The maintenance manual for the 15.6-inch ThinkPad is already available ahead of any official launch dates or SKUs.

Leaks oftentimes come from unreliable sources, but the manufacturers themselves may sometimes be responsible by inadvertently revealing information ahead of official reveal plans. This appears to be the case for the ThinkPad E560p as images and even the maintenance manual can be found for the notebook through Lenovo's website. The E560p made a quiet debut at CES Asia, albeit with no specific SKUs or model numbers.

Core specifications include:

  • 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) or UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS display
  • Core i5-6300HQ or i7-6700HQ options
  • Optional GeForce GTX 960M w/ integrated HD Graphics 530
  • Up to 32 GB DDR4 RAM (2x SODIMM slots)
  • 2.5-inch SATA III slot (supports 9.5 mm drives) + M.2 2280 PCIe SSD
  • 47 Wh internal battery
  • Silver and Black color options

Another notable feature will be the small maintenance hatch for quicker access to both internal storage drives and one of the SODIMM slots. Access to other components, however, will require removing the entire bottom panel. The display lid is expected to be mostly aluminum while RealSense will be optional for Windows Hello support. Interestingly, Lenovo is passing on the USB Type-C port that is becoming increasingly common on newer Ultrabooks and business notebooks.

Concrete launch dates and prices have not yet been announced for the ThinkPad E560p. Judging by the early availability of its manual and specifications, however, an official announcement will likely come sooner rather than later.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
