Let me start by saying I'm NOT trying to be a smat alec.

You need to be a little clearer about what you have to spend !
I'm in the US .
35K to me is $35,000. ! [would buy one heck of a laptop]

If you ment $3,500. that would srtill buy a high end unit !

What laptops yo choose from would depend a lot on what you intend to use it for.
For webserfing, email, movies, music, general use a decent unit will do.
If you're looking for something that will play the newer games fairly well that will take a little better laptop

BTW, From using a google currancy coverter that is $796. USD .

$800 will buy a decent PC. Unfortunately, few on BC are familiar with Indian computer stores. However, we can suggest laptop models but know that not all models are available in every territory.

Here are some configuration suggestions. You cannot purchase from Newegg since you are in India, however it can help you see what is available.
Acer Aspire AS6930-6942 NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 - It has plenty of RAM, a decent CPU, and a large screen for within your budget.
SONY VAIO NS Series VGN-NS255J/L - This is also a good laptop with similar specifications to the previous one, only with a slightly smaller screen.

General suggestions:
At least a dual core processor, try to stay away from Turion and Centrino processors as they are often underpowered. The CPU should have a speed, for a laptop, of at least 2GHz. As for RAM, 2GB is suggested, but if you can afford to purchase more, go for it. If you are into video games, a laptop is not an ideal solution given the low-powered options in video cards. If you are a general user who isn't going to be gaming, you don't have to worry too much about the video card.

Dell is fine for laptops since most users cannot build notebook PC's themselves. Core 2 Duo is a very good choice for a laptop, just try to keep the speed above 2Ghz. or so. When you order the laptop, try and get at least 2GB of RAM in it.
