Indeed, the TravelMate B1 (B118) might seem a bit too big for what it offers. However, its 11.6-inch display is surrounded by a lot of quality. Not only is the machine sturdy enough to withstand a lot of abuse, especially from younger individuals, but it is also very comfortable to use. Its keyboard is great, thanks to its long key travel and clicky feedback. Also, it features spill-resistance, for volumes of up to 330ml of water.
