Have you seen the Lenovo ThinkPad W700?
We presented plenty of evidence on this site about the reality of the new ThinkPad W700 and then blithely shot ourselves in the foot when Lenovo released the W700 4 weeks earlier than expected.
The numeric keypad is an intrinsic part of the Lenovo W700 design and is standard, not an option for users. It does make the whole keyboard much easier to use, and it has the typical superb ThinkPad quality.
Quad-core performance offers a desktop-esque experience
Solid Lenovo keyboard, touchpad (attractive point)
Built-in digitizer a handy addition
Color calibration console couldn't be simpler
Impressively rugged build for a 17 inch system
Display doesn't quite meet lofty expectations
Speaker audio makes everything sound like a Paul Harvey broadcast
Supplied pen is rather small
