    Hi,
    Suggest a good laptop under 30k (not even 30.1:|) budget for one of my friends. I found ACER's newly launched eMachine D725 for Rs. 28k. It comes with 14.1" Screen, dual-core Intel Pentium T4200 processor with dual-channel DDR2 SDRAM, 160GB HDD, 8x DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive and integrated 'low-luminance enhanced' webcam, touch pad pointing device and quick launch keys.

    Any more suggestions!!

    Could you please tell me where is it available in India? It is showing price in $ so it might be costly in India.

    Another ACER Model i found good is Aspire 5536@30K. The details are:
    AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core 2.1 GHz, 1Mb L2 Cche and AMD M 780G Chipset, 2 GB DDR II, 320 Gb HDD, 15.6" WXGA LCD, 8x DVDRW, ACER Crystal Eye Camera, Bluertooth, Card Reader, Modem, LAN, etc...

    It comes with a free gift scheme. One can choose from :
    1. 250 GB External HD
    2. External USB DVD Writer
    3. Hi-Speed USB Internet Dongle

    But the catch is that one has to pay Rs. 999 extra to get any of these. What you say guys!!:lol:

    what about intel config based on T6400 proccy(or T4200 do not remember), its pric is also sub 30K, this is what I saw in advertisements in newspaper. Since last week I have checked Acer have given quiet a few ads in newspapers with prices of very good intel config based laptops in less than 30K

    He was not interested in spending an another Rs. 999 to get the 250 gb portable Hard disk which was under some gift scheme by ACER. So i opted for it. :razz:
