Hello Akhil,
You have got plenty of choice as you have 30K budget. I would suggest you to go in for either Dell or HP , avoid atom based Minis and Netbooks they are just waste of money.

for internet browsing, office suite, watching video etc you should be okay with Dual Core processor and 3GB of RAM with adequate HDD you should get this config for about 19-22K. These notebooks are not suitable for Gaming and HDef video etc. Since you are looking at a basic system this should be a good choice for you.

Then there are Core2 Duo processor with 3-4GB of RAM Laptops which would be in the range of 25K which can generally do HD video and few games etc

If you are looking at Slightly better performance go for CoreI3 gen 2 with 4GB of RAM this should be available in the range of 28-32K depending on the brand and config.

I came across few deals posted on DD I am listing here in case if you have not gone through them already.

@Dipesh, Its a very good config but only thing bothers me is Samsung as Computer manufacturer, sure they are good at Displays, of late with media drives etc. I have had quite a bad experience with their Hard drives

@Dipesh bro I would suggest Dell or HP both are decent brands in terms of reliability and after sales support. Toshiba is not bad either but support in India seems to be an issue.

As you may know most of the online stores will have good deals towards the end of the month, so thats the good time to buy!

Dipi bhai one piece of advice…avoid HP if you need an extended warranty. They dont provide extended warranty on consumer series.
Dell is good for after sales support. Same goes for lenovo as well, specially their Think pad series which are built to last!!

I agree with Harshk , Lenovo is on par with Dell and HP so you can look at Lenovo as well.

@Dipesh, Heating issue is pretty common with all the entry level models of all the major brands, its primarily due to intentional design flaw to keep the cost low. I have a Dell Studio 1535 ( this is mid range model not the low end even then) it gets really hot like a fry pan with in couple of hours of switching on, but of late I have seen Both Dell Inspiron etc and HP entry level models have good thermal design compared to their 2007-2009 models. I would suggest checking out the model at a B&M store before placing the order online.
BTW Dell also has retail outlets now, they are going HP way. If you have some one Dell you can get better deal :)
