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.
