The strong casing is made from the magnesium alloy and measures 12.4 x 8.9 x 0.3-0.6 inches. It sports a backlit and spill resistant keyboard with well spaced island-style keys and a highly accurate touchpad with two discrete buttons below it.

Incorporated with a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, a Kensington lock slot, a standard Ethernet port, HDMI out, a full size VGA port, audio jack and an SD card reader, the Portege Z835 comes with a battery that backs the device for nearly 7 hours on continuous surfing over Wi-Fi.
