Legend Never Ends
Since you want to run CPU intensive programs you may wait a little.Sandy Bridge is a lot better and low power consuming as well.
But if you can't L512 should do fine.

The sandy-bridge processors will be much more powerful as well as low battery consuming.
So by all means go for a sandy-bridge Thinkpad.

I guess Lenovo has already launched some sandy-bridge models of Thinkpad in India. They are not being shown in their website, but they must be available in their showrooms. Better visit their showroom in your city.

I am the night...I am...
The i3 version of lennovo z570 comes with core i3 2310 with same nvidia gt 525 , 640gb hdd @ 38k inclusive taxes. Is a good deal if under a tight budget.

Else get the i5 2410 version of z570. Going for sandybridge is a wise decision.
