Lenovo Reveals Thinkpad W700

Lenovo already has one of the (if not the) most desirable small form-factor notebooks in the form of the X300 and taking a look at the just-announced W700 that trend seems set to continue. Creating a system likely to be every graphic designers dream, Lenovo has packed a Wacom digitizer into the lower half of the W700's chassis and, as if that wasn't enough, is offering a mouth-watering set of components too.

The core specs, then, are as such:

  • 17in, 1,920 x 1,200 screen (with auto-calibration based on ambient lighting)

  • Intel mobile quad-core Extreme Edition CPU.

  • Up to 8GB DDR3 RAM

  • Hard drive options including RAID 0, 1 and SSDs

  • Wacom tablet digitizer

  • Blu-ray drive option

  • nVidia Quadro FX 2700M or 3700M graphics

  • Up to 2GB Turbo Memory

Frankly, at its top spec, that's an almost dangerously fitted system for a laptop especially given Wacom's impeccable reputation for making quality tablets. Not that a few left-handed potential buyers aren't likely to be frustrated by the positioning of that pad - at least so our resident lefty, Ardjuna, says.

Price wise the system starts from around the $3,000 (~£1,500) but expect that to spiral upwards at an alarming rate as the specs are upped. Can you really put a price on what might be the most deserving system of the desktop replacement category yet?
