Reviews for the Motion J3500

80% Motion Computing J3500 tablet PC review

Motion Computing's latest tablet PC offers a specification to match most commercial laptops, but puts it into a rugged slate format for use in challenging environments. The ability to use gesture inputs as well as a stylus in Windows 7 makes it more usable than earlier Motion tablets.

A versatile and reasonably priced rugged tablet PC, but the battery life is a little disappointing.

Undoubtedly well-designed, with a quality touchscreen and many neat features, but battery life could be better.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


540UM:

The Core i5-540UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 2 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


71.33%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
