1. my budget is 1200 US $. i can't really exceed it.
2. buying from u.s. is not a problem. since i live in india( asia)
3. people are my home are not preferring dell.
4. i need a notebook for entertainment (gaming..m not to addicted to it, movies etc.) + study stuff

so here are the notebooks. select 1

1.sony VAIO® FZ Series Notebook PC
( it has an extraNVIDIA® GeForce® 8400M GT GPU with 1023MB Total Available Graphics Memory)


Code:
https://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10151&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=8198552921665487060

.p.s. what's bugging me is i heard that sony gives u an international warranty. can this thing be confirmed?


2. apple mac 13"
Code:
http://store.apple.com/us/configure/MB403LL/A?mco=NzQ3Njk1

student discount of 12% is available in india, so it will cost the same as priced. it doesnt have a graphics card and 13" is i dont know cool for movies +games


3. dell xps M1530
Code:
http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/xpsnb_m1530?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&~oid=us~en~29~inspnnb_smart_values_1~~

i talked to their agent( in u.s.) they say if i get a 3 year warranty, then the warranty is valid in india for workmanship defects and hardware problems.( it already has 2 yr. warranty with it)


4. if any other one u have in mind except these around the same price, do let me know

thanks

i would look into the sony if you can. i have a blackbook and its not very good for gaming at all. i love my mac dont get me wrong its just that the integrated graphics on the standard macbook just isnt that great.

I also have a asus F9 series notebook and its way better at gaming. gforce 9300m graphics for around the same price 1200.

i never heard of asus actually. i will look into it. mac doesnt have a good graphics card, which means i will have to compromise looks over graphics if i go for mac?
