Versatile laptop at reasonable price
Overall User Rating (3.9 Out of 5 based on 246 ratings)
Overall: I bought this laptop from Flipkart through WS Retail Seller. I am a doctor working in a teaching college so needed a laptop mostly for use for teaching and internet reading.nnHowever, this is what happened when I placed the order:nn1. I ordered for a silver laptop (graphic showed silver colour) but was delivered a BLACK laptop!! I complained to Flipkart about this the very next day n they said they would call back... However, the complaint was handled only after a period of about 9-10 days and during that time my work suffered as I did not know whether to use the laptop or not!!!nnFinally after 10 days, I decided to use the laptop, and when Flipkart called to offer to change the laptop, I took an apology token from then instead and sacrificed on my colour- silver.nn2. The product works fine, touch feature is great but the laptop has several drawbacks:nna. I CANNOT CONNECT THIS LAPTOP TO THE LCD PROJECTOR as it lacks the port reqd to connect the cable of the projector!!!! I have to now go for a converter device to insert that pin OR beg to other people to transfer my presentation onto theirs before my class!nn3. No optical drive (can't play DVD) which I knew before buying.nn4. The screen will not flip upside down when laptop is kept in flex mode. So viewing in tent mode is not possible for this model.nnRest is all fine. This laptop heats up much less than my previous Dell Inspiron machine which heated like a furnace! It is light and comfortable to slip inside backpack, good for travel. Scrolling documents is a bit of a trouble as the touchpad won't allow touch-scroll- you have to use both hands to scroll using touchpad (alternately u can use the arrow-down key). Battery life is pretty good, lasts 3-4 hrs comfortably with medium brightness. All in all, a good laptop for minimum or basic needs...however, I suggest u choose another one if your work involves projecting presentations from the laptop onto the big screen!nnOverall, I give 2.5/5 to WS Retail for delivering wrong colour, 2.5/5 to Flipkart for the delay in exchanging and 2.5/5 to Lenovo Flex-2 14 D for not being very compatible with my teaching function.
