I am planning to purchase a laptop.I am basically want to use it for programming so I don't want a fancy graphic card or any other such extra feature.
I live in India where a laptop that sells for 700 $ in US is sold for 1000 $.I want to keep my budget within 1k $. I found a laptop Toshiba Qosmio T851/D8CR while searching online but didn't find decent reviews for it.
Here are its features :-
15.6-inch clear superview LED-backlit display with resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels Powered by a 2.3GHz Core i5-2410M processor Built-in a SpursEngine image processor NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M graphics card with 1GB of memory Gigabit Ethernet Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity Based on Synergistic Processing Element (SPE) quad-core Able to convert 2D to 3D real-time Harman Kardon speakers 8GB of DDR3 RAM 750GB hard drive Blu-ray drive TV Tuner USB 3.0 HDMI port Utilized 3D Window technology Runs on Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit OS 3D glasses free Laptop 3D images without dedicated glasses if the separate images are properly delivered to each eye 3D and 2D content in separate windows in a single screen
Is this configuration good? Are there any known issues with this laptop or Toshiba laptops in general ? How does it compare to a Dell laptop of a similar configuration?
And would you advise me to buy it or suggest some other laptop ?
All inputs will be appreciated.
