At A Glance

The idea of a second screen latched onto a huge desktop replacement notebook sounds good on paper, but it's not fully-baked.

Manufacturer’s Description

ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation designed for digital content creators and users, the mobile workstation?s digitizer helps easily configure an image, either mapping it to the entire screen or to an area defined by the user. High performance users, especially digital photographers, will benefit from models with the built-in color calibrator as color continues to play an important role in their work. The calibrator automatically adjusts the display?s color in up to half the time of many external calibrators and with higher accuracy, resulting in the most accurate, true-to-life images in an integrated package.
