The keyboard is not perfect, but much better than keyboards of many other notebooks included into this review.
What pleased me most was the properly designed block of cursor-controlling keys:
And this additional block of navigational keys:
The touchpad feels like IBM’s. It has the same positioning accuracy and a pair of superb, smooth buttons which are a real pleasure to touch.
Despite its plain appearance, it is the best touchpad in terms of ergonomics among the tested notebooks. The Power and Wi-Fi buttons are equipped with LED indicators:
The Power button is designed properly, too. It is rather large and you quickly find it at a first glance over the notebook.
The screen is much better than the one of the above-described Acer Aspire 3003NLC, the drawbacks being the not-very-high maximum brightness, small horizontal viewing angles, average speed, and not-very-saturated colors. The rest of the parameters like the uniformity of backlight, the reproduction of the skin color, etc., are quite satisfactory. In fact, the nx6110 features one of the best LCD screens among the reviewed notebooks (the screen of the Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V2030 can only be compared with it), but dynamic games do not look very good on it. On the other hand, the notebook doesn’t have a discrete 3D graphics accelerator, so 3D gaming is not possible anyway. You shouldn’t also buy this notebook if you work in brightly lit rooms – this LCD matrix doesn’t look good under strong external lighting.
