Another feature that will be appreciated by those who regularly enter numbers is NumberPad. When NumPad technology is enabled, the touchpad turns into a touch-sensitive numeric keypad.

The screen is suitable for videos thanks to its 16:9 format and Full HD definition.
In addition, the screen benefits from wide viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, thanks to its IPS technology.
