I recently bought this laptop from flipkart and as usual the service from flipkart was top class. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of this laptop:- Pros: 1) Extremely good looks 2) Good Performance 3) Trusted brand Cons: 1) Pathetic keyboard. Keyboard is very fragile and wont last for more than a year. It is very difficult t use as sometimes key input does not to go the terminal even after pressing the key. Key board is also very hard. This laptop is complete no for those who spend most of time in typing or drawing diagrams. 2) Touch pad is really poor. Mouse is a must. Overall this laptop is good for college going kids or for people whose primary objective is to use it for multimedia purpose.
I bought the Laptop in a lenovo authorised Showroom. The Graphics Card is N15S-GT DDR3 4G ,, This is the 4GB DDR3 variant of GeForce GTX 850M. In this edition, the frame buffer was doubled to 4GB though this will not boost its performance and can be addressed as a gimmick - marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product. The performance will be same as a 2GB Graphics Card. And I Bought this laptop for Rs51000.
With 4GB Nvidia the laptop works like a beast (its not GTX but still GeForce 840M is good enough). The build is decent and silver color adds an elegant look to it. As mentioned by other reviewer this comes with a complimentary lenovo laptop bag. Also note that the box conatins no cd/dvd so dont panic. Laptop comes with a Lenovo drive partition that has all the drivers and softwares. Laptop performance is decent - high end games like Battlefield 3, GTA 4 and Mass Effect 3 works smoothly on high to ultra settings. Heat is negligible during normal use i.e. surfing, working etc. Battery backup is about 2 to 3 hours for normal use and 1 hrs for medium gaming. Can extend the RAM to 16GB total though thats an overkill. PROs: 1. Its cheap. Ya seriously...Look at prices of laptop with similar config. 2. Comes with Win8.1. If planning on gaming online then genuine windows is required so even-though free dos laptops(Asus) are cheaper, buying separate windows is not. 3. Laptop's make and build is good with responsive touch-pad and keyboard with numpad. 4. Good Nvidia GPU performance with 4GB dedicated DDR3 RAM. 5. Sound makes all the difference. Better than most of my past laptops. 6. 1 free slot in System Memory. So can extend RAM to 16GB. (check the freq and voltage before buying second RAM) 7. 1 year accidental damage protection. CONs: 1. Comes with Lenovo bloatwares that take hours to uninstall. Some like battery app, start menu app etc are good though. 2. Core-i5 is old compared to current pace of tech industry. 3. Power adapter pin is unusual. It is of rectangular plug type so most universal adapter wont work. 4. Headphone and mic 3.5mm socket is combined into one, like in smartphones. So if your old headphones have separate cable for mic and audio then it wont work. 5. Lenovo 2 years extended warranty has expired on 15 Aug.
I am very satisfied with this laptop. Also the Flipkart delivery was commendable. I had ordered on Friday evening and they delivered on Sunday morning in Bangalore. This is to note : - Flipkart has put an incorrect picture. This laptop, as mentioned in the specifications, comes in Silver. Flipkart ! please update the correct picture.It's very important to view the correct product. - It comes with a laptop bag, but Flipkart does not mention that. Flpkart, please add this info. It is better to be sure than to assume that a bag would come. - Flipkart is displaying 8 GB DDR3 (1.5V) RAM but it is 8 GB DDR3L (1.35V). This is not important to someone hoping to use the provided 8 GB only but if you are planning to add another 8 GB into the vacant slot which comes with this laptop then please buy a 4/8 GB DD3L 1600 MHz RAM. Flipkart, please update the specs on the site !! - The Laptop uses the Intel 4400 Graphics card coming as Integrated (upto) 2 GB RAM (shared from the default system RAM + the 4 GB Dedicated Nvidia 840M). We can configure the 4 GB for the games and anything we wish to offload from the regular CPU keeping it free from Graphics rendering. - Webcam is just O K .. not sharp :) as I would expect. But that's how it is in almost all laptops even in the higher segment ones. Best to hook and Logitech C270 or above for best results for Image clarity. - Sound is Good ! Better than most. Also the dual Microphones are very good. - Battery can give a tough competition to any brand with 4 cells. Easily surviving above ~5 hrs with moderate use. So definitely Good. (DDR3L RAM(s) with 1.35V a major contributor) - The built is sturdy and solid. - Also the touch pad is appropriately sensitive with many scrolling modes (multi-touch). - Laptop is noiseless and dissipates very less heat guess DDR3L RAM(s) as one of the primary reasons. Overall - I am Impressed. Have not come across any drawbacks yet. Will post if I stumble on any.
It has good graphics, intel processors 8gb ram Please tell me is this laptop available for extend warranty.
