Powerful package within budget

Overall: About the laptop: The product is totally worth the price. I received it in mint condition and on time. As many applications I needed were not supported by Ubuntu and the Ubuntu Touchpad drivers were pathetic, I installed Windows 7 64 bit on it and other performance tools. The battery life was excellent- 9 hours watching movies (Power Saver mode) and 6 hours playing games(Balanced mode). And with respect to the comment below about electric shocks - there are none; the build is quite sturdy too. One thing people should understand is that 2GB of Video Graphics in budget laptops is technically a scam. A game running at Ultra Graphics in a 1366x768 display will almost never need more than 1GB of VRAM. The other 1GB is just a way to milk more money out of us. But, as Flipkart was charging the same amountfor this particular product as its 1 GB counterpart, I decided to go for it. About my experience with Flipkart: Shocking. I purchased this during the festive New Year's week as they were offering a 10% cash-back on HDFC cards at that time. After I received it, I realized that it only had a 10 month warranty. They coolly told me not to worry and that it was the website which was showing it incorrectly. After protesting, they "attempted" to get the warranty updated with DELL. One and a half months later, they told me it was not possible and I asked for a replacement instead of the Rs.1000 they were offering me as settlement. The replacement was delivered on time but still had the same 10 month warranty. About 3 weeks , 7 emails and 15 calls later they have initiated the refund procedure (I will receive the money a week later, hopefully). I now understood that they were basically trying to clear out the old stock without giving the 12 month warranty that they had advertised on the website. This was technically a case of fraud. I will still continue to purchase from Flipkart but I think twice before I do so.
