Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Packs Xeon CPU, 64GB of RAM Into Super-Slim Package

The ThinkPad P1

Lenovo today revealed two new ThinkPads, including its thinnest workstation ever, the ThinkPad P1 and a powerful machine with top-of-the-line specs, the ThinkPad P72. They will be available at the end of August starting at $1,949 for the P1 and $1,799 for the P72.

The P1 is thin for a 15-inch workstation at 0.7 inches, and packs the latest 8th Gen Intel Xeon and Core (up to Core i9) processors, up to 64GB of RAM and up to 4TB of NVMEe SSD storage. Lenovo also suggests the the ThinkPad P1 has a power supply that’s 35 percent smaller than previous mobile workstations, making the charger just as portable. Lenovo has been long-rumored to be releasing a 15-inch thin and powerful notebook, and now it’s finally here.

The ThinkPad P72 eschews style and size for power. It offers Xeon and Core processors and up to an Nvidia Quadro P5200 GPU, as well as up to 128GB of RAM. Lenovo claims the 17.3-inch, 4K display will offer up to 400 nits of brightness. But at a full-inch thick and a hefty 7.5 pounds, this one isn’t designed for portability.

The announcements were timed with the Siggraph computer graphics conference taking place in Vancouver.

    "this one isn’t designed for portability"

    It's still a laptop. It's still portable. It weighs less than a gallon of water, and is only an inch thick. It's not going to be breaking anyone's back.

    It's thinking like this that has cell phones getting thinner and thinner each year. Screw your thin laptops and phones. I want more power and longer battery life.

    OIZIK They claim that the P72's battery life is up to 18 hours .... so there you go.
    Another thing regarding the P1, where are the speaker grills??

    Ozik, the P72 has the legal maximum battery capacity for flight. 99whrs. Going any higher would change this from "less mobile" to immobile.
