Laptop Suggestions - 40-45k Budget : New Vaio's/HP/DELL??


hey guys,

An aunt of mine wanted to get a laptop for herself and i thought it would be fairly easy to pick one that's not too fancy considering the basic usage was the internet and other usual stuff. Nothing specific or high funda.

I was wrong.. i just happened to take a look at both Dell and Sony and i was really confused because both have revamped their lineup with the new processors as well as changes to their older specs. HP was another brand i was considering since they have been launching new stuff lately.

Anyways since i have NO EXPERIENCE at all with any laptop purchase or service etc... can some of you share any feedback on what your experience has been or suggest what i should get myself?

My only experience has been with my work laptop as a user. It's a Lenovo R400 but i really am not looking at any Lenovo model simply cos they're too damn heavy!


Basic requirements :
1) Internet surfing
2) Music
3) Usual video (no ultra high stuff)
4) No gaming
5) Adobe PS (no heavy use) -- decent processing power
6) Budget - MAX 45k
7) SERVICE/ WARRANTY --- I think this is one BIG factor

Options i was considering :

1) Dell Inspiron range
2) HP --- no idea
3) Sony's new budget offerings - CW / NW series


hope you guys can suggest some good options. I have no idea how ACER/ASUS/MSI etc are and if anyone has any suggestions.. please do let me know!

thanx

Re: Laptop Suggestions - 40-45k Budget : New Vaio's/HP/DELL??

^^ is HP that bad?? i've seen so many people use HP so i was wondering if i should consider them. Tho their builds do tend to be heavy.

Sony offers decent specs but i know its a little on the high side.


I've been hearing a lot of probs with Dell lately so i'm a bit skeptical to go for Dell..

anyone with info on Acer etc??

Get the basic model of Dell Inspiron 15 ~32k
It has a Core i-3 330M, 2GB DDRIII, 250GB HDD, Intel HD Graphics.
As after sales service is onsite it is a definite plus
Inspiron 15 Laptop Details | Dell India

The inspiron14 has the same specs but has a 14" screen and costs 1k lesser
