Read the full Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds review

It may only appeal to those with big, specific demands and bigger wallets, but the Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds' complement of unique features (like its RGB-LED backlit screen with built-in hardware colorimeter, secondary display and integrated Wacom tablet) means it has no competition. Considering it's also powerful, very well-built and offers every connection you could want along with surprisingly decent battery life, it truly deserves its title of 'mobile workstation'.

Looks utterly mental! I'd love one, but not sure how comfortable using the wacom tablet in that (fixed) position would be. Might be easier to just put a wireless Wacom 4 in the laptop bag instead. The built-in colour calibration is very clever, though I'd imagine that with LED backlighting it shouldn't need to be done very often. Using an external EyeOne every 6 months would surely be adequate.

The left-hand right-hand bias on the drawing tablet is curious as left-handed people are supposed to have a more artistic bias. (I say this as a righty.) Had to put it on one side I suppose.

I would love to take this bad boy to University, all the MacBookAirs would get sucked in a crushed by its gravitational pull.

To be honest, surely i buy a normal laptop with decent specs for £1k then spend £400 on a Wacom Intuos 4 and £100 on a 21" screen and I've gotten a much much much better deal?

@Brian Carter:

Indeed, as a south-paw creative myself it's slightly disappointing.


Try carrying a laptop, Intuos tablet and 21in screen around the office - or to clients - with you ;)
