Model with i7 is having 2gb graphics card for sure as I had the privilege to see the laptop myself. And yes the screen is 1600 x 900. The speakers of samsung are just awesome, much better than hp dv6 7040tx.

Come on guys !! You cant say skullcandy is better or JBL is better just by hearing their names can you.

Who said skullcandy sounds better, it doesn't even have a mini sub woofers.

The truth is inspiron special editions are bad copy of my hp dv6, I'm not joking but look design and shape wise they almost copy everything, like touchpad, palm rest, screen edge design, exactly same style of hinge attached monitor, may be because last years XPS 15 users faced hinge issue. Samsung design is unique and genuine and make the difference.

HAR >> man thts a lil blow 650M 1 GB only (iff it is so :|)

Rider >> ur view on it ??? ( >> 1 GB GT 650 M)

650M is much much better than HD 7730M. HD 7730 is not even better than GT 640M. No, reason to compare with GT 650M. :wink:

I think thn i5 will b having ( most probably) 2 GB graphic crd...as cost diffrnce is not tht much to shed out 1 gb graphic and i7 cpu together.

Rider >> dude....wht I was asking was...did having 1gb GT 650 M against 2 GB 7730 or 2 GB GT640M will b a matter of concern ( read deal breaker)

I hate online shopping to purchase big stuffs like laptop, I purchased my my hp laptop from flipkart because they were offering a large amount of cashback. I done the full payment, because in cash on delivery can is limited to 50k. But flipkart cheated me and didn't deliver the laptop. Purchasing from shop is the best.

It's okay, everyone has right to speech.. if you think samsung laptop is not sexy, samsung laptop is not sexy for you. Their should no debate regarding to colour and design, common we are guys who cares that much about colour and design, this is gaming pandora. :mrgreen:

..if you quoted me and asked whats wrong with the design...god knows if its acceptance or opposing...
duh....!!!

OK...i shuld have captured complete quote. My mistake. :oops:

Now read it as an acceptance :razz:

I have no issue with smsung design. :) I am happy with its specs. I want it to be a For-me affordable gaming machine. Thts it.

PS: Black colour inplace of silver would hv been gud too. Just imagining. :)

Hey, I phoned those Compusoft Systems people too....Its in Coimbatore....they said they have no model available and that we can only order online...VAT adds up to 52k and odd...not too much...

@far If you find any supplier in Chennai, please let me know...:mrgreen::mrgreen:

Scratches will probably show up easily on a black surface, no? Any way is ok for me though...

No, I paid around 56k for my hp laptop and after so much emailing they returned my money after weeks. They said we can't deliver for unknown reasons, may be they got many buyers for this laptop and getting loss for cashback. All and all flipkart is reined nowadays they don't have any cashbacks, discount coupons etc. There are many sites like infibeam.com, buytheprice.com etc are much better than flipkart in deals.
My dv6-6165tx is made of bronze metal so no scratches. I'm very happy with quality of performance of my laptop though it is 8 months old and I uses daily.

I'm really inclined in buying this over 15r se but the thing that is worrying me is the heating of gpu and it throttling over 85 . Had it just been heating it would have been okay but I read that it throttles as well . Now I'm really confused . I have to order my laptop by around 11th of this month and need it in hand before 25-26 .
