Overall: Little discouraged about pricing , on 8th may'14 the price of laptop was 23990 now it has been changed to 22996 10th may'14, arrr little angry...Flipkart....why...me.... Received the product today, after 4-5 hours of R&D writing the review - Its really a good laptop for everyday usage, - installed windows 8.1 worked like charm - boot speed is real good (max 10 secs) - Loud enough speakers - Loved the keyboard style its smooth, along with keypad (smooth :D) - USB 3 port yoo... - Laptop is really cool, even after constant usage (its a good thing, if u r not laptop user FYI any laptop heats up like anything after an hour usage, specially bad if you're handling laptop on your thighs) - 4GB ram, 500GB hard disk is enough for us (for more get USB 3 external HD) - was being skeptical with 1.5 ghz core, but mind you windows 8.1 is working like charm, tried with opening 4-5 applications at once, didnt hanged up. (for normal users this is great but if u r using high performance applications, then it might not suit you) - loved the laptop charger, somewhere out of the box, very compact and unique (non heavy), cord is also long. - It has slim personality ;) Cons : - There was some issue in installing Windows 8.1, stating MBR and GPT stuff, after lot of search understood at boot change the Removable type media to normal removable media instead UEFI one. - Webcam quality is not upto the mark, it could be better. - due to some reason not able to control brightness of screen (its system control), even with manual intervention not changing (hmm need to research about it) - just 2 USB port... well i am tag multiple devises at once, so con for me, and yeah port are next to each other. - Lappy thrills like anything while reading / writing DVD RW, felt like earthquake to me :D - Asus factory provided DVD is inaccessible from my end, throwing some error of GPT again...arrr this GPT MBR, little tricky more research needed. - Battery backup 3 hours at present, found somewhere low. - I found it light, but my sibling told me this laptop is heavy, consider 2.5 kg of weight (normal for any laptops) not a big deal. overall i am satisfied, this would be my first home laptop, it could be recommended for purchase, but would say check u r requirements and compare it.
