Despite its massive size, Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds laptop is worth the purchase because it provides complete technologies and applications, almost comparable to a desktop workstation, with its fast processing capability and a second LCD screen.

Another impressive feature is the Intel Core i7 X920 which runs at 2Ghz complemented by up to 8GB RAM, thus allowing the laptop to run different applications simultaneously without experiencing backlog.
While ThinkPad W701ds has not be particularly designed for hard-core gamers, this laptop uses nVidia Quadro FX 3800M graphics card that supports high-quality and high-resolutions videos, perfect for playing games which involved well-detailed graphics.

Complementing the powerful graphics card is the 17-inch display that supports 1920 x 1200 pixel, allowing the screen to project images which come in bright and clear photos, with improved color contrast and brightness.
Meanwhile, the laptop uses a two-button touchpad that is relatively responsive and precise, in addition to the TrackPoint eraserhead. Also, it has an ergonomically designed keyboard that is responsive to the touch, including several dedicated media buttons for fast access.
