Designed for the power-hungry users, the Lenovo ThinkPad P50 and P70 offer up to 64GB of RAM the most memory on any mobile workstation,with up to 1TB of SSD storage, and two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports for super-fast data transfer. Thanks to Intel’s new high-end Xeon processors Lenovo has incorporated the new super-chips into these hefty machines.
Based on the skylake architecture, the Xeon processors powers both laptops. The Xeon processors are built with the same 14nm process as its Broadwell predecessor, but is architecturally revamped. Essentially, these notebooks are the dreadnoughts of the mobile PC world: big and very powerful.
The new P50 and P70 are the first laptops to incorporate Skylake chip architecture, and they are not based on thin and slim design like what we see with laptops like the new 12-inch MacBook. At 15.6-inch P50 and 17-inch P70 weighing in at 2540 grams and 3447 grams respectively, these laptops are nothing close to the Macbook as they are two and a half times as heavy as the 907 gram MacBook.
The P50 starts at $1,599 and for the P70 at $1,999, with customers given their choice of operating system, including Windows 10, 8.1, 7, or Ubuntu, as well as the option of 4K and touch displays.
