My touchpad is now set to be only buttons and I can configure how much of the pad on the left, middle, and right represents the left middle and right mouse buttons and I use the little red nub as the mouse. It is lightning fast. The keyboard is positive and full sized, though a hair on the chiclet side of things. While I realized it is set to the left, it's never particularly bothered me in terms of visual alignment; I can't say I care about the number pad, but I don't find the layout to be a fatal flaw.
It's a minor twist that takes a bit to adapt to. Think of it this way - most of us probably have two monitors on a desktop. The keyboard isn't lined up directly with both of them and it doesn't really cause any problems at all.
Time will tell on durability. The only thing I can't tell you is how much of the speed and snappiness is from Ubuntu But I am quite happy with April 18, I received the W two months ago as a desktop workstation replacement for doing CAD for work. I have to say that i am very surprised and pleased about how well it performs. I use it between two locations and have it always with the lid closed and hooked up to an external display, one is x via Display port, and the other is x via DVI In both locations i have external mice and Keyboard and have a single docking station in one location.
I rarely actually use the laptop on the move, or use the keyboard, trackpad or pointer. I haven't ever got on with trackpads at all on laptops ever, so i always have a micro mouse when i do need to use it on the move.
A lot has been said about the trackpad design flaws, and i have not owned a previous version of lenovo workstations, so i can't compare, and i don't really use it, but i'm sure there are many people who wish to operate the machine as i do who probably shouldn't be too dissuaded from buying one of these machines. The x IPS should resolve this as IPS's viewing angles are supposed to be much better, although ive not seen it.
I would say that you would be easily mistaken to think that this machine is a high end CAD desktop as it runs CAD software SolidEdge ST6 very smoothly and with multiple large models and drawings open at the same time. Also, it is very very quiet, runs very cool and is surprisingly light. March 18, I bought this computer by chance.
I am from Europe and I went to US to visit a relative. I aimed at buying a new computer my HP w was showing aging signs and I wanted a Z-book. I decided to risk it and bought it. It is an more-less entry level spec model. After I took it out of the box, and having owned an Thinkpad before I was a little disappointed at start. What shook me additionally is looking for reviews and finding all the negative ones all around.
But heck, I got it and I didn't wanna go back. After several weeks I am really happy with it. I love to have a numpad, offset keybord is a no-issue for me. All desktop keyboards are offset, aren't they? This is just a thing of getting used to. Now I know they are not there and I don't look any more. To all of you, use settings to set up the touchpad to your preference. It's actually pretty good when you start to use all new multi-gesture tricks. Using of top row keys F-keys as special keys for volume control and similar actions works excellent, I love it.
I don't use F keys a lot anyways so pressing Fn to get them is OK for me. And now to the best part. Case finish is better then on old Thinkpads, it doesn't get shiny from touching, it is lightning fast, it doesn't get really hot, it is very silent and it is amazingly light for a workstation.
It's not without a flaw, but having so many hatred about it I just cannot understand. I guess it comes from devoted Thinkpad followers who don't approve new design direction by Lenovo. March 15, Reviews of Thinkpad W are up to now pre-dominantly negative, which made me hesitate for buying it. After I actually bought it, I was first frustrated as well, but later on my opinions improved. My comments are:Most people complain about the inclusion of Num pad.
I find it actually quite convenient for number crunching. I don't need to look at the keyboard anymore. That's an efficiency gain. That the Num pad makes the typing shifted to the left came first as inconvenient. But then in my programming environment I put the editor to the left and command pane, workspace pane etc to the right, such that I still look straight at what I'm typing. This solves pretty much the problemThe keyboard touch is indeed less nice than the older Thinkpads, but still better than the Mac keyboard as Thinkpad has all what I need, i.
PgUp, PgDown, etc, which makes me don't feel any need for using an external keyboardThe trackpad frustrated me at the beginning as well due to the difficult multi-finger gestures. But then we realized that it was because it was ill-tuned when it comes out of the box. Some elaborate configuration helped make it comfortable to use. Now I have all multi-touch gestures activated.
But after all still less good than on Mac. That the click is soft is also a plus for me. On Mac one can hardly click at all. That there are no physical indicators doesn't disturb me at all. On the contrary, I don't get distracted by them anymore. Another efficiency gain.
Mac doesn't haven them either. That the battery sticks out doesn't disturb me either. On the contrary I find it quite convenient for holding the laptop horizontally on my forearm. The Macbook feels on the contrary slippery and missing gripWhat keeps frustrating me is actually not due to W, but due to Windows. I have Windows 7, a lot of texts and software don't scale well to the high screen resolution.
Still haven't found the trick for Matlab. Its ribbons are so tiny small that naked eyes cannot readOverall I think W has a great offer in performance and portability. The usual critic points are possible to circumvent. Lenovo should learn more from Apple to improve the user experience from the out-of-the-box moment. March 3, Today on shutting down the W, I get the Windows blue shut down screen with the comment:"Operations are in progress, pleases wait.
The machine will be turned off automatically after the operations are complete. Fast disk access? Slow disk access, intermittent disk access? Or is it locked? CtrlAltDel has no action. Mouse cursor does move. Cold booted again, and tried a Safe Mode. All OK now Great for lap use on the road, or dusty desktops, keeps vents clean.
Visible with diags. It's a black box ready for malware and viruses. WiFi locks up, is OS locked! When recovering from a crash, cannot see when hard shut off when holding for 'x' seconds! Needed: A batch file to for cleanup. This is a 3. Poor contact, crackling. Not good for audio visual applications. February 25, Upgraded from a T, some thoughts:Was hit by famous BIOS bug Intel Rapid Start - first time they swapped the mainboard on-site, the second time i had to send it to a service center, which took about two months!
You can actually cause distortion when touching it lightly at the edgesIndicator lights are all gone, instead the keyboard has lights for fn-lock, microphone mute and mute. Couldn't they just add a capslock led?
I like the new keyboard backlight - way better than the old ThinkLight February 18, I dont know why I have seen negative reviews for this laptop. Ive seen people complaining about the touchpad, personally, I like the touchpad, sure it's not as good as the macbook pro trackpads but it's very sensitive for light touch clicking and is desgined to be pretty functional as you can click easily from any spot on the touchpad.
I use a mouse anyway so that's really not a feature im too concerned about when buying a computer. Another thing Ive seen people complaing about is the overall design. Personally, I think this computer looks really cool. On top of that this computer really feels like it's built to last, the fan runs smooth and quiet and it just feels like everythings got a nice amount of room to breath in this Another pluss on the form for me is the built-in stand on the bottom of the computer about a centimeter high, ensuring constant proper ventilation.
I got this computer a week ago with a gb ssd and, the i7 mq, this thing is lightning fast when it comes to speed, opening programs like photoshop and final cut takes half a second and overall processing speed is incredible. Other key specs for me included the thunderbolt port and quadro graphics card. Not to mention up to 32gb ram. This is overall one of the best computers on the market and certainly one of, if not the best mobile workstation out there in my opinion.
February 1, Best mobility for this kind of machine and very good battery life is another advantage. You can connect up to 3 external monitors which makes it perfect for software developer work. All this things make W perfect work station You can use it every day for professional work from graphic design, science computations, CAD design to software developing. First off center keyboard with numpad, this is biggest mistake I could imagine on this kind of machine every professional working on this laptop is using keyboard for hours every day so Your hands are in unnatural position and Your writs start to hurt quickly I can't understand what designers had in mind doing this kind of decision.
Second major flaw is big clickable touchpad which is off center to the left so this makes whole keyboard situation even worse because while You're writing on the keyboard You will touch on the surface of touchpad and move around cursor on top of that from time to time making accidental clicks I can't understand how this design decision has been made?
And how this wasn't changed during the tests W is a powerful machine for professionals but because of the keyboard and touchpad it's impossible to use it in any serious work So for time being only option for now is W but I hope in the next machine Lenovo will make it right.
I had to post my review here because Lenovo didn't post my review on their site which should be good indication for anybody considering to buy W how Lenovo is simple choose to ignore and hide this 2 flaws. January 30, Overall, the W is a solid, powerful laptop that unfortunately has a few huge, glaring flaws. Not recommended for power users or software developers. Great work! I was running intense renders and compiling Ruby from source without breaking a sweat.
SSD performance is also fantastic. I was expecting it to be a pretty big drain, but it lasted long enough to watch a full 2. Excellent quality. It's incredibly finicky, doesn't always recognize right-clicks, and is hard to make precision movements with.
With the W's high-resolution display, that means you're going to be missing a lot of smaller UI targets. It only takes one or two of these experiences to feel like you've suddenly become far less productive, and it's very frustrating. That's a problem because it has bad palm rejection, and your cursor will often go flying across the screen because you grazed it with your thumb while using the keyboard. That makes it even harder to exercise fine motor control necessary for using some software UIs.
The numpad might be helpful for some kinds of users e. The chicklet-style keys mean that the travel distance of each key is a lot less, so it's more painful to use. As a developer I'm used to seeing this and rely on it as a visual cue. For now I'll stick with my W I really wanted to like the W -- Haswell is a great technology platform, and I'm glad to see Lenovo taking advantage of it. But I just can't get behind the latest iteration. I'd buy another one in a second if they fix the keyboard and go back to the previous trackpads.
I could see myself getting used to not having LEDs, but having those back too would make it a pretty automatic win. You can reach me on Twitter at jxxf if you have more questions. January 29, Thinkpads used to be the best machines that professionals could buy for reasonable amounts of money, unless you were looking for the Apple side of things. This machine is still good, and it might still be among the top of its field, but it, along with its Thinkpad kinsmen, no longer stands out.
Let's start with the good bits: the machine sports a display with what I'd call a good screen resolution x , which is probably the highest resolution my eyes can work with effectively without having to change the default xterm font. This is a truly liberating experience. The on-board Haswell chip worked like a charm, and thanks to full Intel graphics support for the display, wrestling with NVidia kernel driver packages is a thing of the past.
Please try again later. Verified Purchase. While many of complains hinge around this model not having the same design features as prior models, there are a lot of positive new additions which I believe make up the difference. The missing hard buttons with the TrackPoint are also awkward at first. The missing LEDs is a pretty big mistake along with changing the power adapter and docking station arrangements making offices which invested in docking stations obsolete.
The display is absolutely beautiful to look at and work with. The speakers are so much louder and clearer than prior models. They switched to using ports on the front edge of the notebook which is surprisingly effective. The consolidation of the memory and hard-drive into a single compartment is handy along with all the memory ports being on the same side of the system.
No more having to remove the keyboard to get access to the other two ports. While there is no longer a locking mechanism for the display, I never felt that I was going to accidentally break the display while opening it. The battery finally feels secure in the notebook. For every prior model, the extended battery would have a jiggle to it and never felt attached.
This has completely gone away with the W I know there were issues with the early models having keyboard flex but I did not detect any in my model. Keyboard was solid and easy to use even though it is now offset due to the keypad. The power adapter is definitely lighter and smaller but fitting the square end of the adapter into the notebook takes some getting used to as well.
The fingerprint reader was also redesigned and works better in my opinion from prior models. Based on my limited use so far, I do not regret getting this system as a replacement for my W This is my third generation of ThinkPad dock and I like it the least so far. I'm still sorting out the bugs, so it may grow on me.
But here's the issues I've found. I bought a Lenovo monitor stand for my old work station. The monitor sits on top and the dock sets onto little pegs on the shelf underneath. Nice - the dock is rock steady to put the laptop into and out of. But the new dock doesn't have the place for the pins, so they don't lock together. It still sits there, but the stability is gone with the old dock.
Issue 2 - The Laptop boots into recovery mode if it's in the dock. If I start it up off the dock and then dock it, all is good. So now to figure out what the problem is The Lenovo website hasn't been terribly helpful so far. On the plus side, the dock allows good connections to a host of other things.
Even a USB charging port that stays on even when the laptop is off. It's a great idea, but hasn't worked out as well as previous versions. I'll update the review if I get solutions to the booting issue. One person found this helpful. Except: Fingerprint reader advertised, not included!
My only complaint is the non-existent but nonetheless still advertised fingerprint reader. Laptop system works exceptionally well. I have no complaints about this machine. It was a great discount off Lenovo's website, and it's loaded. I would like to have seen some better specs listed on the Amazon listing here, but with some research I was able to find most of the spec list from Lenovo and other sources.
Ever since Lenovo broke off from IBM, they have been screamin' along in performance and reliability. I have a W as my work-issued machine, and I love it so much that I decided to get another one for my personal machine. I debated on the W because I could use the same docks and accessories, but ultimately decided on the W because I wanted the updated screen, backlit keyboard, and other features.
I really like that Lenovo gives you a choice of Windows 7 or 8, and it actually came with Windows 7 pre-installed! No stupid windows 8!!! It's NOT a touchscreen. The W is a lot thinner than the W and W It feels solid, doesn't flex and twist like so many thin laptops these days, and it has tons of expansion capability.
In addition to the Optical bay, there is actually 2 M. I believe it has the 42mm size slot, tho I have not actually measured it yet. There is a LOT of confusion on the M. Not that I really need an optical drive very often Like its predecessors, the W has 4 memory slots, for 32GB support.
It takes a standard 2. I think the optical bay is one of the new thin line ones, 9. So if you put in a carriage for a second drive, be sure you check it to make sure you're ordering the right one. The W series is designed to be a "Workstation" I will be replacing my desktop with it soon. Nice job Lenovo The accessories, power cord, dock, and other such are completely new for the W I will be picking up a dock soon.
Works great, powerful and fast, as advertised. It is very good. See all reviews. Your recently viewed items and featured recommendations. Back to top.
