Coder? This laptop is for you!
by Sayed A. Abbas on 2014-11-13
I purchased this laptop on 24th October 2014 for a price of 38,490. It came along with laptop bag from Lenovo but the bag was for 15.6" laptops, but anyways, anything free is awesome. So, I needed a laptop which I can use as a local server and also, I intended to play high end games.
Laptop comes preloaded with windows 8 and it can be upgraded to Windows 8.1. And yes, touch works awesome on windows 8.
There are a lot of useless apps from lenovo, pre-installed. They may slow down your laptop so please uninstall them. Also, it's wakeup is surprisingly awesome: You close the lid, it goes to sleep, and as soon as you open the lid, it wakes up! In less than 2 seconds! It makes no noise at all! Also, there was no heating issues but if you run heavy apps for very long time, you may feel little heat above the mouse pad and around keyboard. But that' nothing before the amount that other laptops heat up to!
Keyboard is a bit tricky for coders to get easy with. The shift key on right is half the size so it may irritate you in beginning but eventually, you'll like the accutype keyboard.
The plastic quality of laptop seems bit cheap and fragile but it's much slimmer than Dell's Vostro series (another option I was considering before buying this). And yes, the laptop looks beautiful.
I have played Fifa 15 (installed via Window store) and Asphalt 8 and there was not even a single lagging during game play. Playing soccer with touch made it more awesome. Battery too lasts for about 4-4.5 hours, given than I use full brightness and I run servers continuously on my laptop. So, i you consume lesser memory, it may last longer.
I haven't faced any issues in connecting to internet or any other such issues. However, it feels bit heavy (2.5 kg)
In short, it's value for money.
I will update my review after sometime. Meanwhile, if you're a coder and considering to buy it, go for it.
Except delay in delivery, every thing was great.

Bought it at great price, around 35k and using it for almost a week now. Touch is smooth and no heating isssues. For better experience I would recommend you guys to upgrade to Windows 8.1 as it is more user friendly and have many added features than Windows. There was a mismatch in warranty dates but Lenovo fixed them quickly. Also registerded for 1 year free ADP and 2 year extended warranty on payment of 1499rs. Lenovo approvred the both but they will email certificate in few days.
Good laptop with touch within budget/

Delivery was prompt and good. The laptop itself was in excellent physical condition but there were some pixel issues with the main panel and the warranty date was outdated (i.e it said I had only 177 days left when I had just purchased the laptop). But both of the issues were resolved directly with lenovo. Their customer service was prompt and good, I had made the complaint, followed up with photographs etc and within 5 days the new panel along with a technician to replace it was sent. Now the laptop is functioning perfectly.
It's a good laptop with touch in its price range. Touch response is pretty good. The screen colors could be better but at 1366 x 768 resolution it's decent. Description says 2.5 kgs but it honestly feels like it's lesser. Keyboard is good, not back lit though. Start up and initial setup was fairly straightforward and easy. Main con would be the fingerprint friendly texture of the entire laptop, it's very hard to maintain a clean look on it because of that.

Its Processor is slow compared to its rated value 2.6 GHz. Takes too much time in start up and processing a work. Internet speed with LAN is also slower on it.
But Touch is good.
this company is a heavy black elephant...

This is the bulkiest computer i have ever used. In an age where computers are getting sleeker, this computer is like a heavy black elephant. The touch screen feature is most annoying. Even the new display is tedious. do not buy!
Beyond Expectations... Simply Superb!!!!!

Its a wonderful piece of art with a superb i5 Processor and nice graphics and super fast Ram.
Nice Large Touch screen and everything was up to and beyond the expectations but there should be a little more good battery backup.

nice deal for the price, touch screen is very responsive, start up time is around 20 seconds or even less, slim looks
screen brightness is less
screen can not be tilted more than 100 degree

The keyboard is of really poor quality and after just 3 days of use the charging information has gone haywire. It shows 60%(plugged in,not charging). The shut down and power on is pretty quick. Disappointed overall.
Laptop is very good but laptop bag is not up to the mark

Laptop is very good but laptop bag is not up to the mark. They not give another best quality laptop bag which is given by other lenovo distributors.
