Great buy

Masha B. "selenab", Amazon
6 October 2013
  • Summary: I've had used this laptop for 3 years now. College friends always get amazed at how light this laptop is compared to theirs. They get jealous. I carry this and my textbooks in my backpack and my bag is still lighter than my friends'. If you are on the go type of person, this is definitely a great buy for you because it is much better than netbooks,but more convenient to travel with than regular sized laptops.

LEMON! Screen casing cracks! DO NOT BUY!!

Oryanna Diem, Amazon
27 June 2013
  • Summary: With normal use the casing around the screen cracked to the point where the laptop is basically unusable. There are so many things to love about this computer, but the cheap quality of the casing and the terrible keyboard are total deal breakers. First, the case cracked on the sides where the resting pads are so that the computer does not bump together when you close it. Then both pads and the plastic behind them cracked and now there are holes.

Great Laptop

J. N. Sanders "Jnsanders", Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: I have had this laptop for over two years now. It has been an amazing computer for every minute and has held up wonderfully. I even had it oversees in the middle east for 7 months, where I used it extensively every single day. Even looking at it today after over two years of daily use it looks great! As stated in the description it is super thin, amazingly lightweight, and very fast. People are always surprised at how light and fast it is.

Fragile - requires duck tape

Eva Esparza, Amazon
20 December 2012
  • Summary: For the past 6 months or so, duck tape has been holding this thing together. The hinge broke. The other day I noticed another crack in the case at the opposite side of the duck taped hinge! The plastic used is extremely thin and fragile. I've never had this happen with other laptops I've owned: Fujitsu, Apple or Dell.

Great computer

ampcrank, Amazon
18 February 2012
  • Summary: I think this computer is great. It's lightweight, portable, battery life is good, screen resolution is good. It rarely freezes up, it's super-quick, has good video handling. The only thing I don't like about it is the sound quality coming from the speakers and the touchpad is a little unresponsive sometimes. Oh well, totally worth it and for $500 worth every penny.

Great but Fragile

Norfolk VA, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: I was very happy with my Portege R705-P35. It's light, fast, and fairly inexpensive. I erased mine and installed Windows 7 Professional from scratch. Also installed 8GB of RAM. I even used it as a VMware ESXi host temporarily running our Microsoft Exchange server for three days and no one noticed! From the start there were things I did not like but could live with given the excellent weight and 5-hour battery life.

Disappointed

Kenneth Kraemer, Amazon
11 August 2011
  • Summary: I am very disappointed with this purchase. I do not know whether it is the manufacturer or the retailer who is at fault. There was no instruction sheet or manual of any kind for the computer. Also, the computer was supposed to come with Microsoft Office installed, but it did not have Office and there was no disk enclosed with the computer. When I tried to install the software using the Software Key,I discovered that the key was for Windows--not Office.
