To make typing easier and more comfortable, the 39.6 cm (15.6”), 35.6 cm (14”) V5 models include a full size keyboard with an 8% larger key cap area (15mm) than previous generation V5 notebooks, while the 29.5 cm (11.6”) model integrates the same size keyboard as found on a typical 13.3" model to optimize the typing experience even when on the move.
There is an option of quad- or dual-core AMD A-Series accelerated processors for all models.
For crystal clear viewing, the new V5 notebooks are available with a high definition (1366x768) or full high-definition (1920 x 1080) display with IPS technology, providing an amazing vibrant and wide viewing angle. Selected models include AMD Radeon HD8750 discrete graphics, four speakers and are supported by Dolby Home Theatre for crystal clear cinematic surround sound with less distortion.
