Traditionally laptops have been the lower-performance compromise you make for leaving your desktop. Lenovo has changed that paradigm by producing this monster machine. With the first Quad Core Extreme CPU ever on a laptop, an NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700 (with 1GB video memory), RAID 0 or 1, and 8GB (!) of DDR3 RAM, this desktop hiding in a laptop makes no compromises.
Probably most interesting is the way Lenovo has positioned this to multimedia enthusiasts. The laptop has an integrated Wacom tablet, the screen has an option for a 400-nit (about twice as bright as some previous ThinkPads) WUXGA screen with built-in color-calibration sensor, and the front of the laptop has slots for your Flash Memory.
