At Rs. 38,000, with Windows 7 Home Premium, this is easily one of the best value for money laptops out there which offers a great balance between price, features, and performance. Plus it has a large 15.6-inch screen, isolated keyboard, and a large touchpad to work with.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570: Lower middle-class GPU that features a low shader count and a 64 Bit memory bus but a high clock speed. Similar to the desktop Radeon 4550. Supports Avivo HD and DirectX 10.1.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

M300:

Entry level dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based (partially?) on the K10 core. The performance should be compareable to an old Merom based 1.8 Core 2 Duo. The CPU supports 64 Bit and Virtualization.
