Lenovo W700 Thinkpad Review »


The built-in WACOM Digitizer, 17" widescreen display, up to 8GB of RAM, quad-core processor, and 64GB solid state hard drive may just make this lap topper from Lenovo worth the $2,500 price tag. We'll find out in today's Tech Review.

Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.

What You Need to Know

  • It's almost 2" thick and weighs over 8lbs.
  • The screen is huge with good reason, but for an artsy computer, it's a little too big and plain
  • It's got a built-in Wacom Tablet and a high-def screen, which are incredibly helpful for artists
  • The Wacom Digitizer works great as a scale model of your desktop and you can macro pen flicks just like a normal tablet
  • The placement of the tablet is a little weird since you have to hang your arm off the end of the laptop
  • 17” screen is unbelievable; it’s one of the most eye-popping displays we've ever seen
  • In our PCMark Vantage Tests (video encoding and playback, RAM and hard drive speed, all-around productivity), it scored an excellent 4,300 points, which is higher than most of the productivity laptops we've reviewed
  • In our 3DMark Vantage gaming tests, it scored 4,600 points, almost as much as the Toshiba SLI Gaming Laptop we saw
  • Overall, it can handle any task you throw at it
  • If you're an artist who needs to do some light work on the road, this is an excellent choice
  • For anyone else, it's a little too much


Price

  • The prices start at $2,500 (the model we reviewed cost $4,500)
