A laptop that won’t quit – built for gamers who won’t, either – the Y700 is relentlessly fast, powerful, and loaded with multimedia-rich features. Wrap its stalwart components in a viscerally stylish exterior, and you have a system as unyielding as the way you play.
The first thing we do when we unpack a new laptop is open the lid and take a deep sniff to rate the smell. Not really, but it’s some criteria we’re thinking of adding to our reviews. The good news on this? The P70 doesn’t stink. If it has any smell at all, it would be that of POWER. Lenovo is not skimping here folks. As a matter of fact, this is Lenovo’s first mobile laptop featuring the Intel Xeon (Skylake) processor, and the first 17″ workstation from Lenovo in, let’s see, FIVE YEARS. The W7XX series was its predecessor–remember the integrated Wacom digitizer and the 10.6″ secondary slide-out screen? Well, you won’t see those on the P70, but you can be sure Lenovo has packed the max amount of updated hardware, shaved off a little weight and boosted battery power.
When you buy this laptop, you’ll be tossing in your bag 7.5+ pounds of matte-black chassis wrapped storage drives, ports and processors strapped into a magnesium frame with stiff steel hinges that hold the 4K UHD (or FHD) IPS screen. It’s signature Lenovo Brutalist design (that honestly, we love) rugged, minimal and edgy while offering an independent individualism that screams, “I will take over the entire surface of this desktop with this laptop and you will like it.”
It has better battery life than other large laptops we’ve tested–8.5 hours max (per the spec sheet) and 2.5 hours with our regular use test. This, with attention to weight and port locations, makes it magnificent for being more mobile between office and shop, plus you’ll have the screen size to show half the people on the airplane what you’re working on/watching.
With 50,000+ employees and $46B+ in global sales in 160 countries, Lenovo is a global leader in innovative consumer, commercial and enterprise technologies.
As a member of the Fortune Global 500, and recently identified in Interbrand’s 100 most valuable global brands report, Lenovo is bigger and stronger than ever thanks to not only organic growth, but also due to the recent acquisitions of Motorola Mobility and IBM’s x86 Server business.
Our portfolio of high-quality, secure products and services covers PCs (including the legendary Think and multimode YOGA brands), workstations, servers, storage, smart TVs and a family of mobile products like smartphones (including the Motorola brand), tablets and apps.
Our product line includes: YOGA, Thinkpad, Y Series gaming, Ideacentre, Thinkcentre, Erazer, Moto 360 and Moto X
Lenovo also has a diverse employee culture. As a true global company, our leaders and employees come from various cultures across the globe. Everyone at Lenovo takes great pride in our ability to attract top talent from diverse backgrounds. We view our differences as a source of strength in building a culture that helps us achieve our goals.
[About Samsung Printing Solutions] Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is opening possibilities and creating new opportunities for success in the rapidly changing business environment. Since 1982, our printing business, Samsung Printing Solutions, has been exploring and delivering digital revolution to the printing industry with solutions that transform workplaces into smart offices. Today, as a leader in smart office innovation, we continue to provide smart, fast and reliable printing devices and solutions based on cutting-edge technologies.
Muratec America, Inc., manufacturer of multifunction office equipment and business productivity solutions, announces the Precision Label Series of digital presses, designed to produce short run, high-definition digital color labels. “These products signal a new era for Muratec,” said Jim D’Emidio, president, Muratec America, Inc. “The label market is exploding year-over-year and the demand for short-run capabilities is one of the hottest growth areas. Most dealers we’ve approached with our label presses were able to quickly identify current customers who could benefit from a short-run digital label press. With a background in on-site service, customer support and professional sales approaches, the office equipment dealer channel is perfect to distribute these solutions.” In conjunction with the Precision Label Series product launch, Muratec has created a program assisting dealers in building an internal foundation to successfully prospect, sell, install and support these presses. Dealers who wish to add the PLS-series presses to their line-up will have access to a three-day, on-site workshop, which focuses on prospect identification and marketing, label substrates and applications, digital label press installation, key operator training, break/fix service and ROI calculation for end customers. “Muratec has always believed in the office equipment dealer,” said D’Emidio. “But we recognized early on that in order for the PLS-series to be successful, we had to develop a program to give our dealers the necessary tools to market, sell and support these devices. We’ve added personnel with decades of experience in the label world and they’re actively sharing their strategies and knowledge with our dealers. We also have one of the most tenured support staffs in the industry ready to assist.” Organizations that rely on labels use Muratec’s Precision Label Series to bring label printing in-house and significantly reduce their label spend, waste and production time. “It’s standard practice for a label converter to have a 2-3 week lead time,” said Lou Stricklin, director, marketing and sales support. “The PLS-series label presses can have labels printed, laminated, die-cut and ready for application in just hours, saving time and money. It’s also a huge competitive advantage for our customers to be able to instantly tweak packaging to address sudden changes in the market.” Muratec’s PLS-2112 can print continuous-fed media or cut sheets, up to 8.5” wide, on a variety of media; the PLS-2112F, Muratec’s digital finishing system, creates true on-the shelf visual separation by giving labels unique shapes, styles and sizes. “With the PLS-2112F, the only limit is your imagination,” Stricklin said. “In the past, organizations had to break the bank in order to produce die-cut labels; however, with the PLS-2112F, they can produce exceptional labels that deliver a competitive advantage and higher value perception on the shelf.”
Samsung’s MX7 line of MFPs include a 2,250-sheet booklet finisher and a 3,250-sheet high-volume finisher, which automatically staples up to 65 sheets. The MX7 models help keep documents such as books, screenplays and reports organized while printing. After all, nothing can be more frustrating than disorder when it comes to big print jobs.
As publishers are often not compensated until after their work has been purchased or published, cost-efficiency is a high priority for anyone in this industry. Fortunately, Samsung MFPs offer best-in-class figures for maximum monthly duty, resulting in high-durability and reduced overheads.
