The author is grateful when you continuously write the documentation of a few hours when you no longer have to from time to time to see that weird hair.

Keyboard and Touchpad

The keyboard of this laptop is very good, full-size keys and a comfortable layout, arranged in a narrow strip of the right side of the home, pg up, pg dn, end four buttons, and the fn key full-size design, in addition to the Windows key is located between fn and Ctrl keys, very comfortable.
