    Overall: Laptop is running good, but not satisfied with total product package delivered, window 8 is part of product, but not get window 8 cd or window 8 product key along with laptop, I dont get product key sticker on it, this makes it difficult for doing many updations. nSecond thing warranty issue is there , in system it is showing my warranty expire on june 2015, but I puchase in August 14, it must give me one year warranty full as it was mentioned during purchase.nI mail to flipkart, but get only one autogenerated mail till now. This is complete fraud of giving wrong commitment before purchase which doesnt match to final product.

    Overall: My experience with these laptops (bought 2 of them) has been terrible. DELL is cheating people and selling these bad quality / defective pieces for cheap. So much so, DELL does not even respond to customer service calls for these laptops.nnOne month old - One of the two laptops (service tag FHCN4Z1) has a defective touch pad, which DELL online service (Banglore) refused to help me with and asked me to go to the service centre in Lajpat Nagar (New Delhi), where i was forced to talk to an imbecile who had no idea about computers. DELL service centre also told me if the touchpad was defective, why did i not report it earlier and complain to flipkart - my fault that i unpacked a defective piece one month later after receiving it. None the less, warranty on paper is for 12 months!nnI had done a DELL diagnostic, which clearly showed / detected a defective Touch Pad, however, the SDAR report mentions "As per customer touchpad automatic gets stop working". The quality of english on the SDAR shows the quality after-sales of service DELL offers.nnPATHETIC ON PART OF DELL. AVOID THIS LAPTOP MODEL FOR SURE.
