The Lenovo ThinkPad P51 packaging is pretty straightforward. The notebook is well protected in the box, as are the accessories. The battery is not installed in the notebook when it's shipped, you will find it in the accessory box.
Accessories include a email@example.com 170W AC/DC power supply. Lenovo Active Pen with battery, 90Wh battery, and manuals.
The top and bottom of the unit use a strong plastic composite that doesn't pick up fingerprints as easily as a rubber-coated metal surface, but it will pick up oil. The notebook feels very durable, and the hinges are tight and sturdy. The "I" in ThinkPad lights up when the notebook is turned on. The bottom of the notebook features four rubber feet and many vents for cooling.
The notebook features exhaust vents at the rear and sides. At the rear of the notebook, we find two USB 3.0 ports (one is always on), 1Gbit LAN, Thunderbolt 3.0, HDMI, and DC power input. On the left side, we find a 4-in-1 card reader and an ExpressCard/34mm slot. On the right side, we find two more USB 3.0 ports, mini-DP 1.2 port, Kensington lock slot, and headphone/mic jack.
The Lenovo ThinkPad P51 has a beautiful display, and although it is 1080P, I felt that the quality of the picture was quite good. I will say it does not get as bright as I would personally like. The active pen and touchscreen go together well in case you want to write or draw with the pen. The QWERTY keyboard also has a number pad attached to it, and you get two sets of mouse buttons as well as the soft dome TrackPoint cap.
The keyboard has many shortcuts, and you can find out everything the notebook has to offer through the Lenovo Companion application. I don't like how the "Ctrl" key isn't all the way in the lower left-hand corner, and there is a specific option to swap the functionality of both the "Fn" and "Ctrl" keys. The keyboard does have a backlight, and it's as bright as many other keyboards, but you can't change the color of the light.
A 720P HD camera and dual-array microphone are located at the top of the lid. An X-Rite Pantone color calibration sensor is built into our unit and can calibrate the colors on the display.
