Lenovo ThinkPad W520 Review

27 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The Lenovo Thinkpad W520 is a powerful workstation laptop that packs a lot of punch in a seemingly boring, utilitarian package. Haggling over the price allows a buyer to grab a good deal on this system with a powerful quad-core processor, a 500GB 7200RPM hard drive, 12GB of RAM, and a powerful GPU. The combination of tough ABS plastic and a metal substructure inspire confidence in the laptop’s ability to survive whatever is thrown at it.
  • Pros: Durability, Matte, 95% color gamut 1080p display, mSATA and Ultrabay drive options, allowing for up to two HDD/SSD and mSATA drives, Thinkpad keyboard, Portable for a 15” system, 7+ hour battery life, Decent price, Great support
  • Cons: The touchpad isn’t so good, Sound can only be described as “okay”

  • Summary: Takin' Care of Business. Lenovo ThinkPads of the W series are pure-bred professional laptops that have earned a reputation for powerful performance, above all in the area of graphics and computation-intensive office tasks.

  • Pros: Case, Keyboard, CPU Performance, Graphics Rendering, Video Decoding, ISV Certification, High-Contrast Display with Large Color Space, Variety of Features, Performance of Ports, Long Battery Life under Light Use, Accessories and Upgrade Options, Variety of Configurations Available, 36-Month Warranty, The strong points of older ThinkPads remain: the laptop performs considerably faster compared to older models and boasts a broad set of features.  Thanks to Optimus, the b...
  • Cons: Battery Life under Heavy Use, Access to Hardware Inside, Reduced Performance on Battery Power, High Price, System Noise, Relatively Heavy, Large, Heavy Power Supply, The same level of performance when on battery power, (at least) the option of a dedicated number pad, and a starting configuration that includes a full-HD screen.

Lenovo ThinkPad W520 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
25 April 2011
  • Summary: The ThinkPad W520 provides really strong workstation-level performance in a portable 6.2-pound package with amazing battery life, a gorgeous screen, and the industry's best keyboard. However, the $2,969 configuration we reviewed is pretty pricey for a laptop that doesn't include a solid state drive, though we highly recommend adding that as an option. The sound could also be better.
