Here is a link to performance (slow loading).
Looks like the 540M would be a better choice. It's a class 2 (6490M is the lowest class 2 listest. Individula game performance is listed on the right side (lower portion).

Note a 2nd advantage with the Nvidia GPU, when paired with a SB notebook, is the ability to switch between GPU and IGP when switching between 2D and 3D applications - AMD stillllll working on getting this to work well. Affects battery life mostly.

750/500 GB sata
and nvidia 540m 2 or 1 gb/ ati 6490m 1gb

Ryt now, I am just checkin' all my options. i havn't finalised yet.

That wud hav been swell!!!!

That budget is very hard to get GTX 560M, Maximum you will get 6770M or 555M, you might find one refurbrished but.
If you want new, You buy in newegg no problem? If you can't try to find it on other stores.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for 555M
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for 6770M

I like the 6770M more because it has i7 instead of i5. But it is a bit more expensive at $900 free shipping. I don't also care about screen sizes whether it is 15.6" or 17.3". Basically 15.6" is more portable.

I think both should run skyrim and battlefield 3 in low and medium setting a 40+ fps.

Oh you don't tell me you from India. I like HP more you know. Maybe the specification those in USA is different than in India. So you know, there will be a difference on the GPU. Check the local HP dealer and check if it has 6770M.

Well, on the HP site they give 6700M for about Rs. 56,000 , thats bout 1050$!
My budget ain't do thrifty. Plus, this is gonna be my first laptop. So don't wanna over-indulge if u know wat i mean. I think i'll get Acer, coz for 850$, it packs a solid punch.
here's the link 2 my selection -

http://www.acer.co.in/ac/en/IN/content/model/LX.RPZ02.0...

BTW, I also got my eye on this timelinex laptop from acer -

http://www.acer.co.in/ac/en/IN/content/model/LX.RHJ02.1...

although, the timelinex's battery is almost twice as good and it's looks kill. but it has only got 3 gigs of RAM, only 1GB graphics and no usb 3.0. I have an external hard drive (seagate goFlex 500GB) which is USB 3.0 enabled, and I use it a lot 2 make backups frequently. So, I am leaning towards buying the aspire model.

Look at 56000 Rupees o.0

I forget if HP prices in India are far too big differences. Get the Acer Aspire, Only buy timelinex when you bring our laptop outside to cafe, airport or whatever. When you don't go outside with your laptop then get the Aspire one.

yeah, i'll get aspire. i am ready 2 give up the looks of timelinex, but tht baby looked sUwEEET!

and aboout hp, yeah, look how small they are offering for such steep a price. i mean, 6770M may give 7-8 more fps at higher settings in games of '11, but that is no argument 2 pocket our money!!
