The purchase went smooth. I ordered it online on 7th July and got it delivered on 12th July. Much earlier than the actual delivery date.


The latop is functioning properly without any problems. Regarding the heat issue cited across all forums, well, when you shift to "Performance" mode the laptop does get a little hot however; nothing crazy like others complain about. Also, it remains silent no matter which power plan you select. On "Balanced" or "Dell recommended" mode it does not get hot so I guess Dell has fixed the heat issue with the newer lots of 1558 laptops.


Fortunately, everything, right from sales to product usage was a piece of cake and I hope the same continues.


The quality of the Targus bag is also very nice (black soft leather) and is very useful.


The performance of the laptop is really nice, no lag also whatsoever. Forgot to purchase Mcafee 15 month license and when requested Dell they said that cant be done as the order has been completed from their end.


Have run bluray dvds and work top notch on this machine without any performance or heat issue.


It has a glossy bezel hence; it is finger print prone. Cannot think of any negatives except for the commmon indiciators of HDD, network status, caplocks and wifi not being there.


I would recommend this customised latptop to every individual.


The total price was Rs. 58, 100 including delivery, handling and taxes.


Thanks.
