    Overall: I bought this lap from Ritchie street Chennai last week at 24k ! Inside the box :- User Guides and Manuals, AC Adapter, 15 months McAfee antivirus CD, with Operating System Ubuntu One. About my lap ! It will be the cheap and best lap you get from dell for daily use. Major features!... The quality of dell that stand first, most of the lap under 26k are normally poor quality, in this case its dell, Its high quality body give it a Contemporary look which have black matte finish, textured lid and large palmrest. Processor Pentium Dual Core (2nd Generation), Variant 997, As if now i don't feel any speed issue, most of my software and games are working well with my 2 GB DDR3 Ram, and 500 GB hard. Keyboard Its have a Standard Keyboard which is too nice and perfect for my job ! V - good Touch-pad. Good Audio ! DVD writer with Dual Layer Support Ports Two USB 3.0, Two USB 2.0, HDMI 1.4, RJ45 Ethernet ports, card reader, and Headphone port.ports are working perfectly. Most important feature Power If the battery is in fully charged - Am getting Battery Backup Almost more than 6 hr if i adjust my display, and working normally ! Without adjusting and play video and game it will long up to 5.15 hours max. In ubuntu It will be more than 5.20 hours with adjusting, Without adjusting less than 5 hr It will take almost 3.30 hr to get full charge from 10% to 100 % some con.... The Stereo Speakers are placed below . (But i don't care) Ram 2GB and 1 Unused Slot (Hmmm????? ) Dell have only 1 year warranty, and their extendable warranty cost too high ! (if its running without any prob. am lucky) This lap is a basic model of dell and its condition is suitable for some normal day-today works, so its not a multitask lap with many feature or a gaming material ! According to me its a profitable gadget and money which i spend is really cheap and so if you are looking for a cheap Dell lap ill recommend this !
