Overall: OK guys,
first, the laptop is totally awesome. TOTALLY
second, i am a college student , a geek and surrounded with laptops of all makes and companies so i know what others provide.
those crying over windows xp support(32 bit or 64 bit ) ,plz wake up to the modern age and use vmware , it can run xp (both) with giving it 2 gb of ram in virtual machine with same hardware of apu and GPU EASILY( also xp cant support over 2.5gb ram, so theres no use of it on such high end memory system).
as for the hard disk, it is by western digital in my purchase ,(although i have heard that sometimes laptops have different company makes of hard drives and they differ in performance)but mine is working nice.
AND its way better than dell inspiron ones which crash in 3 months(i have seen every hard drive crash of the older inspirons , trust me, 4 to be precise , they were by hitachi or toshiba dont remember ).
comparing to the g6 2005ax , it is an even fight.
i use ramdisk(3gb) , virtual machines(2gb) , play heavy games, prototype 2 (shoots up to 2.2 gb of memory space ).
i can use 6gbs of ram , so i will , if u cant u dont need 6gb.
now to the hard disk space, vmware adds 50gb , each game(5gb setup, 5 gb install avg)make it 20 games and there goes 200gb
100 gb for software setups and windows setups and backups. 100 for your c drive and wham!!! goes the hdd of 500gb . no movies no songs :-( .
but if you dont play use such things except games the go for 2005ax . if you dont even play games then opt for a 30000 one, even 5000 will be a waste.
all my frnds have 500gb in laptops and they are all full in 6 months. if u dont store data ,only then u dont need 1tb.
as for the price ,2005ax comes for 31700 at infibeam only , not flipkart. they dont give backpack(not sure), no cod as the order is processed by some other supplier, their own supply costs 34000.
in nehru place , u wont find it cheap since the wholesale ones order the intel laptops only , and the bigger shops which have it sell at the same price.though i have read ppl blogs buying for 31500 in NP 4 months ago , couldnt find it at any dealer at that price.
so choose for yourself 2005 or 2010.
NOW comes the heating issue , yes it heats up during gaming.
but there isnt a laptop that doesnt heat during playing the same game. playing elder scrolls skyrim on it heats it just as much as a dell xps 15 (core i7 ) worth 85000rs(my roomies laptop).
the ideapad z570 and the dell inspiron 15r also heat up.
there is no exception .PPL saying heating issues havent played a game launched after 2007 on modern machines.
some even heat and crash .
MIne doesnt ,so its still better.
But the heating is noticeable on the left palm area (the only slight drawback). so if ur left hand is made of wax plz dont buy it.
but i have read about coolsense, making it much more unnoticeable. downloading that while writing the review.
10 degrees of temp drop it says.
also someone wrote that turbo is disabled in it, there is nothing of that sort , mine working fine. and besides if the processor model no is same , then nothing is different .ITS a processor not TANDOORI chicken whose recipes change.
the body is surprising good, after removing the protective films . they hide its beauty. but its a dust magnet ,or maybe its winter season static charge effect.
