Lenovo ThinkPad P15 Gen 1 laptop review: Mobile workstation with a weak spot in the keyboard

Chubby performance bundle. After we tested the ThinkPad T15g with a GeForce GPU, we now take a look at the Lenovo ThinkPad P15 Gen 1 model. The entry-level version of the workstation fares well in terms of the performance, but it shows a surprising weakness in the input devices.
Benjamin Herzig, 👁 Andreas Osthoff (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

When Lenovo introduced the ThinkPad P50 into the market in 2015, it was the first model of the new ThinkPad P series, which was supposed to form the workstation branch instead of the W series. Since then, Lenovo has expanded the series, but the classic workstations still represent the core of the workstation portfolio. Last year's 15-inch model of this branch was called Lenovo ThinkPad P53. The current successor is not called ThinkPad P54 but Lenovo ThinkPad P15 Gen 1, following the new ThinkPad naming scheme.

Lenovo is not only introducing a new naming scheme with the ThinkPad P15, but also a new case design. But since it shares the same build with the Lenovo ThinkPad T15g Gen 1, we will not report here on the aspects of the design, features, and input devices in detail. You can find more information on these areas in our ThinkPad T15g review.

Most important changes from the Lenovo ThinkPad P53

Externally, the Lenovo ThinkPad P15 Gen 1 looks very similar to its predecessor. However, under the hood and in the black case, many things have changed from the ThinkPad P53. Except for the magnesium frame inside, the case of the ThinkPad P15 is now completely made of glass-fiber plastic, whereas the case bottom was still made from a magnesium-aluminum alloy in the P53. While the general stability does not suffer from this, the haptics in some sense do, since you can just feel the difference between metal and plastic.

Surprisingly, Lenovo makes a big blunder in terms of the workmanship: As in the ThinkPad T15g, the keyboard has some noticeable give in the left bottom corner.  Also, not all the design changes are positive: the two status LEDs below the display have been removed, just like the dedicated touchpad keys.

While some of these changes leave us rather concerned, we for sure like the improved maintenance options and increased modularity. In the predecessor, you still had to take apart the whole case in order to access the cooling system, but in the ThinkPad P15, it is sufficient to just remove the bottom plate. Removing the keyboard with number pad is similarly easy, giving access to two of the four RAM slots.

Like many other ThinkPad laptops, the Lenovo ThinkPad P15 Gen 1 also offers a selection of available displays that all have the 15.6-inch diagonal and 16:9 format in common:

  • Full-HD (1920 x 1080), IPS LCD, 300 cd/m², 72% NTSC, matte
  • Full-HD (1920 x 1080), IPS LCD, 500 cd/m², 72% NTSC, matte, Dolby Vision
  • 4K-UHD (3840 x 2160), IPS LCD, 600 cd/m², 100% AdobeRGB, matte, Dolby Vision
  • 4K-UHD (3840 x 2160), OLED, 400 cd/m² (peak 500 cd/m²), 100% DCI-P3, glossy, Dolby Vision, touchscreen

At a measured average brightness of 304 cd/m², the entry-level display in our test unit achieves the promised brightness value. While this makes the display the darkest of our comparison, this is not surprising, since the other workstations are equipped with 4K UHD displays and the ThinkPad P53 had the brighter Full-HD LCD. 

The below-average brightness distribution stands out, but there is no noticeable shading looking with your naked eyes.

In the state of delivery, the display is not calibrated well, which can clearly be seen in the values we measured with CalMan and the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 color meter: The ThinkPad LCD has a green tint. A decent calibration will remedy this, and we are offering the corresponding color profile as a free download. However, due to the calibration, the maximum brightness in the center of the LCD panel will drop by about 60 cd/m².

We are a bit disappointed about the contrast value. While 751:1 is not extremely bad, it is also not a good value. There are also some percentage points missing to fully cover the sRGB color space, but this was also the case in the ThinkPad P53 with the 500-cd/m² display.

While you can generally also use the Lenovo ThinkPad P15 Gen 1 outdoors, this is only the case in the shade or on cloudy days. For direct sunlight, it would need a higher brightness.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
32.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18.8 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
41.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22 ms rise
↘ 19.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 55 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (37.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 24270 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 24270 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 24270 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21103 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The viewing angle stability of the IPS display offers no reason for complaint.

Performance: The CPU of the Lenovo laptop can consume more than 100 watts

A central improvement compared to the ThinkPad P53 is the fact that the GPU options are not tied to the CPUs anymore, because the graphics chips are not soldered onto the mainboard but integrated via a separate daughter board now. This means that any of the professional GPUs of the Nvidia Turing generation (Quadro T1000, T2000, RTX 3000, RTX 4000 Max-Q, RTX 5000 Max-Q) can be combined with all the available Intel CPUs from the "Comet Lake H" series (Core i5-10400H, i7-10750H, i7-10850H, i7-10875H, i9-10885H, i9-10980HK, Xeon W-10855MW-10885M).

The RAM can be completely upgraded, and the four DDR4-2933 SO-DIMM slots allow for a maximum of 128 GB - in the Xeon models even as ECC storage. In terms of the storage solution, there are only two M.2-2280 SSDs left, while the predecessor still allowed for three as well as offering some HDD options for some models.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-10750H belongs to the "Comet Lake H" series from Intel and is probably one of the last 14-nanometer chips in a laptop. The six cores with a nominal TDP of 45 watts have a theoretical maximum clock speed of 5 GHz (basic clock speed: 2.6 GHz). Our CPU list can help you to compare additional benchmarks. 

With almost 130 watts (short boost) and 75 watts (constant) under multicore load, the processor in the ThinkPad P15 can consume significantly more than 45 watts. While this contributes to a good CPU performance, it still cannot compete with octa-core CPUs. In addition, the CPU is fairly inefficient, and the considerably more efficient AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 4750U in the affordable ThinkPad L15 is faster under load on all cores.

In battery operation, the CPU performance is throttled with a maximum consumption of 65 watts. At 1172 points, the CB15 multicore result turns out about 10% lower.

GPU-Z Nvidia Quadro T1000
GPU-Z Nvidia Quadro T1000

The Nvidia Quadro T1000 represents the entry-level option in the Lenovo ThinkPad P15. Of course, the Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 Max-Q in the ThinkPad P53 predecessor is considerably faster, but this is no surprise. A more interesting comparison is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 of the Lenovo ThinkPad T15p. Depending on the test, the T1000 has an advantage of between about 50 to 75%, here. So if you want a lot of graphics performance, even the entry-level configuration of the ThinkPad P15 is a better choice than the ThinkPad T15p. Additional comparisons are available in our GPU comparison list.

As in the processor, a slight performance reduction in battery mode can also be determined here. At 9654 points in the 3DMark 11 GPU test, the performance turned out about 15% lower.

Gaming Performance

Generally, workstations are not meant for gaming, but they are not completely unsuitable. The P15 is also able to display modern games smoothly in Full-HD resolution and at high detail settings. However for 4K gaming, the ThinkPad T15g with a GeForce RTX would be more suitable.

Emissions: The fans can become louder in the ThinkPad P15

Noise Emissions

In idle operation, Lenovo manages to leave the fans turned off most of the time, and if they do run, they are hardly audible at 28,8 dB(a). Under load, the situation changes: A noise level of 37.7 dB(a) can be easily noticed, and the maximum noise level of 44.6 dB(a) can become annoying. Compared to the ThinkPad P53, the two fans can become significantly louder here.

We did not notice any coil whine.
