9500GT.

    Thus getting a HD4670 is a much better option, or for the matter HD4570, as both are equally good or better infact.

    wrong. HD4570, though faster has just 64 bit bus compared to 128-bit 9600m GT.
    So 9600M GT is better, and none of them come near to HD4670 or HD4650 for that matter.

    Remember about ati line up
    HD43xx<HD45xx<HD46xx, and the difference between HD45xx and HD46xx is just double.
    9600M GT is better than 9500GT

    also lil check in bechmark listing for notebook gfx http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html

    there is a HP model with ati mobile HD4650 and 1GB but with AMD mobile proccy. And if we say in that way, I do not understand why model with 9600M GT are costlier than better HD4650 model.

    But How about laptops n India?

    I think there are quite few models available for casual gaming
    like XPS 16, DV6 and Studio 1555

    XPS 16 is of course over-priced with ATI Mobility HD3670 - 68K
    HP Pavillion DV6 is coming with decent HD4650 - 60K with C2D T9550
    And Studio 1555 is coming with HD4570 -65K

    Also these laptops are only for casual gaming at Mid settings

    MSI is there, but where to find it?

    Is there any other lappy other then these? Especially with good gaming GPU?

    DV6 looks better with HD4650 compared to XPS 16. HD4650 is lot lot lot better than HD3670. And still you are paying 8k less.
