    Hello,

    I am about to buy a laptop. Budget is around 38k. Initially I thought that Dell Inspiron 1545 is a good choice.

    But the similar config from Compaq is coming a bit cheaper (~1k).

    I can't tell the difference and they are almost equally trusted brands. What do you suggest guys?

    Any other advice too welcome.

    I would pick Dell over Compaq anyday!!

    Also, I think Acer 5738(G) and 5739 are superb models, especially 5739.

They completely have completely revised their product line and their price is almost like US market. Right now they are giving a Festival offer and u can get a super notebook at 33k.

    I think this a best buy thing because at this price, it is even hard to find C2D processors, and dedicated Gfx card is a dream.
