operate any software in order to check what is a CD-ROM and a PC Card in
a note pc.

The user often forgets to take out a CD-ROM and a PC Card in a note pc
becuase the external appearance of a note pc is same even if a CD-ROM
and a PC Card is inserted or not.

below a palm rest of a note pc and a palm rest and so forth is
transparent.
