Lenovo ThinkPad W700
The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation has an optional built-in palm rest digitizer and color calibrator. Lenovo and Intel collaborated to integrate the color calibrator and digitizer into the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation. Designed for digital content creators and users, the mobile workstation's digitizer helps them easily configure an image, either mapping it to the entire screen or to an area defined by the user. High performance users, especially digital photographers, will benefit from models with the built-in color calibrator. The calibrator automatically adjusts the display's color in up to half the time of many external calibrators and with higher accuracy, resulting in the most accurate, true-to-life images in an integrated package. Together with the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor, multimedia designers and animators now have outstanding quad-core processor performance and true color replication that is critical for realistic digital creations and workflow efficiencies.
Supporting the latest Intel processor technologies including the upcoming mobile quad core processor, the mobile workstation can be configured with up to 8 GB of memory with an additional 2 GB of Intel Turbo Memory. Lenovo also offers models with Intel vPro technology for complete manageability. The mobile workstation can be equipped with dual internal hard drives, including solid state drive storage. The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation offers both the NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M and 3700M Open GL graphics processors with up to 1 GB of dedicated video memory for exceptional graphics performance in a 17-inch mobile workstation. The hard drives can be configured for RAID 0 to help users access and save their data faster than traditional disk-writing methods, or users can choose RAID 1 for mirrored data redundancy.
The mobile workstation includes WiFi wireless connectivity. Additionally, users can connect to other devices wirelessly using mobile workstation models featuring Bluetooth and ultra wideband technology. Models supporting WiMAX will be available later this year.
As the company's first product with a 17-inch display, the ThinkPad W700
mobile workstation delivers an unparalleled viewing experience with a combination
of leading technologies. Its optional 400-nit WUXGA display provides up to twice
the brightness of earlier ThinkPad mobile workstation models, and the 72 percent
wide color gamut provides more than 50 percent greater color intensity. The
high resolution, extreme brightness and wide color gamut coupled with the NVIDIA
Quadro FX MXM graphics solution results in a user experience unequalled in a
mobile workstation today. For external connectivity, the ThinkPad W700 mobile
workstation provides support for Dual Link DVI, Display Port and VGA. A 7-in-1
multicard reader, and five USB ports give users flexibility in transferring
and accessing digital content. Additionally, the workstation comes with an optional
compact flash reader and Blu-ray DVD burner/player. An optional mini-dock extends
the mobile workstation's capabilities with eSATA and digital audio ports
as well as convenient cabling for power, external monitors and peripherals.
Packed for extreme performance, the mobile workstation also features BIOS/port disablement and an optional fingerprint reader, a smartcard reader and hard drives with full-disk encryption. It will carry more than 20 certifications from independent software vendors.
