Lenovo ThinkPad P71-20HK0004GE

Lenovo has released its new mobile ThinkPad P71 workstation. The Lenovo ThinkPad P71 is all set for connecting up your choice of virtual reality headset and enjoying the very best in immersive 3D graphics. It is also the ideal machine for computing professionals, such as designers and developers, and it is one of the best portable gaming PCs out this year. The laptop has Oculus, HTC, and Nvidia certifications, and it's powered by Intel's Xeon E3-v6 processors for mobile, while its GPU options max out at Nvidia's Quadro 5000. The Intel Xeon E3-v6 processor is a great CPU that has the kick of a desktop in a convenient portable size, and it delivers the power needed to handle the 4K display and the VR-ready engine. Lenovo obviously knows how important storage is to a good laptop. Not only it has a staggering 2 TB right there on the internal drive, but there is an optional upgrade as well. Stick with old school media and choose the disk drive version, or have it swapped out for a further 1 TB SSD in the disk bay. The laptop is capable of an impressive 3840 x 2160 pixel output for viewing UHD content at its full potential. This is achieved by taking advantage of in-plane switching and give the NVIDIA Quadro graphics a boost. The card also works well with a connected virtual reality headset or device, producing a high and consistent frame rate and a cool 4K display. The ThinkPad P71 features Lenovo’s award-winning keyboard, which is made better with a redesigned Touchpad. Full-sized and spill-resistant, the legendary ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard is renowned for its full array of keys, excellent feel, and TrackPoint pointing device. As for sound output, the laptop has Dolby Home Theater that maximizes volume output of the built-in stereo speakers without distortion. The user can enjoy a crisp, clear, immersive surround sound experience with all the power and nuance of the cinema, and all the immediacy of live performance. The 17-inch laptop weighs in at a hefty 7.6 lb (3.4 kg), coming with 64 GB RAM and four storage devices with up to 1 TB of SSD storage. It also features a 4K UHD display with the option to switch to an FHD touch display and dual-fan cooling. Operating system options consist of Windows 10, Ubuntu Linux, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. For true mobility, a user can configure the laptop with WWAN connectivity, so the user can access 3G or 4G networks provided by a third-party cellular phone service company. It provides a range of connectivity options, including four USB 3.0 ports, dual Intel Thunderbolt 3 ports to help move big files, a docking connector, and smartcard reader.

86.4% Lenovo ThinkPad P71 (i7, P3000, 4K) Workstation Review | Notebookcheck
Quiet and powerful. The ThinkPad P71 is Lenovo's biggest and most powerful mobile workstation. It is a powerful machine, but still pleasantly quiet in many situations. You also get a very good 4K UHD panel.

90% Lenovo ThinkPad P71 review: For those that want power
Source: Neowin English
Most of the portable PCs that I review are general purpose devices. You know the deal, they're ultrabooks that have U-series processors, integrated graphics, maybe a 360-degree hinge, and so on. The Lenovo ThinkPad P71 is not a general purpose PC.

The $4,643 ThinkPad P71 gives big-budget professionals a fantastic screen for their work, a comfortable keyboard for producing their projects and tons of horsepower. We just wish the SSD were a bit faster, especially at this price.

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.


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA Quadro P3000: High-end workstation graphics card based on the 16nm GP106 chip (similar to the consumer GTX 1060) from the Pascal architecture.NVIDIA Quadro P5000: High-end workstation graphics card based on the 16nm GP104 chip from the Pascal architecture.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  

7820HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 2.9 - 3.9 GHz. It is the second fastest model of the consumer H-series in the beginning of 2017. The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1100 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake).Intel Xeon:
