Lenovo is on a roll with the newly unveiled Thinkpad P72 and the Thinkpad P1, seen above, two laptop workstations for any taste (but not budget!).
For those wanting a powerful workstation, the Thinkpad P72 packs a punch with a huge 17.3-inch IPS screen and plenty under the hood. For portability, the Thinkpad P1 smashes Lenovo’s records and offers an incredibly lightweight notebook. Let’s see what each of them brings.
The Thinkpad P72’s 17.3-inch IPS screen will be available in either 1920 x 1080 with 300 nits brightness and support for 100% of the Adobe RGB space or 3840 x 2160 with a brightness of 400 nits and 72% NTSC color gamut. Because these Thinkpads are clearly designed for professional users, under the hood Lenovo used the latest Intel Core i9 processors, though the model numbers are not yet known. A Thinkpad P72 can have a Nvidia Quadro P5200 graphics card and 4 x 32 GB of DDR4 system memory, with up to 6 TB of storage, if you customized it properly.
However, if you’re on the go and can’t handle the 7.5 pounds starting weight (or the $1949 starting price), let’s look at the gorgeous and feather-light Thinkpad P1.
The Thinkpad P1 offers a 35 percent reduction from previous workstation laptops – at 3.76 pounds and just 18.4 mm thickness, it’s the lightest Lenovo offering in the company’s history. However, no concessions seem to have been made on the specs front.
The 15.6-inch screen offers 4K, the graphics are handled by NVIDIA’s Quadro P series and there’s the 8th gen Intel Core with up to 4.6 GHz speed to go along with 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. While it’s not quite as impressive as 6 TB of storage like the Thinkpad P72, the Thinkpad P1 does offer more than enough with 4 TB.
This sleek laptop workstation will start at $1799 and will be available, just like its 17.3-inch big brother, at the end of August.
