    Overall: For the price tag of 37k, this laptop is really good. It's a little heavy probably because of the 1TB HDD. Performance wise it's decent, nothing spectacular as such. The graphics card has Nvidia Optimus technology(i.e it uses both a low performance built-in gpu and an nvidia gpu and switches between them on demand.) which is not fully supported by linux drivers. You are stuck with either built in gpu or nvidia one i.e there is no provision for on demand switching.

    1. Limited linux support for the gpu
    2. Low battery life on when running on Nvidia GPU.
    3. The screen is very glary(reflective) even at full brightness.

    An Intel 4th gen i5 processor makes this laptop a decent buy, though you may need to buy an anti-glare because of the glossy screen.
