Lisa Gade reviews the Lenovo ThinkPad P50, a 15.6” mobile workstation with Intel quad core i7 and Xeon processors and NVIDIA Quadro M1000M and M2000M graphics. It’s the successor to the ThinkPad W541 and smaller companion to the ThinkPad P70 we reviewed, the P50 is a classic mobile workstation that’s beefy and powerful.

It weighs 5.8 lbs. (2.5 kg) and is 1.02” (25.9mm) thick. it’s available with FHD displays (the FHD touch screen option also supports the Lenovo ThinkPad Pro Pen, a Wacom AES pen). We have the matte, non touch 4K IPS display with wide color gamut and a built-in X-Rite Pantone calibrator on the wrist rest.

Ours is equipped with the Intel 6th generation Skylake Xeon E3 1505M quad core, 45 watt processor clocked at 2.8 GHz, but you can save a bit of money and get it with the Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad core CPU. It has Intel WiFi AC 8260,…

  1. Another great review Lisa! 🙂

    This machine looks like a fantastic desktop replacement for a CAD user like myself. Love the build and expandability, quite amazing compared to ultrabooks. Odd the screen is so small within the bezels mind.

  2. I don't work with particularly complex Autocad drawings but 2016 really does know how to bring my laptop to a crawl. If I could work out how to pirate 2012 for Windows 10 it would probably help!

  3. Very good review as always – and in this case my experience matches! Am very satisfied with my P50 – worth speccing the ram to start with if you don't want to delve under the keyboard, lenovo's price isn't too bad. Certainly no ultrabook – but compared to the bricks of old it can be carried fairly easily. And just great to have those ports, the full keyboard, decent screen and more performance than I 'need'. Expensive but as often's the case the price is eventually forgotten when the result's so good.

  4. Been loving your videos, so much info! Can I suggest a Dell 7710 workstation for review? I can't make my mind up between the Lenovo P70 and this. I was curious on the pros and cons between them as far as build quality, everyday use (docking/multiple monitors, 4K panels, and i7 vs Xeon), and whether Dell or Lenovo warranty and customer care. Also could I suggest one with the Quadro M5000M for comparison, and maybe test 2 512GB Samsung 950 PRO M.2s in RAID!

  5. You are so sweet, and you cover all these things from a good, practical viewpoint, useful to someone who would actually be using the device for work and going under the hood to make repairs or replacements, and to the heavy work at home user rather than gaming or looking trendy …

  6. lisa I really like your videos and I m a big of your, while reviewing 2016 razer blade you made that funny sound about fan nang nang nang and instantly you tell that god what did I do, was really funny, always a fan rommel from gangtok, sikkim, if you have time then pls google sikkim, and see how much fan base you have.
