Lenovo adds quad-core laptop to ThinkPad line

From InfoWorld: Lenovo on Tuesday added some power to its venerable ThinkPad line, launching a laptop with a quad-core processor that could be its highest-performing notebook to date.

The ThinkPad W700, designed as a workstation alternative, also offers close to 1TB of storage and packs multimedia features to complement the speedy processor.

Targeted at users such as digital content creators who need solid graphics and data crunching capabilities, the notebook was under development for 18 months, said Wes Williams, worldwide product marketing manager at Lenovo. It is an addition to the W-line of ThinkPad laptops that includes the ThinkPad W500, introduced earlier this year.

Three optional hard drives, boasting capacities of 320GB apiece, plug into different slots to bring the storage capacity close to 1TB. Also on offer is a 64GB solid-state drive, and though its current capacity dwarfs hard drive storage, it will increase over time, Williams said.
