Complete Value for Money, Awesome Product

I have bought this laptop in jan 2012, & i will share my experience since then as i am writing this review after using this laptop for 3 months,
This is a great product, and let me tell you the best part is its price.. its complete value for money. The screen is anti-glare HD-WLED which you would hardly find in any other laptop in this price range, which is actually very useful when you are using laptop for a long period as it doesn't give any strain on eyes..
I am a technical person & from IT background & Profile & I use this laptop alot, you can say it's almost ON all the time, I chose this laptop only because this is is the best available in the market in such a price range & with great performance believe you me..
i am loving this laptop and i am Extremely Satisfied with the product... thanks dell for making such a wonderful product at such price range,
I have suggested this laptop to my friends & 2 of my friends have actually purchased it & they both are Completely Satisfied. so its my advice to you all that don't be in any doubt, just grab it before dell stops manufacturing this model.

Also Thanx to FlipKart for the best price..U guys are rocking..

Dell Vostro Laptop core i3

I got this laptop yesterday evening from Flipkart and the experience from buying through Flipkart is good.

Overall look and feel is good but low on finishing areas at certain places like:
1) optical disk drive
2) keyboard buttons
3) makes an eerie noise while booting.
4) Warranty issues
5) Speakers are average.
6) Heavier and thicker than expected.

Plus points:
a) Speed of processing is absolutely amazing.
b) Working on Linux is very easy.
c) The laptop was delivered in 36 hours which is decent. Good at this price.
d) The bag provided is awesome.

Very Good Product

Running win 7 64 bit smoothly. the i3 2.4ghz(1st Gen)processor and 2gb ram is more then enough for daily routine.I added up 2 gb more for running casual 3d games they are working perfectly. Remember to download all the drivers for the OS for a better performance. overall i liked the rubber finish of the front panel as it saves the laptop from getting scratches as well as to what we checked the battery backup is also around 2 hrs which is quite good for the performance mode.
Overall liked the build quality of the product.

Packing was great, laptop was brand new, all the functions were great, the only thing from the laptop point of view is that it has got dull display. From the flipkart point of veiw ,the invoice date of laptop is 23/03/12 but when registering with the Dell, i found that warranty is registered since 13/01/12.I inquired with the flip kart but the reply was that the warranty will be considered from invoice date. I hope it is true, or else some one please clarify me.
