The buttons along with the touchpad also work softly, they will never cause you to push them with more force. Although, using the TrackPoint feature is far better than the touchpad. Being a luxurious laptop, you will find the trackpad in the center of the keyboard.

The trackpad is installed to let you control the cursor with more ease. Without moving the fingers downward from the keyboard, you can control the cursor as per your own convenience. This feature helps to increase the typing speed of individuals.

The sound-producing quality is also at its best. The produced audio out of this model will be clear and loud. You don’t need to the headphones or the speakers to get better sound quality, it will make a clear and loud sound that you will be loving to hear again and again.

Although, the produced audio becomes more loud and clear when the speakers are exposed.

Unlike the audio, the camera has some limitation. With its 720p camera, you can’t get the quality images. For the average quality images, the camera is good. But don’t expect its camera to produce images as other professional cameras do.

For the online conferencing and the meetings, the audio will help you to understand the message clearly of other members and you can also let them understand your vision more easily. When it comes to the camera, you can use the think shutter to avoid showing your low-quality images to others.

It’s better to use the external webcam for better results.

The price is higher but you can’t the laptop with the same price tag that offers the same features. The Laptops which are equipped with the same features cost more than this model.  That provides the best ratio for the price and the performance. if you can compromise on the average performing camera, then you don’t have to look for any other laptop.
