This is very old model. Not available in current days. As well as you can get I5 easily in 40000 online.. So, I will suggest not go with this.

this is an enterprise edition iim buddy! google difference of enterprise and consumer laptops.

you might get cheaper laptops at this configuration. but the one you quoted is definitely more durable and also comes with 3year in-house warranty!

i would say, if you can get a similar deal significantly cheaper outside (i.e. around 15-20% less) then go for it.
otherwise, this would be a good option.

if you’re not too much in gaming, the toshiba deal of homeshop18 or flipkart will be a value-for-money option.

cheers.

If you get the model at that price, i will say it is a good buy !

Same in Dell (Latitude series) will cost you around 65-70K

It is not consumer laptop. So, the quality is definitely much better than other consumer laptop even from lenovo.

3 year onsite warranty. ! And you know, you do not get much problems in LENOVO (IBM) laptop.

I5 2450M processor. 2.5Ghz . Much better than 2410 and 2430 processors.

HDD 7200RPM. Required for a high end laptop…

1GB Graphics. Not NVDIA. It is ATI.

If i have to point one -ve : There is no USB 3.0 / No accidental damage protection

Believe me… IBM are the lowest problem laptop. Dell has the best laptop service though. If you are planning for Dell, go for either Latitude series or VOSTRO (Cheaper). Do not go for inspiron models.

I wish if this model had come with USB 3.0, it would have been a hot cake. Still this is much better than any other model…

Thank you guys. you ppl helped me in trying to make a choice.

I choose thinkpad over insipron based on following things

Thinkpad
pros
Thinkpad can be used for 20 hours a day
Its business laptops so must be durable
Wont get heated over hours of usage
Since these are imported from US, it must be of good price
cons
no accidentale damage cover

didnt choose dell because
there was a price hike in dell recently
gets heated after hours of usage.
inspiron is consumer laptop and lattidude is very costly

Nice. Happy to see someone making right choice after reading different posts smile

Most of them were against the deal. Few were to support ! I am sure that you will be happy for choosing the right product (in coming months/years) !

Happy Computing ! smile
