Lenovo Unveils a Powerhouse Line Up with P40 Yoga Convertible and ThinkPad P50s
if you’re looking to buy a Windows system at this point in time, Lenovo’s new offerings deserve your attention. Lenovo has unveiled the ThinkPad P40 Yoga, a hybrid PC with professional-grade specs and the ThinkPad P50s, a mobile workstation par excellence.
The Lenovo P40 Yoga Convertible
The P40 Yoga Convertible combines the multiple usage modes with some beefy internals. Let’s take a look at its specs.
The display on this hybrid is a 14″ panel with 1080p (1080 x 1920) or 2K (2560 x 1440) resolution configurations available. It is touch-enabled by default, but more importantly, it also comes bundled with a ThinkPad Pen Pro stylus (with adjustable pen tips) which utilizes Wacom’s Active ES Input technology.
The display supports 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity on the display while the stylus can be neatly tucked in a built-in slot when not in use. With Wacom, Lenovo has calibrated the system in such a manner as to provide an authentic “pen to paper” experience.
Under the hood, you get a sixth-generation Intel Core i7 processor with up to 16 GB of RAM, Nvidia Quadro M500M with 2 GB VRAM and a 512 GB solid state drive.
The design of the P40 is also MIL certified, meaning it is sturdy enough to take a fall or two. It also features the company’s Lift ‘n Lock technology which raises the keyboard around the keys when in tablet mode.
Convertibles never come in cheap and that is exactly the case here. The ThinkPad P40 Yoga will start at a not-so-insignificant $1399 for the entry-level model.
Lenovo ThinkPad P50s
For those who aren’t looking for hybrids but something a bit more traditional, the ThinkPad P50s fits the bill. Its marketed as the quintessential ‘mobile workstation’. It doesn’t feature the popular hinge, but instead comes with a larger 15.6″ display with an impressive 3K resolution (2880 x 1620 pixels).
The internals in this laptop are the same as on the Yoga P40 for the most part. It does support up to 32 GB of RAM though as well as Lenovo’s Power Bridge technology for boosting the battery life up to 17 hours through an external supply. The ThinkPad P50s will start at a gulp-inducing $1299.
