The keyboard may be a tad cramped for some people, but the palm rests are spacious and comfortable and the touchpad, though small, gets the job done.
A major selling point for the Portege R835 is the price (sub-$900). Competitors such as the Samsung 900X, the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 and the Macbook Air all go for well over $1,000. But what may truly seal the deal for buyers is the Portege’s battery life: You’ll get eight hours. EIGHT HOURS. Damn impressive.
