The Lenovo W550s ThinkPad Mobile Workstation that we received came in the standard ThinkPad shipping box which was no different than the W540 we received earlier. This is a fine shipping box that protects the laptop inside without issues.

The W550s came with two heavy duty foam inserts to protect the laptop during shipping. These work very well to protect the laptop from drops, rough handling and punctures.

After taking the W550s out of the shipping foam and bag, we get our first look at the Lenovo ThinkPad W550s Mobile Workstation. The first impression is the W550s is fairly light weighing in at 5.47 lbs. The case is made of the same material as the W540 which is carbon fiber-plastic material and the surface texture has a matte feel to it, not very shiny, but overall it has high quality feel to it.

Taking out the rest of the shipping contents we find the battery which is 6 cells with a 48 Whr estimated running time. Then we see the power brick and power cable. Simply plug the power cable into the power brick and then to your wall socket.
