Lenovo ThinkPad P51

 

When you need a notebook with high-end graphics performance for 3D modeling, video editing, animation or engineering applications, you want a mobile workstation. Lenovo's 15.6-inch ThinkPad P51 can handle all of those demanding tasks and more thanks to...

Strong performance; All-day battery life; Vibrant display

Heavy and bulky; Important ports are on the back; Screen dimmer than competitors'

Ideal for 3D modelers and engineers, the ThinkPad P51 packs plenty of power into a somewhat-bulky 15-inch chassis.

Lenovo ThinkPad P51 Review

 

This large 15.6-incher is a true workstation thanks to its available Intel Xeon processor and Nvidia Quadro graphics.

Beautiful 4K display ; Excellent keyboard, touch pad, and pointing stick ; Available server-class components ; Impressive battery life

Options quickly add to the price ; Only a 1-year warranty is standard

Kısa inceleme: Lenovo ThinkPad P51 (Xeon, 4K) çalışma istasyonu

 

Daha fazla performans ve çok iyi ekran. Lenovo'nun ThinkPad P51 modeli tam teşeküllü 15 inçlik bir çalışma istasyonu. Güçlü Xeon quad-core işlemci ve Nvidia profesyonel grafik kartı ile gelmekte. Özellikle 4K ekran tatmin edici.

Test: Lenovo ThinkPad P51 (Xeon, 4K) (sammanfattning)

 

Mer prestanda och en mycket bra skärm. Lenovos ThinkPad P51 är en fullfjädrad mobil arbetsstation med 15-tumsskärm, fyrkärnig Xeon-processor och en proffs-GPU från Nvidia. Men det som verkligen imponerade i det här testet var skärmen.
