  1. I want know about laptop name Lenovo l50_45 with 8gb ram is good laptop yes or no

  2. bro can you please review it? here at offline I will get Asus R558UR at 42k with DOS and 46k with windows 10 … please help asap.. my bro need a laptop..

  3. Asus A540LA priced 26799. My Asus A555la-xx2064d powered by 5th gen intel i3 2.1ghz costed only 24349 on shopclues.

    1. You mean ShopClues actually delivered the laptop!!! Most of the online complaints about non-delivery pertain to ShopClues and Snapdeal.

    1. Ya i called asus call centre they confirm that the price is 27000 appx not 21000.all site review is saying wrong rate.its rate is appx 27000

    2. That is the price of the Core i3-4005U model (A540LA-XX016D). The ₹20,990 model has a Pentium N3700 processor. But I think Gogiji hasn’t mentioned the 21K model here.

  4. Its Asus R558UR an upgraded version of R558UF ..Gogi bro I am looking to buy it with windows 10 … Can you please review it.. I want to buy laptop this month for my brother.. I am confused between R558UR and Dell Inspiron 5000 series 5559 laptop. please review 🙂

  5. Alternative is HP 15-AC179TX
    No VGA port, No C type
    2 DIMM slot means upgrad up to 16GB RAM
    AMD Radeon R5 2GB
    4-Cell Li-ion
    Other spec. seems similar

    1. I have this Hp ac179tx bought just 1 month before, it heats so much while playing games and battery life is also worst.

      1. Keep resolution 1378 x 768 while playing games will increase battery life and reduce heating.

        1. Well, Mukesh…

          There is no such resolution that you have prescribed…

          There are 1360*768 and 1366*768

          1360*768 used by monitors and 1366*768 mostly by laptops

          Well, 1360*768 is the right ratio, 8-bit format…

          1. ok you try it 1366*768 and also try 1280×800 and figure out which will solve your problem anyway HP is trusted brand so even if you not satisfied show it to service engineear they provide on site warranty. Mostly it was observed that heating issue cause due to heigher resolution and GPU you can also switch your GPU through BIOS.

        2. its a heater bro no matter on which resolution u use. it for gaming…. it even heats on normal usage like net surfing and media playback so plz dont recommend this heater to anybody…. u can also check its reviews on amazon regarding heating issues and also amd r5 is not as powerful as nvidea 930, fifa 16 lags so much on amd r5…so better buy any laptop without graphics card if u not use it for gaming and if u buying laptop for gaming than better spend some more bucks and buy hp ab523tx…. this hp 179tx is not worth

  6. Bhai features k hisaab se toh kaafi shi lag rha h,budget mai bhi hai….koi or competitor h kya iss price range mai ????

    1. The Company hardly has any 14 inch models. If you want a14 inch laptop, I think your besy bet would be HP — who have a range with both Intel and AMD processors, from Rs 20K onwards.
