Hi,

I'm looking to buy a Lenovo W700. Is it the right time to but it? Lenovo offers 20% discount right now or should I wait? Will they release i7 based ThinkPad?

I play games with high resolution, and am looking forward to play Diablo 3.


Thanks

Well, not that I would buy a W700 for the express intent of playing games, I would buy it for content creation / development and fell good knowing i could play games if i wanted to.

That said, I played round the config:

System components


Intel Core 2 Duo processor T9600 (2.8GHz 1066MHz 6MBL2)


Genuine Windows 7 Professional 64


17" WUXGA 400NIT TFT


NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M 128-core CUDA parallel computing processor 1GB (dedicated)


2 GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 1067MHz SODIMM Memory (1 DIMM)


Ultranav + Fingerprint Reader


Non-RAID HDD, 320 GB Hard Disk Drive, 5400rpm


DVD Recordable 8x Max Ultrabay Enhanced (Serial ATA)


Express Card(54mm) + Express Card(34mm)


Intel WiFi Link 5300 (AGN) with My WiFi Technology


9 cell Li-Ion Battery

$1918.24

Considering they JUST pulled the Y730 this is the only 17inch you can get from them.

I had thought we'd be seeing i7 and i5 from Lenovo by February 2010, but with the upcoming 750???? (guessing because it's 450, 550, and 650) I suppose its anyone's guess. . I certainly haven't heard anything.
