Red-y to Rock

Red-y to Rock

Underneath its red exterior, the interior of the QOSMIO F60 also shares much of the same look and feel, which means that you will end up with a very smudged notebook unless you wipe it often to clear the fingerprints. The screen is also likewise glossy and reflective, but holds up well in terms of viewing angles.

Focusing on the bottom half of the clamshell notebook, we noted that the keyboard while pretty, isn't quite as glossy as the rest of the notebook, so at least you won't end up with a really ugly keyboard after heavy use. The trackpad wasn't too bad, and tracking wise, it seems similar to what you can get from most other notebooks. We still do recommend a mouse if you want to do heavy gaming though. The glossy palm rests however, aren't a good choice other than looking good when kept clean.

Audio wise, we're quite impressed, though the F60 lacks the subwoofer found on its bigger cousins. You do get decent sound quality from the harman/kardon speakers, so you're pretty much set if you want to watch movies on the move (and you may want to, thanks to the Blu-ray drive in this notebook).
