Laptop buying guide: Mid-range(35k-50k), India, Q1-2012

(Note: This is Samsung Series 9. Not on the list as this is budget laptop list)

All the laptops here are decent performers   The following is a brand wise list.

All the PCs here are based on second generation Sandybridge CPUs. As buying anything lower, when ivy bridge is around the corner, doesn’t make sense.

HP:

HP Notebook DV6-6155TX Laptop:

Price: 45442

Good:

  • Decent enough processor (2nd Generation Core i5 2430M)
  • 750 GB HDD
  • Low end gfx card (AMD Radeon HD 6490M). Good enough for a non serious gamer.

ASUS:

ASUS X53SC-SX536D

Price: 35801

Good:

  • Decent enough processor (2nd Generation Core i5 2430M)
  • 750 GB HDD
  • Low end gfx card (NVIDIA GeForce GT 520MX). Good enough for a non serious gamer. This is similar in performance to AMD Radeon HD 6490M.
  • Asus has a reputation of solid build quality.
