The keyboard of the original model was also one of its strong points, thanks to the touch of its keys with a slightly concave finish and its 1.3 mm travel, which transmitted a very good response with each press, which made the typing experience It was one of the best I’ve been lucky enough to experience with a laptop in its class.
