Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad P1-20MD000NGE

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme / P1 Long-term Review
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The P1 remains my overall favourite laptop to date, and it will hopefully only improve as better software and firmware address the GPU/battery drain bugs. You aren’t going to find a laptop with better build quality, input, I/O, and overall performance anytime soon, in my opinion. The next contender to beat the P1 / X1 Extreme is likely simply to be the next iteration of this model. Lenovo just needs to step up their support game and ensure that their updates are being thoroughly tested before being pushed out to end users. If you are looking for a reliable, powerful, and well-designed laptop for professional uses and some gaming, I still highly recommend buying the P1 or X1 Extreme.

Model:

The Lenovo ThinkPad P1 is the lightest workstation laptop that is geared towards professional use. Consumers are able to play games on this laptop due to the respectable graphics card, but it is not geared for gaming in particular. So, the ThinkPad P1 is a thin and light workstation. It is built around portability, with a 36.1 cm x 24.6 cm x 18.4 mm dimension and a weight of about 1.7 kg. The laptop is covered in a soft-touch material. Now, normally, soft-touch materials on laptops degrade over time, they just become gunky after a year or two. However, the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 does not show fingerprints readily and, from Lenovo’s history with soft-touch materials, it lasts a very long time, the very durable finish will still look brand new after a year or two of use. Regarding the ports on the Lenovo ThinkPad P1, the laptop has two USB-A ports, two Thunderbolt 3’s on the left, and there is also an SD card slot on the right. The ThinkPad P1 has a very solid build. The hinge is very durable, it has very little flex on the screen and almost no flex on the chassis. Now, the build quality also extends to the bottom of the device, meaning that the bottom panel can be easily taken out, with only six Phillips screws. Also, the screws themselves are still attached to the base plate through see clips. Consumers will have access to basically everything in the laptop: Wi-Fi card, two RAM slots, and two NVMes.

The Lenovo ThinkPad P1 uses ECC memory, up to 64 GB of it, and the laptop runs on a XEON processor, clearly built for professional use. The battery life on the ThinkPad P1 can last up to 13 hours and also comes with a fast-charging charger, which is actually one of the fastest charging batteries in a laptop. Consumers will be able to get approximately 80% of the battery full in about 30 minutes. The laptop has a 4K panel screen, it is bright, color-accurate and touch-sensitive. The bezels are not the thinnest and there is a chin to the laptop. The webcam of the device is located in the traditional position, above the screen, providing users a normal webcam angle. The laptop’s screen folds back flat, it has a touch screen and it can be used with a Lenovo Pen. The ThinkPad P1 has excellent CPU performance, the XEON processor performs better than a more common 8750H. The GPU in the ThinkPad P1, however, is the Quadro P2000 Max-Q and it is most equivalent to a 1050 TI. Now, the ThinkPad P1 is not built for gaming, so consumers will not be able to get amazing performance in games, as it is geared towards more professional applications.

NVIDIA Quadro P2000: Mid-range workstation graphics card based on the 14nm GP107 chip (similar to the consumer GTX 1050 Ti) from the Pascal architecture. The Quadro GPUs offer certified drivers, which are optimized for stability and performance in professional applications (CAD, DCC, medical, prospection, and visualizing applications). With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8850H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.3 GHz (4.1 GHz with 4 cores, 4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
