Awesome laptop. Best in class.

Overall: I bought this laptop on 20/2/2016 from a local store.
Some facts about this laptop are:
1. RAM...flipkart doesn't mention about any expandable ram, but this model actually has 4 gb ram, expandable upto 16 gb. There is one 4 gb ram stick, another unused slot...making a total of 2 slots. RAM frequency is 1600 mHz.
2. Battery life's 3.5 hrs on average, which is OK for a gaming laptop. I haven't personally tested this though, the shopkeeper told me.
3. Works best with Windows 10, processor is rumored to have driver compatibility problems with windows 8.1. However, I think that this might be false, and the latop would work fine with 8.1 64 bit OS.
4. Has a type C usb 3.1 port...which is a future tech thing. Applications for this is rare but being developed.
5. Asus has a 2 years warranty on this model instead of the 1 year that flipkart has mentioned, a wrong specification by flipkart. ADP, however, is not covered.
1. Great configuration at this price...i5 6200u along with a beastly 2 gb 930m nvidia gpu. There's also a 2 gb intel 520 integrated gpu for low graphics intensive work.
2. Display: Superb matte black finish anti-reflective screen. It isn't the glossy screen type and doesn't reflect under sunlight. Its very friendly for your eyes. Oh, and this doesn't affect the HD display, color production is good.
3.Doesn't heat up excessively while playing heavy games....gaming performance will be mentioned later.
1. Display's HD instead of full HD, but that's to be expected at this price.
2. Keyboard's not backlit :( . Also, no indicators for caps lock, num lock etc.
3. Glossy lid, which, while looks great...is a fingerprint magnet.
The cons really are minor compared to the pros.
I have used this for just 1 day..so I haven't been able to test out latest games yet. So far, this beast is able to run Witcher 2, Far Cry 4 and Dragon's Dogma at the highest possible settings very smoothly. I'll update gaming review later.
