Believe me it is what you need.

Its simply Amazing. (usually i don't write reviews but this made me write it)
Do not go for any other laptop before June 30th 2015 coz i'm telling you, this thing gives you the deal.
Processor: Its core i5 5th Generation 5200, the best available at this price range.
Ram : again the best available at the range, 4 Gb
HDD: Its SATA HDD with 5400 rpm, 1TB
Now the best thing for gamers,
Graphics: Nvidia 920M,2gb... now let me tell you what this is...
If you buy a dell, hp, lenovo laptop in this price range 35000-45000, you are most probably going to get either nvidia 720m or 820M(1GB graphics) or AMD Radeon 230M(2GB), but the thing is the quality matters devastatingly b/w nvidia 820m vs 920m(i don't even want to talk about 720m and radeon 230m). The shader units available in 920m is 384 whereas it is just 96 shader units in 820m. This graphics card is atleast 1000 rupees more than the counter parts which are just entry level graphics cards. But this guy, nvidia 920M comes under mid-range graphics which is really a big deal.
Asus Back to school offer:
Yes, this is again a great offer available if you are a student and are planning to buy a laptop in this summer. ASUS has this offer at (asusbacktoschooloffer.com) where you can register and get amazing complementary gifts for free like 3 years warranty at no additional cost.
Design: it has glossy finish which is the only drawback in it,but hey, that's the case with hp laptops too. Your finger-prints will be seen very easily (so you gotta buy a bottle of colin every year).. (this is the only place where lenovo laptops will take the lead)
Build: The feel of the keys, the touchpad is really great and the overall build of the laptop is amazing. I'm telling you its a beast.
Just Remember to install Windows 8.1 (not windows 8) on it as all the drivers will then be supporting it.
Review: 8.5/10 Overall performance
Fast, decent screen, decent features

I got mine and it looks pretty new to me. Turned it on and created accounts. Very nice feel overall and seems much higher quality.
ASUS IS MY FAVORITE BRAND. EVERYTHING I BUY WORK AS EXPECTED.
by Anindya Kundu on 2015-08-23
I got the laptop in a day of order as I'd opted for quicker delivery options.
Packaging was brilliant. The Laptop Box was well protected by a thick padding of big-sized bubble wrap. Undoubtedly, 5 stars to flipkart for this.
You get a good feel of the product as soon as you see the ASUS box. The laptop comes with a long enough power cable (Adapter cable + DC cable). There is a driver CD along, which is meant for Windows 8.1, but you can still install it in Windows 10 (except the Intel HD 5500 VGA Graphics driver which needs to be downloaded and installed for Windows 10).
Coming to the laptop, you'd require only one word to suffice : AWESOME!
The build quality is very good and feels absolutely Premium. It is very thin at the sides and is lightweight. The dock has a chrome finish with a brushed metal look. The keyboard feels very comfortable and widespread. The track-pad is totally non sticky and big enough. The heat vents are superbly placed at the monitor-dock joint, so you needn't worry if you're working on bed. Its really amazing to work on. This time 5 stars to ASUS for this design and build.
Now the pros and the cons:
Battery - It gives around 5-6 hours on basic working offline and around 3 on WiFi. You can get around 1.5 hours on gaming.
Display - The display quality is very good and vivid. Has an absolute viewing angle of around 180°.
Heating - There is absolutely negligible heating. The keyboard and dock doesn't feel to get warm at all. As long as you aren't gaming there is no heating at the bottom too. On gaming for an hour the bottom starts to get warm but not hot.
Sound - ASUS has implemented SonicMaster technology which gives clear and powerful sound clarity.
Performance - The best I've seen for this price. The processor seems adept at anything.
The storage is plenty. The RAM is quite decent in this category. Finally talking about the Graphics, it has dedicated 1997 MB of NVIDIA 920M and integrated Intel HD 5500. Gaming on this laptop is amazing. I can run Farcry 4 on high to very high settings, Watch Dogs on high, so with GTA V and FIFA 15. There are no frame drops or lags at all. However, be sure to install Windows 10 properly and get activated.
The boot has a con. You've to press the power button once, let the display pop up, and then you've to power up again to begin. To access boot menu you've to Press F2. Booting windows takes around 15-20 seconds. You get a feeling that your device is having a disorder.
The VGA camera is horrible. Make sure you get a clip on webcam if you're onto making video calls.
ASUS has some support issues with the OS. Get Windows 8.1/10 if you're not Linux user. Lower versions of Windows has issues with drivers; e.g. the WLAN driver doesn't work on Windows 7. Also you might face some issues with Windows 10 direct install at the beginning, so first get an activated Windows 8.1 and then free update to Windows 10. Make sure you install the 64 bit version for best performance.
Lastly, RAM is not at all less but is a bottleneck in comparison to the other specs. You might not be entirely pleased if you have a tendency of doing multitasking while running graphics intensive applications.
Summing up, this laptop is a very good pick for the price. Just go for it. You might ask the service center and upgrade the RAM for 2-3k later, if you require.

To start with, If you got only 40K and u want to experience hard core gaming. This is the laptop for u, I have been using this laptop for 3 months now. And believe me when I say that I struck a bargain. Smooth performance, no heating and no lagging in any way.
Chukk Asus ( Amazing Product For Gamers )
by Razor on 2015-06-06
The Laptop is very powerful both internal(i5 5th gen & 2GB Nvidia 920M) and external(Build). I installed windows 7 It gave me problem since the drivers were not supporting it. Better go with Windows 8.1. Installed NFSMW 2012 , FIFA, Crysis running smoothly. The Battery Backup is very long. Smooth Touchpad with smart Gestures. Chukking Asus Machine

At the End I Would say that Good Laptop , Required Cooling pad and external mouse and keyboard for Gaming ...SO PLease Go For it It is Cheap and GooD .............. Thanks

Worst product ever.....never buy it.I got defective product and they were nt replacing it so I returned this worst laptop.
Very Reliable and Durable Period.
by Devlak on 2016-02-05
I wanted a laptop for studies/slight gaming. Now I have been using this laptop for quite a few months now.To put it in one word, it just fits me.
At times I felt that cpu was not good enough for some games like nfs run and advanced warfare, also when I would open like 10 tabs at once in browser it used to lag and using auto cad felt like the core 2 duo desktop at home but when I once switched to high performance from the power plan the I saw the real performance change.
1.Amazing processor. Tested it to the limits and totally bangs the i5 badge ,in a good way.
2.Good Graphics procesor. Can play games at high settings and runs smooth in mid and low settings.
3.Remains cool even after hours of use .
while the cpu is not loaded supposing no games or heavy cpu using apps are being used. Surfing the web ,watching movies or streaming can never load the cpu enough to make it hot and what I especially liked is that the laptop woud'nt break a sweat while I slept through a movie at night only to find the laptop still running in the morning and playing another movie from the playlist and the laptop at a very neutral only slightly warm temperature and no way near anything I can call hot.During heavy gaming the laptop still gets hot though.
4.Built Quality Very good lower part of the body ,only the hinge part of the upper body is what sometimes I feel is a little fragile .Overall good quality fit and finish.
5.Display is very average at the best, does the job.I would have really rated it 5 stars if and only if It would have been antiglare, but it is still a steal since I got it for 40.5k
6.Battery. Another reason for not giving this review a 5 star. A 2 cell battery, really !!!! To an i5 with a gpu?? The battery hold out for about 3-4 hours at best.A standard 4 cell was a must.
Amazing laptop on amazing price
by karmvir rana on 2016-01-28
I loved this laptop from the day i put my hands on this budget costed laptop. Everything works fine, i even got 2 years extended warranty and other goodies in the promo period. I only reduced 1 star because of the one slow part in this laptop is its hard disk. I never felt this problem in my other HP and HCL laptops but in this one i see that whenever i do something, the disk usage climbs abruptly to 100%. Even if i copy something it climbs at a big pace. I removed my antivirus and since the problem has resolved but i think it is a hardware problem with hard disk and motherboard. So if you can live with high disk storage and low speed you can buy this. But i would still recommend if you can get the same laptop with SSD. Looks are amazing of this laptop. It gives the feeling of metal even though it is damn plastic of some sort.
Good laptop at affortable price
by Flipkart Customer on 2015-09-22
Very good configuration in this price range. Have purchased from flipkart and no problem observed till now. Initially was facing booting problem with win 8.1 but yesterday upgraded to windows 10 and problem solved. Driver finding for win 10 is an issue and from asus support website can get all driver. But installing the drivers one by one is really painful. Power backup almost 4 to 5 hour for average use ( and in windows 10 , battery saver mode is available). Overall good laptop.
Cound not find powertogo or mcafee software .The laptop is powerfull but look is average.

5.Weight is less compared to other laptops in this segment.
6.Low price with these specifications.
8.Laptop box is like cardboard suitcase so you don't need bag unless u need it.
9.Ventilation is at back side so you don't expect any heat on keyboard while playing or watching videos.
10.Sound quality is awesome.
1.Back panel is finer print magnet.
2.Non removable battery (why someone want removable battery)-Thanks.
