The only thing that keeps the Lenovo ThinkPad P17 Gen 2 from claiming an Editors' Choice award is its colossal bulk; unless you truly want a plus-size screen, there's no need to punish yourself by carrying this beefy workstation when equal or nearly equal power is available in lighter packages. (The ThinkPad P1 Gen 4 is literally less than half the weight.) But the P17's performance is faultless and its display tops the charts for quality as well as surface area. Got unlimited work to do? Get an unlimited laptop.

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former years, this weight was representative for laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, 17 inch laptops weigh less than that.
