Product Specifications

The Satellite M500 offers also a touchpad with multi-touch control, which gives you more freedom than ever - the ability to pinch, swipe, rotate or scroll through images on the display with a brush of your fingers. That's convenience! The Satellite M500 laptop series features a unique LED keyboard with backlighting that lets you keep typing in low lighting conditions - like on an airplane or dim coffee shops. With support for full 1080p high-definition video and sound, the HDMI-CEC connection on these laptops lets you scale up your movies, music and games by tapping into a home theater and run the show with just a single remote control. So get the big-screen, big-speaker entertainment you've always wanted.
