I bought Dell Inspiron 15 few months ago and it's really a good computer, especially with uBuntu 10 loaded. I bought it from one of their retail stores and it cost me about INR. 35k. The laptop is really good considering that its usage is limited to document/image editing and internet browsing. It comes with Windows7 home edition which does the job very well.

I don't think you'll have to worry about the ports unless you want to use them for specific purpose. I'm happy with the 3 USB ports. The machine comes with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi module, which is very common for the modern laptops.

Before buying any laptop, the first question you should ask yourself is "What's the purpose of the machine?". If you want a gaming machine, you'll need more RAM and obviously a GPU. In my opinion, any HDD beyond 300 GB is more than sufficient (unless you want to load your computer with movies and songs, which I don't recommend). If you want a machine for programming and entertainment; any laptop with 2 GB ram is enough to do the job.

PS: If you want mobility, go with smaller screen sizes. Carrying a bulky laptop can sometimes be a pain in the a$$.
