A very good example, I have more than one image editing programs opened together with the internet browser, Firefox 5 and a few tabs for website, iTunes playing, all at once, and it runs great without performance reduction issues.
The i3 CPU combined with 4GB RAM could handle all of those multitasking flawlessly.

I really like how the keys are placed and spaced out nicely and also the keys give you a pleasing sound whenever you type.
