Obviously, it has alot to do with what you're using the laptop for.

Personally, the most important thing to me, as a developer, is how much RAM I can potentially shove into a laptop. Every laptop I've ever owned had to be thrown out when I maxed out it's RAM capacity.

Alot of laptops max out a 2 gigs. I'm using 2 gigs right now, and it's not enough to run WebSphere Portal and IRAD 7. Anything I buy now has to be able to take 4 gigs at least.

Same here. The only reason why I changed laptops recently, is for the memory limit of the motherboard.

Any of those above have an ice dispenser?

Jesus, Cameron Thanks for your comments.

Any feedback on brand name. I am not opting for Dell as there is no Dell service center in India.

How is Lenovo ?? Any particular model ??

Amaresh

Usually, most 32 bit OS can only use 3GB of memory, the last gig is wasted on invisble DMA buffers, etc.
 
I suggest huckleberry pie. But the only thing on the gluten free menu is this tiny ad:
