I'm planning to purchase a laptop which fulfill my requirements.
My laptop use will be for programming(C/C++/embedded/graphics/system) and multimedia(songs, movies etc) and Also I need a machine at my hometown(I goes to my hometown frequently, on alternate weekends)
Currently, I've a desktop with following specifications..
Procesor: Intel Core 2 Duo
Motherboard: Intel D945GCCR
Monitor: 20" LCD monitor
I'm DAMM confused while selecting laptop.
Whether I should go with
* high end laptops(like core i3/i5/i7, 4-6GB, 500-640GB, 1GB graphics) which costs between 35K to 60K INR
or should go with
* basic laptops(like core2duo, 2GB, 320GB, 512 graphics) which costs less than 30K INR
Few friends suggest to go with latest trends, other suggest to go with the requirements(for that no need of high end laptops).
Budget is not a matter, I can pull it till 50-55K INR. But don't wanna waste money unnecessarily
Please suggest your opinions.
