This week, Lenovo announced two new ThinkPad laptops which it calls the "highest-performing mobile workstations ever."
At the SIGGRAPH 2015 Conference and Exhibition on Monday, Lenovo unveiled the ThinkPad P50 and P70 which promise professional-grade performance on the go. "We've built features into these machines that were previously unachievable in a notebook, making them the most versatile and highest-performing mobile workstations ever," said Victor Rios, vice president and general manager of Workstations at Lenovo, in a statement on the launch. "We're focused on making sure users have the tools necessary to drive innovation. That is why we are expanding our portfolio and raising the standard of mobile workstation performance. Introducing the ThinkPad P Series unites our mobile portfolio with our existing award-winning line of tower workstations, the ThinkStation P Series."
The ThinkPad P50 and P70 are the first laptops to feature Intel's sixth-generation Skylake architecture. "We are excited to bring Intel Xeon's legacy of performance, manageability and reliability to mobile workstations," said Navin Shenoy, vice president and general manager, Mobility Client Platforms Group, Intel. "Now the power of Intel Xeon is in a notebook that can handle the unique compute and graphics intensive needs of engineers and designers." Both laptops run Windows 10 and feature NVIDIA Quadro GPUs, X-Rite Pantone color calibration, and the revolutionary new FLEX Performance Cooling system. The 15.6 inch ThinkPad P50 and 17 inch ThinkPad P70 will be available in the fourth quarter of 2015 and pricing starts at $1,599 and $1,999, respectively. UK pricing was not revealed at this time, but Lenovo is expected to launch the ThinkPad P50 in November and P70 in December in EMEA.
