#1

Salaam everyone

Please reply

with in this budget u have to buy a used laptop, bcoz the cheapest laptop available in the market is of acer starting from 40000

Go for one with the non-glossy screen. mine has a glossy screen and it becomes really annoying in an office environment. every good viewing angle reflects some light on the roof. the onyl good thing is u can use it as a fully featured mirror when off.

Go for a 15" screen. the smaller ones are costly for their portability , larger ones for screen size.

find a model for which u can find a new battery if need be.

nah man the cheapet of the lot in new ones are 30-35K

so if you go for used ones chk for battery backup time FIRST...

then run a memory chk via any gud memtest software...

and run some basic things like songs and movies to see if other options r fine..

u can get used laptops coz u will see 1st hand laptop price starts from 35,000-3lack. its up to u.

it depends what are ur needs. If u need infared, bluetooth, wifi and multimedia features then it will approximately cost u 50-65k.

that really depends on your use, what are you going to use your laptop for?


#15

I will use my laptop just for net browsing, doing some graphics work, to play some lite wight games and also some office work...

I will also use my laptop 10 hours daily.

So which laptop is best for me, is it acer or hp and also which monitor to buy in 17 inch ?

My friend bought HP PAVILLION last month at the cost of 80k and he says that his battery works for 2 and a half hours!!!

so u can think??????

As far as longest battery time is concerned, Lenovo Rocks, Absolutely no question about its capabilities. I've got Lenovo R61 8920 and with a 6-Cell battery, the usage time is around 5 hours (casual usage) and around 4 hours running power hungry applications.

I also own an HP dv6059EA (6 Cell battery), I purchased it about 2 yrs back, at that time the battery life was around 2 hours and now its around 1 hr and 15-20 minutes. Here I must mention that its an entertainment notebook with lot of multimedia buttons (shashkay :)).

If you ask me, I'll select Lenovo without any hesitation.

Technology is advancing quite quickly, you can find a laptop with handsome specs, quite cheaply.... If you want to live on the edge, check a lappy with 250/320GB Hard disk (preferably 7200RPM) equipped with DDR3 RAM, intel C2D processor etc.

I ain’t sure about Lenovo’s prices in Pakistan. I had mine from USA, one of my friend visited USA and I asked him to bring it for me. It was quite cheap price+postage $1130 (I also purchased an extra 2GB module for my lappy (it came with 1GB).

As far as the notebooks are concerned, I’ve seen some of the Pakistani websites (like beliscity and some other) and I must say that they are quite expensive.
