Notebookcheck's Top 10 Workstation Laptops

March 2020 update. Top 10 Workstation laptops with professional graphics cards reviewed by Notebookcheck
Benjamin Herzig, 👁 Andreas Osthoff (translated by Andreas Osthoff),

Mobile workstations are the most powerful devices in the business segment. They should offer a combination of typical business features and powerful hardware that has been optimized for reliability, stability and performance. Comprehensive support options, system-specific accessories, long spare-parts availability and various warranty options, are typical for this class of devices. You can also often find ports that have already been discarded in consumer products but are still being used in companies. The product cycles in this segment are very long and can be as long as three years in some cases. The pricing in this premium segment usually starts at significantly more than 1000 USD/Euros and can quickly reach a few thousand Euros/Dollars.

As well as the above-mentioned factors, one of the main contributors to the cost is the graphics chips. Unlike the familiar consumer GPUs, they support special features and are designed for stability, compatibility and reliability in combination with certified software. These are not very interesting for private users, but can make a major difference for businesses.

Due to the long availability of mobile workstations, we look at devices from the last 18 months. The ranking can be different from the automated top list. The changes can include devices that have been on the market longer than 18 months, duplicates, review updates or highly recommended models according to the editorial point of view (price/performance, mobility, upgradeability, etc.). Deviations are explained in the respective editors' comments.

The prices are usually based on the review configuration. If this configuration is no longer available, then we have selected similarly equipped alternatives. We have also listed the starting price for each base configuration.

Performance is a key element of a mobile workstation. Mobile workstations in ultrabook format rather focus on mobility. While they are usually not poor notebooks, they seldom belong to the top models because of their significantly lower CPU and GPU performance.

Editor's Comments

1st – Lenovo ThinkPad P53

Lenovo ThinkPad P53
Lenovo ThinkPad P53

The ThinkPad P53 is a traditional mobile workstation. Accordingly, its case is not particularly thin but in return you get plentiful connectivity and, most importantly, plenty of performance. Particularly the GPU has been upgraded significantly over last year’s ThinkPad P52. While last year, Nvidia’s high-end Quadro GPUs were a ThinkPad P7x exclusive the P53 can be equipped with a Quadro RTX 5000. Unfortunately, it is the slowest and least powerful SKU of the RTX 5000, which is not immediately obvious prior to purchasing the laptop. Both Nvidia and Lenovo need to improve their communication strategies in this regard.

Unfortunately, CPU performance took a hit from the faster GPU as the cooler is incapable of properly cooling both chips under combined load. Display quality was also improved overall, and this year even the standard FHD panel offers an excellent quality and is more than acceptable for most use cases. Many qualities of last year’s predecessor are still present, including the excellent input devices, the robust case, and the great connectivity.

2nd – Lenovo ThinkPad P1 2019

Lenovo ThinkPad P1 2019

The ThinkPad P1 2019 is Lenovo’s sleek portable 15.6-inch workstation laptop. The differences to last year’s ThinkPad P1 are minor overall, and the case remained unchanged. Only the CPU and GPU were upgraded and are the only two components that set the P1 apart from the ThinkPad X1 Extreme. The latter comes with a standard GeForce RTX GPU.

The ThinkPad P1 2019’s primary focus is on mobility and portability, and accordingly cannot offer the same level of performance as the larger and bulkier ThinkPad P53, especially in regard to GPU performance. CPU performance, albeit closer, was also not particularly impressive. In return, the P1 remained very quiet under load. Other qualities include the excellent input devices and the bright matte display that would have certainly benefited from a better color space coverage.

3rd – Lenovo ThinkPad P73

The Lenovo ThinkPad P73 completes our top 3 in this list closely following its siblings. The largest model of Lenovo’s ThinkPad P-series offers the same qualities as the smaller P53, including the incredibly robust and sturdy case, plentiful connectivity, and superb upgradeability. Thanks to its 17-inch display it offers much more screen real estate than its two smaller siblings.

To our surprise, the ThinkPad P73’s GPU performance was disappointing as it throttled under sustained load. In addition, the P73 gets comparatively hot, which Lenovo should be able to address via a BIOS update and a modified fan curve.

4th – Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition

Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition
Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition

Razer made its name as gaming laptop manufacturer, and when talking about portable workstations Razer is one of the last names that comes to mind. Nevertheless, the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition managed to make our top 10 list of portable workstations. It is anything but a traditional portable workstation, which does not have to be a bad thing considering that this is also the case for other devices such as for example Dell’s Precision 5530. We particularly liked its 4K OLED touchscreen, its high-quality metal case, and the fact that it stayed comparatively cool overall.

All things considered the Blade 15 Studio Edition does not suffer from too many flaws, although the two that we did find can be showstoppers for many users. For one, it lacks mass storage upgrade options, which are practically mandatory for portable workstations. In addition, its keyboard is nowhere its competitors’.

5th – Dell Precision 5540

Dell Precision 5540

The Dell Precision 5540 is a direct competitor to the Lenovo ThinkPad P1. In other words, it is a small portable 15.6-inch workstation. It shares the overall design approach with the P1 as well. Dell took the standard consumer XPS 15 and equipped it with a more powerful GPU and additional CPU options. And just like on the P1 the 5540’s cooler was incapable of keeping the system cool under load resulting in very high case temperatures. In return, fan noise remained acceptable and never got too excessive.

Our review unit’s OLED panel sacrificed battery life for excellent image quality. If you are out and about often a different display might be a better choice.

6th – Dell Precision 7730

Dell Precision 7730
Dell Precision 7730

Dell’s Precision 7730 is the largest and most powerful mobile Workstation the American manufacturer has on offer. Compared to its 7720 predecessor the new version is roughly 5 mm thinner and around 300 g lighter than before while at the same time retaining what makes a mobile Workstation great: a multitude of various ports and excellent performance.

The input devices deserve praise, as does the robust case and the fast SD card reader. Its largest downsides were its poor battery life as well as its alarmingly high surface temperatures.

7th – MSI WT75 8SM

MSI WT75 8SM
MSI WT75 8SM

The MSI WT75 8SM is a gigantic portable desktop PC in every sense of the word. It comes with an upgradeable desktop-class CPU, which is uncommon even for portable workstations. It also includes speakers with extra subwoofers and is easily maintainable.

Unfortunately, MSI decided to put a warranty seal at a very unfortunate location, thereby complicating maintenance unnecessarily. Other drawbacks include the grainy matte display, the massive power supply, and the device’s poor battery life.

8th – Fujitsu Celsius H980

Fujitsu Celsius H980
Fujitsu Celsius H980

While Dell, HP and Lenovo may be the top dogs in the mobile workstation market Fujitsu is also a force to be considered. And their Fujitsu Celsius H980 may just be Fujitsu’s ticket to the top considering how easily it made our top 10 list.

Its most important and prominent features are the bright matte display, its simple and straightforward maintainability, its fast SD card reader, and the swappable battery. In return, we take issue with its painfully annoying fan control and would have also wished for a better color space coverage.

9th – HP ZBook Studio G5

HP ZBook Studio G5
HP ZBook Studio G5

ZBook Studio, third attempt – HP updated its slim high-end workstation with modern processors and graphics cars, including a complete redesign of the chassis. The new HP ZBook Studio G5 convinces with its extremely well-built metal chassis, the good and matte 4K-UHD display as well as the serviceability, which is great with two SSD and two RAM slots. The device offers many ports and performs very well. Negative aspects include the high weight compared to its direct rivals, for example. The performance is also limited on batter power and in the stress test. The very high price might scare off some users as well.

10th – MSI WS75 9TL-636

MSI WS75 9TL-636
MSI WS75 9TL-636

Unlike the much thicker WT75 the MSI WS75 9TL-636 does not feature an upgradeable CPU and also lacks the former’s subwoofer. In return, it is much more compact, lighter, and still manages to maintain a very high level of performance. It offers a selection of ports expected of a portable workstation, and unlike its bulkier sibling even acceptable battery life.

As expected, the compact case requires its own set of compromises, the least of which are the missing subwoofers. Overall rigidity is in dire need of improvement, and maintainability is fairly limited.
