Lenovo today took the wraps off of a pair of new ThinkPad workstations built for those who need to do some heavy lifting while on the go. The one that is likely to catch the most attention is the new ThinkPad P1, which was built with the power you'd expect from a workstation, but in a pretty svelte design that measures 0.72 inches thick and 3.76 pounds.
Aside from its thin frame, the ThinkPad P1 is blacked out from head to toe, with only the red accents from Lenovo's signature nub and mouse buttons breaking things up. As for specs, you're looking at a 15.6-inch 4K (or 1080p) IPS display, along with processor options ranging up to Intel's 8th Gen Xeon and Core processors. That's alongside up to 64GB of RAM, up to 4TB of NVMe SSD storage, and NVIDIA Quadro P2000 graphics.
Rounding things out is a bevy of ports, including two Thunderbolt 3-enabled USB Type-C ports, two USB 3.1 ports, a single HDMI, one ethernet and a smart card reader.
The ThinkPad P1 will be available starting at the end of August for $1,949.
In addition to the P1, Lenovo is debuting the ThinkPad P72, which is a bit chunkier at 7.5 pounds and 1.02 inches thick. Packed inside is a 17.3-inch display IPS display with 4K and 1080p options. The P72 also sports 8th Gen Intel Xeon and Core processors, up to 128GB of RAM, and up to 6TB of storage. As for graphics, you're looking at up to an NVIDIA Quadro P5200.
As with the P1, the P72 also includes a wide variety of ports. There are two Thunderbolt 3 slots, three USB 3.1 ports, a single ethernet port, one Mini Display Port, and a smart card reader.
The ThinkPad P72 will also be available at the end of August, starting at $1,799.
