LAS VEGAS — At Autodesk University 2015, here, Lenovo unveiled the ThinkPad P40 Yoga, a high-performing mobile workstation. The Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga delivers a first-class digital sketching experience, along with mobile workstation performance and reliability.
“Professionals in creative industries have long demanded the ability to sketch and design freely and bring those designs to life in a single workflow,” says Rob Herman, executive director, workstations, Lenovo. “The demands of professional applications are too great for a tablet alone, so this has been impossible – until now. Our new ThinkPad P40 Yoga is the first machine that truly provides both the sketching experience of a tablet and the power of an ISV-certified workstation.”
A multimode mobile workstation, the ThinkPad P40 Yoga offers the versatility to work across four modes — laptop, stand, tent and tablet — giving professionals lots of flexibility. The system provides a responsive pen and touchscreen powered by the Wacom Active ES technology, offering a full 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity on a high-res (2560x1440) IPS display. For a comfortable and realistic sketching experience, the rechargeable ThinkPad Pen Pro is included, along with additional pen tips providing varied levels of tactile feedback for the professional community.
Along with its premium sketching capabilities, Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga offers mobile workstation performance without compromise. Powered by an Nvidia Quadro M500M GPU with 2GB VRAM, the ThinkPad P40 Yoga is certified to run a full range of professional applications. Moreover, the system also features an Intel 6th Generation Core i7 CPU and up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD storage for ultrafast processing.
And for the first time in a mobile workstation, the Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga features Lenovo’s innovative Lift ‘n Lock keyboard with a frame that automatically rises around the keys when the Yoga device switches into tablet mode, giving users the ability to work in a more comfortable and efficient manner.
Along with the ThinkPad P40 Yoga, Lenovo also introduced the ThinkPad P50s and ThinkStation P310. The ThinkPad P50s completes the ThinkPad P Series family, featuring a more affordable premium functionality and advanced performance in a thinner, lighter mobile workstation. Innovative features of the ThinkPad P50s include a 3K IPS display and Lenovo Power Bridge technology, which allows for up to 17 hours of battery life.
The newest addition to the Lenovo ThinkStation P Series, the ThinkStation P310, builds on the success of the Lenovo ThinkStation P300, offering an entry-level machine with the advanced technology of a high-end workstation. Featuring the new Intel Xeon E3-1200v5 and the latest Nvidia GPU technology, the system also doubles the memory capacity of previous entry-level workstations, offering up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and support for FLEX drives with Samsung M.2 NVMe SSDs.
The Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga can be purchased with the optional battery-powered ThinkPad Pen Pro Lenovo’s advanced stylus that uses industry-leading Wacom technology for enhanced precision and comfort. Additionally, the ThinkPad P40 Yoga supports Lenovo OneLink+, the next generation cable docking solution enabling all docking functions and power delivery in a single connection.
