You really want to spend 42k that too on emi for a Chinese manufacturer(aka talking about ownership & not place of manufacturing) laptop with no established presence in India? Just get acer or asus(both non-chinese owned) or even Lenovo which is also Chinese owned but has much better after sales support & presence in India.

I thought you are getting to for 500rs.
There was some bug on FK long back.

That 42k Avita Liber (7th gen intel processors) sells for ~30k during sale days (was 5K/10k last year stuck_out_tongue)
It’s better to invest on the 30k Avita Pura w/ Ryzen 5 3500u or even Magicbook 15 @ 40k (Best option right now*)

Anyways…if you check the FK reviews for Avita Laptops they’re pretty good (Service is something you need to concentrate upon*) but new launches at 30-40k might’ve too many compromises like shitty build/keyboard (which is not the case it seems for the Magicbook)

That bug was a part of official brand/product promotion by Flipkart… majority didn’t get it and won’t happen again as the product (Avita Pura) already got decent user reach now smile

Mgicbook seems good only cons is that it is without backlit keyboard.

Btw I am talking Avita Libre V 14 which was launched 2 days back.

had seen view online videos, there seems to be good spec and least price but there are few cons also. The screen flap is said to be not properly joined, it’s wobbly and after 7-8 months later it may even crash.. So do check that..

Model I am talking here is Avita Pura Ryzen 5 and it’s the only one I used of this brand.

I would not recommend it as a laptop.

Creaks while holding it
(Ryzen model) Heats up real quick, so I disassembled and looks like a kid applied the thermal paste.
Re-pasted and put a copper shim. Now better thermals.
Finally gave it to my cousin to use it as a desktop replacement.

So if you are comfortable with repasting, then buy it, that too for using in desk. That poor thing will breath its last after 100th closing of lid, if you carry it around.

Good display though.

Looks decent for the price!
Aluminum build instead of Plastic like Avita Pura (Ryzen 5 variant @ 30-33k)
Narrow bezels..FHD IPS Display
Comes with either intel i5/i7 10th gen or Ryzen 5 3500U/3700U
256GB/ 512GB/1TB SSD (SATA*)
Type-C Port for USB-Power Delivery (Like magicbook)
Fingerprint sensor
& Weighs Only 1.25kgs

Good competition to Honor Magicbook & Mi Notebook
Hopefully soon these shitty looter brands like HP,Lenovo,Acer,ASUS launches better products in that 40-50k price segment w/o too many compromises (Like highlighting only the CPU & cutting down cost on the rest*)
But unlike Magicbook (40k only for first flash sale?) this looks like final pricing..so many be you can wait for a while n decide (IF the first sale doesn’t have any exciting offers)

PS: This product deserves a hot deal thread!

They’ve used cheap plastic to cut down the cost
Even many reviewers mentioned the same but justified it quoting the cheaper price tag

Was it easy to disassemble & apply thermal paste?
When i got a HP Flagship laptop (portable)..i had similar issue (Many Spectre launches had it) but it was way too complicated so gave up fearing i would jeopardize the extended warranty i got here for a refurbished laptop (MR*) purchased in US

Yea bro, fairly simple. Just screws. Anybody trying to open this, be gentle. If the back didn’t lift after the screws been removed, don’t force it. Use the pry tool with minimal pressure. That backplate was one of the fragile ones I have seen. I’ve OCD in opening the devices that I buy. stuck_out_tongue

That being said, we need these brands and these cheap models to make sure the other ones won’t steal our pocket.

Cool
I managed to open the back plate with Philips screwdriver but there’s was this big black sticker pasted on the heat sink & removing that sticker + the heat sink was the only way to access the CPU confused
I think if there’s one con with these ultra-slim laptops is repair-ability on our own (thankfully its not w/ that Avita laptop)

It was kinda similar in Avita too. Accessing everything from backside is almost same with ultrabooks and laptops. But there are ultrabooks and some laptops, that will make everyone sweat to get into the cpu. There are these models which require heavy prying from the keyboard section to unscrew the board off the chassis. But those are built like tank.

AVITA LIBER V looks interesting. That sole reviewer in amazon must be talking about pura model.
https://www.amazon.in/AVITA-NS14A8INF562-MB-14-...

If the build is good, then it’s worthy to consider. Ryzen models must be coming in some attractive prices.

Probably from Xiaomi or Honor PR team stuck_out_tongue
or the usual incentive-hungry fake reviewer! (via amazon vine or early-reviewer program)

If anyone is planning to get the ASUS Vivobook 14 w/ Ryzen 5 3500U..be noted that it has one of the shittiest displays any laptop could’ve in that 35-40k price range
I did mention that long back..when i felt mi notebook 14 display (base variant*) is better than many laptops (priced ~50k) from HP,Dell,ASUS,Acer..
https://www.desidime.com/deals/mi-laptop-sale-o...

Even this guy..geekyranjit also says same..that the display on ASUS Vivobook 14 is one of the biggest drawbacks .. that Avita Pura (30-33k) laptop has much better display according to him (but build quality is poor*)
So if display is a priority to you, ASUS is out of question!

Looks like Avita Liber V14 is a solution to those Quality issues AVITA Pura series had…will have to see how the actual impressions/reviews turn out to be (Hope they got better with software optimization too*)
& Everything about magicbook seems to be good/great (Display,Build,Speakers,PCIe NVMe SSD,Performance, Keyboard + Trackpad, Battery life &Type-C Charging) except the fact that there is no backlight keyboard // Rare thing for a budget laptop //

Geeky Ranjit also said that Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 has good audio output. Since then I have loast faith in him.
@mrKool_JJ For several months we had to suffer from really bad audio output. No?
And yes, Asus’s display is really bad in this model.

May be.. he just compares stuff available in that similar price range
Also he isn’t saying that the audio output is just good..he says its great (really loud*)
Considering that he has used/reviewed a lot of laptops recently (which is usually not the case prior to lockdown)..these observations seem more than accurate to me

Arey bhai, audio levels were so low that you would have to crank the volume to at least 70-80%. Now the issue has been fixed with a lot of OTA updates. laughing Probably he takes money from the sponsors to make them look good.

5:46 I don’t think Geekyranjit listens to music. How can he experience depth in sound unless the volume is adequate. He kept on saying he used Audio Technica, Grado headphones and he got impressed.
XDA developers had an article on this https://forum.xda-developers.com/asus-zenfone-m...
Asus forums have been spammed on this.
The bug has resurfaced in recent Q updates https://zentalk.asus.com/en/discussion/26388/ma...

Yes. Initially it has tons of bugs but now i still feel if the battery optimization could be better than it would have been great. I too have vivo u10 with 5000mAh battery but that really is a monster as far as backup is concerned. sunglasses
I don’t have any issues with the performance since it’s SD 636 is a efficient/optimized processor.

The XDA article is dated Aug 18
Bug got fixed and resurfaced again with Q Update (April 22 this year)
Considering that he got a review unit (April 1st or 2nd week*)..don’t u think his software could be different than the one that had issues in August?
If i recall correctly..ASUS initially pushed software updates for this particular model every month..it could be one rogue update?
Also even my unit got delivered on May 8, 2018 (Almost 3 months time to that XDA article) // Not sure when people noticed this issue..for the first time //

PS: Those initial reviews are worthless (remember many reviewers mentioning the same multiple times*) ..considering that brands push new OTAs pretty quick to fix issues once the device gets publicly released
