GBM InkShow: Lenovo W700ds, Part 2

In part 1, we gave everyone a quick hands-on look at the Lenovo Thinkpad W700ds, as well as some close-up pictures of the W700ds, docking station, and size comparison to the Lenovo X200 Tablet PC. In this part 2 video InkShow, we go in to a little bit more detail on how the dual screens works, moving applications back and forth, and demonstrate a little bit of inking on the main and secondary secondary screen. In part 3, we’ll get in to the built-in Wacom digitizer, and in part 4 give a tour of this massive digitizing workstation featuring built-in dual screens.

From my use of the W700ds, I’ve learned that is primarily suited for the graphic artist preferring a digitizer not built-in to the screen, as well as needing another display to reference data from: look at another picture, reference email, reference copy that needs to go in to a Photoshop document, and more. This is not your typical mobile tablet pc. It is targeted at the artist who finds themselves working at a client site every now and then, or needing to take work home for the weekend or longer.

In this part 2 InkShow, you’ll also see some things I wish the W700ds did support, like a tilt angle on the screen and building a digitizer into the secondary screen.
