Verdict

The HP 15-g009AX (G8D85PA) Notebook is a low range laptop for budgeters but is packed with a host of features which will leave you surprised. It is a great package for gamers and supports features like an 8X optical drive, a touchpad supporting 8 different gestures, a HD webcam and a massive hard disk. In order to account for the price, it has a mediocre processor and lacks any preloaded OS.

Great package within budget

14 Aug 2014 By Sayan Sarkar On flipkart.com

Bought this laptop from Flipkart at the end of the previous month. No one offers an AMD A8(6th Gen) with 2 GB of HD8570M graphics and 1 TB HDD at this price.Plus it is coupled with 512 mb of R5 graphics card integrated with the AMD A8. The performance is really great, no lags at all. But there were a few problems in beginning. 1. You have to download the drivers for the laptop from the HP website as this doesn't come with the driver's CD. As this product has launched very recently in India there are no drivers available for this model in the Hp website. So the HP representative had solved the buyers problem by pasting as link in their forum section for the drivers of this model. But actually the webpage directs you to the drivers for another HP model, HP 15-g030au Notebook PC which is actually an Australian model having AMD A8 clocked at 2.4ghz(overclocked) and has a 500 GB HDD. There are also a few other differences between the product available on flipkart and the one I mentioned above. I would recommend you to download the drivers of the model HP-g002AX which is the same model as the g009AX but only comes preinstalled with Win 8.1. 2. The next problem I came across was with the Realtek Ethernet driver. Even after downloading an installing the driver from the HP website my laptop couldn't identify the network connection. Then I found out that the latest Realtek driver that was given in website in the Internet drivers section was only an update from the previous version and wouldn't work unless you downloaded the older version of the same driver from the website. 3. Finally I found out that the AMD catalyst driver that was given in the drivers section couldn't identify my graphics card fully. It recognized it as an HD8500 series but couldn't exactly select the model. Moreover it couldn't also recognize the inbuilt R5 graphics card.It would case the hardware to not function normally. This is because the driver is an outdated version and cann't recognize the new hardware(AMD R5) which was released globally only this January. So download the beta driver from the AMD website and install it. But be sure not to overclock your processor as your warranty would get void then. Do so only if you feel like after your warranty period is over. IMPORTANT: People who are buying this HP laptop or has bought it must know that this laptop comes with HP Redemption offers! This is not mentioned in the FIipkart webpage don't know y! This laptop comes with One year free ADP (Accidental Damage Protection) from HP and an offer to extend damage protection at a subsidized rate. This is a limited period offer and valid only for customers who bought this laptop between 1st June-31 August.Please register your laptop to avail ADP. Google for "HP get ADP". Moreover there is also an HP back to college offer with this laptop where you can avail a FREE one year McAfee Internet Security 2014 and 90 days HP video book offer and many more. Google "HP back to college offer" I hope my review will be helpful for my fellow mates who are planning to buy the product or had bought it already and didn't knew about the driver snags and the Redemption offers.
