basic requirement is web browser and office applications. not a netbook but a medium range laptop. battery life should be decent (more than 2-3 hours!).

would stay away from dell this time around.

samsung is probably the top option for me right now.

----------

went through flipkart. hard to get it with windows in this budget range. pentium dual core is something i would despise. looks like i would have to increase the budget. :confused:

it's required by a cousin and i do not want to deal with bootleg copy of windows. that makes things complicated. ubuntu would not work because he specifically needs powerpoint (freaking shame!).

----------

but then i do have a copy of vista lying with me unused. maybe i can install it on the machine. should work fine!

Acer Aspire Timeline X. Would be over your budget. I think the cheapest one is 33-34k. But look good and have 8+ hours of battery life. and core i3 processor.

Windows 7 Home Basic. EEW. I would probably get a machine with FreeDOS and use my Vista copy. I hope the DVDs are still working. :confused: And the serial number would be accepted. Otherwise I would have to deal with Microsoft folks all over again. :confused:

Acer Aspire Timeline X looking like the best option right now wrt battery life.

Cousin told me that battery life is important. I guess I can ignore the Home Basic aspect. I do not have to use it after all.

flipkart show three models. all permanently discontinued!
