Go for Hp or Dell...u can also look at Sony viao, Toshiba and Lenovo...lenovo though is a chinese brand is good and associated with IBM so nothing to doubt about....In Dell u can visit the site and configure it as per ur own needs so thats better...And in touchscreen of Hp they are good but u wont get much options in it..its better to with simple one...and if u have a good Desktop computer my suggestions would be go with a smaller screen i.e.12/13" that will be good...even i bought 15" Hp pavilion my father told me to go for smaller one but i didnt and now m realizing the mistake....now its looks bulky to me...

@ trojan' date=' you might be owning a few gadgets , but they are the best. Indicating towards E90, I always wanted to buy it since its launch, but my calculations went wrong. I thought I would wait for a while after its launch for prices to come down, but nothing happened since. I may still buy it, though E71 is available now at almost half price.

Thanks for suggestion , DELL XPS is indeed a fine laptop. I guess it has Nvidia Geforce graphics card on board.

I saw HP 676, it is one hell of a laptop.

One thing about Dell is that they do not have local support.

Yea i bought it last dec , arnd 34500 . Love it 2 its core . Well i personally dont like hp , all my friends using Hp complain a lot , it heats up very fast . Well Dell Servicing in under HCl , if u complain of anything , a guy will show up in 24 hrs of the complaint and repair and if it cant b repaired then they will replace it . And Xps has Nvidia 8600Gt . Sony Vaio just has looks , n expensive also. I am using Dell P4 laptop for last 5-6 years . Still works very fine , just replaced hdd once . though it costed me over 1.5 lakhs when i bought it ;)

Thanks BS, I am going to avoid, Sony, Lenevo & Toshiba. My choice is between Dell & HP. Ive been on DELLs site, but theres too much choice, I could not pin point a suitable model.

Ultra portables have their convenience, but for now I would look towards the basic 15" screen.

Yes, touch screens are low on options, but I like the concept, can you give some  nice model with touchscreens?

@ Trojan, thanks, E90 still retails for around 33k. Can the front VGA cam. be activated without making a video call?

I think Dells local support is dependent on Wipro. Did you check out HP 676, I think this also has Nvidia.

But Im concerned post warranty service by  Dell, as each visit by engineer costs 1000/- labour only.

No, Im going to buy from here only. Im very much concerned about after sales service from Dell, whenever I have problems with my PC or Laptops, local dealer really obliges, this cant be the case with Dell.
