How many days can you wait ?

I'm asking this because newer sandy-bridge based laptops will soon start flooding the market and the current lineup would get outdated.

I guess I can wait for some 15 days or so ! If you are really suggesting me to wait more than that and If I can get a good deal then I can wait for more time .

Newer sandy-bridge processors are 40-50% faster than the earlier Nehalm processors & they are even more power efficient.

The only choice available for a sandy-bridge laptop is Dell XPS15 which slightly exceeds your budget (by 5-10k). If you are a student, you can get a 5% discount.

See this: The Dell Online Store: Build Your System

The default GT-525M GPU is bad for gaming. The GT-540M is mid-level but can handle most games in low-mid settings. Add carry-case to it & the total price goes to about 55k.

Still the GT-540M is not a great GPU for gaming. That is why I'm asking you to wait & let other brands release their offerings.

Well I am prepaid to wait then . What are my options in HP ?

ATI Readon 1gb cards are coming with it . I think they are good enough .

Also , When are the Sandy-Bridge processors coming in India ? ( In every laptop )

I'm guessing that it would take probably April end to mid May for other brands to launch their laptops.

I think you have no idea of graphics cards. Don't judge GPUs on the basis of 1GB, 2GB, etc. The power of GPUs depend on the specific model. For example: 512MB HD5650 will run almost all games in med-high settings while 1GB HD 550V will fail to run any game in high settings.

Well , I have to buy the laptop at the end of this month as I have urgent work in the begining of may.

So , Suggestions guys ?
 
OP

Bump . :bump:

Well , I am in the final stages . I am more or less settled on the following configuration .

Dell XPS 15
Second Generation i3
500Gb
4Gb Ram
2Gb Nvidia GT 540M.

for 51K .

Is this what I should order or anybody has a better suggetion ?

Believe Me or Not!!!
Increase you budget to include Core i5 2xxx, if you can. Its worth that ~3k increment and makes your config somewhat future-proof than your current choice :)
Otherwise Core i3 2xxx will be enough for your mentioned tasks - gaming, movies and surfing.

BTW, the HP laptop with 6750M looks great. 6750M is better than GT 540M. Call HP ReSeller to enquire its price.

Then getter stick with that GT540M. But note one thing, GT540M is not a hardcore piece of GPU for gamer. But still it can play games at decent settings.

I looked around for those laptops they are having all sorts of heating issues . I know that has a better GFX but its having problems .

How much of a difference does have an i5 have over i3.

Yea i guess this is best GFX i can get at this price . :|
