The base of the X600 has a matt surface.
Below the keyboard there is a row of very informative status lights.
The Fn key is needed to activate shortcut keys.
The touch control panel is flush with the chassis.
There are stickers that detail the X600's specifications.
These include the Intel 45nm ULV CPU and ATI HD4330 discrete graphics card labels.
The power button is at the top left. It blinks with a white light when the power is on.
The larger keyboard does not have the X340's problem with mushy keys in some places.
The X600 keyboard is significantly more comfortable to use than the X340.
The primary display on the X600 is a 15.6" mirror-surface LCD with a resolution of 1366x768.
The 1.3M webcam and microphone are located in the middle of the top margin above the screen.
The battery is a 5400mAh 60Wh 6-cell unit that fits flush into the chassis and does not stick out.
This is where the battery fits into the notebook. With the battery's size, it should offer better endurance.
The I/O ports on the right side of the machine are:
Card Reader/ Audio In/Out/ USB 2.0 x 2/ Power In
D-Sub output/ RJ45 network port/ HDMI output/ Card Reader.
The I/O ports on the left side of the machine are:
D-Sub output/ RJ45 network port/ HDMI output/ USB 2.0/eSATA port.
There are air vents underneath on the left and right sides and there are four loudspeakers, one at each corner.
The X600 uses these to create a surround sound system.
The bottom of the chassis opened up. (Doing this voids the original manufacturer warranty so if a users needs to upgrade something, the Laptop must go back to the dealer.)
The CPU heat sink is on the right side.
Two copper tubes connect to the chipset and graphics chip.
The two DDR2 SO-DIMM slots are on the left. Up to 4GB of memory is supported.
