The included leather/PVC laptop sleeve is very stylish, and is definitely something a creative designer-type can carry around.

The minature sized DC power charger is small and light enough to be carried around as well, although the typical user probably won't need it during the daytime. When plugged in, there is a red/green charging indicator.


Expansion wise, we get the bare essentials from a pair of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports (direct from the Intel HM76 PCH), headphone jack, MMC/SD card reader, mini VGA and micro HDMI.

Dongles for regular D-Sub Analog VGA and Fast Ethernet (@#$% why no Gigabit) is also included in the package.


For the wireless/bluetooth radio, we get the fairly adept Intel Centrino® Advanced-N 6235 mPCIe module wired in a 2×2 antenna design. This also allows for WiDi support with compatible displays.
