Lenovo Introduces Thin, Lightweight ThinkPad P1 Mobile Workstation

VANCOUVER — Lenovo has added to its ThinkPad (www.lenovo.com/thinkworkstations) mobile workstation portfolio with the introduction of the ThinkPad P1, the company’s thinnest, lightest and sleekest mobile workstation to date. The ThinkPad P1 fulfills the desire for workstation performance and reliability in a thin and lightweight design. 
The new P1 gives users a premium experience, with its signature, black finish, glass touchpad and seamless keyboard. Attention to detail even extends to the power supply. Customers know a thin and light workstation is nothing if it still comes with a bulky power supply. That’s why the ThinkPad P1 power supply is 35 percent smaller and lighter than predecessors.

Certified for key ISV applications, the ThinkPad P1 features 8th Gen Intel Xeon and Core processors, including support for the Core i9 CPU, and delivers ECC memory support and clocks speeds up to 4.6GHz. Users can also enjoy a boost in performance with the latest Nvidia Quadro P1000 and P2000 professional graphics cards.

In addition to its graphics and processors, the mobile workstation offers a 15-inch, 4K UHD display, representing 100 percent of the Adobe color gamut, as well as a touchscreen, IR camera standard, 4TB of M.2 PCIe premier storage and 64GB of memory at 2667MHz.

“When we set out to create the ThinkPad P1, we knew our challenge was to build a mobile workstation that would carry the legacy of professional power and reliability of our ThinkPad portfolio, but also meet our customer’s need for a thin, light and sleek design,” explains Rob Herman, general manager of workstations for Lenovo. “Whether you are looking for power, the lightest mobile workstation around or sleek and slim tech-envy, the ThinkPad P1 delivers on all counts, period.”

Lenovo also introduced the new ThinkPad P72, a purpose-built 17-inch unit that includes the latest 8th Gen Intel Xeon and Core processors, and the most powerful Nvidia Quadro graphics – up to P5200 – to tackle the most demanding workflows. With up to 6TB of storage, 128GB of memory and 16GB of Intel Optane memory, users can handle immense data sets with vast amounts of compute power.

Both the ThinkPad P1 and P72 will be available at the end of August starting at $1,949 and $1,799, respectively.
