I need one for my family in India. It just needs to accomodate surfing at the least and not too much more.

I am wondering if i need to take one from US or just buy with warranty in India. Any inputs are welcome. BTW the location i will be buying(if needed) will be Hyderabad.

If I am not wrong then for just surfing/entertainment purpose you can get good laptop in around 40K-60K of good companies like compaq/Lenovo etc.

True, that if ou buy from India, then if in case if there is any problem you can catch the neck of shopkeeper anytime.

And if I am not wrong then if you buy the same configuration in US then it would be cheaper than India anytime.

I disagree with RK that laptops with the same configuration would be cheaper in India than US. I just a bought a Dell Laptop for my friend which cost me around $750 here in US and the similar laptop in India(if available) would be atleast $950. Even Toshibas are cheaper in US than the ones sold in India.

Looks like RK made the same point(laptops in US cheaper than in India)

What about the warranty,it would be valid in india too,if i will buy same stuff from abroad?
I mean will they provide me an international warranty?
