  1. Awsome W510, I just got mine and the new Dock station and I have my Samsung 22in Monitor connected to the DVI port on the back.
    This is truly an awsome laptop, super responsive and very very good graphics.
    The W510 looks just like the T510 model but with more powwerful graphics and more capacity for memory.
    Only thing I dont understand yet is the Digital Port on the left side, I have not seen these cables yet in the stores.
    battery life is great over 4 hours so far.
    I have been a Thinkpad owner for over 15 years and by far this is the very best I have seen since the 770Z thinkpad and the 600X Thnkpad.
    Lenovo is also doing great with its customer servie in Atlanta, GA.

  2. i agree, this is the most powerful laptop so far you can get. i believed lenovo thought hard about doing 16:9 screen, Get real!
    Great job Lenovo, even apple mac dont have this powerful specs.

  3. 16×9 is the new standard — get real. Bravo Lenovo. I’m getting a W510 even though I’m a heavy business user.

  4. W510 has a wider screen 16 x 9… too wide for us business users. No Thanks Lenovo – 16 x 10 was plenty wide.
    I’ll wait a year to see if you folks (Lenovo) return to your senses (16 x 10)
