    Looking at it for the following -

    - Storage for media files (500-1T:cool:

    - HDMI out for playback

    - Graphics should support 1080p output. No immediate plans for 2K playback

    - Skype support - Should have good camera, and LOUD speakers.

    - 13 inches only. Not bigger. Preferably under 2.5 kgs.

    - Touch pad should not be over sensitive.

    I'm currently looking at the new XPS 13, but unable to get a 1920x1080 display model. The 2K resolution is a bit overkill, and so is the pricing. (1,10,000 INR). The 256 GB SSD is fast, but not the storage capacity that I require.

    I love the dimensions and the overall feel of the machine though.

    Also in the running, thanks to the pricing is the Dell 11 3147.

    Quad Core N3530 CPU, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB (5400 RPM) HDD.

    It has a 11.4 inch display, but has 10 point touch, can fold back to a full tablet form.

    Has a proper HDMI out (The XPS 13 has a display port out, so need to buy separate cable for converting to HDMI).

    Best bit is the pricing, which is around 24,000 INR.

    What say?

    ordered the newer Dell Inspiron 11 - 3000 series, with an Intel N3540 CPU. Everything else is the same as the 3147 above.

    23,700 INR after discount.
