  3. Toshiba with the i7 720QM and GTS 250M
  4. Thank you for the prompt reply.

    While the focus is on Gaming, i would also like the laptop to carry out other routine tasks with efficiency. Should i still go with Toshiba? Or will a Dell or Lenovo be preferable then?
    Another factor that seems important is the after sales service. Do Dell, Lenovo and Toshiba offer good after sales service in India?
  5. Best answer
    Although the Toshiba has older hardware, it is still faster.

    The i7 720QM is a true quad core from the 1st gen Arrandale, multi task will be better than the other non QM cpu, even if they are newer.

    The GTS250M although 2 gen old, it is a fast multimedia/entry gaming class gpu which will dominate over the Intel graphics as well as the low end GT520/525.

    I am not sure what after service you will get in India. I am in Australia. Sorry.
  6. Oh okay... thank you so much!

    Anybody in India with any opinion about after sales support for the above mentioned brands?
  7. i personally prefer dell....xps is very good 4 entertainment.....
    and specification is very good too....and also luks so good...
  8. Ok, thank you so much for your responses.

    Finally settled for a Dell XPS.

    Thanks a lot!
