We have looked at a few of Lenovo's workstation-type notebooks and PCs, and today we are looking at a ThinkPad designed to be more of a mobile workstation hybrid notebook. Under the ThinkPad brand, the P51 can be configured in multiple ways.

You can get it with a consumer Core i7 CPU or an E3 Xeon, with up to an NVIDIA Quadro M1200 4GB GPU, mobile broadband, and even 64GB of memory.

Let's take a look at one very equipped notebook; the ThinkPad P51.



The ThinkPad P51 we used came with an Intel Xeon E3-1505v6 CPU (4C8T up to 4GHz, 45W TDP), a 15.6" 1080P 10-point multi-touch IPS display, an NVIDIA Quadro M2200 GPU, 16GB of DDR4, and a 512GB M.2 SSD.

Our unit also came with a 6-Cell 90WHr battery, Thunderbolt 3, a Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A wireless modem, and X-Rite Pantone color calibration. The notebook is 14.86"x9.93"x0.96-1.02" (LxWxH) and weighs 5.6lbs (2.5Kg).


The ThinkPad P51 starts at $1,340, but our version is closer to $2,300.
