86.6% Lenovo ThinkPad P73 Laptop Review: Big workstation slowed down by poor heat management | Notebookcheck
The highest level of performance – that is what the Lenovo ThinkPad P70 stands for. The recent Lenovo ThinkPad P73 contains Intel "Coffee Lake Refresh" CPUs and the Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000. In theory, this should guarantee an extremely high level of performance. In our comprehensive review however, the Lenovo ThinkPad P73 cannot fully deliver on its performance promise.

88.2% Lenovo ThinkPad P73 Review - Mobile Workstation with Core i9, RTX 4000 and 4K | Notebookcheck
The ThinkPad P73 has been around for a while, but Lenovo had to deliver some BIOS updates before the device could use the full potential of its components. Neither Intel, nor Nvidia, introduced major updates in the last 18 months, so the P73 is still up to date in the beginning of 2021.

In conclusion, as said earlier, this laptop proposes the potential buyer with a bargain: you’re supposed to accept the form-factor, but the laptop needs to compensate with top performance and thermals. Based on our test, the P73 fails to meet the last part of this bargain, at least in part, that’s why I find this a tough sell in its class. The Core i9 doesn’t reach its potential, and the top-tier RTX chips are lower-power implementations, not the full-size variants available with some of the competition.

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.
