The HP spill-resistant keyboard is designed using a thin layer of Mylar film under the keyboard and a drain system that funnels fluid through a hole in the bottom of the notebook. This minimizes the risk of damage to sensitive components underneath. The 101/102-key compatible keyboard features an industry standard, full-pitch key layout with desktop keyboard features, such as the isolated inverted-T cursor control keys, editing keys, both left and right control and alt keys, and 12 function keys. U.S. and International key layouts are available. Other features include an integrated numeric keypad, hotkeys for instant access to power conservation, brightness, and other features, 19 mm x 19 mm key pitch (center-to-center spacing), 2.0 mm stroke, and comfort-dished keycaps.
HP DuraKeys is a clear coating applied over the notebook keyboard that helps protect the finish and the printed characters on the keys. HP DuraFinish helps protect the finish on the keyboard deck, graphics, and icons from normal wear and tear.
HP Night Light shines directly on keyboard for low-light conditions.

1: Processor speed denotes maximum performance mode; processors will run at lower speeds in battery optimization mode.
2: Intel's numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.
3: Memory bus runs at a maximum of 1066 MHz.
Due to the non-industry standard nature of some third-party memory modules, we recommend HP branded memory to ensure compatibility. If you mix memory speeds, the system will perform at the lower memory speed. Full availability of 4GB or more of memory requires a Windows 64-bit operating system or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, the amount of usable memory is dependent upon your configuration, so that above 3GB all memory may not be available due to system resource requirements.
4: Outdoor View is an option available only with both Digitizer and Multi-touch that provides enhanced viewing:
  • 12% increase in front of screen display brightness with no loss of battery life
  • Up to 235% increase in contrast, resulting in better viewability, at wide viewing angles
  • 25% less specular reflections in bright light
  • 91% less diffuse reflections in bright light
  • 67% more contrast in bright sunlight
This data is based on typical measurements by the display manufacturer. Actual measurements may vary from panel to panel.
