    Budget 90k+ Need a build for heavy multitasking that can drive up to four 4k monitors for work only

    What is your budget? Flexible. 1.5L+ without monitors. Of course I want to avoid unnecessary spending, but I see this as an investment in my work and hope it will last many years. What is your existing hardware configuration (component name - component brand and model) I have nothing :(...

    Budget 71-90K [Budget 50k-1L] Need a programming laptop with FHD display

    I need a new programming laptop. I have a broad budget as I'm not sure if what I need can be obtained in a lower price, though I'm willing to spend up to 1L on it if needed. The laptop will run Linux and will be used exclusively for programming and browsing. No gaming, really. Lots of...

    Can I have both wired and wireless connections at the same time with a TP-Link TD-W8968

    I'm planning to get a modem+router for home. Namely a TP-Link TD-W8968, if that's a good choice. I have a desktop PC and a laptop (and a couple of android phones). It would be nice if all these can share an internet connection. So is it possible to use both a wired and wireless connection at the...

    Getting only half speed on MTNL Delhi 1MBPS plan?

    I just got an MTNL Delhi 1MBPS connection last week. I did the modem configuration stuff myself (by following some blog post... actually everything was automatic... I just set the VPI/VCI thing) since the technician had no clue how to set things up in Linux. But my speed has been consistently...

    Can I get some recommendations for good women's perfumes?

    I want to get some perfumes for my mom for her birthday. She's not super picky... far from it actually. I want some recommendations for ladies' perfumes that are long lasting and not ridiculously expensive (eg. 5k+ per bottle). I am planning to buy online due to time constraints. Should I be...

    Does anyone have a list of nice quiet places to sit and work/research in Delhi?

    Sitting at CCD and similar cafes works, but there are sometimes random bursts of distractions. The only place I can think of are the various branches of the Delhi Public Library. I've never been to one of those, so I don't know if they allow you to sit there for 5-6 hours with your laptop. I...

    WiFi Router around 2k - Is N13 still the best option?

    Ok, so before last week, I had zero knowledge of anything related to routers. After a few days of scanning these forums, it seems the N13 is popularly recommended. I've also read that the N13 is a bit old now. And all the recent reviews for it on Flipkart seem negative for some reason. I don't...

    PC Peripherals Is it worth getting a Belkin surge protector vs a local one?

    I'm planning to get a 4-socket Belkin surge protector. Flipkart seems the cheapest at Rs. 600. Is it worth getting a Belkin? How would it compare against some cheaper local alternatives? Btw, is 600 fair for a 4-socket surge protector? Have you guys found it cheaper anywhere in your experience?

    Is there any India-based forum for programmers out there?

    The first time I found about TE and TDF, it was like a godsend. They became my go-to places for learning about hardware-related stuff and India-specific hardware news. It suddenly felt weird that I was using the Internet for quite some time, but only found out about these forums in like 2009...

    Anyone have experience with induction cooktops?

    So I recently got to know about these things and they sound kinda nice for some quick milk-boiling and some light food preparation. (Of course, the downside being the dependence on constant-electricity-flow). I have my eyes on this seemingly cheap one from flipkart which has generally positive...

    Any footwear fanatics here?

    I dunno if this is a weird question, but I was wondering if there are any super-awesome deals for sport/casual shoes online that I ought to know about. I've never bought shoes online before, but from what I've read, myntra.com is good for this? My budget is around Rs. 1500. So far, I've...

    SmartPhone Suggestion @ 17k

    The Neo V is the best Android phone at strict 17k (+- few hundred), right? I know that ebay has some 15.5k offers for it, but those are only with dealer warranty, so I'm not too comfortable. The best online option seems to be from adexmart for Rs. 16790 here. The only coupon I could find was...

    I sat on my phone and broke the display :(

    Okay... you're probably thinking it's a Galaxy S2 or some such, but it's just a puny Spice phone (M5161) that I bought for Rs. 2400 early this year. The phone is 'working'... I can receive calls, I can even dial and navigate menus.. but only through guessing, since nothing can be seen on the...
