Lenovo just introduced the Lenovo ThinkPad P51s mobile workstation. Powered by the latest Intel Kaby Lake processor with an NVIDIA Quadro GPU, the Lenovo ThinkPad P51s (lowest price on Amazon) remains incredibly svelte and light. Check out their tech briefing on the ThinkPad P51s, and our hands-on preview of this ultra-light mobile workstation!
The Lenovo ThinkPad P51s Tech Briefing
The new Lenovo ThinkPad P51s (lowest price on Amazon) is a 15.6″ mobile workstation that weighs about 2 kg. That incredible feat is due to its fiberglass-reinforced plastic construction, which is built to MIL-SPEC (military specifications) requirements.
This allows it to be used in extreme conditions, whether it’s exposure to sand, high temperature and humidity, or even high vibration and high altitudes. It is also shock-proof.
An interesting and useful feature is its Power Bridge Technology, which allows for hot-swappable rear batteries. This means you can swap batteries for virtually unlimited mobile computing on-the-go.
In this video, Lenovo ThinkStation Business Manager, Jason Wong, gives us an in-depth look at its key features.
