I'm planning to buy a notebook thru my friend who is comming to India for vacation from USA.

Which is a better choice?

Dell, Lenova , Toshiba , HP , Sony

My budget is 1700 to 1800 US $.

Help me decide...something good value for money..

I've owned a Dell, HP (compaq) and a Toshib and have been happy with each. I would not have gone near a Dell but several people at work had one and they have good bang for your buck and aren't as flakey as I believe they once were. A friend believes them to be flimsy but I have never had any problems carrying mine around with me.

(All of the above is my opinion only)

I think Intel Centrino Dual core would be better. I am using HP - and its working just abt fine... Just check the service centers of the brands - if they exist near about the location where you are.

* Make sure the harddrive is 7200rpm, not 5400 or 4200
* Make sure the memory is 1x 1Gb stick, not 2x 512
* Make sure the wireless is integrated
* Ask about gigabit networking
* Make sure you get plenty of ports (4xUSB, Firewire, SD card reader)
* Get the fastest processor you can afford.
