Being a student i didnt had much to spend and i followed the formula "If u have 5 rupees buy something that costs less than that", and i ended up with this one for 18900 at a local store.nThese are some things i noticed:nPROS:n1-By the looks of it, no one gonna believe it is a 19k Notebook.(Provided he never seen one like this before).n2-Processor's safety feature shuts down windows explorer if it reaches a certain temperature.n3-1080p videos run smooth.n4-It has got an inbuilt graphics card of 774MB(Celeron being an APU).n5-Good for programming and stuff(only the processing speed after you run the program takes 10-15 sec more(depending on the length of the program) than an 3rd gen i5 processor(Desktop).n6-Photoshop CS3 runs smooth.n7-You actually can run all games on it!(Though most games after 2008-09 are unplayable).n8-Can run games upto 2008-09 pretty smooth.n9-I am playing assassin creed 3 and far cry 3 at 1024*768 (not so smooth but i manage).n10-I get battery backup for nearlly 4 hrs and15 mins while programming and 3 hrs 10 mins while gaming(1024*768) and 2 hrs 50mins watching 1080p movies.n11-2gb 1600MHz RAM. n12-Very slim cause it doesnot have a DVD drive(fools some people in believing it as a ultrabook).n13-WEI rating:nProcessor:- 5.8nRAM:-5.5(2gb)nGraphics-:4.4nGaming Graphics:-6.1nHard DIsk:-5.9n14-ASUS says CPU speed is 1.8GHz(1800MHz) but in CPU-Z, Single core speed is 1198.41 MHz.nnCONS:n1-The key board feels plastic and very cheap(In my case, spacebar not working properly, need to press it harder).It is awful.n2-Only 1 USB 2.0 port and 1 USB 3.0 port.(Causes serious problems if you want to play games online or at the time of designing while using internet at the same time.n3-Once installed NFS RUN on it and played for 5-6 mins and when i touch near the air vents it was nearly 100 degrees O_o. Surprisingly when playing AC3 and Farcry3 it doesnot gets heated muchn4-Don't be fooled by the Altec Lansing Speakers(Like Me). It is under the laptop and sound quality is awful even in maximum volume.(Headphones solves this though).n5-Only 1 RAM slot, so if you want to upgrade it to 4 GB need to remove that and put a new ram with 11-11-11-28 CAS Latency 1600MHz which costs nearly 3k(Talking about GSkill RAMs).n6-Viewing Angle is bad, even when you are infront of it.nnOVERALL PRETTY GOOD FOR ROUGH USE.
