Movies, MS Office, Music, A few games (like FIFA , Football Manager etc..), Skype, AutoCad, Photoshop etc..

5) Any typical configuration in your mind you're eying for ?
Nothing in my mind. Want the best possible spec for such a modest price range.


4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
No preference. Brand should have decent after sale service.

6) Anything else you would like to say?

  • Resolution - best possible
  • Battery back up ( normal (3-4hrs) / extended (5-7hrs)) : 5-6 hours should be good enough
  • Purchase place ( Online (eg - flipkart, infibeam) / Local / Abroad (do mention the country) ) - Flipkart mostly
  • Would probably need a front cam for skype

This may sound stupid, but can I have the same laptop with Windows 7 instead of Windows 8 as mentioned in the specs? Else, I would like to go with laptops with Win7 installed. Not too keen on using Win8.

Also, what are your views on this - Samsung NP350V5C-S01IN Laptop (2nd Gen Ci3/ 4GB/ 750GB/ Win7 HB/ 1GB Graph) Rs.32490 Price in India - Buy Samsung NP350V5C-S01IN Laptop (2nd Gen Ci3/ 4GB/ 750GB/ Win7 HB/ 1GB Graph) Titan Silver Online - Samsung: Flipkart.com
It's good if you want Windows 7. If you want DOS version,then the best is Dell Inspiron 15 3521 Laptop.
