Looking for the best combination of performance and backup time.

Will be running oracle database and other development applications.

Should be able to run windows and linux.

Thanks...but air may not be that much powerful, performance wise.

I see Macbook Pro as a good option but which one ?

What are other options ?

Pure performance : Asus G75VW
MacBook Pro : Simply get the best one which comes in your budget ( it has the amazing retina display :D )
Ultrabook: Samsung Series 9

Its up to you now.

Nothing better than Vaio SVS15116GNB in half the money you're ready to invest.

i7-3612QM + 1080p IPS + 640M LE (OC'able to 650M, if at you need) @ 2kg.

If you can source it from US/Canada, IIRC its available for a mere ~55k there.

^^Well yea, the Asus one might be a little heavy at 4.5kg, due to the 17.3 inch fullhd display, i7-3610qm, 16gb ram, gtx670m 2gb, 750gb hdd, 256 gb ssd.
I guess you don't realise the performance difference one gets with the gtx670m + 256gb ssd when compared to gtx 640m and hdds

Little heavy ? 2 kg and 4.5 kg in laptops is like lifting a bike vs car. Plus I do realise what's the difference one gets b/w the above posted configs. Can you care to explain why the hell he needs gtx 670m ? His work is dev-centric which is majorly CPU + intensive I/O, which just needs fast HDD & RAM. SSD can be added any day. There is no point spending that much money if his requirement is fulfilled by a laptop of half the budget allocated.

PS: 17" laptop is practically a PITA.

MacBook Air makes the best choice, but he needs more performance so MacBook Pro makes sense.
