@RON28 How long ago you purchased this product ? I saw many people with facing issues. Product performance does not match compare to its hardware configuration.


3) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?

prefer- Asus, HP, Toshiba. I am not happy with dell. They are losing there market from past few months.

I have the same mode too.. No problems so far. I've played BF3 with most settings at high or ultra with temps below 90 most of the time.. No throttling, No overheating, Great performance.. But yes some have faced problems so its upto you to decide. BTW Asus is a really good brand if you can get some good configuration.

i bought it two months ago...ok so i suggest you these laptops if your budget is 45k.
Samsung NP350

Dell Inspiron 15R but i think you will get only 500GB hard disk.

Asus K53 SM is good, but you won't get original OS, and if you have windows then go for Asus or else get the laptops mentioned above, i think you should wait till Diwali.

and please go for a black color samsung lappy, that pink color sucks.
