Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds Mobile Workstation

0 thumbs up



Synopsis:  The Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds is a rather unique product, targeted squarely at mobile professionals who require the power, features, and performance of workstation-class machine on the go. We previously evaluated the standard ThinkPad W700 and praised the system for its performance and stand-out integrated features, like a Wacom Digitizer Tablet and X-Rite Color Calibrator. The ThinkPad W700ds takes all of the features offered by the W700 and ads a secondary, slide-out display, which increases monitor real-estate by 39%.

The machine we received for evaluation was outfitted with 4GB of RAM, a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9300, an NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700 1GB GPU, and dual Hitachi hard drives running in RAID 0 configuration. Its sale price? $6,209.00 as configured. ThinkPad W700ds pricing ranges from just over $3000 though, to approximately $8000 for a fully loaded configuration.

Yeah, I'm not much of a bling guy but I do need to get me a new watch! 

The W700ds is pretty sweet too. If I were to get a desktop replacement machine, that would be my rig.

Even though I don't think the laptop itself has a stylish look, it is quite something. I really like that second monitor. It can come really handy.
