It seems that at the following location, you can see all the latest specs (no prices) on the upcoming Lenovo W520 ThinkPad.
It seems that some industrious mail order catalog’s have listed the prices (notable, one of my favorites, ProVantage) so that gives me something to compare. I’m not sure I’ll get one right away, because they are pretty expensive and of course want the top of the line, but we will see what happens when they are actually released.
So, Here are some interesting things I’ve gleaned so far.
|4284-24U i7-2720QM 4GBx1 15.6" FHD 2000M 720p 500G 7200 Intel 6300||$2728.97|
|4284-4CU i7-2720QM 4GBx1 15.6" FHD 1000M 720p 500G 7200 Intel 6205||$2529.17|
This implies upgrading the graphics card from a 1000M to a 2000M is about $200. (both have 1920×1080 screens, 6MB Cache and can handle 1600ghz memory, though Crucial does not sell it yet. You can find more info on the graphics cards here: http://www.nvidia.com/page/quadrofx_go.html Seems that the 1000M has a gizillion processors and the 2000M has 2 gazillion, but both have the same specs. Go figure.

|i7-2720QM 4GBx1 15.6" FHD 1000M 720p 500G 7200 (Quad Core)||
|4276-2QU i7-2720QM 4GBx1 15.6" FHD 2000M 720p 500G 7200 Intel 6205||$1866.74|
|4276-23U i7-2920XM 4GBx4 15.6" FHD 2000M 720p 500G 7200 Intel 6205||$2809.17|
Clearly, I don’t get the pattern in the pricing besides there is a huge range. I need to get back to real work instead of this fantasy stuff.
