The only real sacrifice that you're making with the ThinkPad P1 is battery life, and even that isn't as bad as I'd expect it to be with these specs. Normally, a 45W CPU and a 4GB dGPU means two or three hours of battery life, and that fact that I could stretch it to almost six hours was pretty good.
