  5. Hi Karthik,

    This is Vishwa from Singara Chennai. Great blog you have here :). I would like to get a decent laptop within my budget of 35-40K.
    Here is how I would be using it:
    1. A lot of skyping, hosting group calls etc.
    2. Some moderate gaming, being able to play some latest games like Diablo 3( I like Blizzard games ^-^) would be a great. I do not need very high end graphics though. Would reserve that for my PC :)
    3. I am a web developer and programmer and would require the usage of Photoshop and Dreamweaver and couple of other image editing softwares.
    4. Would require a high speed connection to go with it too, with decent bandwidth. I do not know of any good wireless providers who offer good and affordable bandwidth, would be great if you can provide any useful info you know of.
    Bottom-line is that my internet usage is pretty intense and I am totally dependent on it...

    I would be obliged if you could suggest me a good Laptop config for the above requirements that would hold good atleast for 2-3 years.


    1. Vishwa,

      Check these laptops, these will be good for your requirements

      Lenovo Ideapad Z570 - Rs. 39k
      HP Paviliom G6 1201TX - Rs. 41k
      Toshiba Satellite L750 X5317 - Rs. 43k

      If u go to a good laptop showroom, u can get them even cheaper

      Broadband : Dont go for Wireless Dongles, if u want good speed.

      Go for Landline connection, I prefer Airtel for Speed.

  6. Thanks Karthik, much appreciated!
