I bought this laptop month before , Installed win10 initially to try which worked fine and later switched to Linux.
This laptop is lite compared to my previous Dell.
FHD antiglare display is good and games worked fine.
Battery backup comes around 5 hours for medium screen brightness.Upgraded the RAM to 12 GB which is needed for running multiple virtual machines , for normal use the provided 4gb ram is enough.
The sound effect is good in Windows and Linux it is okay need to tweak ALSA configuration.
No FHD with i5 6th gen 4gb ddr4 ram and amd 2gb card is available at this price point at least for now(16/sep/2016).I bought it for Rs 41500 with 500 as cash back.
Here are few things which may need improvement:
Touch pad - need to press harder for left and right click.
Driver CD can be provided with laptop .Instead of providing with DOS Ubuntu could be fair alternative.
Laptop bag provided by some sellers others may not check it before buying .
Warranty registration is bit complex with hp need to upload the docs to hp customer care to update and claim the warranty.
Hp support is good. They willing to help can be improved on lead time to help.
The graphics card 430 not 330 once you do firmware upgrade you will see 430.
Wifi in Linux is not working good .few tweaks needed for getting good range.
This laptop doesn't have power button LED light ,the power status led present on the right edge.
No backlit led keyboard.
Best at its price range

Got it a week before. Installed windows 10 Pro. Boot is really fast. The power button doesn't have illuminated light, we have to look at the side of laptop to see if it is on. The speakers are at the bottom, really good. Very loud and clear. There is small tick tick sound when hard drive is in use. Laptop has got good texture outside. The screen has anti glare feature, so no problem of using in sunlight and you cant see your own reflection.
Used product received. Beware buyers!!!!

I received an used product,Whose warranty was already registered on June 2016. Curse you Amazon and seller. I bought an used laptop for 43500 rs , so sad.
Product is very good.
Very good screen quality.
Anti glare function is super.
Tough part is installation of drivers.
Graphic drivers provided by HP are not working.
Heating is amazingly reduced by installing proper Graphic (Intel one first) drivers and decrease screen brightness to 50?. Then no heating at all.Dont worry about heating.
Please go nearby shops and buy even it costs you some extra bucks but you will get new ones.

Hi, I bought this laptop last week. After installing Windows 10 and all drivers from HP website, it is detecting the Graphics card as R5 M330 and not R5 M430 as mentioned in the specifications by HP on their website.
Can HP explain this discrepancy?
Very good specs - great value for money

I bought this laptop of a Hp website registered dealer for 42800 last week.
1. No default Windows 7 support. No driver DVD provided. It does not even detect an ethernet network cable when connected to Win 7. Royal pain!
2. Major WiFi issues in Linux. You will have to fix fwlps and ant_sel params. (google rlt 8723be Wifi problem linux)
3. HDD has a very faint clicking sound while booting. (Some other reviewer also mentioned this.)
4. Looks dull when compared to Lenovo, thick screen borders etc etc. Mousepad click keys sound like they are cheap spring loaded keys from previous century.
1. Great specs - 1080p HD, Ram is DDR4 and card is Amd R5 430. Most laptops at this price range are DDR3 Ram and 330 card. Some are 720p display.
2. Very good battery life - I'm getting about 5 hours use on wifi for browsing, youtube and music. (Brightness low to medium)
3. Great value for money. Very good offer from shop - Got hp bag, Availed onam2016 offer for 1000 rs for 2 years additional warranty. They've promised to upgrade RAM to 8GB without warranty issues.
4. No heating issues. (I dont game on this. Work laptop.)
5. Feels relatively light.
Overall great value for money laptop.
Firstly its dos based so i was pretty confused about it

I bought it from exclusive store worth43k with all drivers and wondow. Firstly its dos based so i was pretty confused about it.
Finally i buy it. After using for three days windows got corrupt.but it wqs all software issuse.talking about the performance its amazing. Ddr4 ram is quite fast. I5 6th gen battry backup is good enough for normal use.
I suggest u to buy a windows for it becox another version of this laptop that is ay0011tx is not full HD so it could be a good deal.

I liked the laptop. All good configurations. But I am noticing some kind of klik klik sound from harddrive. Seems hard drive is having trouble. Need to go for replacement probably.
