    Yeah, at that price, you will probably get pentium 4 laptops, which I believe are no good. :(

    AFAIK, even 40k will not get you a C2D with good graphics. Here are a few I've checked recently:

    Acer Aspire 5536 - AMD, HD3200, 2GB, 320GB - 28k
    Acer Aspire 5536G - AMD, HD4570, 3GB, 320GB - 31k
    Acer Aspire 5738G - C2D, NVidia 105M, 4GB, 320GB - 42.5k
    Dell Studio 15 - C2D, 3-4GB, HD4570, 320-500GB - 42-47k

    +1 to Dell studio 15. You get ATI HD 4570M gfx. Anyway, I don't know how much a laptop can handle in terms of CPU load... Not sure about heavy work.

    if you are really into 3D desgin etc, you better get a good rig for 40k and you will feel much more flexible.

    clmlbx Sure u need a laptop only? As for a budget of 40k u can buy a far more powerful rig which will be able to handle all your work like a charm.

    Go to Dell's website and check out Inspiron series Laptops.

    @clmlbx, even for 40k, max you can get is entry level Graphics and a low end core2duo and that will struggle to do 3D design work.

    anyways, check these:

    Dell Inspiron
    HP Pavilion DV6-1204AU (Athlon X2 QL=65, 3GB DDR2, 320GB HDD, vista home premium, 15.6" display, ATI mobility radeon HD3200, 1yr warranty): 40k-43k

    you can check HP Pavilion DV6-1211AX (Turion X2 RM-75 2.2GHz, 4GB ddr2, 320GB HDD, vista home premium, 15.6" display, HD4650 graphics,1yr warrany) : 46k-48k

    ^Test ur apps on his laptop and check for BSOD and stability. Excellent opportunity for you to gauge performance levels.

    If you want to do 3D work increase your budget and get a MacBook or Macbook Pro.

    That should work out excellent, But be ready to shell out a bomb for it.
