Review: Lenovo ThinkPad W530 Mobile Workstation Laptop
24 November 2012
Conclusion: After all is said and done I think this would work as a portable workstation. It is powerful enough to accomplish all your tasks. With its powerful processor and graphics chip, the HD screen, and screen calibration capabilities it is setup to be a superb machine. I recommend you take a look at it the next time you are in the market.
Summary: If you're looking for a productivity powerhouse and don't mind a little bulk, the $1,599 ThinkPad W530 could be your best choice with its powerful processor, speedy discrete graphics and industry-leading keyboard and pointing devices. However, to get the most out of this notebook, you should configure it with the full HD screen, which really should come standard, but right now adds $200 to the price.
Pros: Industry-leading keyboard, Accurate touchpad, Strong performance, Good audio playback
Cons: Bulky, High-res screen not standard, Dim display, Mediocre webcam
