6) Anything else you would like to say?
Can purchase locally in Kanpur or online whichever has the best deal :p
DVD drive is a must.

I am a MTech student, would be using it to read and prepare a lot of presentations and documents which means I would prefer a good keyboard :p (back-lit keyboard will be advantage). Should I buy a laptop now or wait till Diwali for offers and stuff ?
And btw I do play a few games such as NFS, GRiD (mostly racing) and i am still waiting to get my hands on Max Payne 3 due to lack of GFX card on my PC.
 
Wait till Diwali if u can as companies will soon refresh their laptop line up with 4th gen Intel processors & newer GPU(NVIDIA 7xxM & AMD 8xxxM)

How about the new Lenovo Essential G505s (59-380146)? It comes with new AMD Richland APU based A10-5750M (Quad Core, 2.5 GHz to 3.5 GHz Turbo, 4 MB L2), HD 8570M 2 GB DDR3 dedicated + HD 8650G IGP, 8 GB 1600 MHz RAm, 1 TB 5400 RPM HDD, BT 4.0, USB 4.0 and all the other standard features. A10-5750M is as powerful as the 3rd gen Core i5 Processors like i5 3210M. It is priced at 38K and I think really a good buy.

Problem with waiting is you are never sure of the prices :/ especially given this volatility in the INR

Ohhhh yeah dats a good choice :D 1GB is more than enough
Any other choices ? I think this is better than Inspiron 14R around 43K which has i3 and 2GB 730M



Guys hows this http://http://www.snapdeal.com/product/lenovo-essential-g500s-59388254-laptop/99565622?pos=0;123

Depends on your graphic needs... The Dell one has 730m, the G500s has 720m and the one I suggested has 740m...
I suggest you take the one with 740m as many graphic intensive games are around the corner!!! :wink:
The 730m and 740m are not that much different with only maybe 10-15% difference in performance... Stay clear of the 720m, it sucks big time...
Refer to notebookcheck for indepth analysis!!! :cool:

However note that the 740m in z500 is based on old architecture gk 208 i.e. 64.bits version and notebook check have reviewed on the 128 bits version.

Here is the quotation from it:

"The GK208 version however, seems to be performing worse. Still, the performance depends on the core clock and the GPU Boost 2.0. "


However according to the review by thinkdigit123 it look like that it will.be able to play most games on high settings at least.

Why the hell do we get all things at the last ? They come running to us when they want to develop software but forget us while releasing the frigging hardware WHY?
Anyway I doubt I wud be playing games in high settings .. its usually mid-level setting and anyway I am not going to play the big boys like COD and Crysis etc ... but I intend to do a lot of editing on vids however, would it suffice ?

It's the best bet you have right now... And, I too felt the same way when I gamed on my HP g6 2005 AX... I was like, am only gonna play F1, NFS and FIFA, why the hell do I need a good graphics card... But, trust me, once I started playing those games in Ultra or maxed out settings, I can't stand to play them in low graphics settings... Got spoilt, I suppose!!! :mrgreen:
