Overall: I purchased this laptop about 2 weeks ago and I have spent sometime with it to write a review. Firstly I would like to thank flipkart for their very prompt services. I needed the laptop ASAP and I forwarded my request to flipkart. You will not believe me but the order was delivered to me in perfect condition the very next day. I was delighted and I would like to congratulate flipkart on such prompt services.
And now coming to the real deal...
This is an amazing laptop for it's price and the offers that one can avail during diwali season.
To start with, the laptop screams PREMIUM !! From smooth glass silky finish to the curves to the fine edges and to the engraved Beats Audio logo. You see it with your own pair of eyes and feel it with your own hands and you will be able to relate to what I just mentioned.
It is very light and sleek making it very portable and stylish to carry by hand which is something very important for me because I'm always on the go and my laptop goes wherever I go. What even adds further to the style quotient is the back lit keyboard, it surely looks so damn good in the dark and it is as useful if I may add.
Another really cool thing about this machine is that it's always so COOL... it barely heats up at all. It doesn't even make any noise at all.. I guess its the difference between an Ivy bridge and a Haswell...
Now I shall come to the audio department... Beats Audio is amazing ... Believe the hype. It has 2 speakers above the keyboard and 2 below with amplifiers and sub woofers... Yes!! you read that right... I played some dubstep(although I'm not a fan) and the sound quality exceeded expectations... It is loud but crisp and the bass drops gave me goosebumps !!
Now since it clearly says that this laptop is ideal for gaming purposes, well let me just fill you in on that. I have some of the most latest games like Battlefield 4, Arkham Origin and Crysis 3 installed on this laptop and well I was more than satisfied by its performance. Arkham origins had no lags at ultra high settings, Battlefield 4 and Crysis 3 were very smooth as well. Well the Nvidia GeForce Gt 740m is definitely a very good card for a laptop. I even tried playing these games without the laptop being on charge and there was barely any drop in performance !!
I somehow feel that the display of the machine could have been better but I'm more than happy with what I got in the contrary... :) :)
And yes yes yes.... buy this laptop from here or anywhere, you will get a HP laptop backpack and a really nice looking HP USB external optical drive (DVD-RW)
To sum it up, its the best decision that I made and another good decision was by buying it from here...
All those who are interested in buying this laptop, stop thinking and just order it ... Its a very good laptop !!
