A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Workstation-class performance.
Think it's just another laptop? Think again. Designed to outperform standard laptops, the W520 is actually a mobile workstation — lightning-fast, heroically powerful and surprisingly portable. The work starts with the processor — from second generation Intel® Core™ i5 up to Core™ i7 quad core™ extreme, to keep your heavy-duty applications running flawlessly and boost your multi-tasking by 20 percent. Supplement that with the NVIDIA® Quadro® 1000M or 2000M graphics card with 2GB VRAM, professional-class graphics cards designed for up to 5x faster 3D performance and 8x faster computational simulation. Choose up to 32GB DDR3 RAM and you have one serious workstation — tested and certified by leading ISVs for more than 120 applications, including some of the most stringent in the industry.

Features for power users.
Performance like this should include the most advanced features — and it does. Powerful graphics require a display that lives up to what they have to show; feast your eyes on our 95-percent color gamut LED display in HD, HD+ or FHD. For the most accurate color workflow, opt for the industry's first embedded X-Rite Color Calibrator. Transfer files 10x faster with USB 3.0, depend on the 34mm ExpressCard and MMC slot or optional Smart Card reader, avail yourself of the multiburner combo drive and enjoy our best-in-class, ergonomic keyboard and Ultranav™ with our TrackPoint and touchpad. And when you're ready to talk about all the work you've done, you'll get superior Web conferencing and VoIP, thanks to full-duplex voice transmission support, dual digital microphone modes with advanced noise-cancellation technology, optimized speakers and a light-adaptive, 720p, HD webcam.

ThinkPad reliability.
Anything that works this hard is bound to go with you everywhere, so it needs to be tough. This brute has passed eight rugged MilSpec tests and comes with legendary ThinkPad durability features, such as an internal roll cage, spill-resistant keyboard and Active Protection System™ to prevent data loss in the event of a drop. You can also rely on security measures such as Rescue and Recovery™, self-encrypting drives, Hardware Password Manager, fingerprint ID and BIOS port lock for peace of mind. Even the environment can rely on the W520, with eco-friendly features including reduced greenhouse gas emissions, lower electricity consumption and compliance with RoHS, ENERGY STAR and EPEAT® Gold standards.
