IMPRESSIVE LAPTOP; WS701

Date:November 19, 2010
Pros: Processor, Memory, Input/Output compatibility, Display resolution, Display performance, Video card, Support, Build Quality
"I struggled trying to decide if I should buy this laptop or Apple's Pro notebook. While the Apple was significantly cheaper it lacks the speed and sophistication of the WS701. First off, the Lenovo is quad-core and has the fastest chip available. I am amazed at how fast it is able to run complex programs such as photoshop or even to just rotate a photo in a simple image viewer. The real deal breaker was Lenovo's video output which allows me to achieve resolutions on an external monitor beyond anything that the Apple can. This is important in my photo editing work. Also, the screen is calibrated to show all of the Adobe profile colors. Apple's doesn't. I and friends are amazed at how stunning the color rendition is. My Spyder Calibrator confirmed the factory calibration. A bonus feature is the USB 3 outputs. I recently bought an external drive capable of using USB-3 and it is radically faster that what I can achieve with USB 2. I haven't tested it yet buy I believe I am able to write to this external drive in a shorter time than to the internal hard drive. I would buy this laptop again and recommend it to colleagues. It might cost more than the Apple, but it is definitely worth it."

Large but powerful

Date:November 18, 2010
Pros: Processor, Storage, Input/Output compatibility, Keyboard/peripherals, Screen size, Display performance
Cons: Weight, Battery
"This 17 inch notebook is a struggle to carry around, especially when you travel as much as I do, but it's power and large screen make it a pleasure to use. Mine is configured with 2 500gb HD's and 4 gig RAM. My only wish is I had put more RAM in, but plan on doing that later.
I use it partly for work and mostly for personal use. Professionally, I use it as a database server using MS SQL and Oracle for enterprise application development and some Java progamming. It's great for running Virtual Machines (VM's) with it's multi-core processing capability.
For personal use, it's great to watch recorded shows and DVD's on in the hotel at night. As a gaming machine, I've played some first person shooters and the play is smooth with excellent graphics.
Due to the power, battery life is short."

Would buy it Again.

Date:November 18, 2010
Pros: Processor, Memory, Input/Output compatibility, Wireless card, Display resolution, Screen size, Display performance, Durability, Support, Security Features, Build Quality
Cons: Weight
"I bought my W700 to replace my desktop and an older laptop. it has been perfect for my use. I do take it back and fourth to the office (I am a Realtor) and it is a bit heavy, but I love the big bright screen.
This is my first Lenovo, and it won't be my last. (I have been using laptops since the early 90's)
My only problem is I could never find any instructions to help me learn to use the built in pen for signing documents. Looked like it would be useful, but maybe later!
Good job building a reliable laptop!
