It also features the bells and whistles we've come to expect - USB 3.0, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and hardwired 10/100 Ethernet, along with an integrated 720p webcam and microphone. It also includes a premium keyboard with 10-key pad, touch pad with multi-touch control and a memory card reader that supports Secure Digital, SDHC, SDXC, miniSD, microSD, and Multi Media Cards (shared slot; may require adapter for use).
Another great feature is the loaded software, which includes both utility and entertainment applications, like Internet Explorer 10, Microsoft Office Trial and Norton Internet Security 2013 (30-day trial subscription).
