Our review partner DesignTechnica reviews the stylish Sharp M4000 Notebook.

"Aesthetically, the M4000 is a beauty. The brushed aluminum motif is used on all surfaces of the case, and gives users a glimpse of what an Apple Intel Powerbook might look like. Mouse, power and wireless buttons have a faux chrome coating, which historically has not stood up to the test of time/usage. The shiny coating also looks slightly gaudy rather than the ostensibly intended classy. The full-size keyboard feels nice and snappy and continues with the metallic theme using a gray, reflective coating or plastic. The screen is covered by a highly reflective coating, similar to that of other manufacturers.
This helps increase the contrast ration and make the screen more readable in daylight (as long as the angle of the screen isn't in a glare prone orientation).
What we did notice, and it took away from the beauty of the M4000, was a lack of port coverings. More specifically, all ports are black and left open to the damaging elements. At 3.8 pounds, the unit is incredibly light, and will fit comfortably in any laptop bag. "
