6) Anything else you would like to say? (eg: local purchase, ASS,matte/glossy finish)
I am a student studying automotive design engg. and have to do a gracious amount of CAD and other graphically intensive tasks (mentioned above).
Good build quality would be a plus, because I most probably have to use the same lappy for the next five years.
Lastly I'm pretty damn confused whether I should wait for haswell (I can wait at max till october end), or go with Ivy bridge based configs only.
thx in advance.

Glossy screen has better colour reproduction.........(Compared Y500 & Samsung S02IN side by side)

Considering your budget, get Samsung NP550P5C S05IN, after waiting till oct end.........

oh , nice to know but screen reflectivity will be compromised right? btw any reason for the price drop?


you cannot get anything for graphics design and 1920x1080 resolution for that less amount.
the screen of all consumer laptops suk big time and its better to get any laptop and plug in 1920x1080 IPS display to that.
What do you really mean by graphic design?

as anupam_pb said, glossy screens have better color reproduction in general, and refletiveness is not an issue to me.
the sammy sells for about 60k right now. are u sure it'll fall into my budget by october (I'm an engg student and have barely managed to coax my dad into spending 55k, and hence I cant spend a penny over that)
since I'm an engg student..... I hope u understand that buying a second screen is out of the question.
as for the graphic design thing, sorry for the sh&*ty thread title. I'll be using AutoCAD, Solidworks, RASaero and a few more softwares pretty much daily, and I'll also need the adobe creative suite pretty often.
