- built in light & volume control?

Years ago i had a thinkpad with a built in light. Just hit function and
another key and it came on. It also had a 'hard' volume control in the form
of a typical little dial switch.
Does anyone know of a laptop with those two features built-in? I could and
would go with a usb light if i could at least find a model with the hard
I have owned laptops by IBM, dell, toshiba, quantex & asus, and used many
others. I know these features are rare.
Re: built in light & volume control?
My Thinkpad has the light, but has 2 buttons for up and down volume.
These are almost useless, because they are software dependent and hence
operate from now to almost never as the processor load changes.
It is one of my biggest regrets that the old Acers, and one or two other
makes had real volume controls, but I can't find any low-end (ie
affordable) machines nowadays with this essential feature.
I also hate the lack of a knob for screen backlight brightness, but
that's less essential than the simple volume control that works when you
turn it, not when the software gets round to it.
