The proper keyboard space is shared by a secondary display and keyboard together. The best thing about the laptop is despite having Screen Pad and Keyboard it doesn’t miss out the mousepad and feeling Incredible Right! The company sets the mouse pad on the very right of the keyboard. It works effectively to control the main screen of the laptop. Only the secondary display is touch sensitive and can be used just by touching it.

The second best thing which I loved most about this laptop is you have the power to view a picture on more prominent mode. Yes, it is possible now if want to open, and if you’re going to see the world map primarily it will display on the first screen only, but if you’re going to increase viewing experience, you can extend the map till the second screen quickly by using the touchpad.
