The dream tablet pc has ever come true

  • Excerpt: I know that some people need a little convincing with something as radical as the concept of tablet computing. But for me, Portege 3500 is fast enough to do some processing without hassles. Thin-and-light notebook is a dream machine that capable stylus processing that quite neat. It has a decent processor-a 1.33-GHz PIII-M-and a 12.1-inch screen. There's a great keyboard, a capacious 40GBhard drive, and 1,024MB of RAM.
  • Pros: Thin and light notebook, powerfull enough to do some processing
  • Cons: Some areas of the touch screen might not be accessible at a certain time

Toshiba Portege 3500 - Best of breed, but heavy

maxmidnig..., Ciao
19 May 2005
  • Excerpt: Over the past few months, I have been evaluating and rolling out tablet PC's across my organisation within the Health industry. My evaluation has covered the HP Compaq TC1100, the Motion M1200, the Fujitsu Stylistic ST4120, and the Toshiba Portégé 3500. What follows is a brief discussion of the Toshiba Portege 3500 which I hope will give users some guidance and prove informative.
  • Pros: Robust, powerful, functionally superior to the competition .  All you could ask for from a tablet pc .
  • Cons: Can get hot, but nothing to worry about, battery life shorter than with other models (3 . 5hrs), heavier than the competition making it awkward for the true mobile user .

Great Laptop at a reasonable price

  • Excerpt: Bought on of there last week. A great all rounder. Good screen size, enough memory to run most applications. Good battery time. But, after experiencing a major problem when I wanted to use the recovery disk, I noticed that it does not have a CD-Rom drive. Altough it's available to buy from Toshiba, it's priced at over 300 GBP so I ordered one from EBay US for 99 dolars. The advantage of being able to use the screen vertically is a plus.
  • Pros: Very light therefore portable
  • Cons: No internal CD - ROM or Floppy Disk Drive

  • Excerpt: I've had a Portégé for about six months now, after being stitched up to the tune of £1,200 on eBay buying one which never arrived. My wife felt so sorry for me that she sent me off to PC World to buy one. What a machine! It has two basic modes of operation - Laptop and Tablet. I'll describe each of them for you, Dear Reader... Laptop Mode This is using the machine like a normal laptop.

Great All-Rounder

  • Excerpt: I got given a portege early last week as it's previous owner managed to scramble the hard disk. This is where the disadvantage of no CD-Rom or Floppy Drive comes it. To utilise the recovery CD I had to remove the Hard Drive and mount it in another PC as the only CD-Rom drive you can boot from costs over £300! That aside, the PC itself is very, very slick. The keyboard is full sized, and has a nice tactile feedback.
  • Pros: All the advantages of a Laptop with the features of a Tablet PC .
  • Cons: No internal CD Rom or Floppy Drive .

Der Kleine für hier und da...

  • Summary: Seit nun gut einem Jahr nenne ich dieses kleine Notbook mein eigen und bin super zufrieden. Für mein Studium benötigte ich ein Notebook und schaut mich lange auf dem Markt um und entschied mich dann für einen erschwinglichen Tablet PC, einen Convertible. Was soviel bedeutet, wie einerseits normaler Laptop und zusätzlich kann man das Display drehen und wie auf einen Block schreiben. 1.

dim899, Ciao
22 March 2004
  • Summary: A la base, un Tablet PC" est un PC portable sans clavier! Celui-là dispose des deux puisque l'on peut emboiter et enlever quand bon nous sommes!(en tournant l'écran sur lui-même, vous transformez votre PC portable en Tablet PC) Bref un vrai Tablet PC - PC portable!!!! Il tourne sous Windows XP et son stylet vous permet d'écrire directement sur l'écran tactile (lol normal pour un Tablet PC).
  • Pros: pratique, novateur au design qui en séduira plus d'un
  • Cons: encore très cher !  !  !

Le meilleur de la première génération de Tablet

driard, Ciao
18 February 2004
  • Summary: J'ai le Portégé 3505 (quasiment le même que le 3500) depuis fin 2002, peu après sa sortie, et j'en suis globalement satisfait. Je ne détaille pas sa config, elle est déjà détaillé dans un autre commentaire sur le même PC. Il est compact, intègre de très nombreuses fonctionnalités et ports de connexion qui simplifient l'utilisation des appareils photos et autres walkman (lecteur Compact Flash et SD intégré), Wifi, BlueTooth + 2 USB.
  • Pros: ultra portable, fonction stylo, qualité écran, tout intégré
  • Cons: autonomie, résolution écran, carte graphique, puissance
