Fantastic Laptop, But i got it for 29k, SAVE MONEY buy AMD!!.
04 Mar 2014 By Mohith Sharma On flipkart.com

About me:- I have previously used a HP and Dell laptop, this is my first Lenovo Laptop.nnAbout Lenovo:-nThey are the largest PC manufacturing company in the entire Planet Earth.nThey have acquired the hardware division of IBM.nnOther best option:- nDell inspiron 15 3521nnPros:-na)Original Windows 8, Free upgrade to 8.1 and after the 8.1 update Start up time from shutdown is 10seconds!! Iam not joking.nb)1TB hard disc space.nc)1Gb graphicsnd) Dolby speakers, pretty loud and the effects are goodne) Non glossy design of laptop, All black nf) Full island chicklet type Spill proof keyboardng) 2usb 3.0, 1 usb 2.0, hdmi, bluetooth 4.0 & Optical drive.nh) large air vent, super cool, unlike HP, Dell, etc.nnCons:-na) Heavy if compared with other co's laptopnb) web cam is averagenc) Due to matte finish its prone to finger print.nd) Glossy display, would have loved it if it was a matte one.nnSmall review:-nThe initial boot takes time after the windows 8 youcan updateto the 8.1 from the microsoft store the file size is 3.6gb.nnThe start up time measured using a stop watch is 10.5seconds, which is awesome.nnI compared this A4 5000 processor with the i3 3rd gen from a processor comparing site, and A4 Quadcore is slightly better than i3 in some case and vice versa. But i didnt want to pay extra for intel, cause i have a desktop with Amd processor and its working fine for more than 5 years,so i trust AMD.nnI don't play games on laptop, cause i have xbox, but i played Counter strike source, NFS most wanted (old) and cricket 07, all worked in high settings.nnFor basic users this laptop is more than enough, i generally use it for browsing, movies, documents and basic stuffs.nnIt has a 6cell battery which easily provides backup above 4 hours, though i didnt test it, Ill test and update soon.nnLENOVO has pre installed energy management software which is excellent as it has 3 modes from which you can choose, wich alters te processor and other settings to save battery.nnThere is no longer need to press Function key and then perform functions like volume, brightness, Cause directly it works.nnThe dolby speakers are very loud, louder than the dell SRS.nnThe laptop runs very cool and quiet.nnThats about it, I guess i have covered everything. Dont worry, the laptop is a good performer,and windows 8 is not so bad if you get used to it. If any thing goes wrong with the laptop there is a one key recovery system.nnI Have compared this laptop with my Friends i5 2nd gen Dell Inspiron 15r, and it performs all basic stuffs faster or at same time and this laptop is cheaper by 10000rs.nnThank you.

decent enough but highly deceptive
04 May 2014 By Ranjith Arun On flipkart.com

this laptop is NOT for above average users;nAMD's cheat tag is that its a quad core clocked at a constant speed. [ONLY 1.5 GHz]. NO OVERCLOCKING! [NOT 1.5GHz x 4 cores]nnhowever it is enough for daily uses.nnthe speakers are fine, Less Heat emmission, GREAT battery backup, NIce KeypadnnA bit heavy :-/ overall its a fine lappy with lags now and then.
