    I have purchase this laptop in 30K , I have used other laptops also but this is one of the best 14 inch laptop with very good processing speed and display quality. Keyboard is very handy and all other hot keys are functioning very good. 4G RAM + i3 gives best performance in it range.Laptop is cool even after using it for long time so this is one of the very good quality with this laptop. Worth buy at this price.

    I’ll brief my review under a few broad heads to allow fellow buyers to make an informed judgment-
    1)- Consideration for buying: I was looking specifically for a 14″ laptop with at least a 2.3+ GHz Core i3 of 3rd Generation or above, at a budget of around Rs 30k. USB3.0 was a must. It needed to look sober and weigh around 1.9-2.1 kg. I was moving from a 15.6″ Samsung Laptop with a 1st Gen Core i3 (2.53 GHz), weighing around 2.6 kg. This Lenovo was the only one offering both a high spec CPU and also USB3 at this range. It also had a high number of positive reviews from users. So it translated to a possible good VFM proposition. Also Flipkart had a good rebate offer going on. So I bought it from WS retail on Flipkart.
    Now the Product itself-
    1)- Looks and Build-
    Pros- The entire laptop is built out of non-reflective matte plastic, which is a boon. Even the keyboard base is non reflective, which is good in offices if you have a light just up and front of you. The laptop is chunky, and looks thick, but is actually thinner than a Dell Vostro by quite a margin. The chunky image has more to do with the way the base is fashioned than the actual thickness. The fit and finish is good and sturdy. The base has 4 ventilation slots, that make the HDD cool quite quickly. The hinges are also sturdy and smooth to operate. There is no ‘harmonium’ effect where the screen wobbles and shakes like in other laptops. One can easily mistake this ‘humble’ laptop for a Thinkpad.
    Cons- If you are used to holding this laptop by the edges by the screen, then the hinges can be an impediment as they extend all the way till the end of the body. Though they seem sturdy, this does make me conscious. The matte surface attracts moist patches from your palm and wrists. But it can be cleaned with a few wipes.

    2). Screen-
    Pros- The screen is not matte, but it is also not as reflective in nature as the ‘True Life” screens in other laptops. Though bulbs do reflect off the screen, room reflections do not distract even at low brightness. Images and text are sharp. Also brightness levels can be adjusted across 15 levels allowing some degree of fine tuning of the brightness.
    Cons- Colors appear slightly muted compared to my earlier Samsung. But its miles ahead of the non-reflective screens.

    3). KeyBoard & Touchpad
    Pros- Keys are large, contoured, have good travel and give decent feedback. Arrow keys are full size, a big requirement for me. Touchpad is matte and works well. It is Synaptics in my case, and has the familiar feel of the earlier Compaq’s. Does not interfere during typing.
    Cons- The text on the keys is somewhat ‘in your face’ with both lower and upper case symbols having quite thick and large text, as also the orange (come on!) Fn symbols. The keyboard seems far more cluttered than it actually is. Keys do not feel tactile in some cases, and there have been instances of keys being pressed twice without noticing it. Maybe its just me adjusting from my old keyboard.

    4). Hardware
    Pros- Good config. The 2.4 GHz 3rd Gen Core i3 is among the fastest you get nowadays. The only faster ones are the 2.5 GHz 3rd Gen Core i3 and 2.4 GHz Core i5s. 4th Gen Core ix’s are much slower in the interest of ultra high battery life.
    500GB Harddisk is Seagate, and works quite smoothly. It is 5400rpm. But the performance is a notch over earlier models, and is quite smooth in daily life.
    RAm is 4GB DDR3-1600, in one slot (not 2). So one slot is empty (as per CPU-Z).

    5). Drivers-
    Pros- Drivers are available at Lenovo’s India website. Select the model and download. They are available for pretty much all OSs ranging from WinXP to Win 8.1 64 bit. Everything works fairly well, except on-screen display of hot keys that sometimes does not show after the laptop wakes from sleep.
    Cons- In the case of drivers for Wifi, etc, there are drivers for multiple vendors, without an indication of how to select the right vendor for your particular machine. In the case of the Broadcom Wifi, the installation failed saying that the package was for XP, but I could install it through the Device Manager update driver screen.

    6)- Battery Backup- Excellent. Ranges from 4hrs in normal use of Wifi, etc, and 7 hrs with no Wifi/Internet.

    Conclusion- Really good laptop, smooth and powerful while having excellent battery life. A clear 5 stars from me. Just hope it lasts many years.

    if you are looking for a laptop within 30k, go for it. Don’t worry about the 3rd gen Ci3, it is working great for me.
    Not too heavy and look wise perfect.
    And the build quality of lenovo in 30k laptop with all this features, can’t ask for more.

    *** Just one problem, it comes with DOS, so if you install windows, you have to install the driver manually. So in that case just install the LAN or WIFI driver first and then download the rest of the drivers.

    Overall 5 out of 5… 🙂

    I am writing this review after using this laptop for more than a month.
    Here are the pros & cons of this product:
    1.Awesome performance
    2.Battery life 4-5 hrs(using wi-fi)
    3.Multipurpose Fingerprint Reader is a plus
    4.Two USB 3.0 ports
    5.DVD writer having 7200 RPM is also a plus
    6.Look wise decent OK
    7.Webcam quality: Good(4/5)
    8.Last but not least Superfast delivery by Flipkart. Ordered on Saturday morning got my Laptop on Sunday @ 11 am although it was holiday for HOLI

    1. YouCam driver not supporting this model. You can use any other webcam application which is lil bit hectic to search. Try Mycam.
    2.Look wise as I mentioned it’s Decent not WOW kind of attractive which hardly matters for any professional user.

    Overall Suggestion: Go for this one. You will not get all these Pros in one product in any Brand at this price.

    Actually I’ve ordered this device at 31,500 INR. In my view they offered a good discount when compared to the present price. the specs was good packing a 3rd gen I3 intel’s processor and a 4GB ram. The major specs with divide this machine apart from others in this price category is it packs a 2 USB 3.0 ports, an FINGER PRINT lock and 7200 RPM dvd read/write speed.

    Performance is good. It will not heat up easily.
    Power backup is also good. Easy to carry. Finally it’s worthy.

  8. Rated 4 out of 5


    I got this for my sister who needed a small laptop primarily for Facebook as she uses facebook for her home based chocolate business.

    This laptop is so good that when I used it for a couple of days ( to install the OS etc..), I kinda wanted to keep it for myself. It is light. After 30 mins, you dont even feel it is small. And it is not slow.

    For a Software Developer, running applications simultaneously like Eclipse, Oracle DB, Sql Developer, Google Chrome, MySQL, Photoshop, Dreamwever, Tomcat, SQL Developer, Toad, Adobe Reader, Skype, Facebook, Video Player, Winamp is normal in day to day life. Hence the product is perfect by showing no performance issues since 4 months. Battery Backup is still more than 2.5 hours on rough use. Having almost all new gen functionality. Processing Speed is very good.

    I felt very very comfortable with this laptop compare with my earlier laptops. Worth for the money and good configuration. Not found any issues till now. Panels and other hardware accessories are good.
