Lenovo has announced the ThinkPad P50 and ThinkPad P70 laptops, which offer Intel’s latest Skylake processors, up to 64GB of RAM, USB-C ports, and optional 4K displays. The Lenovo ThinkPad P50 and P70 are described as the “highest-performing mobile workstations ever”, and are the first to feature Intel’s new Xeon E3-1500M v5processors family based on the recently launched Skylake architecture. Victor Rios (vice president and general manager, Workstations, Lenovo) said :
“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, 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”.
These are certainly nothing like the new MacBook, with the 15.6-inch P50 and 17-inch P70 weighing in at 5.6 pounds and 7.6 pounds respectively. The ThinkPad P70 goes on sale throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East from November, while the ThinkPad P50 will launch in the same markets in December. Lenovo did not confirm UK pricing, but elsewhere the ThinkPad P70 will start at $1,999 while the ThinkPad P50 starts at $1,599.
