Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga 20GQ-000EUS
On-the-go workstation. Versatility is the name of the game as the P40 Yoga targets light workstation users with touchscreen features and a dedicated Quadrio GPU. For a starting price of $1500 USD, however, we were expecting a bit more in terms of performance and features.

The Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga is a solid laptop that sits right at the price it should for its power and feature set. It offers better performance than general business laptops, convertible or otherwise, but can't compete with more expensive mobile workstations. Yoga functionality doesn't add too much to a mobile workstation, which is probably is served well just by keeping the size and weight down as Lenovo has done here, but it doesn't hurt if you think you'd make use of it as a tablet.

The Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga is a unique laptop, and thus it's hard to pit it against the competition--there really isn't a direct competitor. The closest would be the Microsoft Surface Book (detachable rather than yoga-style) and Lenovo's own near mirror image ThinkPad 14 with NVIDIA GeForce 940M graphics as sold by Best Buy.

At the end of the day the Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga is a very unique hybrid PC for a very specific type of user. If you’re someone who needs the dedicated graphics performance of a mobile workstation but also needs the flexibility of a 2-in-1 that you can convert into a tablet then this is absolutely the best choice on the market.

NVIDIA Quadro M500M: Workstation graphics card based on the 28 nm GM108 Maxwell chip with 384 shaders and a 64-bit memory interface. Compared to the faster M600M, the M500M features only DDR3 graphics memory with a 64-bit bus and is therefore similar to the old Quadro K620M (also Maxwell GM108).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
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.
6600U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company.
