Super Config with Super Heat
21 Jul 2013 By Balasubramaniam Ramasamy On flipkart.com

Guys,nnLet me put my experience very quickly.nnI have ordered considering this is the best configuration with best price. But believe me it generates heat like anything in the touch pad area.nnThough it has 1 year onsite (plus 2 years carry in) warranty, Lenovo people is not ready to visit though the service centre is just 2 km away.nnSo, I had to fight with FlipKart executives a lot, because they declined to replace. After so much of frustration, got the replacement.nnBut wait! it's not over yet. The heat still generates. This time FlipKart agreed to refund the money but they want JobSheet from Lenovo saying there's a heating issue.nnLenovo still not ready to come my home, so I had to carry in. They inspected and found they are is a chip which generates heat, but there's no ventilation given BY DESIGN. If you want to use, you can use with a cooling pad.nnWhat a hell!!! People is not ready to use laptop at all (instead go for tabs), in this generation I have to carry laptop and wherever I go, I have to carry cooling pad too???nnI am using two-DELL 6400 and one-E6430 (top end configuration like i7, SSD, etc) for the last 4 years so I know what's tolerable heat!nnSo, I am going to initiate the return of the replaced the laptop too!!!nnLenovo's new design and FlipKart's new attitude messed me up!

Reviewing the G500s...
02 Jul 2013 By Kushal Yagnik On flipkart.com

As someone said earlier, the specs look pretty attractive; but are they really upto the mark??nFirst of all, I didn't buy this system; but my friend has bought this from a local retailer...nNow, making it short, here are the PROs and CONs:nn--- PROs ---n1. CPU_3rd Gen_i5 (Smooth and well-perfomer at multi-tasking)n2. B75 Express Chipset ( Business class Chipset with Intel Anti-Theft Technology in BIOS)n3. 8 GiB RAM ( with one unused slot, to count )n4. 1 TB HDD ( 5400 rpm is slower as it is less power-consuming )n5. DOLBY Audio Enhancern6. 3 Years Warranty ( Lenovo Service centers are easily available)n7. The PRICE TAG (40k bucks are good deal for gaming systems)nn--- CONs---n1. B75 chipset cannot be overclocked ( A drawback for hardcore gamers, who actually know about OverClocking )n2. Free DOS ( Which means NO RECOVERY DRIVE from the manufacturer, in the cases when u need to factory reset! nThis is a major disadvantage, although most people don't know it and say that Free DOS can be customized any way u want !!! )n3. HD LED Display ( I doubt if it's LED, poor colour output, no enhancement options for the RGB mixture; also the view-angles and sunlight readability is bad)n4. Nvidia GT 720M ( It is based on the same old Fermi architecture and almost similar to GT 635M GPU and does not support SLI. To say in some familiar words, I had around 18-22 fps while playing Battlefield 3 or MoH-Warfighter at high settings and was irritated while playing Crysis 3 at high settings...irritated due to bloody 13 fps max.) :OnI included this in CONs because I think they could have provided a GT 630M instead and with about 2k bucks reduced!! n5. Poor Mousepad/Pointing Device ( Low sensitivity )nnBesides these the Design of system looks very common ( just too much of simplicity ), the texture finish and keyboard are however attractive and fun to play with.nnThe final decision has to be yours ofcourse, but I would suggest you to go for an ASUS K55 series system which has similar specs; yet greater performance.nnAnd for your guidance, know that the motherboards and graphic-cards/GPUs are developed by ASUS and used by companies such as DELL, HP, Samsung. etc..except ALIENWARE ofc ) :Pnn**Not all the models of K55 series are shown on Flippy or on Asus website, so better to consult a local retailer**
