Hi,


My Relative is looking for a Lappy between INR Rs. 20,000 to 26,000

Main Usage is MS office No gaming at all,Browsing and thats all...

the Screen Size should be 14 inches....
If the size of Harddisk is bigger than better..



I gave a few Suggestions

the Hp 430 Laptop Given by my College which is decent...its bit higher than the budget but seems good I just want to know the Experts suggestion
and anything that cheaper and better
The Configuration of my Hp 430 is as follows
core i3-2350
4GB Ram
500GB HDD
14Inches..


Here`s my List of a few suggestions I can`t seem to find any with a more Disk space

The Laptop does not have to come preinstalled with any O/S......

The Lesser the Price the better....

the Toshiba Laptop seemed nice but I have no idea how good its processor is......

the User will run Windows 7 profession or home basic

Nothing much will be done with Laptop Other than MS office browsing a few PDF documents

And Most Importantly weekly Backups

Well the Toshiba has a processor speed of 2.1 GHz.

Well with in your price range is the HP 2000-2b22dx
Specs:

2nd Gen Intel® Core™ i3-2328M processor

Features a 3MB L3 cache and 2.2GHz processor speed.
Intel® Core™ i3 processor

Features smart 4-way processing performance for HD quality computing. Intel® HD graphics provide extra graphics power for your laptop when you need it.
4GB DDR3 SDRAM

For multitasking power, expandable to 8GB.

Has a 500GB HDD

I bought my hp stock I love it like crazy. I can do all sorts of multitasking and games etc. So for what you want to do it would be perfect for you! If you want more I can send a couple of links but that is the cheapest I found

All those laptops are basically Pentium dual core or A4 dual core which is fine for MS Office use and browsing. The Lenovo has the largest hard drive and has a slightly higher clocked CPU compared to the Asus. So basically the Lenovo is the laptop to pick.

Just wanted to point out that those links say LINUX OS.....If you have to use Microsoft Office, best to have Windows OS.

Hi he has purchased the Lenovo Laptop



Toshiba Laptops are of good quality but most people who have purchased a lappy with a prob or defects have suffered with warranty and tech support issues....
Atleast in Chennai this is the prob



Thanks everyone for your Suggestions
