wife: watch those missed moments me her favourite serials, downloading cookery recipes.

my kid: watch cartoons, movies (thank god he is not yet a games addict)

the budget is 33 to max up to 38

so based on the above listed needs i made the following as mandatory

* laptop should be good for rough use so finishing should not be glossy or fingerprint magnet .
* at least 2.30 or 3 hrs battery backup
* processor i3 2.3 ghz
* windows 7 home
* minimum 500 gb hdd
* 4gb ddr3 ram or at least 2 gb
* graphics card with 512 mb or 1 gb mem (love to have NVIDIA)
* >= 15" screen compatible to hd video

visited few showrooms found the offer and customer handing at pai electronics Indira nagar Bangalore is good they have all leading brand laptops

friends told toshiba is good for rough use

Toshiba
ASUS Model Name: X53SC-SX536D aluminum texture metal body
configuration i5 / 15.6" LED Screen / 4 GB Ram DDR3 / NVDIA Graphics card with 1 GB RAM / 740 GB HDD with 1 yr on site warranty at Rs 35,690 /-

ASUS cheaper with 740 GB hdd and metal body
ASUS is the manufacturer of mother board, ram and many computer components used by other laptop makers so its a good deal.



moreover Toshiba Model No.: C665-X5010 model is out of stock everywhere even their 1800 number customer support confirmed me that this model wont be available in future as they are going to release new models by next month

with tax and other charges TOSHIBA comes to 36,700 [Toshiba outlet]
where ASUS with all tax and other charges its 35,690 [Flipkart]

what do you guys say ASUS or TOSHIBA ?

Late but still

Best right now is the Samsung NP300 series. Lightweight and the best part is battery performance. It can go on for about 6 hours which is typically about 2x compared to others.
