Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad P70-20ER000CGE
The Lenovo ThinkPad P70 is a processing powerhouse on wheels. When Intel launched its mobile Xeon processors, it was easy to see that they were investing a lot of resources into transforming the traditional view of a desktop into something more mobile and versatile, and products like the Lenovo ThinkPad P70 help define this growing product category. Lenovo's attention to detail comes through in everything from the spill-proof keyboard to BIOS settings that customize the keyboard layout for accessibility. While the Lenovo ThinkPad P70 is an excellent product, it does have some downsides. The unit weighs more than enough, and the camera's resolution could be better.

You can't talk about the ThinkPad P70 without addressing its size. At 16.38 inches (W) by 10.85 inches (D) by 1.18-1.35 inches (H) and 7.3 pounds, this 17.3-inch laptop is big. However, Lenovo wasn't being lazy with its design. That size and weight is the result of a well equipped mobile workstation that would give some desktop workstations a run for their money.
