Lenovo ThinkPad W530
Source: Inside HW English
If you don’t mind the somewhat larger dimensions and increased weight, Lenovo once again made a workstation that’s a dream come true for a business-oriented user who needs a powerful and specific hardware. There are few details that some users won’t like, but there are so many pros that will impress everyone and they make it a first pick for users that know to appreciate what ThinkPad is and what it represents for a long time.

The Lenovo ThinkPad W530 2447 is packed with useful ports and high-specification components. Build quality is more than adequate, but more bendy than we remember of ThinkPad workhorses. The out-of-the-box software experience is quite laughable but still par for the course for sponsored PCs. Our system did not impress with great responsiveness so if you’re spending this much we’d advise solid-state drive for storage. Battery life was poor, given the huge battery.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


3720QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1250 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
