Lenovo’s latest ThinkPad laptop promises high performance packed inside a lightweight design.
On Monday, the Chinese PC maker unveiled the ThinkPad P1, a premium notebook that’ll start at $1949. The product is designed for power users. For instance, you can buy it with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor with 6 cores, or even an Intel Xeon E-2176M processor, which also features 6 cores.
Lenovo is marketing the P1 as its thinnest and lightest “mobile workstation” yet. The product itself measures at 0.72 inches thick and weighs at 3.76 pounds. That isn’t as thin as the company’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon notebook, a 14-inch laptop that measures at 0.63 inches in width and weighs at 2.49 pounds.
However, the P1 has a slightly bigger display at 15.6 inches, which can be upgraded to 4K resolution (3840 by 2160 pixels). And unlike the X1 Carbon, the new ThinkPad product can run its own dedicated Nvidia Quadro graphics card, either the P1000 or the P2000.
As a premium laptop, the P1 can also be configured to support up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, and up to 4 TB of SSD storage. Lenovo claims it can run for up to 13 hours on one battery charge.
The P1 retains the classic ThinkPad black carbon fiber
If you’re in the market for something a little less pricey, Lenovo is also launching the P72, which will retail at the starting price of $1799. It’s a heftier machine built around a 17-inch display and more of a desktop replacement. The P72 can also support Intel 8th generation Xeon and Core processors and a dedicated Nvidia Quadro graphics card.
Both new ThinkPads will be available at the end of this month.
