Powerful workstation in size of a laptop.

  • Summary: Higher performance than same priced new models, many interfaces, excellent chassis (durable, though light), easy to add/replace parts. Last model (T520, W520...) with the old-style Lenovo keyboard, which has much better layout than following T530 models. The keyboard light is almost useless on this model but this is of no concern to me. This model supports m-SATA SSD, which is great for use as a system drive.

Fast, beautiful screen and truly customizable desktop replacement.

  • Summary: I purchased a new W520 on an Amex member deal and love it. It's a beast; heavy & large, but fast and a great screen. However, the one I purchased was a Dual-Core and so could only handle 16 GB of RAM. I wanted a true desktop replacement for what I do. I am a tech consultant and run several VMWare guest OS's as well as MS's Visual Studio 2010.

Best notebook money can buy

Mandy, Amazon

  • Summary: The Lenovo ThinkPad W-series are really the best money can buy when it comes to notebooks. I love the 36 month warranty as well. Compared to the W500 I owned before this W520 the sound volume is too low however. I also feel the W500 was built with stronger materials. The display is a huge improvement however when it comes to brightness.

Good service!!!

  • Summary: I bought this laptop last month but i didn't receive it yet, maybe the fedex driver sent it to the wrong address, suddenly i complained to the seller. Less than 3 days as the seller promised to me, they sent me another same laptop with extra security. Little bit annoying because the fedex want me picked up the package to the fedex office at that day. I received the laptop and it was completly what i want. As i saw the review before, the charger is heavy and big.

Workhorse

Hieu D. Dao, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this as a replacement for a 4 year old portable Dell workstation. Initially, I was concerned about the W520 as being too big and too heavy, but much to my surprise, it's lighter than my old 14" laptop. This machine is a monster number crunching machine. It runs my Autocad, Solidworks,several specialized engineering programs, and the slew of standard Microsoft Office products, all at the same time without breaking a sweat.

Great multi use notebook

  • Summary: I got this for my wife for Christmas and she loves it. It's very versatile, it does everything she has loaded flawlessly. Pro's: its fast with photo rendering in Lighthouse, of course any business application, video editing. web surfing, Itunes a few games, you name it. The screen is bright and the key board set up is great. Con's: my one complaint is that when I bought it, in the description it said it had a lite keyboard, the only thing my wife said she really wanted.
