Conclusion: It's cool, way cool! It's also light, relatively small (though average in thickness) and is built to last. While it's heavier than some other Tablets, it is exceptionally durable. The processing power, hard drive and memory (for the 3505 which has 512 megs of RAM) are enough for serious work.
Pros: Class-leading battery life, very good backlit keyboard.
Summary: As far as Tablet PCs go, the only indication that the Portege 3500 is one, and not a notebook, is the solid stainless steel and magnesium hinge centered under the display. This is the single point for rotating and flipping the screen over and down, and it locks into place with a satisfying 'snick'.
