Lenovo W701 to sport quad-core i7 from Intel?
A recent FCC filing reveals that a new notebook from Lenovo is coming soon, powered by a 2GHz Intel chip believed to be the quad-core Core i7-920XM. The FCC filing points to the finished product as the ThinkPad W701 and confirms this with the presence of a Wacom digitizer, which has only shipped as part of the earlier W700.
Otherwise, the W701 will ship with a 320GB Fujitsu hard drive, and include a 17-inch, 1920x1200 display built by Samsung. If shipped as described, the move to Core i7 may bump up the price of the W701 compared to the current W700, which starts at $2,149. [via Engadget]
