The biggest outcome of the race (and indeed the season) was undoubtedly the emergence of BMW as a solid "third team" that is pushing McLaren and Ferrari. The two giants can no longer relax in the face of this stiff competition being put by BMW...

Sad to see no RED on the podium (after a long time!).:new_let_it_all_out:

This is for the attention of people waiting for the fee refund. I had applied for the fee refund on 14th and received it today.

Once again I wish to thank koolbuddy and billi... for the constant support:bigups:

To all you guys joining NITIE, here is wishing you good luck for your course and life there-after...:cheers:

Called up the office today afternoon. I had sent my request for refund on 14th May. The accounts office guys told me that they have dispatched the cheque yesterday itself.

So, all you puys waiting for the refund can look forward to it in the next few days (assuming that you applied it the same time frame that I have)


Please PM me if anyone from bangalore is ineterested in buying Sony Vaio VGN-CR36G/B or Sony Vaio VGN-CR35G/L. Currently a dealer is ready to give 4% discount for bulk order. So the price after discount is Rs 52800. We can work out a better deal if there are more people.
Also they have a 0% finance scheme.

Puys, one word of caution before Sony Vaio...I have heard from quite a few of my friends / colleagues that the battery life is very very bad...Just a year into its life, my friend says he cannot use it for even an hour on the battery:shock:

So, do ask around before coming to a conclusion....the situation might have changed over the past year, but its better to confirm rather repent later....

Continuing this post...I had applied for the refund on 5th may. Today I called them up, they said it will take 2 more weeks :-(. There is waiting for long time.

Hi buddy,
I applied for a refund on 12th and called up the office on 15th. They asked me to call back on 26th (next Monday). But going by the answers some of you are getting, looks like a long wait for the refund.......:(

Charges - Rs 800 per person. This includes staying in a cottage( 5 people in one) , Lunch, evening Tea, Dinner and Breakfast. This is sponsored for 80 people. So it will be great if there are people who are ready to pay for themselves here since we are already touching 92 :shocked: :)

Hi Rohit,
If I could make a suggestion in this regard. The charges for the resort in excess of 80 people could be shared by all the puys present at the meet. Most of us visiting the meet have already been benefited from the generous folks at HP. So, its only fair that we spend "something" to be a part of the meet.

I am sure this would be a considerably small amount and lets not burden a few souls....let the extra cost not dissuade anyone

Though I have been a PG user for a long time now, I have never had the opportunity to interact with many of you at a personal level. This year however, PG has touched every aspect of my CAT preparation right upto the dreadful wait for the results.

So, I am definitely looking forward to be a part of the meet. I might feel a little lost because I don't know many personally:oops:, but I am sure I will come out with a lot of memories and friends....:hurray:

Looking forward to my first AIPGM...

Same here...let's be patient, after all we have waited for so long !! btw anybody in Bangalore has received it ?

Hi puys,
I called the admissions office in the morning. They told me that the mails have posted on Saturday, the 3rd of May. So, I guess we should receive it shortly.

Also, he clearly said we need not wait for the call letters to send in the DDs. We could (or probably should) send them in right away!

Hope the helps!

.........we shud ideally get the dvd so we can use/misuse it later......

I guess you have answered your question yourself! It is to prevent misuse.
But there is a way around. Since this is a public forum, it can't be mentioned here

Hey puys ! this maybe one of the silliest queries arnd.. but how does the Vista DVD come ? does it come along with the pack of laptop only ? or does it come later separately ?
P.S. I ordered Dell 1525
T8100, 2.1GHz, 4GB RAM, 250GB HDD, 3Yr accidental cover, Vista Home premium, Midnight Blue color..
complimentary 1.5yr Mcafee..

all for 52.5 k !

Hi buddy,
Good that you have gone in for 4 GB RAM, but please make sure you go for the 64 bit version of Vista. The 32 bit version will not be able to address more than 3 GB at all!!!! So you are unnecessarily paying for the extra 1 GB!!!:shocked:

The copy of Vista does not come in a DVD. There is an image of Vista in the "restore" partition that reinstalls Vista in case you need it.

Hope that helps!
