Design and Physical Appearance

Consumers will not be disappointed with the Satellite laptop’s sleek look.  After removing the product from the box it came in and setting the monitor in an upright position, it was evident that no traces of handprints were left behind.  Unlike flimsier laptop models that may be found in the market today, this one is highly durable.  I took notice of the fact that the keyboard produced no creaks as I typed.  Moreover, to test the sturdiness of the monitor, I closed it shut and repositioned it vertically several times.  I found that the both the laptop monitor and the screen itself remained fully intact with no residual scratches or squeaking sounds. The laptop weighs in at a modest 6.29 pounds, which makes it comfortable to position on one’s lap. 

Monitor and Graphics

The laptop’s monitor is physically sturdy and smooth around the edges.  It features a 15.4” diagonal widescreen TruBrite TFT LCD display at 1280x800 native resolution (with native support for 720p content).  Among the laptop’s most distinctive features is its dazzling image display, which is augmented by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950.  The satellite laptop generates high-quality imaging and picture displays that allow you to view pictures, videos, and other content with a clear presentation.

Keyboard

The 85-key keyboard is user-friendly and fairly handy.   As with most laptops, several shortcut buttons are adjacent the front part of the monitor, which gives the user easy access to several multimedia options.   In addition to that, a wide touchpad facilitates widescreen viewing and allows easier navigation of software windows.  The silver Vista compliant keyboard provides ample spacing between keys for ease and comfort during typing sessions.  Thus, the keys require the laptop user to exert minimal effort when stroking them.  For both fast and slow typists alike, typing on the keyboard can be done with relative ease. 

Sound

Sound performance on this laptop is phenomenal and should serve as a compelling reason to purchase the product.  The built-in speakers provide Realtek High-def audio.  The sound derived from the videos I played over the internet came in loud and clear.  A sound volume control dial is conveniently located on the front, lower side of the product, which saves the user time from having to adjust the volume via the operating system’s control panel.
