30 Jun 2015 By Rohan R On flipkart.com

Excellent budget laptop from Dell.nI'm using the Laptop for 1 year now (Bought it in July 2014). I'm a student so I use this Laptop daily for at-least 8 hours. It gives Solid performance with no Hardware issues. I'm running a dual boot system with Win 7 and Debian (Linux). Battery will easily last for about 5-6 hrs even with constant use and surfing. I've traveled in crowded buses,trains in Madras and even accidentally knocked the laptop at some edges while handling. I use the inbuilt HD cam and mic to chat quite regularly. Even use it for a little scientific computing and coding, it gives good performance without any lags.nIt's a must buy if you're looking for a budget laptop.nnThe only 'issues' I face are:n1) HDMI output only, no VGA out . n2) You have to use the inbuilt mic. There is no jack to connect external mic

VERY BAD SERVICE FROM FLIPKART
25 Jul 2016 By Flipkart Customer On flipkart.com
