^^^^ I think aniket.cain has done that. This one has 8GB less space but is much faster than the Transcend. Also check out local shops, you might get it cheaper.

I have not done this yet. I have asked a friend coming from US to bring the caddy, after which I will swap the internal HDD with an SSD. I will surely update you guys once it is done. :)

Good luck finding another owner here who would agree with you on this. Though I was wondering, what is a "bogus i7 processor"??
Also, do you own this model, or saying so based on hearsay?

I will be buying a laptop after a month or so. I previously decided on the HP Pavilion dv6-6165tx but unfortunately HP has recently stopped the production of the dv6-6000 series. I would be using my laptop generally for gaming and entertainment (especially gaming) and the 6165tx was best suited for my needs since it had the AMD Radeon 6770m GPU. The replacements (dv6-7000 series have worse GPUs :x ) My budget is around 55k. Please suggest a laptop that is best suited for my needs.

Also I read in this thread that Dell and Asus are revising their laptops with Ivy bridge processors and better GPUs. Is there a tentative release date for these new series of laptops? I can wait max till late June-early July.

I asked Laptop if you can read :|

I know desktop's capacity.... BUT my question was laptop... AGAIN LAPTOP

I can read that but you're demanding too much from a laptop. If you want such, import one from US.

You are so funny!! Have you ever heard about benchmarks? It is the better performer than dell xps in same processor. Hanging is the issue of operating system. Hardware is not responsible for that.

Guys which is the Best HP laptop for Hardcore Gaming without any heating issues ?

Hardcore gaming in laptops can only be done in laptops like Alienware M17x, Asus VX7SX and MSI Gaming Series.
But the new Alienware M17x is the best, powerd by 3rd generation core-i7 3720QM, 8GB RAM 1600 Mhz, 2GB GDDR5 GTX 675M, Full HD 1080p scree in just rupees 1.58lac

Tou can't buy HARDCORE gaming laptop in 55k budget. Try to get second hand Alienware M17x
6165tx is an entertainment laptop, new games run fine in medium or high setting but not for hardcore gaming.

6165tx is available on Flipkart, and you might also get it in some local shops.
Dell and Asus are revising there laptops but I don't think they would also give anything more than GT630M in that budget.

Guys, Which software do u use for getting ur laptops temperature information...
Because my dv6-6154tx get very hot when i keep it on bed or sofa, it feels very hot if we touch it !!

Tell me any Good software to get ur laptops temp.


Also,
Buy Asus K53SV-SX520D Laptop at Best Price in India - Also find Specifications, Photos, Features & Reviews
Dont u think this is a very great and cheap deal??
Only prob. is usb 3.0 !! which matters, TO ME ATLEAST !


You can also try CORE TEMP for CPU temperatures...it has a ''Overheat Protection Feature'' you can set a particular temp you feel too high, and once that temp is reached the program automatically puts your pc to sleep...plus there are also many other customization

For GPU try GPU TEMP pretty simple interface

My webcam replaced.. hp service is awesome :)
I rated 7/10 for the service but that hp guy beg me for 10 minutes for me, I gave him 9/10. :mrgreen:
There was a cup of dust in the fan area.. he blew off all with a blower, noise get less.
Bluetooth is still not working, he said to recover windows and use recovery disc or press f11 in booting to reinstall, this is the only was to solve this error hardware is fine as it can recognise devices around.
Should I use recover or not? my whole data, games, softwares of C: drive will be lost. :|

Reinstalling the windows is the only option. You would like to backup your data or the whole C; image on an extHDD or pendrive or DVDs either via the Windows 7 Backup utility or (Preferred) NERO BACKIT UP.

thats nice to hear... so when you called up the hp cc, all you had to do is tell them the issue and they sent the technician?
and yes absolutely agree with you, its dv6 after all :)



When you call them and tell that you have some technical issue they fwd ur call to the technical team which immediately registers a Case detailing your complaint. An email is sent to you giving ur case id and details of complain. They dont send the guy straightaway, they first guide you through certain steps over the phone and ask you do certain things (like reinstalling drivers etc). If those dont help then they lock a visit from an engineer from the local HP Service Centre in your town. The guy visits you within the next 3 business days.

Before this they may ask you for certain files like the system logs or dmp files in case of BSODs...they take 24 hrs to analyze it and respond appropriately. Like they may fwd you certain Microsoft Windows Hotfixes specific to your issues to solve your problems...if this doesnt work they may ask you to reinstall windows if they appreciate it as a software issue. If they feel it is a hardware issue they straightaway lock a meeting with an engineer.


PS- IMO the gamers out there should periodically get their notebooks serviced. A very good option is call HP, register a complain saying ''I have temperature issues with my system'' (The guys at HP are really very sympathetic to temperature issues :-o ) and they will fix a meeting with a local engineer. What the guy does is he cleans the loads of dust in your pc especially fan, plus applies new thermal paste to wherever necessary. Helps keep temperature down. Do this every 2 months if you can.

Exactly...what a bogus i7 processor is :lol: Hanging is an issue of the operating system not the hardware....one clean reinstall of the Windows and all so called hang/crash issues are out of the window(literal one) :-D

ISSUE: The vertical scrolling is almost never successful with the touchpad. I have the latest Synaptic touchpad drivers installed.

The link to the latest AMD graphics drivers listed under support & drivers for 6165 appears to be false....it takes one to the HP US site...where it shows the msg ''request page not found''

NEWS: any body buying an HP Notebook please be aware that a Peace of Mind offer is prevailing in which you can get 2 yr extended warranty just for ₹999/- plus tax= ₹1133/- Offer is limited so hurry.

hello everyone!

my brother is going to purchase a laptop, most probably today. he went to a shop y'day and after viewing a few dell, vaoi, and hp ones, he's fixed to hp, particularly the one he saw - G6-2004TX (if you need to know more, i already have a thread here, but am writing it in this thread because its particular to the model i wish my brother to purchase).

he isn't much interested in gaming & wants the laptop more for multimedia & study-purposes, as well as running professional civil engg softwares, although i want him to have a laptop with a good GPU, as a good GPU makes a good all-rounder home-use laptop is what i believe. he hasn't disagreed to that. budget is about 50k for now, but he may stretch too.

now i have suggested to him the following:

1. 6165TX - avail for 58.5k at thane & mumbai (where i live). he lives at nagpur, where this model is not available. but i can ship the laptop to him. though this is the least probable choice due to the price.

2. 7012TX - a replacement for the above model. features are very good for the price, since fits well in the budget. though my only bone of contention is its GPU, which is slightly worse than 6770M / 7670M in other laptops. not that he would care so much for it, but I CARE :p

3. G6-2004/2005TX - all other features are inferior to above models, but GPU isa good one (7670M).

now am thoroughly confused. the 1st option will get cancelled if there's no chance of him extending the budget, which i will get to know by today evening. suppose if it gets cancelled, then between G6-2004/2005TX & 7012TX, which one would you suggest?! am getting a feeling that the unanimous reply would be 7012TX :)

thanks for reading!

Of course if gaming is no priority then 7012tx would be the ideal choice:-D
