Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds Review - PCWorld

 

This ISV (independent software vendor)-certified laptop crushes every application it encounters. In tests with professional-level content-creation tools, including 3D Studio Max 2011, Painter 11, and Avid Media Composer, all of the programs ran...

Includes unique, useful pro content-creation tools

Speaker quality falls short of meeting pro demands

Aimed at content creators and engineers, this portable Goliath could replace desktop workstations, letting pros stay productive anywhere.

Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds review

 

It's hardly fitting to call the massive Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds laptop a desktop replacement; it's a workstation alternative, able to take your most demanding applications anywhere. In addition to ridiculously fast performance, this laptop offers a...
