  1. Hello
    The Lenovo model has a slightly faster CPU, and a more powerful VGA,so go for it.
    However,having an i7 Quad core CPU in a 15" chasis will cause overheating problems so its better to go with i3/i5 versions of it if you can find them in India.

  3. XPS 15 is also a great choice and has a great price,if you are OK with the amount of heat it produces,then go for it.

    decide one for me ..... i will wait for your reply ...... thanks.
  5. i5 540M runs at 2.4GHz whereas i7 720QM runs at 1.7GHz so in daily tasks(and most games),i5 is faster because of having a faster clock speed.
    i7 720QM is faster in multi-threaded apps such as Image/Video editing and encoding.
