Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds

Lenovo's ThinkPad W701 is system that is deigned for a certain set of users. Graphics professionals and designers will appreciate its optional features that give it some of the best display, color and input features on the market. The problem is that the system already starts at a fairly high $2600 price tag and these extra features will increase the price. Outside of the targeted users, there are more affordable and equally power options available.

The Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds laptop feels solidly built. You'll have to lug the massive 8.97-pound system between big desks, but it's like carrying a powerful workstation almost anywhere. The battery lasts for about 2hrs 10 mins, a reasonable length for a portable with this much power and speed. Considering this machine's complete roster of ports and extras for content creators - including the colour calibrator, the Wacom tablet surface and the extra LCD screen - this high-end laptop seems equipped to help you complete any challenging job.

Aimed at content creators and engineers, this portable Goliath could replace desktop workstations, letting pros stay productive anywhere.It's hardly fitting to call this massive laptop a desktop replacement; it's a workstation alternative, able to take your most demanding applications anywhere. In addition to ridiculously fast performance, this laptop offers a built-in Wacom drawing tablet, a color-calibration tool, and even a second LCD. If you crunch real-time data on oil rigs or if you design jet engines while flying over the Atlantic, this could be your new PC. Anybody desiring one of the fastest, most tricked-out, and most costly portables around will find a great sidekick here.

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.  

920XM: Fastest Core i7 laptop CPU in 2009 but with a TDP of 55 Watt it is pretty power hungry. Due to the Turbo Mode, the CPU can run with up to 3.2 GHz. Because of the Extreme tag, the multiplier is not locked, and therefore the CPU is easy to overclock.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
