On top of enjoying 720p video content, the laptop also features an integrated 1-megapixel camera with microphones for HD web-conferencing.
Encased in a brushed-aluminum chassis in graphite silver or fire red, the laptop comes equipped with a full-sized Chiclet keyboard, a multi-touch gesture touchpad allowing users to fluidly navigate through the Windows 8 OS, and a cool-to-the-touch aluminum palm rest to ensure comfort for users.
