Toshiba with the i7 720QM and GTS 250M

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?

Best solution

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.
