>> Michelle Thatcher: Hi I'm Michelle Thatcher, senior associate editor for CNET dot com and this behemoth here is the Lenovo ThinkPad W700. Now as you can tell, this is not your average laptop computer. In fact it barely qualifies as a laptop. It's actually Lenovo's first fore into the desktop replacement category, and it's not really made for just anybody either. It's a true mobile work station which means that inside of the case you've got Intel's core 2 Extreme Quad Core processor, and the latest in video and Quadro FX graphics. I think this workstation is gonna serve it's intended audience really well because it has a couple of really cool features that photographers and designers are really gonna appreciate. First of all there's a built in Wacom digitizer tablet which lets you draw free hand, and also navigate menus using a pen. It's a very natural way for an artist to interact with a computer I think, and it's very helpful that it's already built in. The second feature that's really going to appeal, especially to photographers, is the built in x-rite Pantone color calibrator. This device is really interesting, it works while the laptop lid is closed so you start the software, close the lid, and the calibrator does all the work making sure that your display displays colors correctly. The display itself is a 17 inch UWUXGA screen with a 72 percent color gamut; which means that it shows about 72 percent of visible colors. Otherwise, all the standard ThinkPad features are here. You've got a red track point pointing stick as well as a touchpad, and pretty much all of the ports and connections you could need. I'm Michelle Thatcher and this is the ThinkPad W700. [ music ]
With a relatively affordable starting price and a new design, the ThinkPad Edge loosens up the ThinkPad look--but losing an optical drive keeps it a yard short of being a top-choice compact business laptop.
The IBM ThinkPad T43 delivers similar performance but lesser battery life than the identically designed ThinkPad T42; we think the latter remains the better buy.
The ThinkPad T60 delivers a sturdy design, a complete range of network connectivity, top-shelf performance, long battery life, and just enough ports for the typical business user.
Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet packs the best of Google's Android 3.1 into a durable, Enterprise-ready, 10-inch tablet.
Businesses seeking a sturdy, secure, portable workhorse should consider the ThinkPad R52.
The ThinkPad Tablet 2 runs a full Windows 8 Professional OS, but does so on a next-gen Intel Atom processor.
Lenovo's thin 13-inch ThinkPad X1 is high on design and full of sleek features, including a backlit keyboard.
In the Lenovo ThinkPad R61, the IBM blueprint is still strong, but the addition of a wide-screen display and all the latest Centrino Duo tricks keep things at least semicurrent.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X300 breaks new ground by packing a broad display, full-size keyboard, and nearly every feature a mobile user needs into a sleek, lightweight case.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X220 packs in a new Intel Core i5 CPU, and can run all day (depending on how you use it). With a 12.5-inch display, this is just a bit smaller than a 13-inch laptop, and feels like an excellent compromise for frequent travelers.
