Meet the New ThinkPad P Series


ThinkPad P70: Designed for high-end professionals in industries ranging from media and entertainment to oil and gas, the Lenovo ThinkPad P70 introduces a 17-inch mobile workstation to the ThinkPad family. The new offering comes packed with the most memory and storage ever found in a mobile workstation. The ThinkPad P70 is loaded with up to 64 GB of DDR4 ECC memory and the ability to handle up to four storage devices and up to a terabyte of SSD storage, utilizing the latest PCIe technology for speeds up to five times faster than current SATA technology. Additionally, the ThinkPad P70 comes with two Intel Thunderbolt 3 ports for ultra-fast connectivity and a 4K UHD display or optional FHD touch. 


"Media and entertainment professionals invest in complex and incredibly resource-intensive applications to bring their creations to life. They are increasingly looking for the performance to run these applications in a mobile workstation," said visual effects industry pioneer Scott Ross. "The Lenovo ThinkPad P70 gives these users all the performance they need and more to continue to raise the bar for graphics innovation and move their industry forward. It's the best mobile workstation I've seen."


ThinkPad P50: Lenovo's thinnest and lightest full-function mobile workstation yet, the ThinkPad P50 features a beautiful 15.6-inch UHD 4K display and is certified to run users' most requested ISV applications. The ThinkPad P50 is a feature-rich, highly powerful mobile workstation for performance-seeking users. As the follow-on to the ThinkPad W541, the P50 builds on the innovation and purposeful design of Lenovo's industry-leading ThinkPad mobile workstations.

The Ultimate in Mobile Workstation Performance
The new ThinkPad P50 and P70 are mil-spec tested for maximum durability, and also come loaded with the most advanced components and features available in a mobile workstation. These machines are the first equipped with the new Intel Xeon Processor E3-1500M v5 product family, for lightning-fast performance and enhanced reliability for critical workstation applications. Both systems feature NVIDIA Quadro GPUs for unmatched graphics capability. The ThinkPad P Series also come with X-Rite Pantone color calibration, keeping colors accurate throughout the life of the product and protecting the customers' investment.

The ThinkPad P50 and P70 feature a brand new FLEX Performance Cooling system. The dual-fan design allows for cooler, quieter and faster performance. This revolutionary design allows for both optimal uptime, as dictated by the needs of the application, giving the user the ability to push the system harder and for longer periods of time.

Pricing and Availability
The new Lenovo ThinkPad P Series mobile workstations will be available starting in Q4 2015 through Lenovo business partners and onwww.lenovo.com. Pricing for the P50 begins at $1599, and the P70 begins at $1999.

 

My thoughts

Intel Xeon CPUs coming to mobile platforms may not be seen as noteworthy by a lot of people, but in actuality it is highly significant to business and professional use.  

Being a Graduate of Mechanical Engineering I have had to use professional grade applications, such as Solidworks and other similar programs on a laptop, so I have no doubt that Xeon laptops will have a large number of potential buyers for use as a mobile workstation.

One other thing that is very nice about these notebooks is their screens, with each sporting a high quality 4K screen, which is very nice to see on a 17" and 15.6" laptops. These laptops/mobile workstations will no doubt impress those that will use them, though that does come at a huge cost.

Its actually pretty cheap for what you are getting. No other laptop at those prices will match the quality and or features these offer, to top it off a 4k screen. Battery life is the only issue these things may have.Quote
