Dell tech visited today. Dell has outsourced this part to some third party.

He had a replacement motherboard with him, and Laptop was working again after motherboard replacement.

Overall, quite impressed with service levels.

Quite good config for the price + 3 years warranty.

If you live in a Metro, go for it. Acer's service is not that good in smaller cities.

Also check the Gateway Brand - it's a subsidiary of Acer. Acer does all the service & support also for Gateway. Gateway is usually a couple of thousand cheaper than Acer for a similar configuration.

Default Need small portable and light laptop for extensive travelling

Friends,

I need to buy a new laptop. Following is the criteria, please provide advice and inputs;
1. Must be SMALL, ultraportable and light to carry. I currently use an HP 13 inch laptop, but i find that too quite cumbersome, big and heavy(esp with charger etc). Im looking for a netbook size that i can easily shove into any small bag.
2. Should have decent battery life.
3. Usage is for photo applications, some MS office applications and extensive use of internet on the go.
4. Will watch loads of movies n video.
5. Should have a decent speed processor.
6. Has to be well built to withstand rough use.
7. Approx 200gb hard drive.

I checked out the netbooks with the intel atom processors, but Im told that they are quite slow, especially when running multiple media & photo applications.
Current users please provide feedback.
Please suggest model numbers of suitable options if possible.
I plan to buy within the next 10 days.

Thanks,
Jay

Finally found a Laptop which comes very close to my requirements:
Vostro V130 Laptop Details | Dell India

But I am unable to understand what processor does it has and should I compare it with Intel Atom / Core 2 duo / dual core / i3 / i5??? Can any one help me on understanding the processor??

I was looking to purchase a dell laptop directly from their site, the spec is an Inspiron R 14 Inch, i5 processor, 4 GB, 500 GB and 1GB Ati Radeon Graphics card. The price quoted was 42,500.
Does anyone here have any coupon codes for Dell or has any friend working with dell. I'v heard that the sales reps can get us good discounts if they really want to.

I have a Gateway Laptop bought a few months back for 28K.
It has Core i3-350M, 3 GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics, 14" screen & Genuine Win7 Home Premium.

In terms of chips

Core i3> Core 2Duo > Dual Core, I think.
So I think you can do a little better for 27.5K.

Question re: THE Laptop Thread: Configs, deals and questions

Planning to buy a laptop either from Dell, HP or Acer. Need to know which of these offer best after sales service, I stay in Thane.

Also confused between Dell i3 processor or Acer i5 processor laptops. The difference between the cost is very minimal. Would be using the laptop for home internet purposes + wife will use it for some graphic works.

I would any day suggest a Dell. Their on site service makes it all worth it.

http://configure.ap.dell.com/dellsto...iron-15r-n5110 The new Inspiron 15R for Rs.41,800.00, seems like a good fit for your needs.
