The camera controls are located on the right margin of the screen, next to the integrated microphone which is turned on with a separate button. The buttons are software-based, though, meaning that they only work when the appropriate Windows-based utility is running.
Another programmable button is located above the keyboard, on the left. It browses through the PowerGear power-saving modes. Next to it is a mechanical switch of the wireless adapter.
The Power button with blue LED-based highlighting is in the left corner. The LED isn’t very bright, so it won’t be distracting even in darkness.
The indicators of the notebook’s On/Off status and of the battery charging are located on the lid, near the battery module. It means that they are not visible when the lid is open. An extended set of indicators (HDD activity, optical drive activity, wireless connection activity) can be found on the left of the top panel.
The lid is held with magnetic pads, so there is no lock at all. The camera’s fastening stands out a little against the front edge of the case and may be used as a lever to open the notebook up.
