I bought one in Feb 2005 because it was offered with pre-installed linux. The 
price was OK for features it offered, then. So far so good.

I  bought 3 years warranty and within 1.5 years, one of the RAM dimm went out 
and was left out with only 128MB RAM. I called the dealer from whom I bought 
the laptop/warranty and turned out that he has closed the shop. I went to HCL 
and the warranty turned out to be useless. I had to replace the RAM with my 
own money.

So if you are happy with the model, (specs. etc.) , buy it from HCL shop only. 
Don't go to a dealer.

Otherwise it is a reasonable laptop range.
