Well, Portal 2 (spoilers, I guess) takes place a hella long time after the first one, right? So while she doesn't get any older physically, wouldn't she technically be a hundred or something?

I'd ask her, and inevitably her response would be "apple". So I say she's apple years old.

Late 200s, early 300s.

she was in stasis. age is somewhat meaningless after one has experienced time stop completely, i would think

I always thought of her as an early 30s woman.

Plus she seems to have lost at least half a decade after being in stasis, so either the stasis machine dyes hair REALLY well and has a comprehensive plastic surgery mechanism, or it's the same thing that substituted her surgically replaced knee for a bunch of high-heel boots...

@moywar700: she looks much healthier as the story progresses

Throwing story aside and going by appearance, she's 30-something in Portal 1, and mid-20s in Portal 2. She's a mute Benjamin Button.

Who cares. Seriously, who cares? And why?

I would have said mid 30s during Portal one. But they sexed her up a bit in Portal 2, and made her look more early to mid 20s.
