Lenovo ThinkPad P52 review – workstation with brand new hardware and old school look
Source: Laptop Media English
So, would we recommend the Lenovo ThinkPad P52? Well, if you are into pure performance – yes. It is one of the best laptops in the workstation segment you could get. However, if you lean towards a more modernistic feel and representative looks, you should turn your attention to the competition.

Thumping its peers in our testing, Lenovo's Quadro-based ThinkPad P52 raises the bar for beefy 15.6-inch mobile workstations in almost every regard.

So the real question is if you need a mobile workstation today. If you do, then the ThinkPad P52 is a great choice, as are all ThinkPads if they fit your particular use case. It has powerful internals that can be configured with up to a Core i7-8850H CPU or Xeon E-2186M, Nvidia Quadro P3200 graphics, 128GB RAM, and a total of 6TB of storage. It also has a beautiful 15.6-inch 4K touchscreen, or you can get it in 1080p for better battery life.

Comment

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.
