Value for money, totally recommended.

I was in a state of confusion for the last few months cuz I was looking for a laptop with a decent and a very portable laptop for a price range of 50k. There were some contenders but after much, much study of benchmarks and the statistical performance keeping in mind the price range I finally choosed HP Pavillion M4-1003tx. I was sure that my studies wouldn't let me down but the only thing I was afraid of was "Will this laptop get heated too quick?" but inspite of this question I finally bought this laptop.
And I would like to tell everyone that, unlike the other 40-50k range HP gaming laptops of G6 series, this laptop DOESNOT have any such issue about overheating. The day I bought this laptop I installed two games (yes, heavy once ofcourse, Battlefield 3 and Prototype 2) and played for 3 long hours continuously, and I was just amazed to see how cool the laptop stayed. This laptop is a must if you are a price range of 45-50k.
As for the above comment by the above user, I would presume if it is a manufacturing defect.
As for the technical specifications I will sum up in Pros and Cons.
1. Core i5 3230M Ivy Bridge based Processor having 2 Cores and 4 threads (Hyper Threading) just superb processor. If you look at the bench marks its even better than some i7 processor.
2. Dedicated Nvidia 730M 2GB Graphics Card. Go to gamedebate.com and look for this mobile GPU and look at the benchmarks. Superb results. A perfect GPU for playing modern demanding games.
3. Display, as clear as Crystal.
4. Booting time. Gone are the days when yiu have to wait for a while to get windows loaded. With 8 GB of RAM the boot time takes only about 8 seconds.
5. Hardware, its metallic touch.
1. Its speakers. Although the quality of the speakers is superb but the strength and the volume of the speaker is way to low. If you are playing a game you could hardly hear what the characters are saying if you are in a big room.
I bought this laptop from a local HP store and not from flipkart. And I'm amazed to see why flipkart has downgraded the product while keeping the same price. Ram should have been 8 GB and hard disc should have been 1 TB. Hoping flipkart would take measures against this.
So I would like to finish this saying that this laptop is worth each penny you have spend for it. A must!!

i think is not good

Bought it after months of market research.Certainly a good buy.Looks are awesome.Gaming is OK for a laptop.I am a serious Gamer and let me tell you no laptop can rival desktop in terms of gaming, no matter how costly it is.The main purpose of a laptop is mobility in which this model is pretty awesome as it is a sleekbook with all specs desired.RAM, HDD, Processor, etc are way better than any other in this price range.
not really the best.....

i bought this laptop last week from a local store.....was charged rs.52,500 for it.
overall this is a nice performing laptop with high end specs, but the display the trackpad and the heating are a huge letdown.....if you are looking for nice looks matched with average performance...this is a good option...but i would suggest you to have a look at lenovo z500 series...much better for the same pricing....
NOTE: if your sole purpose for buying is for gaming...this is a really bad option...heats a lot!! even for very low settings(played nfs12,cod mw bops...730m is really good though)
i had bought it for casual gaming...but cant spend more than an hour on it because of overheating...even a cooling pad didnt work to much affect.
overall an average buy, but i doubt it will remain good for the long run
2.keyboard-easy on user
4.8GB ram and 1tb(not much of use really)
4.no numpad or backlit
5.average display and sound for this price
IMPORTANT:PLEASE CONTACT FLIPKART BEFORE BUYING....I BOUGHT THE VERSION AVAILABLE ON HP SITE...THERE ARE 3 DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THAT AND THE VERSION ADVERTISED BY FLIPKART.....
1.RAM 8GB VS 6GB
2.HDD 1TB VS 750GB
3.I5 3230M--H77 VS H75
I BELIEVE FLIPKART IS IMPORTING THIS VERSION...NOT SUGGESTED TO BUY ONLINE...
SIMPLY AWESOME AND VALUE FOR MONEY

First of all, the config. shown here are different from the laptop i bought...
it has - 8 GB RAM and I TB HDD.
I have done a lot of research before buying this product.. my price range was 60k to 65k and i still ended up buying a 49 k laptop, that proves its value for money :)
This is a high performance machine, with awesome GPU and nice processor. Its really good for hardcore gamers and graphic desingers..
Coming to pros and cons...
i5 , 3rd gen processor with good clock speed ( 3.2 Ghz with turboboost )
14 inch screen ( i am kinda obsessed with 14" screen size ;))
GPU- NVDIA GT 730M with 2 GB dedicated memory, this video card is really powerfull for gaming.
VERY NICE COOLING SYSTEM.... i straight away played battlefied 3 , and it didnt heat up that much..
integrated INTEL HD 4000 video card ( although not much of use, since it already have a dedicated GPU)
Really not much of cons at this price but..
At least 64 GB of SSD was what i expected, but no SSD ..
NO BACKLIT KEYBOARD :(
DEDICATED RAM OF VIDEO CARD IS GDDR3 NOT GDDR5 ( WHICH IS THE LATEST TECHNOLOY, AND REALLY FAST)
OVERALL, ITS A GOOD BUY IN THIS PRICE RANGE :)
Wrong information on flipkart
by vijay pimoli on 2013-07-10
Its the best gaming laptop in the market under ?50000 segment, but i wonder why flipkart is giving false info as RAM is 6 gb and HDD is 720 gb whereas in official HP website it is clearly 8 gb RAM and 1 TB HDD. Why do you downgrading the product, flipkart. Don't you wanna get some sales for this laptop. I will give five star for this laptop performance as i purchased it through local HP shop.
