HP DV4 3016TX - 42k This has an i5 and 4GB ram.
Flipkart.com: HP Pavilion DV6 Series Dv4 - 3016tx: Computer
ASUS K53SC-SX054D - 34k i5 and 520M.
Flipkart.com: Asus K Series K53SC-SX054D: Computer

HP has a battery life of 5hrs while general browsing, 2.5hrs while gaming.
ASUS should be around the same.
Gaming wise HP is 50% better than the ASUS.
Both have 1 year onsite warranty. ASUS also gives international warranty.

ASS of HP is decent, ASUS' is good.
Build quality is good for both.


The Dell here sucks. You won't be able to game without a graphic card.

One thing that i want to tell more ...there is a reason i chose only core i3 processor because they may not be all powerful but upto a nyc lvl and consume less battery :wink:....

On similar load levels, they have very similar power consumption. ie If both CPUs are only running a web browser, their power consumption would be similar.
Only time that the i5 will consume more power will be when the i5 is doing more work that the i3 (on load). But then it would do the work faster than the i3 anyway.

if u can then just extend ur budget a lil bit and go for dell xps or look something out in sony.
HP DV4 is not good at all according to me.

You have had some bad experience with dv4? i'd like to know :)
I have a dv4 3016tx and i absolutely love it. i had certain expectations when getting it and it has performed admirably well (esp for its price) :)

You are not taking into account the recent decision made by HP to sell off their PC business. HP probably isn't a good decision, until we know what's gonna happen to their PC business.

Hi, I would suggest u go for 14R. 15R is basically 15.6" its big screen so wont help u much as a portable PC. second why blue ray ? we wont be using this in near future. even HD is not common in India.
And go for i5 or i7, RAM, HDD is good and add a graphic card. After sales service of DELL is best in country.

1) Once we buy the laptop, its not going to change as its in our hands.
2) The new owner or HP will have to cover all warranties. The new owner might even give better services.
