The Laptop/Notebook thread.

Recommended Posts

You have GOT to be kidding me. Its an ultraportable buddy, the worlds thinnest laptop. .16th of an inch thick. Thats really amazing.

 

Besides you get an optional external optical drive and a SSD drive. Its not targetted at media junkies or gamers but at people who travel a lot and dont need the extra graphics capabilities. The laptop looks really AMAZING

^Its pretty sh*t imo

 

No Optical drive or ethernet plus PATA Drive @ 4200RPM WTF ?? Plus the next version costs 3k and no model in between for 2k ??

 

I think its a disaster imo. Macbook or Macbook Pro is still better than Macbook Air

 

Gotta agree with you. This is MacBook Air Prologue. Expect the real deal in 2009 lol.

Need quick answer. Do help ASAP.

 

When buying a Dell Laptop (namely a 15 inch Dell Studio 15) would it be better to go for a 3 year complete cover or would that be unnecessary? How good is dell service and does getting a complete cover offer (in reality) any significant benefit over getting just a limited warranty?

yes, get the cover.. it's worth it.. Dell Service is too good..but the laptop quality isn't. Most of them also have heating issues and they also raised the prices recently..Best option right now (if u can wait a bit) would be to get the Asus U43JC

It's not for me, it's for a *friend* whose whimsical dad (he says yes one day, no the next, so best to go for it while he's saying yes :lol: ) doesn't think ASUS is a well-known brand name. So yeah, atleast he's agreed to a Dell.

 

Her PC is ancient to say the least. hence difficult to wait even further.

Go with the warranty dude..

 

i guess you just need to pay some extra 2000rs ryt?? its totally worth because dont expect the Dell to live more than one year without any problem!

 

I mean limited warranty Vs. Dell Completecover (drop, spill, throw laptop out of window, dog pisses on it, we still fix it blah blah)

Their on-site warranty is reliable in the sense that someone at least attends to a service request.Can't vouch for the quality of service though.

 

Dell's service centre in Chennai is shitty.They have a bunch of retards who don't know anything technical.Moreover,when I had a problem recently with an out of warranty laptop they wouldn't even diagnose it and give me an estimate for the repair.Instead they advised me to go ahead and get a two year warranty for 15k. :doh:

 

I have used two Dells and honestly the build quality isn't that great either.I will not get another Dell for sure.

^^ True but others are even worse in India except Apple (Dunno about Asus..Hope they are good). Plus at least you don't have to run around the service centers again and again. And from my experience, if you have complete cover, even if they can't diagnose the problem, they will replace almost every part of the laptop until it gets fixed :P

Guys.. Any of you planning to buy a Sony VIAO ..Think twice..

 

I bought one White & Silver E-Series from croma malad in May. I loved that laptop and got it for 46k. Within 15 days it stopped and refused to switch on.. I was asked to take it to Sony Service center all the way to Saki Naka..(Those of you who are aware of which bottom pit hole of the world Saki Naka is located at espacially in Mumbai monsoon will understand my plight.. Anyway!)

 

They said the batteryz gone and they will replace it.. They did that and I got my laptop back.. Just 2 days after..It again went into this coma..and I sat there looking helplessly at him.. :huh:

 

This time again I took it to Saki Naka and they said, they will replace the mother-board.. I got my laptop back in a week's time and found it recuperating but verrry slow..

 

In a week's time it again refused to switch on and went dead..

 

By now I was totally frustrated and so I dumped that laptop of mine at Sony Service station at Saki Naka and asked for a replacement -a new piece.. It's been 2 weeks since then. They said they will replace it but they are out of stock of an E-series Viao laptop..

 

To cut the long story short.. Can any of you help me how to fight this out?? I even complained in the Sony Consumer Cell gotta a mail of apology and I also registered a complaint online on Consumer Grievance Cell.

 

I am very sad and disappointed now and miss my Laptop!! :cry:
