Lenovo ThinkPad P70 review

 

The first Xeon-powered mobile workstation

Powerful performance ; Integrated colorimeter ; Assortment of ports ; 4K display

Battery not replaceable ; Heavy

If you don't mind the large dimensions and 7.6-pound weight of the ThinkPad P70, you'll be rewarded with a powerful mobile workstation with Intel's Skylake or mobile Xeon processors.

The Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Review: Mobile Xeon Workstation

 

It's been almost a year now since Lenovo first announced the new P50 and P70 mobile workstations, which were 15-inch and 17-inch notebooks, respectively. The part of the announcement which likely caused the most buzz was that Intel was now going to...

Certainly there will be those that detract from the P70 due to the price, but that’s to be expected. It’s easy to say that the businesses that need these devices are willing to pay the premium, but it really is the case. The Lenovo ThinkPad P70...

Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Review

 

Thanks to bleeding-edge performance, accurate color output and a best-in-class keyboard, the ThinkPad P70 is the 17-inch mobile workstation to beat.

Great, workstation-class performance; Accurate 4K screen; Best-in-class keyboard and touchpad; Long battery life for its class

Heavy; 4K video playback issues on Windows 7

Lenovo ThinkPad P70-20ER000XUS Workstation Review

 

Pricey yet powerful. Lenovo's latest P70 configuration features an Intel Xeon Skylake CPU and bumps the GPU to an NVIDIA M4000M, while also introducing NVMe SSD storage. How do these upgrades affect overall performance? And is this still a workstation...

strong processing performance from both CPU and GPU ; powerful workstation performance ; extremely fast storage speed ; solid build quality ; ECC memory for greater stability ; quiet operation while idle

high idle temperatures ; high idle power consumption ; weak battery performance ; poor speakers ; odd stress test results show plummenting GPU performance under CPU stress ; low PWM frequency once again across all brightness settings lower than maximum

A lot of variables combine to create a strong mobile workstation, but when you boil it all down, the most critical of all aspects are generally stability, CPU/GPU performance, and storage speed. The Lenovo P70-20ER000XUS reveals itself as more than...

Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Workstation Review

 

The return of the 17-inch workstation. Lenovo now offers a 17-inch workstation for the first time in almost five years. Contrary to the current trend, however, you do not just get a consumer device with professional components. Was it worth the wait?

very good 4K display, excellent performance, even under load, very good build quality and stability, excellent input devices, modern ports, many security features, low temperatures, quiet cooling solution, good battery runtimes, can be configured, good...

integrated color calibrator of the review unit does not deliver ideal results, occasional driver and scaling issues of our review unit with Windows 7, bad speakers, mediocre USB 3.0 performance, annoying screen bleeding, PWM below 95 % brightness, bad...

Lenovo's ThinkPad P70 is an excellent re-entry into the segment of 17-inch workstations. We especially like that Lenovo supposedly listened to the feedback of customers and reversed some controversial design decisions of previous generations and even...

Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Review and Ratings

 

It's more luggable than portable, but Lenovo's 17.3-inch workstation puts Intel's latest Xeon and Nvidia's latest Quadro silicon to good use.

Mighty performance ; Stellar 4K IPS screen with color calibrator ; Plenty of ports including two Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ; Decent battery life

Heavy and bulky ; Minimal warranty

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

Best ThinkPad Ever

 

The P70 is the latest in a long line of ThinkPads I have owned (T60, T400s etc.) beginning with the very first color notebook IBM made. I can say without a doubt this is the best machine I have every owned. The 4K screen is simply gorgeous and a...

Consumer review (lenovo.com)

Excellent performance, good feature set.

 

A very powerful machine, generally well-designed for power users. PCI NVMe drives are outstanding and amazingly fast--boot times are astonishing. Memory capacity is up to snuff at up to 64 GM RAM. 4K screen is clear, sharp and excellent. Xeon iCPU s a...

Consumer review (lenovo.com)

Powerful and quiet, but beware of sound pops!

 

Great laptop that's powerful and so quiet. Palm rests do not get warm at all. It's a very heavy laptop and I knew when I was getting. The one thing annoys me is I get random sound pops from the speaker. Sometimes it happens when I open the lid from...
