Looking to purchase a laptop


Can someone suggest me a good laptop ?? I'm from India.

Config :
1gb gfx card .
3-4gb ram.
500gb hdd
2nd gen - i 5

Some people told me that we cannot format Sony's laptop due to nonavailability of drivers etc.

Which company is good in terms of reliability Asus , Acer or Dell ?

Dell is costly as compared to Acer and Asus in our country.

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

I have used Dell for the last 4 years and presently using a Toshiba. See my specs below.

Both are very good and give a good service.

Your specs are quite reasonable for a mid range laptop.

Any branded laptop is good for you. Shop around and you will find a good bargain.

About Sony formatting problems, I am hearing it for the first time. You should find drivers on Sony website. Otherwise you can always format your system with ATA mode instead of AHCI mode which can be set in BIOS. With this setting the system will be slightly slow compared to AHCI mode.

I'd go with Toshiba as well - they have some great i5 models..
