Overall: I have been using this since 4 days.
Great product for the price. And if you had got it during lightning deals, it is a steal!
The laptop comes with Ubuntu Installed. If you want to move to windows, install only Windows 8.1 64 bit.
With Windows 7 or 8, either the WiFi/Touchpad or both won't work.
Download all the drivers from Dell website.
Then install them according to the below list:
Everything should work fine.
Very good processor - Intel Core i5-4210U Processor
Doesn't overheat during normal usage
Battery Lasts for around 3.5 to 4 hours under normal usage
Decent screen with OK viewing angles
Dell laptops bought from Amazon.in are not eligible for Dell 2014 Diwali Offers.
A bit heavy (But normal in this class)
Touchpad freezes sometimes for 3-5 seconds for no reason
Speakers sound tiny
No Backlit keyboard
WiFi turn on-off switch doesn't work properly
Navigation arrow keys are cramped and are placed below Enter Key
Only one USB 3.0 port (other two are USB 2.0)
Although cons list looks a bit long, none are deal breaking. This is a very good laptop. I will update this if I find any other cons.
