    Go for DELL or IBM 69k both are good. IBM also works very nicely with Linux :)

    ok here u go:

    1. no laptop will give u superb audio...u will have 2 invest in either a USB sound card or a PCMCIA card...check out creative's site 4 that
    2. if u need like 4 hours of battery life then u need a centrino coz P4s will never give u that kinda battery life...my dell 9100 with a P4 prescott 3.2GHz gives abt 2 hours if i use it 4 apps like word processing...
    3. u would need a decent graphics card 2 run games like UT...i think the dell 700m comes with on borad video so that may not b a good choice....in that case, look at the dell 8600 (decent battery life) or 9100 (bad battery life!!!)
    4 .anything will run office apps!!!!

    check out laptops by acer, compaq/hp and dell b4 u make a choice...

    Thanks Nemisis ,I thought i had go for Acer Ferrari but however the Athlon the Notebook heats a lot..., Theres is no DVD writter, Battery life is just 2 hours , and the Ferrari Red Panel gets lotsa scraches ..
    I dont know but i read somewhere in Digit Magazine or C**p magazine regarding some Lg or Samsung Laptop which has battery life of 10 hours...
    Another thing Nemisis can you tell me one thing. When i play Movies on my laptop ( Present Aci ) with out the Electrical Adaptor ...that is on battaries the video is not smooth and is jerky until i put it on electrical Adaptor... Do you face such issues with you Dell...
    Only i am thinking of investing more than a Lacs i dont want to regret later with the laptop...
    Thanks one more people !!!!

    i think the problem is because ur laptop's processor and graphics card step down their speed 2 save power...that may b the reason 4 jerky video...i havent tried playin a movie on the battery yet...mine is a desktop replacement so i dont care much abt the battery life..... my power saving setting slows down my graphics card and dims my display 2 conserve battery life...i went 2 the dell website and saw that they dont have inspiron 9100 laptops anymore....dunno if they still have em in India....they do have a new 9200 based on a centrino...check it out...go 4 a centrino if u want good battery life....
