    Build qualitySeems okay. I have no complaints. My piece does not have the issues faced by some others who bought the same model.DisplayDisplay is reasonably good. The default fonts on the Windows Explorer are soft and a big improvement over the previous versions of the same.BootingBooting speed is quite high, just 10-15 seconds at most. This is what I like the most about this machine. I bought it primarily as an upgrade over my non-SSD notebook, and SSD does speed it up quite a bit — the difference is noticeable.The biometric reader works like a charm and you get to use the machine in a jiffy after that.Setting up MS OfficeWas quite quick, by following the instructions.Registration with AsusYou can also register the device to avail the Asus warranty, online.KeyboardThe keyboard is chiclet, with numeric keypad. The keys are neither too soft nor too hard, and actually I find the keyboard quite pleasant to use.However, unlike earlier machines, this one has the Home, Page Up, Page Down and End buttons on the bottom row, and the Num Lock key position is unlike earlier notebooks, as seen in screenshot. For those used to the Home Page Up etc buttons at the top of the rows, this is cumbersome.In earlier machines, one could press Ctrl and Home together to go to the top of the page/screen. But in this notebook, you have to press fn key (in the keys in the bottom row) + Home. This too is quite inconvenient.A tip for users: This fn key is a toggle key - by pressing you can alternate between Ctrl and otherwise.Even more cumbersome is the placement of the Num Lock key. Even after nearly 3 weeks of use, I still press it by mistake which often disturbs my work.BodyBody of the user area - keyboard primarily - is smooth and without texture, unlike older notebook. This is another positive. However the silver colour of the body actually puts users at a disadvantage vs. black keyboards. The keys on this notebook can't easily be seen, and since the keyboard isn't backlit, you have to compulsorily put on a light above or near the notebook, if you want to work or type something.Computing SpeedI am quite satisfied with the speed. Though I am not at all into Gaming, I still think I am a heavy user. By virtue of my profession, I typically have about 30 tabs of the Chrome browser open at all times, plus a few tabs of Edge browser. I use Excel extensively, and usually have a couple of spreadsheets open, always. In spite of such heavy use, I don't think I found the notebook to have slowed down so far. A big relief for me.Even the search by file name in Windows Explorer is quite quick. I have like 20,000 files and around 300 GB data on the notebook, so this is something.Battery lifeBattery unfortunately is underwhelming. I am not happy with the battery life, which seems more like a couple of hours, maybe 3 at most. Also I happened to choose a setting which restricted charging of the battery at 60% with a view to extend battery life, and now I am unable to change this setting.HeatingI did notice the keyboard/body heat up a bit when charging. Hope this won't become a nagging issue, going ahead.Delivery experience1 star only. Order was placed on 30/7 but delivery only on 9th August, in spite of initial date of 6th August. So delivery took all of 10 days, in spite of repeatedly following up with Amazon. Very disappointed with Amazon for this.VerdictI think that with an i3 processor, 8GB RAM and 512 GB SSD, this is an excellent machine - not just for students, but even professionals.I bought this for Rs 39,990. The machine was in high demand and I somehow managed to place the order when I could see it in Amazon's inventory. I carried out extensive research on the internet and found this to be the least expensive model, for its config.You won't regret buying this. A notebook with same config, but with i5 processor costs 8-10K more. Even notebooks by other brands with the same config incl. i3, are a lot more expensive.Overall, my rating is 4. I reduced one star on account of the battery life.
    Your browser does not support HTML5 video.  After 2 days itself the display is not working for several timesWe also contacted to Asus customer care and they told to drop the battery charge level fully and then charge it 100% to 3-4 times but nothing changed most of the times the laptop display won't open which is so irritating disappointed with the product
    It has one of the best features at the price. Intel octane ssd 500gb and 8 gb ddr4 ram with hd screen and very loud sound. The vga web cam of some 620x480 is the only low feature which they could have upgraded with 2000 rs increase.
