Are you asking us to help with pirated stuff? That is not allowed here.

New dv6 refresh, HP dv6-6c10tx and dv6-6c11tx available in Singapore store now with Radeon 7690m XT(reported to be faster than 6850m)

In this case, you should wait a little. Expect HP to come up with a top - mid range card (for India at least, as seen in two previous iterations ATI5650 and ATI6770).

Hi, I am looking at buying a new laptop for about 60k soon. My main use will be for 3d design on softwares like 3ds Max, Maya, Mudbox and Sketchup. Apart from that I will only be using it for watching videos occasionally and maybe using video calls once in a while. I need it to be reasonably portable though so don't want a screen larger than 15.6". I won't be using it for gaming at all.

Will a DV6-6165TX be sufficient for my needs? Or can anyone suggest another laptop in the same price range please?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry if this is a basic question but the specs on the HP seem better? Why do you think the Sony Vaio would be better suited?
you don't need the specs of 6165tx since you are not into gaming
Sony Vaio CB35 has 1080p screen(better for movies)
BTW how much will you use 3ds Max, Maya,etc.
if the answer is maximum time than i would suggest

Asus K Series K53SV-SX521D -Price:Rs. 47775

The main use will be for 3d design. Will be using more of 3ds Max and Sketchup than Maya though. Thanks for your help!

I saw the Asus but was slightly put off by the fact it doesn't have an OS installed and also because of some of the reviews on Flipkart. That's why I thought of getting the Dv6-6165tx because it had similar specs but came with Windows installed and the general reviews seemed better. I am a bit of a newbie to laptops, I have never bought one before so don't know exactly what to look for.

Sorry if I am going off topic on this thread by talking about Asus and Sony laptops instead. :oops:

@swooosh32, For 3D rendering, I would suggest you to go for a laptop with an Nvidia Card. It has got CUDA cores which some plug-ins in Maya can utilize to maximize the rendering speed. The ASUS model Niilesh suggested, has got a really good configuration and an Nvidia GT 540M card with CUDA (Its comparable to the Radeon 6770 on the HP). But the models of Asus like K53SV-SX520D, 521D has got a keyboard which flexes on touch and seems to be loose. There is another model from Acer with 540M.

If you are in to gaming, then HP 6165/6121tx have the upper hand with the ATI card.

Thanks for the help folks. How reliable are Asus/Acer in comparison to HP/Dell etc.

Should I make a new thread to discuss this btw? I don't want to disrupt this one by talking about other manufacturers?

buds, got a question. If i start hp support assistant and check for updates it gets a long list and what i want to ask is whether i should go along with it. i am afraid as it contains updates for all the devices and also the bios. will it mess up my laptop or is it safe?

I think you are running your GPU in 'Auto Switch' mode, instead of 'Fixed Mode'. Change it to 'Fixed Mode' in the BIOS, and then select 'High Performance GPU' in CCC. Run the WEI again to set the scores straight.

the score is low due to the low disk data transfer rate,how did you get wei of 6.9 then,the lowest score determines the base score
