The new ThinkPad P1 is the most compact of them all at just 18.4mm thick and weighing 3.76 pounds, but it packs a 15.6-inch 4K display. Inside, we have the 8th-gen Intel Core or Xeon CPUs, up to the NVIDIA Quadro P2000, up to 64GB of RAM, and up to 4TB of NVMe SSD. There's also an infrared camera, Bluetooth 5.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Windows 10. Connectivity wise Lenovo doesn't disappoint with 2 x Thunderbolt USB-C ports, 2 x USB-A ports, HDMI 2.0, mini GbE, and a smart card reader.

The higher-end ThinkPad P72 is a huge 17.3-inch mobile workstation that has the same Intel Core and Xeon options, but up to 128GB of RAM, up to NVIDIA's higher-end Quadro P5200 GPU, and up to a huge 6TB of SSD. The 17.3-inch ThinkPad P72 is much thicker at 25.9mm, and weighs 7.5 pounds. But what a laptop.
