But many details are missing. I am not sure if the laptop has in-built WLAN capability, though Centrino technology based laptops have WLAN. The ports available are not clear, as there is no mention of RJ-45(LAN), RJ-11(Modem), IEEE 1394 (Firewire) ports. The laptop also doesn’t have CD-RW capability. Some things are not clear, will update once I have enough information.

UPDATE: Received some answers…
“…Dear Sir,

The answer to your queries are as follows

1. As you have rightly mentioned, centrino comes default with Wireless connectivity. Sorry, that it is not mentioned in the proposal. The IBM ThinkPad which we are offering comes with wireless connectivity

2. Yes, the system comes with RJ45 , RJ 11 only. It does not have IEEE 1394 Firewire ports

3. The Laptop comes with default DVD ROM Drive. there is an option for upgrade from DVD to DVD-CDRW. The additional cost will be Rs. 4600.00…”

So, if you include a CD-RW capabilities by paying additional Rs.4600, the laptop will be a complete one and I think is worth the deal..Decide for yourself..
