Lenovo Goes for Power and Portability with New ThinkPad Mobile Workstations

It honestly looks like Lenovo’s design teams just never sleep. They’re constantly updating their lineups to make them faster, thinner, stronger, and the new updated Lenovo ThinkPad P Series Mobile Workstations are the latest to get refreshed. They’re even going peak late-90’s with a ThinkPad X1 Extreme (only counts if you hear it in a raspy pro wrestler voice).

The ThinkPad P15 and P17 come with Ultra Performance Mode, which allows the user to tweak all the performance settings and customize precisely where they want extra power. Lenovo does note that the tradeoff for this ability to supercharge aspects of the computing process is that you might have more fan noise than a typical ThinkPad. They have reengineered the thermal design, so you hopefully won’t brand your knees with a ThinkPad logo if you’re working a little too hard on the couch. Furthering the idea that you can customize the performance, the daughter card is modular, so users can upgrade and change the configuration if needed. ThinkPad P15 and P17 will be out this July, starting at $1,979 and $2,119.

If what you need is power and portability, the ThinkPad P1 Gen 3 is also available, with an anti-smudge coating and a UHD LCD screen. It will also have LTE so you can work on the go, all starting at $2,019 this July. Also coming soon is the ThinkPad p15v, which comes in at a more wallet and budget-friendly $1,349, also in July.

Last but not least, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3 (seriously, everyone hears Macho Man Randy Savage when they read that name, right?). This is the ThinkPad you want for speed and productivity, with a 15.6in screen, Core i9, LTE-A, and Modern Standby, which allows emails and updates to come in and be ready for you as soon as you open the lid. Prices will be as follows:
