For maximum typing comfort, the precision engineered ErgoLift hinge automatically tilts the keyboard to an optimal typing angle when the lid is opened. This also creates space under the laptop for extra airflow.

For easy data entry, there’s the productivity-enhancing ASUS NumberPad 2.0. This is a large dual-function touchpad with an integrated LED-illuminated full-size numeric keypad. Simply tapping the icon on the touchpad turns the digital NumberPad on and off.
