Lenovo ThinkPad W700

Lenova has announced the ThinkPad W700, a laptop featuring a trio of snazzy features that are sure to impress designers, graphic artists, photographers and CAD artists. The W700 has an integral Wacom tablet, a professional grade, WUXGA display with 400 nit brightness and an auto colour-calibration sensor that allows for on-the-fly adjustments. If that’s not enough to make you salivate then notice the separate numerical keypad and the fingerprint scanner - sweet!

The machine also boasts some fairly impressive specifications including:

  • 3 GHz Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor
  • up to 8GB DDR3 RAM
  • 1GB NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M graphics
  • dual HDD bays offering RAID 0 or 1 configurations (SSDs are an option)

There are other goodies too!

But what a butt-ugly machine it is. I mean seriously, can’t Jonathan Ive be cloned and installed in every hardware designers shop? I’d hate to have to type on that thing - the keyboard looks to be awkwardly placed relative to the front edge of the case.

RC F-16… With Afterburner

I’m damned if this isn’t the most amazing radio-controlled aircraft I’ve ever seen. Check out the afterburner effect. How much does one of these babies cost? How long does it take to put together? Can I have one? Please?

Great flying too!

Aw heck dude, you need to enable JavaScript and install the QuickTime Player if you want to watch this thrilling video!
