    Hi, this is not a LAPTOP, it is a tablet with sync Bluetooth Keyboard. You can remove the Keyboard easily, so this device come under new category ‘Laptab’. You have to correct it.

    I am really disappointing with the specs. With all the hype going around I thought Micromax would match the Asus Transformer.Laptab. Celron and 32GB storage is hugely disappointing. Maybe I ws expecting too much from Micromax

    The laptab is also equipped with a micro SD slot, USB 3.0 and HDMI ports. It seems like a great device will be priced at a decent 500$. The tablet feature of the LapTab seems to be amazing however the performance as a laptop might not be top notch.
