Commenting on the launch,

understanding of consumer demand and need and matching it with our
strong credentials in the Indian market. While the laptop category is
not growing very rapidly today, we believe the key barrier is to give a
high performance, well designed product at an accessible price. We have
always strived to close the gap between consumer needs and available
devices by bringing alive the best technology innovations and we believe
we have done it with Ignite.”
