good but not that great...not suittable for gamming3.5 starts for laptop n 0stars for flipkart cheating
01 Oct 2013 By abhishek dubey On flipkart.com

battery life is 5hr not 8hrs as mentioned 1.8ghz is not fast enough for gamming so not much use of 1gb graphic card the one which i got mrp was 33,950,(which after one month i discovered and i got in my wallet they even refused to refund in my bank and restricted it from redeeming it from ws retail) flipkart is charging more for "free" gifts.

Excellent Laptop for the essential jobs!!
06 Apr 2014 By Samrat Naskar On flipkart.com

Bought this Laptop on Holi Offer. Got an excellent deal of Rs. 31000, whereas the market price is around 36k. Totally worth the 31k price tag.I see that there are a lot of negative reviews about this laptop and many others, but just ignore them and trust only the seller "WS Retail" i.e Flipkart itself. People who are putting up bad reviews probably bought from any other seller. The Laptop came sealed with "Compuindia" stamp, which is the only authorised distributor in India [probably].The laptop is well equipped to handle all office jobs and also can smoothly run games, although I have not tested the latest games yet, but Burnout and NFS:HP (2010) runs smoothly. Battery backup is well above average too and doesn't generate a lot of heat as of yet. A word of caution though: Linux tends to heat up the laptop, rather any laptop, as there is no such driver to automatically optimize performance. Windows 7 and above is recommended to get the maximum optimized performance.
