    Looking for a notebook/laptop!

    Hi,

    I am planning to buy a laptop computer for my personal needs. Frankly speaking, I don't have enough knowledge about laptops. It would be nice, if somebody could help me out in choosing one.

    I would be using this laptop as a desktop replacement. I should be able to: run office apps, play DVDs, burn CDs, and play games occasionally. Price should be less than $1750

    So, please suggest which laptop should I buy?

    I would not recommend Ubid. They make fake auctions, and you don't pay less..
    Try best buy, circuit city etc (if in US).
    Why not buy one with 3-D monitor. (not sure how much it costs)

    I have had good experiences with Dell Laptops in the past.

    Make sure you get one with a full size keyboard

    I had a talk with Customer Service Representative of Dell. He suggested me to buy Dell Inspiron 510M Notebook. It comes with a 15" TFT screen, Pentium M 725 1.6 GHz, 2MB Cache, 400 Mhz FSB, 512 MB RAM, 24x internal DVD/CD-RW combo, 30GB HDD etc. It will cost about Rs. 63000/- here in India i.e. approx $1450.

    Can anybody tell me how is this notebook? Is it a good buy? Please help.

    Regards,
    Manpreet

    Seems, like it has a pretty small hard disk! Are you set on a windows system or would you get a mac?
