Loved the laptop, colors, screen resolution and sound. However, Win 8 is kinda confusing. Spent some time searching for menu.. Other than the hiccups with Win 8, everything else is great. As always, delivery by Flipkart team and customer service was flawless.
Fantastic for everyday use!

-Great initial battery life (5+ hrs)
-Display good enough but does not hurt your eyes ( legacy of the Vostro series)
-For everyday use it cannot get better than this. One of the cheapest Dell laptops around and yet I don't think anything has been left out.
-Win 8 ( :) You'll love it once you learn to use it!)
-Proper build. Unlike the low quality plastic body of low end HP laptops.
I honestly can't think of any! I honestly don't see the point of getting a more expensive laptop. ( unless you are into gaming, video editing etc.)

I just received my Laptop Yesterday. Great service by the way by Flipkart. Ordered on Sat and recd on Mon.
The laptop looks solid and Windows 8 just looks great even though it will take time for me get accustomed to it.
Sound is great.
It actually takes time to set up the accounts and with start menu missing, it takes a lot of time to figure out Charms Bar, and all the menus that pop up when u go any corner.
But all said and done, its first class.

Although inclined to buy from flipkart got it from a retailer nearby as he was known to me and got it ready thr also.Sorry 4 this flipkart !
Now for the product- Good entry level laptop for basic needs of computing and social networking, slight gaming etc.Sound is good.Specially Mp3s play nice n loud.Screen again grt.......resolution all perfect.Keyboard is actually island tpe though mentioned standard in dell.Win 8 was not a big task for me:)Go thru the tutorial guys n u are done else u will b fiddling for ever,
I also got restarting prob once but it was due to Win 8 Auto maintainance.Just let it complete and shut down forcibly by the start button.It shoud not happen again.(at least for me).Webcam cud have been better.High res. small pic. But ok.Build good not as solid as Inspiron or Hp.Looks- awesome !Go for it at this price.Battery life...still testing ,seems good 3+ hrs.
Dell completely useless...DO not buy---No service

in my opinion it would be worst to take the dell laptop
because their warranty is actually useless (with next day onsite support)
i bought 15 dell laptop out of this 2 were actually restarting.
first day: shutting down problem
second i called dell people and they asked me do something on phone and i did it
third day: still the same issue
fourth day: i sent the laptops to dell service center
6th day: motherboard replaced and got the laptops back
9th day: same problem, called once again
spent 45 mins on phone
10th day: same issue another 1.5 hr gone on phone
but still they are not sending tecnician on phone and the manager in center behaves like that he is a customer.
still i am facing the same issue
conclusion: if u are buying dell laptop because of their fast service (as it use to be earlier) then please dont buy the dell laptop

sue the dell!!!
u are telling the product is bad but actually same kind of harassment will be done by any company now a days. not every piece produced by dell is bad... this laptop is great for the budget range.
i have one dell and have no problem so far

5 stars are purely for the service I got from Flipkart ..
On the product I will use it for some days and come back. Looks good and promising enough to be rated 5 starts again. nicely build for the price it comes for.
