Hi Prashant,

     Sorry for the delayed response.
Cost of G550 was 32 K with Bag pack and and USB Keyboard, Mouse ( Not 
soo good, I replaced it with Logitech ). It also come with Windows 7 HP 
OEM. (now running dual boot with win7 / ubuntu 10.04 32 bit )

G560 (i3) was also 32 K but without Windows 7 ( Now running Ubuntu 10.04 
64 bit ). There is a minor problem I found with this as when I plug in 
headphone Jack, Laptop sound does not gets muted. I did not tried to 
find a solution for it yet.

Prices vary every day, So you may get better deal with those now. :)

I purchased all three from DCC.


Thanks and regards,
Mithun
