It works great for me, but I hunt & peck, so I'm definitely not a typist! The keys and especially the finger pad seem quite sensitive; about my only objection is occasionally when I hit the "e" key the edge of the "r" key seems to hook my finger-I have no such problem with other keys, nor with my keyboard at work?
I suggest buying a 17.3 laptop with even more features just to be on the safe side. I have another 17.3 inch and it works perfectly in this regard for video chat rooms. As I use Skype video calls it work great. Another alternative you can buy a Logitech webcam that has 1080p. This has a great rating and I am purchasing it soon. Well later and Best Regards.
