  1. guys waiting for your reply(s)
  2. Hello and welcome to the forums
    The HP model has a 5650M which is significantly faster than a HD 5470M,so it will perform better in games.
    And the difference between the CPUs isn't much, so go with the first one.
  3. First thank you for that quick response....... :)
    The only thing that I need in the HP is the Blu-Ray drive,So is it possible to add aftermarket,If so how much would it cost? :D
  4. I think its possible,not sure about the cost though.
  5. Also one doubt that my friends say that core i5 is outdated Why buy a core i7 instead?
    What will be the real difference between these two,will it effect significantly?
  6. Which i7 models are you considering ? the quad core models(like i7 720QM) or a dual core model(like i7 620M) ?
  7. HP DV6-3050TX

    Operating Systems: Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium

    Processor: Intel Core i7 720QM Processor (1.6 GHz, Turbo Boost upto 2.8 GHz, 6 MB Cache)

    Display: 15.6″ inch High Definition LED Backlit WideScreen Display

    Graphic: ATI Mobiliy Radeon HD 5650 Graphics Card (1GB)

    Chipset: Intel HM55 Motherboard

    Memory: 4GB DDR3 (1066 MHz) RAM

    Hard Disk Drive: 640GB Sata (7200 RPM) Hard Disk

    DVD Writer: LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD±RW with Double Layer Support

    This one just costs Rs.10000 more but I have planned to keep it for atleast 4 years so will this one be good?
    Also I will ask the dealer about putting Blu-ray drive....... :)
  8. It depends on the tasks you do, but since you are going to keep it for 4 years,then quad core is the way to go.
  9. Thank you friend........By the way I will be getting the same soon,Should I buy any cooling systems or so because I will be using my laptop for at least 4 hours a day continuously.
    I am very much new to laptop world so what kind of cooler will be better,any models ps.
  10. First buy your notebook, if you found it hot, then get a cooler if you want.
  11. Thank you friend for helping me so finally decided to get the same........ :)
    Finally I am going to compromise on the blu-ray drive as soon I will get a blu-ray writer for my desktop so will it be compatible with my HP pavilion PC with Core 2 Duo(2.4Ghz),2GB RAM,NVIDIA GeForce 7100 nForce 630i(128MB-dedicated graphic card) and can I add a Dual-layer Blu-Ray writer drive?
  12. Best answer
    hmm, I just searched more, and "maybe" it won't fit, better ask from HP to be sure.
  13. Hi friend you have helped me a lot,Thank you.
    Then I will try getting Blu-Ray writer for my laptop itself.
    I am very much satisfied with your reply(s) and will come back as when my friends ask for computer suggestion,Keep up the good work! :)

  15. No problem,glad i could help.
    Remember that you always have the option for an external blu-ray writer too.
  16. Yes then with external Blu-ray writer connected to eSATA or USB can I get the playback on Philips Full HD LCD TV It has HDMI port,then From where should I connect from my laptop or the drive? (But It is rare case,I will be just using blu-rays for backups only and getting any original film in Blu-ray is rare as its costly.... :kaola: and I dont want only Playable Blu-ray drive or player because I like to write into them :) )
    Please clarify my doubt......Sorry for disturbing after closing.........
  17. You can connect your laptop with either of these options

    *Composite/phono plug (RCA)


    *Video graphics array (VGA)

    *Digital video interface (DVI)

    *High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
  18. Thank you for clearing my doubts also a good link based on various connection :)
  19. No problem,glad i could help
