Good Budget Laptop from Dell
by DevG on 2014-06-15
Ordered: June 14, 2014
Received: June 15, 2014
Contents: Laptop, Charger, Windows 8.1 Recovery Disc, Manuals, Targus Bag (Freebie)
User: Mostly my wife (A Light User)
Other Contenders: Dell Vostro (exactly same config but with Ubuntu) & HP Pavilion 15-260TX (same config)
Why did I choose this:
1> Amazing Flipkart offer - 10% discount + 10% cashback on Standard Chartered Cards. It cost me 29400/- instead of 36290/- (Savings: 6900/-)
2> Wife did not want a Pirated Windows 8.1, so Ubuntu was off the list
3> HP was 15.6", so bigger, heavier.
4> No VGA Port (instead a HDMI port) but my wife needs a VGA for Projectors, didn't want to put in more money for converter.
5> Finally, HP was offering AMD 2 GB Dedicated Graphics Card whereas Dell offered NVIDIA GeForce 2 GB Dedicated Graphics Card. Didn't want to compromise on Gaming abilities
Initial Laptop Review-
1> Great specs at the final discounted price.
2> Good old Windows to take care of all your official work without any hassle
3> Very light & compact
4> Handles multiple tasks well
5> 14" form factor is best for daily laptops in my opinion.
6> Video streaming & playback was without any lags (HD Videos)
1> Looks are average. No curves, all squarish.
2> Plasticky body doesn't feel sturdy
3> HP was amazing in both these departments
4> Touchpad has integrated keys which are not 100% accurate always
I'll add in my gaming experience + first week review after a week.
Summary: A good laptop for beginners like students or someone who already has a better config laptop. I'm mostly against Netbooks coz they compromise a lot on the performance, so this a great upgrade/replacement for one's sluggish netbook.
Pick the HP 260TX lappie if you want to flaunt it in cafes/colleges.

I am writing this review after using this laptop for 1 month. The laptop is made of plastic body. It looks cheap product.
Pros: Light weight, battery backup is good
Performance: Processor is very slow, touch pad and keypad is very bad
I have used my previous dell laptop for five years. I have lost complete faith on dell after buying this one. I do not advise to buy this product. Lenovo flex series is much better.

About Product : laptop running slow and getting hand time to time
by Benjamin Paul on 2014-07-09
It is light-weight and powerful. It does not have any LED indicators except for power LED, even that turns off soon after the laptop boots - it does not really matter to me but it was a surprise to not find those indicators that I am so used to.

by BINOD KUMAR on 2015-07-10
Delivery service is very poor. I had always used snap deal product was excellent and delivery services was fair.
But this time I have used to buy a Laptop price@33000 + 300 delivery charges through Flipkart but services is very frustrating with worst product,

Lap's great but with a few drawbacks. the touchpad is not easy to use and the display is not good, other than that it is a great lap.
Worst Product Never Purchase
by std2056 on 2015-05-11
Worst product by dell and flip-kart. Please don't purchase because after purchasing flip-kart will not return your money back with bla bla reason. It seems other websites are giving better service and quality product then flip-kart in less price.

Build quality of body and touch pad is not so good. Whole body is made of cheap plastic but this is what make it light.
In this price if we consider its performance then it is good.
