Worst Ever
21 Jan 2016 By vivek Prabakaran On flipkart.com

I ordered this laptop in flipkart and paid Cash. But after 4 days which i have waited eagerly,they cancelled the order with no reasons.... They took 4 more days to return the amount.

Difficult to use
12 Jan 2016 By Avk On amazon.in

I bought the Ubuntu 12.04 version about 6 months ago.

The hardware is clunky and heavy. Finish is not great. Trackpad / mousepad are difficult and non-intuitive to use.

The factory installed Ubuntu image is custom built. The image is not available to general public. No installation CD ships with the product. If anything goes wrong and you have to reinstall the OS (as I had to do), the 12.04 image from Ubuntu does not work off the bat. It is a nightmare to install almost anything. Skype will not work on this system. You have to struggle to install Chrome browser.

Not recommended for anyone other than hardcore hobbyists (or sadists). Certainly not recommended for anyone (say non-techy, or people who are just getting into computers) who may be a casual user.
