First of all apologize for the delay as i was more focused on building my own gaming rig.

Thanks to all the guys here for their opinions .Since I stay in Dubai I had been to local market to check what's available , as buying from flipkart or mdcomputers wont be applicable to me.
I have seen a couple of models from Dell and Lenovo. Lenovo speccy are good specially G40 ( exact model numb unknown ) with FHD display looks good.

And the final conclusion is that my cousin will be coming here in march , hence will take her around and let her decide about the size and looks of laptop. I think i can deal with the specs as per the requirement.

Thank you guyz.

Now that is good for you.
Lenovo is sometimes better or on par with any other good built quality brand. (Not intending to start another flame war)

Lenovo has really come back for the past couple of years...before which its business and performance was heading south.
In fact the new series with FHD screens at an affordable price compared to other brands,has marked itself at position no. 2 after Apple as according to http://www.laptop.mag

But choice for one owns requisite/requirement is the most important aspect,as I agree with [MENTION=279573]matrixx[/MENTION] regarding it.

Doesn't mean that all forum threads and posts comprises within colours of three series in single brand! I too personally like Lenovo.

I want to recommend other laptops too, but the other OEMs don't make them VFM/good enough for anything below 80k budget. It would make me look like an ass to recommend something which I won't purchase myself with the same budget and requirements.

What I suggest here is what I would end up buying. There was aa time when Dell was a absolutely no brainer for me to suggest and sony is no more to be seen acer do provide good laptops but they are sometimes lacking in terms of hardware or pricing. Asus has taken the market with the high end ones and MSI is still meh in it's lineup.

no, i'm a student. If i had a job and that too in Lenovo's Marketing Dept, why would I be using a >7 year old Lenovo r61 instead of any newer model and go through the pain of disassembling it to fix the problems myself? :|

Just look at the configs other OEMs offer at respective price points. Heck nobody else gives FHD screen below 50k. 2-3 years back, I would've recommended Dell's inspiron series which came with 650m (?) even for 50-55k (?) while others were stuck on 620m/630m and I didn't knew about lenovo's y500 having 650m which you can sli with another 650m.

i don't recommend it blindly but with proper reason, see recent threads if you want to confirm

To [MENTION=279573]matrixx[/MENTION] , Sir I appreciate and Honour your feelings.We both having some common views between us,but still I pray to you Sir,that please dont let the arguments go beyond a point of misjudged sarcasm.
It is also a fact that our Friend [MENTION=145143]SaiyanGoku[/MENTION], though a student is already into his geekdom of knowledge about computers/IT world in particular.His portrayal of facts about a particular brand's laptop may seem to be biased,but his explanation and the presentation of relevant information sharing can't be misjudged or ignored.

Without taking sides,@TDF friends,I mean that as per @OP's views on this thread comments by all of us,he has his own way of thoughts to choose and buy laptop for his relative.
In fact I am happy and satisfied with my DELL Inspiron 14 5447 notebook,no regrets,no remorse,without undermining any other brand. This DELL notebook may be crap for many but not for me.
Otherwise in this world,people should have chosen only apples or roses neglecting(rather ignoring) other fruits or flowers respectively.It is our human nature of self justification along with the urge regarding what I choose and buy,resulting in getting applauded/support from some and simultaneously on the contrary getting rebuked/ jeered/criticised by others.
Ultimate care is mine regarding my owne(d) gadget/instrument/machine...so why care about others criticism?

Ultimate motto : Budget + Choice + Wish of an individual while purchasing.

no offense to any friends on board here.

But I couldn't resist self when seeing overpass the BASIC & PRIME needs and wishes of any user.

In brief, meeting TOP MOST criteria of user must be our first word while suggesting not the marketing position or overall superiority of machine. We deal with human wishes, needs & their pleasures while talk about their product requirement. thanks.

This is human nature to clash their views. Respect all and help anyone who ask for it. I suggest what is best for a person in my point of view and that thing never meant to be an compulsion to other person to buy.

This is synchronization of views or thoughts.I had been constantly telling about this in this platform since the beginning I had joined at @TDF.:clap2::)

I Hope & Wish that all @TDF Friends means my point of views and communication and understanding.

No offence should be taken by anyone and not to be meant personal also.
