    -Speakers
    -Camera
    -Optical Drive (bring a CD with you)
    -Audio ports (bring some headphones)
    -USB ports (bring a usb drive with you)
    -Mic
    -SD card slot (bring an SD with you)
    -Check the display for dead pixels, fading, tinting or any other imperfections.
    -Make sure wifi card works
    -Bluetooth
    -Check for any odd noises, like odd clicking from the HDD which could indicate a failing hard drive


    These are just a few, you could check a ton of things.
