Dealer : For some unknown reasons changing its name from Cstore to joyfulldeals to
Although the dealer says its a full hd ips display, but its not its a hd led backlit
lcd display with very good brightness.
Processor : Its more than enough for average users. But still not enough for users like
me who wants to do some simulation work.
GPU : Well its an old gpu but still very powerful. Better than 840m or atleast in no way
less than 840m.
Display : Already said about the display technology used. Its a very good display with
very good brightness and contrast. I have seen those hp displays and its a lot
better than those. You would not be disappointed.
Install proper latest nvidia drivers and you will see the difference.
Ports : No VGA port but an acer connecter port cable comes along with the laptop which
allows you to connect ur laptop to VGA.
Also there is a usb 3.0 port which is not mentioned here.
Design : almost 5mm slimmer that average laptops like lenovo z50-70.
Great design. Its very light and sleek. Beautiful design. Usb 2.0 ports one on left
and other on right. And usb 3.0 at back. So no worries about usb devices
getting stuck with each other. Also the heat exhaust outlets are at the back. So
when u are using a mouse the heat flow wont disturb you or cause you any
You have metal finish at top and a very solid design. It feels great in ur hands.
Keyboard : Good but the buttons height in not good so you feel a little awkward at the
beginning but u will get use to it. No sound and very comfortable for long
Touchpad : Disappointed at first but after installing proper driver works good.
Sound : WOW. .....very good and not cheap at all.
it has a non removable battery. Some users have a problem with that but that seems perfectly fine to me.
Best part I liked was that you can open the back panel of the laptop and everything from fans to hdd to mobo, wifi everything is easy accessible. So upgrading ram, adding an ssd(oh yes you can add a ssd) cleaning fans is very easy.
All in all I would say that you cannot get i7 +750m+great ultra thin design at just 43000rs.
I played gta V at high setting at hd resolution with 40-60 fps.
I would highly recomend this laptop, a laptop of this configuration you cannot get even at 55000rs.
Its so less priced because it was launched in late 2013, but still a beast and can leave behind most newer models of 50000rs range.
And also users who are having trouble installing windows on it, just change the boot setting to legacy and boot priority first for usb hdd and then use usb with windows installation.
Hope this helps.

It took me a lot of extensive search/research. In this price range, it is rare to find a laptop with an i7 processor with a dedicated graphic card(NOT usual built-in Intel HD graphics).
This is a tremendously powerful machine. The dual-core, dual hyper-threading Intel i7 with an automatic clock capable of 3.0GHz combined with a proper nVidia GT750M chip with 4096MB of dedicated memory allows this ultrathin notebook perform like a competitive gaming laptop when you want, but saves power when you need it.
The 4 speakers on each corner are both loud and clear, but don't expect the low end sound that all laptops inherently lack.
It does come with a robust Dolby software application with services that run in background to make most of the hardware.
The battery is not removable. Should you feel the need to completely power cycle the machine, there is a small button that disconnects the circuit. I rather like the lack of exposed crevices for dust enter, and the battery life is impressive, due in no small part to the additional hardware to support very efficient on-the-go operation.
The battery works pretty good too for a system of this built. It comes with 4 cell Li-ion battery and can give uninterrupted service for up to 7 hours.
The backlit keyboard makes it even more fantastic while browsing and playing games.
The laptop is thin and elegant for having such good specs.
Nevertheless, I would recommend this device . For the price you get excellent performance.

dealer suddenly dropped price from 43000 to 42000 bit sad :-$ but still its an awsm lap.
Hope that it reaches soon!!!
Finally decided to buy this lapppy as it comes with awsm specs and beats all other laptops as of june 2015 coming to it :
1>>> i7 4500u, u stands for ultra low power consumption and this does exactly the same,delivers power when needed with upto 3.1 Ghz with hyper threading handling upto 4 threads at a time.Its more than enough for casual users
2>>>8 GB DDR3 ram provides ample backup for power hungry processor, win OS uses about 3 GB of ram so u dont have to worry about multitasking in this device as about 5 gb is always free
3>>>4 GB Nvidia GeForce GT 750M, i've reasearched a lot into this area and find this the best middle range GPU followed by 940M in new HP pavillion then 840M and all other 720M,820M etc.. are low range GPU so don't be fooled by the numbers .So this GPU will not dissappoint gamers, and can run games seamlessly at HD resolution even 2015 ones!!!
4>>>1 TB SATA 5400rpm HDD this isnt exactly appealing but hey! it has got a free ssd slot for adding an additional ssd that will make your device boot real fast .
5>It has an anti glare HD backlit screen with 1368x768 resolution which is pretty decent at this price anyways you wont feel any difference .
6>>>for connectivity it has Acer Nplify 802.11a/b/g/n which works in dual band and offers good signal strength upto 30m and has bluetooth too although i wouldnt use it.also it has 2x usb 2.0 and 1x usb 3.0
7>>>Acer uses brushed aluminium and plastic alloy for chassis which feels quite premium in your hands also the feel of this laptop is ultrabook like as its only 2.0 kg!
8>>>Regarding battery its a 4 cell non removable battery and can give upto 7 hrs of backup which is cool.
9>>>Backlit Keyboard at last!!! , none of laptops even under 55,000 have this awesome feature other companies got a lot to learn from acer :-o
10>>>u dont get a dvd writer which is fine as it reduces weight and heat emission which benefits you actually.
11>>>It has linux os and win 8.1 can be installed immediately after changingy boot to legacy and usb priority at top and then drivers can be downloaded from acer support
Will update review after recieving product ;-)
An Incredible beautiful and beast ultrabook
by Faraz Ahmad on 2015-08-23
First off, shame on Non Acer companies, for fooling customers, letting people think they get what they paid for but that't not true. Trust me when I say this, I have literally browsed over 100 models from different manufacturers before finally getting this astounding piece of hardware. I am a quidnunc, programmer, and hardcore gamer, so no better person could give you a better insight.
Let me tell you this, when you google 'best laptop under 45000-50000", the top searches show up leading to various sites with shitty configuration laptops with great ratings and reviews, well that is just marketing through various channels, nothing more.
Coming to the product, honestly I was worried that there must be something wrong with this particular laptop for giving such great specs for such a low price as 42K but my doubts changed to joy the day I unboxed this laptop and plugged in for the first time.
This hardware contains the build quality and beauty of a premium laptop.
The processing is smooth no matter how heavy the software or a game is.
i7 at its best, the ample amount of RAM free makes you want to dance around a little bit 8 gigs/ with windows 8.1 installed along with all the necessary softwares and whatnot it still gives 5 gigs free which is more than enough.
The graphics GT750m 4GB DDR3 version of this card is definitely 2 years old but can beat your current gen cards provided with laptops costing around 50K.
Started playing Max Payne 3, Far Cry 4, Crysis 3, Watch Dogs etc with all settings high and maxed out and still getting 25+ FPS on an average. It handles current gen games on med to high as well which I am yet to try.
The display is HD LED LCD, beautiful color reproduction, pixels are sharp and bright, cannot complain.
The Metallic finish makes it look sturdy and stylish. Do note that this laptop is as thin as 1 inch around edges, makes it look so damn gorgeous. lightweight as around 2KG, happy to run, jump and roll with it!
Coming to the most appealing features :
USB ports are separate, one 2.0 usb on each sides, one 3.0 usb on the back.
ALL HAIL BACKLIT KEYBOARD! You practically have to buy an external gaming keyboard with a backlit and it still won't look cool when you have this!
It has an SSD bay, yes a fairy told me you could fit that little monster right in by just opening the back panel of this laptop.
To sum up in a few words : You really have to be a retard to ignore this just because your mama told you to get one from DELL, HP or Lenovo.

This Laptop comes with Intel i7 4500u which is dual core processor and its performance is more or less equivalent to 5th gen i5 5200u.Comes with 8 gb of RAM and 1 tb of HDD which i think is enough to run any program.Coming to the display it comes with a resolution of 1366x768.At 43k you can't ask for a better display and moreover all the games this laptop can handle will run at this resolution only at low settings.I have tested 3 games so far
1) Thief at 1280x720 (med settings) gaves 35-45 FPS
2) Fifa 15 at 1366x768 gaves 60FPS( locked to 60fps)
3) WWE 2k15 1280x720 with crowd density reduced to 50% gave 30-50 FPS
Battery Life is somewhere around 6-7 hours on Normal usage.
Look and feel of this laptop is premium but it attracts a lot of fingerprints so buy a cover along with it
This laptop does not come with a backpack and has no DVD drive( useless anyway)
OS installed Linpus Linux
1 USB 3.0
2 USB 2.0
1 Display Port

So i have got this laptop on 44k via flipkart. Delivery was quite fast which i like about flipkart team. well inspite not having DVD/CD optical drive, it is best laptop within this range. well we have 4th gen i7 which is so good. 8 gb ram=awesome and 4 gb nvidia graphics of 750M bit outdated but works so well. i have tried some games like crysis3, GTA V and sniper ghost warrior 2 it all went smoothly on my installed windows 8.1 . Battery backup is quite good but not the best. Also it has got nice sound quality.
And lastly its has backlit keyboard which is quite good and we dont usually get this facility in laptops of this range and builds. I recommend u should go for it

This Laptop is beast i am playing games at ultra setting such as assassins creed Unity at high and arkham origin soon i will try other games also if anyone want a complete gaming review of this laptop i can upload it for you
by vijay shankar on 2015-08-06
I ordered this Laptop seeing some reviews but the never had such a bad experience with FK.I got the laptop in 2 days, which was really good, but when it got delivered, I noticed laptop keys are not working. Tried raising the issue with FK support, it got pushed by 2 days and 3rd day they liased with Acer support to tell me that Laptop is not in warranty. Funny right. New laptop not in warranty. Then after 3 days of further haggling with Acer support,they sent a form and still no response from FK or Acer and the seller, please dont even talk about the seller. One of the worst in Flipkart platform. My feedback to users, please buy laptops or so, from respective dealers after testing the device. Huge mistake I've made, which I dont plan to repeat with Flipkart again
Some lies out there in description
by Dani Gladson on 2015-06-05
When I ordered this Laptop, the description said Display Resolution as 1920x1080. But few days after I ordered it changed to 1366x768. Now after receiving the delivery I can say that its 1366x768 and its a normal glaring display as opposed to 'non-glare Full HD IPS display'.

Using this laptop since 20th July or so! Gonna go straight to specs:
1. Intel i7 4th gen 4500u, with turbo upto 2.9ghz. dual core. gives around 11 hrs backup (seriously) after some tweaking and use of some *apps*
2. 8gb 1.6ghz RAM, 1 TB HDD. What more could a guy want
3. 4gb dedicated Nvidia 750M -> doesnt show up in dxdiag, but it is there, and everything is great
4. Audio: OMG. this audio system rocked. i usually dont have to go above 60% of total windows volume while movies, gaming or music
5. Numpad, and backlit keyboad. Nice
6. Touchpad : doesnt support gestures at all, and is a little slow. i dont mind that, coz i use a mouse all the time.
7. ONE jack:: only output (headphone) no input (no mic) but u can buy some extender ports that are plugged into this, and they support both i//p and o//p
8. OS: Linpus came preinstalled.. doesnt have a gui. made a bootable setup for windows 8.1 from my older laptop and everything went fluid
OS Insallation only takes 10 minutes from 3.0 (Win 8.1)
and 15 minutes (until bootup on windows 7)
go for windows 10 if you want, thats also cool.
9. display: great display, sort of feels loose, but it is sturdy
10. GAMING: NOW THE PART:
played csgo, middle earth, fifa 15, nfs mw 2005 and 2012,.. and gta vice city :P
also ran gta 5 (removed), far cry 4, COD and more. only some casual gaming
NO COMPLAINTS WHATSOEVER
i only play CS:GO regularly, and get >250 fps (640x480, lowest settings)
and 120-150 fps (1366 x 768, highest possible settings with 8x msaa and anisotropic 16x) Playing at high performance mode reduced battery life to 3 hours! (LOL)
11. photoshop cs6, xilinx, netbeans etc run in a flash
12. no cddvd drive, so installing drivers took some hassle. but i copied all setups to a folder. now every time i install a new os (once every 30 days) i installl drivers from there) there are also driver-updating tools so no issues there.
YES, there is a 3.0 port by the way
keyboard is actually of great quality, but i type like a gorilla so my keyboard sort of feels like it may pop out anytime. Thankfully it doesnt
Currently i am dual booting windows 8.1 and win 10 enterprise (preview), but i plan to replace windows 10 with linux mint, and will be sure to update review soon
and ALL OF THIS.. only for 43000 (current price is even lesser, @41k, amazing!)
Could not have asked for anything more!!!
