At NXT BLD in London, Lenovo is launching the next generation of its ThinkPad P Series with the release of five new ThinkPads, including the ThinkPad P73, ThinkPad P53, ThinkPad P1 Gen 2, and ThinkPad P53s and P43s.
The ThinkPad P53 is a powerful 15-in. mobile workstation, offering the power of the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 GPU with RT and Tensor cores—offering real-time ray tracing and AI acceleration. With its framework and design, the ThinkPad P53 serves as the multitool of workstations suited for a versatile mobile option. It allows users to access workflows previously reserved for those willing to carry a 17-in. mobile workstation. The addition of the fastest Intel Xeon and 9th Gen Core class CPUs with up to eight cores, including the Core i9, up to 128GB of memory and 6TB of storage gives a powerful product now all in the portability of a 15-in. chassis.
This mobile workstation also boasts a new OLED Touch display with Dolby Vision HDR for color and beep black levels. Lenovo is maximizing the portability of this workstation with a new 35% smaller power supply. The ThinkPad P53 offers professional components and breakthrough technology and features, equipped to handle everything from augmented reality and VR content creation to the deployment of mobile AI or demanding ISV workflows. The ThinkPad P53 will be available in July, starting at $1,799.
At 3.74 lbs. and 17.2 mm thin, Lenovo’s thinnest and lightest 15-in. workstation—the ThinkPad P1 Gen 2—is also launching today, offering ultra-premium design and workstation know-how. The ThinkPad P1 brings new levels of power, including the latest NVIDIA Quadro Turing T1000 and T2000 GPUs. The ThinkPad P1 also has new features, such as fast eight-core Intel 9th Gen Xeon and Core CPUs, and an OLED Touch display with Dolby Vision HDR—allowing users to experience images and video with expanded contrast and detail.
Now with a carbon fiber finish offered on a 4K UHD panel, the ThinkPad P1 is a workstation solution for professionals, across industries, running CAD applications to providing optimal storage for data-caching and real-time playback. The ThinkPad P1 Gen 2 will be available at the end of June, starting at $1,949.
Lenovo is also launching the bigger ThinkPad P73. This 17-in. workhorse offers maximum workspace with its 17.3-in. Dolby Vision 4K UHD screen and mobility with a 35% smaller power adaptor. Like the ThinkPad P53, this 17-in. chassis is packed with the latest Intel Xeon and Core processors and powerful NVIDIA Quadro RTX graphics. The ThinkPad P73 will be available in August, starting at $1,849.
The portfolio is complete with the ThinkPad P53s and ThinkPad P43s. The ThinkPad P53s combines the latest NVIDIA Quadro graphics and Intel Core processors—all in a thin and light chassis. A new addition and an even more compact option, the ThinkPad P43s is a mobile workstation. As the only 14-in. chassis in the portfolio, the ThinkPad P43s is a lightweight Ultrabook mobile workstation, designed to meet the needs of highly mobile entry-professionals. The ThinkPad P53s and ThinkPad P43s will be available in June and July, respectively, starting at $1,499.
For the first time, Lenovo is adding new X-Rite Pantone Factory Color Calibration to the ThinkPad P1 Gen 2, ThinkPad P53 and ThinkPad P73, ideal for those working in video content creation, oil and gas and other industries that require tprecise colors for the workflow. The factory color calibration profile is stored in the cloud to ensure accurate recalibration. This profile allows for dynamic switching between color spaces including sRGB, Adobe RGB and DCI-P3.
The entire ThinkPad portfolio is also equipped with advanced ThinkShield security features—from ThinkShutter to privacy screens to self-healing BIOS that recover when attacked or corrupted .
