  • Good 14" laptop for LAMP & Netbeans
    Raj Sharma on Flipkart.com | 01-09-2013

    I bought this machine to replace my E7300 core2duo and am please to note that B490 3rd generation CDC 1000M (1.8 GHz) marginally outperformed my PC (2.66 GHz). I installed Ubuntu 12.04 that recognized all subsystems (Reliance WCDMA, display, touchpad etc) out of box. Running at 60% brightness (comfortable viewing) and wi-fi/bluetooth off gave 5+ hours of battery time. Sound quality is decent and keyboard spacious and comfortable with good tactile response although would have preferred a bigger Enter key. Doesn't make any noise and runs cool enough to place in your lap for prolonged use. The pitch page stated it to have a 7200 RPM disk and three USB 2.0 ports. However, the disk is 5400 RPM and as a pleasant surprise it has a USB 3.0 port with two USB 2.0 ports. Windows users won't find any drivers CD so be prepared to download your drivers from Lenovo website. Flipkart delivery was good (3 days) and the seller Sterling Infoways provided free backpack. Overall, it is ideal budget machine to run your LAMP stack and Netbeans IDE on.

  • good lappy at effordable price
    Anil Kumar on Flipkart.com | 01-09-2013

    for those who want a handy laptop with good configuration within a price range of 19 to 21 thousand,this is one of the best picks. I have purchased this product from local lenovo shop. The following are my observations: 1. Screen is very bright and clear. Can see in direct sun light also. 2. Key board is very comfortable. 3. Sound system part of thing..... i felt like when i installed win XP i have got a bigger sound output than windows 7 or windows 8. Initially i installed win xp. Now i am using dual OS i.e., win 7 and win 8. 4.Battery backup is good. I got a batterry back up of around 3hrs when charged completely. I had played grid-2 game for 20 min, listened songs and worked on adobe pdf and word 2013 for an hour. May be if i havent played game i could have got another 40mins or so..... 5. The worst thing i observed is the top of laptop is catching up lot of finger prints. And as this is black coloured when we look in bright light these finger prints are looking like some patches on the body.....yaakh i hate this thing.Probably a skin installed on the laptop will clear this issue..... 6. I was afraid initially on the day i have purchased this lappy.CD ROM is making hell lot of sound.As if there is some loose part inside it. I ran to lenovo store and they said its common for couple of days......Now its fine...No sound.No frustrations. 7. Overall rating on this laptop....... i rate it 4.6 out of 5. 8. Lenovo could have done a bit better. with a OS out of the box. What ever may be the OS....... Hope this review helps few people. Regards, Anil.K
