    i recommended her to upgrade two thing one is 9 cell battery n back lit key board which make it to the price range of approx 47-48k and to increase in hdd is up to her
    but some one told her that go for hp as Bangalore doesnt have good service centre for dell(dell has only one center in bangalore)hp is providing better service there and about dell studio it doesnt have good battery back up,battery will drain out in 1 n 1/2 hr n get heated a lot...and some one recommended inspiron 15 to her

    now main prob is that wat to say to her as i know she doesn't know about the laptop/computer but now as she is pursuing mba she need lappy for her project so she wana one which didn't give her tension of maintenance and wana good battery back up also

    so what should i suggest her as

    1.i dont know about the service condition in hp and dell in Bangalore
    2. battery back up of this latest laptop(studio 14 with ddr3 ram with 9 cell battery)
    3.any hanging or heating problem in this lappy
    4.i noticed that it consist of vista 64 bit so what problem she will have to face due to having 64bit
    5. plz suggest me the name of the data card which is best in bangalore as she will need and data card also having good and reliable speed and transfer rate along with connectivity
    6.if you think any other lappy in this range is most appropriate then plz mentioned here
    7.they are using a term "Whr" next to battery....what does it stand for (i think its working hour then is it real?? what is the actual back up time)
