The Middle man between the Dealer and Me is a Old frn of mine....he just called me up and said that the Dealer is ready to give me some other model of the same or lesser price if I want and the Delay is not going to have any forseen end....!


The Dealer is offering " Iphone " or " N 95 " to me, he didnt talk about refund....

yeah do get an iphone and then ask AT&T to provide you with their service or maybe O2 for that matter :P

In short don't go for an iphone as of now. They are still waiting to crack the new firmware although its already proceeding quite well. 3rd party applications work quite well with this new hack. You will be better of with Nokia N95 as of now. You don't have to worry about the whole unlocking part + plenty of applications for Symbian or get a Windows Mobile device.

Hi guys,

Am thinking of buying a laptop in a month or two MAX as currently I have to travel for 4+ hours to my company to do the same amount of work that I can do if I have a laptop at my place. Personally, am thinking of opening up my own office with my buddy as partners.

Now we are thinking of buying two laptops, so here I am :) trying to ask my Indian gamer buddies which brand should I go with ?

Am thinking of at least going with 2 Gb of RAM and a Core2Duo. Also, one of those laptops, am thinking of putting in an awesome video card, may be an Nvidia Geforce 8600M so I can play some of those 360 to PC ports :P

So guys, which brand would you recommend ? Dell ? HP ? Lenovo ? I could care less about all the stupid things like finger print readers and sh*t like that. I would rather invest that kind of money in additional RAM or a superpowered vid card :P

Also, is it worth it to buy from official HP or Dell India with warranty ? The reason I ask is coz am sure I can get a really good laptop from Lamington Road (mostly gray market stuff) comparatively fairly cheap, but I also think that if I buy one from there, there is a very good chance those f**kers have done some chutiyagiri with it and removed or replaced some parts.

What say guys ? Thanx in advance for all the advice :)

HP/Compaq - great for low to mid level notebooks, decent service network

Dell - good customisation features, good service network, order processing take some time

Lenovo (IBM) - carries a premium, not recommended imo unless you're placing a corporate bulk order

Acer - same bracket as HP/Compaq (some great bargains available)

Sony - lol! gift me the extra money :)


Check the Dell Inspiron 1520 - you can customise it for C2D-1.66,2GB,8600M for ~60k (you might even consider ordering it from the US/Singapore along with a international warranty)

From personal experience:

Sony = suckage. Have had 4-5 friends who bought into the allure of the VAIO laptops during the last year and a half. Each of them have gone through at least 2 RMAs. And it's worse if you buy in the grey market. Repairing is a bitch and the build quality stinks. Not worth it at all.


Acer = got one running at home, my sister's using it. They've got some sweet deals from time to time and decent customer support. They're decent but nothing special.

Dell = great stuff, great customization, but processing orders takes time as currently they handle things via mail order rather than have an actual brick and mortar store. But, the after sales service is good and the build quality a few notches better than Acer or Sony.

Macs = i love them but Steve Jobs does not love me what with their horrific pricing. Import if you must.

And yes, it is totally worth it to buy your laptop with warranty considering that your area has power issues and besides, if something does happen, you don't want to be left spending a huge wad of cash on repairs.

There are different Semprons for different sockets, Sempron is basically AMD's entry level processor, and there have been Semprons for various sockets. AMD's current version is AM2.

Tell them to download CPU-Z and then tell them to check the socket there

EDIT - here's the link for CPU-Z :- http://filehippo.com/download_cpuz/

Socket 754 has been phased out, so I don't know whether you'll be able to find those boards on the market. You may though, I'm not sure.

I was checking on Newegg, and I saw an Asus K8V-VM board on there. It has a PCI-Express x16 slot. Asus is a good company, so get that....provided you're able to find it.
