    Overall: Latest gen i3 processor & Windows OS. Boots in 3 secs & shuts down in 2 sec flat!! The 1600Mhz RAM just adds to this speed. The hard disk is standard WD stuff, always reliable.nThe audio is really good, fine tuned. Also the USB 3.0 port is nice bonus.nThe camera is bad, must be the ordinary VGA cam. But I don't think anyone will buy for the cam! The battery is also small, just 4 cell, but it should last long as 4th gen i3 uses very little power. Nothing special with the display & the usual intel onboard gpu won't go far with games. But then for this price range, its not supposed to be a gaming laptop!nHeat generated while using is quite less. Can be placed directly on the lap. Its light weight too especially compared to the VAIO that I own.
