Packaging & Contents
The Hypersonic AG2 comes to you in a surprisingly small package, I included a CD in the pictures for easier size comparison.
A seperate cardboard box contains the required acessories.
The notebook is protected very well against shock or other damage by the white plastic foam and a clear plastic bag.
Sheets of plastic cover the paint job, so it won't be scratched during transportation.
Inside the package you will find:
- Notebook computer
- Windows Vista Home Premium
- User's Guide
- Personal letter from the Hypersonic CEO - yes it's personal. Says "Dear W1zzard"
- Software bundle: Nero, Power DVD, Drivers
- Soft cleaning cloth
- Thermal paste (uh.. why?)
- AC adapter + power cord
