  • Excellent:
  • Good:
  • Average:
  • Bad:


  • Multitouch screen responds to fingers and stylus, Quick performance keeps up with nearly anything.
  • Standard-voltage processors replace low-volt ones. When used in tandem, the two batteries delivered outstanding battery life. Lightweight. Ruggedized for business travel. Sleekest looking tablet.
  • Great specs, thin design when closed.


  • Mediocre battery life, Mediocre image brightness and contrast.
  • Pointing stick is stiff. Very small touchpad. Screen isn't bright enough. Extended battery ($180) and expansion base ($250) are very pricey options.
