Lenovo ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation

Digital Pro Sound
19 May 2009
  • Excerpt: It's not very often that a notebook computer has the potential to be a game changer in the market. The routine of the notebook manufacturers are fairly predictable. Intel releases a newer, faster and lower power CPU, and the manufacturers build yet a new notebook around it and call it the next best thing.

Lenovo ThinkPad W700 review

Techworld
19 December 2008
  • Summary: The ThinkPad W700 may look understated - and it's a bit of a kitchen-sink approach to computing - but it's a top-flight notebook. For on-the-go graphics artists, or those looking for the ultimate mobile workstation, it's hard to beat.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad W700

Geek.com
23 October 2008
  • Excerpt: For the last few years we have heard the term “desktop replacement” used to describe notebooks 15.4-inches and larger. Recently, most especially this year, we are finally starting to see notebooks that can be described as workstation replacements. These aren’t renamed gaming computers either–when companies like Lenovo and HP release portable workstations, they really mean it.

Lenovo Thinkpad W700 Mobile Workstation

HotHardware
13 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Lenovo set out to build the ultimate mobile graphics workstation with the ThinkPad W700.  And in comparison to every other similarly classed notebook we could find, we think they have succeeded. No other notebook comes close to offering the level of raw performance, pixel precision, and configuration flexibility which is offered on the W700.
  • Pros: Extremely Powerful, High Performance, Flexible Hardware Configurations, Optional Wacom Tablet, Beautiful Screen w/ Color Correction
  • Cons: Expensive - Up to $6,500, Power Hungry at Full Load, Massive Size Makes Mobility Difficult, Roughly 10 Pounds w/ Power Adapter

Lenovo Thinkpad W700

18 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Let’s face it, the only real difference between a mobile workstation and gaming notebook has been the sticker and GPU drivers. Lenovo’s ground-breaking W700 changes that with a slew of features that truly make it worthy of being called a workstation notebook. But it’s not just about the W700’s 2.53GHz Core 2 Extreme Q9300 quad core or its Quadro FX 3700M with 1GB frame buffer alone.
  • Pros: Color calibrator, Wacom tablet, quad-core and high color gamut screen!
  • Cons: Big and bulky and the power brick is truly a brick.

REVIEW: Lenovo ThinkPad W700

BCW
20 August 2009
  • Summary: Design The wholly-black ThinkPad W700 (410×310x41mm, 3.76kg) is an amazing piece of engineering and offers the mobile workstation market some much-needed innovation. The downside is that the machine looks butt ugly – come on Lenovo you still design computers like it’s the 80s! – and I was disappointed with the overall build quality. Most noticeable was the amount of flex in the screen’s lid. In fact, I’ve never quite seen so much movement in a 17-inch display before.

  • Summary: Lenovo's ThinkPad W700 desktop replacement (and desktop-size) laptop incorporates many of the latest mobile workstation features while also packing in a few unusual - and very welcome - goodies for the graphic artist or CAD designer.

Lenovo ThinkPad W700 - Old School Charm

Hardware Zone
1 December 2008
  • Conclusion: We've been dying to get our hands on the dual-screen version of the Lenovo ThinkPad W700 for ages, but alas, this was not meant to be as Lenovo didn't have appropriate units available for this region. With that said, the single screen version shares pretty much the same specs and based on what we've been testing, the machine actually does deliver the goods. Hardware performance was top notch, and the build and feel of the unit was excellent.
