Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds has extra screen

by Mark R

This isn’t the first time that we covered the Lenovo ThinkPad W700, but I’ve just learned that Lenovo is planning to upgrade this model with the W700ds, which has one of the coolest features of any notebook, a slide out screen!

The screen is a 10.2 inch LED display that the user can pull out from the side, and has the option of tilting it forward or backward on a hinge. You can’t help but love a feature like this, as a laptop will have an extra screen for word processing, text messaging, or whatever you didn’t have space enough to do on your laptop screen before.

Other features on the Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds include the Intel Core 2 Extreme or Core 2 Quad, 8 GB of RAM, 980 GB of storage memory, and the NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M. At maximum brightness on the screens, the battery life isn’t long at about 2 hours.

The Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds will be available to ship next month, at a price of about $3,600. In case you don’t think that is worth it, you should check out a sneak preview when the W700ds will be on display at CES next month. By the way, we at Coolest Gadgets are going to give you some excellent coverage of CES, so stay tuned for that.
