Looking for a laptop

Dear lazyweb,

Looking for a laptop.

Configuration :-

Chip and Graphics chip :- AMD-ATI (5/6/7) 00 card

Memory :-  2 GB DDR2 (upgradable upto 4 GB)

Gigabit ethernet port

Wireless  :-  Atheros 6k-9k chipset

Budget :- Between 30-50,000 INR (inclusive of all)

I looked up the Dell Vostro lappies but all of them are Intel-based :(

Looking forward to comments and suggestions for the same.

Update 06/10/08 18:50 :- Forgot to add the caveat. No Windows anything, Free DOS or Ubuntu pre-loaded or nothing at all is also good.

Another Update 06/10/08 18:55 :-  I just had a telephonic conversation with somebody called Ravi Shankar, a Dell representative. Apparently, Dell is fully an Intel shop. The other shocking news was that the Dell Vitros which I had looked up, they don’t sell the same in India :(

Update 3 09/10/09 :- I tried getting a lappy couple of months back. This is what happened with me :(

The end result, the decision has been postphoned to next 6~12 months when USB 3.0 is out and can get more than 4 GB RAM without an issue. :(
