Lenovo Thinkpad W700 redefines "bigger-better-faster"

Nikonians with professional photography interests seeking the full-featured performance of a desktop workstation in a mobile notebook can now consider Lenovo's ThinkPad W700.

W700-350.jpgThis is the first Lenovo Thinkpad featuring a 17-inch display and that monster screen is just the tip of the iceberg.

Once you've tapped into the impressive base Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T9400 (2.53GHz 1066MHz 6MBL2) using the Windows Vista Business OS with a comfortable 2 GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 1067MHz SODIMM Memory (2 DIMM) to handle your most intensive graphic needs, you've still got a host of desktop options to add to this dream-mobile.

Imagine adding an Ultranav + FPR + Pantone Color Sensor + WACOM Digitizer to a notebook-- and then going to the limits with a ThinkPad Blu-ray Recordable Ultrabay Enhanced (Serial ATA).

Lenovo's announcement of the W700 on August 12 tells us they have introduced the "industry's first built-in digitizer and color calibrator to a mobile workstation and combines these innovations with first-in-market technologies such as new NVIDIA Quadro FX mobile graphics and supporting the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor. Other features such as optional dual hard drives with RAID configurations, up to 8 GB of high speed DDR3 memory, a range of wireless connectivity options and excellent multimedia capabilities including an optional Blu-ray DVD burner/player make the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation the standard-bearer for power and performance in a mobile workstation."

Lenovo says "The calibrator automatically adjusts the display's color in up to half the time of many external calibrators and with higher accuracy, resulting in the most accurate, true-to-life images in an integrated package. Together with the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor, multimedia designers and animators now have outstanding quad-core processor performance and true color replication that is critical for realistic digital creations and workflow efficiencies."

The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation will be available beginning in September with models starting at $2,978. It is available through Lenovo Business Partners and www.lenovo.com.
