Best Business Laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad T or X Series


Baked, battered, blistered.

ThinkPad notebooks endure a lot before they ever reach you. We meticulously design many of them to pass rugged military specifications tests. We outfit them with spill-resistant keyboards, roll-cage technology and shock-mounted hard drives. And we test them in ways you can't imagine--baking, battering, blistering and blowing them with sand.

We don’t call ThinkPad W Series systems "the ultimate mobile workstation" for nothing—
they chew up and spit out even the most demanding high-end professional apps.

Mobile professionals who must process computer-intensive workloads while on location should consider the ThinkPad W701ds.

Solid-state storage drives

Solid-state storage drives (SSDs) use Flash memory rather than traditional magnetic storage. So they are lighter than traditional drives, use less power and offer improved performance (faster boot times, faster access to stored data). And since they have no moving parts, solid state drives are considered less susceptible to damage or breakdown.
Displays and graphics

Discrete graphics

Discrete graphics models feature a dedicated graphics processor and memory to provide superior 3D performance for gaming or other graphics-intensive applications.

OpenGL-certified high-performance graphics

Available on select ThinkPad® W series mobile workstations, OpenGL-certified graphics solutions are designed to be more compatible and stable with professional-level 3-D rendering applications and other tools requiring outstanding 3-D graphics performance.
