Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds mobile workstation: New images and details

Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds mobile workstation: New images and details

When news of Lenovo's ThinkPad W700ds dual-display workstation broke last week we did wonder if the small photo was a fan mockup - the side display looked very much "tagged on".  Now new, larger official images have appeared, and it looks like that original picture was accurate.  Happily we also have a new price range, which is much less than what early tips suggested: Lenovo will be selling the W700ds from around $3,600.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s reviewed: Loves you long time

Lenovo's X200s, announced at the same time as the X200t Tablet PC, aims to take the ethos of the company's standard X200 ultraportable and instill some stamina into it.  By switching out the standard CPU for a low-voltage processor, using an LED backlight for the display and strapping in a 9-cell battery, Lenovo claim 13.2hrs continuous runtime; Laptop Mag have have it on the bench, and under normal conditions it coasted to 10hrs 43 minutes.

Lenovo ThinkPad W700 reviewed: Niche but nice

Lenovo ThinkPad W700 reviewed: Niche but nice

Lenovo's ThinkPad W700 caused a few double-takes when it launched, with a 5.1 x 3.2-inch Wacom digitizer built into the palm-rest, integrated color calibrator for the 17-inch 1920 x 1200 display and a range of available processors that easily let you throw away your desktop workstation.  Laptop Mag have had the W700 in for testing, in the shape of a 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 model priced at over $3,800, and have come up with the conclusion you might expect: it's good, but it's niche.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200t reviewed, compared, generally liked

Lenovo's X200t has only been official since Thursday last week, but the reviews are already beginning to wade in.  Laptop Mag have put the $2,300 convertible notebook through its paces, and like just about every ThinkPad review in existence, the keyboard and general durability are both praised.  Meanwhile, over at GottaBeMobile, they've lined up the X200t against a key rival: HP's 2730p Tablet PC, announced back in August.

Lenovo X200t Tablet PC breaks cover

The first live photo of Lenovo's ThinkPad X200t Tablet PC has appeared, not long after the existence of the ultraportable itself was confirmed by the FCC.  Looking unsurprisingly similar to the ThinkPad X61t it replaces, the convertible notebook has a pen-enabled touchscreen and seems to continue the traditional "built like a tank" design ethos.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200t Tablet PC hits FCC: UWB confirmed

Lenovo's upcoming ThinkPad X200t, the Tablet PC version of the ThinkPad X200 ultraportable, has shown up on the FCC website.  Although the report is merely certifying the notebook, not testing it - and as such lacks any of the low-res photos we've come to love the FCC for - it does confirm that the Tablet PC is in the pipeline and that it will have integrated UWB.

Lenovo ThinkPad X301: New ULV CPUs, DDR3 RAM & WiMAX coming

Lenovo have announced an update to their ThinkPad X300, adding a so-far unreleased Intel Core 2 Duo ULV processor and two new SSD options.  The ThinkPad X301 will be available with Intel's 1.2GHz U9300 and 1.4GHz U9400 CPUs, both having 6MB L2 cache and 1066MHz FSB, while the X300's 64GB SSD is replaced by either an 80GB or 128GB version.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Ultraportable: Hands-On

We had the opportunity to spends some hands-on time with Lenovo's ThinkPad X200 recently, the company's latest ultraportable and the smallest of the X-series notebooks.  With a 12.1-inch, 1280 x 800 WXGA display and choice of 2.26GHz (P8400) or 2.4GHz (P8600) Intel Core 2 Duo processors, the X200 is just 0.8-inches thick.  It's also being compared by many buyers to the ThinkPad X300, reviewed back in April - that machine starts at $2,268, compared to the X200's $1,385 - which is slightly thinner but, thanks to its optical drive, is actually a little bit heavier than the X200. 

Lenovo ThinkPad X200: battery life ‘especially impressive’

The road is clear for Lenovo's X200 ultraportable now that Intel have officially announced the Centrino 2 platform, and Crave is one of the first to get the 12.1-inch widescreen notebook in to review.  Right now we'll have to be sated with some first-impressions and comparisons with previous Lenovo laptops, but there's enough promise to keep X200 pre-order customers keen.
