Isn’t the graphic realistic?
You can create the graphic quite easily using basic auto shapes tools in PowerPoint. The laptop graphic is made of 6 parts. They are:
We will learn to build the graphic part by part in this article.
Parts 1 & 2: Monitor Screen
Part 1 is ‘rounded rectangle’ filled with grey color. Part 2 is plain ‘rectangle’ with inner shadow. We removed the outline for both the shapes and placed part 2 inside part 1.
We added sheen to give the screen a more realistic look (You may refer to our tutorial on ‘creating sheen’ – to learn how to add sheen to objects).
Draw part 3:Keyboard
Part 3 is created using ‘Trapezoid’ tool under ‘Basic shapes’ in auto shapes menu. We moved the yellow handle towards the centre to get a narrow top.
Draw part 4: Laptop Base
Part 4 is made using ‘Round same side corner rectangle’ tool under ‘Rectangles’ in auto shapes. Once you draw the shape move the yellow handle towards the centre to get maximum curvature. Then go to Arrange -> Rotate -> Flip vertical to get the shape for part 4. Fill the shape with grey color.

Part 5 is made of ‘rounded rectangle’ flattened out after moving the yellow handle for full curvature. Part 6 is nothing but a circle drawn using ‘oval’ tool while holding ‘shift’ tab. The circle is filled with green color and the outline is removed.
When we put together all the 6 parts we get our laptop graphic. We added some reflection to the bottom portion of the laptop for aesthetic appeal:
