Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad W550s 20E2-000PGE

78.6% Lenovo ThinkPad W550s Workstation Review | Notebookcheck
Surprise! Lenovo expands its W-series with an ultra slim mobile workstation, which can set some new records right away. It benefits from components like the first professional chip from Nvidia's Maxwell generation, a generous battery capacity and many typical business features. Our review shows you what else we like about this workstation.

The Lenovo ThinkPad W550s is an unusual beast of a machine: it's the engineering and CAD laptop for road warriors who put battery life at a premium. The W550s succeeds at that with very long battery life with the 6 cell rear battery, and the laptop is more portable than most mobile workstations. The keyboard is classic ThinkPad, which is to say superb and it has plenty of key travel.

Review: Lenovo W550s — an ultraportable workstation
Source: Slashgear English
That's not to say the W540 isn't a durable machine, only that the W550s, when held in one's hands, feels more robust. The performance is spot-on for those with demanding needs, as well, and the battery life eclipses what you'd get from many competing workstation laptops. As such, if you need the level of power offered by the W550s, you can't go wrong with it. Prices start at $1,133.10.

Comment

Model: The Lenovo ThinkPad W550s 20E2-000PGE is a mobile workstation packed with capabilities yet looking sleek and discreet. Design is kept simple with the classic ThinkPad design such as a clean lines, the iconic high-quality keyboard with Trackpoint combo, the UltraNav Touchpad and hints of red highlights against the dark grey textured finish. Even the top cover is minimalistic in looks with a tiny Lenovo and ThinkPad branding at the corners. Inside is what that counts with a workstation and the Lenovo ThinkPad W550s 20E2-000PGE certainly delivers with an Intel Core i7-5500U processor clocked at 2.4 GHz, 16 GB DDR3L 1600MHz RAM, a NVIDIA Quadro K620M GPU and a 512 GB SSD.

Interacting with user is a beautiful matte 15.5 inch 3K display panel with superb contrast and good color accuracy. Audio quality is impressive with inbuilt stereo speakers and a Realtek ALC3232 sound chip. Other features on the Lenovo ThinkPad W550s 20E2-000PGE include three USB 3.0 ports, a mini Display port, a VGA port, a card reader, Bluetooth 4.0, an HD 720 webcam and a backlit keyboard. Under the laptop is a docking connector that attaches to the ThinkPad Ultra Dock which greatly extends the laptops capabilities. Battery life on the Lenovo ThinkPad W550s 20E2-000PGE is good with a 6-cell pack and the entire device weighs in at 2.32 kg.

NVIDIA Quadro K620M: Workstation graphics card based on the 28 nm GM108 Maxwell chip with 384 shaders and a 64-bit memory interface.

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.  


5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.50":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.41 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


79.3%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
