    Overall: Being a student i didnt had much to spend and i followed the formula "If u have 5 rupees buy something that costs less than that", and i ended up with this one for 18900 at a local store.
    These are some things i noticed:
    1-By the looks of it, no one gonna believe it is a 19k Notebook.(Provided he never seen one like this before).
    2-Processor's safety feature shuts down windows explorer if it reaches a certain temperature.
    3-1080p videos run smooth.
    4-It has got an inbuilt graphics card of 774MB(Celeron being an APU).
    5-Good for programming and stuff(only the processing speed after you run the program takes 10-15 sec more(depending on the length of the program) than an 3rd gen i5 processor(Desktop).
    6-Photoshop CS3 runs smooth.
    7-You actually can run all games on it!(Though most games after 2008-09 are unplayable).
    8-Can run games upto 2008-09 pretty smooth.
    9-I am playing assassin creed 3 and far cry 3 at 1024*768 (not so smooth but i manage).
    10-I get battery backup for nearlly 4 hrs and15 mins while programming and 3 hrs 10 mins while gaming(1024*768) and 2 hrs 50mins watching 1080p movies.
    11-2gb 1600MHz RAM.
    12-Very slim cause it doesnot have a DVD drive(fools some people in believing it as a ultrabook).
    13-WEI rating:
    Processor:- 5.8
    Gaming Graphics:-6.1
    Hard DIsk:-5.9
    14-ASUS says CPU speed is 1.8GHz(1800MHz) but in CPU-Z, Single core speed is 1198.41 MHz.

    1-The key board feels plastic and very cheap(In my case, spacebar not working properly, need to press it harder).It is awful.
    2-Only 1 USB 2.0 port and 1 USB 3.0 port.(Causes serious problems if you want to play games online or at the time of designing while using internet at the same time.
    3-Once installed NFS RUN on it and played for 5-6 mins and when i touch near the air vents it was nearly 100 degrees O_o. Surprisingly when playing AC3 and Farcry3 it doesnot gets heated much
    4-Don't be fooled by the Altec Lansing Speakers(Like Me). It is under the laptop and sound quality is awful even in maximum volume.(Headphones solves this though).
    5-Only 1 RAM slot, so if you want to upgrade it to 4 GB need to remove that and put a new ram with 11-11-11-28 CAS Latency 1600MHz which costs nearly 3k(Talking about GSkill RAMs).
    6-Viewing Angle is bad, even when you are infront of it.
