CES 2009: Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds hands-on

Lenovo's ThinkPad W700ds may have been around for a few weeks, but CES has been the first opportunity we at SlashGear have had to play with the dual-display behemoth.  Based on Lenovo's original W700, complete with a Wacom graphics digitizer integrated into the palm rest, the W700ds adds a pull-out 10.6-inch LCD display that slides from the main 17-inch panel.  It's an interesting concept, but our hands-on impressions leave us wondering if the compromises are worth it.

The groundbreaking dual-screen Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds is no doubt a creative and one-of-the-kind laptop replacement we’ve seen to date. Sized at 10.6-inch, the slide-out secondary screen is essentially a 2nd notebook built-in, and so does the weight and price.

Folks over at laptormag have jumped at the opportunity to get their hands on the ThinkPad, the full review is up, not wowed but managed to came away with the Editor Choice.

While I know Lenovo's ThinkPad W700ds dual-screen workstation would likely break my weak blogger's back should I actually try to lift it, that still doesn't end its appeal.  A video of one of Lenovo's prototypes has shown up, showing the mechanism by which the second, 10.6-inch LCD display slides out and then back into the W700ds' lid, behind the primary 17-inch display.

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'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'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.
