Low budget laptop with Dual Core Processor
Overall User Rating (4 Out of 5 based on 195 ratings)
Overall: I bought it for my grandfather, for mostly accounting work using Tally ERP.
Since i did all the installation of OS and all, i did get a chance to test the system.
The system performs well, is fast enough for a normal user/ms office and other tasks.
BR movies play smoothly in VLC.
For all the programmers out there, this is a boon. A 15.6" under 19000 (i bought it in 18450).
I installed Visual Studio 2012 and along with that, SQL Management Studio, and run them simultaneously. Since these two softwares are huge as far as memory and processing is concerned, the system showed a decent performance. In short, i did not have to wait while building the projects in VS2010.
If in case you need more multitasking, you can add another DDR3 RAM in the empty slot, and it would be a cheap yet powerful upgrade.
This comes with DOS, so you save about 5 grands for the OS. I installed Win 7 Ultimate........without spending that 5 grand......you know what i mean. ;)
If you don't do much gaming and extensive image or video editing, go for this one. It also comes with dedicated ATI graphics of approx 348 MB. So thats cool.
