Thinkpad netbook in the tunnel?

Lenovo’s senior exec has revealed that the company is looking forward to release a netbook under the Thinkpad brandname. Due to the recent introduction of netbooks sporting high price tags, IBM thinks that the lines between netbooks and notebooks are blurring at a very fast rate.

However, Lenovo has clearly indicated that the Thinkpad netbook will not have specs of a conventional netbook. According to them, if you want ‘full functionality’, you will have to go for Core or Celeron mobile processor. The Thinkpad netbook will be designed to cater to the needs of those who yearn for something that is more powerful than the conventional netbook but has the same size and feel.

The Thinkpad brand is a brand that is widely popular among businessmen and if Lenovo releases something under that brand, it will be of premium quality for sure.

ThinkPad W700ds officially announced!

Remember the ThinkPad W700ds, which we mentioned about 2 weeks back? Well, during the CES 2009, they have officially announced the W700ds. The ThinkPad W700ds gives users prime screen real-estate as the first mobile workstation in the industry with two screens. Lenovo is calling it as the ultimate mobile workstation.

“The ThinkPad W700ds dual screen mobile workstation challenged our international development team to engineer a notebook to fit the way workstation users work – in the office and on the road,” said Mark Cohen, vice president, Notebook Business Unit, Lenovo. “Bringing this level of innovation to the most extreme PC users required continually balancing size and functionality with keeping the PC cool and quiet. This mobile workstation is the result of where Lenovo innovation and performance intersect.”

Only time will tell, if the users really like the dual-screen concept. While this laptop workstation would be overkill for an average Joe, it will be actually be appreciated by those who desire the extra real-estate while working on documents. One thing to note is that the secondary display acts as a secondary monitor. This means that you cannot use a third monitor to extend the display, if the second monitor is in use.

Lenovo Thinkpad W700 – find my second screen if you can!

At first look, it looks like just another (bulky) (ugly) Lenovo laptop. But, this is one is different. It hides something that most of the other laptops don’t posses so far. It has a huge 10.2″ display hidden underneath the palm rest. Lenovo has worked very hard on the Thinkpad W700 to make it a super laptop. Beside the it’s hidden weapon, the 10″ screen, it comes with Intel Quad-core processor and internal color calibrato, which makes it a true mobile workstation!

If that was enough, it comes with NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M and 3700M Open GL graphics processors that give this beast up to 1 GB of dedicated video memory.

Regarding price, it costs a modest $3000!
