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
- The prices start at $2,500 (the model we reviewed cost $4,500)
- 83% (how do we rate gadgets?)
