Lenovo W700ds, portable workstation dual monitors

"The product is unique in its kind, the workstation Lenovo W700ds put together by portable design and features from workstation with a dual-monitor, graphics tablet and more integrated"


It's called Lenovo W700ds and has already done a lot of himself for curiosity techniques that make it profoundly different from any other solution. If at first you may think of a PC laptop of generous size, in reality we are facing a workstation that could be called "portable" strong main panel 17-inch and 4 Kg of weight, which become almost 5Kg enriched if the Additional second panel.

Already, because the most obvious is the secondary display integrated into the primary with a clutch slide, offering about 40% of space for more useful work. Let's take a look at the specific boards to understand more in terms of technical features. The primary panel, made with CCFL technology, is characterized by a diagonal 17-inch full-HD resolution of 1920x1200 pixels. Lenovo stresses the goodness of the panel used, designed to offer a luminance (400nit) suitable for work photo but not all.

The secondary panel, according to Akihabara, is similar to those mounted on the latest NETBOOK, but vertically. 10.6-inch diagonal backlit LED, with a resolution of 768x1280 pixels (slightly greater height than the primary monitor). An additional interesting area, where to put various tools or applications to free the broad area of the main panel. The secondary display can also rotate around 30th on the summit, as the door of a cabinet, for instance.

The management of the video is taken by Nvidia FX3700M subsystem with 1GB of dedicated memory, and to do everything from engine to find a platform Intel Centrino 2 vPro. Wide selection of Intel processors used, including the top Core 2 Quad Core Q9100, joined other Dual Core. The platform also takes advantage of the Intel Turbo Memory technology, which provides in this release 4GB Solid State memory for caching files that are used most frequently.

From the point of view are different storage solutions, which include both the Solid State Drive (64GB), and traditional solutions to two units. To make it even more special family Lenovo W700 is the presence of a Wacom tablet integrated into the chassis. We talked about family W700 not only for the many versions with features hardware more or less performing: Lenovo also offers a single monitor, W700, which distinct by W700ds, where it is almost certainly for Dual Screen.

Like all extreme solutions, the family W700 is designed for specific uses and not for the mass. To reinforce this belief are the prices, which start in Europe from about 2600 Euro, we do not know whether with or without VAT. I soon discover, as the official presentation is shown for this month.

Re: Lenovo W700ds, portable workstation dual monitors

Technically as the original idea ... but the need for a notebook by 5kg not see. My T60p 14 "from a couple of kilograms connected on the desk when you need a 20" will always be the best solution for working on your laptop when not around.

They should make an "w400" screen 14.1 ", that is a workstation that would take that into consideration in place of T60p ...

Well, aesthetically has the typical IBM (which even someone like ... mah ...), but technically is a real jewel! And, like every jewel, but the prices are adequate ... However truly remarkable: not getting even a suspicion that there was something like that!

And here you do quite right. Now you see, for example by tablet (of undoubted quality we face a niche product (the classic ThinkPad for professionals); certainly appreciate the graphics.

First look at the dual-screen portable Lenovo W700ds WBG

The site GottaBeMobile has published the first two videos and some pictures on the new dual-screen notebook Lenovo, the W700ds. We can already make a regret, when the small secondary screen is used, it can not be displayed on any external display. The NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700 (a G92M with 128 SPs) only supports two screens. It is regrettable that Lenovo has decided to integrate a second graphics card as we have seen on some notebooks equipped with an SLI GeForce of M.

Re: Lenovo W700ds, portable workstation dual monitors

Lenovo officially releases W700ds- dual screen ThinkPad

Because many workstation users typically work with two monitors, Lenovo designed the ThinkPad W700ds mobile workstation with two screens, accommodating their work habits while on-the-go and eliminating the compromise of having only one display when operating in a mobile environment. Research has shown that extra screen real-estate with multiple monitors helps maximize user productivity versus single display solutions.1 Measuring almost 40 percent of the 17-inch primary screen, the 10.6-inch second screen gives users extra screen real-estate measuring approximately the size of a Lenovo IdeaPad S10 netbook.

The second screen easily slides out from the PC cover behind the primary screen, and it can also be adjusted to fit a user’s viewing angle by up to 30 degrees, similarly to how a car’s rear view mirror tilts. This unique feature and test of engineering only adds a few millimeters in additional thickness to the mobile workstation over its predecessor, the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation.

The second screen complements the primary optional 400-nit WUXGA display which provides up to twice the brightness of earlier ThinkPad mobile workstations. The primary screen’s 72 percent wide color gamut enables more than 50 percent greater color intensity for an uncompromised viewing experience.

Intersection of Innovation and Performance
With its second screen, the ThinkPad W700ds mobile workstation builds on the breakthrough capabilities offered in the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation that included the industry’s first built-in digitizer and color calibrator for mobile workstations.

Ideal for digital content creators and users, the optional digitizer provides high resolution, pressure high resolution, pressure sensitive control of the primary screen, the primary and the secondary screen or a specific defined area of either screen. Select models also come with a color calibrator that quickly and automatically adjusts the screen’s color to give true-to-life images and rendering 2D and 3D images, which are important items for digital content creators.

Professional photographer, Phil Borges commented, “The Lenovo ThinkPad W700 is the ultimate in portable workstations for photographers. The built in calibration and the ultra bright monitor make it possible for me to do work on the road that I would normally have to wait to do in the studio. The W700’s two built-in hard drives make backing up photos while I’m on the road or in the studio a snap. Normally the process takes me a couple of hours, but with the W700 backup time is cut in half. Now the new ThinkPad W700ds takes it one step further with a second screen, allowing me to move all my working palets to the second screen and giving me more real estate on the main screen for photo editing.”

The ThinkPad W700ds mobile workstation gives users the latest technologies that are essential for work in data and graphics-intensive fields such as computer-assisted design, computer-aided manufacturing and others. Top processing and graphics performance includes choices of Intel? mobile quad core and extreme processors with optional dual hard drives with RAID configurations and choices of NVIDIA? Quadro FX mobile graphics. The mobile workstation offers up to 8 GB of high speed DDR3 memory and choices of solid state drive storage and traditional hard disk drives for a maximum of 960 GB of possible total storage. The mobile workstation also carries certifications from more than 20 independent software applications.

The ThinkPad W700ds mobile workstation offers a rich, customizable multimedia experience with optional ™ DVD burner/player and high speed UDMA compact flash reader, support for Dual Link DVI, Display Port and VGA, a 7-in-1 multicard reader and five USB ports. In addition to WiFi, for connectivity beyond the office, select models support WiMAX. Security features include an optional fingerprint reader, a smartcard reader and hard drives with full-disk encryption.

The powerhouse mobile workstation also balances its functionality with staying cool and quiet. Lenovo engineered a dual thermal solution to keep the ThinkPad W700ds mobile workstation running as cool as ThinkPad notebooks and quieter than the ambient noise in a typical office.

Pricing and Availability
The ThinkPad W700ds mobile workstation is available immediately through www.lenovo.com and business partners. Pricing for models starts at $3,663.
