    Dell has a 2.2GHz proccy as opposed to 2.1 by lenovo. Dell has Windows 7 as opposed to lenovo's vista. Rest is pretty much the same. Buy either, doesn't make much more than a 1000 rupee difference.

    The Lenovo that I have used was sturdy, but looked like a slate and was completely rectangular. I dunno about today's design , but that was what I had used, a rectangular laptop. Also, the closing mechanism is a bit weird with a suitcase like lock the folded notebook in place. Dell looks sleeker, is as sturdy and has no latch locking mechanism in place. You can't trust the DVD writer in either as both failed after a year or so for my friends. I would go for the Dell, but Lenovo is by no means a bad performer.

    I have seen my cousin's Dell Inspiron 15 and this one too is a bit bulky but very strong. The difference comes when you try the keypad and trackpad. Dell's keyboard and trackpad are pretty good and Lenovo thinkpad's is second to none. If this G series has the same keyboard, go for it.

    I chose Acer over others as I had Acer Aspire 5500 for 3 yrs plus config was good ..second KB is very stylish and laptop looks kewl enough

    Lenevo was 32.5 k widout any OS and drivers

    Dell was bulky and my bro had already it..cost was 36k

    So happy wid Acer :)
