Good Laptop on Tight Budget
Reviewed in India on 3 October 2019
Just got the product delivered after a excruciating wait of 4 days.
Initial Impressions are good.
Laptop is fast.
I already have a desktop with SSD, so i know how much impact can a SSD have on the speed and performance.
Look-wise it is not very beautiful ,it is rather a old design i would say.
Display is pretty average, my hp desktop has beautiful color saturation as compared to this. Viewing angles are pretty poor i would say. You have to sit in idle position in order to fully see what is going on in each and every corner of the screen.
Batter life is also average, as per industry standards.
The display can bend up to 180 degrees.
Keyboards are not backlit, which is wrong to expect at this price, but typing on them is pretty convenient.
Speakers are average, but i wish speakers were upward because downward speaker sound gets suppressed due to surface.
Web cam is very poor, reminded me of old VGA cameras.
The laptop is slim and weighs less too, so easy to carry around.
Track pad is smooth. Gestures are of really great help.
No indicator for caps lock or numeric lock, so that's a bummer.
The back side of the laptop is totally sealed, i.e in order to add RAM or expand storage we will need to open the screws which will void the warranty if we do it by ourselves, and the service team will charge a hefty sum for this service at the Acer authorized service center, which is not good.
The provided charger is old generation i.e comparatively huge and bulky, not the type Asus or Dell gives with their laptops nowadays.
The only Reason i gave it 5 star is because i bought it in a steal price of effectively 22.5k on GIS, Sept 2019.
Otherwise i would have given it 3.5 star max.
Will upload pics tomorrow and give updates on the performance.
