Lenovo Thinkpad W540

My Lenovo W540 Laptop:

  • i7-4800MQ – Quad core 2.7ghz (3.7ghz turbo boost)
  • 24GB DDR3 RAM
  • 512GB SSD (2.5″ SATA)
  • UltraBay with 500GB HD (also have DVD-RW I can swap in)
  • 2GB nVidia Quadro K2100M graphics
  • 15.6″ 3K IPS display with color calibration sensor
  • W550 Trackpad mod (the stock W540 button-less Trackpad sucks!)
  • Integrated 720p webcam
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Ubuntu 20.04LTS

This is my mobile workstation I use for light gaming or working with virtual machines on the go, but since it’s so heavy, and such a power hog, most of the time I will travel with my thin and light X1 Carbon instead.  This was previously my wife’s photo editing laptop, but she upgraded to an X1 Extreme.
