Value For Money, got it at 20K. Also it comes with 2years additional warranty.
by Gowtham Nayak on 2014-08-17
IMPORTANT: this laptop is covered under 2 years additional warranty for another 2500Rs. please note the HP customer care informed me it won't be covered under this scheme but anyway I registered and my laptop is now covered under 2 year warranty period till 2017. I think they would have said the same to you....please inform others.
what you need to know before buying this laptop.
1.got it for 20392Rs, could have had it for 18k but my card had issues at the last moment, decided not to be greedy as I felt 20k was a good price.
2.laptop comes with a bag, its much better than DELL laptop bag. FK hasn't mentioned this..
3. Looks very very good for a 20-25K laptop. its unfortunate we can't find images, I will upload and review the unit asap.
4.Brilliant packqing by flipkart and awesome offer. This site is bankrupting me with irresistible deals.
5.Driver Issue? only if you don't have hands and a brain. Mine is up and running within 3hrs. Everything is available on HP site.
Win 8+Fedora Dual boot.
6.though it looks nice its flimsy, not well finished. panel gaps weak plastic etc.
7.Called HP customer care, they are saying there is no 2 year extended warranty on this laptop. knowing CC I, Duly filled up the form, hope they grant it.
I believe Tech specs are mentioned as it is.
Replying to other guys problem:core i3 supports 64 bit architecture.....most current processors do, so it migh be a problem with the media.

It’s a wonderful PC with excellent price. I’m pretty much happy about the price and the service provided by the flipkart. I got it delivered in 48 hours. If you are looking for a pc for your daily usage go for it. There are some point to be mentioned about the spec and drivers for this model.
Compaq 15-s001TU comes with pre loaded free dos. If you are going to upgrade to windows 8, I believe you won’t find any difficulties in finding drivers from HP product support page. But in case of windows 7 you won’t get the LAN, Wifi and Bluetooth driver from main support page since HP made this model to be worked with windows 8. They provide some generic drivers for above mentioned missing drivers. First of all let me unravel the chipset manufactures details for this model which is not mentioned in anywhere (not even in product catalogue).
Blue tooth – Ralink Chipset
Wifi – Ralink Wifi
LAN – Realtek Chipset
Card Reader – Realtek
Chipset – Intel
USB3 – Intel chipset
If you got any problems with finding drivers please refer HP support forum with "Can't find network, wifi and bluetooth driver for windows 7 64 bit Professional" thread.
Once again thank you very flipkart for providing such a wonderful offer.

CONS:the screen is little bit duller, the keyboard quality is a thing that didnt impress me, but it is ok and its not bad.
The games play very smoothly, i have loaded the os from local computer shop becoz no cd is given.
I think this review helps u. any dounts message here. thank u.
Great Product with some minor issues
by Piyush Dupare on 2014-10-05
I am not very used to of writing reviews but this product caught my eye. First of all timely and great delivery by Flipkart as usual. This product is pretty good for playing games as well as official use. I got the product at 25k and it is worth buying.
Cons: I have a little list of issues.
There is no driver CD given by the seller which will create problems for the user.
The RAM Which is available for use is only 2.45 GB because of Motherboard so..
The sound of the laptop inbuilt speakers is not up to mark. You wont be able to hear anything properly in a room with 2 fans ON.
The BIOS Settings are bit ODD as The 'FN' Key works opposite. So if you wanna fix it try to disable the action buttons from BIOS.
Beside this the product is great and is worth buying at 25K. If you need a friendly laptop for daily use this baby is a charm. 4 star for Product and Extra Half for WS Retail and Flipkart for great delivery and packaging. If you wanna ask anything about laptop just drop a comment. Thank U Flipkart for great deals!
Great Laptop for the price

For this price, you get a laptop that manages all routine applications reliably and always runs quietly while doing so. Even the battery life is good enough to last for 4-5 hrs after full charge. As in most low-budget laptops, you have to live with average screen but the screen resolution in this laptop seems to be quite decent. If you are currently looking for a budget laptop with good configuration HP Compaq is surely a choice. :)

I ordered this notebook on 28th Dec. 2014 and I got it on 29th Dec. 2014 evening. Great shipping process. Hats off to flipkart and team.
24990/- is reasonable price for anyone with the configuration of Intel Core i3 (4th Gen.), 4GB, 500GB, 15.6 inches, Intel HD graphics 4400 and DOS. It is 64 bit architecture. You get 10% off, If you have Standard charted card. Notebook outlook is supper, I installed win 7, 64 bit OS.
All the drivers are available on HP support site.(HP does't provide any driver media)
- You may not get WiFi drivers for this model, but you can install wifi driver from other model ( Notebook's only), it works fine.
- After installing intel HD graphic driver, the aero effect (transparency) doesn't works, Then goto control panel: in the search box type 'visual' and search, then click on "Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects". wait for some time and you are done.
- Install HP Support Solutions Framework, so that it will search required drivers automatically, you just need to install the downloaded drivers.
- I suggest you to install Win 7, 64 bit OS, It will support all apps and almost all drivers are available for 64 bit OS.
- You will definitely regret if you install 32 bit OS.
My system boots within 30 secs, copy speed is fast enough, My DVD has some mechanical issue while auto ejecting and pushing in, but that's not matter.
24990/- is Wondering price. No other system comes with the Core i3 (4th Gen.) under 25000/- Close your eyes and purchase it if your budget is under 25000/-
Good Budget Laptop... with some drivers issues.
by Chandan Varshney on 2014-12-25
Price Wise - 4.5 star
(Good laptop for this price)
Configuration Wise : 4 Star
(Fair configuration when compare to price )
Body Quality Wise : 2.5 Star
(Plastic Quality is not good)
Now come drivers part:
1. For Win 7 64 bit most of the drivers are present at HP official site.
2. For Bluetooth drivers,you can search HP site with Ralink Bluetooth Driver,you will find download link for bluetooth drivers.
3. Graphics drivers present on HP site are not compatible with this laptop, for that you need to go Intel site and search for Intel 4th generation i3 processor,you will get the driver download,that's it you are done.
Overall a good budget laptop for everyday use.. !!
Good Product with Some Limitations
by Lokesh Dhamija on 2014-09-14
Well, product is good Hardware-wise but in terms of software you will definitely face problems. Finding Drivers for windows 7 (32/64 bit) is really tough. I ended up spending a whole day finding them. Even the official HP Site will give you drivers which WON'T work! Especially for Bluetooth and Wifi.
This bounds me to give it one star less.
My new HP compaq laptop went defunct on 5th day!
by Monoj Dey on 2014-11-25
I booked this laptop online dated 17/11/2014 and got delivery on dated 19/11/2014...Very fast delivery by Flipkart..But my experience with the laptop was not good afterwards..From the second day of delivery,it was taking long time to boot whenever I click power-button...And on day 5th,it became totally defunct and not booting at all..I had to return this product....Very disappointing experience!My friends warned me before I had booked this laptop.But I thought time has changed and in this era of e-revolution,we should always go online..I trusted the brand name Flipkart and now I regret why I had not listened to them...so friend,be careful when you buy such product...look before you leap!!!!!!!!!!
