Overall: UPDATE[16/5/2014]: Surprisingly I got a call from a fellow customer who seems to have received the same DAMAGED Laptop that i had returned!! He described the exact damages on the laptop ( Swollen lid, deep cut on the right hand side ) and he got my number because apparently the seller/flipkart was careless enough to leave my old purchase invoice in the delivered package!! Just the idea of this is hilarious! Such unprofessional practices is very unexpected of a reputed online site and the sellers (E-HAAT) it associates itself with. Can i just say the tag "All products sold on Flipkart are brand new and 100% genuine" definitely cannot be trusted upon now.
And it is also clearly known that the color on this laptop fades away very quickly. Buyers, as inviting as the specs may sound, STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE.
After a lot of research and reviews from other buyers, I made up my mind to buy this laptop, Mainly because of the power the graphics card promises. Got the shipment within 5 days of ordering. But there was a defect with the laptop...the keyboard panel was not flat...it was slightly swollen on the left side near the spacebar. And the speakers cracked too. Called flipkart on the same day and they took it back for replacement promptly. The replacement product took a massive 6 days for them to ship from the seller and then another 2 days in transit. I kept calling them but everyone gave me the" Sir it will be shipped within 24 hours" crappy dialogue..for 5 days straight. Normally it wouldn't matter but i was leaving the city and needed to have that laptop before i went. They finally delivered it just before i left for the airport. And im sorry to say but the replacement laptop is damaged goods as well. It has 2 deep nicks on the right side as if the machine had been dropped onto something sharp. And the lid has a swollen bump on it, so much that you can press down on top of the lid and watch the plastic depress by a few mm!! Now that im out of town for more than 10 days i cannot get the laptop replaced as after 10 days the replacement policy expires. And that SUCKS!
Very disappointing seller "GADGETSNGIZMOS". And disappointing service by flipkart coz it seems that though they have a quick delivery process, they have no idea what to do if something goes wrong. And talk about bad quality control!
About the laptop...well if the malformations and damage were to be taken away i would say it could be a great product...the finish is brilliant...the chassis is slim and light..but at the same time it is delicate..take note if you're intending to get this for rough usage...and adding a matt-black anti reflective screen with a very capable graphics card sweetens the deal...all in all a very beautiful looking and yet also pretty capable package...it automatically switches between Intel and AMD graphics depending upon power source and application and you only notice the flicker while changing if you look very very closely. While on my dads lenovo the screen goes blank for a second for the same thing. The speakers aren't very impressive...it might change after a while of usage and breaking in..
4.5 Stars for the product (if you get the perfect one that is)
1 Star for the one I have to live with.
0 Stars for flipkart and its seller E-HAAT for taking me on a big anxiety trip and leaving me with a damaged REPLACEMENT product.
