HD LED-backlit TFT LCD
The EasyNote TE notebook comes with a high-definition 15.6" HD LCD display that presents crystal-clear imagery and text, while LED-backlit technology enables the display to consume less power.

Top customer reviews
I switched on and away I went, found it very easy to operate as I had previously had a Windows 8 laptop. The one thing I found other reviewers had remarked on, was the fact that there is no light to indicate number lock is switched on. My password uses quite a few numbers but am on auto pilot now and don't find this a problem at all, as it does bleep when the number lock is pressed. Love this laptop and love the look of it too.
The machine does everything that I need, very nifty for quite a low priced laptop.
I looked around the shops here in Spain first before I bought this but cannot fault the service of Amazon and would always choose Amazon.
of Hard Drive which it makes it more efficient.
I would recommend to anyone who would like this notebook at a reasonable price with it's many features.
I love the laptop itself - it is a good size and weight, and for a budget laptop it feels very well constructed. I certainly don't feel as though I have compromised in buying from the lower end of the range. The touchpad / mouse is large and positioned off-centre, which for me as a right-hander works very well. I can sit comfortably and rest my smallish hand fully on the laptop while browsing which is much less tiring than using other smaller touchpads in the centre of the laptop. The keys on the keyboard seem larger than average, and I can type comfortably. The number pad is great as it means I can type in the same way as I would using a desktop.
The lid flexes slightly when opening, and I would recommend opening from the centre and not a corner. This isn't a huge problem, but it is the one reminder that this is a lower end laptop. The battery is discreet and sits under the hinge, and the whole thing feels reasonably cool in operation.
The major issue I have with this purchase is not the laptop itself, but Windows 8. This has proven to be a massively frustrating operating system to use, and has heavily marred my experience of this new machine. Something simple such as finding and using the calculator function is impossible with this system, and don't even bother trying to download MS Office software for word processing! It is a huge shame, because the laptop is really only as good as the operating system that runs on it for most people (like me) who are not IT experts, and based on this alone I would hesitate to recommend this laptop to a friend.
I would love to see this laptop offered with a range of operating systems.
A last word on packaging - I doubt this would affect anyone's buying decision but this laptop comes in sensible, minimal yet secure packaging, and even has a carry handle. If you are someone who prefers bricks and mortar shopping - this is one item you could easily and comfortably carry home.
