confused about buying... :|
So after deciding that i am going to buy a laptop for my CSE classes i am confused what should i do.My budget is 50kish.I currently have a pretty outdated desktop.I can either buy a laptop with the whole amount.Or I can buy a cheaper(~35k) laptop and upgrade my GPU,RAM.Check my gadget and let me know your suggestion.---------- Post added at 16:23 ---------- Previous post was at 16:19 ----------My main concern is gaming with the laptop.My pc is already too old to do that without an upgrade.And i dont see much option within my budget with a good enough GPU.I will be very much happy to run latest games at mid settings.

Forget about gaming on your laptop, rather save the money and buy a laptop that is capable of doing your CSE projects and spend the money on your Desktop.
If you want to upgrade PC and buy laptop both then you have to leave gaming coz on a 35K laptop I don't think gaming experience will be near good. Not even with a 50K laptop. And also gaming with laptop is never a good idea. I suggest better use whole 50K to upgrade your PC, which will provide assistance with your study as well as gaming. Obviously you can get better technologies if you upgrade PC with that money instead of buying a laptop, only flaw here is that you are not getting backup as a laptop is able to do which is / should be the main reason for some1 to buy laptop.
Well it depends.You might face some circumstances where u will feel the necessity of a laptop in ur study life,Like last time editing of a particular project,graph drawing in prctical classes,showing ur projects to the teachers etc etc...
But i will suggest u to upgrade ur dextop and ya it is from a gamers point of view.U can do all ur stuay rleted work with that as well as u can play the latest games too.
You forgot our power conditions
, no gaming is possible with power going bye bye every hour.
You end up being more frustrated than having 'fun'.
I actually need a laptop and in this reason with the amount of load shedding its a must for my studies.So i have to buy one.What I am confused about is wheather I should buy a laptop only or get a cheap one and also upgrade my pc.
^Don't go in that route.U will be ended up with nothing.Either buy this or buy that.....
That frustration is better than gaming with a lappy lol...
Nope, it's not. Been there, done that. Low Res Gaming > No gaming at all.
So you mean I should with the laptop+desktop?

b,spend 30 ish desktop now,with intent to upgrade in 1 yr.
ram 4gb 2k
gpu ati 6670 1 gb ddr5 7k
casing and psu-3k
so 53k will give you both a relatively good notebook for study and a good desktop which u can really game.
U've made my day. I'm still laughing.....

You'll get a powerful laptop, and a means for playing games easily.

so i suggest to buy laptop at 25k
and then buy a c2q processor and 6670. you already got the g31,it will be very good for low resolution gaming
Don't know about the price, but they should be launched officially in June. Though AMD APU laptops in BD(good ones) are a rare scene, though the 1st thing that comes to mind when these two words are used laptop+gaming = APU, hands down!

This appears to come with:
- 4 2.3Ghz Piledriver cores with 3.2Ghz turbo core on 2 cores
- Radeon HD 7660G DUAL GRAPHICS with HD 7670M (better than desktop GTS 450 performance!)
- DDR3-1600 (good, I consider this a must with all A6+ Trinity laptops or desktops - the A10 should've probably come with an 1866 kit), 8GB of it
- 1TB HDD (nice for a laptop!)
- 64-bit Windows 7
- 6-cell battery (all-day battery life ftw)
Scrumptious ain't it?
Just imagine... a notebook with netbook-class 10hr battery life (running netbook basic tasks... but you can still game and edit video like a boss!), comfortable 15.6" form factor, with the graphics horsepower of a desktop GTS 450 and four CPU cores, 8GB RAM, and a spacious 1TB HDD for under $800 buckaroonies. This kind of laptop at this price wasn't possible to get--I think---ever before!
Got even more confused now Anyway how much do a q2quad and hd 6670 cost these days?

look man.trinity is good but,with a i3 and dedicated graphics like 6670 you'll gain much in the overall factor,
apu will be good at certain extend but not good in the long run.
i had a apu 3670k which was good but not as gaming friendly amd wants you to believe.
Everything depends on how much horse power you need. If a 30~35k laptop is capable of handling your projects then buy a laptop and do a pc upgrade. On the other hand if these cheap laptops aren't good enough then buy a 50k laptop or wait for trinity apus.
