Lenovo ThinkPad P50 review


If performance is a priority, Lenovo's no-nonsense ThinkPad P50 should be your next laptop.

Today’s laptops are wonderful, but not everyone is a fan. Some dislike the trend towards mediocre keyboards, glossy displays, and limited connectivity. These fans of old-school laptops bemoan decreasing functionality alongside increasing prices. If...

Lenovo ThinkPad P50 Workstation (Xeon, 4K) Review


Better with 4K? Once again, we review the mobile workstation from Lenovo. This time, however, the ThinkPad P50 is equipped with a Xeon processor and a 4K screen, but the latter does not make sense for every user.

very good build quality and stability ; excellent input devices ; very high performance, also under load ; modern port selection ; many security features ; very fast PCIe-SSD ; quiet cooling solution ; can be configured ; 36-month warranty ; matte 4K...

... that is unnecessarily complicated ; display results do not meet the advertised specs ; PWM ; shorter runtimes and higher temperatures compared to the FHD configuration ; no RAID support

The review update of the ThinkPad P50 is very interesting, but it does not really make it easier to choose the right model for potential buyers. We want to start with two positive aspects: The Turbo Boost problem, which affected the benchmark results...

Lenovo ThinkPad P50 Review: A Preeminent Workstation Laptop Worth Every Penny


If you have a few minutes, my Lenovo ThinkPad P50 review will explain why this member of Lenovo's newest workhorse line of laptops has wooed me so thoroughly.

Great look and solid finish. A powerhouse. Future proof thanks to simple and abundant expansion options. Best keyboard on a laptop I have ever used. Bright and color-rich screen. Trackpad that has been tuned to perfection.

Could be lighter. Price may turn some off, but it is not unreasonable. Better battery life is something we will always ask for.

I doubt I could have been any clearer regarding my feelings concerning the Lenovo Thinkpad P50. Forget the gimmicks. Forget the empty rhetoric by companies telling you that under powered, thin laptops, barren of functionality are somehow the future of...

Lenovo ThinkPad P50 & ThinkPad P70


The Lenovo ThinkPad P70 and P50 are lumberjacks among laptops. This mobile workstation series has higher end NVIDIA Quadro graphics and 45 watt, quad core Intel Skylake Core i7 and Xeon CPUs. In fact, our P50 and P70 have the new Intel mobile Xeon, a...

Very strong performance, durable, great keyboards, good battery life. Some configs support a Wacom AES pen

If you're looking for slim and light mobile workstations, these aren't them

If you're in the market for a traditional 15 or 17 inch mobile workstation with a robust build, excellent keyboard and impressive high color gamut 4K displays, the Lenovo ThinkPad P50 and P70 merit strong consideration. Even more interesting is the...

Great linux laptop


I bought this a month ago and cannot rate it more highly. Arch Linux worked out of the box extremely well. Don't listen to other reviewers saying this will not work with Linux. If you look into it you will find that official support for Skylake chips...

Great Computer! Well built. Great Features. But...


I have only had this computer for about a week, and just love it. Great build quality, great cooling, fast, many outputs and inputs. BUT, if you use your laptop at night, it's almost impossible to see the keyboards. No backlighting, no light to shine...

Great components and sub-par release and service


The actual laptop and it's components are top notch, probably because Lenovo doesn't actually make them. The reason for the 1-star are the following:\n\n1. I have been waiting to order this laptop since Lenovo said it would be released in November...
