Which laptop: Compaq or Dell

Broken In

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.


Bond, Desi Bond!
I would pick Dell over Compaq anyday!!

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


BLah.. Blah..blah.......
Even i go wid Dell... atleast for their after sales servicing which is good enough... about Compaq/HP i have heard and read really bad 'bout it's servicing


laborare est orare
If you want a really powerful laptop in all aspect (For multitasking, gaming etc), please have a look at the newly launched Zenith laptops. 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.
Here goes the details:
Zenith SO Director Plus Ultra

C2D 6500 2.1 Ghz (800 Mhz FSB, 2 MB L2 Cache)
2 GB DDR2 Ram (667 Mhz)
320 GB 5400 RPM SATA HDD
Nvidia 9600 M GS 512 MB Dedicated Gfx card
15.6" WXGA screen (1280X800 max Resolution)
2 MP Webcam
10/100/1000 Mbps LAN
56 Kbps Modem
3 in 1 Card Reader
PCI Express expansion slot

Built-in High Definition Audio – 2 Channel; 2 Stereo Speakers; 2 Omni-Directional Digital Microphones
2 USB, 1 USB/E-sata combo
and others.


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.
