So my 3.5 yrs old dell laptop just wont boot , most probably a motherboard fault , will get it checked on monday.
Anyways I was already due for a new laptop . Earlier I was waiting for January to get a new one , but now it seems i need a new one quite earlier .

So here are my requirements :-



1) What is your budget? ₹40 K approx


2) What size & weight consideration (if any) would you prefer?

Mainstream; 15" - 16" screen




3) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
a. Like:
b. Dislike:HCl wipro


4) What are the primary tasks will you be performing with this notebook?

will be basically dividing my lappy into windows and ubuntu
windows - for general entertainment ,Internet etc might play games very occasionally like fifa13 etc
ubuntu - for programming / web app dvlpt etc .


5) What screen resolution(s) & type (glossy/matte) would you prefer?
I should just be able to see whats on the screen :mrgreen:


6) Anything else you would like to say?

  • Processing power must be above avg,
  • should have a usb3.0 slot and total atleast 3 usb slots
  • I don't care about pre installed os as i am going to reparation myself.(still 64 bit )
  • Don't care about the speaker sound quality as i have my headphones and fenda speakers
  • RAM must be atleast 4GB , if anyone can point to a laptop with 6 GB ram in my range that would be divine .
  • Tough i have requested a mainstream size , it would still be a desktop replacement .But 17 ' is too huge
  • I would like to have i3 and i5 3rd gen cores , my previous exp with A8 was very bad .

^^^ AMD version is much better than Nvidia GPU... intel HD4000 is far better than 610m, i don't know what were the manufacturer's thinking while making this config.
try this Samsung NP350V5X-S01IN Laptop. I5 +7670 m GPU will handle Fifa 13 at ultra settings easily.
Or
HP G6-2303TX laptop...
both have same confiiguration.. but samsung is offering extended warranty and is lighter and also has an empty RAM slot so, you can upgrade to 6gb for 1.5k
