    DELL seems too overpriced at the moment..

    My budget is now at 45k after recalculating my finance..

    Contenders are
    ASUS K53 ..@ 40K
    Lenovo Z570/580 .. @ 43K
    and maybe the Acer TimelineX 5830TG @ 41.5k

    ASUS is cheaper at 40k but im ready to spend upto 45k if it gets me anything better.
    The newer 3rd gen Intel Core processors are being rolled out so I'm hoping ASUS might get upgraded soon too.

    Ah, does this mean that I get to keep my Dell :D
    As well as I know you, gaming (retired pro)/development :confused:/Productivilty (Since when??? :p) are a big nay. get a big screen (High res) and biiiggg speakers. Rest of the config is less relevant for you.

    Quite true but HP Probook on contrary have pretty solid build and should be seriously considered.

    In terms of build it is very solid, true, but heat is a downer.

    Does the probook have a dedicated GPU, if so then does it have switchable graphics ?

    Friend's higher end does and when on GPU it does heat, which is sort of expected, but then again not as much as it does.
