I have never heard of a 5 or 7 core cpu. 6 core exists though. Laptops come in pre built config. So you might have to check with your local dealer about configs and prices.

Believe Me or Not!!!
I assume you r refering to intel's core i5 and i7. There are lots of laptop with core i5 from different manufacturer but laptop with core i7 simply exeeds your budget...
Dell is providing new series of inspiron with AMD quad core and tri core processors. One is inspiron M501 with:
Phenom 2 Quad Core processor(2 Ghz, 3.6GT/s)
4 GB DDR3 ram
1 GB ati graphics card
500 GB HDD
15.6" display
in just Rs. 41000.
I think its a good buy...

Ok since giving you i config is not possible, ill give you things to look for.
Get any intel cpu. They run cool as compared to their amd counterparts, unless something changed a few months back which i don't know of.
Get ddr3 ram. Its faster than any other kind.
Look for a blueray drive if available. Hd movies on blueray look awesome.
Get main connectivity-wifi, usb(should be 3 posts or more) esata also acts as usb, 5 in one card reader, rj45 for lan and possibly a modem card inbuilt for emergency use.
Look for a display of 16:10 aspect if your intended use of laptop is general computing, otherwise get 16:9
Look for a greater capacity hdd if you don't plan to get another external one for the laptop.
Lastly check the reviews of your selected laptop. Stay away from acer laptops for most of then have bad build quality.

Sorry Raj,didnot mean to offend you.You probably wont get a decently speced xps 15 within 50k budget,let alone xps17.
Here is something,if you can stretch your budget a bit,
eBay India: ASUS Laptop N61JV-JX379V i5 4GB 500GB DVD-RW WIN7 H Pre (item 150487714356 end time 30-Nov-2010 07:08:09 IST)
Now something within your budget,if 14"is acceptable for you,
eBay India: ASUS LAPTOP Core i5 2GB 640GB HDD / ATI 2GB GRAPHICS (item 140468089552 end time 19-Nov-2010 08:59:34 IST)
I personally would have taken either of them over the new xps.
