Dell XPS 15 will be good for you IMO .

Customize it to second generation i5 . If you are not into gaming then you can also look at new inspiron series !

If you can shell out 100k then the option 2 looks awesome . As discussed in your thread I think the option 2 will be a good choice IMO.

vicky some1 ( my cousin actually he's here with me) is saying me that should go 4 the new config as i just edited should i add 12 k more for 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7-2820QM processor 2.30 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 3.40 GHz is performance justified.

Do u have any idea how much time it take for laptop to arrive 1ce i order it ??

Order status :

If you order by Credit Card . It will ship in 7-10 working days . If you pay via Cash at chroma then it will take more time .

I think the below config has better screen and better config overall , which will be good in the long run . I for one will tell you that you will be happy when you have a good screen and a good gaming GPU etc . IMHO second option will be more better except the new XPS looks better. Just ask yourself what you want in your laptop.

looks doesn't matter what i m asking u is this
I am going for XPS 15 only then but

should i go 4 i7-2720QM processor 2.20 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 3.30 GHz instead of i7-2820QM processor 2.30 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 3.40 GHz and save 12k?? Is it worth 12k to spend to get an increase of 0.1Ghz!!!

yah save the 12k buddy. go for the lower one or i think the even i7 2630QM will suffice as tou could save more i dont know exactly how much.

I dont understand this, when you can pay so much, why cant you go for a alienware, its built for gaming

IMO Alienware = over-priced machine with killer looks and jaw-dropping setup, but quiet frankly, we don't some of the features. So better stay away from Alienware if your dad is not a millionaire.

I am planning to buy xps 15 and have decided for the following configuration :

2nd generation Intel® Core™ i5-2410M processor 2.30 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 2.90 GHz
15.6" (39.6cm) HD (1366x768) WLED display with TrueLife™
6GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM (1 x 2GB + 1 x 4GB)
500GB 7200RPM Hard Drive
Tray Load 8X DVD+/-RW Drive with DVD+R double layer write capability
2GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 540M graphics with Optimus
6 Cell Primary Battery

Its costing me Rs54,605 when i customized it from the dell online site.
Now i am willing to stretch my budget by about 2k-3k and i am confused what should i upgrade :

1. Do i get 8gb RAM instead of 6gb (2k more ) ? Will the performance be noticeable ?
2. Do i get the " i7-2630QM processor 2.00 GHz " (3k more) ?
3. Or 750 gb hardisk (1.5k more) with maybe back lit keyboard (looks cool :p)

I primarily use laptop for gaming , movies , surfing and music . and plz dont suggest me any other laptop . i have already set my mind on this one .

it says on the website that when u place the order u will be contacted by a sales representative .. and he will placing the order for you .
i guess the sales guy will be a local one so i hope to bargain at that time .. and yes i will avail of the discounts .. hence the 2-3k budget stretch in the first place :)
