Lenovo Dual Screen Laptop

The Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds is a rather unique product, targeted squarely at mobile professionals who require the power, features, and performance of workstation-class machine on the go. We previously evaluated the standard ThinkPad W700 and praised the system for its performance and stand-out integrated features, like a Wacom Digitizer Tablet and X-Rite Color Calibrator. The ThinkPad W700ds takes all of the features offered by the W700 and ads a secondary, slide-out display, which increases monitor real-estate by 39%.

Gigs of everything too. Linux plays well with Lenovo laptops, even if Lenovo (as a company) does not always play well with Linux.

    Have you seen this ad for it?

    Nice – except that left-handers will find it’s usefulness a bit reduced. The digitizer is right-hand only (if you use your left, you’ll have to reach awkwardly across, and find a way to turn off the trackpad when you’re not using it)

    Or a lefty could set up the computer backwards, facing a mirror, and use software to reverse all the text….

    True! Or, you know, buy an Intuos tablet* from Wacom (which is ambidextrously designed) and keep their current computer/laptop.

    They’re quite fun, although getting them to work with the Gimp can be tricky at times.

    *Better yet, but pricier, one of the cintiq designs.
