An overview of the laptop with the excellent WSXGA+ screen

 

They keyboard and the trackpad

 

A close up of the trackpad. ASUS’s attempt at trying to streamline
the buttons didn’t quite make it, instead, it made the buttons stiffer.
Therefore more efforts has to be spent on this area to make the buttons softer
and more ergonomic like what IBM has been offering on their ThinkPad notebooks.

 

The 5 hotkeys: Power4 Gear +, Email, Internet, Touchpad Lock.
Ther Power 4 Gear+ button will allow you to launch Asus’ power management utility
instantaneously. The touchpad lock key is pretty useful when you’re using a
mouse and the touchpad is obstructing you from typing properly.

 

The Audio DJ hotkeys that allows music DVDs and CDs to be played
without turning the notebook on to save power.

 

The powerful built-in 1.5W stereo speakers that delivers quite
audible sound from the notebook.
