Most of us would associate ThinkPads with serious business machines that aren’t associated with anything flashy, but it seems the executives at IBM (or should we say, Lenovo?) have loosened their ties a wee bit with the new ThinkPad W700 notebook. What makes this so special? Well, for starters, it comes with a built-in secondary display – all 10.6″ of it is foldable, offering LED backlight and a resolution of 768 x 1,280 pixels. Other specifications will also leave you wanting more, including :-

  • Intel Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Extreme, and Core 2 Quad Core Q9100 processors
  • Primary 17″ 1,920 x 1,200 display, CCFL backlight
  • NVIDIA Quadro Express graphics technology
  • Intel Turbo Memory 4GB module support
  • 4GB memory DIMM
  • Integrated color calibration
  • Wacom onboard palm rest digitizer and pen
  • Integrated 10.6″ 768 x 1,280 secondary display, LED backlight
  • 64GB solid state drive
  • DisplayPort
  • Dual Link DVI
  • Integrated camera
  • Dual RAID HDD high-speed storage (250GB max, one could be 64GB SSD)
  • Wireless LAN Intel WiFi Link 5300
  • ThinkVantage technologies
  • Trusted ThinkPad layered security

As you can tell, this will be one big monster, tipping the scales at a whopping 10.9 pounds. Guess you can cancel that gym membership now and tote the W700 wherever you go to get your daily workout.
