Good laptop, could have been better

Overall: Overall the laptop is good. For general and office user, this laptop should be ideal. Ample amount of RAM and processing power. Good display, lightweight very handy. The battery backup looks very good, do not if this battery performance continue to be like this even after 2/3 years.
I am a programmer and heavily use the command line. I have installed Ubuntu 14.01, which is running fine. But one thing that making me crazy is the 'insert' key. The insert key, which is extremely useful who uses command line is clubbed with 'print screen' key! Actually I did not notice it for the last 3 days and thought HP had removed it. The key is extremely small and further smaller is the label 'ins' added as func+ key. This is not helpful for programmer like us.
Another negative point is the size of the keys, which are also relatively small. I am habituated with DELL laptop, so size of the keys are little problematic, specially the CTRL key. Many time I have search for the key, same for the up/down keys. Due to the size of the keys, the spacing of the keys also reduced leading to mis-typing and hitting of wrong key!
The touchpad response is good, but not excellent. Still I can live with it. Apart from the above mentioned issues, I think the laptop is good. So, a word of caution to users, who uses command line regularly. Please evaluate and then purchase.
Flipkart service is excellent, I needed this laptop urgently and used "in a day delivery" option, and they kept their promises. I still haven't checked with the warranty process, did not find any documentation inside the package.
