Quick, responsive, great keyboard, Only think I'd change is the cord which is causing problems the way it lays.

Looked around for a while for a small, portable laptop that still has a CD/DVD drive, and that can withstand being lugged around day-in, day-out. CNET and other popular review sources gave this machine top choices and many reviews argued that it was the best machine given factors of price, weight and performance. It's fast, lightweight, and has metal casing. I've had it for a couple months and so far, so great.

This laptop was purchased as a Christmas gift for my 14 year old daughter. This computer provides all the bang of a computer in a small, lightweight size comparable to the Mac Air. So far, she loves it!

Wanted a compact laptop to take on trips, vacations, etc. as well as to use at home, but wanted one that could handle tasks such as photo editing, etc. The P-81 seems to be just what we were looking for. My son also has a Toshiba laptop and has been very happy with it.
Laptop exceeds my expectations

I purchased a Portege R835-P81 for personal use while traveling. I travel a great deal and wanted a small easy to carry laptop that still has the computing power I need. Ths laptop exceeds my expectations. It is small and lightweight, easy to transport through airports from city to city. I also has the computer power I need for work and personal pleasure.
