Lenovo launched Monday's new ThinkPad P1 workstation, combining a 4K 15.6-inch display, high performance and portability. The system can integrate Intel's latest Core or Xeon processors with up to six kernels, NVIDIA's Quadro discrete graphics, and a massive amount of DRAM and solid state storage. At the same time, P1 is one of the thinnest and lightest laptops of its class on the market today.
Lenovo ThinkPad P1 mobile workstation is based on Intel's 8 th Core i5 / i7 / i9 or Xeon processor accompanied by up to 64GB DDR4-2667 (with or without ECC) and up to 4TB solid state -storage. It is remarkable that Lenovo uses user-upgradeable SO-DIMM memory modules, not soldered chips, like many other PC manufacturers do with ultra-thin laptops. In the case of graphics, models with discrete GPU feature NVIDIA's Quadro P1
Lenovo intends to offer two display options with its ThinkPad P1. The more advanced SKUs are equipped with a multitouch 15.6-inch 10-bit IPS LCD display with a 4K Ultra-HD (3840 × 2160) resolution, a 400 nits brightness, and cover 100% of the AdobeRGB color group. The more affordable models come with a non-touch Full HD (1920 × 1080) IPS panel with 300 rivets brightness and cover 100% of the sRGB color range.
Continue to Connect. On the wireless side of the Lenovo ThinkPad P1, the Intel Wireless Wireless 9560 802.11ac Wi-Fi solution has up to 1.73 Gbps throughput over 160 MHz channels, as well as support for Bluetooth 5.0 tech. In the case of hardware interfaces, the ThinkPad P1 is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports (unknown controls), two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type A connectors, a mini GbE header (requires a dongle), an HDMI 2.0 output, an optional smart card reader, a 4-in-1 card reader, a webcam, a fingerprint scanner and a TRRS audio port.
In terms of design, the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 takes many pages from the popular ThinkPad X1 Carbon series. It also comes in black carbon fiber chassis that is robust enough to cope with daily use of a road warrior. Lenovo says that the new ThinkPad P1 can withstand cold, heat, moisture, dust, fungus ( ed:! ), shock and other difficult environments, just like its smaller brother. In addition, the two flagship ThinkPads also have similar ergonomic keyboards.
Using carbon fiber allows Lenovo to make the laptop thinner and lighter than most 15.6-inch notebooks available today: it's only 17.8 mm thick and weighs 1.7 kg (3.76 pounds). Compared to the latest MacBook Pro 15.6-inch, the latter will be thinner (at 15.5 mm / 0.61 inch), but heavier (at 1.83 kg / 4.02 pounds). Meanwhile, the ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 UX550 is both thicker (18.9 mm / 0.74 inch) and heavier (1.86 kg / 4.1 lbs) as the new ThinkPad P1.
All ThinkPad P1 models will be equipped with an 80 Wh battery, but the company does not describe battery life, possibly because there will be too many different configurations. It is remarkable that Lenovo combines a special mini-135W charger with proprietary connection with P1, and the laptop can not use USB-C for charging.
