Thanks jkdas.

Update: Tracked online. Manufacturing build complete. Expected date of delivery 15th Feb.

I don't think that's happening though. Manufacturing build has been completed on 6th Feb and it hasn't moved. So I guess it might take longer.

Yes, its i5-430M (with Intel HD Graphics) and the prices are after taxes.
Similar spec Dell costs close to 51K + delivery charges & extra with Dell is Windows 7 Home OS.

Yes, graphics card can be added. That would cost around 3K. I didn't check the specs.

51K was for Dell Studio. Just found today that Dell Inspiron with similar specs is around 42K (S541205IN8)

Default Apple MAC discount at CROMA

Just got a Apple Macbook pro 13 inch for 70990 (Declared price of 74xxx) at CROMA mumbai.

MS office 2008 was offered free.

Interestingly CROMA had 2 year extended warranty for 3999 much less compared to Apple protection plan.

Appreciate if somebody has comparison of the CROMA ext warranty vs Apple protection plan.

guys,

what are the limitations of netbook.
One thing i can point is it hasn’t got CD/DVD drive.

other than this is there any limitations of this? my use is for internet and some small software which used to run on my 4 year old 1.666 MHZ P4 CPU?

DO these S/W run on Atom processor netbook with WIN XP?

Recshenoy,

Apart from the lack of a cd/dvd other limitation is a relatively small screen ranging from 7'' -10.1''. You can add an external us cd/dvd drive which are pretty sleek.
You will be able to run all your Win XP programs which runs on your 1.66 Mhz PIV processor. Atom processor packs a lot of punch in a small package.
I have got 3 netbooks which i use extensively and one is even running Windows Server 2008 quite effortlessly
From my experience i would suggest you stick to Samsung , Asus or MSI. My samsung nc10's battery lasts for more than 7 hrs !!
