The ThinkPad W530 2438-4BU 15.6" Notebook Computer from Lenovo takes the no-nonsense, business-oriented side of Lenovo ThinkPad notebooks and adds a touch of personality for small- to medium-sized businesses. The result is a 15.6" Lenovo notebook computer that weighs 6.19 pounds. This Lenovo notebook is also wrapped in a refined, soft matte coating with a sleek black finish.
The 15.6" widescreen display features LED lamps, which brighten faster, use less power and provide better image quality than their CCFL counterparts. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is also the standard for HDTVs. The 1600 x 900 native resolution is supported by a hybrid graphics system consisting of an nVIDIA Quadro K1000M with 2GB of discrete memory and integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000. The anti-glare coating allows you to use this Lenovo notebook in bright rooms or outdoors in the sunlight.
The system is powered by a quad-core Ivy Bridge 2.6GHz Intel Core i7-3720QM processor. It also has 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM, a 500GB 7200rpm hard drive, a 4-in-1 media card reader, a SuperMulti DVD burner, 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam and microphone. There are also built-in stereo speakers.
While Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) is the installed operating system, this Lenovo notebook comes with a DVD that allows you to upgrade to Windows 8. Windows 8 replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles that update in real-time, which provide faster access to news, weather forecasts, sports scores, social network updates and more. Windows 8 also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 provides a unique user experience.
