Overall: Please read this!! This laptop is the jack of all trades but buyer must do some minor adjustments to keep cons down.. Heating Issue: Even though this lappy has 4th Generation i7 processor, it heats up and the issue is not sorted out. Reviewers say that Processor is in a loop of continuous high power usage. BIOS updates are also unable to keep this issue down and so BEST solution for heating issue is by reducing the upper limit of the processor usage. This might sound weird but as this processor has turbo boost, it will pick up only when needed and rest of times it wont go beyond the needed processing power. To do this, goto Power options, advanced setting where you can see the list of hardware controls. Here, click on Processor and reduce the upper limit from 100 to 78-80%. Touchpad issue: This laptop has a touchpad which is completely next generation one, but users must understand first how it can be used. We being mouse users are used to left-click, right-click and scrolling. This touchpad and the touchscreen has capability of reading 10 finger touches at a time. So, think of possibilities here with these 10 finger touches. Even though this touchpad has buttons underneath it, clicking them is a hassle and that procedure must be forgotten in this laptop. In this touchpad, clicks are changed to tapping of fingers. For right-click, keep the cursor where you want to click and then tap on the touchpad with 2 fingers at once. This will do the right-clicking and you don't need to reach for a button with a thumb unlike old age laptops. Left-click can be done by a single tapping as most common with other laptops. Scrolling can be changed actually in Synaptcs touchapd settings. In the setting I enabled 2-finger scrolling. By 2 finger scrolling enabled, you need to keep 2 fingers at once on the touchpad and move both up and down to scroll up and down. There are many more options like 4-finger touch/5 finger touch settings too as per your need. I recommend people buying this laptop must also buy 32GB USB 3.0 flash drive as there is no DVD option. DVD is old things guys, it is better to forget it when you have USB 3.0 which delivers easily 8-15 MB/second. This laptop is made on the similar hardware specification of MacBook. So, even though the laptop is shut down, 2 USB ports on each side of the laptops can be used to charge the phones using USB connector, which is a huge advantage for people with smartphone. The biggest advantage of this laptop is when I ran VMware and SAP server. RAM usage peaked upto 7.8 GB keeping the processor at 0.9 GHz without any hassle which is an awesome feature at this price. Its RAM is a killer and keeps calm without heating at any usage. So, this is much of a Business type of laptop and not more of gaming. Graphics is not upto mark as compared to other laptops but it can run many games above 50FPS easily. What bothered me is the GPU heating under the laptop. I recommend to use this laptop on a cooling pad when playing games to give more air for GPU or just raise the back of laptop for about 1 inch by a book for air to flow into middle vents underneath. REMEMBER: IF YOU SEE ANY PROBLEM ON THE LAPTOP FLIPKART WILL TAKE IT BACK WHEN YOU SHOW THE PROBLEM WHILE RETURNING. I GOT A GOOD ONE BUT ONE OF MY FRIEND GOT THIS WITH KEYBOARD PROBLEM. IN HIS LAPTOP KEYBOARD FINISH WAS NOT GOOD AND WHEN THE LEFT SIDE KEYS WERE PRESSED, ALONG WITH KEYS THE BASE OF KEYBOARD WAS ALSO GOING DOWN A LITTLE JUST LIKE CUSHION. HE JUST RETURNED AND RE-ORDERED IT.
