Today’s laptops are wonderful, but not everyone is a fan. Some dislike the trend towards mediocre keyboards, glossy displays, and limited connectivity. These fans of old-school laptops bemoan decreasing functionality alongside increasing prices. If this rings true for you, you’ll love the ThinkPad P50.

Armed with powerful specs, a beautiful 4K resolution display, responsive keyboard, and a durable chassis the Lenovo ThinkPad P50 workstation is an excellent machine. Let’s not forget to mention the long lasting battery life means users can stay productive even when they’re away from a power outlet. Power users willing to give up a bit of portability may want to consider Lenovo’s P70 model, which comes equipped with an even faster Nvidia M4000M GPU. Conversely, those who don’t need quite as much performance may want to consider either MacBook Pro or the Dell Precision 5510, which both come in at more than a pound lighter than P50.

Like its stablemate the P70, the P50 is wasted on word processors and spreadsheets; it offers serious muscle for plowing through demanding design, engineering, scientific, oil and gas, and similar applications. If you leave your desk only occasionally, the weighty P70 is easier on the eyes, but the P50 offers a better blend of portability and power.

The ThinkPad P50 delivers workstation-class performance, a snappy keyboard and a gorgeous 4K display, as well as over 8 hours of battery life -- enough to leave its heavy power brick at home. Creative professionals may prefer the MacBook Pro, which is 1.4 pounds lighter and offers similar battery life.
