Overall: I am using this product for about a month or over. I would like to mention first that any laptop (Especially, Pentium lower ranges) will perform a lot better if you provide 4GB RAM. Now, PROS: 1) 3rd gen PDC, which in this price range is NOT available (3rd gen cpu are having better thermal usages, faster processors and better graphic advantages than 2nd Gen. So if you want to buy post Jul 13, at least buy 3rd Gen as the 4th Gen is already arriving and 2nd will be obsoleted by maximum a year). 2) DDR3 1600 MHz RAM, which you could not found in many other lap till 30K. Most of them provides 1333MHz. 3) Good screen size and resolution, display is better than HP laptop (I own a HP also). 4) Bigger Touch-pad for very ease of use. I haven't seen this much bigger touch-pad in this ranges laptop. 5) Presence of NUMPAD is a big advantage, especially to me who uses numeric keys at 20% times. 6) Speakers are reasonable and louder than usual, audible at quite places or headphone is best. 7) Icecool technology really works, I have used it 7 hrs at a stretch at no heating component I felt. CONS: 1) The biggest and may be a deal breaker that this has got ONLY ONE RAM SLOT. So, if you want too, you can't put an additional ram but you have to remove the stock one and put a whole 4GB again as new. (1 Star less for this one) Overall, it's a fantastic deal at 22K. Put a RAM and/or SSD if you want to make it a superfast laptop, otherwise, just deal with it since it's more than a VFM at 22K. Note: It won't provide any freebies or backpack, but that's ok when you saw the build quality. Also, the glossy surface/fingertip attraction seems no issue to people since I don't fancy it as tab or so. Thnx for reading, do research a lot before buying, no matter what model you are buying.
