Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds-2500

80% Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
It may only appeal to those with big, specific demands and bigger wallets, but the Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds' complement of unique features (like its RGB-LED backlit screen with built-in hardware colorimeter, secondary display and integrated Wacom tablet) means it has no competition. Considering it's also powerful, very well-built and offers every connection you could want along with surprisingly decent battery life, it truly deserves its title of 'mobile workstation'.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800M:

Professional high-end workstation graphics card with certified drivers. Because of its 96 shader cores, the Quadro FX 2800M is similar to the GeForce 9800M GT but is produced in 55nm and features a higher core clock.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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.  


820QM:

The Core i7-820QM is a high-end quad core CPU for laptops that clocks due to the Turbo Mode from 1.73-3.06 GHz. Therefore, the processor combines the advantages of fast single core CPUs and slow quad-core CPUs. Hyperthreading allows the simultaneous use of 8 Threads in parallel.

17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

4.1 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


Lenovo: Lenovo Group Limited is China's largest and the world's fourth largest personal computer manufacturer.
