My budget is 50K, can be extended to 55K MAX.

Screen size - 15"+
Would be using it to play FPS games like COD, Crysis etc.

Brands I prefer - Dell, HP. Can go for others brands too if the deal is good.

What are my best deals I can get?

Thanks

HP dv6 6140tx @ 48k is what i'll recommend for gaming

Also look at the new xps series from dell starting at 50k

But 6140tx would be my choice though. :)

I looked at the XPS series, but I don't know what combination of Processor, RAM and GPU would be the best?

XPS series graphic chip is a bit weak as compared to the one used in HP dv6 models.
if ur r bent on playing latest game with some eye candy then i recommend i7 or i5 CPU with 4 to 6 GB RAM and for the GPU part look for GTX 555M series or HD 6770m series GPU in laptops all coming in ur budget i.e 55k .
AS all members will tell u here go for HP-dv6 6121tx laptop IMO.so survery markets and research well before buying a laptop becoz at the end it damm well pays off.

does HP gives the option to upgrade the display to HD or is there any model with full HD screen and good GPU?

Not possible to upgrade in India.
HP has one model with full HD display but comes with a inferior graphics card.
Model number is most probably dv6-6120tx around 50-51K

The only diff. between 6140 and 6121 is the memory of the GPU and the HDD, or am I missing something? Is the extra 1GB of GPU memory of any use?

No, it is of no use. The only advantage is the hard disk. 6121 has 640GB hard disk where as 6140 has 500GB.

OK. Doesn't it have any touch buttons or some extra buttons for volume etc?
Is there any kind of Student Discount or any offer which I can avail? Website doesn't state any.

No extra touch button and any extra panel is present.
It was present in older DV6 models.
Get someone who is working in HP. You will get some 10-15% discount.

There is some news about HP turning away from PCs and moving towards the large enterprise and govt. sectors. How would it affect the consumers like us and should this mean considering Dell XPS now?

No it won't effect you. Warranty and support wil continue.

What you think of this one guys?
it has FHD (i think so :-D) and the graphics card is not that lame !!
can run the games in medium to high settings.....what you think about this one??

Sony VAIO C Series VPCCB15FG
Good for NON gaming.

dude did u check notebookreviews? :blink: here is the link
AMD-Radeon-HD-6630M

except metro and nfs shift its handling almost all the games in high and medium settings well and it has FHD !! similar config with dell will go beyond 60K and dont think anyone offering FHD with this much better gfx card !! :grin:

6630 is inferior to 540m which means its just okayish for gaming. but not really something i'd recommend.
And that FHD is going to create an issue. FHD has nearly twice the number of pixels as a HD ready screen and coupled with a weaker graphics card, its going to impact your gaming in a significant way (i prefer to run games at native resolutions, as thats when they look best)

IMO if you're into gaming, then dont buy a lap with FHD unless the GPU can kick some serious ass :wink:
