    harryneopotter - I need a laptop due to living space constraints .. I have a 2 month window to buy it in .. so I'm not in a hurry.

    ManISinJpr -
    Core i5 or higher. (preferring core i5 to keep the cost down)
    Screen should have high resolution, 1366 x 768 Pixel on 15.6" screen looks terrible IMO.
    So either smaller screen size or higher resolution.


    @all / Luciffer - Serious advice only please.

    Thanks ,, I'll check out the ASUS-K53M .. Awesome specs .. :) , just the screen size/resolution is a downer.

    Will it be cheaper at ASUS retail outlets ??


    Also , I have a couple of months on my hands ..

    OK.. dbg... made fun of you enough :)
    But only cuz we all wuv you :) :kiss3:

    But seriously... In case you just want a lappy..
    To get work done... but don't care much about the latest greatest specs...
    then I could get you one cheap... like under 12K for a decent lappy .. from brand name companies.

    Sadly.. i5+ .. I cannot do. My guys rarely have those... and if they do.. I'll take them myself :)

    Unless you want Apple Then I can get you one really cheap. :)

    PS: Wait.. would you be interested in 1-2 yr old DELLs at appox 1/2 original price? (with Bill + Remaining warantee)

    Luciffer -
    I care about the specs .. decent computing performance is required as this will be my primary system.
    Gaming/Graphics is not a priority, just enough to play 1080p video smoothly.

    A used beefy DELL XPS or similar would be great.. with bill & warranty as you mentioned.

    Even I am bugging my friends to sell his XPS to me (XPS 15 - 1.5 yr old with Core i5 + 4 GB + 500 GB + 1920x1080 display + 9 cell battery giving 4 hrs now Original MRP: 62k).

    How does this sound for 40k ?
