It's also a stylish notebook and fairly plain in its design. The keyboard is comfortable to use thanks to crisp, responsive keys, and there is also a number pad. However, the palm rest could use a little more space on the left side -- it's a couple of centimetres narrower than it should be. It's not a backlit keyboard.
The touchpad is huge and we didn't have any problems using it; although being an ELAN pad, it supports two-finger swipes instead of three-finger swipes, which we're used to.
