Overall: Okay, so I was looking for a cheap laptop that has good battery life in which I could run Linux. So, I was eyeing on this one. But when I compared the price of this to the other countries, then I was freaked out.
The Chromebook costs $199 in the USA which is about Rs. 12,500. With custom duties it should be abou Rs. 15000 which is a good price. But why the hell are they selling it for Rs. 8000 more above that? They do the shipping in bulk so shipping costs are almost equal to nil.
Even Moto G which costs $199 in the USA, costs Rs. 14000 in India, so why can't acer manage the same? Why not?
This thing could have had been a lot better priced but only if these companies cared about customers rather than just making profit.
They just sell them for cheap in USA to expand their market and then come here in India to basically make it cost more.
Just for comparison this same thing costs $199 in USA and it costs $380 in India, almost the double.
Seriously, not worth that price. Price this at 15k - 16k then I will buy it. Any more than that, no!
The product is not bad, but this could have had been priced better, hence a 3 from my side, just for the power consumption and battery backup.
It is not Flipkart's fault in any way. It is Acer who is overpricing stuff, so blame Acer not Flipkart. Flipkart is and will remain the best online retailer in India and they are way better than the second best in that regard.
