Overall User Rating (4 Out of 5 based on 88 ratings)
Overall: Series 3 laptop with Win8, Lowest price among the offerings. First hand experience. Laptop feels & looks good.
Screen - Average 15.6" Wide screen with HD configuration with viewing angle issue.
Keyboard - Keys are soft & nice. Durability can be issue after long usage. Has numeric pad.
Touchpad - Sensitive enough.
Processor - 2nd Gen Ci3 - Works well. But with 2 GB lags with certain apps.
Connectivity - I could not find hard buttons for Wi-Fi on /off. All 3 USB ports are 2.0. Bluetooth, HDMI, VGA, LAN, is present. Except LAN, have not tried other options.
Win8 - Very good layout, futuristic. While using mouse, moving between app & windows you have to run pillar to post. I mean moving to corner of screen to interact with windows. This will be a disadvantage with big screen. Even with touch tablets this will be an issue. Very fast response while moving between app and windows. In desktop mode, start menu is missing, that makes this mode redundant. Learned with 8.1 upgrade this is solved. Have to wait & see.
hardware - Good. Additional ram will improve performance.
OS - Best
Price- Best ( I got it at 26.5k. Before price revision for Dollar change).
5 stars for OS & Price. 4 stars for hardware.
