    Hi
    I am planning to buy a laptop at around 35k. I know that I cannot expect much in this budget so a celeron with 256MB Ram or equivalent will do.The option at present I am having are--

    1. Xuva U17w by Xenitis (The only one with pentium M1.5GHz and 512 MB Ram).

    2. IBM Lenovo R51 MQ8 (Celeron with 512MB Ram)/ Lenovo C-100 0761D7A.

    3. Acer Aspire 3003 Series.

    4. LG Gec 50-2.

    5. Sahara (Cannot remember the model number).

    Please suggest the best one among them or any new one which is not mentioned.
    Budget is tight and a 15" screen is desireable.

    Well I have seen a Gigabyte laptop powered by celeron M with an awesome screen. Even the battery life was around 4 and a half hours which would suit your work as a professor. Stay away from Sahara and Xenitis, as they use some non Intel chipset for celeron M's in their entry level notebooks and goes unnoticed as many make their choice for notebooks based on processors. The Gigabyte model is seen here http://www.gigabyte.in/products/notebook/N521uc.htm Price is around 34k If availability is an issue of it in your area, go ahead with the IBM or LG.

    Sir, Latest from my contacts is that there good models from Compaq presario range which has a starting lineup from Rs. 21,550 with the VT4000Z and with a budget of 35K you can easily get AMD turion 64 2GHz along with 512MB DDR2 with 15.2" XGA TFT display. The Xenitis model which you asked for has a clock frequency of 1.73GHz.

    AMD solutions for the laptop is strictly a no go now. The price difference between them and the intel counter parts have become narrower than ever, so getting an Intel based Celerons and Centrinos makes more sense. While AMD doesnt lay any restrictions on the chipset to be used, it usually ends up with high power usage and a pathetic battery life in the laptop though they may be performing a lil better than the intel counterparts.

    Since these entry level notebooks come invariably with a 2200mAH battery, turion's wont give a battery life more than 1.5 hrs max. With intel chipset and a celeron based notebook you can easily get a more than 2 hrs battery life and even more.

    Thanx guys for your kind suggestions. It realy helped me. I am considering
    of buying lenovo c-100 as it supports ddr2 and has a 15" screen also. Any
    idea how it performs?

    And one more thing I did not understand that why someone is objecting at my signature. My signature contains exactly what I am. Any suggestion from my student is also welcome.I realy didnot understand the objection Mr.Rohan.
    Care to explain?

    Maverick I agree the power consumption of the turions are on the same level as the intel counterparts, but its the chipset used where AMD powered laptop fails badly. You can check any amd based laptod be it on sempron Mobile or the Turions ML-xx, the battery life takes a beating. Even with a 8 celled 4400mAH battery a sempron M and turion laptops dont last more than 3 on battery. Intel counterparts are a lot better in that respect.

    I own a sempron M based laptop and have worked on a turion notebook too, and so I have nothing against AMD but Intel wins hands down on the mobile arena.

    Ferrari 4000 won the best laptop in the Lifestyle shootout, It would never win a main stream laptop award.

    anyway we cant stop any one to disclose their identity... but u know it is suggested not to disclose ur ID over net... lol... :))

    hey ...its not like i have any objection.........but u gotta understand what a forum and the internet community it nurtures is...............its on a different wavelength.............

    Out here......there r ppl from different walks of life of different ages, students, IT pros, non IT ppl...............but all talk to each other as if they belong to one community.............

    Secondly u do not need to be so formal..........its a pretty casual atmosphere out here...............

    Thirdly.....this aint a IM .......... replies like "thanks, il meet u after class".........the thanks part was ok.........but meet u after class........to give u an anology..........it gives the others a feeling of a bubble within a bubble..........

    PS: I have nuthin against how u talk or what siggie u make.........its just that it stands out in a peculiar way.........
