A very nice light weight laptop with anti glare screen
A very nice light weight laptop with anti glare screen. It is not very common to have a laptop with 14 inches screen, anti glare screen, 7th gen i3 and light weight like this one.If you have a budget within 30k, if you don't really need a 15 inch screen, and looking for a light weight laptop with a standard quality and a very good configuration, this is one laptop which qualifies.
++++Edit after 5 months of heavy usage ++++The laptop is still going strong without any hanging / heating issues. Battery backup has reduced to 4 hours though.Packaging - Professional and neatDelivery - TimelyPrice - Got this laptop during sale for Rs 23990 (plus 10% cash back)Brief background - I have used 6 to 7 laptops extensively in my professional career for office and home use ranging from Dell inspiron, Latitude, IBM Thinkpad. MAin purpose have been databse programming and heavy gaming.Coming to the features of this laptop (Vostro 3468) this is the most cost effective and VFM machine that you can get. After searching laptop for 2 months I zeroed down to this one and waited for festival discount. I am so happy with this purchase.Pros:-1) Specs - i3 (7th Gen), 4GB DDR4, 1TB HDD, D2) Speed - I have replaced SATA HDD with SSD 250 GB Samsung Evo. Booting time for Win 10 has come down to 10 seconds and its even lesser for Ubuntu (I am using dual boot and they both work great together). I have purchased HHD casing for the 1 TB HDD and I am using it as portable storage. There is no need to upgrade RAM since HDD read/write speed is the main bottleneck for home use. This laptop suffices all needs if you are using for nomal surfing, movies, light gaming etc.3) Display - Not the best of displays if you compare it with Dell XPS but at this price I am very much satisfied. Viewing angles are excellent. I still think 14 inch laptops are bulky and lack portability but as you go for lower screen sizes you will have to compromise with specs and price.4) Fingertouch security - This is a feature you cant find in other laptops in this price range. Make sure "Windows Hello" feature is enabled in you Windows 10 OS and Finger Print GUI program in Ubuntu. Below are the commands you can use in terminal window to install it in Ubuntu.sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fingerprint/fingerprint-guisudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install libbsapi policykit-1-fingerprint-gui fingerprint-gui5) Ubunutu OS - This the best and safest free OS I have ever come across (doesnt even need an antivirus). It comes pre loaded and you dont even need to install any hardware drivers on it. If you dont want you have remove it and can even install on a pen drive. Best thing about this OS is you have pre installed Ubuntu version of Office (Libre Office) where you can edit your PPT, docs, exl files etc and its compatible with MS word doc formats as well. Its all free for lifetime.6) Battery - The battery is decent and removable and after SSD upgrade I am easily getting a backup of 5-6 hours. There is no heating as well.Cons:-1) Built - As I mentioned this is the best laptop that you can get in this price range but still I feel Dell has compromised the overall built quality here. The keyboard flexes downwards if you apply even little bit of pressure. Same goes with the screen when the lid is closed. This means you have to be very very careful. I have done some rough handling with my Dell Inspiron (even used to lift it with the lid end in open laptop position and nothing happened). But this one will surely break from hinge end. The body is a total finger print magnet and the marks will persist heaviliy if you have oily hands. Even the charger quality looks to be of some cheap make. Weight is also on a higher side and portability remain compromised.2) Keyboard - Its definelty not the best that Dell has delivered as compared to other laptops. The chiclet keys are not the most confortable and make noise while typing. Also the fonts on keys are very dimly printed and lacks crisp visibility.3) LED indicators - This is the biggest down side. There is no CAPS lock, Num lock indicator at all. There is only one LED which lights up when you are charging the laptop. Which means there is no way to know if your lappy is switched on or not neither you can figure our if there is some HDD R/W activity happening.Verdict - If you are not willing to spend heaviliy then this laptop will suffuce your basic needs as it provides the necessary specs which will easiliy keep you future proof for almost 4-5 years.
Beautiful .... Best feature is finger print unlock.....
Sufficient for everyday use

It has been a month since I got this laptop and I didn't have to worry about any hardware or software troubles.1. It comes with a preinstalled Ubuntu OS which is okay to use.2. Except for all the hard work you have to do when installing Windows OS and drivers, it almost never needs you to worry about anything else.3. I don't see any heating problem up to now.4. Has the sturdy structure almost every Dell laptop boasts.5. The fingerprint scanner can be a headache. Try installing all windows updates and bios update from the official Dell website.Overall, if you need this for work, education or a little gaming, it is a good choice in this price range.
