According to me best laptop from home users is Dell. It gives you all the features required by home users and most important it gives better battery backup as compared to other services. But just make one thing sure before buying please do check after sales service at your location.

Both DELL and HP are the best products. You can check for the processor i3, i5 and i7 (latest is i7). Selecting the laptop depends upon the usage and its activities. So you can choose accordingly.

As far the service concern, DELL has higher service rate than HP. HP will have a little bit slow process compared with DELL.

@ Jagannathan.

Who said i7 is newer to i3, i5.
Actually three are the introduced at same time only. According to capabilities of processors they have named like this. i3 is basic, i5 moderate and i7 for extreme use.

Refer this post for a detailed description about three intel processors.

I myself just bought a Dell XPS 15 laptop. According to me, Dell is a lot better than the other brands, as it allows you to customize your laptop, right from the color, to the processor and primary and secondary memory.
I got my own laptop which has the following configuration -

  • 2nd generation core i7 processor

  • 8 GB RAM

  • 2 GB NVidia Graphic Card

  • 500 GB hard disk @ 7200RPM

  • 15 inch HD screen

  • other minor modifications like a backlit keyboard and a 9 cell battery

I got the above configuration for around Rs 65,000.
No other brand like Hp or Sony had the same configuration, and an equivalent configuration was at least Rs 15,000 more than what I paid for the XPS 15.

They have a very responsive support team, and they make sure your queries and problems are solved as soon as possible.
The only downside to Dell is that if you customize your order, the (home) delivery takes almost 45 days.

But according to me, if you are getting exactly what you want in a price that you can afford, the long wait is worth it.

The best laptop for home use would be definitely Dell brand. They are reasonably priced with great performance.Their customer service is excellent.
Dell Inspiron is best suited for home users.

Two ways in choosing the laptop. One is Cost Wise and another way is Brand Wise. If you feel like low cost and better feature. you can go to compaq type laptop. It is best for cost and performance wise. If you feel branded level laptop. you can go to Dell and Sony Vaio laptop. They are giving lot of feature in laptop. They are also giving lot of configuration and performance in the laptop. Original Operating System and Original Antivirus is need for any laptop to buy. Think it.

Hi friend,

According to me, the best laptops are LENOVO-z series, newly released HP-envy series, HP-pavilion series, LENOVO-Thinkpad,sony.

dell provides customizing options between features and pricing options but i dont know most of my friends had bought dell and had some problems like heating,etc what i have observed was that dell does not provides certain heat sink and ur laptop heats up quickly while playing high graphic games etc.

And if u are looking for gaming and entertainment purpose and if u think u had more budget then go for ALIENWARE(dell) particularly build for gaming and entertainment and also see recently released MSI-GE603 gaming laptop.

And if u think price should be reasonable and should contain all features along with graphics then my suggestions are HP-PAVILION OR LENOVO-Z SERIES

And best performance and long life of laptop which ever brand u buy also depends on how u will use and maintain your laptop carefully.

myself using LENOVO-g550 till now i didnt had any problems about laptop

I agree with Omkar on Dell XPS. If you want a laptop for home use then XPS is the best. Though somewhat bulky and most of the people do not prefer 15 inch screen, but it should be the best choice if you are going to take it with you often while travelling.
It is one of the preffered one for gaming, watching videos and music.

I can suggest you to use LENOVO Laptop because of good service and best performance with long life.

I have bought LENOVO since March, 2008 and still I have not found any single problem regarding performance of laptop(notebook).

You will get good configured notebook for home use in just 25000 to 30000 Rs.

And one thing to remember, please buy notebook with no operating system installed on it otherwise this could charge you extra like 2000 but if you choose laptop with DOS operating system, you will later on install the OS you want.

It is right to say that ASUS notebook series are really good and versatile when it comes to choosing a laptop. But on the same hand they are not affordable. The price range of this is between $ 610 - $ 625. But in this range you will get a laptop that would not only perform everyday tasks, but also you can enjoy high-definition video and games to some limit. Today most of the system are Windows 7-based. It has a Core X3 i3-350 cpu. Core i3-350M operates at a speed of 2.26 GHz and has two hearts. But it lacks Intel turboboost if you can not over clocked. It has 3 MB of L3 cache or L3. For the ram thing you can have around 4GB support. You can upgrade that to 8GB. For the graphic option it comes with Intel GMA HD which can decode the HD content. You can play the games at low temperature. You can play Sims 3 on the frozen throne or other games of similar specs. Another disadvantage of HD Intel GMA graphics cards is that it's integrated graphics and system memory is required. To play any game smoothly a graphics card with dedicated graphics memory is preferable.
